Camping Project Life

Monday, July 28, 2014


So I have finally started my mini album about camping - and of course I'm documenting it Project Life style. I'm using a green SN@P binder I got on clearance at Michael's. I have a lot of supplies from Simple Stories "Take a Hike" collection, but I am using lots of other supplies as well.


I'm not going to document every single trip we go on - although I may start a "trip log" in here to keep up with where we go. I'm going to document stories and fun things I find along the way. It won't be in chronological order.  It's going to have a mixture of pocket pages and card stock pages. 


I created this page simple because the die cuts were too cute not to use!! I love small vintage campers. Too bad Joe and I like a little more space when camping :)


This is a 4x6 card from a 12x12 cut apart sheet in the "Take a Hike" collection. I used coordinating stickers and alphas to fill out the prompts.


And we can't forget that time we made dinner, opened the silverware drawer, and discovered we had had a little visitor!

Project Life Week 23

Thursday, July 24, 2014


I had fun putting together week 23... I put them together while camping! Before we left, I printed out all my photos, figured out which page protectors to use, and brought PL cards, stickers, embellishments, and a few new 6x6 paper pads. I ended up using mostly Studio Calico's "South of Market" 6x6 pad and a couple things from My Mind's Eye.

Full spread:


Left side: made a fairy garden with my parents, admired my washi collection, laughed at Joe's pic of him on a motorcycle at an auction, and tried shoes on at Target. Oh, and Joe booked our Otober trip to Disney. Can't wait!!


I've really used this thin Studio Calico washi several times... love it!! I wish these shoes hadn't hurt my feet... they were cute.


Right side:


I like these label maker stickers.


I've been hoarding this card for a while... finally decided to use it <3


Do you use your favorite cards or keep them in your stash to admire for a while?

The Sweetest Day

Monday, July 21, 2014


I made a scrapbook page about our wedding day. I used Webster's Pages "Sweet Routine" by Adrienne Looman. I tried stitching for the first time and really like how it turned out. I cut out the 3x3  squares and small circles from 12x12 pages in the collection.


I cut out the title on my Cameo. This is the gold foil paper from Silhouette. It's gorgeous!! 


I embellished using a MAMBI chipboard sticker set. I think the gold accents are a great compliment to the color scheme.


Have you scrapped your wedding day? Or your relationship with your significant other?

Project Life Weeks 21 & 22

Thursday, July 17, 2014


Simple pages. That's what I'm feeling here lately. I combined weeks 21 & 22 and went back to my go-to Coral kit this time around. I was reminded of how much I love the colors in this kit!

Full spread:


Left side: Putt-Putt when Tommy was in town, Cheesecake Factory with Joe, pressure washing the back porch, and redoing the chimney.


Right side: a camping trip, riding our bikes on the Virginia Creeper trail, and Memorial Day.


I had fun with alphas this time:


And I'm almost out of those Studio Calico puffy asterisks! I've got a lot of mileage out of those stickers.

Raskog Cart Organization

Monday, July 14, 2014


Today I thought I'd show you my Raskog cart from Ikea. Mom and I each got one of these last year when we went to CKC in Charlotte. I love how easy and convenient it is to store all of my PL supplies. I'm even more in love with it now that I added washi tape to my Raskog! This washi is from PinkFresh Studio. Adore!


Here's the whole cart. I have tall packs of stickers and alphas sideways in the front of the top tier. I'm able to quickly flip through them when I'm looking for something to embellish my pages.


I found this cute little storage box in the Target dollar spot. It holds puffy stickers, my ever-increasing MAMBI chipboard and clear stickers, cork embellishments, overlays, and rub ons.


This other basket on the top tier holds smaller alphas, photo frames, and other new embellishments.


I have a plastic Ikea tray in the second tier. It holds PL cards, enamel dots, flair, etc. I still have most of my PL cards in a Close to my Heart medium organizer box.


Washi tape, metal diecuts, and Cameo supplies are in plastic storage boxes in the bottom tier.

Do you have a Raskog?? What do you store in it?

Project Life Weeks 19 & 20

Thursday, July 10, 2014


I combined weeks 19 & 20 into one spread and used the Happy kit and a couple Studio Calico cards. Happy was an exclusive kit from HSN (I think) and I was lucky enough to buy 1/3 kit online. The purchase involved stalking an ISO (in search of) thread and hoping/wishing that someone would finally have some and sell it! I find that getting 1/3 kit is the perfect amount for me. I don't get bored with it and I don't have too much repetition.

Full spread:


Left side: a new yoga bag from my BFF, a new past salad, and a new car for my brother.


Right side: Cinco de Mayo, Harley turned 15, catching up with a friend at Target, and a camping trip to Asheville.


Still loving those Jillibean alphas.


I dug out some Freckled Fawn enamel dots that match this PL kit pretty well!

July 4th celebrations and a Bathroom Renovation

Sunday, July 6, 2014


Hope you had a happy 4th of July weekend! Here's a few highlights from ours:

My first motorcycle ride. Still scared! Not totally convinced.
But not saying no totally.


We saw some great fireworks this weekend.


And I got a hug & kiss from the most precious puppy in the world. Seriously. She is sweeter than brown sugar. She turned 15 on Cinco de Mayo. I love this little baby more than I ever knew you could love a dog. 


Oh and we've been doing a little bathroom renovation here lately. We've been working on bits and pieces at a time and it's really coming along.

We started with this: a lovely pink sink and vanity, built-in cabinet (no drawers!), and lovely Wilson's Econ-o-Tile stuck 4ft up the wall in dark gray/white swirl with pink accents. It matches my pink tub (that will be the next project). I got rid of the pink toilet before I moved in several years ago.


Onto brighter days! Joe and his dad demo'd the old sink and installed the new vanity.


And here's the vanity installed!! Major improvements, but as you can see... there's still that problem of that obnoxious Econ-o-Tile


I'm ready to demo this crap off the walls :)


Then Joe and I went and bought supplies... bead board, chair rail, and baseboards. And I bought 5 different tiles to see what I might like best for a sink backsplash.


I told him all the pieces would fit in my small SUV :) hehe


Here's the first wall completely stripped of fake plastic tiles ... and now, with beautiful bead board installed! We have a smaller piece that will sit right on top of the chair rail and cover the old tile adhesive.



That same piece will finish the top of this chair rail too. We're far from being finished, but we LOVE it already. It's SOOOOOO much brighter in here. 


Next we'll be doing whatever it is you do to cover nail holes, get a paint for the bead board, and pick a color for the wall. We also have one more decorative piece that will go on top of the chair rail. And then the tiled backsplash.

Are they any home improvement projects you're currently working on?
