Getting Ready for Fall

Hi Everyone,
I have been wanting to put a wreath up on my front door FOREVER, but I just couldn't figure out what I wanted.  I wanted something that could stay up year round but could easily be changed for the different times of year/holidays.  This wreath has been in my closet for almost a year so I decided today was the day.  Hobby Lobby has their wood letters on sale for 30% off (cost me less than three dollars) and their ribbon for 50% off.  I thought it would be cute to keep the letter the plain wood color and just change the bow throughout the year.  My silhouette came in handy for cutting the "Est. 2002" on brown vinyl and the font is playball.  There are super strong magnets holding the ribbon on the backside of the door which works perfectly!

Here is an up close view

I love how this turned out and how simple it will be to change it up.

Mickey Mouse Travel Journal

Happy Monday!
Awhile back, a friend of mine asked me if I could make her a trip journal for their upcoming trip to Disneyland.  She has an adorable 8 month old and wanted to put the highlights from his first trip all in one place.  I decided to try out a digital kit for some of the papers and  embellishments because I didn't want it to be too bulky.  I found the kit here!

I used my Silhouette to create this entire book.  The fonts are from my computer, a few images are from my cuttlebug folder, and the rest is done using the digital kit.  I laminated the front and back cover to give it more stability because she is taking it with them on their trip.  I then used my "bind it all" to hold it all together.  This book is 5"x7" (Perfect for traveling).  I created the journal pages on my silhouette by making my own lines and then fitting the digital images around them.

On this page I used my cuttlebug and die cuts I found at Big Lots a few years ago.

The page on the left is also done with my Cuttlebug die cut folder

What a fun idea to keep your memories from "The Happiest Place on Earth"!

Have a great day!
