My Money September 30, 2012

Some more layouts to show you, this time using My Money by Mommy Made This.  The kit is a fun, bright one great for layouts about saving money or even grocery shopping (or playing grocery store in our case!), but the kit is versatile enough that you can use it for other layouts, too.

Check out the kit, available at Scraps-n-Pieces.   There’s even a bonus of cardstocks and some American money.  🙂


New Kits from Adriana’s Cafe

Boy, do I have a lot of things to show you!  My internet has been out for a while (again!), so I am quite behind on layouts and show and tell.  J  But hang in there – I have some freebies, too, including a fun printable of lunchbox notes.

First up is Daily Memories by Adriana’s Café.  Here are some layouts.  I really like the one with my great-grandparents – the paper and lace make it feel so vintage!  🙂

My great grandparents and me! 🙂

…And the kit….

…And a cluster frame using Daily Memories that you can download here.

Adriana also has September’s Our Life in a Year out, too.  Check out the kit.

I went hybrid with this one and made some fun printable notes – 8 of them, actually – that can be slipped into school or work lunches.  I had so much fun with them that I just might have some next month with another of Adriana’s kits, except with a Halloween theme.  (Hint, hint!)  Here’s a peek at some of them.

And here’s a look at the notes in the download.  (Click on image for larger view.)

Download the printable lunch notes here, then just print them out on 8.5 x 11 paper, cut them and stick them in lunches.  Most of the notes are generic, but there are a couple school ones, too.  In the download some blank ones are also included so you can customize the notes.  Here are some other ideas and tips for notes:

  • Print out and pre-cut several notes at one time so they’re ready to grab and go on a busy morning.
  • Write a Bible verse to encourage or inspire.
  • Add a knock-knock joke.  What kid doesn’t love these?
  • Is there a test coming up?  A project at work?  A deadline?  Add a quote or Bible verse to let them know you’re thinking of them….
  • Save all those random toys from party bags and Happy Meals and throw them in every once in a while, or pop in some stickers for a fun surprise.
  • Write a personal note on pre-printed notes every now and then.
  • Have Daddy write notes every now and then for the kids, too.
  • …And don’t forget Daddy!  Have your kids draw a picture on a note for his lunch.

All of Adriana’s kits can be picked up at Scraps-n-Pieces or Stuff to Scrap.
