Holiday Cards :: Week 2

I'm still following along with Kristina Werner's Holiday Card series. In fact I'm rather addicted to it now. Here are my versions of her cards from Week 2...

Project Life :: Week 42

Another week done and dusted. Still loving my letterpress and still really struggling with this months kits. Keep an eye out for another tutorial where I show you how I change the cards I don't love.

Project Life Tips :: Typing on journalling cards

I'm sure I'm not the only one who isn't enamored with their own handwriting. One of the other ways I get my stories down is by using a typewriter. Some journalling cards are a bit hard to put through a typewriter so I found the easiest way is to fix them to a sheet of regular paper, with either tape-runner on the back or a little washi tape at the top and bottom. I usually place my photo where I want it and make a light mark with a pencil for where I want my journalling to start.

Once I've finished typing I pull off the tape and erase the pencil make, attach my photo and its all done. This same technique works well for typing on stickers or labels as well.

Holiday Cards :: Week 1

I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that October is a little early to start the Christmas countdown but rather than leave all the joy and cheer until December, I decided to follow along with Kristina Werner's Holiday Card series. Here are my versions of her cards from Week 1...

Project Life :: Week 41

Can you see the theme this week? Its been hard to work with this month's kit because it is SOOOO fall/autumn themed and we are in the middle of spring. So I picked out the least-autumn cards and then challenged myself to use gold on every card! And I succeeded. I'm loving the Alex and Ben Alpha stamps and the gold transparency pad.

A few layouts...

Here's a few of the layouts I've been working on lately. You can more in my gallery at Studio Calico.

Project Life :: Week 40

Boy was I short on photos this week. I was also short on enthusiasm for getting Project Life done. So this week's spread has been sitting out on my desk for a few days. Luckily my enthusiasm returned and I knocked it out. I can't get enough of these rub-ons. There literally isn't a card that doesn't have one this week!

Project Life :: Week 39

I don't really have a lot to say this week. I do love that water-coloured title card though. And I can't get enough of that alpha. Although I've used up as much of them as I can, so I'll have to start making up words (that have no vowels) if I want to continue to use them.

Around here...

Heading to work early enough to see the sunrise, trying new things, waiting for Shane to get home, spending a lot of time in bed, seeing the first signs of spring. And I really need to get the lawn mowed!

Project Life :: Week 38

A very long week. Health issues, long nights, too much work. All resulted in a week where there aren't too many photos. The upside is that I was forced to do a bit more journalling than normal. Love that constellation paper and my obsession with black, sparkly embossing powder continues.

18 September 2014


We were heading to a party on Saturday night (Happy Birthday Jo!), when I realised I hadn't made a card. SO I quickly whipped up this one using my new card kit, some watercolours and the Sunday Sketch.

Project Life :: Week 37

New kits arrived this week and I LOVE the colour scheme. Pink and teal, how unusual for me! A light-hearted and joyful week, helped along by an abundance of sunshine, adventures and happy mail.

Project Life :: Week 36

Its been a hard week and I think my layout reflects that, the colours are a bit more muted than normal and I didn't have many photos to work with. But in the end I'm happy to have it done and dusted. And I'm looking forward to playing with my new goodies next weekend!
