Sketches and Pockets

I love sketches if you follow me on Pinterest you will know that I pin sketches for inspiration all the time. I have been oh so lucky to use one of Jen’s sketches from Jen Wright Designs and truly enjoyed the fact that she got me to step outside of the box on this one.

Here is Jen’s template. I didn’t use it exactly as she created it but I used it for my Project Life album and it worked out perfectly.

Now to see what I did with this template and Jen’s gorgeous Thanksgiving layout that she did you are going to have to hop on over to Jen’s site by clicking HERE but I will share a little sneak peek of my layout.

Creative Christmas Crafting

make it mondayDecember 1st is here and with that the Creative Christmas bundle is almost gone as well. At 90% off this is the deal of the century and is jam packed with so many projects to make your Christmas crafting easy and fun. Today I am going to show how I incorporated some of the products from the other designers that participated in putting this bundle together.

Margareta has created an entire pocket scrapbooking kit for this bundle and it is gorgeous. In preparation of documenting my December Daily this year I downloaded the files and put them on my phone. I know that I will want to create some collage photos for my December Daily album and these pocket cards are perfect. I even played around in the Aviary app to add some effects to one of the 3×4 cards. You can take these cards and make them your own by sticking them into a photo editing app.

I took Margareta’s cards and put them in a project life layout via the project life app so that you could see some of the cards that are available. I also want to share that whether the card is 3×4 or 4×6 it conforms to the pocket that you are placing the card in, as you can see I used 4×6, 4×4 and 3×4 sizes in these layouts. I edited the snowman card with the Aviary app which was free for the whole month of November along with all the effects that are available in the app but their are tons of apps that you can use to edit these cards to make them fit your December Daily theme.

Here is the catch, if you like these cards or need some help with crafting this holiday season then this bundle is for you but Today is the last day that you can get this bundle at 90% off. After today the bundle will no longer be available. Their are other digital scrapbooking kits available in the bundle, an Advent Calendar activity, Christmas cards, a Calendar that you can create for the new year, embroidery patterns and more. Don’t miss out on this amazing bundle of crafty goodies. I even forgot to mention the Cricut and Silhouette cut files that are also available in the bundle. You can grab the bundle by clicking HERE.

If you would like to see what some of the other designers have created by using this bundle you can hop on over to Janet where she shares with you how she likes to make a digital template her own and a few template tricks using her products from the Creative Christmas Bundle and I am hoping that you came to me from Kristie who showed you how to jazz up printables to create unique cards with minimum time & effort.

The next deal that is available is amazing and is also only available today only. Both of these offers end at 11:59 pm on December 1st.
