February “Love Letters” Printable

February is right around the corner with all it’s pinks, reds, hearts and of course chocolate. Growing up I LOVED February for just this reason… Valentines Day. I can still see a visual of me sitting on the bus with my box of valentines ready to be handed out to my classmates. I also remember making valentine boxes out of shoeboxes and paper plates and hang for all your friends to fill with cards. Then I became a teenager and a young adult and experienced having a NON-romantic boyfriend during Valentines and I remember breaking up with this boyfriend because he did absolutely NOTHING for this special date meant for LOVE. I also remember working in an office environment feeling less love because everyone else in the office received a large bouquet of flowers and my desk sat blah with NO flowers, chocolate or love notes. Now that I’m older and wiser (wink, wink) I do not put so much emphases on receiving Valentines to make me feel important or loved. Now, I enjoy the hearts and all the pinks and reds for the fun and LOVE of it all. So in the midst of the season to spread love I wanted to share one of my girls “Love Letters” with you. Print on sticker sheet or cardstock and cut! ENJOY!! Happy February! Happy Hearts and Happy Valentines Day! ~ Rebecca Hoot

Junk Journal your Christmas Series No.3~ Nostalgic Additions

Welcome back to Junk Journal Your Christmas Video series number 3. In this video I show you different ways to add nostalgic memories and document about Christmas past. I love telling stories of loved ones and how we celebrated Christmas in the past. I am including two free printables below to use in your journal, they are of scanned in vintage hankies.

Now, let’s talk about the remainder of the Journal your Christmas series. In the upcoming videos I want to talk photos, embellishments and daily numbers.  I had planned on creating one video showing embellishments, but I think I will create a series of short quick videos. I have ideas to make wands, bookmarks, tassels, and junk bows. Let the Merry Making begin!

Summer Journaling~ Week One Choosing your Journal

 

Hello! Hope everyone had a great Sunday and Mother’s Day! Here is central Texas we already have had extremely warm days and they will not stop now through October. Usually by the time mid-July through early September we are indoors in the air conditioning trying not to melt. However, I love welcoming summer through journaling! It’s a time for family, relaxing, taking vacations and really getting memories on paper. This year we are planning more staycations and looking to visit different museums, festivals and events close to home. I’m really looking forward to exploring and having new adventures. Similar to what I created at Christmas, I wanted to create a mini video series about Summer Journaling. So welcome to the first video in the Summer Journaling video series . I thought it would be fun to share some of my techniques and maybe inspire you. This series will include 6 videos to be posted on Sunday evenings, CST. In this video, I talk about past scrapbooks and journals I have used and what I plan to use this year. Let me know if you have any questions or I would love to hear how you are planning and documenting your summer!

Thanks for stopping by!

Documenting Daily Life in my Happy Planner~ January 2018

Hello! One of my goals for the New Year is to start blogging, I use to blog ALOT about 3-4 years ago and I really miss it. I loved posting craft projects, places I’ve visited and blogging is where I discovered my love for creating art canvases. Today I want to talk about how I plan to document / scrapbook the everyday using a large Happy Planner. I absolutely LOVE scrapbooking and document life using pictures, papers, paint and all the fun creative media. I have used the concept from Project Life to take a photo a day and sometimes it happens and sometimes not, but I’m thrilled to have January complete. Here are the layout pages:
January Introduction Page

What’s fun about the Happy Planner is it has a place for important dates, plans, and current events or what is currently happening at the beginning of each month.
Week One~ January 1-7

Surprisingly ,I didn’t take as many photos this week, I think is was due to the fact I started a new job which requires a hour commute to and from Austin and having symptoms from CEDAR fever! UGH!
Week Two~ January 8-14

We celebrated my daughter Brazos’ birthday this week and quite possibly we celebrated the entire week! This week was the start of Girl Scout Cookie Season and starting and finishing a Science Fair Project.
Week Three~ January 15-21

This was such a cold week, I used paper snowflakes punched out from a Daphne’s Diary Magazine and added twine with a sparkle snowflake to add a bit of dimension. Love that I took lots of photos this week!
Week Four~ January 22-28

This was the week I had the flu..wah! It was awful! However, my sister was looking through old photo slides for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary and she sent me all these fun photos from when we were kids, so I added them into this weekly layout.
That’s a wrap for January. I hope to film a process video soon for documenting in my Happy Planner, so stay tuned!

Documenting LIFE – Index Card System

Last year I purchased this set of “Journal index cards” from Tisa Creations. I decided this would be my journaling system for 2016 and each day I write a journal bit and add washi, die cuts and pictures. This has really helped me in filling the documenting and scrapbooking desire in my heart passion. HOWEVER I am still working on pictures and how to add them more to this process.
