So, let’s try this again!

I thought Etsy was running 25% off with free shipping. Turns out it’s 20% off w/free shipping!

But, I decided that those of you who follow my blog, or on facebook, should get a better deal!

 

So, if you use the coupon code PAJ25 at checkout, you will get 25% off with free shipping through Monday 11/26.

I have lots to choose from. Just hit the link to my shoppe in the sidebar, and “Bob’s your uncle!”

Thank you my friends!

Much Love,

~Patty

 

 

 

Listers Gotta List: Days 5 thru 13

It’s been a long time since I’ve used an ephemera collection, so I had forgotten how much fun it is, and convenient!

We are almost halfway through October’s “Listers Gotta List” challenge, and halfway into the month…where did it go!? I’m using “TheResetGirl’s” October collection “Little Things” throughout this challenge.

Days 5 & 6: I didn’t share much about this little insert before I started working in it. It’s made from 14 pieces of various colored card stock 8 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, stapled down the middle, folded in half,  then trimmed to a standard size insert, approx.  4 1/4″ x 8 1/4″.

Days 7 & 8: Playing around with the embellishments like these tags are one of my favorite pastimes. As you can see, I’ve been getting the ink stamps out again.

Days 9 & 10: Some lists are easier than others. I take a lot of road trips now, so day 9 was pretty easy.  I could have used more room for day 10, housework and organizing have been on my mind a lot lately.

Days 11, 12, & 13: Because I didn’t plan out the number of pages in this insert very well, I’m having to bunch three days onto a few of the pages. It worked out though, I knew that flower would come in handy, I don’t shop at dollar stores much.

Well, that’s the latest around here. It’s great to have the ListersGottaList challenge back again! If you are interested in any of the above, please follow the links I provided and have a look-see!

As always, thank you for stopping by,

Have a great week,

~Patty

 

Shoppe Newness

I’ve been beavering away in the shoppe this week, and wanted to share some of the highlights, and offer a 20% discount!

Here’s what’s new:

Sweet “Little Golden Book” art journals.

I try to buy the most vintage versions of these books, so a lot of these are from the 50’s. Hence, the “Well loved” look.

Some Granny Chic paper clips.

I try to make the backs of these cute, because of the page turning thing.

I went in a different direction with these art journals. They have a rustic, vintage look to them.

If you want to see more details of all this goodness, pop over to my shoppe by clicking the word shoppe, or the link in my sidebar.

Also, if you find something you can’t live with out, use the coupon code: CUSTOMERLOVE20 at check out and receive 20% off your entire purchase.

See you soon,

Gratitude Collage Journal “flip through”

A couple of weeks ago I announced on IG and FB, that I would be uploading a “flip through” video of my August gratitude journal, onto my YouTube channel. Then, I realized that it would be much simpler to take some photos and share them here, and I’m all about what’s easier these days! So, here goes…

Days 19 & 20

The usual suspects: playing card, postage stamps, various store bought ephemera bits, and washi tape. I try to tie my page spreads together in some way, with this one I thought the horses did the trick.

Days 21 & 22

A vintage summer theme here. On the page to the right, I used a technique I’ve been having a lot of fun with lately. I cut images from the same background paper then re-apply them randomly to the page. The three round pieces outlined with pencil were re-applied, it seems to give the page more depth.

Days 23 & 24

This is mostly a play with color. Some days I don’t get as much done, but I’m always grateful for evenings spent with my honey!

Days 25 & 26

One of my favorite things to do in my list journals is to find alternative ways to date them, I just used a circle stamp for the 26th. Also, I tried mirroring the grey with polka dots in the sticker over on the left, along with the flowers for a more cohesive look.

Days 27 & 28

Some fun memories of our visit to see my daughter and her family. I took loads of photos, but I prefer to use those in my Midori gratitude journal.

I was lucky to find a postage stamp with 28 cents postage on it for the date, and it added a nice pop of color!

Days 29 & 30

Nearing the end of my little journal. As you can see, I kind of threw these pages together. Monday, I was fighting a cold, by Tuesday it had won.

Day 31

And the end of this journal. A wonderful keepsake, but not necessarily something I want to do every month, just here and there throughout the year. I may try one of these quarterly, just to hit the highlights next time, that will be after the Holidays…

I can’t wait to start this years Holiday journal! Those are my all time favorites to make!

But until then, I may have to pull out some of my old Holiday journals to share on this blog since they all got lost on “ye olde blog”. Just to get some creative inspiration going! Sounds like fun!

Thanks once again for the visit,

See you soon,

~Patty
