Good Things are coming...

Just wanted to let you know JessicaSprague.com is having 20% off sale starting Black Friday, Nov 26th and it runs all the way through Dec 31st. Sweet! And ... the new free class starts Monday the 29th ... hope to see you in class.





Menu Planner & Shopping List
I'm a list maker ... I *need* lists to survive. I often plan my meals for the week on a scrap piece of paper and make a grocery list for those meals, only to find I've misplaced my meal plans after my shopping trip ... and then my scattered brain cannot remember all the new recipes I had panned to try out that week.

I had been eyeing up Cyrstal's Meal Planner kit in the store for a while now. And Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird collection was the kick I needed to put this together.


I just put some papers and elements from Early Bird together to make a cover page to slip into my 3 ring binder. Printed a few of Crystal's Meal Planner papers, punched holes and I was done. I like the binder because I can keep it in my kitchen and not worry about it getting dirty as it is easy to wipe down. It has little pockets where I can stash the new recipes I print out.


But... I also needed a little pocket Grocery List so I made one with chipboard covers and binder rings. (Easy to fill with new Grocery Lists as I use them up.) I also added some Coin Envelopes (found at Staples/Office Depot) and will use them to store a few coupons. The size is perfect to stash into my bag. I used the polygon lasso tool to clip out the Grocery List side of Crystal's page and just added in a few fun Cosmo Cricket Early Bird elements. ~ Thanks for looking!

Santa, I've been a Good Boy!
New Merry & Bright Quick Pages by Crystal. So cute & perfect "as is". Love the Kraft paper. This page has just a few little touches ... & let's the photo & memory shine. Crystal has a few of these QPs coming out this week. You could use them to do a whole December Theme album in record time. Here I took a not so great photo & followed Jessica's recipe for a soft glow as seen in her latest Photoshop Friday #26 Soft Glow. Then I did some darkening of the background to "cover up" the distracting background. This is definitely one of my favorite PSFs!

Hey there! I have a few things to share with you today.

First: If you shopped my Sale this past week/weekend, a big huge super duper thank you to you. I am buried under Uline bubble mailers, scraps of wool felt and packaging tape. Seriously you should see my studio. It is out of control at the moment. Please know I am working as fast as I can to get your order out the door and on its way to you. :) I had wholesale orders, retail orders and lots of custom requests. Hoping to have all custom and retail orders out the door by Friday and most wholesale orders ready to go out by early next week. As always, you will receive a note from me when your order is ready for mailing.

Wholesale vendors, please please make sure your minimum purchases are at least $100 to utilize your discount. Fair? :) I think so, and I hope you do too!

Second: If you craft, create art or live to be inspired in any way .... check out this FREE, yes, Free new class by Jessica Sprague. Sign up and spread the word to all your friends! Click the image for more info & hope to see you in class.
