New Home Cards

I have a lot of friends/family moving this summer, so I needed some cute new home cards. Here's what I came up with:

The stickers are from doodlebug designs. I dusted them with baby powder on the back so they wouldn't stick, and put them on the cards with pop dots. The paper is from Archiver's and I'm not sure about the stamp. I printed the inside with "...on your new home!" on my computer.

Very happy with the result!

Valentine's Day

The kids and I made these out of foam for Scott and their grandparents (I cannot get the picture to flip even though it is correct on my computer):

I got the idea from an Oriental Trading Company catalog.

I made this cute card to send to a few relatives:

Got the original idea from my friend Diane.

Project Life

I did Project 365 in 2009 and was really happy with it. Mostly how I could tell the big stories and little ones that might never make it into a traditional scrapbook. So I bought Project Life for 2010. And didn't do any of it until my girl's getaway weekend. I knew I might not have a photo-a-day in 2010, but thought I could just fill it in with what I had. And until I did some of 2010 to decide if I liked that approach, I wasn't going to buy one for 2011 no matter how cute it was! Here's me ready to go on 2010:

And I did like how it was coming together, so here is my 2011 edition:

I'll keep you posted on how it goes!

I made a tutu for Jillian's Halloween costume and it was so easy, I tried to figure out what other little girls I could make them for! My Terp friends may be seeing these (cheerleading skirts, right?) in the future!

Working on 2011 Cards

Can't show them to you until the end of the year, but something new: I am signing and dating the back of every one!

I made these frames for a few of my girlfriends for Christmas this year. I modge-podged paper from their schools onto an inexpensive wooden frame from Michael's. then painted around the edges and on the back.
