Canvo Bullet Journal December Pages

I have recently started bullet journaling and am loving the new Canvo bullet journal from Catherine Pooler Designs.  Such a easy and fun way to keep track of different things. It's a lot of fun coming up with different layouts and things to keep track of!

One of the first pages I knew I wanted to start was a habit tracker.  Unfortunately I broke my ankle so some of the things don't work for this month but I'm loving being able to see what I actually do.

I also wanted to create a mood tracker.  I've been having a lot of ups and downs lately and wanted a way to keep track. Again, I made this before I broke my ankle so I don't feel it's a true view into how I'm feeling as most days I'm hurting and tired and just upset.

I'm loving the monthly and weekly layouts.  I like that I can go in on the weekly and write down what's going on and things that have happened.  It makes a great journal.

The weekly spreads came next. I decided to do a different theme for each week.  I am loving the week that we are on vacation. So far it's my favorite of all the pages I've done.

Here is week one.  I decided on snowflakes since it's usually snowing and chilly this time of year.  We did have a little snow but it warmed back up and all melted.

For week two I used penguins. I love penguins and just had to fit them into the canvo somehow.

Here is week three. This is the week we're leaving for vacation to Mexico so I just couldn't help but use bright colors and palm leaves.

And finally for week four I used the same stamps and design that I used for the monthly spread.  

I had a lot of fun making these and can't wait to share more as I create.  I hope you'll follow along and maybe even get inspired to start your own!

Merry Christmas

I am loving this tree stamp set from Fun Stamper's Journey.  I couldn't wait to start creating with it. I decided to stamp and die cut the tree and then attach it to the front of my card.

Once attached I cut around the die cut and created a shaped opening. I'm loving how it opens.  I even thought about making this my Christmas card but realized I just didn't have enough time to get them all done before I leave on vacation.

Baby Face

Hi everyone! So happy your here.  Can't wait to share this layout sketch with you today.  I had a lot of fun creating this fun layout using the sketch. Sketch~N~Scrap has some amazing sketches that are really fun to play along with.

The pictures I used are the second half from this layout HERE. I still can't believe how big this little guy is.  No more sleeping on the floor and covering his face with his blankie.  I so miss those days. This is not the best picture but the best I could do right now. 

Now it's your turn.  Head over to Sketch~N~Scrap and get crafting along with us.

Welcome to another great sketch at Try Stampin' On Tuesday.  I can't believe that we are just 15 days away from Christmas! Where did this year go? Anyone else feeling like it went just a bit TO fast this year?  It seems the older I get the faster they go.

On to todays sketch

Here is my card.  I found this cute stamp and die set at the Scrapbook expo this year and it just fit with this sketch. He is just to darn cute!

Merry & Bright AHSC #294

Hello everyone! I'm in full Christmas mode here.  Getting all things Christmas finished so I can go on vacation and not worry about a thing.  This weeks sketch is a fun one.  I love the all the circle elements (but can so be changed to a different shape).

I used all scraps that I had lying around on my scrap table to create this card today.  I have a craft show coming up so I've been cranking out all sorts of cards and boxes. Here is what I came up with

I made the circles using different size punches and punching out the smaller circle first and then using the larger one around it.

Merry Tree TSOT #386

Hi everyone! Welcome to another great sketch challenge at Try Stampin' On Tuesday.  This sketch was a bit of a challenge for me.  I ended up scrapping my first card and starting over.  You know how it is, something looks good in your head but not on paper. 

Here is today's sketch and there is a BLING IT UP challenge along with it.  You can bling it or not. Your choice.  

I decided to add just a bit of bling by using nuvo red slippers glitter drops as garland on my tree and a couple of drops on the background.  I used Spellbinders Christmas Tree etched die and Spellbinders fancy edged rectangle die to create my card. 

I used a brush silver cardstock from Stampin' Up! to cut out the words.  I wish it was a bit more vibrant but in person it's so pretty. Just enough...

Now it's your turn.  Head over to TSOT and get crafting with us!
