Exciting Project Life News

I am beyond excited to announce that I once again have signed up to be a demo for Stampin Up. I loved being a demo and am happy to go back to my roots sort to speak. Now to let you know of what I have planned for the near future. With the New Year coming so quickly I am looking to starting this awesome project.

I am in the works of making an exclusive group where I will be posting weekly videos via YouTube sharing my layouts,tips and ideas for you to use for your Project Life album. I will share my techniques and how I've made it work for me the past 4 years. Only those part of the group will be able to have access to them.

In order to be part of the group you have to agree to place an order each month of a min. of $25.00 (before shipping) and that will be your access pass to every video each month. 

I am looking to start the group with 10 people for now, the first six people to sign up will receive a special thank you gift from me in the mail plus an exclusive video before our official start.

If you are interested in joining the group please feel free to email me and let me know you are interested.

I look forward to this amazing journey in helping you document your memories.

Weekend Birthday Remix

So excited about this week my kids have a short school week,Thanksgiving,  Our Friday Thanksgiving (which I'll share about later this week) and Alice our Elf comes back. Oh let the Holidays really begin!

Now this past weekend I got to go to the city and hang with my best friend. It was my Birthday Remix. Where I got just have a fun day out. So here is a little recap of what I got to do.

                                      Just a little excited about getting into the city! I love taking the train it's rare that I do nowadays so to me it's a super treat.

This pictures cracks me up cause it looks like a posed High School picture! Actually this was on our way to go on the SkyRide in the Empire State building. It was a little outdated (the info/movie quality) but it was fun and with a good deal on Groupon worth it.

                 Ahhh nothing like walking in the city nothing like New York I tell you.Walking about is an event in itself. Especially right now since all the windows are started to get dressed for the Holidays so much to see.

          We ended up at Times Square where we ended up taking a ride on the Wheel at the HUGE Toys R Us store.While waiting we ended up getting the most YUMMY of Red Velvet cookies... (forgot to snap a picture cause we gobbled the cookies right up!)

            Had lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe. It was pretty cool in there I must say. We even heard someone getting engaged while we were there!

I couldn't pass the Stairs of "Broadway" without taking a picture. I love these steps they are so awesome.

The Treat that came home me. If you know me you KNOW what Crumbs mean to me. A couple of months ago they went out of business I was completely heart broken.  Imagine my surprise when all of a sudden I found out that they were coming back! I actually hadn't had the chance to do it yet, so imagine my surprise as I was walking back to the train station to see a Crumbs! I HAD to get me my favorite- Red Velvet - SO GOOD!!!

We did loads other things to and I snapped each step of the way but these are the super highlights. It was one awesome day. I'm recharged and ready to get this week started. I have so AWESOME fun coming up to share with you guys.

What about you guys what was your weekend like?

5 Christmas Gifts to keep You on Course

Next week we have Thanksgiving which means everything is going to go on hyper drive with the Holiday REALLY upon us and I can't wait to see all the magical moments with my kids and family. In all the craze sometimes mamas (and daddies) forget themselves.

For myself as my birthday gift I decided that I would focus once again on my health and so far so good I've been doing good. Therefore this year my wishlist for Santa is totally different. As I'm hoping to add helping hands if you will.

Now on to this wishlist. Maybe you can add it to your list and get a little push too!

Since one of my favorite exercises is running these are perfect as they are made for woman. They are smaller made to fit our ears and wouldn't fall out which I have a problem with my regular earphones.

2.Nike C72 Legend 2.0

Since I go to the gym I want a bag that will be just for that reason. Right now I have been using a bag that I also use for my regular day and since well it can get yucky and so I have been washing it (it's a jean material) so this way I can just clean this and keep it for when I head to the gym.

3. THIS Shirt!!
I NEED to earn this shirt so seeing it hung up will push me to make it true. I so want to run a race.

4.Subscription to StrideBox

Once a month you receive a small box of goodies picked just for runners. I love this idea. I bet getting this box once a month will keep reminding me I got to get up and get moving!

5. Running Bra

I can not even being to tell you how important it is to have a good running bra. I've "tried" with a regular on yeah worst thing EVER! You feel the difference right away and it allows you to really give it your all and go a little harder.

Alright so tell the truth this little list has made you want to get up and get moving right? I know I do. So tell me what kind of workout is your favorite?

Sometimes you just got Digi

Lately it's been all about projects around here and so I've been helping the kids with cutting and gluing paper and everything else leaving me with no time to scrapbook like I've been wanting to. Instead of actually adding to the crazy messes going on with projects mid way I decided to make a few digital scrapbook pages instead.

I went over to Snap Click Supply Co  and got this very adorable kit called - Happy Fall Ya'll and got to creating while I waited on my son to finish his part of his project so I could help with the next step.

I pulled up my pictures of when we went to the pumpkin patch. I probably am going to send these to Persnickety Prints to get them printed and stick them in our album.

I really love how these pages came out. I hope to create a few more pages with this kit. How about you, have you created any digital or physical pages lately?

We had the opportunity to review two DVD's starring Peppa Pig and her family. Since it was for the kids I thought I'd let my 7 year little girl do the review.  Here's what she thought about it!

Now since we enjoyed them I thought why not send out the love and have a giveaway for someone to enjoy these too. So all you have to do is enter below! Does your family enjoy Peppa Pig like ours?

*I was sent the DVDs to review but all my opinions and words are of my own.*

Simple Kids Wish List booklets

Are your kids like mine walking about with a trillion pieces of papers already with the list of things they want to put on their wishlist?

Well to stop the madness I quickly made them these simple little wishlist booklets. It came together pretty quickly.

Here is what you'll need to make your kids one too :

-Holiday Patterned Paper ( I used a double sided one from Echo Park- Letters to Santa)
-Letter Stickers
-3x4 Project Life journal cards (or you could use regular paper to create your pages)
-Anything else you want to use to decorate that you have at hand.
-3x4 Paper Card Punch  (or you could use a round corner punch)

Let's get Creating!

1. Punch out 4 cards for your front and back covers, If you don't have the punch then cut 4 squares of patterned paper sized at 3x4 each.  Then use your corner punch to round each corner.

2. Now to make the booklet. Gather together the pages for the inside. I used 8 cards. Grab a front and back cover and place them together and staple at 2 top corners.

3.Once you have put it together now comes the fun of decorating your little booklet.

4.I decided to change the letters I had originally picked out as they were too transparent. Play around with your cover and have fun. For me since the patterned paper was already almost perfect I just added a few simple touches.

I added the 13 as that is the year and I plan to sticking these into our December Daily album. You could also just include this into your project life album as it's the perfect size for one of the pockets.

 If you decide to create your own little wishlist booklets I'd love to see them. Can you believe Thanksgiving is a week and a half away! We are pretty excited around here. Is your family?
