Crate Paper Fifth Grade Mini

It's hard to believe that my baby is in fifth grade. Time is flying by so quickly. He will be in middle school next year. Ack!

I decided to create a little mini album to document this year. I started off with lots of pictures of the first day of school and will be adding photos of special events that happen all year. I decided to use the CP Maggie Holmes' line for this project. I think it worked great!

I love the little clipboard album. And the polka dot vellum is my favorite, so I started off with that.

 The format I decided to use is pretty simple. I created one page that was a label and the next was the photo that goes along with it.

As I said, I'll be adding to this as we go through the year. Now that the Flea Market line is available, I'll be adding bits and pieces of that as well. They coordinate so perfectly.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day. :)

My Favorite Things Stamps

I was really excited when I was asked to play with some My Favorite Things stamps and dies. I've admired them for a while. The combination of Dynamics Dies and the stamps are awesome. Laina sent me sets from the September release. They are so cute - perfect for my Back to School week for Project Life.

They were perfect for Back to School, but are super versatile, too. I will definitely be pulling these out again and again.

On this card I added lots of stamps and the Border It- Numbers Die. I love how easily these dies cut through my cardstock. It was like butter!

 I used several other Dienamics, too. Here, I cut the card from the 3X4 Notebook Paper die and stamped the lines onto it. I added lots of accents using the Accent It- School Days dies.
Love this apple! Isn't it cute??
Oh, and in case you are wondering, the PL cards come from the Seasons kit as well as a set of school themed cards I purchased at Studio Calico.

I decided to make a fun card for my little student, too. I thought this would be a good one to tuck into his lunch box or leave at the kitchen table after he aces a test. :)

 Well, that's it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to check out My Favorite Things!

Gossamer Blue October

Gossamer Blue's October kits are now up for sale! I love the colors and combinations that Lori put together this month. The kits are packed with Crate, Glitz, Amy Tangerine, Elle's Studio and Pebbles goodies. The exclusives gorgeous! Seriously, my favorite day of the month is when my kits arrive. :)
Right now, the main kit and Life's Pages kits are sold out. But, there are plenty of add-ons available. The LP add on is awesome.

So, here are the spreads that I created using the kits.

I had a lot of fun working with the kits this month. I'll be finishing up my Summer PL album soon and am going to get started on my fall one. I love doing a 6 by 8 format. :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
