July Challenge | Document With a Series

Document a Series #NerdNestChallenge

Welcome to the monthly Nerd Nest Memory Keeping Challenge!

This month, the challenge is to document with a series.

Sometimes the best advice is to narrow down to one thing: your favorite photo to represent an event, a single little story or anecdote, or one layout when you could easily make a hundred with the photos you’ve taken. Narrowing down keeps things simple and is certainly less overwhelming, but sometimes a story needs just a bit more.

I’m challenging you to try to create a series to tell your story. For a photo-centric take on this challenge, you can use several photos that, together, show movement. You can also use a series of photos that explain a step by step process. For a word-centric approach, list the steps in a process or describe a series of events. You can even take this challenge a step further and create multiple layouts that serve as a “series” in a longer story!

Document a Series #NerdNestChallenge

For my take on the challenge, I used a series of photos to show Kristin and I at the Shore. Jake took a ton of photos because it’s a good rule of thumb when people are moving around: if you take twenty, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll get at least one keeper. While there is one photo that I love the most out of this series, on its own it didn’t really show the joy we felt standing at the edge of the ocean and getting hit with the cold waves.

I made my favorite photo stand out by making it larger than the others and popping it up with foam dots, but it takes all of the photos in this series to really tell the story.

I can’t wait to see how you create your own series in your memory keeping!

P.S. Watch out for my second take on this challenge (a journaling centric one) next week in a Confessions of a Class Junkie post.

Bonus Tips:

  • Cut a small slit in your paper to attach a decorative clip.
  • Use wet scrapbooking glue to attach small resin shapes and other translucent or thin embellishments.
  • Print photos at standard sizes and then trim them down to fit your page. For this page, I printed the large photo at 4×6 and the small photos at 2×3 (four to a 4×6 sheet) and then trimmed a bit off of each photo because, together, they were two inches too wide for the page.
  • Thin acrylic stamps can often bend out of shape when you place them on a stamping block and can be difficult to maneuver. I use the packaging as a guide for the placement of the stamp by laying the clear block over the storage sheet, which has the shape of the stamp printed onto it.

Supplies: Paper: White Cardstock; Embellishments: Freckled Fawn Oh Deer Me kit (July), Studio Calico washi tape from Bluegrass Farm; Ink: Prima Turquoise Stone.

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Instead of sticking with my usual for 2014 Sunday to Monday weekly format for the first part of May, I decided to break it up differently to accommodate Jake’s and my Mid-Atlantic vacation.

Click on the photos for a bigger view.

Today I’m sharing a spread with all of the May days before the vacation and the weekly spread immediately following the trip, so I can share the vacation spreads together in one post. (Spoiler: I went with a spread for each leg of the trip).

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

May 1-7

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Going on here: How I spent National Scrapbooking Day, Jake’s work trip, video chatting with Jake, the kids’ soccer games, visiting my great-grandpa, Jonas learning to dress himself, and guesting on the That’s What She Read podcast.

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Tip: Project Life is a LONG TERM project, so switching things up for yourself to keep things interesting is a good idea. If you find yourself with a placement pattern (like including title cards in the upper left and text-heavy cards at the bottom of a spread, like I usually to), simply changing up your usual placements can help (like moving the date card to a 3×4 space and throwing the journaling up top).

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Going on here: Jake’s lovely photos from Philadelphia before he started his business trip in Easton, PA and hanging out with our friends Megan and Ryan who came in from Lincoln, NE to spend the night with us (on Star Wars Day!).

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Tip: Use a sticker on the inside of a 4×6 pocket to keep two 3×4 cards or photos in place. (I’m putting a matching sticker on the other side.)

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

May 12-17

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Going on here: Our last day in Jersey and saying goodbye to Kristin and Jeff, feelings about being home, playing video games and my #Thursday3 for the week (usually I just work my 3 weekly facts into my spread, but I wanted to separate them out this week), and Jake and Paul fixing dinner.

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Tip: Use a clip to keep a business card in place so you’ll be able to see the other side! Use a label sticker (or, in this case, a label from washi tape) to make a note about the card.

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

I love that Jake walked across the street to get a photo of the diner with Kristin, Jeff, and I in it. Mixing together close-up and far photos adds visual interest and tells a bigger story: you get in the setting and the people.

