How to: Pocket Page Collages // Gray Florals

Have you ever wanted to use all of the photos you took at a birthday party, a get together, or on a vacation? Today I am sharing with you simple tips on how you can include several photos of lesser importance on one page. Photo collages are an easy way to accomplish this. I also show you how to balance out the other side with a simpler layout design. Let's dive right in! I find that I always tend to do page collages when it comes to vacations. We take photos of so many things while on trips that don't have a lot of importance other than we saw it on the trip. This page is when we went to the zoo during our Pittsburgh Trip! I loved taking photos of all of the animals, but didn't want to include every single one of them. This is a great way to include some favorite without taking up too much room in the album. I go through this in more detail during the video. Enjoy! Some key takeaways from this project is to keep it simple. Photo collages can some times be ve

Do you decorate your envelopes?

Hi everyone, Sandy here for a fun and very cute project that I did with my new Cute Critter stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs. So for todays project, I wanted to do some coloring and I knew that these stamps would be great. But, I didn't want to do a card or just do some stamp coloring, I wanted to do something different. So i ull out a couple of plain envelopes and thought how cute would these images be on envelopes. I never decorated envelopes before but let me tell you, if you want to do something crafty that is quick and fun, grab some envelopes, stamps, pencils and get at it! I will be making more!   So here are 3 that I did for today: Here are the fronts of all the cards  For this one, I hung the monkey from the flap. This one, I stamped the doggie in the corner And for this one, I stamped half the image on the flap. Here is a peek at my hop cards also!  If you haven't yet, check out our current blog hop too for a chance to win a coo

You Arrrrrgh Awesome!

Hi everyone, Sandy here for a fun and very cute card folds that I did using the June's Flavor of the Month Card Kit. I am still going strong with this kit and can't wait until Saturday when we get to show you July's kit. These kits really does have everything you need, just add adhesive!   So here are the 2 cards completed, all embellished with Flavor of the Month Card Kits including papers, stickers, die cuts, and stamps. I am loving the stamp sets that are in the kits. I made this card using images that the kiddos colored when on vacation with some gel pens.  Stamping out images and having them ready to color is a great way to be crafty when you are not home. These are some that I did with the kids on vacation. I have also done some when I am waiting during baseball practice for my son! Did I mention how much I love working with these kits?!?!?!

Hi everyone, Sandy here with my hop cards. You should have hopped over from Stacy . I had a blast with these stamps. When I choose a set, I look for versatility. How many different ways can I use this stamp set? When you look at the set, you see the light bulbs first. So not having anything like this in my stash, I thought this would be perfect for some encouragement cards. I did some masking to get multiple bulbs and then stamped the s
