Project Life in the New Year!

Monday, January 26, 2015

I am really loving Project Life lately! I even ordered a kit from Studio Calico to kick me into high gear of my goal of completing more pages in 2015. 

This is my first time ever ordering a kit. I really love that everything is all right there for me to work with. I used the Far, Far Away Kit . The colors, Project Life cards, and embellishments that come with this kit are fantastic.

I did add a canvas heart and SRM Stickers. That's the fun with Project Life. You can add a splash of embellies just about anywhere on the page. I also got this page done in minutes.

Be sure to check out the kit! I plan on ordering more from them! Stay tuned for more fun Project Life pages!

DIY Valentine's Day Mini Bags

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Valentine's Day is right around the corner! It's time to start putting on our "crafty thinking caps" and come up with some fun ideas for our next big holiday. I thought I would share with you my quick and easy project that can be made in minutes. Here we go...

First, you will need the right supplies. I picked up most of these from Target and Michael's Craft Store

For an extra added touch I used dies and washi tape. Dies are great for any type of crafting, especially if you want to add different shapes and dimension to your project.

You can design these mini bags just about any way that you like. 
Just have fun with it. And get the kiddos involved too! They love making Valentine's Day goodies for their friends.

From Start to finish this is an easy and fun project that everyone can do! Stay tuned to the blog for more exciting projects for 2015.

Here are more Cokie Pop Designs Valentine's Day projects for you to enjoy!

Happy 2015 everyone! 

I'm so happy to be back with all of you in blog land. I've taken the last couple of months to rest, recharge, and get ready for new and exciting things for Cokie Pop Paper.

I've got a new concept that I will be starting on my blog this year.

The new plans include:

A new blog design
Project Life pages
Gift Ideas
Instagram & photography
Guest bloggers/designers
and much more!

I've been taking some graphic design and photography classes and will incorporate more of that on my blog as well.

I've also decided to only take on one design team this year so that I can focus on producing quality projects that I can take my time and enjoy making. I am so happy to create for a company that is based in my hometown of Texas! Yay for The Little Blue House! I am one of their newest media team members.

I also made more of these for a baby shower! Several of my Instagram followers asked if I would post more about it here on my blog. Here you go...

They are so easy to make too! Just grab some of these acrylic buckets from Michaels. 

Once you get them home, add your favorite material or scrapbook paper using liquid adhesive. Then decorate the outside using wood pieces, chipboard, or anything that you'd like. 

The dimensions of each acrylic bucket is different so just measure with your material/paper to get a snug fit.

Stay tuned for more projects and more fun!
