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!

New beginnings…in my scrapbook world!

Welcome to my new blog! I am happy to be here and to share my new creative adventures with you.

I started out as a regular scrapbooker about 15 years ago with no knowledge at all about any of it. We were taking a trip to Cabo San Lucas and I knew I wanted to make an album with the photos I took. Well, I finished that album fast and I was hooked. Finally, I found a creative thing to do that involved many of the things I love: photos, writing, family, heritage, graphics, fonts, quotes, words, paper, photo albums and cutting little pieces of paper. About 5 years after that, I decided to become a Creative Memories Consultant. I was a CMC for 10 years, until the company closed and left many scrapbookers with a feeling of being lost. And then I discovered scrapbook shopping sites, local scrapbook stores, as well as other kinds of scrapbooking.

Which led me to Project Life. Oh boy. That’s a lot of fun! Each tiny pocket is like it’s own scrapbook page! I still work on my regular scrapbooks, mostly 12×12 size. But my Project Life album is all about me. No one in my family is interested in MY view of our life. I do the layouts by month and for this first album. I started in in October 2013 and plan to document my year from one birthday to the next. After that, I will decide if I will continue in that form, or move back primarily to regular scrapbooking.

I still work on albums for each of my 3 kids, ages adult to teen. I still enjoy that. I am still using up my CM products that I have left. BUT, as I said above, I also discovered the new-to-me scrapbooking which uses ephemera, one photo or many, ribbon, string, paper text, PL-like cards, stapling, sewing, ephemera, and even PL elements. So when I say I am staring a new creative venture, I’m not kidding. My eyes are wide open to everything I never looked at before. You may be familiar with other kinds, but I was not. I study the different kinds of scrapbooking, looking at the different kinds of photographs, looking at every element before I jump into my own project.

This is a lot of fun for me! Come and see what I’m up to. It’s all new to me. 🙂
