Updated Scrap Desk

My updated scrap space...

 and how it looked before...

Worked hard this weekend on painting this room, too tired to fill my "hutch"...reorganization in progress!

Leave a comment and let me know what you think, esp if you like the pic my husband took of the updated space, he would love to hear the feedback on his photography skills.  He was so much help this weekend.  There is no way I could have gotten as far as I did without his help.  He's a keeper!  Thanks for helping honey!!!  :-)

Flower Pot Card for Professional Admin Day

Professional Administrative Day was in April and this is a gift card I made for our Office Administrator (OA).  I purchased all the images from the Silhouette store and used pattern paper to pull it all together.  I like to decorate the front and back of these cards. 

Project Life - Space Week

I made this card for my Project Life album.  When  the kids are in  kindergarten they have week long units.  One unit is always Space.  I bought all the images from the Silhouette Store, including the Fabulous background.  (Please excuse the paw print as it hides the school acronym.)  I printed it as is and cut the edge.

Project Life cards

Here are 2 journal cards I made using my Silhouette and pattern paper bought from the Silhouette Store.

To add the fall border on the top of the first one, I made a rectangle longer than the image I was cutting and set the option to no cut...that way, I didn't have to glue it on the card.  (See below for the cut line screen capture.)

Project Life

I was excited to find this soccer paper in the Silhouette Library.  Score!!!

I have started a couple of albums for my kids with the Beck Higgins Project Life idea.  The journal cards are currently out of stock at Amazon right now because she is changing vendors.  They will now be made here in the USA!  I have been making my own using Silhouette Files.

To make this journal card, I selected the image, filled it with the soccer pattern, then I did an internal offset and filled it with white.  Next, I added my text and chose a font and font color.  Lastly, I used the cut edge option so there were no layers to be glued.  Please feel free to contact me if you need help with this.  If you are doing Project Life, I would love to see your projects, please share!
