Hey there it Treasa with another Project Life Kids post.
I can’t believe how fast the summer has gone by and that school starts this week. My granddaughter Kaylee will be going into the second grade and I wanted to create something I could use in my PL album to document this exciting time. I wanted to not only document the normal things, like first day of school photo, teachers name and school. I wanted to capture a piece of Kaylee during this time. So I created a card for her to fill out to capture some aspects of her life right now. To keep it personal I had a personalized flair made with her name and her grade. I thought it was the perfect finishing touch. Here is what I came up with:
I created a file pocket to kind of represent the files kept in the cabinet at school and added some of the star washi tape from the shop to the front of the file pocket. I added a card that says Star Student, this will be a place to put her first day of school photo on. Then I added a Friends card for her to add her friends names. I also used some of the new star and heart Sticky Pickle Spots from the shop. And then on the bus die cut I put her bus number. Finishing it off I used the personalized flair from the shop that says “Kaylee Grade 2”.
I have to say that Kaylee loves contributing to my memory keeping in my PL album and it definitely it more personal to me.
I hope this inspires you to get the children in your life more involved in your PL album.
Hi there, its Treasa here today and I wanted to share how I get my granddaughter involved in my Project Life album. Of course I have tons of photos of her and memorabilia from places and events but I wanted to have her add a personal touch to my album. So I have her draw me a picture or write me a note on a PL card. I think it will be a great way to look back on and remember that time.
Today I gave her a plain 4×6 piece of heavy weight cardstock and asked her to draw me a picture of her and I and this is what she came up with:I just added a star for the flair to sit on and added the date to the card. In case you can’t tell that is her and me sitting by the pool.
I love how I can get custom flair from The Crafty Pickle to help make my PL album more personalized. The Art by flair is also available in several different colors and you can also get it as a magnet and display your little ones art on the refrigerator.
So grab some blank PL cards and hand your kids some crayons, markers, pencils and let them help make your PL album more personal and special.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!!!

Hi there, today I am going to share something a little different with you. I would like to share my process for creating some PL cards for a swap at PLCS. The theme of the swap is Happy Mail and I knew that I had to use these fabulous Happy Mail flair badges from The Crafty Pickle Shop for my cards. I have to say that the font is super cute but the silver glittered words is what sold me. I hope you enjoy watching my process of creating these cards.
This Father’s Day will be particularly hard for me and my family this year. We lost our Dad in February to a traumatic accident.
My Dad was an awesome guy and the life of the party. We know that he wouldn’t want us to be sad on this day, so I decided
we would celebrate him on Father’s Day. Taniesa created some special flair for me so that I could use them to create cards for my
PL album. I have to say when I first saw them , I cried and I couldn’t believe how perfect and how special these were.
First I wanted to create a card using this My Favorite Memory of my Dad flair so I could document that memory of my Dad.
His grandchildren called him Superman, they seen him as a strong man who could get through anything, so I wanted to create
a card to honor our ” Superman” using a custom flair of a photo of my Dad.
Lastly I wanted to share a lovely gift that Taniesa sent to me for my family and me to wear on Father’s Day, how special is this ribbon and its something we could wear every Father’s Day!!
I love how special these custom flair are and how they will help us celebrate and remember my Dad on this Father’s Day.
Taniesa can create custom flair for you no matter the subject, just send her a message in The Crafty Pickle shop and let
her know what you are looking for.

Hi there, I can not believe that it’s almost Valentines day. This year is already going by super fast. Today I wanted to share with you all some Valentines Day cards that I made for my Project Life album using watercolors. I was totally inspired these Watercolor hearts flair badges in The Crafty Pickle shop.
So I cut me down some 3×4 blank cards and got out my watercolor pencils and started creating. Here are the cards that I came up with.
I hope that these cards inspire you to pull out your watercolors and create some fabulous cards. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!
Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Treasa! Your cards are absolutely adorable.
Designer, Treasa, is up on the blog today sharing how she is incorporating her one little word into her project life album. Take a look!
Hi there, today I wanted to share my word that I had chosen for this new year. This year I chose the word simplify. I chose this word for numerous reasons but most of all to just make my life easier. I always like to document my word for the year in my first page in my PL album. This year I wanted to really have my word stand out and make it special, so I added some custom flair badges from The Crafty Pickle. I even designed the simplify badge and Taniesa was awesome to create it for me. And I have to say I love how it turned out. Below are the two cards I created to spotlight my word Simplify for the year 2015. With the first card I added the Simplify flair badge and wanted that to be the focal point of the card. In the second card I added the 2015 flair badge to emphasize the year, then I added my journaling on why I chose my word.
So whats your word for the year 2015? I would love to hear how you came to choose your word and how you plan on documenting it. How would you like to win your own word flair badge along with a 2015 flair badge. All you need to do is leave me a comment on my blog HERE by Saturday Jan 25th at 10:00 pm. I will then draw a winner on Sunday Jan 26th. Also during this time, Taniesa is offering 15% off purchase of $10 or more using coupon code TCP2015 now through Sunday! Good luck and I can’t wait to hear your 2015 word.
