Mini Album//31 minutes for 31 days


Hi Everyone! Thank you for coming by. Grab a cuppa and get ready to read something exciting! Kellie from Kellie Stamps and I are getting together to make October an even better month than it already is! We are getting together to help you get a mini album done in 31 days, with just 31 minutes or less per day! Your mini album can take on any form you want. Both Kellie and I are doing 4×4 albums. I think that I will make one of my personalized albums just for this project!

Kellie and I are both very passionate about crafting and documenting our lives. We both love to scrapbook and both do Project Life® too. But, we both have a lot going on in our lives other than crafting; both being Mom’s, wife’s, business owners and so much more. So…when we were talking the other day, we came up with the idea of dedicating 30 minutes or so to ourselves just to make a fun mini album and get it done in a month. And #30minsfor31days was born!

There is not a theme to this, just make a mini (any size or shape) that you want. Favorite photos, a travel album, photos you have laying around, #fromwhereistand photos, coffee photos…whatever you want!

The point is to make time each day in October for yourself…just 15-30 minutes and make something pretty. Something you love. The best part, at the end of the month you have a mini album to treasure forever! We hope that you will spend October with us making a mini album. Be sure to tag us and use the hashtag #31minsfor31days on your Social Media so we can see your creations!



New Release Thursday//September Release


New Release-September 2015

Happy Thursday Everyone! I am having some technical issues with my Newsletter, so I am sending this as a blog post in the meantime. It is the 3rd Thursday of the month and that means that I have some new releases for you! My next newsletter (Beginning of October), will have some awesome inspiration from the Design Team.

Let’s get started with “Crisp Air“. This is a fun fall set made from maple wood veneer and several different acrylics. Next up is “Harvest“. This is the last set of the seasons sets (Frozen, Bloom and Solstice) for 2015. I hope that you all have enjoyed this series of sets as much as I enjoyed creating them! Fall is my personal favorite season, so I can’t wait to go on some adventures and use these myself!

I have decided to add some simple shapes each month to coordinate with that months releases. This month, I have “Giant Ampersands” and several sets of Twinkling Stars and Confetii stars. I am hoping that you all will love these add ons!

Are you a book lover? So am I! I can’t believe it has taken me so long to come out with a book set! This set, “Eat, Sleep, Read” is full of fun bits and pieces for every book lover! If you love the “Star Rating”, be sure to grab a set of extras (“Rate It!“) to go with your “Eat, Sleep, Read” set! Think of all of the possibilities of what you could rate beyond books!

And last but not least, my wood veneer only set and add on! “Yes, No, Maybe” is a set of wood veneer half circles, perfect to staple to the edge of a photo, pocket card, or scrapbook layout.Don’t forget to grab the set and the add on (“Hell No and Hell Yes”) to get all of the half circles!
