Our Life in a Year: November (and a Free Printable Thanksgiving Activity Placemat) November 17, 2012
Adriana’s Cafe has a new kit in the store: the next kit in the Our Life In A Year series, this time featuring the fall colors of November! I made a layout of my daughter’s first Thanksgiving (mainly because I loved the little onesie we made with her handprint!).
The colors are such fun, and there are some really fun elements and a cool alpha (which is saying a lot since I’m not a huge fan of alphas!).Here’s a peek at the preview.
You can grab my freebie here – a printable Thanksgiving activity placemat to keep the kids busy during the Thanksgiving meal. It’s designed to be printed at 8.5 x 11, but you can resize it to fit your needs. Check out Adriana’s blog for the rest of her CT freebies, too.
p.s. Visit Adriana’s blog for a giveaway sponsored by My Memories – you can win a full scrapbook software for FREE! Go check it out!
Butterfly Garden and a Freebie October 20, 2012
If you missed Butterfly Garden by Adriana’s Cafewhen it was offered as a freebie at Facebook, now it’s your chance to get it for a bit more than free! Butterfly Garden is in the stores for just $1.50 until October 26th, but after that will go back to the original price. Take a look at the preview and LOs. My layout is a double page of when Judah met his little sister for the first time. 🙂 Seems like ages ago!
And here’s the kit:
Here’s my freebie – a card for you to print out and brighten someone’s day with. 🙂 The card will be 4×6 when it’s folded, so it will print as 8×6. You can also just cut off the top white part and print it as a photo, then mail it as a postcard. You can download it here.
And don’t forget to grab the rest of your freebies. Go visit Adriana’s Blog for her freebie and CT blog links.

New Kits from Adriana’s Cafe September 30, 2012
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! 🙂
…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.
Our Life in a Year: July (and a freebie) July 13, 2012
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.
And here’s a look at the kit and add-on.
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!