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

I was really tickled to fill out a Currently card in the home of Currently.

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Tip: Yet another trick to filling up pockets with not-quite right sized things: adhering a 3×4 photo and a 3×4 journaling card together to fill a 4×6 pocket!

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Going on here: Jake and Jonas making noodles and Jonas falling asleep on me as I was reading bedtime stories to him.

Tip: Filling up 4×4 pockets can be tricky if you’re working with kits that don’t have 4×4 and you don’t want 4×4 photos in the pockets. For these pockets, I cut down one 4×6 card and used papers from 6×6 pads.

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Most of the products in these spreads are from Studio Calico Project Life kits with a few bits from other kits thrown in (like embellishments from Freckled Fawn‘s Oh Deer Me club).

This spread uses has a lot of cards from The Sweet Life Journaling Cards pack.

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Going on here: Jonas’s last soccer game of the season, Eliza’s game this week, and E’s 3D shape drawings.

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Tip: Another way I fill 4×4 cards is by adhering 3×4 photos and cards together.

Project Life 2014 | May Part 1 | The Nerd Nest

Going on here: Celebrating at my sister’s baby shower, the epic treehouse my grandpa is building for all of the kids in our family, and our cousin’s college graduation party.


I love these two spreads and can’t wait to share more with you next week!

Let me know if you have any questions about this spread or about pocket scrapping in general!

Spark | Halfway There

14511148861_b3739e5397_o

Right now I’m working through some stuff and part of this (recurring) quarter life crisis was questioning the direction I’m heading as a blogger. Ironically, when I signed up for Spark, an e-mail based blogging ecourse Kam of Campfire Chic designed to “rekindle your love of blogging” (so clever), I didn’t know that I was going to be going through another round of questioning and self-doubt. I just signed up because I figured it would help me fall for my blog more. However, it turned out that I REALLY needed it, because on day 3 of the course I was triggered by something that just make me want to delete the whole dang blog. I don’t want to be dramatic or anything, but Spark saved the day.

This isn’t to say that you actually need to be in a blogging funk for Spark to be useful. There are 30 days of action-based e-mails (with extra resources) that, in my opinion, will help you to become more productive in your work, find more joy in your online life, and improve your blog. Because of the way it’s set up–asking you to take 30 small actions that really add up over the course of the workshop–it can help you to clean up your blog and social media and establish habits that encourage more efficient work.

I started the course 30 days ago, so I just received my last e-mail for the course today. But I’m a slow-and-steady-goes-the-race person, so I decided to give myself two days instead of one for each action item. That means that I’ve read the whole course, but have only put into action half of the assignments so far. Most of the action items can be done in 10 minutes, but some of them sparked me to take on bigger projects like cleaning up my archives (which is a BIG undertaking and is still ongoing) and reorganizing my workspace to make it more efficient for my crafting flow.

It’s hard for me to describe how exactly Spark has helped me, because I don’t want to give too much away. I will say that it has helped me to get the distance that I needed from my online life. It’s helped me delete some of the negativity that was weighing me down. It has helped me to make hard-for-me decisions that will help me do what I actually want to do (going down to 3 posts a week for the summer is totally what I need right now). And–big deal–it’s pushed me to work to finish the new Nerd Nest blog design that I thought Jake and I would be done with LAST FALL. (So close!)

The first half of Spark was just what I needed to push me in the right direction and I’m so excited to see where the second half takes me.

I bought and took this course because boy did I need it and am sharing my progress with you because you might need it too.

Kansas City Maker Faire 2014

Kansas City Maker Faire 2014 | The Nerd Nest

We spent last Saturday at Kansas City Maker Faire, which is one of our favorite things to do as a family every year. The Maker Faire has amazing inventions, interesting technology, fun activities, and plenty of nerd culture references: enough to keep any sort of nerd overjoyed and engaged. In addition to giving us grown up nerds a chance to connect with other Makers and get a feel for what’s happening in the world of technology, it’s also an awesome opportunity to spare kids’ interest in STEM fields by showing how FUN those areas can be.

