5th Grade Camping Trip Mini Book


Zoey had a special camping trip with her classmates this past weekend and I printed up the photos right away and made her a little memory book using one of SEI's preservation albums. It worked perfectly for housing some 6 x 6 layouts (my photos were printed wallet size).


The letter stickers for the cover are by Amy Tangerine and I picked up a sticker sheet from October Afternoon (campfire themed) from my local scrapbook store Stamp This Scrap That as well as some fun camping themed papers.


I kept the pages pretty simple since I was using such a small layout and really, this being for Zoey...the pictures are what's most important.














I saved the journaling for the pages at the end.





It's been awhile since I've done a mini album...it was kind of fun! 

I'm so happy that Zoey had this opportunity and am glad that I did something with these photos right away so she can look back and recall this special time whenever she likes!

Hello Beautiful


I enjoyed some time in my craft room today. Zoey is home from school sick with a sore throat and just feeling crummy. I kept her home today since I get to be home today, hoping that it will mean that I won't have to miss work tomorrow if she rests up a bit here today.


I pulled out my small butterfly punch for the butterflies here, something I haven't done in awhile and then I machine stitched across them to make them stay put. Another thing I haven't done in awhile is hand-write my journaling. It was fun to feel a little free when creating this layout.


This photo of her is one of my favorites, taken just a week or so ago now. I love it.


It feels so good to be creating again!

Sharing my Little Birdhouse!


I created this adorable little birdhouse using papers from SEI awhile back (it's actually featured on their blog right now) and I'm so excited to post it here! It's just so sweet and makes me happy. It's no secret that I love pretty and cute little things, this little project was something that I was itching to do for awhile.


With spring here and my need to come up with a craft idea for SEI this was just the perfect choice!


For all of the supplies that I used be sure to check out SEI's blog here for a complete listing. Right now this little birdhouse is upstairs in the playroom with Zoey's dolls but I'm thinking it may have to make it's way downstairs for a bit too for some decorative fun...maybe on my kitchen hutch?


Happy spring crafting to you!
