Hi Everyone!!!

I have lots of exciting things to share with you today!!!

New!!! Templates & Simple Squares…

The return of a designer…

and a new Freebie Desktop Calendar for February…

so hang in there with me.

First Gina has been busy making some more Life in a Box Templates and Simple squares to go with them.  They are amazing…

Here are the Template packs they are available in both 8.5×11 and 12×12



She also made 3 new packs of Simple Squares…One with quotes, one for holidays, and one with the months of the year…

Even more exciting is the return of Gina’s Mom, Patricia Christensen.

She loved the Simple squares so much she had to join in the fun.

Here is her pack of Simple Squares


Have you had a chance to play with this new system?

It is so easy to use.  I was able to do 6 pages over the course of 2 days…that is all while running after 2 kids.  I love how versatile the templates are.  There are so many options.

This is my 4th year attempting a 365/Life type project.  I completed my 365 book for 2010 using Gina’s Sweet and Simple Pages.  I love them.  I actually just got it printed at Christmas I was so excited to finally get to hold it in my hands…

2011 was a hard year and I have some of it done, but it will never really be a true 365 book because I was pregnant and so sick that one month I only took maybe half a dozen pictures.

For 2012 I approached it as more of a project Life instead of focusing on taking a picture everyday…there were some days there were no pictures…but others had lots…I am not completely finished with that book either, but I have the pictures in place on most of the pages and just need to go back and get the journaling done.

This year again I am approaching it as Project life again…there will be days with no pictures, and others that have lots of them.  With Life in a Box it is so easy to have multiple pictures or even a whole page for one day.  I am thinking for mine I will likely have whole pages for holidays and Birthdays this year.

It is completely customizable…you can make it work for what ever type of project you are working on.

If you still love the Sweet and Simple kits or the Every{day} Life kits or even the Tiny 10’s…they all coordinate beautifully with new Simple Squares.

If there are any of them you missed you might want to go check out the $1 Deals and $2 Deals sections out.

I am going to share a few pages from the Gallery to help inspire you…

We are going to start something new this month…There will be one fayout each month picked to be featured on the blog…if your layout is picked at the Featured Layout you will get a $5 coupon to the shop.

Our First Winner is Igameau she has been diligent in posting her pages even when there has not been much activity around here. And her newest layouts are just beautiful.  Igameau look for a PM soon with your coupon.

We will pick one more layout this month so go show off your pages in the Gallery.

Here are Igameau’s last two pages uploaded to the gallery.  I love how she chose to make her background black, and also notice how she is documenting the weather for each day…I love that.



These pages are by Miranda she has recently rejoined the CT’s and her pages are amazing.  She chose to use the Craft background and embellished her pages with things out of the Life 365-2009 and the ‘Every (day) life’ kits



and I am going to show you 2 of my pages just because I chose to use a different background….and one of the Tiny 10’s to embellish with.
