ONE.
The new Kit of The Month from CKMedia, designed by Robin Johnson

If you purchase the kit (which is almost sold out btw) then you’ll receive a coupon code to take Robin’s Greatest Love Story class at Big Picture Scrapbooking. I’m excited about this partnership of product + education. I’m working on a Kit of the Month for June (I think) that will be tied to a BPS class (good stuff.) And if you want to hear Geof and I reminisice about the earliest chapter of our own Greatest Love Story, click here  and then click on "idea gallery" — seriously, can’t believe I got him to do this with me (good guy.)

TWO.
The interview I did with Jeanette at Scrap in Style TV. I just really like her and everything she’s doing on her site.

THREE.
The page I did for the Pencil Lines sketch blog …
Winter07

I call this sketch, or type of page,
"slice of life" and have done many variations in an attempt to get LOTS
of not-so-great photos on a layout to summarize an big event or season,
etc…

And you know what? I’m reminded how much I like ghost shapes. Just one of the many brilliant things Heidi has added to my product stash! When you visit Pencil Lines,
as should be expected, you’ll find several additional pages that far outshine my original — I love seeing other designers improve on what I do (this happens frequently) You can get all the details at Pencil Lines — width of photos is approximately 2" give or take a little bit!

FOUR.
The promo page for the 2008 Library of Memories session at BPS. I spent some serious time over the weekend, reviewing and refreshing the syllabus and getting excited about teaching this course again — it’s a big deal for me.

AND … Just in case you did know, it’s NOT TOO LATE to sign up for one of these classes happening RIGHT NOW at BPS.
Got Paint with Emily Falconbridge and Handmade Bookclub with Tena Sprenger
(registration for both of these closes Wendesday, the 9th)

Get Organized and Be Inspired with Wendy Smedley (registration closes on January 13th)

On a personal note, I took down the very last Christmas last night and tucked it all away for another year — well, OK I’m not taking down the cards. I leave those up until March or so. They are all over our the inside of our back door and I love seeing them there — but the fact that everything else is gone means I’m comitted to moving on. It’s the new year, I’m back in the swing of things (taking yoga –that’s another post) and rather enjoying the shorter days and snow outside my window. This surprises me a bit, but I’m embracing it.

Tschuss.

  1. Love your winter page Stacy! You’ve motivated me to create my own! What is the width of the photos on the layout?

  2. I’m doing the ever popular layout a day in Juanuary and I can’t wait til tomorrow to use your multiphoto idea. Thanks! Also, so glad to see LOM coming up! I was in the last course and loved every. single. minute. I can’t wait to sign up again just for a refresher. Thanks for all the inspiration, Stacy! Happy New Year!

    Your blog is always so interesting – I enjoy reading it! I have a few questions about the LOM class:
    1) What is the price for returning LOM students?
    2) When will your new book be released?
    I told myself this was the year to get the photos under control…help me! Thanks for all you do! Joy

  4. I just listened to you & Geoff (they spelled it wrong on the CK site, I think?) talk about your love story and I loved it! I don’t know if I should say this, but in many of his photos, Geoff looks pretty serious, but he’s got quite a great sense of humor, doesn’t he? You two are so cute together. Thanks for sharing that.
    Oh, and I think the link to the Pencil Lines blog is broken, or at least it’s not doing anything for me…
    And like Joy, I’m wondering about your new book! I’m pretty sure that I NEED that book desperately–does it cover what to do with tens of thousands of digital images waiting in virtual-land for the magical time when you actually print them??? ;)

  5. Hi Stacy,
    I just had to say I really enjoyed listing to you and Geof! I was a freshman at BYU in the fall of 1988 and it brought back lots of memories (frozen yogurt!). Thanks so much for sharing that and your blog — I love keeping “tabs” just a little bit on you and your cute family. You are an inspiration to so many!

  6. Stacy – I was just getting ready to e-mail you and tell you how much I enjoyed your interview on SIStv and I thought, “no, I’ll leave a comment on her blog.” :)
    You are so profound! I just loved what you had to say about the industry and what we all need to realize to get it going in the right direction. I even sent a link to my LSS Owner so she could listen and she enjoyed it too.
    You were SO called to do what you do. No one else “gets it” exactly like you do. I just love that about you!

  7. Thanks for the updates. I can’t wait to do the LOM as an alumni. Hopefully I’ll actually put some of what I learn into action – and not just read and think about it.

  8. thank you so much for joining us on Pencil Lines

    Stacey, Will you teach this class next year also? I REEEAAALY want to take it, but I have a wedding to plan this year so I won’t have the time to devote to it like I will need to!! It sounds like an AMAZING class with LOTS of work done by you to teach it!! :) Let me know!

  10. Thanks for the updates. I’ve missed your blog and this is a great post.

  11. Hey Stacy! I’m so happy about your upcoming class (which I’ll be taking again) and book! Can’t wait! And I’m going to do yoga this year too (I’ve always been able to do a split & recently discovered I’d lost this talent – going to get it back in 08!). And loved your audio message for the LOM class :)

    hi stacy! the interview you did for SIS made me exhale! sometimes i get so overwhelmed w/ digital photography, etc. that i almost forget the real reason behind scrapbooking. i think you are uber fantastic! now, my new yrs resolution is to just ask for what i want this year, even at the risk of hearing a big fat heart breaking No! so here it goes. i’ve been totally obsessing about wendy’s book: the organized & inspired scrapbooker, but the truth is my family is just now getting back on its feet from a house fire, and i totally can’t afford it. so i am asking if you have an xtra copy that i can have. there i’ve said it. and i promise you, even if you don’t, you’re still uber fantastic. and i’ll read your very inspirational blog everyday! thank you stacy.

  15. How cute was that love story audio?? We must be about the same age – I remember when Penguin’s Frozen Yogurt was THE hot date spot.
    Loved your buffet analogy in the SIS interview!!

  16. Stacy,
    I know you are crazy about color and are contagiously happy, but I do have to say I LOVE the new b&w semi-serious photo of you on your blog. You are beautiful, inside and out!

  20. love the new blog header Stacy! I think I am going to go make some brownies now!

  21. Hi, Stacy! re: #2 and your interview…I do hope that you don’t think chronological scrapbooking is completely obsolete. In this wonderful hobby of ours, there’s plenty of room for many approaches. I’d like to say that I have a copy of your book and have very much enjoyed it. You have great ideas. I, for one, enjoy a variety of scrapbooking approaches, including chronological layouts.
