Feeling Blessed? We have the project for you!

Project Kit Update: The kit sold out in only 2 days and we have had requests for a reorder. If there is enough interest, we will do a reorder. Just send us an email and let us know that you would like a kit. If we have enough interest by Sept. 5, we will reorder!

Our September Project Kit is all about documenting the things you are grateful for. I loved putting my journal/album together and really enjoyed reflecting on my blessings.

We are making it easy on you and including everything you need to complete this album: the double-sided patterned paper, the tabbed album, the alphabet stickers, the journaling stickers and journaling cards.

We just know that you are going to LOVE this kit.

Here is the full kit. You can see the full list on contents and purchase it here.

Here are a few of my pages.

First, the cover. It was so fun to layer the paper, 7 Gypsies stickers, and alpha stickers. I decided to divide my journal into 5 categories: family, friends, faiths, home and opportunities. The tabs on the album made this division so easy.

A few inside pages. I just combined pictures with journaling to documents my feeling about the things I am thankful for.

Some More Peeks at the Halloween Kit!

I’ve had some fun this week playing with our upcoming Special Edition Halloween Kit. I’ve decided that I’m going to do 1 layout for each of my kids on Halloween each year. All of the Halloween layouts will go in an 8 X 8 album that we will pull out each year as part of our Halloween decor.

Here is what I put together with last year’s pictures:

This had been such a fun kit to play with and there is even more product on it’s way to us! I am looking forward to making some Halloween card and even more layouts with the pictures we take this year.

For information on reserving your Halloween kit and the products details, check out THIS BLOG.
