So I had this GRAND idea of how this week was supposed to go, the pictures I would take, and how it would all come together. I had originally decided to do it last week because I felt inspired so began the heavy documenting and photo taking. Then about half way through the week it fizzled. John left with kelsey and it was just me and Taryn. Then Taryn went to LA with my sister for some auntie time... see where I am going with this. I ended up giving up *sigh* another project down the tubes. Then the official …

Week 1: Make Your Own Embellishments

Written by
Each week we are going to use bits and pieces to include scraps to make our own embellishments. No need to spend upwards of $3.99 for all those cutesie embellies on the shelves! We are perfectly capable of making just as unique items that actually fit the pages we are making rather than buying and hoarding the bits and baubles that are all the rage. Follow along with me during the month where we will cover using your punches, stamps, and random letters to make 30 different beautiful embellishments! All of these embellishments are super fun and easy. I wanted…
So you have all of these amazing journal cards, now what? We have been working hard on challenges and ways to use your journal cards other than the pocket style scrapping. Check out our list and examples below: 1) Print on them... skies the limit here. Print journaling, pictures, doodles, clip art. Use this handy tutorial and PSE template on how to orient your cards and make for super quick printing! 2) Use them as mats for photos or backgrounds for embellishing. In this example I have added some embellishments to some mini 2x2 journal cards as the page decoration.…

How to Recolor Digital Elements in your Kits

Written by
One of the most common questions I get asked in the digital world is "How can I recolor a button or flower from my kit to match my page?" You may be asking "Why would anyone do this?" Well sometimes there is a button from a particular kit you loved the design to but sadly that button is from a different kit. Or maybe the designer has four different flowers in your kit but for this page you wanted a pink flower because you used the blue background paper and they only made yellow, blue, green, and black flowers for…

Let's be honest if you know me at all you know I love all things shiny and glittery.

So FINALLY here I am to show you how to do this and share what I learned to make you a pro in a flash!

So Day 2 did not have any mind blowing moments but, since all the excitement had soaked in I was able to be a little bit less "ahhhh" and a little bit more "ooh" or maybe I just added in "ooh amongst the draw dropping! You know like a pro! Although I won't lie it began to feel a little sad, as I wandered back through places I realized I was both in heaven and hell. I was in the biggest scrapbook store IN THE WORLD and my burning itching money was worthless! I could look and touch but I…
