Consequence spinner

Pin It

We have been having some behavior issues and after seeing this spinner on Pinterest I knew i needed to make one for our house, using my scrapbooking skills.  So I got to work in Photoshop and came up with this...


I used this new kit  UnPerfect from Tracie Stroud Designs and Kami of Ziggle Scraps. It was so fun to make and get creative again -- and bonus that it will make life easier (hopefully). I just finished it last night and we already had to use it this morning!

What do you do for consequences?

hi! magnetic greeting card.

Pin It


I actually exist still!  It has been awhile since I have been crafty but I have two projects – the other I will post next.  We have been busy getting adjusted to having two girls in school, me volunteering more and the girls adding extra curricular activities.


These Walls from Laura Banasiak
Lamination Film
E6000 adhesive
Photo Squares
Font on card - Traveling Typewriter
Font on preview - WM_Kamikazi from WM[squared]

After printing the images I simply cut the hi bubble out and laminated it (since I wanted to have it double as a magnet).  Once laminated I attached it to a magnet with E6000 craft glue.  Then attached it to the card with a photo split so it can be removed once the recipient gets the card.  I usually use foam adhesive to give the dimension but you can see that the magnet achieves this.

{Project Life} Week 18 & Digital Link Up

Pin It

Hope that everyone had a great National Scrapbook Day – we were camping for the weekend but I still had a great weekend!  My scrapbooking time will be increasing (hopefully) and I will be able to post more of my pages here.  While I do not plan to have a set blog posting schedule now that I am not designing I will continue to post my Project Life pages each Tuesday and hope that you will continue to link up  your digital pages for others to see as well.  If you would like to see more posts from me in the future you can check out my Shelf Reliance blog – – right now we are having a fabulous sale on the Harvest, water bottles and vegetable package!

Here are some of my pictures for this week – no pages yet since I was camping and my computer is still something I am getting used to it isn’t as easy for me to create a page yet!

And can I just say that I now love Live Writer even more – I just found a way to add multiple pictures to my posts at once!!!!  I simply dragged them from my drop box folder and said to put them directly in the post!  So exciting when you discover neat tricks! {I may be the last to know this but just in case!} Oh and if you don’t use Live Writer already – you should!

Here is to hoping I get my actual pages done sometime after I wake up today! In the mean time – link up your pages!

Here is the first of my pages …


Uses – Secret Stash – One Life products (papers, frames, flairs)
Chelle’s Creations – In the Pocket faux pocket pages – coming soon to a store near you (LOL!)

Welcome to the DSA Blog Train! You should have arrived from  Down This Road Designs -
If you missed my post on Thursday – you should check it out to see it in it’s entirety but… a little recap.

1) I am closing my shop on May 9th – my templates and other designs will no longer be available after that date – so head over to my store at Scrap Orchard and grab them up now.

2) My store is going to have a bunch of $1 items – 20 to be exact today and tomorrow – again see THIS post for all the deets.

3) I will be continuing to create pages and will continue my Project Life Digital link up on Tuesdays – so if you create digital Project Life pages – come and party with us on Tuesdays.

4) I will be creating more, spending time with family and working on building my Shelf Reliance business. So if you like to eat… check out my site, or even better sign up for my newsletter and find out about all the great specials we offer!

Now… onto the freebie you are here for.


Sorry gals I am trying to get the PNGs for this but after my desktop crashed last Saturday I am using my laptop with CS5 (was using PSE) and some things I just do not know how to do yet!

I don’t have an example for summer but this banner template would be cute for Spring or Summer!


Your next stop is at my friend Laura Banasiak’s blog -

If you have missed a stop… check out the forum here for a list of all the stops.

Once you are done with the train – head to Scrap Orchard for a Saturday FULL of games, challenges, MIS (Speed Scraps) and more!
