What can I do with the Project Life Envelopes

Happy Saturday!

Just two more videos until I'm all caught up on those!  Janet Wakeland again with Project Life Envelopes.  I LOVE these envelopes.  I used them with my Elf on the Shelf album o keep some of the notes Trixie left us.  I have also used the larger ones in my Disneyworld album to hold all the badges, pins, maps etc that are collected every holiday.  Everything is kept in one place - LOVE that!

Has anyone thought of putting their FRAMLEITS in these envelopes and inside a binder so they are all in one place and kept together???  I'm all over THAT one!

I'm always looking for new members to join my Project Life Club.  If you're interested (and live in Edmonton!) drop me a line!

Have a stampy Saturday!

DIY Project Life Cards

Happy Friday!

More Project Life.  Janet Wakeland shows us how to use some old "extras" to make her own Project Life cards.  Use what you've got!  I believe the mini album she is using is still available in the Clearance Rack.  Check it in my store here

Have a stampy day :)

Watercolor Shadows and Highlights Technique

Happy Monday!!!

Yes - FINALLY - I'm posting!!  Sorry - I have SO not been "into" blogging lately!  Kinda obvious, huh?  Don't worry - it doesn't mean I'm quitting stamping or anything, just taking a hiatus from blogging.  I've said it before and I'll say it again - it is VERY time consuming and to be honest, I just haven't wanted to take the time to do it!  I've had more important things on my plate the last few weeks - namely ME!  Yup - I'm on yet another healthy living journey!  You know what takes more time than blogging?  Living healthy! *lol*  It all started a few weeks ago when I bought a Fitbit.  Everyone I know has one and with the warmer weather I was motivated to starting moving more so I bought one hoping it would spur me on.  Well HAS IT EVER!  Don't know what a Fitbit is?  In a nutshell it's a stupidly expensive pedometer *lol*.  It's a wrist band you wear (but I believe you can get clip on ones too) that counts your steps, calories burned, minutes of active movement, flights of stairs, has a stop watch and, depending on which one you get, measures your heart rate.  Well … suffice it say I have been ADDICTED to this darned thing!  It's ALL about getting at least 10,000 steps in every day and burning at least 2,000 calories.  That takes over an hour of walking every morning.  Add to that the research for recipes for "clean eating" buying it, prepping it, cooking it … and of course the making an alternative the REST of the family will eat and I have been busy from the second I wake up until the second I go to bed …. and I'm loving it!  So excuse the lack of original posts … I'm on a mission!  For the next few days I have some technique videos to share and I promise I'm going to do my very best to post some of my EASTER projects (ya, ya … I know!) … of course I DO have 2 classes this week, a coffee date and a trip to the passport office to squeeze in so bear with me!

Today I have a quick 2 minute video on Watercoloring.  Everyone loves this technique but we just don't do it enough.  It takes a little practice but it's FUN!  Might give it a go myself later … you know … in all that spare time I have around midnight *lol*

Hope you are all well - thanks for coming back to see that I'm still alive!

Have a super stampy day My Friends!

National Scrapbooking Day :)

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

Scrapbooking.  Does anyone do "traditional" scrapbooking any more?  I'm sure some do.  I don't.  Never have.  Never will.  I tried the digital version a few times.  It was ok.  You know what my REAL love is though, right?  Yup.  Project Life.  Quick, easy, inexpensive and just gets it done … but nicer than a traditional photo album.   I love this video.  Check it out.

*lol*  Can you relate??  I can.  The answer to your photo problems truly is Project Life.  Want to check it out?  Join my club … or come to a class to try it and see aha I'm talking about.  Here is the info about my club … just ignore the "Starting Month February" part.  The club is now a "rolling" club - you can join anytime.  With the new catalogue coming out in June there are LOTS of PRoject Life items to choose from.  Join now to scoop the current items at 50% off (most of them, anyway!) then in June scoop the new ones.  GREAT new items for baby albums starting June 2nd!

That's it for today.  Gunna spend the day biking with the kids, walking the dog and prepping healthy meals and snacks (yes, on another health kick *lol*).  Whatever you get up to, have a stampy day!

Our Favorite 2015 Retiring Products

Happy Friday!

Been busy as all stink the last few days trying to get caught up on a few things … one of which is post on my blog! *lol*

A quick video today highlighting a number of retiring products.  Stamp sets are guaranteed to be available until May 26th but everything else is "while supplies last".  Check the link over on the right hand side to see what you want and get in touch sooner rather than later.  Every year people are disappointed they didn't get that one "something" they had their eye on!

Right!  I'm off to start my stampy day!
