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. πŸ™‚

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

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!!

Each person brings something different to the table and I am excited to see how they use the kits and inspire our members (you!) to use the products offered each month.

Take Ten Kits :: Project Life :: My Daughter’s Southern California Trip :: June 2014

Right now: Blog Hop begins Sat, June 27 and goes through Sun, June 28! Join us!!

This is my Project Life layout using the Take Ten Kit from June 2014.
Let me take you though and show you how I did my layout. The photos
are from my daughter’s trip to Southern California. She had a great time!

Since I am fairly new to Project Life I sometimes lay out my pages with post-it notes reminding me where I want certain photos and which papers I wanted to use.

I have laid out all of the pieces of the Take Ten kit for June. I can see what I’d like to use, what colors match with which photos and what kind of journaling or stories I can tell with each pocket.

I’m going to use these three cards but I’m going to cut them up to use them, to show them off, in my layout.

I cut the blue border off of the ‘_ out of 5’ card to use it with the Dish Duty card.

I cut the card and then put a piece on either side of the 4×4 Instagram photo.

I will use the orange striped piece of the other card on this one and then both sides of the layout will coordinate. I like to coordinate. πŸ™‚

I liked the cards so much and wanted to use pieces of them all over! πŸ™‚

Where to use these bright enamels? The colors match the flair perfectly.

I used the enamels here as checkmarks rating how great their trip was: 5 out of 5!

The flair brings the colors out in this photo and I placed it under the 3 important people.

The enamels and the flair add great dimension!

For the wood veneer stars I added some glittery paint to just a few.

Each month Take Ten Kits have add-ons. This month I added a few things. On this my layout it looks like I went a little crazy with the geotags. My intention was to use them, like, 3 times. But then I realized it was kinda fun to mark every place they went. They went many places in those few short days! And now, they’re all marked.

Why, here’s one now!

Here is the first photo, the one of them leaving on their trip. I used an enamel house, the mini ABC’s, and also a geotag which was all mounted on the blue striped 4×6 card.

Here is side 1: the start of their trip. All of the cards are from the kit, as is the white ABC’s, the enamel, the geotags, and the stars. The orange letters are from my home stash. And the Tiki Juice Bar stamping was done to cover-up a mistake. πŸ™‚ I love the way the panoramic looks filling the bottom two pockets. I used a rolling stamp to make the dates of their trip on the ‘Special’ card.

Here is side 2: the end of their trip and coming home. (Waaayyyyy too late for my comfort.) All of the cards, geotags, stars, enamels, flair, and the white mini ABC’s came from the kit. The letter stamps and the rolling stamp are from my stash.

And the last photo of their trip. They arrived home tired, grouchy and exhausted but safe. I love the blue constellation card- the color with the stars was a perfect way to end the layout!

Here are the other items I used in the layout: Mister Huey’s gold spray with the trio of Stickles for the stars, and the rolling stamps by Dear Lizzy and Amy Tangerine.

And here we are, back where we started from! My finished Project Life layout with the Take Ten Kit!

Here is the entire Take Ten Kit for June 2014! And can you believe it’s only $10??!!! I love the Take Ten kits. If you need to opt out for the month there is never a penalty. There’s not a months long commitment. Just a fabulous kit every month. And the add-ons are pretty great, too! > Take Ten Kit Artists for June 2014: 3×4 cards: Sweet Stamp Shop 4×6 cards: Yellow Lime Studio Enamels: Pink Fresh Studio White mini ABC’s: Studio Calico Flair: Samantha Peyton *add-on Geotags: Studio Calico (photo credit to Colie Kumar, this photo only)
