My Mini Bill Planner

Hi, Ya'll:)

Today I wanted to show off my latest project, what I call my bill planner.  So for years I kept track of what bills needed to be paid in a little 5x7 notebook.  I think I have had that notebook for about 7 years now.  Well, it is on it's last leg and I needed something to replace it with.  So, I got to thinking why not make one.  Since I liked the idea of the envelope mini album, it is just condensed version of one. I have two pockets made with envelopes, I printed some lined paper to write on and put it all together with my BIA(bind it all). I made a pen to match as well  The paper pack used was Recollections Everyday Moments.  I love, love that paper pad, it is soooo pretty!  Sooo, check it out below!

Envelope Mini Album Kathy Orta Style

Hello lovely Blogland

I have finally tried my hand at making a mini album.  Now, you know mini albums tutorials are all over the web.  So I chose to follow, You Tuber Kathy Orta.  It was simple, but I would suggest you watch the video several times and get all the supplies first.  I did not do that, so I had to stop and re-start a few!  I got through it and I think it turned out really cute!.  Since, I really did not know what I was doing I chose to use some really inexpensive, but cute paper from Wally World.  It was the Colorbok Paper collection Fresh Linen. It really is cute paper, see below.  They had two different kinds of paper stacks for this one.  One paper pack had more paper, while the other had more stickers, etc.

I used black cardstock  I found at Tuesday Morning, I think it is called Paper Studio.  It was only  1.99 so  I got all they had that day:).  I added a little bling on the front with some Boa feathers I got from Wally World.  I am really happy with the way it came together. 

Ok, so I did a video to show you guys what I did, so ..umm.. let's just say amateur attempt at video! Anyway, check it out below.

Blog for you soon-

Daughter's Graduation Party Decorations

My daughter graduated from high school this year..sniff..sniff.  They grow soo fast!
Anyway, we through a graduation party for her and  I made all the decorations.  Know let me say, I do not know how people do this all the time..but this was a lot of work! It was fun, but whew! She is going off to VA Tech in the fall, so I incorporated both her current school colors orange and black and her new school schools, orange and maroon in the design. My advice for those who have not done this before, start early!!! lol!!   I used my cricut, YourStory, SCAL and several cartridges for most of the decorations.  The poms, poms were made from plastic table cloths, really easy to make.  I found the tutorials for the poms, the water bottles labels,  the chocolate graduation hats and the banner on the internet.
