Hello Santa!

Hi Crafty Friends! It’s Lisa here today from Happy Paper & Ink¬†to share a new Project Life card that I created. I am¬†doing some preparation for my¬†December Daily album, so that is what inspired me to create this card.

 tcp22

For this card, I started with Pink Paislee Merry & Bright¬†6×6 paper pad. I cut a tag and a 4×6 project life card from the paper pad. I then¬†cut strips of paper for the side border¬†to add some¬†interest.¬†I cut a snowflake tag¬† on white and red paper using my Silhouette Cameo.¬†I also cut the title using gold glitter vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo for the title “Hello¬†Santa”. ¬† I doodled around all the edges with a black 0.8 American Crafts Black Pen and inked with black Memento Ink.

To finish off the¬†card, I used¬†The Crafty Pickle’s¬†Black & White Color Pop Flair¬†and applied it to the top of the snowflake tag. I added some sequins to the corner of the card¬†from The Crafty Pickle. Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your¬†layout or cards¬†gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Magical Mouse¬†mix for this card. I layered the sequins and put red glitter stickle dots on top of some of the sequins to change the look a little. And finally, I tied a bow at the top of the snowflake tag to tie it all together!

I hope you enjoyed my Project Life card & are inspired. Look for some more blog posts showing my December Daily in the future!

Thanks for looking & Happy Crafting!

December Daily – The Joy of Christmas!

Hi Crafty Friends! It’s Lisa here today from Happy Paper & Ink¬†to share a new Project Life card that I created. I am in the beginning stages of working on my December Daily album, so that is what inspired me to create this card.

IMG_6989

For those of you not familiar with December Daily, Ali Edwards created it to document the days of your December. Basically, you do a page for each day spotlighting the activities of the day to include your family traditions, etc. This will be my first year to do this, and I am super excited!

For this card, I started with Pink Paislee Merry & Bright¬†6×6 paper pad. I cut a tag and a 3×4 project life card from the paper pad. I then used The Crafter’s Workshop Positive Stencil¬†and texture paste to create the black cross or plus signs on the paper to add some dimension and interest in the corners. I doodled around all the edges with a black 0.8 American Crafts Black Pen and inked with black Memento Ink.IMG_6987

To finish off the top of the card, I used¬†The Crafty Pickle’s¬†Black & White Color Pop Flair¬†and wrapped a ribbon around it. I added some sequins from The Crafty Pickle. Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your¬†layout or cards¬†gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Magical Mouse¬†mix for this card.

IMG_6988

The title on the card is made by using American Crafts cardstock stickers and American Crafts Be Merry Red Thickers Alphabet.

I hope you enjoyed my Project Life card & are inspired to start a December Daily! Look for some more blog posts showing my December Daily in the future!

Thanks for looking & Happy Crafting!

A Favorite Memory

Hey there crafty friends! It’s Stephanie here today to share my latest layout.

I am trying my hardest to get caught up on older photos that need to be scrapped and getting my kids’ albums organized! It’s a big undertaking but I love making scrapbook pages & revisiting old memories. This one is one of my favorites!

puddles & rainbootsMy son loved his red rain boots when he was three and in them he discovered the love of jumping in puddles! I will never forget how happy he was when we returned home from an errand & he was able to splash in the puddles!

IMG_1190This flair button is the perfect compliment to my page!! It is the “Favorite Memory”¬†button from the ¬†I added it on top of a chipboard circle which was placed on top of a cork circle for added dimension. I love adding thread on my page to lend some texture.

IMG_1191IMG_1192   A few more fun embellishments and another page & memory are scrapped & ready to go in the album!

Thanks for visiting! Make it a crafty day!!

It’s a Circus! Pocket Letter

circus1

Happy Saturday Crafty Pickle Pals!

 I am here to share my latest Pocket Letter created with goodies from TCP!

¬†I fell in love with the Circus flair set when I saw it in the shop so I let it inspire this letter. ¬†When I don’t have paper or stamps to fit the themes I want to create with, I utilize Pinterest and Google image searches to find unique pictures and clip art to use in my letters. ¬†I create my own collage sheet of sorts by copying and pasting the images into Microsoft Word documents and resizing them to fit my needs. ¬†For this letter, and many that I do, I enjoy juxtaposing vintage imagery with more current clip art for a unique look. ¬†I created this letter using the clip art I found and fussy cut, as well as the Circus flair, sticky pickle spots, and the Disney Relish Sequin Mix from the shop (I picked out the Mickey head sequins so I was left with the fun black spotted ones and the red and yellow to match my color scheme in my shaker pocket). ¬†Check out some detail shots below and don’t forget to click on the photos to see them larger!

I can’t wait till the shop reopens so I can add some more fun goodies to my stash! ¬†I haven’t been to a circus since I was small–but this theme was so fun to work with and I never know what will inspire me next from The Crafty Pickle. ¬†I hope I inspired you too!

Happy crafting!

Cuties-A Scrapbbok Page

Hi Crafty friends! Happy Monday to you all. Hope it is going well so far for you!

I have another layout to share today using flair buttons from the store.¬†Today I used a button from the gold foil collection that I absolutely adore and one from the “Life Documented” collection.

cuties

I started with a¬†sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy this month and kept my page pretty simple. I love this photo of my two kiddos along with their cousins on St. Patrick’s Day! I wanted it to stand out and the flair buttons placed at each end of the picture really¬† help to anchor it yet also make it pop!

IMG_0974

IMG_0973

I¬†chose the “Oh Happy Day” button to compliment the beige and green on the page.

IMG_0972

The “Today” flair button worked well with the¬†St. Patrick’s Day theme!

Try adding some fun flair to your next scrapbook page! I guarantee you’ll love the results!!

Thanks for stopping by!
