Disneyland Mini Album



My very favorite thing to make is a mini album. I looooove them!! And my favorite way to make one is to print out all the photos and have a marathon scrapping session and get it all done in day. I guess I like my scrapbooking how I like my television watching. ;)

This is an album I've been meaning to make for a very long time, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. It's been three years since Cecily's first trip to Disneyland, but I'm glad I waited because I was able to use Crate Paper's Wonder collection and it was perfect for this project!

I saved our tickets from that day and slipped them into this little glassine baggie.

This is a pocket that holds three photos that are virtually the same, but I loved them all and couldn't decide. Whenever I can't decide, I go with a pocket, bag, or envelope... then I don't have to. :)

I love this photo of me and Silly so it needed to be BIG.

Some of my favorite photos EVER. The look on Cecily's face meeting Snow White for the first time was absolutely priceless. Our entire day was magical and made me so happy that we didn't wait until she was older to take her to Disneyland.

I love including memorabilia in my albums. It's so fun to look back on later. Her little double chin in this silhouette KILLS me.

Another little glassine baggie. This one is holding her first visit button and a ticket to the World of Color show we watched that evening.

This paper bag holds all the extra photos I couldn't bear to leave out. This little bag was actually holding some stickers in an online order I made, and it had the shop's logo stickered to the front. I loved the bag so much that I peeled off the sticker and saved it, but the sticker tore the bag a little bit so I just covered it up! I can't stand throwing cute things away even when they're damaged or tiny scraps, but I almost always find a use for them at some point.

This day was precious to me so I'm glad I could make an album I love to hold these wonderful memories. I feel like I was able to do them justice. And I love knowing that Cecily will be able to look back on a day she can't remember and know how special it was. This is when I love scrapbooking the most. :)

Thanks for looking!

I Treasure You



Hello! We're enjoying some nice rainy weather today so I thought I'd pop over here and give my blog some attention.

I've got Valentine's Day on my mind right now... one of my favorite times of the year because I love pink and hearts and flowers and chocolate. And of course, love. Gotta love love! This card isn't strictly Valentine-y since it only sort of features the aforementioned Valentine's accoutrement, but it will be perfect to let someone know how much they mean to me. :)

Untitled

This card features the Maggie Holmes Open Book collection, which is one of my all-time Crate Paper favorites. I covered my cardstock in lace because I love the texture so much, and I embossed polka dots on some white cardstock to make the little pocket. The sentiment slips in and out of the pocket for a fun little interactive element.

Christmas Gift Bags



My mom is a teacher and wanted to give her colleagues some pretty little presents before winter break so she enlisted me to help. I had so much fun putting them together for her! Sometimes it's more fun to make projects for other people than it is to work on my own. Somehow it feels like less pressure... which doesn't even make sense, but the point is, this was fun! As I get older, I've decided that getting little presents is almost more fun than getting big ones. I think it's the surprise element, even if it's only a little bag of candy. It's fun to open! And if it's wrapped up all pretty? That's the best!

I bought some of my favorite candies and adorable Minnie Mouse LipSmackers and made a set of hair ties for each bag. I found some darling polka dot kraft bags at the dollar spot at Target. I wish they had had more! I probably would have bought them all!

Even though I have a big table, it has been so full of projects lately that I hardly have any room to work. Haha! I made quite a mess working on these bags... but I really love having supplies within reach, even if things get a little cluttered.

Christmas gift bags

I dipped into my ribbon and twine stash and put together four unique packages.

From there, I just repeated those four designs to complete all ten presents.

To finish it off, I attached an embossed and stamped gift tag to the back of each gift, and there you have it! Brown paper packages tied up with string and all set to brighten some hardworking teachers' days. Thanks for taking a look at my project!

Eat Cake!



Here's a bright and cheerful birthday card I made using Dear Lizzy's Fine and Dandy collection... well, really it could be a card for anything because it's always a good time to eat cake.

Untitled

I love those plastic glitter bows so much. I used one of my favorite floral stamps to make the background then layered some patterned paper, light pink vellum, and a die cut. A little bit of stitching adds some great texture.

And we can't forget the tiny bow banners! I used a tiny bow punch and glued the bows to pieces of thread before adhering them to the card.

Hopefully, this card will inspire someone special to enjoy a piece of cake on their special day. :)

Thanks for looking at my project!

Welcome Home



I haven't been feeling like making much lately because it's been so hot, but I recently ordered Maggie Holmes's flower dies and wanted to try them out. This die set is SO cool.

I need to "borrow" a prettier door and retake these photos, but hey, this is my front door... it's what I had on hand. ;)

To make this, I used an old wood wreath from Paper Source and wrapped it with washi tape. I adhered the cut flowers with some buttons and dots and added a message with my favorite Thickers everrrrr (if you have any of these and don't want them, please send them to me. Send them ALLLL to me). I attached a ribbon to the top, and voila! A new wreath for our front door! Hopefully, it survives!

Update from the end of December: this wreath is still going strong! Nothing has fallen off, and it still looks new!

Thanks for taking a peek!
