2019 Project Life // Finished album flip through

2019 was the 7th Project Life Album I've finished and I always love looking back through them with you guys!

Here is the not-so-quick flip through...

Project Life 2020 // Week 4


At the start of February I created a HUGE stash kit with my Patrons and I'm using that kit to create todays spread. Also making things very quick is a bunch of DIY embellishments I created with bits from that same kit!



Here is the process for this week's spread... 

One Little Word 2020 // February


This is always one of my favourite prompts from this class. It is the one time of year when I sit down and read through some magazines and then get messy. And I am ALWAYS amazed at what the end result turns out to be. I kind of feel like I'm just long for the ride. There isn't really a good way to "plan" how this one will go, it just becomes and that's what I love about it.


This year, I didn't do the collage inside my album, I created something I could keep visible, displayed in my room where I'll see it each and every day. Then I took a photo and added that into my album so I can also keep a record in there as well.


Here is my process for the February prompt...

Project Life 2020 // Week 3


For Week 3 I used the POSSIBILITIES Life Crafted kit from Citrus Twist Kits. I've already made so many things with the kit this month but I easily managed a week of Project Life too! And I'm still loving that ALL ABOUT THE NUMBERS stamp set for title cards too!



Here is the process for this week's spread... 

Take Some Time // Citrus Twist


I created this little not-to-self page in my Life Crafted album to remind myself that those rough times don't last, I just need to take a little time and let them pass. But also take a photo so I can remind myself for next time!⁠



Here is the process for how this page came together ...

Project Life 2020 // Week 2


I dove back into my stash for this week but made things a lot easier by using one of the mini kits I created with my Patrons last week! No more endlessly scanning through my huge stack of cards!

Kellie Stamps // Nom Nom


I experimented a bit today using both the digital and clear SNACCIDENT sets from Kellie Stamps to create a fun spread in my Life Crafted album. Repeat stamping, interactive journalling, digital stamps, foil quilling, this one has it all. More is more for this one, the same theory I applied to the ice cream sundae the page is about! 🍦🍦🍦

One Little Word 2020 // January


I finally sat down and finished the January prompt for my One Little Word album! In the spirit of things, I decided to give myself some SPACE this month and not force myself to do the prompt until I was ready. And when I did actually sit down to finish, it wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be. It never is.


I had to resize a couple of the pdf pages in Photoshop so they would fit into my Life Crafted album and I decided to create my own word art at the front of the album to keep my word visible despite not using all the 3x4 cards this month.


Here is my process for the January prompt...

Project Life :: Week 51


This week was a hard one! My Patrons chose what I had to work with this week and using things I didn't choose myself was a bit tougher than normal but I love how it worked out in the end!


They wanted me to work with old Project Life cards, water colours, transparencies, washi tape and add some stitching.
