Hi Friends!

I have a review coming soon but I know some of you have been asking me about some organizing ideas for your craft space.

I am in love with the new Desk Maid products from Totally-Tiffany!

Here is a quick picture of a cubby I am working on. We still need to do some painting in my new room but I was too anxious to see how all these organizers would fit.

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.

tcp23

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!

Tuesday Planner Love!

Hi Friends & Happy Tuesday!

It’s Lisa here today to share this week’s planner layout.¬†Planners are on trend in the Paper crafting community. The Crafty Pickle’s shop will be opening back up soon. Be sure to check out all of the planner goodies in¬†The Crafty Pickle’s new inventory. It’s a planner’s¬†dream!!

For this layout, I was inspired by the new goodies in The Craft Pickle Shop. I covered all of the lines on the page using The Crafty Pickle’s thin glitter Washi Tape. This defines the boxes and makes it fun!! The Crafty Pickle just introduced the Sticky Pickle Spot Stickers. These are so awesome to accent important appointments or to just decorate with. They come in¬†asterisks, stars, hearts and circles.
TCP2

Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your planner gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Rock Candy Mix and are super easy to attach. I used a dot of Glossy¬†Accents to attach them.¬†Who doesn’t love sequins???!!!
TCP3

 I used the Project Life Everyday Line paper pad & cardstock stickers to accent my layout. I cut triangles & rectangles to accent the planner boxes which adds some color and texture to the pages.

tcp4tcp5

I also attached a “This Month”¬†planner clip! The Crafty Pickle has come out with personalized clips that are adorable!! I used the¬†planner clip to “bookmark” my week. That makes it super easy to grab my week!

Product List:

Rock Candy Relish Mix

Planner Clip

TCP Washi Rolls

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.

Back to school 2015d

Supplies Used:

Gold sequin star from Star Spangled Relish Mix
Colorful Star Scatter Washi
Stars Sticky Pickle Spots
Heart Sticky Pickle Spots
Personalized Flair – All you have to do is send a message requesting what you would like

Until next time!!
