Project Life :: Goodnight, Sweet Neumann :: October 2015

We had Nuemann since he was a little, chubby 8 weeks old Pug puppy. He was 15 years old this month. We will miss him.

He was 15 years old on the left, and 13 on the right.

We had a great time with him.

Here he is with his sister Pearl. She was adorable. They were only 6 months apart and always together.

She was mostly deaf and blind in one eye so she followed Neumann everywhere he went. They loved each other. But they’re together again and running free. We enjoyed them for so many years. For that I am thankful.

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.

Project Life Album :: October 2014

The month of October! What a fun month it was to choose the colors and cards for. Plus it’s fall- a new season, a new beginning. And apparently I love a patchwork of colors.

This is the left side of the double 12×12 October 2014 layout in my Project Life album.

I love using small pieces of paper and my Tiny Attacher.

The World Series- the amazing games they played! And babysitting a tortoise. (He is pretty cute.)

My first Project Life kit: Holidays and Seasons. I actually bought two and I’m still using both. I like the colors and the fonts.

This is the right side of the 12×12 double October 2014 layout.

I have a tag for every month to summarize what I did, and what the family did that month.

The tags can slide in and out. This month’s tag even has sequins and beads.

For this month, I also made a slide card for Halloween- just for fun. Text on one side and a photo on the other. I also used more sequins and beads on the skeleton eyes.

Driving a few hours out to visit our 99 year old aunt. I thought it would be fun to add a geotag to indicate a new location.

Here are both pages, side by side. The way they sit in my Project Life album. I think it looks very autumn-y. Happy Fall!

Project Life :: Flashback: Snow in Virginia City! :: October 2014

Creative Team Member here for Take Ten Kits by The Studio 29 Design!

On this layout I used the last few pieces of my October 2014 kit. I also used many pieces from former months from Take Ten Kits. Because I wanted to use this color theme, I went back to some photos from many years ago documenting our trip to Virginia City, Nevada. The last time we took a trip there was the last time we were in snow! We had a great time.

The October 2014 Take Ten Kit pieces are:

Sweater Weather card

White with Blue Circles card, on the bottom center (I cut up to use in a few places)

Ampersand card

Prior piece: Birch Tree card

The photos mixed with the cards from the Take Ten Kits give a very wintery feel. Cozy, cold and you can tell a big holiday is coming soon.

Prior kit: White ABC’s

Sweater weather! It was so cold! Well, because we’re used to California weather.

Prior kit: MTWTF card, light blue, on the right, above

(I cut up card to use in more that one spot)

Prior piece: Wood and Enamel Wood Drops

Lots of blue, not too many embellishments: the Wood Drops, the ABC’s, a few clouds stickers raised with foam dots, round white pieces cut with a hole punch for the snow…and I think that’s it!

I love the way this layout came out!

.. The kits are only $10 ..

Ten Dollars!

I like them because it’s not an overwhelming amount of product that just sits, and then gathers dust while more kits pile up. No! You use your kit pieces quickly. If you go to the website, you can see all of the kits and you can see for yourself how great the kit contents are. I am looking forward to next month’s kit already!

Project Life Album :: Halloween Flashback! :: October 2014

Halloween! Years gone by. Little kids now grown. I’m the mom- I can indulge in old, adorable photos of my kids.

ALL of the pieces I used are from the Take Ten Kits October Kit by Studio 29 Design. The wood pieces: pumpkin, jack o’lantern and labels, from a prior month, I used for name tags. Also from Take Ten Kits: sequins that I sewed on. Also from the kit this month: the adorable cards: black card with moon and bats and the pink princess ‘Trick or Treat’. The papers mats are just papers from my stash. And I found a matching pink paper to match the prunes card. I love the way it came out. Black, white, and pink- interesting colors for a Halloween layout!

Left side:

I love this page! I sew my sequins on cause I want them to stay on.

That jack o’lantern wood piece by Take Ten Kits is FaBuLoUS!!! And more sequin sewing.

The moon card!!! I love it!! Also by Take Ten Kits! Find them here: http://www.studio29design.com

I LOVE this card, too! It works even in a ‘non-Halloween’ color. I like that the Take Ten Kits puts untraditional pieces in the monthly kits. I also sewed sequins, layered them and a bead on top!

Sequn on the tooth! I couldn’t resist. I like it.

Right side:

Adorable Halloween kids.

I love this pumpkin wood piece. And I love it just the way it is. The letters are from a prior kit.

The wood label is from a prior Take Ten Kits.

Sequins on the eyes. Just for fun.

IMG_4872 It’s funny when you wear a costume like this, even your best friend could walk by you and not know who you are. That happened when she wore this costume to her school Halloween party.

I LOVE my Take Ten Kits subscription!!

It’s only $10 with no commitment. You just ask to be on the Take Ten Kits Facebook page group OR go to their website and message her from there. You get all kinds of goodies including stamps that are exclusive to Take Ten Kits. Also, I really like that the kits are manageable and you don’t have a bunch of products laying around and building up.

Try it for a month- you’ll like it!
