May Album: The Chipboard Wheel!

We just loved this chipboard wheel by Paper Trunk when we saw it at CHA. We knew we would have to include it in one of our kits and our May Kit is the lucky kit!

The blank wheel looks like this:

There are so may fun possibilities! You could make a mini album, interactive card, incorporate this onto a layout, make a chore chart or create a home decor item.

I decided to create a Father’s Day card/mini album. The kids loved drawing and writing messages to their dad. I alternated a picture of each of the kids with a message or drawing from them right next to the picture on the bottom layer. All you have to do is spin the top layer and see the cute kids and messages!


You can check out more pictures in the May Gallery!

Enjoy :)

April Photo Challenge

Starting this month, I thought that I’d give you a monthly photo challenge. It seems like challenges always give me the little extra push to get something done, so hopefully it will do the same for you!

The challenge: Photograph a collection. It could be something you collect (spoons, teacups, artwork, even scrapbook supplies!), a child’s collection, a collection of things you have grown in your garden, the collection of book or movies you have enjoyed so far this year, the list could go on!

The great thing about photographing a collection is that it shares a nice little slice of your life right now. Things are always changing and this a a way to preserve what something is like TODAY.

For this challenge I took a picture of my daughter’s desk. It is here that she stores her collection of her important things. I think it will be so fun to look back at this picture is 10, 20 , even 30 years and remember the things that are important to our 7 year old daughter right now.

If you want to take the challenge a step further, scrapbook the photo.

Here is a layout I did with my photo:

Products from this layout came from the April kit (all cardstock, patterned paper, rub-ons), the March kit (the Glitz Turquoise rhinestone frosting) and the alpha from the Unique U Project kit.

It you take the challenge, I’d love to see what you come up with! You can post your photo in our forums or post a link in the comments and I’ll check it out!
