Take Ten Kits Creative Team :: Journey kit :: Going to ACTF! :: February 2015

I made this layout with the Take Ten Kit February Journey kit!

The pieces I used are the 4×6 Airplane card, and the Sky, Numbers, Arrows and Stripes 3×4 cards. I also used the white Geotag clip, and the cork World piece.

The alphas are from a prior Take Ten Kit.

My daughter went to ACTF in Washington state with her university.

She had a great time.

I used a wood star from my stash on the cork piece to show her location.

I love the dimension the different pieces give.

I typed out the journaling and cut it to fir in the spaces.

I like the way it looks.

I put these 2 cards together on a 4×6 piece of paper. My daughter and her team did Improv there and they had a great time.

I used the alphas from a prior kit.

I used just a half piece of a 12×12 pocket page to make this layout. I made another half piece of the same page for another layout.

I hope this layout gives you ideas for this kit, or any pieces you may have in your stash!

Take Ten Kits Creative Team :: Journey Kit: 1 Day, 2 Buses :: February 2015

I LOVE this month’s Journey kit!

This layout uses the Ballon 4×6 card, the blue and white Polka Dot 4×6 card, Geotag and Today’s Plan 3×4 cards, the Home 4×6 card, as well as the wood Duh piece. The wood stars are from a prior kit from Take ten Kits. The alphas are Creative Memories, from my stash.

My daughter and son took the bus for travel on the same day and I knew that would make a perfect layout for this month’s Journey kit and shows parts of their everyday lives.

The layout shows her departure and her arrival destination- perfect with the Go Where Your Heart Leads You card and the Geotag card.

Close up!

I love the dimension the pieces give.

I hope this layout gives you some ideas on how to use this month’s kit.

A Journey can be anything from travel to a life’s goal.

Take Ten Kits Creative Team :: My Story kit :: End of the Month Selfies :: January 2015

I LOVED this month’s Take Ten Kit ‘My Story’ for January!

I decided to make this layout about how I had been feeling lately. I live with chronic back problems and sometimes that gets overwhelming, however I must always create. It always lifts me up. I am a big believer in finding your happy life. Sometimes, it gets tough looking for it, but never give up wanting a happy life. And the last pocket insert sounds like a downer and, you know, some days just go like that. I tend to document happy life events but sometimes I also make one’s like this- although it’s not too often. 🙂

The last items from the ‘My Story’ Take Ten Kits:

Black doily, puffy Beautiful, Today was a Great Day and the Happiness is.. stickers, as well as the 2015 circle.

I love this Take Ten Kits black doily and the ‘Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful’ puffy sticker exclusive for Take Ten Kits, designed by Take Ten Kits Sara Mitchell and made by Pink Fresh Studio for us!

If you’re looking at this, I’ll be you also must create! I cannot live without it!!

Take Ten Kits puffy ‘Today Was a Great Day’ puffy sticker, and the 2015 circle both designed by Sara Mitchell, owner of Take Ten KIts

Find them here: http://www.thestudio29design.com

I cut the black doily in half so I could balance out the layout. With a ‘Happiness is..’ puffy sticker made and designed exclusively to Take Ten Kits!

Well, thanks for looking at this ‘realization’ layout. I used selfies I took one night after a busy day and used different Instagram filters. Gotta love those filters!

The next post will be more uplifting, I promise!!

Take Ten Kits Creative Team :: Resolutions kit :: January 2015

Take Ten Kits Creative Team member here!

This is one of the first layouts in my 2015 Project Life Album.

I used the Take Ten Kits December 2014 kit. I loved how the colors are bright and have a feeling of a positive 2015. I am 52 years old and I believe that selfies are an important part of my albums since it is basically a photo journal of the life I share with my family as well as a couple of friends.

The rainbow cards are from the Take Ten Kits, as well as the 2 tiny arrows.

I used leftover pink paper to tie the rainbow pockets and the pink ones together.

The top card lists the best parts of 2014. The lower card I write about living each day without planning too far into the future. I like to tackle each day as it shows up.

Oh, the things I resolve to do! So far I have not been successful in any of them but it’s only the third week of January so I still have some time. 🙂

I resolve to (dot, dot, dot)

This was one of the easiest layouts I’ve ever done. And one of the brightest. I like the way the bold Sharpie looks on the bottom numbered Take Ten Kits card.

