Friday, September 22, 2017


I'm catching up with posting my Project Life pages for 2017, and here are a few more!





Week 15: birthday week!


We took a spur-of-the-moment weekend trip to Disney, and of course it was amazing :)

Europe - London extras

Wednesday, September 20, 2017


I finished up all of my pages about London. First up was this layout about our hotel:


Next, I made a layout about riding around on a double decker bus. I made a 6"x12" insert about our trip to Hamley's, a toy store that has been in business for over 250 years (!!) and included some money in one pocket.


On the back of the insert, I added this fun postcard I bought and some pictures of the Tower Bridge. I used some of our favorite pictures on the 12"x12" about the Tower of London. This was our favorite thing we did in London!

Bon Appetit

Monday, September 18, 2017


Mom and I went to the Duluth, Georgia Scrapbooking Expo. Our hotel's breakfast just didn't seem appetizing, so we lucked up and found an amazing breakfast place nearby! I was inspired by Jen Schow's video about using 6"x6" papers and couldn't wait to try this technique!


I love these Thickers - they're so pretty!

Project Life 2017 - Weeks 1-10

Friday, September 15, 2017


So maybe you've been wondering how Project Life 2017 has been going. Earlier this year, I mentioned that I had big plans to make a weekly page in the PL App, then print and embellish them. I have found that I'm not so interested in embellishing them afterwards though... but I love the freedom the app gives me! The app make sit quick and easy to document our life, and frees up time for me to work on 12x12 layouts or other projects. There's no way I would be done with all the Europe pages I've made if I hadn't been using the app for my weekly layouts.

I added just a few embellishments to the first few weeks (mostly clear stickers, chipboard, and flair), but left many weeks un-embellished.


I'm including things we do, errands I run, books I read, etc. to my weekly layouts.




Week 5 was the first week I didn't add anything to the pages - I must admit, I like the clean look!


Week 7 sits on the right side of my album, and this layout is on the left.

 
I combined weeks 9 & 10 because it fell on the right side of the album - and my Europe pages start immediately after. The Europe trip kind of fell in the middle of weeks 9 & 10 and I really didn't have enough before/after of the trip to make full pages for either week.


I'm not quite ready to give up all my physical PL products, but it could happen one day. Have you used the app?

Dole Whip

Wednesday, September 6, 2017


Another Disney layout! I've decided to make a Disney album and just include random pictures from our trips. I don't want to re-document (is that a word?) because I have already covered our trips in my yearly Project Life albums. I'm dividing the album up into the 4 parks at Disney World (and will add other sections as needed, like Disneyland Paris or Disneyland and California Adventure).

Paper Issues had a Scraplift Sunday in July and I used it to document our love for Dole Whips.


I used this pineapple stamp from Concord and 9th for an embellishment. I was reminded of why I should always by the die to cut out stamps (they're so dang expensive though!!)


Purple, lime green, turquoise, black and white - with an accent of gold - turned out to be a good color combo for this layout. The background paper is from an older Amy Tangerine collection and the rest are just scraps.

Wild and Free

Tuesday, September 5, 2017


This is the first page in the Animal Kingdom section of my Disney album! This is my favorite area of Animal Kingdom and I always want to stop and take a picture. I was in Michael's the other night and their specialty 12x12 paper was on sale. When I saw this elephant paper, I knew exactly which photo I wanted to use with it.


This title is a rub-on that I got at Michael's a while back.


These wood flowers are also from Michael's. I think they were part of that boho collection.


What's your favorite spot in Animal Kingdom?

December 2016 Project Life

Friday, September 1, 2017


I did a very, very simple page for December. In 2016, I completed a December Daily and didn't see any reason to redo that in Project Life album. I basically hit the highlights and am calling it DONE!

Thanksgiving

Thursday, August 31, 2017


I've been working on finishing up my 2016 layouts and finished this one for Thanksgiving. This was the first year Joe and I hosted the dinner at our house. I think that's deserving of its own page.


I used a sketch from my Simple Scrapper membership and this page came together really quickly. It was an 8.5 x 11 page but I just kind of added extra to the sides to make it 12x12.


I dug through some old embellishments and used paper from Simple Stories Hello Fall collection. I bought a mini kit of it at the Scrapbook Expo.


Fall paper is my favorite!

October and November Project Life 2016

Wednesday, August 30, 2017


October was a fun month and I made it fit into a 2 page spread.

Left side: Mom and I made cards for the Caring Heart Card Drive, a coworker gave me the most hilarious card, we celebrated another coworkers birthday


Right side: I did early voting (for life, now!!!), Joe replaced the burners and fixed our stove, and we went to Six Flags over Georgia for Halloween.


November was just one full size page and then an insert. I made 2 12x12 layouts for November (Cubs Win! and a Thanksgiving one I will share soon).


Hubby and I took a weekend trip to Chattanooga so I could go see Rob Bell. A friend of mine used to live there and gave us AMAZING restaurant recommendations.


One of my good friends from high school passed away unexpectedly. This is the first real friend I have ever lost. His death brought a lot of our high school friends back together to visit and reminisce. I created a private Facebook album so that all of us could view and upload photos. It sucks not having digital pics of those years. This tribute is just short and sweet and not fancy (just like Sean would have liked it).

Look Up

Tuesday, August 29, 2017


Elle's Studio gave away some free printables for the solar eclipse and they're so cute! I used some paper I've been hoarding for a while - a piece from the Moonstruck collection and and one from Webster's Pages. I also used the Thickers arc guide to perfectly place my title.


I've been hanging on to this sun flair from Feed Your Craft and it was the perfect touch for this layout. I'm not sure if it's available anymore, but there's lots of other cute stuff in Elise's shop.

100 Days Project Days 11-20

Monday, August 28, 2017


I'm back with 10 more days of the 100 Days Project.

Day 11: I was camping and had pretty limited supplies. I just threw a few things in a box and didn't think about what I was going to do with them. I used the Blah Blah Blah stamp from HoneyBee stamps and created this pattern. I will either put this on a card and send it to someone that's going through a rough time or is sick... or I will cut it down and put it into Project Life.


Day 12: I used this stamp I got from the Scrapbook Expo to create this bright and fun floral background. This will probably end up as a card.


Day 13: I made a card for a friend and used the technique from Day 11.


Day 14: I tried some of the wooden block stamps I bought at Michael's earlier this year. I was super disappointed in how unclear the stamped images were... the leaf one is from Studio Calico and it does work well though.


Day 15: I used a technique we learned at the Scrapbook Expo to make these two backgrounds for cards.


Day 16: I used a turnabout stamp from Concord and 9th and LOVE how it turned out!




Day 17: I went through my (12!!) roller stamps and stamped them onto cards and numbered the card and the stamp. I don't use these stamps as often as I used to, but I think by organizing them this way, I'll remember to grab them!



Day 18: I didn't use the exact same colors, but I used distress inks on the left photo, and distress oxides on the right. The oxides are so creamy and they mix really well. I spritzed water on them and let them dry. These may end up as card backgrounds.


Days 19 & 20: I tried to use a triangle turnabout stamp. I need a lot of practice, as this one's really tough to line up. Although i was frustrated with how it went, I kind of like these now...
