Happy Project Life Tuesday!

Hope you all are having a great week so far! Here are my page shares for today! I’m chugging along in 2015 and just about caught up! How awesome is that?!

I used DESIGN A page protectors and cards from: Blush, Kiwi, Super Cute (mini kit) and Seafoam. I think that’s it. ;)

Here’s the left side.

The label sticker and wooden heart are from Freckled Fawn. :)

The round sticker on the photo I cut a bit off on and it’s an old Kelly Purkey sticker label from a couple of years ago. I can’t get enough of label stickers lately. PERFECT for Project Life!

Aren’t those hearts cute?! ;) Caylin made a bunch for the Valentine’s she was making. I just loved them all lined up like that and had to take a photo of them. She even gave me one. ;)

Kept it all super simple and clean like usual. Not many embellishments, but a good amount of photos and journaling. That’s what it’s all about, right? ;)

right-2

Used a photo template from my friend, Tracy. Love how I can get a bunch of photos on one 4×6.

Please excuse the super silly selfie that I took. Hahaha! What can I say? I like to jam with my ear buds in at my computer. I wanted my kids to see that silliness documented, too. Ya gotta do it every now and then. ;)

Hope you all have a great day! Make it a good one!

XOXO!

I’m obsessed with Minted.

There. I said it. I mean, have you been to minted lately? Oh my goodness, I cannot get enough of that site. I’m telling you, I spent about 2 hours there yesterday browsing the website and bookmarking things left and right after I realized that they have SO much more than just holiday cards and invitations there. I don’t know why I never realized this before, but now at minted you can order fabric, photography prints, art prints (even beautiful limited edition pieces) and lots of different types of stationery like notebooks, planners and address books. Sweeeeeet! I want to like purchase one of everything there. I’m totally serious.

Here are some of the things that I found and love:

Notebooks/Planners/Address Books

I just love the wide variety of illustrated and graphically beautiful covers that minted has to offer. There are A LOT of pages of different styles and designs and what I love is that you can customize them and personalize them to make them your own. And if you want, it can just be a journal or there are options that you can click to make the design a weekly or monthly planner or even an address book. I love planners, but I’m thinking that I need to order some more journal notebooks to add to my stash. I have a thing for notebooks. I’m always buying them and I love a cute, new notebook in hand – it really gets my creativity flowing and is inspiring to me. A blank notebook does wonders for me so I’m thinking that’s what I’ll have to get.  These designs are some of my favorites:

There are even some that you can add photos to or that would be great for kids. I’m thinking I need to get this one for Caylin. She’s like me – always drawing, writing, doodling –  yep, I think she needs this one for sure!

Every notebook comes with 40 pages and you can customize it to have either blank, lined or graph paper on the inside. You can even customize the inside a bit like these two notebooks below:

There are other options too, like a bookplate or even a photo that you can customize there. You can even leave it blank if you want. I’m telling you – I had NO idea these were available on minted. Where have I been? Geesh!

Limited Art Prints

Can we say beautiful?! They come in a variety of sizes and you can even purchase them framed. I love how you can see the preview of what the different types of frames would look like with the print, too.

Foil Art Prints

Of course this Tennessee gold foil print is calling my name. I LOVE the great state of Tennessee. ;)Screen Shot 2015-02-21 at 5.22.42 PM

I thought this one was beautiful, too! Perfect for Caylin’s room! Goodness, however will I choose?!

Children’s Art Prints

I’m thinking Luke would flip over this super cute puppy print – or as he calls them – “pup pups!” ;)

And this would be so cute in our homeschool room, too!

Some other products that I had no idea minted carried are:

Ribbon

So many beautiful ribbons! Man oh man! Who knew?!

Customizable wrapping paper

How cute would this be to customize for birthdays or even holidays like Grandparent’s Day or Mother’s Day/Father’s Day? And Christmas?! Super cute!

Party Decor

I love how they have so many different types of themes and then in each theme there’s a good amount of supplies and you can either order them separately or the whole package and save a bit of money! SO cute and how much time would that save?! Love!

Kid Personalized Stationery

I really think I need to get the kids some super cute “thank you” cards and stationery so that it’s even easier for them to write a thank you note or sweet message to a friend. These designs below are just adorable and there are SO many more.

They have so much more that I didn’t even mention in this post, so I definitely recommend that you head on over to minted and check it all out! I’d love to know if you shop at minted and if so, what’s your favorite thing to order there and if you’ve found something that you love! Also, I’d love to know which of the notebooks above is your favorite! I’m having a hard time deciding!!

Have a great week! XOXO!

Happy Project Life Tuesday!

Popping in to share some more pages today! This is my first spread for the new year! I did skip ahead a bit and got some pages done to share on the Simon Says Stamp blog so be sure you check those out, too! I posted about those pages below this post so be sure to check that out and you’ll get DOUBLE the page shares today! ;) both

The page protectors I used are DESIGN A and an 8.5×11 page protector for the insert art. I also used cards from the following editions: Kiwi, Blush, Jade and Plus One.

Here’s a shot of the left side. I included my Right Now card that recapped some things from that time that I wanted to remember. I kept it super simple.

Here are a few close ups. ;)

insert

This is a piece of artwork that Caylin created that I wanted to include. You know me – I love including bits and pieces like this that my kids make. These little treasures need a safe home. :)

Here’s the right side.

Here are a few close ups of this page as well. I used my usual Project Life date stamp, Project Life pen (05) and also the tiny attacher. I did use a sticker label or two as well. Just getting the memories down and the photos in there.

Super simple, but there you have it. I hope you are having a great week! I’ll be back with more soon!

Make it a great day! XOXO!

Sharing a layout

Happy  Wednesday!

Today I’m sharing more information and photos about a scrapbook layout that I created using the February OHDEERME embellishment kit from Freckled Fawn. This kit is my absolute favorite so far and trust me – you will NOT be disappointed with these kits!

Every now and then I make a scrapbook layout to insert into my Project Life album. It feels good to do a traditional scrapbook page every now and then, but honestly I don’t miss it and am glad to be memory keeping the Project Life way the past few years.

With that said though, every now and then I like to whip up a simple layout and these February goodies in the kit just called out to me to use on a layout so I did!

FF1

I wanted to create a bright, happy layout of the photo and memory of the gift that Caylin gave to me this past Christmas.

FF2

That little “love” flair button is ADORABLE.

FF4

I often times like to try to come up with new ways to use my Project Life cards since I have so many and a good amount comes in each kit. So for above, what I did is I took a card from the Kiwi Edition and I just sliced the top off and then used it to stamp the date on. It looks like a cute label, don’t ya think?

FF5

Love the scatter of stamped hearts and chipboard hearts!

FF6

The polka-dotted green circle is also a Project Life card from the Kiwi Edition that I just die cut a circle from and then placed half of it below the cardstock. :)

FF7

There you have it. A super simple layout using some Project Life cards and some super cute goodies from the February OHDEERME embellishment kit from Freckled Fawn.

XOXO!
