December Daily ~ Day #4 through #7

Hello & Happy Friday!   Ready for more pages from my December Daily?  Some of them are very Christmas related & some aren't... but that's how December goes.

For Day #4, I documented our annual Band Mom Christmas Party.  I don't usually do two-page spreads in my DD album; however, the 2x2 page protector that I used on Day #3 didn't leave enough room for my journaling and large group photo.  The supplies from this page are from the Ali Edwards & Jasmine Jones DD kits this year.


Day#5 & #6 ~ I used supplies from the current Ali Edwards DD kit.



Day #7 ~ I used the circles from the Ali Edwards & Jasmine Jones DD kits this year along with dies and embossing folders from Taylored Expressions.  The sticker letters, #7 & the snowflake are all from my stash.


Have A Great Weekend!

Project 52 ~ Week #48

As you can see from my posts over the last week, I'm working on lots of projects right now!  I love getting back into my creative space ~ it makes my heart so happy!  I still need to finish up the last few days of my December Daily album, so for today, I thought I'd post my latest Project 52 page from last week.  My page includes cards from the Amy Tangerine Plus One Mini Kit and photo overlays from the Project 52 Overlays and the new Explorer Edition Photo Overlays.



Thanks for stopping by!

December Daily ~ Day #2 & #3

I'm on a roll with my December Daily Album!  I'm going to try hard to keep up on it either daily or every few days because I'd rather document as things happen.  


For Day #2, I decorated the outside of the house.  We had temps in the 50's over the weekend (which is very unusual for Northern Indiana), so we took advantage of it.  I took a photo of the greenery on my lightpost with the porch garland in the background.  I added my journaling in Photoshop Elements.  The sentiment, stitched circle die and holly die cut are all from Taylored Expressions and the polka-dot paper is from Felicity Jane.  I added a coordinating Day #2 tag that was from the 2015 Ali Edwards DD kit and added the "Day" and holly from Taylored Expressions Dies.



For Day #3, I used the 2x2 pocket page that came with my Ali Edwards album and cut apart the squares from the Jasmine Jones Mini Kit.  The "Day 3" are thicker letters from American Crafts and the snowflake is from my stash.  I added little clear gems to embellish the pattern paper.


Have a wonderful day!

December Daily ~ Cover & Day #1

Welcome to December! 

I decided to do a December Daily Album again this season since I enjoyed my finished album so much last year.  So yesterday, I pulled out and organized all of my DD supplies and worked on the cover page and "my reason why" page {which is also my Day #1 page}.



For the cover page, I used a transparency from Felicity Jane's Joy Kit.  I die cut a large red double stitched circle and embossed the "twenty seventeen" stamp from Studio Calico with Versa Ink and clear embossing powder.  Then I added the large white wooden tree & rubber shape (both from my stash that were in the 2015 Ali Edwards DD kit) and the red felt heart from this year's Ali Edwards DD kit.


On the back of the transparency, I added another double stitched circle the same size with another pattern paper circle inside.  The sticker letters are from Studio Calico and the wooden circle and cork #1 are from the current Ali Edwards DD kit.


For my Day #1 post, I typed up "My Reason Why" page in Photoshop Elements and added a pretty snowflake from my stash with a small felt heart from the DD kit. 


Here's a close up of the snowflake/heart circle.  The title on my letter "My Reason Why" was a free download from Ali Edwards blog last year.



I'll be back next week with more pages from my DD album!

Have a great weekend!

One Little Word ~ September Prompt

Hello Crafty Friends! 

I spent the last few days catching up on my One Little Word prompts for 2017.  This is one of the projects I vowed that I would finish this year, even if I was doing the prompts a bit late. 

For the month of September, the prompt asked us to look at our word as it relates to the words Rest ~ Pace ~ Joy. Are we finding time for those things and are we managing them?   The cards for this month were a digital download from the class & I filled in the text using Photoshop Elements and I added the stamped words from this year's OLW stamp set.



