tell me


Over the weekend I had a chance to actually do some trad memory pages.
I mean the 12x12 kind.
Just don't do those as often as I use too...
but it is still a format I thoroughly enjoy.

It was a boys weekend.
This is the first in a couple of my guy layouts.
I was totally inspired to be all boy and rock the more masculine feel.
What is sort of funny about that is the inspo came from Wilna Furstenberg's Art Class...
and if you know her work, she is all sweet and feminine and soft.
Everything I am not.
But I digress...

If you follow me on Instagram then you saw a peek of this layout...
it was dedicated to this man...
the one who makes my life possible.
The one, who, when I attempt to mess all things up...
is my center and brings me back in.

The theme came from Edwin McCain's I'll Be.
The song's lyrics really resonate with me about us when I hear it.

The text was created in Silhouette.
Pattern paper from the No Limits paper paper backed up the lyrics.
An artsy touch was added with Color Shine sprayed over stencils.
It added a masculine touch that was perfect for the feel I was going for.

Layers gave the whole piece lots of texture.
Stitching around the edges as well as distressing the paper are touches that I love to give any page, but added to a real manly feel for this project.
The lyrics to the song were typed and printed on the shipping tag that is tucked into a glassing bag and hidden a bit behind the layers.

This is one of those layouts I really don't want to put away but rather keep out.
So, who in your life needs to be celebrated?
If you are married, I challenge you to make your husband your subject.
My marriage is anything but perfect. It is a lot of hard work. But the work pays off in the now as well as in our legacy to come.
So I will remain true to the hard work.
And celebrate along the way.


  1. "Tell me" how you rock everything you touch?!?! This is so amazing, Jamie! I love the colors and the textures. You sure can do amazing things with a 12x12 piece of paper :) I'm inspired....thank you for sharing <3 xoxo

  2. I so love this!!! it's so beautiful as well as masculine. I have all boys in my house and can not wait to get my hands on the No Limits Pad!!! TFS

  3. It is so fantastic to see a 12x12 from you! I first noticed the tag in the glassine bag! Love it! Then the amazing title work! It does belong on the wall rather than between pages in an album :)
