Gift Bags, Trinkets, and Giveaway Winner



I'm popping in today to share a new project and to announce the Michael's gift card winner. Be sure to keep reading to see who won!

I recently hung out with my Houston Insta-Sistas for a day of fun. Sweet Nancy Wyatt invited me to join this group!

We are a group of locals who are addicted to Instagram! We also network, share ideas, and have developed a sisterhood of friendship. These are the gifts that I gave to each lady in the group during our luncheon last month.

I whipped up these fun little bags using supplies from SRM Stickers



The pink doilies are from my stash. I also added a flower to the front of each bag.

I also gave them these cute little ceramic jewelry boxes. Each one had a fun design on it. 



And now for the giveaway winner! Congrats to JP Scraps!

I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Halloween and the Project Life App - Day 5



Welcome to Day #5 of the "7 Days of Halloween Inspiration Event" brought to you by "The Inspiration Crew". 





We’re just a group of online blog friends who love being creative! Keep reading to see all of the participating blogs and prizes that are being offered!

This time around I'm showing you a project that I whipped up in 10 minutes using the new Project Life App from Becky Higgins.

This app can be purchased and downloaded from the App Store for $2.99. I am an app fanatic and love this easy concept for scrapbooking. 




What I like about the app:

    • It's quick and easy to use.
    • There are many styles of Project Life cards to choose from.
    • There are a variety of page layouts, templates, and themes.
    • I can scrapbook on-the-go.


Some of you may ask this question?What do I do with page once it's created on my phone?

Answer - There are great printing options using this App. 

Some of my Instagram friends have printed their pages out using Persnickety Prints and Costco. I will be giving both options a try to see which would be better for me. The prints at Persnickety are only $1.99. That's a great price for my budget. And they fit perfectly in photo sleeves. 

Here are some pages that were printed using Persnickety Prints. It looks fabulous and can be added to your Project Life albums. 




Need a video tutorial? 
Be sure to check out Emily's video tutorial on how this app works.
