Laugh. CREATE. Smile.


In the same vein as yesterday’s post, here’s another layout highlighting my kids’ learning and creativity. The chalkboard in the picture is one I played with as a girl- and now my kids get to play with it!
Since we’re playing with an “was once old, but is new again” theme, I browsed my scraps again and layered them to form somewhat of a visual triangle. I also mixed some “new” 6×6 sheets of patterned paper in there, too. And, by “new”, I mean fresh from the paper pad, uncut and waiting to be used.
The laugh, create, smile stamp has been in my stash for quite some time; I’m pretty sure it came from the dollar bins at Michaels. The poinsettia and leaves are “new” goodies, while the original rub-on has been in my stash for quite some time. All the stamping and sequins- yeah, they’re all new-to-me goodies.
How would you mix new and old?
Join me on Monday for a bit of a change of pace. I’ve been thinking about adding more storage to my haven, so turned to my Pinterest boards to “pick” the next installment of storage apparatuses. As I was browsing, I realized I’ve already implemented a few of the ideas found on my boards- with my own twist. Join me for a “their version-my version” blog post of some neat craft storage ideas!