I wish you a very successful 2015! And enjoy working on your Project Life album. Jump right in and get stuff done!

Project Life :: We Need A Vacation!! :: 2015

Seriously though, we need a vacation.

I just want to get out of here and go somewhere else.

A travel booklet came in the mail and it inspired me to do this layout. I believe I can call it recycling. And possibly repurposing.

Here some ideas of where we could go:

Take a pick. Just pick somewhere. Anywhere.

If I had to choose, pathetically, the first place I would go would be Disneyland. My almost 16 year old just told me he has no recollection of going there! We took him twice. How is that possible?

Just remembered…we found out we were pregnant with him during our Disneyland trip in 1998! I did a pregnancy test right before we went. I needed to know! I was so tired and sick…anyway. I choose Disneyland!

Take Ten Kits :: Project Life :: Happy New Year! :: January 2015

Happy New Year!

It’s almost 2015. I’m always so excited when I get my kit that I make a layout usually pretty quickly after it comes. I like to make my layouts in advance. It motivates me to look at it and think about the pocket shapes I need to fill. This month’s Take Ten Kit December 2014 kit was perfect! I like all of the cards and the colors.

Above is the left side of my 2 page January 2015 layout.

:: :: ::

I cut up several cards to make this layout.

Even though I haven’t seen snow in about 7 years I still like the snowy, white, glittery, winter theme. So, to tie together all of the pieces, you will see that I put little bits of glitter paper here and there.

I wanted to use this TTK blue ‘Brand New Year’ card so I cut it up and spread it out. I didn’t want to cover it with a photo!

I love this TTK grey arrow acrylic!

In my mind these little white glitter dots are little snowflakes. And again, I live in California where it doesn’t snow. 

For the little dots I just used 2 sizes of a hole punch and used what came out.

The photo above is the right side of my January 2015 2 page layout using the December 2014 Take Ten Kit.

The ‘I Love The Person I’ve Become’ card from TTK December 2014 kit!

This card and star clip is from Take Ten Kits at http://www.thestudio29design.com

Sometimes we are afraid of doing some things. Hopefully this card will help us to remember through the year to do what we’re scared of. 

This card from Take Ten Kits goes perfectly with my ‘Wish it snowed in California’ theme. Again, I used the dots that came out from 2 different sized hole punches.

Here is the layout in my Project Life Album for my pocket scrapbook layouts. I had these month layout dividers from a gift so I thought I’d use them. Luckily for me, this one matched!

:: :: ::

Below is the entire Take Ten Kits December 2014 kit! I’m saving the other pieces for an upcoming layout. The ‘He Said, She Said’ cards look perfect for my wedding anniversary in February… And #Selfie? I could use that EVeRy month!!

Take Ten Kits :: Project Life :: First page of my new album! :: January 2015

A New Beginning!

This is a Take Ten Kits December 2014 card. It inspired my front page layout for my 2015 Project Life Album. I LOVE it!!

I decided to be bright and cheerful for my first page. My 2014 front page was more subdued. This will only be my 2nd PL Album. But I have documented ALL of my layouts so far in my blog here.

So I found this card at Michael’s, I believe it’s Heidi Swapp. It’s a flip up card and the last paper of the card fits into one of the 4×4 pockets.

I love the Hello. Perfect for the new beginning of 2015.

The Thickers are from a previous month of Take Ten Kits.

The stamps are FaBuLoUs and I love the way the handwriting looks fancy! I really have no idea what to do for stamping but I’m working on it.

Here’s a side view of the flip card.

First and second cards flipped up with the stamp.

And what the last paper looks like sitting in the bottom 4×4 pocket.

And the Take Ten Kits December 2014 card that started it all! I love it.

Now all I have to do is think about the journaling I’m going to write for . . .

My year

My resolution

and

My revolution!

You can find Take Ten Kits on Facebook: Take Ten Kits – just ask to join the group and you can go to their website to check out all of their past kits and see if you like them! The 2014 price for the kits is $10. TEN dollars! It’s unbelievable. But you need to get on the list for them.
