One Of A Kind | Inspiration | iNSD 2022

For those curious, the symbolism for a peacock:

  • Vibrancy
  • Renewal
  • Self-Love
  • Confidence
  • Unique
  • Beauty

This is what we started with to get ideas flowing into what became our collaboration kit “One Of A Kind”. And when the pages started coming in from Soco‘s Creative Team & The Polly’s at The Lilypad, I felt each of those words even more on my heart. I miss designing. I wish I were a confident person or didn’t always have so many worried thoughts about what other’s think, but just seeing these pages touched me & helped those doubts fade just a little bit. I LOVE how this kit came together!

Remember! ♥ Only during the iNSD weekend, you can grab the entire collection for just $6, so don’t wait more to add it to your cart!!!

I promised yesterday to give you more inspiration today, so here are a few of the pages that other’s created with “One Of A Kind”. There are so many that I just grabbed a few to share here! But please check out the Designed By Soco gallery at The Lilypad or Soco’s Blog to see more! I saw an INCREDIBLE peacock feather design by mywisecrafts using our collaboration too when I was on Instagram!

I even created one more myself because just a tiny YES meant so much to me. It really helps to hear from others that you matter & are inspiring them too. It gives an instant motivation boost! I HAD to create more! My girls are pretty inspiring too!

Happy iNSD again! I hope the creativity is flowing just a little bit if you are a scrappy soul!

One Of A Kind | iNSD 2022

First, HI! Long time no see here on the blog! I’m so sorry for neglecting this little space on the web, so forgive any dust or cobwebs you see around here, but I just had to post today because I’m freaking excited to share that I HAVE A DESIGNER COLLABORATION WITH DESIGNED BY SOCO!!

iNSD, International Scrapbooking Day, marks the anniversary of when I found digital scrapbooking. It was 2009 and my first full year out of school & it was everything my creative heart wanted! Fast forward to the end of that year & I began designing as well! That period of time as a designer was put on pause, and has been on pause, since iNSD 2013, a.k.a. way too long ago now!! The designer itch wouldn’t leave me though, it was just my fears & insecurities and now being a mom to two beautiful girls that kept me from leaping a little. But that leads me here. To today.

I messaged Soco, a scraping friend that I’ve basically known my whole time of digi, a designer I scrap with frequently as I’m a Polly at The Lilypad, & also a former CT member of mine. I knew we had a connection that my self-doubts could bounce my idea off of & I’d get a warm welcome. I asked to either have her talk me out of my crazy idea to dip my toes back in to designing, OR collaborate with me knowing that I’m not selling in a store currently & I think I’m rather rusty, lol!

She said yes!

And so One Of A Kind was started!

I was painting with my 2yr old & entered a peacock color space & that took me down the rabbit hole of symbolisms of peacocks. When I told all this to Soco she landed us to the title of our collaboration & the kit flowed from there! A 2yr old, some courage, and the sweetest digital designer I know, led to this gorgeous & PACKED collaboration!

Because it’s iNSD weekend, and sales are the name of the game, we bundled this up with journal cards & listed it OVER 50% off for this weekend only! The kit, the papers, the elements, & the cards can all be purchased separately of course for 40% off, but the best deal is the bundle! Everything you see for $6.00 this weekend! I’m dipping my toes into designing again & I’m so nervous & thrilled to see if you all love this as much as I do! Here’s the full collection!

https://the-lilypad.com/store/One-Of-A-Kind-Collection.html

Tonight I’ll share the layouts I created myself & later this weekend I’ll give you all a preview of what Soco’s team & the other Pollys created with our collection. I told Soco I forgot how much I truly love seeing what other people do with my designs. I was in tears when she shared the first CT pages with me!

Anyway! Here are the 4 new layouts I created as soon as we bundled up this kit since I was too excited NOT to scrap! 3 of them use new templates by Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs that she has bundled up for iNSD as well! So please check her out too!

Happy iNSD if you find my little place on the web!

Happy shopping & scrapping & inspiration grabbing!

Halloween Snaps v.11

Oh 2020!

Happy Halloween in this crazy crazy world!

I’m happy that we were able to still have Halloween this year even if there were precautions for the day. Weather was wonderful so I didn’t have to worry about families standing in the rain since I didn’t have the whole office open this time around. I hope those that stopped in will love their photos.

In case you might have missed previous year downloads, last year, (and links to previous years), can be found here: Halloween Snaps v.10

The link to the Halloween Snaps 2020 gallery is here:

You just need to click on the image(s) of your children, and if the normal right-clicking on the photo and choosing “download” & “Original” doesn’t work, then you should see a little download icon at the top of the photo, (like in the screen shot above). Click that icon & choose “Original” to download and save to your computer. The site is a little different on the image screen than before. You are also able to order any prints online if you’d like or stop in my studio anytime, (prices online are a few dollars more than in person to cover online costs, so if you want to order it’s best to email or stop in). Otherwise, this is simply my free gift to you to download and I hope you had a great Halloween night.

And as always! Here are some favorites from last night!

Here’s to a wonderful rest of 2020!

Halloween Snaps v.10

Happy Halloween 2019!

Hello to a now 10 year tradition!!!

I’m so glad I was still able to do these pictures this year for Liberty to keep the tradition alive. I love seeing the familiar faces that I do & also seeing some new! I know the weather was colder than in recent years, but there was still a nice turnout & I hope everyone had fun! Also thank you to everyone for their compliments on my new baby too. I appreciate the love & well wishes for her & I!

Halloween Snaps v.9

Happy Halloween 2018!!

This year was different than in the past because Trick-or-Treat night has been moved to this coming Saturday. Because of prior plans to be out of town I couldn’t move along with it, so instead of canceling my tradition altogether I just kept Halloween night for costume photos for the kids in Liberty!!!

So I’m so sorry that I’m not going to be in Saturday, but I’m still super thrilled that I could keep the tradition alive for some of the families last night!! Definitely a little calmer that normal Trick-or-Treating night, but now I have a TON of leftover candy! HAHA!

And In case you might have missed downloading your photos from last year, check my post Halloween Snaps v.8. (You can also navigate through that to find all the previous year posts as well.)