Here’s a peek into what we saw and did at this year’s Faire:

A bit of what you’re seeing up there:

micro controllers / 3D printers (LOTS of 3D printers) / new apps / new search engines / robots (we had fun watching high school robotics teams compete!) / a giant inflated playground just for fun / making slime / life sized TARDIS and a Dalek (boy, did Jonas love up on that Dalek) / Lego pits and a Rube Goldberg Lego machine / fantastic artists / LARPing / viewing tiny ecosystems through giant microscopes / tons of great tools for building and making

We didn’t even touch the tip of the iceberg with the camera (we skipped photographing a lot of the things we’ve taken pictures of other years). We spent five or six hours submerged in awesomeness and we’re still kind of floating from it.

There are over 100 Maker Faires all over the world, so see if there’s one near you!

Water Marbling | 16/52 Projects

Water Marbling | The Nerd Nest #megandoes52projects

Water Marbling | The Nerd Nest #megandoes52projects

After our fun with shaving cream marbling a few weeks ago, I wanted to try to do another fun effect on a terra cotta planter. Though I’m sure I could figure out how to make the shaving cream method work in 3D, I decided to try a different technique: I immediately thought of Elise’s Water Marbling using fingernail polish and decided to give it a go. After all, part of the point of my 52 Projects this year is to actually try some of that cool stuff I see floating around the Internet.

Water Marbling | The Nerd Nest #megandoes52projects

Water Marbling | The Nerd Nest #megandoes52projects

I practiced using cards before moving to my planter. Though Elise’s instructions were great, I never did get the water to just the right temperature to really get a good swirl going. So I wasn’t successful at creating an actual marbling effect, but I liked the abstract shapes anyway. I’m happy with how the cards look with my very limited color pallet (I had to steal some polish from Eliza so I could have three colors that are not grey).

Water Marbling | The Nerd Nest #megandoes52projects

Some cards turned out way better than others (I was not a fan of my teal / grey cards, which I thought would be my main color combo used). That’s fine: I can still make the ones I don’t love work by using them as backgrounds. Scrapbooking supplies can make any art mess awesome.

Water Marbling | The Nerd Nest #megandoes52projects

Even though the cards were meant to be just for practice, I ended up liking them way more than the planter. I think that for the effect to really show, it needed to be white. (I could always paint the pot white and try again later.)

It was kind of a mess when it came out, but cleaning it up with a cotton swab and polish remover helped.

Water Marbling | The Nerd Nest #megandoes52projects

The planter is in my bathroom so it doesn’t have to be high art. I’ll try it for awhile to see if it grows on me. If it doesn’t, removing the polish and trying something else will be a breeze!

I’ll be trying this again when I have more patience for messing with water temperatures (probably with Eliza). I’m sure that I’ll get better with practice!

Have you tried an online tutorial lately?


This year it’s my goal to complete 52 projects; an average of 1 a week. Projects can be art, crafts, home improvement, tech, gardening, or whatever else my brain ventures into. The point is to MAKE. This is project 16 of 52! Check out the other projects: 1 : Script Art / 2: Striped Scarf / 3: Pillow Covers / 4: Eliza’s Doctor Who Valentines / 5: DIY Periodic Table Mirrors / 6: Band Pin Display / 7: French Monuments with Eliza’s Class / 8: Crystal Nail String Art / 9: Adventures in Dye / 10: Spring Poems / 11: Getting the Garden Going / 12: Le Petite Prince Painting / 13: DIY Cleaning Supplies / 14: Picking Up the Violin Again / 15: Shaving Cream Marbling.

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

I take a silly amount of classes (mostly on memory keeping and blogging) online, and I’m here again to share my takes with you!

For this round, I’m sharing takes from Ali Edward’s Hello Story and Aly Dosdall’s class Stashbusters Anonymous, which is now available as a self-paced class so you can prepare yourself for the upcoming sequel to the class: Super Stashbusters.

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

I’m working on my 2011 Project Life album, which I add to off and on with this method for documenting the past with Project Life. At this point in the album, I have a lot of layouts I made in 2011 to work with, so I’m integrating layouts into half of the weekly spreads and/or making extra layouts to go in between weekly spreads so it all matches up. Because Stashbusters Anonymous has product and design challenges rather than thematic challenges, I decided to give myself an extra challenge and work the assignments into the pages I was already planning on creating.

