TOP TEN BLOG HOP

Its hard to believe we are near the end of a year... and what a wonderful scrappy year it was for me! I was truly blessed to create and design for my most favorite design teams- Doodlebug Design, Bella Blvd, and Imaginisce.  I also was in awe that I was chosen to design for Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine... an amazing experience to work with such a wonderful, inspiring group of ladies. Lastly the challenge blog: Inspiration Elevator pushed me to create layouts with new techniques, different ideas that I would never even thing of attempting... it truly was a great experience!  Looking back on my creative resume, its hard to believe that I had just over 40 publications! I know, jaw dropping! Here are some of my most favorite layouts from the past year:









 One of my favourite projects too was my advent calendar by Doodlebug Design BUT I also still haven't shared my next favorite project. 

One thing I did miss this year, was not making as many cards... I REALLY missed making cards! I don't know if I just shyed away from them because with the design teams I was on, I was drawn to layouts and altered projects... BUT I promise you that will change in 2014 (stay tuned!.... hehehe!) So today I thought I would share with you my three most favorite cards of 2014, and funny enough, I made them this past week, and they are up on the BOYS RULE KITS yesterday as well!


So have you had a great scrappy year?  2014 is going to be AWESOME... I am rejoining ALL of my design teams (yes I was doing the happy dance for all of them)- Imaginisce, Bella Blvd, Doodlebug Design and YES... I even got asked back for Canadian Scrapbooker! EKKKK!!!! :) :) :)  Some tricks up my sleeve as I commit to more card making, and completing PROJECT LIFE... yes thats right, attempt #2 for Project Life, I can do it, right???

So, nothing like a prize to get this blog hop going right?? So I have for the lucky winner....  A fun filled package of scrappy goodness... yep a little bit of love from all my favorite companies, a way to say a BIG THANKS for reading my blog,..(SO apologize for the bad photo! but I will add more with the more followers I get!)

Your projects always knock my socks off! So thankful to call you a friend and have you as a source of amazing inspiration! Looking forward to seeing lots more from you in 2014. And probably my favorite of the lot is the Doodlebug Rainbow one :)

Lynn said...

Jodi it's so fun to see some of the projects you did from 2013!! Amazing work! I can't pick a fave!! I love them all.

Lisa P said...

Very cool. Love your rainbow layout. No tips for PL> I tried one year and failed! New Year's Resolution: be more organized.

KrissyClarkMcKee said...

Wow! These are all so awesome! Each one that I look at, I think, that's my favorite. Then I see the next one and think, no, THAT'S my favorite. And so on... Great job!

Denise Luscan said...

Love your designs! I am a new follower and look forward to the inspiration. Unfortunately I can't give you any tips for PL. I can't keep up with PL! On that note..my resolution is to procrastinate a bit less...we'll see.

Marcia Dehn-Nix said...

Jodi, your projects are always so inspiring! Love your Imaginisce bubble layout and the Doodlebug Halloween layout.

Wild Child was my favorite.

Sheila Burns said...

Hi, I am a new follower...as for resolutions, I never make any bc then I am not as sad when I don't keep them lol! As for project life, I don't do it, but I did a Dec. Daily for the first time this yr. My tip: Jot a quick sentence on your calendar about what was going on that day...then when you sit down to scrap, you will remember what was happening!

Meredith L said...

Following along. Thanks for the chance to win blog candy.

My favorite is wild wasabi!

My New Years resolution is to be healthy and happy.

I became a follower. Ok, Project Life tips from someone who hasn't finished a year in the last two years I've been doing it, KEEP IT SIMPLE! :) Put down your pics, journal, then come back and embellish if there's time.

Iris said...

Love your layouts - so neat and tidy and cute. I'm sure you will be great at Project Life.

Beatrice Lawson said...

I already follow your blog through Bloglovin... My fave is the gorgeous patriotic Canadian layout. Brilliant! I don't make New Year resolutions, but if I were tempted it would be to try for a DT this year. I can only wish you good luck with PL.... I would never attempt it, as I find it actually creates more pressure. Documenting every day, and saving it, yikes. The albums would need a house of their own, I think. But lots of scrappers love it, so it obviously works!

Kelly Jean said...

Love all of your projects and your scrapbook style! Definitely need to follow you now! So happy that this hop brought us together!

Rhonda Van Ginkel said...

I just loved all of your projects and always am inspired by your work! My favorite has to be the bubbles page! Loved it!!!

Congratulations on staying on with some amazing companies!

cghundley said...

Pam S said...

I am a new follower, your work it AWESOME, I don't do project life, but I will watch what you create!

ScrapaDiddle said...

I'm a new follower, and my resolution is to lose some weight and regarding project life, keep it simple and just take 15 min a day or a week whichever suits you best. Really love your layouts!!!!!

Dodie said...

That "tutti frutti cutie" is just too cutie!

My resolution is to spend less time at work and more time on "me" things: family, crafting, getting into shape.

Karenladd said...

I am already a follower of your blog and always love your fun layouts. My favorite of this batch is Tiny Bubbles! Cute title, adorable photos and wonderful design.

Karenladd said...

My New years resolution is to get more pages done...and continue to use up my stash!

Karenladd said...

I haven't even gotten around to doing a Project Life album, so no real tips except to remember to document the little things!

Mendi said...

These are so many of my favorites of yours from the past year, but then again I admit it would be so hard to narrow it down. I adore everything you make. ;)

SHartl said...

I am a new follower! Your layouts are adorable and I really wish I could get more layouts done instead of just cards!

SHartl said...

My New Years Resolution would have to be getting more cards made to send to Operation Write Home!

SHartl said...

No tips for Project Life because I haven't even gotten caught up on my regular scrapbooks much less started a Project Life one!

Nicole McNamara said...

I am a new follower! And looking at your amazing work, I can't believe I wasn't already!!!!! I love your use of colours! Such fun layouts!

Nicole McNamara said...

New Years Resolution: use my time more wisely! There is never enough of that stuff!

OlesyaK said...

Terrific projects! love to see a fellow Canadian on the blog hop)

gram cheryl said...

I am a new follower and sooo glad I found you! Love your work and especially the Halloween layout.

gram cheryl said...

My new years resolutions? scrap more, send only homemade cards and (like all the world) exercise more!

gram cheryl said...

Project life suggestion... don;t be afraid to keep it simple. A receipt, note from a friend - even an "ad" for that newly purchased goodie (or the one on your wish list) can be easily scrapped for a days entry.

I am a new follower, well I've been a fan for a while, but finally signed up:)

jj said...

Love all your projects, and have been loving them on the vendors web sites all this year!

jj said...

My New Year's Resolution is to challenge myself more creatively.

jj said...

Project Life is really what scrapbooking was originally many decades ago - little momentos that remind you of a story.
