Then & Now -WOW

Hi this is Jenifer here with you today.  When thinking about this months "Time" theme all I could think about is how fast my children are growing.  That is how my Then & Now layout came about.
After looking at this video I knew that the water splatter technique was something that I needed to try, using pastel blue and then some of the glitter blue over the top.
 Using the same pastel blue, Melt-It and ultra bright white I created the flower centers.  I used a lovely silver damask vellum from Ruby Rock-It to anchor my layers.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at project today :)

Tuesday Tutorial/Crafting with Kids/Card

Hi this is Jenifer here with you today to share my Kids Craft tutorial with you :)  I have a 12 year old girl in my house and she is very into the whole rainbow loom thing and we have rubber bands and bracelets all over the house by the hundreds.  She has way to many to wear so she has started giving them away to anyone who asks about them.  Together we put together this card so that on the inside her bracelets can be nicely displayed and so that her friends get a nice hand made card as well.

Using the fun Bella Fundamental Cards as our base we simply cut a 2"x3" rectangle in the center of the inside back of the card, making sure to leave the bottom intact.

This is what it looks like when cut out.

I think it could hold a couple more bracelets but we thought 3 looked pretty good without crowding.
We then used our Fiskars large Corner rounder to round out all of our sharp edges and softening the feel of the card.

She decorated the cover with the Birthday Die Cut pack, a doily and a fun piece of May Arts ribbon and she was good to go.  I am sure there will be a.lot more bracelet cards in her future.
Thank you so much for looking at my project today,

Beyond the Page Waterfall Mini-Ruby Rock-It

Hi Ruby Rock-It fans!!  For my Beyond the page today I made this super fun Waterfall Mini, I found the tutorial here.  The tutorial was fantastic and very easy to follow.  Once I had the main album put together it was easy to put all of the elements and pictures together.

Here is my cover.  I used a fun piece of cotton ribbon and adhered it to the spine, this makes it almost look like a book.

I have some journaling cards in the pocket, I am going to have each one of the kids write down their favorite part of the trip.
I had the perfect pictures I wanted to highlight from a fun camping trip we went on last year.  This mini was the perfect thing to showcase our time together.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and I would love to see your waterfall mini if you create one :)

Hello Summer Desktop Mini-May Arts/Simple Stories/Xyron

Welcome to Day 3 of the May Arts/Simple Stories/Xyron blog hop, haven't the projects just been wonderful so far :)  For my project I purchased this fun wood desktop clip board that I thought would be fun to put the Good Day Sunshine cards on and flip and change them out depending on my mood at work.

I tried to keep the cards simple and when the summer is over they can easily be transitioned into a Project life spread.  Yeah Hooo:)

For this one I have a fun yellow Tulle bow on the sunshine, that in itself will put you in a good mood :)
Thanks so much for stopping by make sure you check everyone else out here is the list if you need it.

My Girl- Curtsey Boutique

Today we have a gorgeous layout from Jenifer Cowles to share with you.  Jenifer shared with us some thoughts about this layout:

"I love the way this layout came together.  It was a fast one only took about 30 minutes which is super fast for me, I have been known to spend an entire weekend on a layout to get it just right.  After the mist dried I went to work and my little focal cluster came together beautifully."

We couldn't agree more.  This layout is perfection!

Summer mini-ThermOWeb/Echo Park

Thank you so much for joining me today.  I absolutely loved the Summer Bliss pack I received from Echo Park and knew that I wanted to make this fun line into its own little mini album.  After looking through Pinterest I found this Waterfall Folio Tutorial and went to work.
 Here is the fun cover.  We have some trips planned and this will be a perfect place to house some of the extra pictures.  I use a lot of Foam Squares to give my projects added dimension.  I made this fun little tassel banner by wrapping some twine around a fork and tieing it off and looping a wire through the centers, some zots keep the bows in place.

For the cascading waterfall I used the Icraft 1/2" tape, I made this project come together effortlessly.
 A fun pocket on the left to hold some cute cards to make notes and journal on.  How cute are these little flip-flop charms that I have had in my stash for years, they are perfect for this project.

Thank you so much for taking a look at my fun mini album today, I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.
