My Year in Disney – An Album Review

myyearindisneyI’m really feeling super Disney lately (I know that’s not much of a difference from usual is it?) There were a couple of photo orders that arrived in my mailbox and they were filled with Disney photos.

As I continue documenting my year(s) in Disney and all of my magical adventures I realized that not everyone has been with me since the start of this project so I thought before I pressed on I would put together a video reviewing my album as it is today. Take a look:

Latte Love – Playing With New Products

IMG_1370Do you ever feel a product was made specifically for you? That you had to have it because you have a bazillion projects in mind for it?

That is exactly how I felt about the Tim Holtz coffee cup die. I mean you know I love my coffee so I had to have this die to add a bit of coffee love to projects and pages and cards and gifts.

When my package from arrived I was itching to bust out my new die and create! And create I did – I have tons of photos with me holding a coffee cup so I picked a recent one and just played.

IMG_1372Along with the Tim Holtz die I picked up some items from Prima’s Coffee Break line. I grabbed the 6×6 paper pad and cork stickers.

It was fun playing with these items. Creating a page, being playful, adding ink and coffee stains and just making a cute layout.

There isn’t any journaling, there doesn’t need to be the story is in the photos and the papers and the embellishments – PLUS I’ve created so many pages about my love of coffee so not all of them need to be filled with words.

IMG_1374I have so many ideas for ways to use these cool items. I have absolutely no doubt that you will be seeing this die over and over and over again!

What is your favorite product? Do you have a new recent favorite? What would you like to see me create with this new die?

LOAD215 – Day 25 – Caught

IMG_1334Recording conversations is a fun way to add journaling to a page. I had so much fun creating this layout from Christmas, I have been wanting to use this very funny photo of Tamy but I just couldn’t figure out a way to get it documented until I heard today’s prompt.

LOAD215 – Day 24 – POP!

Circle of FriendsAfter a late night watching the Oscars last night I just couldn’t talk myself into creating a paper layout this morning – so I bring you…. a digi layout!

I don’t create a lot of digi layouts, it’s not really my area of expertise but I always enjoy the way they turn out when I do create them.

Take a look at today’s video for a little bit more:
