“And It’s A Wrap!” a New Video Up!

You know, I think we all have a hard time keeping promises to our selves. I, like many people, enjoy doing things for family and friends, but sometimes I let that get in the way of doing things for myself…and there are only so many minutes in a day!

But, taking the time to start filling my channel with videos, and getting over my camera shyness, is a promise I’m keeping to myself so far!

This is the journaling page in my August Memory Journal. In case your not familiar with my memory keeping process, after I decorate the month’s pages with the photos and ephemera, I write the memory snippets and dates on tags and journaling cards on the last two pages for that month. I’m not sure where this habit came from, but I really enjoy it, so it stuck.

I’m pretty sure I just wanted an excuse to play with my tags! Many paper pads have fun tags and ephemera included, for memory keeping and such, and I’m a total sucker for them!

My goal is to make one video a week. I see people out there making 3 to 4 a week. Where do they find the time!?

Anywho, I hope you will pop over to my YouTube channel, “Patty’s Art Journals”, and watch my little process video on this page spread. It’s about 20 minutes long…I couldn’t make up my mind on color options.

Please let me know what you think. And, if there are any video ideas you would like to see, I would love you to share them with me!

As always,

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a great weekend,

Memory Journal: August…still!

I’m still working on August in my little Memory journal folks. WoW!

In my defense, it was a busy month!

…and for some reason my grandson decided he liked his picture taken.

The little nut!

Summers over on the east side of Washington state are really fun because it stays warm and rains very seldom, so there’s lots to do.

This was a fun page to put together. A business card where we had lunch, a card from a sweet friend, a photo of course, and the fortune from a cookie.

But I’m seriously having fun using up my stash!

Have you been working on a memory journal too? If you are, please let me know in the comments so I can take a look. Also, please let me know how you feel about a video on my memory journal process.

Until next time,

Enjoy the rest ofΒ  your week,

Thank you for popping in,

Shoppe News! Kitschy Ephemera Packs!

By now you probably know how I feel about kitsch…kinda awesome!

In January I made some pretty kitschy art journals, so I thought it would be fun to put some ephemera packs together too.

Filled with all manner of kitschy goodness, cards, game pieces, images, postage stamps, the usual suspects.

Of course with all the orange and green goodness that befits the 60’s and 70’s.

50+ pieces in each pack, including some pretty cool paperclips to decorate your project.

I made eight of these, and each one is totally unique. Please pop over to my Etsy shoppe to see the full line.

…and as always,

Thank you for the visit,

Have a great week,

~Patty

 

 

Video Up! “Quote Journal 2, the Sequel”

Here is the second part of the long, long, “Quote Journal” video I made last week. Apparently I am no longer shy about chatting on my videos, I figure I can edit it out…or not.

Anyway, if your interested in seeing how this page came together , pop on over to my YouTube Channel!

Of course it would be super awesome if you subscribed to my channel!

Let me know what you think!

See you soon,

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a great week,

YouTube Video Up!

Yay! Another video finished and posted on my YouTube channel!

It was so much fun to make, I actually made two!

I was having so much fun that the video stretched into an hour. No amount of editing was going to make an impact, so I split into two.

“Quote Journal 2, the Sequel” is ready to go and I’ll be uploading it some time next week!

In the mean time, if your interested in seeing the process video of this page spread, head on over to my YT channel!

As always,

Thanks for stopping in,

Have an awesome week,

~Patty
