I have been wanting to make one of these badge albums for some time...you use name badges (purchased here), and they make the cutest little scrapbook pages. I decided to purchase a quick page kit to make the process a whole lot faster (just drop and drag your photos into the psd document).
Since I wanted to make Sharon a little something to remember her graduation...I decided to make one for her first. It went together pretty quickly.
To prepare for printing I made a 4x6 (new) document in Photoshop and put two completed pages onto that document (each digi page page measures approx 2.5x3.5 so you can fit 2 on one 4x6 print) and uploaded them to Costco (who does awesome photo printing!!!), or print from your printer.
Since my name badges were a little bigger than my photo pages, I just cut some cardstock 3x4 inches and adhered the photo page to it and then just slid it into the name badge~easy peasy.
I am excited to give it to her when I see her on Saturday (she is in Italy with her family this week~LUCKY DOG!).
Feel free to email or leave me a comment if you have any questions on how to make one.
Enjoy the weekend!!!

I have been working on a surprise digi project (should be done by the end of the week...so stay tuned), hope it turns out like I have it envisioned in my head, LOL!
I saw this cute little (Easter) door hanger a while ago (designed by Andrea Walford), and since I forgot to make them for Easter...I thought I would make a Thank you one. It is pretty simple and comes together fast (my type of project), you can get the template here.
Supplies used (PTI unless noted): Floral Frenzy stamp set; Aqua Mist/Berry Sorbet/Whisper White (SU!) cardstock; Aqua Mist/Berry Sorbet/Fresh Snow ink; Scallop/Circle Punch (SU!); Stardust Stickles (Unknown)

Happy Friday Friends!!!
I am looking forward to a very long weekend...I took a few days off next week and don't have to be back to work until Thursday...lots of projects planned (including my ever growing ironing pike...*sigh*).
Last night Mike and I went to Sharon's high school graduation...can you believe that it rained???? (Crazy, since we live in the desert and don't usually have to worry about that!). It was a nice ceremony, and Sharon looked great (even with the wet hair she paid to have styled...poor girl!). There were 750 graduates...(I only had 89 in my graduating class). Here is the little ensemble I made for her...I cased the color scheme and layout from Dawn (she is such a talented stamper!). I just love her style and cute personality. I had some extra tins, so I put some $ inside and added a stamped band around to match the card. This color combo is really nice together (Ruby Red/Berry Sorbet), I am sure I will use it again...real soon:0)
Have a safe holiday weekend!!! Thanks for visiting!
Supplies used: (PTI unless noted): Life/Wedding Day stamp sets; Whisper White (SU!)/Berry Sorbet/Kraft (SU!) cardstock; Ruby Red/River Rock (SU!) ink; Ruby Red Grosgrain Ribbon; Scallop Punch (SU!); Button (unknown); Twine (SU!); White Gel Pen (SU!); Tin (Specialty Bottle)

I had a few moments to stamp yesterday (*happy face*), and have been wanting to use my PTI Aqua Mist and Lemon Tart together...I like the combo (really soft). I pulled out my Floral Frenzy set (one of my fav's) and came up with this card.
Ashley signed up for this...and I have to say it is pretty cool (she came over to show me some of the features). I am not sure if I can be that discipline...but I am gonna give it a try (since I am too busy with work, church and my class to make it to the meetings). I have become so lax over the past few months...but it is time to whip into shape (it is amazing the motivation you get when you start thinking about bathing suits...blah!).
I hope you have a fabulous Monday!
Supplies used (PTI unless noted): Floral Frenzy/Polka Dot Bkgrd (SU!); Aqua Mist/Lemon Tart/Whisper White (SU!); Aqua Mist/Lemon Tart ink; Aqua Mist Satin Dotted Ribbon; Scallop Punch/Circle Punch (SU!)

Happy Day!!! That is a perfect title for a Friday...don't ya think??

Yes...the weekend is finally here...yeah!! Here is my last digi post this week. Since Mother's Day is this Sunday I thought I would post my digi desktop (highlighting the mother's day kit and a picture of me and Josh, who's birthday is right near/on Mother's Day). You can grab one here for free. I really love the colors and elements from this kit...so of course I ended up buying it, LOL!
I told Ashley and Josh that for Mother's Day I wanted a photo shoot with the two of them...I realized that I don't have any recent pictures of them together...we will see how that photo shoot goes...maybe I will even get to scrap with my new kit.
We are celebrating Josh's 20th birthday this weekend (5/9)...I cannot believe that my favorite son is no longer a teenager~*gasp*!!!!! I am just glad that I am not aging*wink* Here is a picture of the cutie.
Happy Birthday Josh~ie!!!!!!
Enjoy today and have an Awesome weekend!!!

Another digi page to share today, as I continue to celebrating National Scrapbook Day (which was 5/2). I made this page as an application for a digi team (a little about me page). I thought this was way more exciting than a Word document *smile*
Hope you are having a great week so far...we are almost to the weekend!!

Sorry but it is gonna be another quick post today...I have been so busy this week with my class, work, regular stuff.
My step dad's birthday was yesterday. I have been calling him "Grouch" for a few years now, he isn't always grouchy, LOL! But occasionally he is...and I don't let him get away with it! I really cannot remember when it started, but it is kind of a joke between the two of us...he calls me Grouch-ette.
I recently purchased this stamp set (Licence Plate by Stampology) at Michael's, and immediately knew I was going to personalize a card for Grouch. He called me to let me know he got a kick out of the card...SCORE!!!
Enjoy the weekend!!!
Supplies used (SU! unless noted): License Plate stamp set (Stampology); Whisper White/Basic Black/Brilliant Blue cardstock; Basic Black/Brilliant Blue ink; Ribbon (unknown)
