Get your own list of recycled stuff you can use, and as always, share with me what you are doing!!!
Hello my favorite creative people!!! Long time, no blog posts!!! Well, that is about to change!!! Much going on in the Jeff’s house in the past 6 months, more life changing than anything! But that is for another post!!!!!
Right now, it is THAT time, time to look at our calendars!!! With the Covid virus, your list might be a bit different than it normally is! You might have more cards to make and send out, or gifts to get started on that might save you some time!!! I will have a few things you can think about creating ahead of time at the end of the post!
As you look at your list, what needs to get done soon? What will take the most time IN creating? Can you handle more than one project at a time, or can you do more than one? Use up what you have at home, don’t spend unless you have to!!! Even then, try to shop online!!! Join me this week in a fun birthday idea with cards!!!
I’m not sure about you guys, but wow, I can’t believe it is December already! I’m not sure how it all happened, but here we go, almost in to a new year! This post is a bit of everything – from planning to reflecting…of course “Memories in Tyme” style!
If you celebrate Thanksgiving, what did you think of the date this year? I don’t remember when it was this late in the month, and not sure I like it being this close to Christmas!!! Yet this year, was more of a special year, first time around my family in 12 years!!! Challenge or two to document this years events:
If you are one of those “planner folks” – grab your planner and sit down and lets get to work! If you aren’t – get whatever YOU like to plan your life with and lets get started!
Look at events, holidays, special times, plan out date nights, visits – things in YOUR life that you want to enjoy! Remember life is too short, spend it with people who make you want to do better in your life, and not those who bring you down by their very presence!
I have made cards for 29 years now! I remember my first project, my daughter’s birth announcements made out of cardstock and a Disney stamp! How ironic she loves Disney stuff – even now! From that first project until right now – I love making cards!
All of my cards I make are one of a kind! A lot of times I can’t create the same thing twice even IF I use the same supplies on both projects! Each order will come with a free gift as well!
Cards are sold as follows:
We have different themes available – pick what you want and need! All cards are one of a kind, no two are alike for the most part! I try to do each one a little bit different if I can, by placement or details! If you are looking at more custom work, let me know and we will come up with a good price!
Cards you have to choose from:
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! Some of them have 4 cards, and others might only have 1 or 2 left over! If you are looking for something all the same design, make sure you get on my list this year! Designing starting soon, and first come first serve!
We also have tags ready to go if you want to grab a few now! You can always come back for more if you need to! The more you buy this season, the more you will save!!! If you want more customized designs, let me know and I can get with you on prices!!!
Yes, I am a Merry Christmas kind of gal, but we can do Seasons Greetings if you want! Let me know when you place your order! If you have a design you like, but want it tweaked a bit, we can do that as well! If you have your own paper that you want me to use, let me know and your price will be cheaper! If you are ready to learn how, we will have a class and designs added soon that you can follow! Buy your own style of stuff to work with, and basic directions from me, and your cards will be one of a kind just like mine! If you simply love the idea itself and want to recreate it yourself, feel free!
If you are ready to order – send a message to email@example.com with a CC to firstname.lastname@example.org to get started! For the subject line, put HANDMADE CHRISTMAS CARDS/TAGS (yes, in bold letters) so it is easier for me to see!
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!
