Just for Fun - More ideas!

WOW is all we could say while checking out the great work from all of you with our latest kit! We just had to start sharing some of these great entries with you!

Charlene Woods

"I loved this kit as soon as I saw it! I just adopted two boys (2 and
3 years old) and have one teenage daughter, and two other boys (8 and 9).
My nine year old has Down Syndrome and the two boys we adopted have speech
problems, and learning disabilities. So, when I saw the quirky titles and
stickers (loud, leave it all behind, embrace the chaos) I just had to have
it! The only thing I added out of my own stash was the
yellow,flocked,flowery material (used as pockets in two locations). I
incorporated an envelope or pocket on every monthly page and intend to use them
for journaling prompts on note cards as they occur! Any flat memorabilia
can be kept in the envelopes as well.

You might get a chuckle out
of the fact that I assembled the WHOLE BOOK, and then realized all the
transparencies had protective plastic on them! So, I have actually
assembled my book TWICE!! OOOh me!!! "



Thanks for sharing~ And keep those ideas coming!

Project 365 - Getting the Shot

Check out Ana Cabrera's tips and projects for Project 365

"If you are anything like me... the biggest obstacle I have with keeping up my picture a day is remembering to bring my camera with me. Sure, I can get a last moment shot at home.. but there are plenty of moments out in the world that I want to capture.

So I started by creating this super simple reminder. I hang it on the door leading to the garage, that way... I can remember to grab my camera amidst all the chaos my three daughters can create trying to get out the door.



It took 2 min. I mounted the "Project 365" card onto a scrap piece of cardstock and used letter stickers from my stash. A little twine from the kitchen, and now I almost never leave without my camera!

The other issue I have is remembering all the little details from my week. I can hardly remember what I did 20 minutes ago! So made this little holder for my journaling cards. I just tuck it into my camera bag and I journal right in the moment. I also used one to create a little minibook of my "mama". She is a little camera shy, so I don't have nearly the pictures I should. This little book however holds some of her funny sayings, pearls of wisdom, and quirky quotes that we have come to love.


Making it is VERY easy.
I used a transparency sheet from the "Just for Fun" kit - but you could use patterned paper or cardstock of course.

Simply cut out your material using this pattern. Fold at the center lines, and close with brads, ribbon, decorative tape.. etc.

Now you have a cute little holder to tuck in some of those extra journaling cards and tri-folds





Finally... don't forget those CAMERA PHONE pics! When all else fails.. I always have my trusty camera phone. The images have gotten way better, but they will still print out itty bitty. Try printing them out as a contact sheet and cutting out your favorites from the week. "

Our very own Ana Cabrera is using the clear album sheets as inserts into her full-sized album.


She used letter stickers and "bling" from her stash to create this fun layout.

We loved the detail she added by adhering just a few pieces of bling to the patterned paper.



Ana also created this card with the strip that she cut off one edge when she created the layout.
