It’s a Circus! Pocket Letter

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!

Super Cute Planner Love!!

Hi Friends!
It’s Paula here to share my planner layout for this week with you.
I am using my MAMBI Happy Planner to plan out my week for my video, design team, and IG postings so I wanted to share how I am using some of the awesome planner items in The Crafty Pickle shop!

I want my planner to be functional first and foremost but I also want it to be pretty and fun! First off I am loving the large planner clip to mark my page. It is so cute and functional! For this week’s layout I used the gold glitter washi to add some glitz and glam. I used some of the Fruity Pebbles Relish Mix and Amy Tangerine vellum hearts which go perfect with the colors for September in the planner. I also used some of the Sticky Pickle Spots as bullet points for my posting reminders. And finally I used some Close To My Heart stamps to make the layout fun!

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!

Back to School

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:

Back to school 2015I 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”.

Back to school 2015aI have to say that Kaylee loves contributing to my memory keeping in my PL album and it definitely  it more personal to me.

             Back to school 2015bBack to school 2015c

I hope this inspires you to get the children in your life more involved in your PL album.
