Super Cute Door Hangers

These are some super-cute door hangers that I made for each of the obys.  The back is an old CD that I covered with the paper.  The ribbon is glued between the paper & disk & obviously is long enugh to slip over the knob.

Paper for Zack is My Mind’s Eye, letters are Chatterbox, Making Memories, Paper Studio and Lil’ Davis.  Stickers are 7 Gypsies.  Train is one of those little wooden pieces you can get out of the bin at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.   Add a picture and it is an adorable way to personalize a door in a very non-permanent (destructive) way.


Papers here are Junkitz, Letters are Making Memories, Paper Studio & Li’l Davis.  Sticker is Creative Memories & button is Dress-It-Up.


All told, I think it took about an hour a piece.  This is also a great idea for magnets and Christmas tree ornaments.

LO - My Travels

This single page layout is from our Gatlinburg trip, first family vacation, back in 2003.  I was very pregnant with 000 & 003 was quite the handful.  This was back when I was first starting to be OK with my own handwriting on my pages and it is funny to think all I used to do was on the PC now all I do is handwriting.  Interesting to see the early days of that sylistic change. Paper is doodlebug, rubons are Creative Imaginations, I don’t remember where I got the charm and the ribbon is Offray, I’m sure.

I still struggle trying to go deeper with my journaling, beyond “just the facts, ma’am”, as I enjoy reading that.  But perhaps that is just a part of what makes me me, but I would like to learn how to make it more meaningful.  To tell a story, to get a person “inside” it.

A few cards to share

Here are some really quick cards that I made up from scraps when I was done with layouts and other projects.  It seems like I always have a large pile of card bases waiting to be turned into something….

These 2 both are Bazzill Basics cardstock with Provo Craft paper (at Michael’s).  Rubons are Basic Grey (I think!)

This is still Bazzill Basics cardstock but the paper is Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) and then a Junkitz Rubon.

Just very simple and quick.  I like having lots of cards around as I usually am sending out lots too.  Thanks for checking them out!
