10 Projects to Add a Little Sunshine to Your Day

Add a little sunshine to your day with a crafty project! The teachers at BPC have pulled together ten project ideas you're sure to love—all with a bright and sunny twist! Check out each one below and be sure to share what you create in our Student Gallery.

Let your art bring a smile to your face. 

Make Happy Art, Smitha Katti

Happy art is motivational art that makes you happy while you're creating it, but can also cheer you up or brighten your day by reinforcing the positive on any other given day. Words are powerful, and writing them down can alter your feelings and change your mood for the day. Making your own happy art should be relaxing and energizing. You can color, draw, doodle, letter, or paint!

Dress up your planner for an instant mood booster. 

Planner Love, Leah O'Neil

Pockets can be used functionally or just to add some pretty décor to the front of your planner, or a mixture of both. I prefer to mix fashion and function!

What's not to love about 3D flowers? 

Paige's Pages | 12, Paige Evans 

I used some of my favorite colorful papers from my "Oh My Heart" collection with Pink Paislee for all the flower petals and then cut the centers from the same piece of yellow paper for consistency. It would be fun to see these flowers cut from solid papers or even cardstock; the same cut files can be used so many different ways to get unique results!

Branch out and try something new—like cutting your photo into circles! 

The Joy of Circles, Caroli Schultz 

I'll share my absolute love and devotion for circles. I've been working with circles since the beginning of my scrapbooking journey and I love them. They're a very versatile and fun shape, and they're an excellent way of using all those little scraps we keep hoarding in our stash just because.

Create a mini album full of happiness. 

You Are My Happy, Soraya Maes

Soraya Maes will help you gather your favorite photos, stories, and memories into a fun and colorful mini book. Soraya shares a variety of tips and techniques for organizing your supplies, displaying photos within your album, embellishing your album, and more—all of which come together to make a one-of-a-kind mini album that holds all your favorite memories.

Make your own lettered art print that you can look at every day. 

Your Unique Lettering, Mandy Ford

My hope is that this class will be different from other lettering classes you’ve seen or perhaps taken in that I’m not going to teach you a lettering style to copy or replicate. Instead, I want you to embrace your own handwriting and turn it into a style of lettering all your own! That means there are NO rules—we aren’t using guides, rulers, or anything other than your own handwriting and lots of inspiration.

Send a happy card to a friend—just because!

Painted Notes, Lisa Spangler

There's just nothing like sending someone a card. My heart feels happy as I put it in the mail and I imagine the recipient opening it. Many times I've given someone a card I made with mixed media materials and watched as they flip it over and see the back and they're like "you MADE this? WOW!". It feels so good.

Add a pom-pom cover to your next mini for some extra fun. 

"Us" | A Mini Book About Your Life, Kelli Rich

I'm so excited to teach you how to make this mini book. Mine is filled with moments of my life. I have entitled it "Us" because it's all about me, my husband, and our three boys. It expresses a little bit about each of my kids and is filled with lots of pictures and interactive elements. It represents so much about us and our life right now.

Add a bouquet of flowers to your next layout. 

Flower Power, Anna Komenda

I love the brightness of this page. It's one-of-a-kind because I created my own background. It's also a great way of creating if you don't have a lot of embellishments.

Harness the sunshine of summer in a themed mini. 

Summer Fun Mini Album, Ashley Horton

In this class, I'll create an album that covers June, July, and August of 2015. I've got some ideas, tips, and techniques to help you get started on your album. I hope you have fun with the class lessons and end up with your own "Summer Fun" mini album.

    How Free Classified Ads Helped Me Earn Handsome Amount?
    I am 40 years old - have been recently laid off from the company I worked for. For the past 15 years, I was working at a call centre that had a UK contract, the client was a bank that forwards its customer's queries to us. I started off as a low-key office boy then worked my way to become the manager of the unit. After the recession hit - our client went bankrupt and there was no reason for our company to exist. I suddenly went from being a manager to being unemployed. My wife became our only source of income, the economy being so slugging, it was extremely difficult for me to get a new job.
    Our family of four had to shift to a smaller flat to make ends meet along with our dog a Labrador. Our dog gave birth to four beautiful puppies, but this was a problem, when we made plans for the dog to have children, we didn't expect our financial situation to change so drastically, this small flat hardly had place for 4 of us - with 4 more dogs it would be nearly impossible for us to manage, and to add to that the amount of money that had to go towards taking care of them was not something we could afford back then.
    We decided it would be best if we could just give away the puppies, our children were not happy with the decision, but they were grown enough to understand our predicament. I asked a few of my friends if they wanted a puppy, they all said no, one of them said why don't you sell them? I was surprised, I enquired him about how can I sell them, he told me about the miracle of free classified ads
    I placed free classified ads on many of the classified portals in India and frankly speaking I did not expect it to work - was a little skeptical about it, but I soon started getting inquiry calls from so many of the potential buyers who were keen on buying my puppies. I sold the first one for INR 4,000 through izydaisy, then I learned the art of bargaining, and I sold other two for INR 6,000, I sold the last and the cutest one for a whopping 10,000 Rupees. So, this way free classified ads helped me get a footing in my time of need.https://www.izydaisy.com/
