Happy Mail

I love getting postcards! 
I know I have slowed down in 
sending cards due to the postage increase. I often wonder if there will be a time when there is no mail???

Here are some of the recent postcards I got...

This is a photo of the lady's cat that she turned into a postcard.

What was the last thing you sent in the mail?

Got it made!!!~December Album

I got my December Mini-Album 
made this past week.... 

I am not quite done as I still need to add more pages since I plan to document the whole month of December not just the first 12 or 25 days.

I could not find an album that worked for what I wanted so I found 2 chipboard to created the foundation of the book.

 This photo was before I put the book together. I plan to add more ribbons to the rings as it goes along.

The flowers that I used on the cover were actually from a valentine kits. I tried to find things from my stash to complete this book. Thinking outside of what it is made for helps makes things more unique.

The button was from the Studio Calico 25 days Christmas class. I wasn't sure I would like using buttons but after this I really like them. They are flatter than most.

This is the first page and the inside cover on the left. I will post more photos after I get the book finish.

What are you doing for December?

Mini album

While unpacking I found a mini album that I made a from my trip to the coast with my sister and her son.
This was an album that I made from acrylic covers and file folders as the pages.  I used several items that I had from my stash which made the book simple and affordable.

Its easier to see the cover page...

The right hand side has a pocket 

This one has an extra fold out page...

I still need to add more journaling to the album which I had written in a notebook while on the trip.

I may use this idea for my December album but not sure yet...what do you think?

December Daily Album

I can not believe it is almost December?!? Where did 2012 go? This year I wanted to get my album done before December to help getting into the spirit of the season. I looked all over at kits online, in the stores and really did not see what I was looking for so while I was out in the "BIG" city I stopped by the scrapbook store and collected a few items to create this years book.

I will also add some items from my stash as well. 
After getting home I realized that 98% of the items are from Simple Stories
Here are some of the products that I will plan on using: Countdown stickersHomemade Holiday Sn@p pages

This year I am taking the class over on Studio Calico called "25 days: A December Daily"
 which should be fun!! Can not wait. I am also reading the blog from Ali Edwards.

These are the Homemade Holiday Sn@p pockets from Simple stories

I did not find an actual album to hold the pages together so I will have to create something which will be fun since I am still working out of my boxes from the move. I did clean out a few but nothing is back in place so its lots of fun trying to remember where I put everything :)

Stay posted!!

You are already AMAZING!

A while back my husband picked up a book for me to read. 
I know I have zillion of books to read but this one is different. 
Its a book that helped me realize that I am amazing! 
It is by Holley Gerth called "You're Already Amazing".  More information or to Pick it up here

Holley talks to you as a friend and it really has given me a new look on life and what God's purpose has for me. I am only on a few chapter's in so I am looking forward to finishing the book and seeing how it works out. I do not want to give away too much since the book may have different meaning for different readers.

If you want to drop by and visit Holley Gerth Blog please do!!

Project Life update

I got everything out and found that I have not entered anything from 2012. That is one thing I like about doing this yearly album this way. It makes it easy to pull together several days and months.

Since me moved my scrapbook room is currently filled with boxes that need to be unpacked. I am having to use the kitchen table to put everything together.

Since I am working on January, it is possibly because during the year I placed everything in an envelope and write the date on the back. I also write notes on my daily calendar to help know what happen when.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