Below are a few photos from this month that described what was happening in my life, a quote card from the monthly download and the Reflections card with my thoughts for this month's prompt.


I'll be back next week with my October & November prompts!  Woohoo ~ it feels great to be caught up on this project... well I am until tomorrow when the December prompt comes out.  LOL!

Have A Wonderful Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #47

Hello Friends! I have to say, I was very tempted to do several pages for last week because Week #47 was super jam packed with activities!  The guys started out the week in Indianapolis and we all ended the Thanksgiving week in Philadelphia and New York City.  Whew... lots of miles for sure!

I used the Wander Edition Kit from the Project Life App for this page & thought it fit the busy week rather well.  I'm sure I'll be using this kit to document more pages for this trip in the upcoming months.



Thanks for stopping by today!

AE & Felicity Jane Page: Surprise!

I'm not sure if you're more surprised by the fact that I'm posting twice in the same week, or that I actually had time to make a 12x12 physical scrapbook layout!  LOL!!! It think this is the first 12x12 layout I've made since April or May and it felt great to get into my craft room again!

Over the last few weeks, since marching band finished up, I've been working on finishing my son's sophomore year Band Album. This is the final page of the school year when he was named Drum Major for his junior year. It was such an exciting night & Matt's reaction was awesome!

I used the Felicity Jane Heidi & Caroline Kits for the pattern papers and embellishments.  I love how their kits work so well together month after month.  The big acrylic "Surprise" word is from the Ali Edwards Surprise Story Kit. 



Thanks for stopping by today!

Project 52 ~ Week #45

Good Monday Morning!!  This morning I have my Project 52 page from last week to share.  It's been such a crazy fall season with marching band it was nice to have a weekend with some down time.  As you can see, my son took advantage of it too :)

For my page, I used the Coral Edition Kit from the Project Life App along with overlays from the Just Add Color Kit.



Have a Wonderful Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #44

I know you aren't going to be surprised by another Marching Band page; however, this week I have a REALLY good excuse.  Last Saturday was State Finals & the Concord Marching Minutemen made it!  Our band has been in Class B for the last 30+ years and have made it to State Finals all but one year.  This year, it was our first year in Class A because our school population went up and many in the marching band community didn't think we would make it to finals!  Well we did & we placed 5th!!!  It was a very exciting week of activities and then Finals on Saturday!  

For my page, I used cards & overlays from the Confetti Edition Kits and I also added a few Just Add Color Overlays to the photos.


Thanks for stopping by!

Project 52 ~ Week 43

Hello Friends!!!  Thanks for hanging in there with me only posting Project Life App pages during this busy season of my life.  I promise I'll have some physical pages posted soon!

I thought I'd add a touch of fall this week on my pages so I used the Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Kit from the Project Life App with a few of Matt's senior pictures.  



Have a Wonderful Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #42

How is it possible that I am sharing Week #42 of this year already?  This year is flying by and I'm so thankful to have the Project Life App to do this project so that I can document the day-to-day.   I used the Azure kit from the App for my page this week. 



Have a Wonderful Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #41

Hi Friends!  Some days I wonder if things will ever slow down... I'm thinking they won't & I'm working hard at embracing that thought.  Don't get me wrong, I love being part of all the things we are involved in, but a little time to catch my breath is a good thing too.  I also think a little time to scrapbook with physical products would do wonders for my soul.  Maybe I can carve out a little time this week... maybe!

Anyway, I wanted to share my Week #41 page with you today.  I used the Project 52 ~ 2016 Edition for my cards and the Dream Chaser & Currently Photo Overlay Kits.

Have a Fantastic Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #40

Another great week and another week of band, band, and more band!  This has been our life for the past 7 years and it's the last season with Concord Marching Band.  Next fall will look very different, that's for sure! 

For this page, I used 2 cards from the Project 52 ~ Fresh Edition.  The cards I used to highlight our band activities are super simple, but I felt like they summed up the week very well. 



Have a great day!
