Upcycled Printers Tray

So I had a fun project up last week with the Xyron swap, it is an upcycled printers tray. I used brand new Jillibean Soup "You Make Miso Happy" collection to create it. Here is a pic:



and here is a detailed shot closer of a few of the compartments:


This is a fairly easy project to complete, just pick up a vintage printers tray at a flea market and grab a favorite collection pack. Then you build it like you would a project life pocket page, just measure each compartment and make a background then add some photos and embellishments. Also keep in mind that these make wonderful gifts, and well Christmas is just around the corner! Have you ever made a project like this? If so I would love to see it, feel free to share in comments below!


In case you are interested in the products I used, I have added affiliate links below:

First Day of 3rd Grade/ Creative Scrappers Sketch Challenge

So I have given up on trying to catch up on my blog and decided to restart with current events. A big one occurred last week with Gabriel's return to school, as a 3rd grader no less! He looked very handsome and a little too grown up...


I decided to scrap a school theme  page for fun and join in on a sketch challenge over at Creative Scrappers blog.

Here is the sketch that is up this month, (go to the link above if you want to play along):


So I flipped the sketch a quarter turn and created the layout below:
Materials Used: NEW-Jillibean Soup- Shades of Color collection, papers, peapods and coordinating stickers



I thought this collection worked very well for a school layout! I loved these two photos most, he has the sweetest smile in the first and was still not too cool to hold Daddy's hand on the way to school. Priceless moments that I am so happy to have captured,  he is growing up too fast.

I hope your school year starts with lots of smiles too! Have a great week!

Happy NSD!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day! Just wanted to share that Jillibean Soup is celebrating NSD too including sketches, challenges and giveaways, check them out here.



For the event I created a layout based on this sketch by Kristine Davidson:

This photo of my son just makes me laugh, such an indicator of his playful spirit. He is a little crazy, no idea where he gets it from, 😏.



Here is the photo by itself, so that you get the full effect:




Enjoy your weekend!
