{iPhone} Christmas wallpaper

I wanted to make something with these when I saw the printables over at eighteen25:
Santa Claus is Coming to town

Here's what I came up with.

It's pretty easy to come up with your own if you can work your way around photoshop. You just need to use the correct pixel size for your screen resolution. That information can be found here:


{PreSchool} Artwork

Wow it's been a while. I've been up to a lot of things with little picture taking. I decided I need to preserve my daughter's artwork. I downloaded the 12x12 template from Persnickety Prints found here.

I thought it would work out better if it was all condensed. I got this idea from Pinterest, but I can't find where I was inspired about for this.


{Mini} book with mini instaframes

Here's a mini book I just completed using my instaframes I made (and shared with you!). I thought it turned out great. I always have an easier time completing things for other people than I do with projects for me.

This is for my sister who is currently at the Missionary Training Center in Utah. She will leave in a few months to go the Philippines. She has to spend some time in Utah to learn the language - Tagalog. She seems to be picking it up pretty quickly. I just wanted to make a quick book of encouraging quotes to brighten her day. I also made one for her roommate/missionary companion. I hope they both like them.

 Little tabs - used my new Stampin! Up border punch

 This is my favorite page. Used Stampin! Up new Honeycomb Texture emboss folder. The tag is colored with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Primrose. It was kind of a happy accident so I used it!.

{Instagram} Series: Episode One: mini instaframes

Since I've been using instgram, I thought it might be fun to do a little mini series about it. I'll start with mini frames.

 I've also loved all the apps (LabelBox, Photo, DipTic, and a few others) that you can use to jazz up your Instagram pictures. I've used a lot of fonts from Rhonna Designs and have found some other files that you can use to add to your Instagram.

I needed some instaframes to add to a scrapbook page and since I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for, I made some of my own. Here's the SVG file I thought I would share. Right click to access. I hope it works. I have the PNG file if anyone wants that as well.

After you download, you can import into Silhouette software by following steps here:

Let me know if this works for you. 


Echo Park {Baby} Tags

I've been really busy creating lately. Thought I would help out with this cause over at Echo Park paper. I don't have physical product for them, but I do have a ton of digital stuff. So I went hybrid for these. Made some tags via photoshop (trying 11 at the moment and totally liking it!). And here's some of the ones I came up with!

I used the following lines: Tag 1 - This and That Graceful Tag 2 -  Dots and Stripes: Candy Shoppe Tag 3 - Pride and Joy Tag 4 - This and That Charming. All kits found at JessicaSpraque


Rhonna Designs: Merry Christmas Gift {Tag} Contest

Rhonna Designs is holding a contest to create Christmas tags using her new and last year's digital Christmas line. I thought I would make one and turned into a few. Here's what I came up with:

Feel free to join in. You just need to post to her blog and to this pinterest board to enter. She has more detailed instructions.


{Mixed} Media: Help?

I'm in need of some help. I've really wanted to get something made that is mixed media, but I need resources. Searching the internet helps a little, but I was wondering if my crafty friends can point me to places that have helped them. Any suggestions? Let me know!!
