START A 6 MONTH MAIN KIT OR PROJECT LIFE SUBSCRIPTION & GET A FREE COCOA DAISY GRAB BAG.
We had such a great response to our grab bag promotion last month that we thought we would do it again! Sign up for either a 6 month main kit subscription or our new Day in the Life Project Life kit and receive a free grab bag (while supplies last).
What is in a Grab Bag? Well, every month we have leftover bits and pieces from our kits and add ons and the Bunker is starting to get a little tight, so we have decided to create Grab Bags. Each Grab Bag will be filled with at least $20.00 worth of goodies from the last few month’s kits and add ons.We have two ways you can get one:
We’ve put together a sweet collection of products for you this coming June! Candy Shoppe features treats from companies like Webster’s Pages, Elle’s Studio, and Simple Stories. Add in a few very fun exclusives, like a scrumptous letterpress card and some delightfully tasty Evalicious flair, and you’ve got the most delicious way to start off June. The best part? Candy Shoppe won’t break any diet rules, you can enjoy it guilt free!
And because it’s so hard to pick one favorite variety, you won’t want to miss out on our add ons Pixie Stix, Candy Dots, and Gum Drops and the awesome Day in the Life: June kit. They offer just the right bit of extra sweetness you’ll be craving after you see what we’ve done for June.
As the Design Team creates, watch for the sneaks we’ll be posting on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and our message boards over the next couple of weeks. Be sure you’re following us to get all the goods!
Kits and adds on go on sale to subscribers May 28th at 9 PM EST. Our general public purchase date will be the 1st of June at 12 midnight.

Hi everyone, Kim here with a little bit about my design process today. Normally you will find me using some sort of frames or shapes such as baroque or Victorian shapes and even photo frames on my layouts. Since I started scrapbooking I’ve always loved frames and finding new ways to use them. For one of my gallery layouts I used one of the shaped frames I have in my stash as a layering element. I keep a stash of different shapes and things that I can use for future layouts and cards.
For this layout I chose a elegant square shape and used strips of patterned paper to cover it with. Sometimes I want a sort of ombre look and other times I keep it rather random or use some sort of scraps as one of the strips. I find that painted and water-colored papers work great for this also. I constantly paint and doodle so some of these little things come in handy when trying to add that something special to a project.
Above you can see a step by step process of how I make one of the elements I like to use in my layouts. Every scrapper should have a handful of personal elements that they like to use on layouts. I have to be a pretty fast scrapper because my time is limited so for me using certain layering elements help get my projects done quickly!
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out a little about my design process!
Hi everyone! Jaime Warren with you today to share a few of my favorite editing tips & tricks using Instagram! I love Instagram, not only is it an excellent community, it is perfect for scrapbooking those every day moments. If you are a fellow Project Lifer, then, Instagram is perfect! I use Instagram a lot more often than I use my regular camera – especially on vacations or camping trips when we are hiking trails or where my big, expensive camera just isn’t logical. I can simply whip out my phone and capture those every day moments of our lives. I have found that I scrap a lot more of our typical days this way.
There are tons of editing apps available to use on your photos, many of which let you transfer your edited image straight into Instagram. Here are a few of my favorites:
Pic Tap Go
I use Pic Tap Go 99% of the time, and, if I have a series of photos that I want compiled into one Instagram photo, I use Diptic. Here are a few examples of images I have edited with Pic Tap Go & Diptic:
You can also edit your photos in Instagram by applying one of the several filters that they provide!
So, what do you do with all of those every day Instagram shots? Print them! You can choose to have them printed and mailed to you from companies such as Postal Pix, CanvasPop, Prinstagram and Blurb. Or, you can do like I do and print them at home. I currently use a Canon Selphy printer, but, you can print from any printer! When using a regular printer simply size your images to a 2×3 or smaller if you wish. They will print out to nearly the original size of an Instagram image. I love creating a polaroid look with my Instagram photos by trimming the top and sides nice and narrow and then leaving a nice chunk of white at the bottom. The Canon Selphy allows you to print them automatically in a smaller, 2×3 format, or if you wish, you can print them larger, directly from your phone. These sizes make them perfect for Project Life, or, if you scrap small photos like I do, for your pages! They are also the perfect size for mini albums.
If you aren’t a member of Instagram yet, then definitely join the fun! I love the close knit community that Instagram provides and I find myself there a lot more than Facebook or Twitter. And don’t forget to follow Cocoa Daisy for all of the sneaks and fun!
