There is nothing worse than getting in the middle of a project and you do not have enough paper to do what you want! I have been in the middle of something and I need just a little bit more cardstock of a certain color, and there is none left! That is NOT going to happen, not on the PERFECT project!!!
I don’t want to use a whole piece of cardstock if I am only needing a small piece! This is why I save all of my scraps of paper, because there will be that one time, I have the perfect scrap for the project! Besides, you can’t see the back side of a sheet of paper!!!!!!
With this particular set of cards, I needed a bit more black for a basket! I will share the finished project on another post, but they really are turning out cute! Anyway, I knew I needed a bit more of the black, but didn’t have anymore of this color! So, I cut the inside of the back sheet of cardstock and got enough paper to do the baskets and heart punch pieces I needed!
I will also have another cost saving tip when I share the card with you! Hopefully that will be in tomorrow’s post! I hope this will help you save the perfect project, and a bit of money while you are at it!!!
We have some Christmas cards ready to go for anyone who is ready to start that project! The more you purchase, the more we will discount for you!

Altered notebooks are a lot of fun to do, and great for various things! Awesome to customize to anyone getting one! Add a bookmark, or a few corner bookmarks, and it makes the entire collection PERFECT!!!
With school being right now, you will see a lot of composition notebooks going on clearance! Watch for them, you can pick them up for cheap once they go on clearance! Pick up a bunch instead of spending at least $1, then you can use them as you need to!
The notebooks above were specially made! My niece, before she died…..asked me to make 2 notebooks, one for her, and one for her best friend Jessie, who has epilepsy! She wanted them alike but different! Being diagnosed with epilepsy almost a year ago, makes me appreciate the color that much more! She simply wanted a place for Jessie to put down her thoughts!
For a notebook like this, you will need:
If you search for altered notebooks, you will find a bunch of ideas, as well as the directions if you need them! Share what you have made with us! I would love to see what others do with their creations!
Hello everyone! Today is Labor Day, one of those days off work for me, being able to spend some time creating is nice for me! Reflecting on what I used to do in the past when I was a child, and thinking about how much it has all changed the past 10 years or so!
Long time, no see!!! I have needed to take a bit of a break from blogging, and simply create instead! Right now, I have created some really amazing cards I can’t wait to share with you! We will cover it all, from ideas to shopping places and tips, all things paper craft related!!! For now, let’s get started in looking at what is coming up in your life!!!
How do you organize your life? Do you have a planner you use, an app on your tablet or phone, Outlook calendar (or similar), or just plain pen/pencil, paper, and a calendar? Please share any of your favorite organizing tips, apps, tricks, etc. that you can think of! Let’s get ‘er done!!!
After the year I have had with my health, I have learned a lot! I almost died twice, that sobers a person, let me tell you! It has taken me a bit of time to process, let go of things, and learn to be Lynda again! Life is too short otherwise! I am planning a quote album! Watch for a post soon!
I’ve known Kris since high school – we never hung out or anything, but I knew who she was! Little did I know what she was going through behind the scenes – away from school! Fast forward to Facebook – LOL but a bunch of us from high school are friends! Really nice way to connect with past friends, and make new one’s as well!
I reached out to Kris – she had posted something on Facebook… I was going through a really hard time with a few things…and needed help! Something told me she was the person I needed! She had a 21 Day Challenge she was starting, so she “gifted” it to me! It came at the PERFECT time, let me tell you!
Kris’ challenge – well, it truly has done a LOT for me personally…
This video was made a while ago – posted on my old website! I don’t care if you are in a rut, or just wanting to change a few things in your life…next time she has a workshop, you should take it! It is WELL worth the price!
Kris – thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me to find myself! Only this time, I’m coming back better and stronger! I refuse to let anyone walk all over me again! I am thankful for the things I have dealt with in life, and the mended relationships I have found because I HAVE FOUND PEACE! Love you bunches my friend – here’s to OUR futures!
After I get all the graphics and things done – the name will officially change to “Lynda Jeffs Designs” – LJD for short! I will be posting specials I find to save you money – give you cost savings tips along the way to help you create…but not spend a FORTUNE! Everything I do will be in a beginner – expert format, learning what you need to, or have time for – at your own convenience! I will also have handmade paper crafts for sale – or to customize if you want! Down the line, I might even have a few graphics for you to print out and use – but that is just in the planning stages at the moment!
Life is taking me in directions I never planned on…..you just go with the punches so to speak….. The ‘name” Memories in Tyme has been with me so long now, that I had a really hard time struggling with changing it. But realized recently – it’s just a name….. Like a few other things in my past, in order to move forward, those changes need to be made, and a name is a name….and I am FINALLY putting MY name – on MY talents!
So, like normal – a few challenges for you to choose from – please comment and let me know what you end up doing! I would love to hear your stories!
Watch for the changes coming the next few months – slowly, one by one…post by post! I am excited to look forward, and not behind! I hope you will join me in my next journey – as you have watched the past journey! I can’t wait to share with you some of the fun things I have made recently!
Hello everyone, it’s that time again!!! I am doing things a bit different for myself personally – and hopefully this challenge will actually help me get more done both business wise, and personally! Now, I will be honest with you – I am technology challenged, but am researching the best ways to organize my smart phone, my tablet and my computer together – in order to get more done in life! Right now – I have a notebook – and use it I will until I figure all of that little stuff out!!!! (If you have any good apps you use for this – please make sure you send me a message here!!!)
So, lets get started – grab your calendar, tablet, smart phone, sheet of paper and a pen/pencil – whatever you need to organize yourself and lets do this!!!
My list –
As you do look at your calendar, have a sheet for each of your events! This way – as you get more details, you can start to write things down on the sheet!!! For me personally, I have decided I can only go forward with the items I want to make – and do what needs to be done coming up – getting the rest of the stuff done as I can! That means – this month might be rather fun where posts are concerned for you guys – a bit of everything for sure!

I have been working on organizing my craft space, and stumbled upon this company that is helping me to make a bit of money AND organize the spaces in my home, including my craft space!!! They have key pieces I can purchase to add to the other pieces I have made – the recycled shoe boxes, the shipping boxes, and my Project Life boxes (blog post to follow) to start with! Each piece I purchase will go with the pieces I have made, and will help to keep myself organized and able to get more done in the long run (or so I hope)!!! The best thing I like is being able to customize the pieces I purchase, with the spaces I need to organize!!!
I am excited for the end result – because I truly am getting more done right now by organizing as I have! As I organize one thing – I move things around, or decide if I truly am going to use something again. I am in the middle of organizing/reorganizing my stamps back into something I used to do – and made more sense! I might just get even MORE done now that I am doing this! Next up – finding a key piece of furniture that I can re-purpose (a wardrobe) in order to put all of my shoe boxes, shipping boxes, and containers I purchase into one place, as well as 2 bookcases to put my books and things on, with a table on for my work space!!! Between those 2 pieces, I think I can truly start to get a lot of things done crafting wise! Now I just need to figure out how to manage my time, LOL!!!
