Two Simple Cards for The 100 Day Project

#the100dayproject #clean and simple cards #cardmaking #gratitude #grateful

Yesterday I was all set to grab a notecard to write a thank you note to my Mom for my birthday gift and scrumptious birthday cake. But then, I thought, why send a store bought card when I could spend a few minutes and make a handmade card.

So I did.

I only intended to make one card, but after making one, I had some scraps left...

...and I made this card with those scraps. Using the little bit of the glittered yellow floral cardstock and the kraft paper strip, I popped it on the card and then I used a die cut tag and some bakers twine from The Twinery to finish off my second clean and simple card.

The 100 Day Project

#the100dayproject #100dayproject #the 100 day project #scrapbooking #mini book #mini album #memorykeeping

I'm joining in with thousands of other creatives around the world in #the100dayproject, find out more here. My "plan" is to be creative, just for me, working on some sort of crafty project that needs attention. It might be me painting the trim and door in our laundry, finishing up my #whereistand mini book from 2 years ago, documenting our story in some fashion or even relaxing with my balls of yarn and crochet hook.

I'm not tying myself down to one project or idea or medium. I have a ton of projects that need completion or attention of some sort that always gets pushed to the back burner because I create all day long as part of my job as a small business owner. Sure, I love what I do, but I sorely miss being creative at the spur of a moment just for me and my little family.

The project kicks off today and you can keep up with my projects, and progress, on Instagram @iloveitallshop where I'll also be using the #100craftydays_iloveitallshop so I can keep myself accountable and maybe even make it all the way to 100!

I printed out this photo some time ago and never did anything with it. It's from our vacation to Sanibel Island last year. I love taking photos from behind, when no one knows they're in my viewfinder.

My journaling is a sort of life lesson and love letter to my husband. I don't know that my father would have roamed the beach, up and down and up again, with me looking for cool shells and sea glass. But Gordon does and that makes me love him all the more.

I had planned to use this little journal for a Day in the Life project, but I never seem to able to make it through a day remembering to take photos, so I decided that I would just use my Today journal to tell some of our everyday Today stories, not necessarily from the same day.

Because my mini book {I'm using this one, there's only one left!} has a 4x6 orientation and my photo is 6x4, I had to be creative and find a way to make it work. Luckily, I was able to split the photo in two pieces without losing the effect of the photo.

Wondering how I added a photo to my bound album? Check out my tutorial on adding pages to your spiral bound mini books here. The pink paper was glued to the reverse side of the photo before I punched the holes and added the photo to my mini book. I didn't want to have just a back side of a photo staring at me. And now, I have another surface to tell a new story.
