Freebie on the Fifth: Free Journaling + Filler cards – Fall Edition


It’s the fifth and so today that means – FREEBIE ON THE FIFTH, time! Yay! Today’s theme is Fall since it’s right around the corner! I was unfortunately super swamped this month and wasn’t able to contribute any designs, but Rebecca and Crystal both created some SUPER cute ones as always! Head on over to Crystal’s blog HERE and Rebecca’s blog HERE (Rebecca’s should be up shortly) to download their designs!

We always have SO much fun creating these to share with you! I hope you love them!

This is the 7th month that we’ve been doing this and so if you’ve missed any of the cards in the past, you can go HERE to find mine and download them and the others!


If you are loving these free cards, we would love it if you would share on Pinterest and your other social media outlets! That would mean so much to us and help us spread the word!

Also, if you complete a project using some of our #FreebiesOnTheFifth cards we’d LOVE to see! Share them on any one of our Facebook pages (Kristina on FBCrystal on FBSimple as That on FB), comment on this blog post with a link to your project or share with us on instagram using hashtag #FreebiesOnTheFifth.

Right Now Challenge: Week 36



Happy Friday, friends!

Where did this week go?! Wow – it sent by fast for me! LOTS going on!

I only managed to write down one thing this week, although I know there were a few that I MEANT to write down, but unfortunately didn’t. Ugh. Here it is:

  • When we bought our new car some months back the dealership mailed us this tin of delicious chocolate chip cookies that we all loved, especially Jack. So when we drove by the dealership the other day, Jack said, “We need to go and  buy another car so that we get those delicious cookies again!” LOL! We definitely told him that we’d much rather just go and buy him some cookies. MUCH cheaper! Ha! ;) That kid, I tell ya! SO sweet!

I hope you all have a great Friday and weekend ahead! Make it a good one! XOXO!

Rainbow Pouch


Just wanted to share this super adorable rainbow pouch that I purchased from my friend, Tiffany last week. I actually bought Caylin and I both one. They were just too adorable NOT to. Ha!


They are just so cute and so well made! I’m always ooohing and ahhhhing over everything that Tiffany makes and I was so happy that she made Caylin and I one! If you just HAD to have one of these for yourself or a sweet girl in your life Tiffany can make you one as well for $10 and that includes shipping.

Such a great deal on a cute handmade pouch! Anyway, I just love buying handmade and supporting handmade and so I wanted to pass this along to all of you!

Here are some pictures of one of the pouches that I bought:





You can find Tiffany on Facebook HERE on Instagram HERE and her website is HERE.

Have a beautiful Thursday, everyone! XOXO!

Adding a bit of fun with decals!

I’ve been wanting to add a little more color and fun to my kids’ bathroom and so when I saw these really cute water drop decals, I knew they’d be perfect!

I went searching on Etsy to find a really great place to get some and stumbled up, Sunny Decals.


I just loved their color selection, price and most importantly the reviews I read!

These are the decals that I got:


I went with the #34 blue and it worked perfectly with the cute, colorful shower curtain that is already in there. shower-curtain

What I decided to do was to fill the entire wall that is opposite of the shower curtain with the blue water drops.


They looked so cute scattered about! I then added a framed print that I created to the wall as well. You can find that HERE.

A happy yellow rug in front of the sink and the bathroom was MUCH more bright and fun and the kids LOVE it!


This bathroom is pretty small and there is a window so the pictures aren’t the greatest, but I hope you can see just how easy it is to add some fun decals to a room for hardly any money at all and create a fun impact!

Here are some things that I love about Sunny Decals:

  • The price. After looking around at a lot of etsy shops selling decals – I found that their prices are really great!
  • The quality. The decals were shipped quickly and arrived packaged nicely with instructions as well. I love that they are FABRIC decals, not vinyl and they were so easy to take on and off as I placed them on the wall. Trust me, that’s a huge plus!
  • The people. Jade at Sunny Decals is just the sweetest. I love supporting sweet folks. :)
  • How easy they were to use. Like I said above – the decals came with instructions that were easy to read and follow and the decals went on easily and smoothly. Piece of cake!

So, I highly recommend Sunny Decals if you’re looking to add a bit of POP and FUN to a room in your home!

Have a great day, everyone!


Project Life® Tuesday


Happy Project Life® Tuesday!

I’ve been working away on my album trying to catch up a bit! I’m thankful to have a couple of pages to share with you all today! Yay!

Here they are!


Here’s a shot of both pages and the insert that I used this week. I’m using DESIGN A for my pages and the insert is an 8.5×11 page protector.


Here’s the left side. Kits I used included: Kiwi, Just Add Color, Seafoam and the Plus One mini kit! :)


Here’s a closeup of a photo and cards from the left side.


I used a photo template by Tracy Larsen (that you can get HERE) for this 4×6 slot.


When it comes to title cards – since I don’t do the standard weekly layouts (I just add chronologically) I never use the title cards for the week date stamps. Instead I love to add a small photo and journaling to them! :)


I created this layout a few weeks back using super cute Freckled Fawn goodies! I wanted to slip it in my Project Life® album and so that’s just what I did using a standard 8.5×11 page protector. Easy!


Here’s the right side. :)


Another Tracy Larsen photo template. Told you that I love them. :)


More closeups! right-closeup1

And another title card used for a photo!

Well, that’s it for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m working on finishing up Luke’s first year album and working on more pages of my Project Life® album so I’m hoping I’ll be able to share more soon!

I’m linking up with my friend, Jessica at The Mom Creative today, too! Check out more great pages there!


Have a great day, everyone! XOXO!
