Cellophane Bag Tags

In a few weeks my daughter will be turning four! she is growing up so fast! My oh my the time has just flown by so quickly.
She and I have had a great time discussing what kind of a birthday party she would like.

She finally decided on a princess theme. Once the theme was decided upon we immediately started making the invitations.(as you saw earlier on my blog)

After the invitation was complete my mind was being flooded with fun ideas for decorating and really bringing the princess theme to life.

One fun little detail I thought would be fun and give another personal touch was to do plain clear cellophane bags with a top to match her invitations.

I'm not going to show you the final one until I'm done but I will show you another one I made for a different project to give you an idea just what I'm talking about.

The first thing I did was of course find the perfect kit of digital graphics, import them into Heritage Collector, open up the storybook module and create a 5 x 5 page size.

This was made using Designs by Krista's new kit of graphics"Spring has Sprung".  On sale now for $2.00.
I printed these in sets of two on card stock.

Once they were printed I cut them out, folded them down the middle, then stapled them to a cellophane bag filled with goodies and I had a fun unique gift to give. All done using Heritage Collector!

I have to apologize that this picture isn't the greatest. My printer is about out of ink and my light tent is disabled. So, this is as good as it gets but I think you can get the jest of it!

Yes, the top picture is really how it is supposed to look but I still think it turned out cute anyway! You can do all kinds of neat things with Heritage Collector Storybook!! Make sure to come back so you can take a peak at my daughters birthday bags. They turned out adorable!

Keeping the storytelling going

Even though my life is so crazy busy I still make it a priority to do my family history and storytelling.  This time I decided to focus on my sweet daughter.

This 12 x12 page was done using a kit of graphics from "Trixie Scraps" and of course Heritage Collector Storybook to put the page together. 

Each day I am taught new sweet things from my daughter. She is such a little character! One of the things she is really into at the moment is being a little mommy! She loves to help with the twins.

The picture of her in the bottom left is her throwing up some leaves to try and get the babies to smile for the camera. Instead the photographer thought her expression was cuter and caught this cute little moment. These kandid pictures turned out to be some of my most favorites!

Each day I feel so blessed to be a mother. Because of this my passion for doing family history monthly has become a passion and obsession!

Thanks for stopping by. Come back again really soon!

I LOVE to hear from you. If you have suggestions of things you would like to learn how to do using Heritage Collector, please drop me a note!
