Hybrid Scrappers or just fun stuff here is inspiration for you!

Hi this is Lissa Marie, here to do my first post for “Just Jaimee“!  How exciting!  I thought, “Oh what to do, what to do, as I had many things come to mind, at the last-minute I decided to go with this journal book for my project life, organization.  Perfect timing at the beginning of the year!

I found a page template on Pinterest from last year, but I don’t know the blog I found it at, during my desperate search I didn’t find anything like I wanted for my new journal this year.  So I got busy in PS and made one for my book pages, I sure wished I could share with you but I don’t have one for every week.  I just typed in the week and printed on 8.5 x 14 paper, double sided.  The important part is the fun embellishments that I made for the book.  I love making books with scrap mat board, and binding them with the Cinch machine.  I then printed out the cover with Jaimee’s designs on heavy card stock, and printed out some embellishments on glossy sticker paper to decorate it, leaving tabs f
or quick stops and notes.

I wished I could say I used my Silhouette Cameo, but I don’t have the settings down for this kind of sticker paper and ended up hand cutting them out.  No biggy because many people don’t have a cameo and would have to do that anyway.

I hope you find this project useful and fun for your own kind of journals.  I have made many with just lines and decorated them with digital elements!  It is fun, now I have to stick to the plan on USING it!  Jaimee gives me NO excuse NOT to scrapbook!  I am so excited to be on her team, looking forward to bringing you alot of inspiration!

I know I am not the only mom who likes to color like a little girl…

I promise I have been crafting away but not sharing to save it for one amazing post!  Getting ready for my first post with Just Jaimee at the LilyPad Designs, as part of her hybrid team I am excited to show you what I have made coming up on Sunday!  I also started something new, as I walked into my daughter’s school, the receptionist had this awesome scarf on, I ran down to JoAnn’s and bought all the materials to make it, in the process of making 8 of them!  Here is a little piece of it, since my kids made me make Seahawk Player football dolls, lol.  They saw this in the Seattle Times and went nuts!  So here is my Saturday craft before the game against the Panthers.  Wooo Hoooo we kicked some butt!  Excited for this weekend to see how it’s going to go, it’s pretty intense here in Washington State!  I made the Russell Wilson doll since Collin begged me to download it and my husband kept teasing me that if he poked the Russell doll if he would feel it!  lol but I know he would never because Russell Wilson Rocks!  Earl Thomas was in there too, he was the cutout in the newspaper.  So I made one each for the kids!

Oh does that look like Sherman taking the man down?  I can’t recall who it was but it was a GREAT game!  Go Hawks!

So anyway, I post a better picture of the scarves I made later, then got on a serious want and bought my first brand new sewing machine.  I don’t count the little Janome that I have, I need power!  So I bought a Singer 3325, I was told it would take care of anything I need.  I am not a Suzy home maker but once and while I like a change of pace and plan to make my boy some jamma bottoms.  Yep, fleece baseballs all over them, boy do I know how to pick out the material!  LOL

GirlinPinkI like to go to Pinterest and download free digi stamps then color them in.  It’s fun and makes the time go by fast! Weather it is on my phone or tablet, I love coloring. I was drawing some for awhile but I really need to get back to that.  I loved this girl, she was to cute!  I love using the shading, blending and all that.  Using PS Touch App or sometimes Sketchbook Pro.  So worth the little of the cost!

Then here are a couple little love birds!

Nope I am not a copics girl or traditional colors I love my digital coloring and will stick with that!  Makes for great cards, printed out with a nice sentiment.  Hope to see you again soon, Sunday for sure!  If you are into Project Life or any kind of pocket page style scrapping, you won’t want to miss this, or into hybrid, or book binding at all, you really don’t won’t want to miss out on Sunday’s post!

Happy Crafting!

Snapdragon Snippet in the Silhouette store – Labels

Hi this is Lissa to share a post with you about labels, these labels are named “for canning jar tops” in the store but you can use them for so much more.  These labels are from the Snapdragon Snippets Designs, Design ID #65834.  I was only able to show you one example on a card, you can use them on anything adding your own artwork fonts whatever you like.
Here are some of the other designs I used with the labels,  I drew some myself, (the pumpkin) I used some digital kits just a little of this and that, showing you how you can use them for labeling jars, having pretty things, cupcake toppers, even making sticker rewards for your kids.   I use the LD glossy photo sticker paper from Amazon and they print just beautiful.  They are suppose to be washable too!  I wished I could have used them in more samples but I ran out of time.   To much fun picking out the designs!  Here is a sheet I reprinted, can’t wait to use them I can even put them on scrapbook pages!

 

I hope you have enjoyed this post and the next time I see you it will be my last post!  The new team will be coming in and I will continue to enjoy the files I have used from this team!
Would love to hear your comments!