For this spread, which covers March 20-26, that meant using a pinwheel scrap paper challenge in one of my pockets. I had a lot of fun making that and choosing cards that mimicked the style and colors of the pinwheel to tie the spread together!

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

Tip: You don’t have to just write in straight horizontal lines! Look for lines on card designs to guide your sentences in interesting ways.

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

Tip: If you’re collaging papers together, using an embellishment over the point where your papers meet covers up your mistakes if things aren’t quite exact.

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

(Side note: trying really hard not to get baby fever working with all of these cute baby Jonas pictures.)

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

For my March 27-April 3, I needed to create half of the spread as a traditional layout to match up the spread with other pages in the album. I used the Scrapbusters challenge on using cards and tags for the layout. Layering is a great way to use up lots of cards–I know that I’d be buried in pocket scrapbooking cards if I only ever used them in pockets.

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

Tip: Clear drying wet scrapbooking glue is the best way to adhere tiny translucent embellishments like these music notes! Bonus–you get some wiggle room after you place the embellishment down to scoot it to just the right place while the glue is still wet.

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

Tip: When you have a lot of layers (especially colorful ones), it can be hard to get the important stuff to stand out. For photos, I often use either large prints or mat the photo in white. Giving a focal point a lift with foam pop dots as I did with the “high five” card is another great way to help an element stand out!

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

I busted through more of my scrap stash to make a background with different patterned paper strips. I re-organized my scraps by size (and separated out the pattern papers that can be used for journaling), which makes creating pages like this go much quicker!

*These photos were taken by our friend Quin.

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

This page is also another take on the current #NerdNestChallenge to Mix the Old and New. I stash busted with old paper but used new embellishments from the May Oh Deer Me kit too!

Today would normally be a new challenge, but I’ve decided to drop the challenges from bi-weekly to monthly to give you all more time to work on them. So that means the next new challenge will by July 7!

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

For embellishments stashbusting, I had a serious need to use up some brads. I have a bunch of them, but have a hard time using them, mostly because they are organized in a way that makes it hard for me to see if there’s one that will match what I’m working on (I need to fix that). For a Stashbusters embellishment challenge, I used a strip of brads that fit my color scheme all of the way down the page!

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

Tip: Brads can be a little tricky to work with. I drew a line with a ruler down my page to make sure I was sticking all of the brads in at the right place! I also use a strip of washi tape to cover the backs of the brads on the back of the page so that they don’t catch when I’m slipping them into a page protector.

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

For Week 10 of Hello Story, I decided to stick with what I was doing for Stashbusters and make another spread for my 2011 Project Life. I decided to just create a Design H insert to go between and old and new layout so I could work the everyday stuff into the album.

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

I kept it simple with the Olive Core Kit.

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

It was easy to write about the 5Ws when 4 of them were already on a card for me!

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

I finished the spread with a super simple page about going to get ice creams with baby Jonas. With colors so bold and so much going on in the rest of the spread, I didn’t even feel like this page needed embellishments.

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

For Week 11 of Hello Story, I loved one of Ali’s takes, so I went with the same theme and a slightly adapted scraplift of her design. I made a current page about the similarities and differences between Eliza and Jonas. (Spoiler: both of them are super nerdy, Eliza likes order and Jonas thrives in chaos.)

Confessions of a Class Junkie Vol. 9 | The Nerd Nest

In addition to these memory keeping courses, I’m working through two ecourses on blogging: Kam’s Spark, which is an e-mail based course packed with action items to rekindle your passion for blogging, and Amy’s BUILD, which is the most in-depth ecourse on creating an online platform ever. I have a lot to say about these, more than can be squished in among scrapbook pages, so look for a post about each of them in the coming weeks. But if things start working funky around here, you’ll know why.

I’d love to know what classes you’re taking or some of your past favorites!


Affiliate links used when possible. Using these links to buy anything, even items other than the linked items, helps to support the Nerd Nest.


