Project Life :: College Visit :: October 2015

Sure, he’s only a junior but it’s never too early to look at colleges.

Especially if it’s in San Francisco.

Yes, it was foggy. But it cleared up.

The grey-brown cards from Becky Higgin’s Prismatic and Picturesque kits are perfect for this city layout.

I used some rose gold dotted wash tape and a few puffy stickers.

And to finish it off, a trusty date stamp.

One college down, several more to go.

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!!

Project Life Album :: Flashback: Adventure Awaits! :: October 2014

For this layout I used the Take Ten Kits October 2014 Kit!

Probably the fastest layout I’ve ever done: simple, sweet and lots of color.

Outdoors and woodsy. I love how they used photograph cards in this kit. Perfect for fall photos.

I used white letters to match the white letters on the lower corner.

Love the wood veneer key! I attach it with a somewhat stiff wire- I just wrapped it around and around, poking through the paper.

Thanks Take Ten Kits for making my layout super easy.

I love the way it looks!

Project Life Album :: Flashback: Plugged In! :: October Kit 2014

This was a very easy yet colorful layout!

I used 2 Take Ten Kit cards: Plugged In, from a prior month, and

the bright leaves from this months’ kit

Also from Take Ten Kits October 2014:

wood veneer leaf, orange leaf acrylic and the striped wash tape

Love the wash and orange leaf! And the Plugged In card from a prior kit is so relevant right now!

Colorful leaves and wood veneer leaf were perfect together and made the layout so cozy.

I love the way my Plugged In layout came out!

This layout will face the Pie layout featured in another blog post- look for it!

Take Ten Kits are so versatile and pieces can be used for other months, too. Take Ten Kits has a Facebook page, as well as a website:

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!

Project Life :: A Week in the Life :: September 2014

This was my first A Week in the Life layout! It was fun choosing a ‘theme’ and I decided that I wanted to try the ‘sherbet colors’ look that using the Rhonna Designs app for iPhones gives. My life isn’t perfect and I’m not into making it look like it’s perfect so I knew this would be interesting. But my life is also a little slow since my kids are just about grown so it was going to be, as all of my Project Life layouts are, All About Me.

My entire color inspiration came from the A Week in the Life card! I just loved it and I didn’t even know the card was in a set I had.

Sherbet-y colors! Yummy.

The first part of my A Life in the Week:

Sunday: The first day of my week. It was about cleaning up party messes. And my cat Chloe, I tried to make it look like it was all her fault, but it wasn’t.

Sunday: My husband congratulates me with a balloon from his birthday. Apparently, I rock because I get to renew my driver’s license through the mail.

Monday: I ate ice cream that I’m not supposed to and I think that’s photo worthy.

Tuesday: First day of Autumn was spent doing lots of chores instead of my list because I was without a car (smog). Ugh.

(I still haven’t finished everything on this list, 2 weeks later)

Tuesday: My son’s artwork was chosen to be used for this Touming Magazine 7″ vinyl. Very exciting!!

And the second half of my A Week in the Life:

Wednesday: I celebrated the First Day of Autumn today since I got my car back. I pulled this shirt out of my ‘get rid of’ bag and decided to wear it and I tackled my huge list. P.S. At the end of the day I remembered why this shirt was in the get rid of bag: it sucks. The collar is limp and it’s ill-fitting. It goes back in!

Classic me motto: Do it anyway. And, yes, I Instagrammed it. My husband and I made these paper feathers. I cut and painted them, and my husband sewed them. I think they came out pretty cool.

Thursday: I went to our pharmacy, cleaned up and decorated for Fall while my husband worked.

Friday: I packed up more of my Creative Memories products that I sold online. At this point, I just want to get rid of what I won’t use! Off to the post office I went. Saturday: I did some things around the house and then went to mass. I heard this reading today and it meant a lot to me on this afternoon. Now if I could just convince this for others…

Saturday: After mass, I went home, helped my son get ready for the dance and I drove him out there. And then in a few hours, I drove back out, picked him up and took him to In and Out for after-dance food. And I sold more of my items so it was a win-win day, week…all of it. My life may be slow and boring but it’s MY slow and boring. And I won’t bother you with another ‘Week in My Life’ again for awhile. You’re welcome!

It was fun, colorful, new, and I had a great time documenting every little bit. Yes, it’s only two pages- I told you my life was slow! 🙂
