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!!!
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.
Treasa has a special Sunday post for you all. Check out the awesome handmade project life cards she made for a swap she is in.
I totally love this catchy song from Taylor Swift ,so much in fact that I created a PL card using it as my inspiration. I created the card in my Silhouette software then I printed it out and used the print and cut feature to cut the card out for me. I then backed it with some black card stock and added the music note flair from The Crafty Pickle as a final touch. I love how it gives it some bling with the silver glitter.
So remember to keep on cruising and don’t stop grooving….
Thanks Treasa, I think this is one of my favorite cards you have made yet!
Hi there, its Treasa here today to share a Project Life card that I made using some of the new Autumn sequin mix in The Crafty Pickle shop and a new flair badge that Taniesa created for wonderful fall season. I must confess that I absolutely love the fall, mostly because of the beautiful trees and the cooler weather but also because its “Pumpkin Season” and I love anything pumpkin and one of my most favorites are Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks. These things are fabulous and its like getting a mouthful of fall.
As soon as I received the Autumnsequin mix and thePSl flair I knew I had to create a Project Life card to document my love of PSL.
Here is a close up of that wonderful PSL flair and some of the sequins from the Autumn mix.
I also used some of the paper from the Close to my Heart Pathfinding line. This collection is so perfect for fall and coordinates so well with the Cozy Fall button flairs in the shop. You can also find the Pathfinding collection in Taniesa’s CTMH shop here.
Here’s one last look at the gorgeous Autumn sequin mix in the shop.
Thank you for stopping by and go check out The Crafty Pickle shop and blog.
Thanks, Treasa! I loved how you used all the fun fall products to make such a beautiful card for your Project Life album!!
