Ticket to Ride July 30, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — Christie @ 7:16 pm

After Jovelle was born, we took Judah on a fun outing to Chuck E. Cheese while Grandpa and Grandma “Plane” babysat Jovelle.  They later joined us at Chuck E. Cheese with 3 day old Jovelle…. And more than a year later, I finally got the pages done.  🙂



I love the little photo booth at Chuck E. Cheese – so much fun! – but was never sure what to do with the pictures from it.  Now I’ve solved the problem by scanning them and adding them to my layout. 

I thought this kit worked perfectly with the pages, too – bright and fun!  I didn’t even notice until I started that it matched Chuck E. Cheese himself, too.  🙂  The kit is Ticket to Ride by Mommy Made This and is available at Stuff to Scrap and Scraps-n-Pieces – check it out!

Our Life in a Year: July (and a freebie) July 13, 2012

Filed under: Adriana's Cafe,CT Shout Outs,Family,Freebie,Jovelle,STS designer — Christie @ 5:59 am

I’m so glad Adriana’s Cafe is making all these cute Our Life in a Year kits – it’s giving me a chance to catch up on scrapping some of those pictures that have been sitting on my computer! (And to weed through them – a necessity since my computer is flashing me a warning, “You have only 5 gigabytes of free space remaining. Yikes! Adriana has to stop making all these cute kits so I can get some hard drive space back! 😉 ) Her July kit is really cute – and there’s even a patriotic themed add-on so you can scrap all those Fourth of July pictures. Check out the pages I made with the kit and add-on.

Using the main portion of the July kit (Isn’t she a cutie, by the way???)

And here’s a look at the kit and add-on.

Full kit cuteness

The add-on.

You can pick up the kit at STS or SNP. It will be on sale for $2.50 at both stores – an even better deal, because the add-on is included FREE! It’s like getting two kits for the price of one!

And here’s a freebie for you – a fun little journal cluster for those Fourth of July pictures so you don’t have to do all the work yourself and can spend more time enjoying the summer sun! You can get it here.

Oh, and speaking of Adriana’s Cafe’s Our Life in a Year kits – the Quickpage Challenge at Stuff to Scrap features these kits. Check it out!


The Train Train Has Arrived! (CT blog hop!) July 12, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — Christie @ 5:00 am

Who doesn’t love trains – and freebies?! You’re in luck, because we have both for you today! The CT for Adriana’s Cafe has put together some great pages using Adriana’s kit, Ridin’ the Rails. I feel privileged to be a part of Adriana’s CT, and kits like these are one of the reasons why. I had been eyeing this kit for a while – my son and his grandpa are both train lovers! – and was so excited when I saw we would be doing a brag book train hop with the kit. I know just what I’m going to do all the pages I get! Any plans for yours??

Anyway, here’s my page! You can download it here. For the rest of the stops, go to Adriana’s Café’s blog. (Remember that everyone is in different time zones, so check back if someone’s freebie isn’t up yet!)

Remember, the freebies will be available until Sunday and the kit will be on sale for just $3.50 at Scraps N Pieces and Stuff To Scrap.

See you tomorrow!

Choo Choo! (A train train coming!) July 11, 2012

I just want to give you a heads up that Adriana’s Café is having a CT Blog Hop that will start…… TOMORROW!
Yes, that’s right! Tomorrow Adriana’s Cafe Creative Team will have 5×7 Brag Book Pages featuring Ridin’ The Rails. (Get it? A train train… Um, yeah, anyway….)

…Although, um, there might be one of us who, a-hem (blush blush), has a 4×6. A little misunderstanding, but no worries – I have resized 4×6 pages to 5×7 and 5×7 to 4×6 (cuz I’m wild and crazy like that) with no loss of quality…. So download and print away! The freebies will be available until Sunday and the kit will be on sale for just $3.50 at Scraps N Pieces and Stuff To Scrap.

See you tomorrow!
