A few goodies and a cool new app

While the boys were doing yard work this weekend, Sydney and I snuck out of the house and hit up our local scrapbook store.  I've had my eye on a few items, but I didn't have the patience to order them online.   There is nothing like walking out of a store with product in hand!  I'm loving the look of little extras in my project life layouts.  Here's some of the goodies I picked up.
K&Co Smash Pads (blank and Quotes)
Amy Tangerine Mixtape
Several different cardstock papers (see below)
Jillibean Soup Journaling Sentiments
My mind's Eye Label Stickers
Love, Love, Love how these are all printed up with journal blocks that are 4x6 and 3x4.  Perfect size to work with Project Life layouts.  Super excited to use these.  I found that several manufacturers had these 12x12 sheets.  I picked up a few different themes (travel, Christmas, everyday.) from Jillibean Soup, Teresa Collins, Echo Park, Simple Stories, and Crate Paper.  I love my Turquoise edition from Becky Higgins, but let's face it...It's November...I've been doing my best with the same designs for 11 months and I'm getting a little bored.

I posted last week about some of my favorite project life blogs I visit.  I gathered up some links for simplicity and put them together on a separate page for easy reference and inspiration.


Speaking of Project Life eye candy...big announcement over at Becky Higgins' blog!  Yay!  A new creative team has been put together and I'm so excited for the inspirational projects that will be coming.

Finally, I just downloaded a new app for my phone yesterday.  
It's called diptic and you can create collages right from your phone.  I used it to create the photos at the top of the post.  Kinda cool.  (and only $.99)  Seriously, I'm obsessed with my phone.  Just ask my husband.

I just picked up those Jillybean Soup labels the other day. I just started working at an awesome scrapbook store here in CA so I get to see all the new goodies come in. I also love that app, and instagram too! Those are the coolest. Also, I use scrapbookpictures.com to print out my diptic and instagram photos. Very cheap and great quality!
