Project Life 2013: Week 4

PL 2013- Week 4_Full Spread

So I am addicted to Pinterest and pinning different Project Life spreads for inspiration. I love getting to see what other people do for their spreads and how they embellish their cards, esp if they are not using a kit. And now I’ve been on the lookout for some cute free printables. I really like the kits that are available but I just have too much stuff to buy more stuff, you know in addition to the Studio Calico kit I get every month. ugh, pretty paper addiction!
Check out what I have been pinning: My Project Life Board

Oh, you don’t document your love of bacon, egg, and cheeses? Whatever, so good. They make me happy so I wanted it in the book. And of course I had to take a picture of the candles I bought with the giftcard for my birthday from my newphews. Slatkin candles¬†are my favorite!

Pretty earrings, poker winnings, a parking ticket, and puppy time! I’ll take all that good for some bad… seriouly, I hate parking tickets!!! Esp $75 ones. At least when I look back at this I will be reminded about how we were dumb and didn’t realize that the great parking spot available was a loading zone. duh!!!


Project Life 2013: Week 3

PL 2013- Week 3_Full Spread

I have totally been loving Project Life this year. I am not very far behind- just behind on posting- so everyhting is fresh and new for me to keep up with. Plus I have really been trying to make a point of having fun things in there and to do more to jazz up the cards. It is taking more time than last year but I have been enjoying the process.

So without further ado…

Week 3, Left Side:

When I was jsut taking the picture of the layout I realized that the ingauration photo was actually from 2009 since Sasha was standing on the box & then I noticed the coats. Thanks Google, so helpful that this is one of the to images for the search ‘Obama Ingauration Day 2013’. Well, I have the correct picture ready to print to I’ll make that swap!

Week 3, Right Side:

This was the week of my birthday, so this half of the page is focused on documenting that. I put in part of the card from my mom in the lower left pocket. The cupcake in the upper left pocket is from my coworker and behind is some journaling that is hidden. It was kinda really bitchy so I didn’t want that to be the focus of the page so I purposefully hid it. Just glad that this allows me to document lifes up’s and down’s.

Stay tuned for Week 4 tomorrow! ūüôā

Project Life 2013: Week 2

So it’s snowing. In fact there is a lot of snow coming down now. Nemo has set up shop here and is dumping a ton of snow on us. A TON OF SNOW.

The best thing about the snow is getting to stay in and scrapbook. I’ve really been enjoying standing at my desk pulling out different papers and embellishments working on Project Life and creating new layouts.¬†Unforgettably¬†I did not plan well and have no photos. Crazy right!?!?

Well, either way. Lots of scrapbooking and baking going on this weekend and I love it.

This 2 page layout for Week 2 was fun to put together. Well, everything Project Life related is great but this was really great because I took some more time to create some more embellished inserts.

Puppy Love- Studio Calico 1.20.13 Sunday Sketch

This is exactly my kind of sketch!


1.20.13 Sunday Sketch

Oh, the structure. The grid. The alignment. It all makes me happy! So very happy!!!! I just love all of those things. I love how it all works together and feels connected. I bet I will be keeping this sketch around to refer back to every now and then.

I made some changes to the sketch since I didn’t have 6 photos for the layout so I shuffled things around and put the title in the area where a photo normally would have gone and then some embellishments in another. I didn’t put the title on a pattened paper block because I had the woodgrain alphas that I really wanted to use, since they matched the tone of the patterned papers I was using.

Get ready to see A LOT of doggy based layouts now. We are so excited to get our puppy on Saturday!

Happiness Right Here- Studio Calico 1.13.13 Sunday Sketch

at least I like the photo in this layout.


1.13.13 Sunday Sketch

Not my favorite layout.¬†That’s just the way it is. I liked the sketch but¬†I just was rushing with this and it shows- at least I think so. I still had fun stamping and punching out the clouds.

Happiness Right Here- Layout

I dunno, I shouldn’t bitch about this layout. I had enjoyed making it (quickly) and it was just nice to make something. You can’t get better at something without making a mistake or just not liking everything along the way either. I think the thing that I don’t like is that I used that stamp as the title. Maybe I’ll redo it. Probably not tho. I’m lazy.

At least I got to use up some random scraps of patterned paper punching out the clouds. Thinking positively here. ūüôā
