Www.scrappyjedi.com I think if you want to check it out.
Congrats to all the new GG, 2013 is looking great at 2Ps!

I've never followed any blogs consistantly, until I stumbled across hers (while searching star wars stuff to make an album for a Make A Wish kid!) I don't know WHERE she finds the hours in the day to do what she does. AMAZING!

I am *so* glad that she is scrapping for 2Peas this year! I tweeted her this morning because I had to let her know. I absolutely love her work. I find inspiration in her pages, her Project Life "philosophy", the photos she takes and the ways that she chooses to tell her stories. I can't wait to see more of her work, especially her videos! I have loved the few she has done so far.

|Posted: 1/1/2013 9:54:39 PM|Oh, thank you Ruth and everyone! You guys are seriously the best.
I'm super excited to join the team this year, and YES! I definitely plan to work quite a bit from older supplies that I have here in my stash that are still stocked by 2Peas. I do need to use items that are in the store, but my plan is to do exactly what I did with my Garden layout this month during the entire year- start with an "older" (older being relative- ha!) collection and then pull in semi-old and maybe a couple of new items in to show how old + new can work well together. For example, in my January layout that posted today I used the semi-old Sketchbook line along with the fairly new Simple Stories Snap and Elle's Studio Sweet Life collections.
As the year goes on and some of those older lines are phased out of the store I will need to start pulling in more newer items, but I have a plan for that, as well, that will still use stash by bringing in small elements of new collections (a tag, a sheet of label stickers, chipboard, or a sheet or two of new paper, for example) along with older releases, again to show what works well together. I am very excited by the possibilities for some great product combinations from this!
Also, if you guys have any questions/topics you'd like to see covered in my Project Life videos, please let me know! I plan to go more to the technical side- organizing + philosophy, photo organization + printing, etc.- for the first couple, but there will be some creative topics as well. If there's anything in particular you'd like to see, please let me know!
Thanks so much for the warm welcome, everyone!

Hi Melissa, please could you do a tutorial on your smaller photo printing process? I like to mostly print bulk 4x6s like you but am still struggling to make the whole thing fast and less tedious. Would love your help!
