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,

Shoppe Newness!

It has been a while since I’ve had the time to work in my shoppe, but I promised myself that I would focus primarily on my family over the last few months.

Between the Holidays, my son’s wedding and family in and out of town, I didn’t want to miss a moment, and I’m so grateful I did, so many wonderful memories!

But now it’s back to business!

These “mid-Century Children’s Books” ephemera packs are just the beginning!

I took a break, but my brain didn’t, and I have quite a few “Themed” ephemera pack ideas waiting in the wings!

Actually, if you have any ideas for ephemera packs you’d like to see, I’d love to hear about them!

And, I’m happy to say that my art journal inventory has dwindled quite a bit over the last few months. I can’t wait to get started building that back up again!

If your interested in seeing the full new line, 12 in all, follow this link to my shoppe.

So stay tuned for more fun stuff in my shoppe!

And as always,

Thank you for stopping in,

Have a great weekend,

~Patty

 

 

 

 

 

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,

Back So Soon?! …you betcha!

Under the heading of “reasons/excuses” in my last blog post as to why I haven’t been keeping up with my blog is the amount I post to Instagram, the redundancy factor. But, I’m also realizing that not everybody likes IG or FaceBook (I’m not a fan of FB). So, whether or not I post to IG or FB will no longer have anything to do with my blog posts.

That being said…

Here’s a little something I worked on last night.

I felt as if all I did over the weekend is play “catch-up”! I needed a little art time to counter balance the steady onslaught of To Do lists! In other words, some Me Time!

This vintage post card has been making the rounds from shelf to shelf for a few months now, I just wasn’t sure what to do with it. My usual M.O. is to stick it in a container of some sort and forget about it.

The problem was, it has all this wonderful writing on the back and I didn’t want to just glue it into a journal willy nilly and loose all those memories. I think this card is from 1910, it’s a little faint.

Luckily for all concerned, I just happened to find my photo corners the other day, so problem solved! And now somebody else’s keepsake has found a new home.

It occurred to me that underneath this card would be an excellent, secret journaling spot, that may or may not ever happen.

I would really appreciate your input on the Instagram/FaceBook issue. How do you feel about these social media outlets? Do you prefer a blog? Or all three? Please let me know in the comments. Personally, I feel as if blogs are a little less noisy and a lot more friendly!

Thank you for the visit,

Have a great day!
