I recently did a swap with a friend and one of the things that she requested made was a key chain with pictures of her family. She even gave me a link so that I knew how to make it, which was a good thing. It made things really simple and didnt give me a chance to over think on what I was making like I usually tend to do,lol. I am not the best at explaining how to do things so its best just to go Here to get instructions. I left a spot for when her son is born so that she can add his picture to the key chain.
I only got 5 pages done with my first kit , but I really enjoyed doing the challenge. I think next time I put a kit together I will pick papers that go together better so it will be easier to work with. This is also my first time using the strips in my layouts, I think I did pretty good and it sure saves on paper. If you want to check out this challenge you can find it HERE
I have had some card candy laying around for a long time from a swap that I was in. I have been wanting to use them up and get them out of my way so I finally sat down and made some cards. They went really fast and were super easy to throw together and I am very happy with how they all turned out.
I really want to start Project Life but I have a lot of older photos
to get scrapped. So I am challenging myself to get all those pictures
scrapped before I can start Project Life. If I dont have it done by
around the middle to the end of July I am still going to start PO just
because I dont want to wait any longer lol. Challenging myself like that
must be working because I am getting a lot of pages done, they are
pretty simple but I also didnt stress over them like I usually do so I
feel much happier about doing them.
I love to craft and I am lucky enough to have a wonderful husband who completely supports my crafting hobby. He was the one who got me into crafting about 4years ago and I am so thankful that he did. Although my almost 16 year old son dosent craft with me, he is always telling people about my crafting. I am thankful everyday for my family and the fact that they support what makes me happy.
