{Photo Memory Game}

I had so much fun making this crafty gift for my little ones for Christmas. It is a memory game with photos of our family. I'm sure they will love playing with this soon.
Here are the instructions for any of you who want to give it a try.
Things you'll need:
-Bazzill chipboard squares, (2 inch)-you can find them online or at most craft stores
They come in packs of 20 and I used 2 packs-so I had 20 pairs of photos.
-20 photos-2 of each printed 2x2 inches.
-Scrapbook paper for the back-digi paper is best to print and use because you need the
backs to look exactly the same. I just cropped this polka-dot digi paper and printed
40 2x2 inch squares.
-glue stick, or some form of adhesive and Mod-Podge (what would we do without Mod-Podge!)
1. Print your photos and digi paper or cut out square for backs. I added a frame to my photos and a grunge frame to the back paper.
2. Glue both sides with adhesive.
3. Mod-Podge over the photos and back paper. I did one side of all and then let them dry for about 30 minutes or so and then mod-podged the other side.
Next step is to find a fun way to store your photo memory game. There are a lot of ways to do this, but I found this tin box with a lid at Robert's Crafts. I added some paper, ribbon and a little family photo. Loved making this!
P.S. I also thought it would be cute to make an alphabet matching game with photos of your family.

{Birthday Banner}

I wanted to make a little birthday banner this month . I was going to sew one, but since that would be too tricky and time consuming, I thought I would digi scrap one. I used the cookie cutter tool in photoshop to cut out the rounded corner squares and circles. I just made one of each and used them as a template to finish the words.
I printed them 5x5 and then mounted them on card stock. I used scalloped scissors to make the cute edge. I strung the letters together and added cute ribbon in between each letter.

I also used the Autumn Medley kit from Shabby Princess for this project.

I am thinking of making a Halloween one now. It was a fun and quick project.
