My 2015 word

Hi there, today I wanted to share my word that I had chosen for this new year. This year I chose the word simplify. I chose this word for numerous reasons but most of all to just make my life easier. I always like to document my word for the year in my first page in my PL album. This year I wanted to really have my word stand out and make it special, so I added some custom flair badges from The Crafty Pickle. I even designed the simplify badge and Taniesa was awesome to create it for me. And I have to say I love how it turned out.  Below are the two cards I created to spotlight my word Simplify for the year 2015. With the first card I added the Simplify flair badge and wanted that to be the focal point of the card. In the second card I added the 2015 flair badge to emphasize the year, then I added my journaling on why I chose my word.

So whats your word for the year 2015? I would love to hear how you came to choose your word and how you plan on documenting it. How would you like to win your own word flair badge along with a 2015 flair badge. All you need to do is leave me a comment by Saturday Jan 25th at 10:00 pm. I will then draw a winner on Sunday Jan 26th. Also during this time Taniesa is offering 15% off purchase of $10 or more using coupon code TCP2015 now though Sunday Good luck and I can't wait to hear your 2015 word. 

Until  next time,

Shake it Off..

I totally love this catchy song from Taylor Swift ,so much in fact that I created a PL card using it as my inspiration. I created the card in my Silhouette software then I printed it out and used the print and cut feature to cut the card out for me. I then backed it with some black card stock and added the music note flair from The Crafty Pickle as a final touch. I love how it gives it some bling with the silver glitter.

So remember to keep on cruising and don't stop grooving....

Here is a little freebie for you.

December Daily Update

Hi there, today I wanted to share a few cards I made for my December  Daily. First up I wanted to share how I was documenting my days of the month in my album.
As soon as I seen these flair in The Crafty Pickle shop I  knew I had to use them in my album. I love the silver glitter and the fun font. These Elegant December  Real  flair add the perfect touch to my pages even with some sparkle.

I also made some cards to add in my album using more of the fabulous flair found in The Crafty Pickle. First up is the card I made to document the return of our Elf on the Shelf Elvis Parsley.  The Personalized Elf flairs are perfect and I love how you can get them personalized with your elf's name.
I also used some of the new Christmas Holiday sequins on this card as well.
Up next is a card that was inspired by my album that I am suing for my December Daily. I totally fell in love with the burlap and rustic look of it. So I decided to make a card using burlap and one of the flair badges from the December button flair set.

And lastly, I had to make a card to document my love of Starbucks red cups. These red cup flair buttons was a special request and I think they turned out fabulous.

I have to say that I am loving all the flair buttons that I have received from The Crafty Pickle  and  how I can personalize my album and cards. It makes this album so much more special. Please visit The Crafty Pickle and remember that Taniesa takes special orders, so if you don't see it in the store, send her a message.

Don't forget to stop by The Crafty Pickle for me fabulous and creative ideas.

Its PSL season...

Hi there, its Treasa here today to share a Project Life card that I made using some of the new Autumn sequin mix in The Crafty Pickle shop and a new flair badge that Taniesa created for wonderful fall season. I must confess that I absolutely love the fall, mostly because of the beautiful trees and the cooler weather but also because its "Pumpkin Season" and I love anything pumpkin and one of my most favorites are Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks. These things are fabulous and its like getting a mouthful of fall.
 As soon as I received the Autumn sequin mix and the PSl flair I knew I had to create a Project Life card to document my love of PSL.
Here is a close up of that wonderful PSL flair and some of the sequins from the Autumn mix.
I also used some of the paper from the Close to my Heart Pathfinding line. This collection is so perfect for fall and coordinates so well with the Cozy Fall button flairs in the shop. You can also find the Pathfinding collection in Taniesa's CTMH shop here.

Here's one last look at the gorgeous Autumn sequin mix in the shop.
Thank you for stopping by and go check out The Crafty Pickle shop and blog.
