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!

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!!
