December Daily 2011 - Days 1, 2, & 3

Hello Everyone! I cannot believe December is already here! This is the second year I am participating in the December Daily project made famous by Designer and Scrapbooker, Ali Edwards.  Ali has showcased this project for several years now, and once I had kids, I knew I had to participate.  This year I decided to go with a standard 8.5 by 11 inch album.  I actually had one of these American Craft Corduroy Albums from another project so that made that decision that much easier.  I really did not do too much prep work before hand, actually I only started on the last day of November. 

 Day 1:
 Day 2:

Day 3:

The next few days will be posted soon. I am having so much fun with album and cannot wait to share some more pages...

Stay tuned for pictures of my pages so far...

October 2011 Projects

Hey.. Here are some of my projects for October for the Jessica Sprague Creative Team.  The first is a flash card memory game using the A to Z Flash Cards by Samantha Walker Designs that will be joining the JS team on 10/10/11. 

 The next two projects are something really dear to my heart and I am hoping this method is going to work for what I am envisioning long term.  I purchased two Smash Books from HSN last week to use to store my childrens' school stuff.  I wanted to have it somewhere in some what of an organized manner so they had it later on!  I used the A to Z Frames and Things and printed them out and cut them out and distressed them.  I then used them to embellish the cover page of the smash book for Aiden.

For the following project, I did everything on the computer in photoshop using the A to Z Patterned Paper pack to make this folder to store Aiden's school work.  I then printed it and cut it to fit the folder. I then adhered the folder to the page and added the school work with some embellishments.
Thanks for stopping by to check out these projects! Stay tuned for more posts about my smash books.

Crumply Flower Tutorial ...

I am so excited to share my Crumply Flower Tutorial over at Mouse, Paper, Lovely.  This blog was set up to showcase the hybrid projects created by the Jessica Sprague Creative Team.  Every Tuesday, there will be a hybrid project that one of the talented girls has created.. and guess what? Today my tutorial is live. 

You can see the tutorial here!

Please keep in mind that this was not my original idea and that I got the idea after watching a video tutorial on Dawn McVey's blog.  The link to her video tutorial can be found at the end of my tutorial!

JS Creative Team Projects

I was pretty busy this weekend working on some Jessica Sprague Creative Team Projects. I am so excited that I was able to create some things that I had envisioned and watched tutorials on.

The first are these Crumply Paper Flower Embellishments. I watched a tutorial on Dawn McVey's blog and had to try these out with the Echo Park Be Mine Valentine Paper Pack available at These were actually really easy tomake and very inexpensive since I printed the digital papers on regular computer paper. It crumpled up nicely. :)

Next up is a Hybrid Valentine's Day Card and Matching Envelope. Again these cards and envelopes are using the Echo Park Be Mine Paper Pack. I created a 8.5 x 11 canvas in photoshop and added my papers in stripes of 1 inch wide. I then printed and ran the sheet through my cuttlebug and the Top Note Die by Stampin Up. Once cut, I adhered a stamped sentiment using the Papertrey Ink Simple Valentine's Stamp Set, attached a crumply flower and called it a day. I also took some left over paper that was printed to adhere to the envelope and stamped some hearts from the same Papertrey Ink Stamp Set.

Next up is a Family Themed Memory Card Game I created for my kids. I created another template on photoshop and clipped pictures of each family member twice into the template. I then printed them on my home photo printer. I also took the same template and clipped different papers into from Jessica Sprague's Site and then printed that on cardstock. I attached both sheets together and cut each "card" out. I rounded the corners with the Corner Chomper and stamped the word "family" on the front of each card using Technique Tuesday's Ali Edwards Family Circle Stamp. I am hoping the kids enjoy these and learn as they "play".

As always, remember to visit Jessica Sprague's site and get your hands on some yummy digi goodies and start creating today!
