Hi blog friends  - Had some time to play this weekend and wanted to share my layout. I am so ready for fall - it is my favorite season! So I made a layout of the kids a few years back at our favorite pumpkin patch. I love finding new blogs to visit and stumbled across Stuck?! Sketches and decided to give their August 15th Challenge a try :) And over on Snap Click Supply this weekend they are having a 50 % off sale on all of their Fall and Autumn Digital Papers and Elements. Here is the sketch:

 I used the adorable Fall is in the Air Mega Collection from Echo Park for my layout.  I had a lot of fun creating this - sketches aren't just for paper scrapbooking! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. Have a great weekend.

Paper Ball Garland - Kids Crafts

Hi Everyone! I am  here to share with you a cute  Kids Craft . I have older kids so finding the time to craft with them is a little tricky, so I wanted to share a quick and easy craft that is really fun. My 14 year old daughter is crafty like her mama and she loves making things to decorate her room , so when I stumbled on this cute paper ball garland that she had mentioned she wanted to try I knew I had to showcase this project.
 To make this project I used the following:
-Petite Print paper strips 1/2 inch x 12 inches
- Glue dots, or sticky strip

Let me walk you through how to make the garland:
Step one-
Trim the paper into (4) 1/2 x 12inch strips
Step 2 -
Gently fold the strips in half. We do this so when glue the strips together we can see where the center of the strips are.

Step 3-
Take 2 of the strips and add adhesive to the centers of both strips .Make a cross.
Step 4-
Take the other 2 strips and criss- cross them on top of the first group of strips Add adhesive to the center of just the bottom strip. You don't need adhesive on the very top strip.
Step 5-
To create the ball , add adhesive to each end of the strips. Start folding all the strips to the center as shown.
Here is what the balls look like when they are all put together-
To complete the garland I made a few of the balls and strung them on a piece of Chunky Twine. To finish them off we added a cute button to the top the ball.

These are so easy to make and honestly a little addicting too! We thought of all the fun ways these could be used - as a room decor, as party decor or a fun ornament on a Christmas tree as well. Lots of endless possibilities! Thanks for joining me today! Happy Crafting!

Digital Inspiration with Tya

Hi there -  I have a Digital Layout to share with you today. I just wanted to share with you a quick tip - I loved using the 3x4 Journaling Spots found in Lori's new I Love Family collection as page elements. Many of the spots have darling icons as well as spaces for journaling.

 As you can see in my layout I used 4 different journaling spots and then one photo. This layout came together rather quickly when using this technique. I love adding little bits and pieces of embellishments to the cards to dress them up.

Thank you for stopping by today and taking a peek!  Have a great week!
