Travel Journal

I created this travel journal for my daughter before she left for a 3 week trip to Europe this past summer with People to People Student Ambassadors. I used 6 x 9 manila envelopes as the base of the album so that she would have an envelope to stash memorabilia in each day of her trip. The paper is Vintage Travel made by Close To My Heart and I used various other embellishments. I had it spiral bound at my local OfficeMax.

Here are a couple pictures of my daughter and the group she was travelling with. According to her it was an "amazing" trip and was worth all the hard work to get her there...

It's begining to look alot like Christmas...

Ok... so maybe it's just starting to look/feel like Winter... we had our first sub-zero day of the season yesterday... today is an improvement... I believe it was 16 degrees out when I left work this morning... it's supposed to stay in the 20's most of the day with lots of wind and snow...

Matchbox mini ATC album

I've been having a blast making these out of my scraps!! I've included the template and the matchbox will hold 3.5 x 2.5 ATC cards... You can make the box from 1 sheet of 8.5 x 11 cardstock and decorate with your scraps!!! This picture is of FOUR of the matchboxes stacked... Aren't they just FUN!!

Click on the template picture for a bigger photo... Feel free to use the template on your own projects, share with your friends, but please don't sell the template...

Art Journal

I found these cool Mead comp books at OfficeMax... the top half of the sheet is quad ruled and the bottom half is lined. Perfect for an Art Journal... I've been saving it but came across this incredibly awesome paper by Elsie Flannigan and couldn't resist using it to create this Art Journal... now... I just need to come up with some cool projects for the INSIDE!!!

Monogram Ornaments

Another cool idea from Ali Edward's Blog Monogram Christmas ornaments. I made these for my Brother Korey & his Fiance' Esther they are getting married on New Year's Eve. I used American Crafts Rub-on letters, Bazzill Rub-ons and Rhinestones and 2007 ribbon from Ribbon Trends... I picked up the heart shaped glass ornaments at Michaels...

Another Christmas Project

I made this cute advent calendar in my class at Big Picture Scrapbooking and just think it's adorable... I used a line of BoBunny Christmas Papers with coordinating stickers, some round tags and velcro dots along with a document frame I picked up at Wal-Mart. I attached the spare number tags to the back of the frame using velcro dots...

Only 33 more days until Christmas!!

Hope everyone has a feastive Thanksgiving! - Alicia P.

Ok... so I've jumped on the Christmas bandwagon and have started on my Christmas gifts. Here is the Christmas planner I made this weekend to help me keep everything organized:

The paper is Hollydays from CTMH... The font is a Sizzix die cut and the holly leaves are a Quikutz die cut. The ribbon is from Michaels.

It's begining to look alot like Christmas...
