A Project a Day in May...more ideas:

Let's start with a super-easy tag book:

Have you tried one of these yet?? Our new Classic Tag shape is simple....for a reason. I designed this die simply because of its's PERFECT for 4x6 photos! Take a 4x6 vertical photo & adhere it to a page in our Classic Tag Chipboard Book. Trim top corners off. THAT'S IT. Who knew?!?

And, you can do the same with scraps of paper. Or, if you want to make life even easier, order any of our 36 solid colors or any of the Mix & Match prints in our Classic Tag option...and your papers will be cut perfectly for you.

On this project, Tracy used our Loverly papers from GCD Studios in the Classic Tag shape...added photos...RINGS & an XL Slide Mount & our XL Slide Spots (Father theme), along with the heart (from our Chipboard Embellishing Shapes pack) to put together the perfect Father's Day gift.

Wouldn't these make great Mother's Day gifts, too? or Graduation? Maybe use a glue dot to add a gift card on a page. What about brag books for new baby pictures? Perfect size to fit in a purse for new grandma's to carry with them. Ok, the list could really go on...Classic Tag Book. Make just one and you'll be hooked.

Here's another project...easy as can be PARTY BANNER:

We used:

Mini Connectors & Liners

Alphabet Letters from our Cardstock Creations

Stars from our Chipboard Embellishing Shape packs

3" white circles (also available in Cardstock Creations)


Any questions?? Remember, we have all these items precut for you. Or get the base pieces from us & utilize your stash for the rest...or somewhere in between. Just make something. It's worth every ounce of creative energy for the feeling of accomplishment...or if you're like me, the creative time itself is your reward. The finished product? Just icing on the cake.

And, another idea...once you're done with a banner like this for a specific event, why not add it to your layout for that event?? Double duty projects. Gotta love that.

Just think how cute these mini banners could be hanging on the door of your child's room with his/her name on it. Or for a special day for someone with 'CONGRATS' on it...or 'WE LOVE YOU'...or 'YOU CAN DO IT'...oh, here I go again. So many possibilities. Think of the smiles you'll receive from friends & family if you celebrate them & their lives with a little hand-made surprise like this.

Ready for more? Got school age kids??

Why not paint one of our 6x6 Apple Chipboard books & make some simple pages for the kids to fill in...and make a teacher's year?!

Our Classic Scroll shape fits perfectly on 6x6 pages, do all our Classic Shapes. With everything precut for you, you could easily finish this in a night.

This idea isn't just for teachers. With all the FUN SHAPES of our 6x6 Books, you can make them for:

Baby Showers

Wedding Showers

Zoo Trips

Gratitude Journals

Holiday mini albums

Yet another list that could go on & on. What are your ideas? We'd love to see your creations with our Keller's Creations!

Hope you're on your way to being ready to make A PROJECT A DAY IN MAY. Stay tuned for more ideas coming your way.
