Moments Inked Newsletter...

If you follow my blog, you know I have said time and time again....I love making lists.  I always have several lists going at one time and over the years have used a bullet system for my lists.  I love to be organized and love the feeling of checking things off the list.  

I have seen the use of Bullet Journals over the years, but have been a little intimidated because of all the beautiful ways people add in hand drawings and hand lettering.  I saw my friend Linda's journal this last weekend and she inspired me to try.  So today's post is for all the bullet journaling newbies (or wannabe's like me!)  The great thing is, with all the Monthly Moments stamps and dies, bullet journaling can be even easier!

All you need for your Moments Inked binders is THIS adorable graph paper to get started, along with your favorite pen!

This first page is a to do list using stamps from the Posted Stamp Set.

I used a sharpie pen and added in the check boxes with a ruler and another arrow stamp from the Posted Stamp set, as well.

This next page was a super simple goal page.  I used the Monthly Moments: Year Round dies to create the title on this page and then added in some more check boxes and a list....

If you search "Buller Journal" on Pinterest, you will find lots of posts on how to add hand drawn details to your journals.  I had to give this gratitude banner a shot....

Last, I added in an actual week layout.  This was super simple to draw up and of course, as I keep learning, I am finding more and more ways to decorate these pages.

A card for no reason....

It has been a LONG time since I sat down and made a card for no reason.  Nothing due, no deadline, just a card!  This last weekend I was lucky enough to host a craft weekend with Amy Kolling and we had 15 ladies come down from all over the US and even 2 from Canada!  It was a great time and they defiantly sparked my craft mojo!  I was lucky enough to borrow these Birch Press cover plates from my sweet friend, Tracy, and I had to cut out several sets.  The first set I cut out did cut out all the way and it landed in the trash pile....but then I looked closer and had to make this....


The top 2 cuts are white yardstick, then some Aqua Mist and the card base is Soft Stone, all from PTI.  


I used this sentiment from Simon Says and cut it out with some foam tape too, for dimension.


The detail in these dies and how they looked stacked up, is amazing!  


A big thank you to Tracey, for letting me use these I need to add them to my Christmas list! :)

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Hope you have a great weekend!

Right at Home...

Stoppin in today with a quick card using the new sets Deerest Friends and Friendly Fox from Right at Home....


I did a quick Copic airbrush in the background to make the grass and sky.  I added in the grass stamps for a little more detail.  Last, I stamped, colored and fussy cut the main images and added them all with foam tape for some dimension.  


Head on over to the Right at Home blog to see more of this Fall Release.  Thanks so much for stopping in!

Holiday Hugs....

I have a fun post today for Papertrey Ink!  Today the DT girls are showcasing the new Make it Market Mini Kit: Holiday Hugs.  This adorable new collection can create fun little gifts. 


I stamped the snowman and then die cut his hat, gloves and tags, all out of the paper collection that comes with the set.  I added in his arms so he was "hugging" the mason jar full of chocolate.  I tied on the coordinating tag with some twine to finish it off.  


Here is a shot of Heather Nichols project, sitting with my project.  We are together at a craft weekend and thought it would be fun to share our projects side by side.  Check out her adorable Santa....


And one more fun shot....Amy, me and Heather!  Its been fun to hang out and chat this weekend with these amazing girls!


Head on over to Nichole's blog and see what the rest of the girls have whipped up for today!  Thanks so much for coming by!
