The Awesome Ladies Project is about making time for you to feel awesome.

Each month we pledge two hours to create something that makes you feel like an Awesome Lady. Whatever that may be. You might be a scrapbooker, an art journaler, a quilter, or a pastry chef — you are welcome here.

This is a place for all the awesome ladies to come together, share their projects, find inspiration, make friends, and more. The Awesome Ladies Project is an all inclusive group. Everyone is welcome here — you don’t have to be a woman to spend two hours feeling like an Awesome Lady.

rukristin Art Journaling

Get Messy is an art journaling challenge brought to life by two amazing women, Lauren and Caylee. As I’ve been needing a swift kick in the ass to get some more art journaling done — this challenge came at the perfect time. Here’s a little bit more about the challenge:

Get Messy Art Journal Challenge is an art journaling program here to inspire you, teach you new art techniques and help you build community around this art form. You can read about how Get Messy got it’s start and you can learn more about the program and join us. If you aren’t ready to commit with us just yet, join our newsletter to receive free prompts and participate in our monthly link ups!

Today I’m joining in on a blog hop with several of the other women in the Get Messy Art Journaling group. I love community, and as an introvert, online communities are pretty much the best thing since sliced bread.… Read More


Today’s post about scrapbooking using only a limited amount of supplies in your stash is from Awesome Ladies Creative Team member Theresa


I spend a lot of time on the road and a lot of time between homes, without the comfort and ease of my large stash to scrapbook with. It’s taken a few years, but I’ve finally got my “moving” stash down. And I like the minimalism so much, I’m moving towards a limited stash as my new scrapbooking normal.

I build my travel kit with a few guiding principles:

1. Everything but my paper cutter has to fit into one Iris large 12×12 case, and six small 6×4 case.
2. I need to be able to scrapbook, do project life, and make thank you cards with whatever I bring.
3. I can supplement on the road, but I need enough of the basics to get me though about three months.… Read More
