Project Life with Mona

Hi Crafty Friends!

  Today we have another fabulous project life spread with Mona. Take a look!

Hello !
I’m back here with one of the last 3 pages of 2014 from my Project Life album. Who else is still in previous year with PL?  But I’m back on track again, so my new pages will show up here soon.

For this spread I used Studio Calico cards from last 2 Pl kits, some embellishments as weel, but  the most important are flairs from The Crafty Pickle, which I like so much.

This is kind of embellishment, which fits everywhere, in every PL page.
At the end of this post, you can find links for flairs I used. TFL!

Flairs I used:
– glitter symbols 
– vintage camera 
– everything is awesome 
– speech bubble 
– black&white patterned

Do you like badges / flairs? How do you like to use them?
I’m curious if anybody likes to use them on PL pages, as much as I do.

Thanks for sharing Mona! I always love your Project life pages!

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

FriYAY!!!!!!!!!

Hi Happy Crafty Friends!!!

  It is finally Friday! We made it! I dont know about you but this week was a long one and I am ready for the weekend and some scrappy time!

 Today designer, Stephanie, has TWO projects to share with you using TCP flair. I hope you love her projects as much as I do, Take a look!

_________________________________________________________________________

I have two projects to share today featuring flair from The Crafty Pickle . The first one is a card that I made for my daughter who is trying out for her school gymnastics team this week! She was nervous & pretty certain that she wouldn’t make the team, so I wanted to make her a card to give her a little extra encouragement!!
I started with this sketch from Cardabilities:
    
I used my Martha Stewart punch to create the branches in the background. The “shine” flair button is from TCP & can be found here .
I love the combination of colors & textures here! Hope she enjoys the cad too (even if she doesn’t make the team!) I will always be her biggest fan, regardless!
My next project is a layout that started with sketch from Sketchabilities:
I just love a good sketch & this one really caught my eye! Sketchabilities is also teaming up with the challenge site, White With One for this sketch challenge. You are to use white & the color “placid blue”. Here is my page:
I used scrap papers from my stash (I am on a roll using them up nowadays!) and the flair here is also from The Crafty Pickle.
The “snapshots” flair is from their adorable Bright Everyday set. This set comes with 6 buttons that are prefect for any layout, card or PL spread!

The “shake your flakes” flair button comes by itself & is the perfect embellishment for all your winter projects!!  It’s too cute!

I added in other embellishments to complete my page and give it more dimension from Elle’s Studio, Pink Paislee, October Afternoon & Studio Calico.
Thanks for visiting on this Friday!

What’s your word for 2015?

Hi Crafty Friends, 

  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.

Until  next time,

Project Life with Monika

Hi Crafty Friends!

   Have you all started your Project life albums for 2015? I still have the holidays to finish up before I dive into a new album. Designer, Mona, is finishing up her 2014 with this awesome page she has to share today. Take a look!

I’m still big fan of The Crafty Pickle Badges. I love to use them in my PL pages. I made week47 using some of them. I love especially the glitter one, with Happy Birthday words. I also used speach buble and others ( I’m listing them at the end of my post).
Here is my PL page. TFL!

Flairs I used:

– november

– speech bubble

Thanks so much for sharing today, Mona. I love your page and your little boy is just adorable!

Happy Crafting,

Snow…. in California?

Hi Crafty Friends!

  Happy New Year! I hope the holidays treated you well and that you’re off to a great 2015! Today, designer Carrie has a great first layout of 2015 showing her home in california covered in snow! It doesn’t happen often so this was a nice surprise! Check it out!

Happy New Year.  I can hardly believe it’s 2015.

Today I am sharing my first winter layout. This page will actually be at the end of my 2014 family album.  We had a rare snow fall where I live in Murrieta California.  It has not snowed here in ten years, and even then it was just a dusting.  We actually got about a foot of snow that lasted several days.

For this page I used a ton of beautiful shiny sequins from TheCraftyPicklethey came in the Winter Mix pack.    Can I just tell you that I am a bit obsessed with sequins right now. They are such an easy embellishment and very reasonably priced.  Easy to apply with a bit of liquid glue or mini glue dots.

Here is a closer look at some cards I created by embossing some snowflakes onto vellum and then adding a bit of shimmer watercolors.  I of course added some sequins to embellish these cards too.

When you order flair from Taniesa your flair is packaged with sequins/confetti in a glassine bag.

Its like a little party when you open the cute little package. I use these sequins all the time, they are the perfect accent to any project.

This glitter flair is perfect on my pages, adds that special touch I like to set the feeling I want to document.
Of course I had to add one of my new blue color pop flairs to this card. It matches my sequins too.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Happy Scrappin in the New Year

Carrie

Happy Crafting!

December Daily update with Treasa!

Hi Crafty Friends!
  Treasa has been working on her December Daily and it is ADORABLE! Check out her progress!
Hi there, today I wanted to share a few cards I made for my December  Daily. First up I wanted to share how I was documenting my days of the month in my album.
As soon as I seen these flair in The Crafty Pickle shop I  knew I had to use them in my album. I love the silver glitter and the fun font. These Elegant December flair add the perfect touch to my pages even with some sparkle.

 

I also made some cards to add in my album using more of the fabulous flair found in The Crafty Pickle. First up is the card I made to document the return of our Elf on the Shelf Elvis Parsley.  The Personalized Elf flairs are perfect and I love how you can get them personalized with your elf’s name.
Up next is a card that was inspired by my album that I am suing for my December Daily. I totally fell in love with the burlap and rustic look of it. So I decided to make a card using burlap and one of the flair badges from the December button flair set.
And lastly, I had to make a card to document my love of Starbucks red cups. These red cup flair buttons was a special request and I think they turned out fabulous.
I have to say that I am loving all the flair buttons that I have received from The Crafty Pickle  and  how I can personalize my album and cards. It makes this album so much more special. Please visit The Crafty Pickle and remember that Taniesa takes special orders, so if you don’t see it in the store, send her a message.
Don’t forget to stop by The Crafty Pickle for me fabulous and creative ideas.

Elf on the Shelf

Hi Crafty Friends!
 Do you take part in the Elf on the Shelf tradition each year? Designer, Kristin, has a great idea for a Elf on the Shelf Album that is totally adorable. Check it out!
***************************************************************************************************
I am doing some prep work for my “Elf on a Shelf” album for my little one this year!!!
We just bought him so this is going to be fun this year with this cute little elf …who knows what he is going to get into!!
I used an album that had red in it for the cute Elf and I used on this wooden piece Ranger silver super fine embossing powder ,next I added cork to the circle and with Black Stazon I used the star in the Artiste stamp set in the background. Next, I made a snowflake with the Pathfinder paper from Close to my Heart, backed the “Elf on the Shelf” flair with red cardstock that you can get in the store.
I started to make some fun cards to put in the “Elf” book and made this cute tree with the camera, red and elf on the shelf flair from the store. I also used Cricut Artbooking Collection stamps,some more of the Pathfinder Collection, the Christmas sequins, and then clear sequins that comes in the packaging!!! Here is a link to her CTMH Store

 

All these fun products were so fun to play with!!!

Thanks, Kristin. I LOVE your album. This is a great idea to do in conjunction with or instead of December Daily. I can’t wait to see the finished album!

Happy Crafting!
