Gold Gold Gold Mini Album!!!

Happy Monday to everyone!!!

I love to make a mini album especially if it is for my two nieces ….we had such a wonderful time at Disneyland and California Adventure in July that I just had to make an album!!!

I just love going there all the people ( cast members) just go out of their way to help you in any way that they can!!!

My method to making a mini album is I slide all the pictures in the protectors, then go back and add the paper, and next I decorate the cover because that sets the tone for the album for me …and last (my favorite)  I add all the wonderful embellishments from The Crafty Pickle!!!

Here is my album cover:

Planner Time and Video!!!

Hi Friends!
It’s Paula here to share my planner layout for this week with you. I am loving my traveler’s notebook so I wanted to share how I am using some of the awesome planner items in The Crafty Pickle shop!
First off I am loving the Pickle Planner Midori/Fauxdori Planner Interchangeable Charm. It is so awesome and cute! I love that I can change out the magnetic charm as often as I want…what a great idea! For this week’s layout I used the Rainbow Doodle Cameras washi to add some fun and whimsy to the notes page. Since I will be celebrating my friend’s birthday with her this week I used some of the Fruity Pebbles Relish Mix to make that day festive!

I used some of the Sticky Pickle Spots as bullet points for my errands and appointments and some of the sticky notes and page flags in the shop to make lists for tasks I need to accomplish this week and to make things pop on the page. And finally one of my favorite planning items is the customized flair bookmark…it takes me right to my current week!

Organizing FlairTastic Friday!!!

Happy Friday Y’all!!!

This is the last in our series in FlairTastic Friday!!  It is all about organization organization organization!!! Let us see what you got in the order of organization…

This is what Taniesa has for you:

I saw ideas of putting them flat in CD cases. Putting them in packaging inside a basket and flipping though them, even putting them in coin page protectors and placing in a binder. All very clever ideas but none of which I thought would work for me.

I knew that they needed to be organized by color. If you have seen my previous posts you know that I organize nearly everything by color. I also knew that I needed something that would have room to add more than my current collection. I didn’t want to have to have multiple cases for one type of embellishment (except washi tape and PL cards, those don’t count ).

While I was at Michaels in the beading section I came across a fantastic sectioned organizer (for bead organization) and it was really reasonable ($5.99) It had more space than a embroidery floss organizer box ($2.99) and I figured it just might work. Here is my little button collection.

In addition to organizing by color I have 4 sections dedicated to seasonal buttons. Spring, summer, fall, and winter. There is also multi-colored button sections and spaces for specific themed flair.

This is from Joann:

She sent me this idea that she found on the internet- Clipboard at a glance -love this idea..check out the link!!!

Here is a link to her post:

This is some great ideas that I found out on Pinterest:

ae294eb4a7cf4796871367c58b637118

Use an old letterpress drawer or curio shelf to organize embellishments….

Here is a link to her blog to see how she used this letter press to organize here project life embellishments

And then one last one I had to share…. Here

Christmas in July!!!

Happy Saterday, thank you so much for stopping by!!

Today I am sharing a Christmas card I made using the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and a coordinating stamp set.

This cartridge collection is fabulous and if you haven’t seen the cuts this cartridge has, click here to take a look!
And then here is a link to her blog:

I used the cartridge to cut a frame (pg. 62) and used the Perfect Fit- Frames Flair stamp set to stamp my image on the frame with some Cranberry Ink. I then cut the tree (pg. 31) and stamped my image with the coordinating stamp set that comes with the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge bundle with some Pear Ink.

This cartridge has some fun borders that you can cut out, I took the border on page 63 and cut it out using some fun CTMH Silver Glitter cardstock. Using the same stamp set as my tree, I stamped my sentiment on some vellum with some StazOn. I finished my card by adding some foam adhesive to my images and some TCP Winter Sequins Mix.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Next, Joann is displaying something adorable and useful for your everyday. She decorated this inexpensive metal display board at the local craft store, added a bit of washi and some number flair from the TCP shop and she now has a great visual daily/weekly reminder of things going on for her family. Did you know you can make any flair button in the shop into a magnet? Setting up a fun calendar like this can be done in a snap! Stop by Joann’s blog for more info!

Next up is Taniesa who has a special gift she created for her daughter for her birthday. Using pieces of clipart she found, she created flair that represents everything her 8 year old daughter is into at the moment. She then attached it to a painted canvas and filled in spots using buttons, gems, enamel dots, and other fun bits and pieces. Tutorial on this project is coming soon! You can create fun flair like this too by choosing the Create your own Flair listing in the TCP Shop!
