Mojo Monday- Get your Christmas on!

This week’s challenge is to work on documenting your holiday season.  Being surrounded by Christmas decorations, gift wrap,and  home decor inspired me to shop for some Christmas themed scrapbook paper and embellishments. I don’t yet have the photos to scrap, but I put together some pocket pages anyway. I just left some blank spaces to add photos in after.  Here is what I came up with on Saturday night while my kids were having a sleepover🙂

I used paper from 2 of my favourite collections, the first is Pinkfresh and the second is Special Delivery by Carta Bella.

Have you seen the Advent Calendar at the Paperie yet?  It is amazing, and inspired me to spend the whole day on Sunday making one with my kids.  ‘Tis the season for making memories, documenting those memories, and getting crafty!

Documenting December

It’s November 30th! That means that tomorrow is December 1st and the beginning of my Documenting December album! I love December – so much activity and so much fun for my children and our family. I love to give December some special attention documenting the daily happenings.

There are lots of ways to get in on the fun! You could create a mini album to capture all the memories in one location. I love to include so many of the “extras” that go along with December; letters to Santa, Christmas cards, tickets to the Nutcracker, programs from school Christmas concerts etc.

Another option is to include December in your Project Life® album as you would any other month! The Paperie is super excited this year because we have own very own December cards created that will fit perfectly into your Project Life® album or your very own mini album!

There’s a ton of inspiration out there online and from our very own customers and Paperie Instructors! Here’s a handout we created and shared with some customers this past week as they prepare to set out Documenting December!

It’s never too late to get started. Get out your smart phone and start taking pictures! Visit us at the Paperie if you have questions and we can set you up with what you need to create a wonderful album of memories for a fantastic time of year!

Have fun! I hope you are all inspired by something wonderful this week!

Feature Friday – Chalkboard Vinyl

Happy Friday everyone!  Today I am showing you a few things I have made using Silhouette chalkboard vinyl.  It’s perfect for making erasable boards on signs or for labels.

I love how I can change from naughty to nice on a daily basis. Helps keep the kiddos (or Paperie employees)  on their best behaviour😉