Here’s the deal: because I have friends who teach things and because I teach at Big Picture Classes, I get to take classes for free sometimes. So I end up taking more classes at once than I would if I were paying for them. I’d want to make sure I had time to do ALL of the projects in a given class vs. dipping in here and there if I were working within my crafting budget, so I’d probably limit myself to much less at a time. But as it is, I don’t need to do that, so keep that in mind. I don’t want anyone to feel like they need to be taking a stressful amount of classes. Choose classes based on what you think will be the most inspiring or the best fit for you (and your budget).

Day in the Life // June

JuneDITL_11

Last year I played along with Ali Edward’s Day in the Life monthly and it was one of my favorite projects ever. This year, I’m repeating the project. On the 15th of each month, I’m going to document my everyday life. I like having a set day because I won’t worry about finding a “representative” or “normal” day. Wherever the 15th falls, that’s what I’ll document.

Here’s Sunday, June 15th, which just happened to be Father’s Day. I also just happened to only capture photos with my phone this round.

JuneDITL_1

I woke up with early bird Jonas (who slept in some) and let Eliza and Jake sleep for a few extra hours. I started with coffee, Jonas had a small breakfast, and we worked on cleaning the first floor up a bit. (I really try to not leave dishes overnight, but it always seems to happen.) I woke Jake and Eliza up at 10:00 so they’d have an hour to lounge about and get ready before our family got here.

JuneDITL_2

JuneDITL_3

I made brunch (biscuits and chicken apple gravy with scrambled eggs and cherries), and my dad, step-mom, and great-grandpa came over to celebrate with us. We did not successfully wrangle clothes onto Jonas before they got here, but everyone in our family is used to that by now.

My mom had brunch with us too, and my sister and her boyfriend came to hang out before my dad et al. left. We all sat around talking, mostly, and showing each other technology things, and getting climbed on by Jonas (who eventually dressed himself).

JuneDITL_4

JuneDITL_5

JuneDITL_6

After that we had a bit of time before needing to leave for our next Father’s Day celebration, so everyone got in some hobby time. Jake and my sister’s boyfriend played video games, Eliza worked on this month’s Kiwi Crate, Jonas played in his room building Legos, and I finished up a 2011 Project Life spread and made another page for the current #NerdNestChallenge.

JuneDITL_7

Then it was time to head out to my mom’s side of the family. We left on time, which is pretty much a miracle (we’re, on average, 15 minutes late to everything). On the way there, we listened to Incongruent by Hank Green and the Perfect Strangers. Then I started to read The Giver to Eliza and Jake (Jonas fell asleep).

JuneDITL_8

We celebrated Poppy (my grandpa) and my sister’s birthday, which is right after Father’s Day. Jonas ran around outside with his cousin Nathan (same age), we all hung out, we ate tacos, and we sang to Taylor horribly off key before digging into soggy granny cake.

JuneDITL_9

JuneDITL_10

Then we went to Jake’s dad’s. We got there before Jake’s dad and stop-mom, so we hung out with his aunt (who lives right behind his parents) until they got there. Then there was a lot of playing and sliding. Eliza and Jake’s dad had fun finding stories in the shaving cream art Eliza made. Jake’s dad was very creative and picked the one with a bunny looking at the moon to keep.

Jonas decided to spend the night there. We caught up with Jake’s little brother just as we were leaving.

JuneDITL_11

We read The Giver more on the way back home, and Eliza was really into it so we finished our chapter and snacked before sending her off to bed.

JuneDITL_12

Jake and I relaxed a bit–he coded and I took a bath and read–until our friend Paul was done with playing basketball. We have a long standing Sunday Game of Thrones date. But because the finale was so long, it was too late to start. Jake and I were going to bed, but then we had to mediate other people’s arguing, which made me too upset to sleep, so we hung out and talked with Paul more and ended up staying up later than we would have if we’d just have watched the darn finale. Grown up slumber parties are the best. Then bedtime.

That’s a day in the life at the Nerd Nest! Our holidays are nuts with so many family branches close by. Thankful for that, but also tired.

The Summer List

IMG_1509

It’s been rainy sweater weather around here, so it hasn’t exactly felt summery yet. But it’s supposed to get up to the 90′s today, which means I feel like the seasonal page has turned. I thought I’d list the things my family is excited to do this summer.

This summer, we’re going to:

What’s on your summer list (or winter list if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere)

P.S. I’m going down to three posts a week for the summer. See you on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays!
