Birthday’s Galore

UMMMMMMM how did this happen? It seems that all I do in January right after Christmas is celebrate birthdays. The first half of January is literally all about recovering from Christmas and celebrating birthdays.

The first birthday is my daughter’s on January 11th, the next birthday is the baby’s on January 12th (and yes you read that right, the very next day is the baby’s birthday) and then its my birthday on January 14th. Oh and lets not forget that I have a niece and a mother in law that celebrate on January 8th and January 17th. All I can do is pray that I make it through.

With all that being said the Confetti Wishes line is perfect for scrapbooking all these birthdays! I put my Canon Selphy to work and printed out some photos so that I could scrap some of the birthday festivities of my daughter and son. I prepped my layouts ahead of time which really made it easy to pop the photos on to my layouts so that I could share them with you. If you have a Selphy and are in need of some printing tips you can check out my top 5 tips for printing with your Selphy by clicking here.

Here is what I came up with for my daughter’s birthday layout. I scrap the children’s birthday’s seperately as they each have their own albums that I put their birthdays and their events in plus I have our family albums. How do you handle different events for your children?

My son’s layout I used the same paper kit but but it came out completely different. I have a much easier time scrapping girls because I can get all girly with the layouts.

January is almost over and so is the awesome special of the Year Noted Paper kit that you can grab for only $5 dollars this month in my shop. You can see the paper pack by clicking HERE and when I say this paper and exclusive stamp set is awesome I truly mean that it is awesome.

OLW Process


Create is a good word for me this year and a word that found me towards the end of last year. I adopted the word right away and have been embracing this one little word! This is the first year that I am going through Ali Edwards class and all I can say is that so far I am loving it. I also found a wonderful Bible plan through my Holy Bible app with some really good questions to answer about my one little word. So between Ali Edwards and the Bible plan my word is going to be spoken into existence all year long.

For the class Ali Edwards recommends using an 8.5×11 album but I didn’t have one and I do have tons of 12×12 albums hanging around so I decided to attempt documenting everything in my 12×12 album. I created a beautiful layout with the Year Noted paper and stamp kit that is exclusive to Close To My Heart this month and focused on the journaling. I also created the cut file for you to use in design space which you can grab by clicking HERE.

Here is my completed layout. I really love this Year Noted kit that you can grab for only $5 with any $50 dollar purchase in my shop by clicking HERE

I created my first process video ever! I told you CREATE is my word for this year. If you like the video please give me a thumbs up on YouTube or leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you. You can always just wish me a Happy Birthday being that its my Birthday today!
