Palm Springs Traveler's Notebook

Palm Springs Traveler's Notebook | Amy Tangerine

Putting together little journals of trips in a simple way might be my new favorite thing. Trying to keep things interesting while not feeling so behind on documenting my memories. This particular Palm Springs trip was taken back in February over Valentine's Day weekend! If you want to check out the video of the trip, it's up on YouTube and also at the bottom of this post.

Ironically, I'm also headed out to Palm Springs today. Will be sure to post a bunch on Instagram if you care to follow along there. And of course I will be taking plenty of video and hopefully have it up sooner rather than later. I am feeling a bit behind, but not letting the overwhelm get to me. Learning to embrace the fact that life is just going to be busy and I need to navigate through to find my flow and be present. I admire those of you who can keep up with your memory keeping. What's your favorite way to record your memories these days? 

Hero Arts Blog Hop!

It seems way too early to be working on December and holiday crafts, but with the way summer has flown by, the holidays will be here before we know it.  Hero Arts launched their Winter release and I'm part of a blog hop with lots of creatives and three prizes up for grabs to celebrate. I wanted to catch up on my December Daily albums and make some new cards to get somewhat of a head start on this year's.

Are all of you going to do Ali Edwards' December Daily project? My plan is to not buy too many new holiday supplies and just use what I have, but we shall see how that goes. I do plan on keeping it simple and using my Canon Selphy CP900 for most of the printing of the photos again.  All supplies are linked below. As you probably already know, I am working on making more videos,  so I shot the whole process of making these on my Canon G7X and posted it here. Would love if you subscribed to my YouTube channel and also be sure to check out all the other awesome crafters who are part of this blog hop! There's a chance to win one of three $25 shopping sprees - if you visit and comment on all of the blog posts. The winners will be drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Sunday, August 28 at 11:59pm PT and we'll announce the winner the following week.

Make It In May

Paige Evans Heart Fancy Free page kit

SUPPLIES: Paige Evans' Fancy Free page kit | Gold DIY Shop American Crafts Mini Stapler | Precision Pen | American Crafts Sticky Thumb Adhesives

Thought about doing a new series on YouTube where we make creative projects together throughout the month of May. Filmed the first one and I am not sure how many we will actually get to making, but I have been feeling really inspired and motivated as of late and want to show you all kinds of DIY's and projects. The first one is using Paige Evans' new page kit with Pink Paislee. Here's the video

Would love to hear your ideas on other projects we can work on together. Let me know in the comments below! Can you believe it's National Scrapbook Day this Saturday? I've got another cool video coming for you then, so you'll be the first to know about it if you're subscribed to my channel.
