Project Life Album :: Flashback: Let’s Bake a Pie :: October 2014

This layout makes me feel and warm and fuzzy. My husband is the one who makes pie.

And the only pie he makes is his recipe for

::  Rustic Country Apple Pie  ::

And he always makes it on Thanksgiving.

For this layout I used the Take Ten Kit for October 2014.

More FaBuLoUs pieces: cards: Be Grateful, Fall Favorites and the Joy quote card.

The wood pieces: leaf, autumn, and Bushels of Fun banner

And the wash and Fun clip are also from this month. The little red chevron enamel is from a prior month’s kit.

Fall Favorites Take Ten Kits card. So many great things happen in the fall!

My son loves to help his dad make the pie! As you can tell by his face he is definitely having fun. Fun clip in October 2014 kit.

The final touches before the pies go into the oven. This is a serious job! And he’s having Bushels of fun. Card from this month’s Take Ten Kit.

Washi, Grateful card as well as the wood leaf are all from this month’s kit!

This Joy card is from this month’s take Ten Kit. At this time of year sometimes it’s easy to compare traditions that other people have that you may think are better or more fun. The grass is not greener on the other side. I looked. 🙂

The pies are soooo delicious!!! I’m so glad we all go to the trouble to make this day special. It’s usually just the 5 of us and with our busy schedules it’s nice to just have each other to concentrate on. The autumn wood piece is from October 2014’s Take Ten Kit.

I love this 2 page layout. My first time using the pages with the 4×4 pockets. I had to cut down the Joy card- I had to! I love it so much!

This Pie page will face the Plugged In page. You can find that page in another blog post: check it out!

Thank you take Ten Kits for another great kit!

Take Ten Kits :: Project Life :: Shopping :: August 2014

 I had the perfect shopping cards both large and small from Take Ten Kits for my shopping layout!

Even though we didn’t get his school clothes from Target, we are constantly going there for various items- it’s basically across the street from where we live.


My cat Chloe is looking at my Project Life album thinking about the scrapbooking stuff she needs.

My mother. Oh, how she loved shopping. Her favorite place was Loehmann’s by far. She passed away last year and this was the perfect place to keep the card that she passed down to me, and then my daughter. My daughter’s $250 prom dress was only $37 after she used the card and coupon. My mother and my daughter were very pleased about that!

My friend and I went out to an antique show on their opening day and we were very excited. It was pretty fun and then we went and had lunch afterwards. And on the tag, I wrote about the whole month of August, not just about the photos.

 This layout wasn’t too fussy and didn’t have a lot of embellishments but the graphics were so great it didn’t need any!

Take Ten Kits: only $10 a month without commitment! Opt out any month.

Project Life Album :: Moving Back to the Dorm! :: September 2014

My daughter moves back to the dorm! I know she looks forward to having her independence while she’s there.

For this 2 page 12×12 layout I used the Take Ten Kit for September 2014 and it was perfect!

The pieces from the kit: Wood and enamel chevron pieces Sequins Stamps Flair and cards! Rainbow, 4×6 Someday, Week of, and Rainbow Triangles , 3×4

I love these new wood and enamel pieces! And the sequins add to the beautiful colors in the September Kit. The alphas are from a prior month’s kit.

I sewed the sequins onto the paper. I stacked 2 sequins and topped with a tiny bead- just ran the thread through all three and tied it behind the card. I also taped down the thread for security. The quote: ‘Someday is right now.’ reminds me that every day is special and the photos help remind us that we celebrated the everyday. The big and small occasions of life. I want to remember them all.

Here’s a side view of the sewn sequins. This is the first time I’ve used a Week Of card since I do monthly but it was perfect for the week she moved back to the dorm. I cut down both cards to fit my horizontal pockets.

The rainbow triangles and the rainbow chevron pieces- oh! the colors! I needed to see them together! And not covered. They are brilliant.

Funny sign in the dorm when they arrived. She’s in an all girl, 4 room dorm. The ‘#’ stamp is from a prior kit, and part of the ‘#selfie’ stamp.

I am fairly new to Project Life- coming up to my one year anniversary of doing pocket scrapbooking- and i am really new to stamping. First time stamping a photo. A little shaky but I still like the way it looks. And the Happy Flair was perfect. I have not seen her on screen before so I was happy.

This is the other side to the 2 page 12×12 layout. She’s moved into the dorm, started classes and rehearsal, and came home for a family dinner. Both younger kids started school: sophomore in college and sophomore in high school!

I LOVE the #selfie stamp from a prior month. It’s so current and trendy. And people are still taking selfies- maybe more now than before!

More sewn on sequins and stamping. From the kit: Sequins Rainbow Stripes, 3×4

Perfect sign to end my layout. Good thing I looked up and noticed it! I love using my Tiny Attacher to attach a few little things. A little more fun than a normal size stapler. Why? Maybe because it’s tiny. And new. The chevron wood pieces are from the kit and the alphas are from a prior kit.

It’s always so satisfying finishing a new layout! And I like using lots of pieces from one kit on one layout! It challenges me out of my comfort zone of being a new pocket scrapbooker. Trying new things!

I love having my Take Ten Kits subscription! They have so many fun pieces and it’s always exciting to see what it’s going to be about. And they always have add ons which are fun to look at and choose if I want.

Take Ten Kits:

And the best part of Take Ten Kits is:

There is no subscription contract! Sign up to get on the list and if you see the kit and want it after reveal, then buy it. If you don’t, then you can pass and let someone else on the list have it. Then next month, well, you still have your same number in line, and same thing: if you want it, great, and if you don’t, that’s ok, too!! You will love it. I haven’t passed yet. And it’s not a ton of stuff that it starts to pile up- and I appreciate that part of it.

$10 Take Ten Kits…TEN dollars!!
