New years eve eve!

It’s almost time! Just over 24 hours until the new year. Are you ready? Today I’m having mixed emotions about it, Ha! It always feels great to start fresh. Then again there were things I had hoped to get done this year that just didn’t seem to make it on my to-do list.  Anyhow New Years Eve will happen wither or not I’m ready for it so I decided to get a little festive. My Cameo has been getting a workout today helping me prepare party decor. Here’s a little sneaknew years decor 1 new years decor 2These fun little pouches are filled with small silver star confetti (use small confetti so it’s easy to vacuum).  I created the cards in my silhouette cameo program then printed them out. Easy peasy!

Have a happy safe New Years!

Project Life 2013 // my favorite bits

 This year I love Project Life even more than I did last year. I feel like I’ve gotten in my grove finally. Recently I was caught up for this year (gasp I know!) so I decided to go back and finish up last years. This weekend I can officially call it done! Now that is a good feeling let me tell you. I thought I would share some of my favorite bits from this years album. {click photos to enlarge}

Typing a brief description of what we did each day helped tell the story of our vacation without taking up too much space. I created these right in Microsoft word. Just create a 3X4 ‘document’ and type away. My printer even allows me to print directly on them without having to attach the small cards to something larger.  So easy!

These are the last few pages of my December Daily from last year.  We got to 3-4 houses each day so they are jammed full of goodness. Tying lets me get more of the story in there without having to add 20 more pages.  I am so ready to start this years book! Just a few more weeks…whohoo!

Thanks for stopping by!

December Daily 2012 // days 13 – 21

december daily 2012 020 december daily 2012 022 december daily 2012 024I love including christmas cards from my closest friends in my album. It’s a great way to display those photo cards from your loved ones. It’s hard to tell in the photo but the number 19 page is glitter paper covered with a transparency, I added sequences then sewed it all together. After it was assembled I embellished on top of it.

Since it was so full I had to upgrade the rings to bigger ones but only had two so for now it’ll have to work. On day 5 I had a lot of photos so to include them all I added that cute chevron bag to house all the pictures. It makes it easy to just pull them out and look at them.  

December Daily 2012 // cover

As I was preparing for this years December Daily album I realized last years never got its debut. This week I will be sharing last years along with how I’m setting mine up for this year. december daily 002 december daily 019 december daily 021

This thing is a beast! It’s so much larger than I expected it to be. Most of that is due to the amount of flair I used. On Etsy I got these really cool flair date badges (when I find the shop I will link it up) and they added a ton of bulk. But they were cute so I couldn’t resist! The result is just this chunky monkey.  

Welcome to my new home!

It’s been a long time coming but I finally got my site up and running. There will still be a little dust as I tweak things here and there but at this point I’m happy to have it all in one place!

Project life 2013 // Week 2

Week two and my life still consisted of packing. This week I used a mixture of the Seafoam and Olive kits along with a few cards from the Studio Calico project life kit. It’s nice having a variety of cards to choose from so I don’t get bored looking through the same ones over and over.
I’m loving my Shilloutte so much! It’s so easy to use which makes me actually use it. Unlike the machine I had before that I hardly ever used. Totally getting my moneys worth.
