snapshots in time :: our first two months

I originally featured this mini-album at Creativity Prompt, honored at the opportunity to guest post there. Avital is creatively talented in so many ways, I think you'll enjoy your visit with her.

Now that we are ready to begin our third month of the year, I thought I would share with you how I'm using our mini. You've seen the cover before, but I wanted to show you again how I used The Twinery's baker's twine to "spell" out the year 2011 in a fun and colorful way.

I used the month-in-review journaling cards, which are available in the download section in my sidebar, to capture little snippets about our lives. There are more snippets that could have been captured, but I chose to capture just those events that involved our 5 family members.

And on the right hand side, a photo that best captures the month in my eyes. I already scrapped this photo of Victoria here, but every time I see this photo, I am reminded of her enthusiasm for being outside in the snow, in her jammies, with a too-small beach hat and leopard rain boots on. Do you see now why her nickname Spunky fits her so well? You can't really see it so well, but I was lucky to snap this photo of her in mid-air jubilee!

And now for February's highlights:

and a sweet photo of my three treasures:

Can you believe that tomorrow will already be March 1st?


I created a custom mini-album for an Etsy customer using these very same downloads, but with custom colors to match her personality and lifestyle. Plus, she has 2 boys and NO girls...there goes the pink.

Read all about the mini and her process with Andrea, aka projectenvygirl! And check out how adorable her family is! I encourage you to check it out, as I'm sharing an Etsy coupon code and Andrea's giving away one of these mini's...hurry, you won't want to miss it.

Which gave me this idea!


Okay scriends {Zach's made-up word for scrapbooking friends}, here's the deal.

Spring Break here in Walland is the week of March 14th. I'd like to take the week off from blogging and do some fun stuff with the kids during that time. Sooooooo...I thought that if any of you had taken an idea I had presented here on the blog and re-created it in some form or fashion, or if you have purchased an item from the Etsy shop and have it displayed in your home and would like to share how you might have framed a print or used a mini-album kit, I'd like to feature you here on I Love It All. 


  1. and what youre doing with your mini - especially the picture of all three of them - its adorable :))

  2. Love your printables! I plan on using these to have places to write my gratitudes in my book inspired by you! Thanks!

    I linked you in my blog.
