inspiration from our creative team – december 2015
We’re days away from the start of a fresh year and the end of another, which also means the “changing of the guard” with our Creative Team – not only with our team members, but with the management of our 2016 team, as well. Our Creative Team this year has been remarkable in the way they have shared their stories and creative inspiration with us. Collectively they have such a wide variety of styles that appeals to all kinds of documenters. I imagine that many of you have seen a project or page that has been shared and thought “I never thought to do that!” Those “light bulb” moments are one of the reasons we have a creative team – to inspire you in the way you photograph and document your memories.
I’ve been the “mama” to the Creative Team since the very beginning of my time working with Becky 4 years ago, so it’s hard to imagine not being in that role next year as my job continues to evolve. While I’ll be handing over the reigns of managing the creative team to Molly moving forward (and Laurie will continue to manage the digital and app team), I’m excited to see what the new team will bring to the table and am anxiously awaiting my chance to “meet” them soon! I’ve developed some life-long friendships with the ladies I have worked with as I’ve seen them welcome new babies, say goodbye to loved ones, move across the country, buy new homes, and document it all. I’m not a terribly sentimental person, but I have held on tight to “my girls” for years now and really do consider them family. I’ve been blessed to know them and to work with them. I’ve been delighted to meet several of them in person. I continue to get cards and emails from many of them years after their time on the team ended. I am immensely grateful to have my life filled by so many amazing women who are examples of exactly what it means to “cultivate a good life and record it.” To any and all of my Creative Team alumni, thank you for all of your work, but mostly I thank you for your friendship, love, and support through the years. *hugs*
The pages + projects you’ll see in this post are from the girls on our team using our physical products. You can also find digital inspiration for December from those on our team using our digital products and the Project Life® App to document. No matter which products you choose, the idea behind Project Life is the same – to help you simplify the process of getting your stories into albums! Remember that the 3 core Project Life components and nothing else are really all you need to get started. Album + Project Life Core Kit + Big Pack of Photo Pocket Pages. That’s it. All products used in the pages below include direct links under the images for your convenience so you can see more.
And with that, enjoy your last dose of inspiration from our 2015 Creative Team!
