Disneyland Picture Frame

Last week, our office went out to lunch to celebrate my amazing coworker’s birthday.  Casey LOVES Disneyland and has been there 25+ times throughout her life.  During lunch, we talked about all the new rides and her secret tips to navigating the park.  At that moment, I knew exactly what I wanted to make as a birthday gift.






I hope this frame will showcase a special memory from one of her many, many trips. =)  HAPPY BIRTHDAY CASEY!!!!


“My First Year” Shadow Box: Aadya

I recently had the pleasure of making a First Year shadow box for little Aadya.  For her privacy, I’ve covered up the actual photos.

Aadya’s favorite spin top was included as one of the toys at the bottom.

Instead of little holiday decorations on the frames, her mom opted for girly hearts, flowers, bows, and butterflies.

We also incorporated an extra frame for her 1st birthday photo.

Agenda Inserts

A few weeks ago, I was watching HRH Collection’s YouTube video where she talked about her 2015 agenda and how difficult it is to find cute inserts.  I completely understood her frustration because I used to print my own calendars and planners to fit my own needs.  I felt her pain and thought she would enjoy some personalized inserts using photos from her Instagram.

Follow the directions below to create your own insert and adjust the size to fit any agenda.



  • Using MS Publisher, create a box the size of the insert.  This insert was for an A5 agenda (5.8 x 8.3 inches).


  • Create gray lines for the notes.  Leave space on the left and right margins, with more space on the left to account for the holes.  Also leave a space in one of the corners for an image.


  • Insert image into document.  Re-size image and move to corner.  This image was 2 x 2 inches.


  • Repeat with more images.
  • Print inserts on 30 lb. laser paper, which has a nice gloss finish.
  • Cut out inserts.



  • Round off corners with a corner punch.
  • To finish, use either a single hole punch or something like this.  Since I knew she had a hole punch, I sent the inserts as-is.

So there you have it, agenda inserts using your own images.  You could also make your own weekly pages, monthly pages, budget sheets, to-do lists, etc.  The options are endless!

Have a great weekend!
