3D Thursday - Travel Journal Mini Book

Happy Thursday, friends!!

On the Timeless Twine Creative Crew, we have set challenges for each day of the month.  On each of my days, I try my very best to meet each challenge using Pocket Scrapbooking.  Well, today is 3D Thursday.

If you pocket scrapbook, you can understand why I would panic a little bit about that! :)  
Truth be told, I almost caved and created a cute little critter on my Silhouette for Easter.  BUT...then I put my big girl panties on and decided that I was going to make this work!  I enjoy a challenge.

So, I went to work.

I chose 3 4x6 themed cards from the Sn@p "Travel" collection that I had laying around just waiting for me to use and folded them in half making 6 mini book pages.  Instead of using staples to put the pages together, I took some of the super cute Timeless Twine to TIE them together!  I chose Chocolate Chip and Olive Green twine - it's darling with these cards!

Here's the full spread:

And a few pages of the mini book:

Lots of spots for journaling things that I don't necessarily want to share with the public.

Like perhaps locking my daughter in the rental car after I had put her in her car seat.  Yeah.....mother of the year moment!!  We were still at the rental car place and got her out quick.  Shout out to Budget rental cars!!

I also found this great little travel agenda card that I used the Bella Creationz PlanNerd stamp set to cute it up a bit.  I use these stamps on everything.  Seriously.  They're SO versatile!!!!

Until next time, friends!

Because She's Happy - Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Whoa - 2 posts in 2 days?!  I am pretty sure that's a new record for me. :)

It's my turn again up on the Timeless Twine blog with a {HAPPY} Hump Day project.

What makes me {HAPPY}? My little girl so what better way to celebrate that than to share a spread with you that I created for her 4 year old birthday pictures.

I wanted to keep this LO very simple because I wanted the pictures to do most of the talking.

I LOVE this "Because She's Happy" card because of how the "happy" border around 2 of the edges turned out.  These PlanNerd stamps are PERFECT for adding borders!!

I used the "Happy Days" stamps to make the "happy" border around the "Because She's Happy" card, and the PlanNerd stamps for the hearts on the "Love" card.  I also used "Bubblegum Pink" twine for an extra complimentary pop of color.

What makes you {HAPPY}?  I'd love to know!!

Happy St Patrick's Day Cards

Hi friends!!

Since St. Patrick's Day is coming up next week, and we've got a dinner that we're attending on Sunday (thus the "wrong" date on the card...), I thought I'd get a jump start and make a few cards for when I get my pics from the party printed. :)

Ignore the ugly purple post it.  Using it as a place holder so I remember to put a picture right there on the card!

I LOVE the Green Beer card.  It makes me giggle and shows how versatile these stamps sets from Bella Creationz really are!  This specific stamp is the PlanNerd Stamp and you can find it here!

I also used Timeless Twine in Lemonade Yellow for a little extra color, and these FUN pocket scrapbooking Days of the Week journaling cards.

Enjoy!! :)
