Project Life 2019 :: Week 22


I used the *BIG AND SMALL kit by Feed Your Craft and Brandi Kincaid for this week and before I started I knew there were a couple of 4x6 cards that I wanted to incorporate.

One had a before and ending sort of feel that I knew I could split into two 3x4's and one had a bunch of circles that I really wanted to cut out and back with some of my coffee photos from the week. None of my metal dies fit perfectly, so I ended up using a digital card and my Silhouette to perfectly cut the holes for my photos. And now I still have that card to use again! So love digital kits!

Never Too Old :: Pink Paislee Design Team

I just adore the new Indigo and Ivy collection and I thought all those soft pinks and water color patterns would work perfectly in my Traveler's Notebook to document my birthday balloon! Never too old for balloons I say! I'm sharing this page over on the Pink Paislee blog today, I hope you'll stop by and check it out!


Pocket Page Notebook :: Fragile and Formidable


It's release day over at Feed Your Craft and as soon as I saw these two cards from the *BIG AND SMALL kit by Brandi Kincaid, I knew they would make the perfect page to capture how I've been feeling lately.


Capped off with sequins (of course) and a quote that sums up the two sides of this spread, stamped in the AWESOME new ASTER ALPHA too!

One Little Word 2019 :: May and June


And here I am again, with yet another One Little Word catch up. But I am determined to stop letting my assumptions about how hard this will be or how badly I am doing with my word this year stop me! 


Once I sat down and worked through the prompts, I realised that I am making progress, it just isn't as grand or easily measurably as last year. It is hard, rough and painful work but I am doing it. Not to my usually high standard I guess, which is why I feel like such a failure. 

 
So I am celebrating the successes and remembering that it isn't easy what I am doing but the process and the end result are worth it. Not matter how small the change is.



Here is my process for the May and June prompts...

I'm over on the Citrus Twist blog today sharing a new Traveler's Notebook Challenge with you. Theres a fun process video too so stop by and check it out!


Project Life 2019 :: Week 21


Week 21 was my birthday week. And birthday weeks equal confetti and pink and florals and all the pretty things! Which is perfect because the "Around Here" Life Crafted kit from Citrus Twist is full of pretty things!

Pocket Page Notebook :: No Drama Llama


Not every page has to have a photo so I made a little note-to-self page in my Pocket Page Notebook today! I got this amazing llama punch in my latest DT package from Pink Paislee and the llama cut file was too cute not to go with it!

Happy Dog :: Pink Paislee Design Team

Lately, I have been obsessed with my Mini Envelope Punch Board and making tiny little envelopes for happy mail projects. But I decided, there is no reason I couldn't add some happy little envelopes to a scrapbook layout too! I'm sharing this page over on the Pink Paislee blog today, I hope you'll stop by and check it out!

Project Life 2019 :: Week 20


I didn't have a lot of time for this week's Project Life spread, but luckily I was using the brand new Citrus Twist Life Crafted kit, so it all came together in less that 20 minutes! Despite redoing my title card three times!

Traveler's Notebook :: More Coffee than Tea


This was such a fun page I made using the KINGS PARK ALPHA from Kellie Stamps. Looks like a page of random letters right? That is actually my journalling! And yes, it did take a long time! The process would have been very long and boring to watch so I've shortened it significantly!

Selfie Snuggles :: Pink Paislee Design Team

Why choose one photo when you can add three of them?! I'm over on the Pink Paislee blog today sharing this multi-photo page of my new favourite selfie-buddy! I hope you'll take a peek and let me know what you think!


Project Life 2019 :: Week 19


Despite the VERY autumnal colour scheme of my photos this week, I still managed to pull off a week I love thanks mostly to the three new sets I used from Kellie Stamps: Kings Park Alpha, Perfectly Imperfect and Coffee Loading.

When I'm taking my photos, I am TRYING to get them as light and bright as possible but with the lack of natural light around here at the moment, it is becoming increasingly harder to do. I guess I'll need to embrace my dark side for the next few months!

Cocoa Daisy Guest Designer :: The View From Here + Finished Insert walk through


This is the last page in my notebook from the Cocoa Daisy Traveler's notebook kit! I had so much fun filling up this little insert over the month and I'm so loving how it ended up!


This page was inspired by the colours of my photo (which matched the kit perfectly!) as well as the circles on the existing insert page. I love all the texture that I ended up with plus I can't get over how perfect that alpha stamp is!


The other pages in the notebook were a fun place to experiment and use up my supplies. The addition of the pink throughout stopped it becoming too matchy-matchy.

Traveler's Notebook :: Blah Blah Blah Coffee


It's release day over at Kellie Stamps and you know I couldn't resist creating another page in my TN with the new COFFEE LOADING stamp set! I used both the digital and clear stamps for this one because I needed to cover both sides of my spread with papers to cover up some stamping that had bled through from the other side.

Project Life 2019 :: Week 18


Instead of pulling out my newest supplies, I started digging through all my old favourites from *Feed Your Craft and Brandi Kincaid. And wouldn't you know it, I found the perfect stamps for each photo!

Instead of sticking to my "recipe" rule, I tried to get fancy and shock horror, I actually had to reprint a photo and start again this week. Also, TIP: Don't sew through Instax photos. I don't know what is in those things but it went everywhere!
