Another Page In My “Meadow Green” Art Journal

I’m really enjoying having space to journal in my art journals again. Sometimes I leave the journal spots empty so I have a place to go when the journaling bug bites.

The little card at the right slips into the decorated envelope there. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a veggie garden feel here.

And the fact that I’m using some of my sweet happy mail gifties makes my heart sing!

I made a process video of this page on my YouTube Channel if you’d like to listen to my prattling…I mean commentary, head on over.

I’ve decided to ramp up my video making, so the “Another Video Up!…” title might get a bit redundant, so I’m going to start announcing it within the posts.

Well, I hope you like my little art journal, I have about eight more pages to go!

As always,

Thank you for stopping by,

Talk to you soon,

The Last Page in My “Inky” Journal

So, the other day whilst filming my “Memory Journal Tag Page” vid, I figured since I had the camera set up, I might as well film another video.

If you have been following me for a while, this journal will be pretty familiar…oh, the angst!

Well, I’m happy to say that this is the last page of this journal! I’m even happier to say that I have had so much fun working in it, I’m making another one. A couple of people asked me to make a video of the page painting/inking process, so that will be happening soon also.

I had a tough time with my “Quack Grass” piece, but it was one of those things I couldn’t let go of, and I’m super happy it’s finally found a home.

Yes, I get attached to small pieces of paper…but you knew that, right!?

I left a little journaling spot on the last page to jot down a few thoughts. This journal and I have not been fast friends, so a little farewell note is definitely called for.

So, goodbye little journal!

I hope that you will take some time to visit my YouTube Channel and check out my latest video. Please let me know what you think!

Until next time,

Thanks for stopping by,

Have a great week,

Video Up! “Quote Journal 2, the Sequel”

Here is the second part of the long, long, “Quote Journal” video I made last week. Apparently I am no longer shy about chatting on my videos, I figure I can edit it out…or not.

Anyway, if your interested in seeing how this page came together , pop on over to my YouTube Channel!

Of course it would be super awesome if you subscribed to my channel!

Let me know what you think!

See you soon,

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a great week,

YouTube Video Up!

Yay! Another video finished and posted on my YouTube channel!

It was so much fun to make, I actually made two!

I was having so much fun that the video stretched into an hour. No amount of editing was going to make an impact, so I split into two.

“Quote Journal 2, the Sequel” is ready to go and I’ll be uploading it some time next week!

In the mean time, if your interested in seeing the process video of this page spread, head on over to my YT channel!

As always,

Thanks for stopping in,

Have an awesome week,

Card Making With TheResetGirl’s Latest Mini Collections!

This may take a while, so you may want to grab a beverage, or a snack…or a nap…

It all started with a trip to the Puppy Parlor. I had two hours to kill and was 30 minutes from home, so time for a little shopping!

Lately, I don’t buy things unless I need them, downsizing into a house half the size of our current one will be daunting enough as it is! But when I saw this mini photo box at Hobby Lobby for 50% off $2.99…

…ya, just sayin’!

So, while I was killing time wandering around, it occurred to me that this little box would make a perfect greeting card holder. I have plastic ones, but they are less than inspiring to look at. And look how cute this is, pink polka dots, need I say more!

The little, metal label holder was on the side, so I moved it to the front, then decorated the lid and the label with Mandy Ford‘s, T.R.G. mini collection, “Happy At Home”.

I made these little dividers from a recipe box I also purchased that day. They may or may not work as true blue organizers, but who cares, they’re cute.

I used a mash-up of “Treasured“, “Adored“, “Stamp Lovin‘”, “Vintage Ledger Paper“, and of course “Happy At Home“. Use the links to get a closer look at these collections.

I had so much fun mixing and matching the phrases to make my own sayings. These will be perfect to send to someone that needs a little pick-me-up.

Truth be told, I had to do some pretty strategic decor placement on these. My printer decided to be a brat, and my prints all came out with streaks. But, I actually enjoyed the challenge, it’s fun to mix things up a bit, and I learned some new tricks.

This is the Birthday Card group. I wasn’t sure how I was going to pull off making Birthday cards, but then I remembered all these little cupcakes and that cake, so cute!

Seriously, I didn’t want to stop making these! They were so much fun! It will be so nice to just grab a card when I want to say “Thank You” or just “Hello” without having to drop everything to make a card. This is one of those things I always say I’m going to do, but never get around to it.

Sometime soon, I’ll write a post about my card layering process, let me know if that sounds like fun.


Until then, here’s an awesome coupon for TheResetGirl.com/shop

And as always,

Thank you for dropping in,

Have a great weekend,
