Take Ten Kits: Journey kit: Hot Air Balloon from the Stamp Set :: February 2015

I am not a stamper, exactly. But I do use the stamps every month that come in the Take Ten Kits- so I’m trying!

This stamp set immediately gave me ideas. I knew I wanted to make a bright pink balloon so I stamped in black onto a patterned piece of pink paper. The pattern was actually roses.

For the clouds I used a plain vellum and printed vellum- one of each for every cloud. And then I LOVE the fonts used for the words.

I also used foam pieces to life the images off of the 3×4 card.

Side view of the dimension!

I hope my 3×4 gives you ideas on how to use your stamps.

I’m just a beginner! But I’m giving it a go!

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.

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!!

Project Life Album :: 29th Anniversary :: August 2014

29 years is a long time. We celebrate the day we met every year, as well as our wedding anniversary. I used my Take Ten Kit for August 2014 as well as a few elements from earlier kits.

I cut this 29 out after drawing it freehand. I used a 3×4 card so I know what shape the 29 needed to be in. Then I added the date of our anniversary.

Our poor 15 year old had to photograph us at my request. He couldn’t stop laughing at us. I was trying to show that my dress had a bit of a vertical ruffle all the way to the floor. I love that dress! The card was absolutely perfect. My family iS my whole world. Even when they laugh at me.

I love the quote on this card! The colors and the arrows are perfect! I used a little cork arrow to show what we were launched into…and it was something great!!

The stamps, the star, the wood veneer cross in circle, the card – all came in the kit!

This polaroid card is so great! I had never used a letterpress card before and I love it!

This 12×12 pocket scrapbooking Anniversary page will face another page also with blues and greens.
