We Are Memory Keepers: Our Ribbons February 6, 2013

You may remember that Adriana of Adriana’s Cafe has a new series this year – We Are Memory Keepers.  Each month she is teaming up with different designers to bring two coordinating kits, wordart, templates and glitters.  This month’s feature she teamed up with Scrappin Serenity to make We Are Memory Keepers: Our Ribbons.  The kits are absolutely beautiful and were so fun to work with.  Check out the kit and the pages made with them (including some of my adorable – if I do say so myself! – baby girl….)
The kit will be on sale for just $3.49 until February 9th. at Stuff To Scrap and Scraps N Pieces Stores.

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.

As usual for the first week the kit will be on sale for just $2.70 at Scraps-n-Pieces and Stuff to Scrap

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.

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!  🙂

My great grandparents and me! 🙂

Catching up on Judah’s first year album

…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.


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???)

Double page spread using main kit and add-on. (Click to view larger.)

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!
