Yoga Project Life

Monday, August 31, 2015


I finished yoga teacher training a couple weekends ago! I used graduation as an excuse to make a Project Life mini album :) I included a page about each student, a thank you section for our teachers, and short recaps of most of the subjects we covered. I made do with the pictures my teachers posted on Facebook. I mixed a bunch of Project life kits (High Five, Blush, Kiwi, etc). Today I'm showing you a few of the pages and cards I made for this book!

Here's the cover page. Next, I wrote a short letter to our teachers and listed all of our names.


I got my fellow students involved and made little kits for them. They each filled out a bio card, talked about their favorite topic/class we covered, added a little art piece/doodle/whatever, and a thank you note for the end. Here's how my page turned out (don't mind the glare): 


We definitely formed our own little tribe during this training. Love these people!!


I included a page about what our days looked like (generally speaking of course). I used an Ali Edwards stamp for the "weekend routine" and the days of the week are already printed on the Blush cards.


I stacked up all of our books and used a fun PL card from Ali Edwards' First Story Kit.


I'm so glad I bought these Melody Ross stickers on clearance a long time ago... they have really come in handy!!


I'm not sharing most of the pictures I put in the book due to privacy... but I made cards for many subjects we covered in class. This page has cards to represent Sun Salutations, Moon Salutations, a book called The Yoga Sutras, and a type of yoga called yoga nidra.


We explored Karma Yoga by doing selfless acts of service. We really made a difference in our communities and helped ourselves in the process!


We tried many types of yoga, including Paddleboard Yoga.


I used an app called Word Swag to make a card about the 8 limbs of yoga.


And enamel dots were the perfect size to make a card representing the 7 chakras.


Are you into yoga?

Doodling

Wednesday, August 19, 2015


Blog friends, I miss you. I have lots of thing I want to do and share, but time has been short lately. I'll have more free time in the next couple weeks though!

I'm loving the little doodles in scrapbook products here lately. I really fell in love when I saw a mini flair collaboration between Elise at Feed Your Craft and Brandi Kincaid (Elise has just a few mini flair sets left in her Etsy shop by the way!). When I saw a class by Brandi over at Big Picture Classes I couldn't wait to try it out, even though I don't have experience with doodling much.

I started out by copying Brandi's mugs and flowers. I had never thought about breaking an object down into components this way... it makes doodling seem doable!!


Next, I tried faces. Again, so much easier than I expected.


I took it a step further and tried to draw some things related to my day as a pharmacist. Some of the pill markings are actual pills we have at my store, haha! I tried drawing a counting tray, syringe, liquid bottle, beaker, dosing cup, my white jacket, and the computer.


Lastly, I drew stuff related to going to sleep. I have pajamas, an alarm clock, a Kindle, a fun star studded pillowcase (I need to find one like that), fuzzy slippers, a beauty mask, and a glass of water.


Have you tried doodling?

26 Books - July

Monday, August 3, 2015

I have a reading update today... So far I've just been reading whatever I want and then fitting it into one of the criteria. I'm starting to think I might have to make more intentional purposes to get all the criteria!


1. A book you own but haven't read
2 - a book that was made into a movie
3 - a book you pick solely because of the cover
4 - a book your friend loves
5 - a book published this year
6 - a book by an author you've never read before
7 - a book by an author you love
8 - a book at the bottom of your "to be read" pile
9 - a book with a color in the title
10 - a book set somewhere you've always wanted to visit
11 - a book you started but never finished
12 - a book with a lion, a witch, or a wardrobe
13 - a book with a female heroine
14 - a book set in the summer
15 - a book of poems
16 - a book you learned about because of this challenge
17 - a book that will make you smarter
18 - a book with a blue cover
19 - a book you were supposed to read in school. But didn't.
20 - a book "Everyone" has read but you
21 - a book with a great first line
22 - a book with pictures
23 - a book from the library
24 - a book you loved... read it again!
25 - a book that is more than 10 years old
26 - a book based on a true story

I read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo and I'm using it for book #12 (a book with a lion, a witch, or a wardrobe). This book is about organizing and it definitely talks about organizing your wardrobe! ;) I loved the book. Some people think it's a little kooky with the thanking items and setting them free... and I'm definitely not going to thank every piece of Tupperware or anything... but thanking your item for being of service to you and then letting it go actually gives you relief! And maybe permission.

The second book I am reading is going to count for #15 (a book of poems). I'm reading the Bhagavad Gita: A New Translation by Stephen Mitchell for yoga teacher training. It's actually one big long poem, but it works for me.

May Project Life Part 2

Thursday, July 30, 2015


Today I have the rest of my May Project Life pages. July is almost over and I still need to do June! I had reservations at the beginning of the year, but I'm really loving doing a monthly Project Life with some 12x12 layouts.


Left side: me with an adorable Shasta reproduction camper, our clean back porch, an evening walk, mine and Mom's delayed National Scrapbooking Day celebration, and a coworker leaving our store.


Joe and I went for a walk after dinner one night and the stars were starting to come out as we got back to the house. Joe has a cool app on his phone that shows you all the constellations. We sat outside and identified stars and planets for a little while. Isn't this Studio Calico card perfect for this occasion?!


Right side: what our feet looked like after we participated in a fire walk, books I read, learning how to teach pregnancy yoga in teacher training, Cinco de Mayo.


Books I read in May:

Sympathy Card

Monday, July 27, 2015


I recently made a sympathy card. It's simple but pretty! I used a few chipboard accents and a sympathy stamp set I got from Studio Calico. So glad I bought that - it's come in handy a couple of times!


Have a great Monday!

May Project Life Part 1

Thursday, July 23, 2015


Hello! Today I'm sharing one of my Project Life pages from May. Simple Scrapper recently had a Stash Bash where we had lots of challenges to do to encourage us to use up and organize our stash. Challenge #1 was to make a page in 30 minutes using things currently on your desk. I already had my pictures printed for May. I grabbed a few Studio Calico cards and used some from Shimelle's "Lovely" collection. Here's how far I got in 30 minutes:


It took me a little more than 30 minutes because I still had to cut the pictures apart and figure out which photos would go on which page, but it was fun to push myself to get it done quickly and without getting caught up in searching for the perfect supply. It didn't take me long to go back and add text and just a few embellishments.


Have you ever tried to make a page in 30 minutes? I'll have a couple more May Project Life pages to show you next week.

Cruise layout

Thursday, July 9, 2015


I had lots of pictures, so I decided to make a layout about all the towel animals our steward made us on the ship. It was something different every day.


I used Basic Grey's "Adrift" collection (did I get my money's worth on this collection or what? I used it on this layout and these pocket pages).


I think this little flair button is super cute.


I used enamel dots, wood veneers, and leftover Studio Calico stars to embellish almost every photo.
