Recent Project

Okay, so my most recent project is finishing up my holiday gifts for my kids' teachers at daycare. I'll post a couple of pics of it, but since I have pictures of other people's kids in it, I don't feel like I am free to post the whole thing. This is the first page, and my son's page. I am hoping to finish a similar book for my daughters class soon. Life has kept me on my toes lately! This project was done in Storybook Creator 3.0 Plus, and uses a variety of the digital artwork that is available. The First page uses art from the Discover "Cute as a bug" addition. Finley's page is from the Simple Start CD, which is pre-designed pages and click and fill pages.

I am horrible about posting!

So three months ago I said I was going to post weekly, and obviously, I have not been doing that. This year I am going to try harder to post as close to weekly as possible. One of my new years resolutions is to get into the studio and scrapbook more, and hopefully that will give me something to post more frequently.

Today I just have a quick project to post. It is our 2010 Christmas card. I'm really proud of it for a few reasons. First of all, I think it is adorable. I used a pre-designed page in Storybook Creator 3.0 Plus for the front of the card. To streamline things, I had our yearly letter printed on the inside. Then, on the back of the card, which is normally just wasted space, I put a picture of each of the kids. But the thing I am most proud of is that this year I actually MAILED my holiday cards. Having the pictures and letter already done made it so much easier to get the cards ready, and them being so cute made me more motivated to actually get them in the mail.

Anyway, here are the pictures of the cards:




I had the cards printed through the Creative Memories digital center, and I must say, I love how they turned out! The cards are a nice heavy weight and come in 10 or 20 packs with your choice of many envelope colors.

I hope you enjoyed looking!
Until next time - Vanessa
