my creative space

A tour of my creative space is up on the Cocoa Daisy blog today. 

You can find it HERE.


ice cream scoop chore chart

I made an easy, fun chore chart/reward system for my kids. Its just cute patterned paper, cut into ice cream scoops, some triangle shapes for the cones, and cherries for the top. 

I laminated everything and a white 12 x12 sheet for the background. 

 Here are the "chores" I taped onto the back of the scoops. I didn't laminate them on because I want to be able to change them when needed.  

Here is the process video with all the details. 
Thanks for watching!


Cali Travelers journal

Last month my family and I went on an amazing vacation to California. We went to Sea World for the first time, explored the tide pools at Crystal Cove, and had a blast hanging out at our resort at Huntington Beach. 

Here is my traveler's journal in its cute cover at the beach. I got it from The Freckled Fawn. 

For the cover, I made a collage of my favorite pictures from the trip. I used Picasa on the computer. 

We love Huntington Beach! 

3 cute boys

Sea World was SOO FUN!

Belmont Park was the coolest amusement park! 

Here is a video flip through of the whole traveler's journal: 

Thanks for watching! 

water color mother's day layout

I am the luckiest mama of these 3 cute boys.

I made a mother's day layout with a cluster of 3 photos of us. 

I added these fun flowers that I fussy cut out of a paper from Bella Blvd. It was in my June Cocoa Daisy kit.  

I added splashes of water color to tie it all together. It was SO much fun! 

Watch the whole process here:

south beach

The first week of May we went to San Diego and Long Beach, California. This kit came at the perfect time to document the trip. It was such a memorable trip with my husband and 3 little boys. 

The ocean is so fun with these wild boys.

Sea World was AMAZING! We all loved it. 

I made this little journaling card with bits and pieces of my favorite papers. 

We spent most of our time at Huntington Beach.  

Here is a page from my travelers notebook. I will do a whole other blog post about my notebook. 

I also made this layout of my sister and I. 

For lots of details and tips, watch the process video below. 

Also, I made an unboxing video this month where I show all the goodies in the Cocoa Daisy box. See below:
