Take Ten Kits Creative Team :: Celebrate kit :: My Garden Burst Open! :: March 2015

The new Take Ten Kits March 2015 kit Celebrate is FaBuLoUs!!!

For this layout I used 2 of the 3×4 cards: Green Stripe and the Little Things. I also used the custom Emoji stamp designed by Take Ten Kits owner and designer Sara Mitchell! I also used enamel dots from a prior TTK. I used the wood grain paper, other green paper and more dots from my stash.

We had rain for a week or so and then a few warm days and when I went outside my front door, my garden had burst! The flowers were all opening! I guess spring came early to California this year.

I LOVE this card- I wish I had more than one.

The little dots are cute and they add a little dimension.

I cut this 4×6 in half-ish and added the date I went out into the garden. I decided to do the journaling in my own writing which I don’t do a lot.

The emoji stamps are so cute! And they’re big, which I like.

Oh! So many feelings when I saw the opened flowers in the garden. Unfortunately, even though I take allergy medicine every day, I started sneezing and sneezing so I went back inside.

I really enjoyed using these pieces in this layout. I have many more pieces left to use in a different Celebrate layout!!

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. 🙂

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

Find them here: http://www.thestudio29design.com

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!!

Take Ten Kits Creative Team :: Resolutions kit :: January 2015

Take Ten Kits Creative Team member here!

This is one of the first layouts in my 2015 Project Life Album.

I used the Take Ten Kits December 2014 kit. I loved how the colors are bright and have a feeling of a positive 2015. I am 52 years old and I believe that selfies are an important part of my albums since it is basically a photo journal of the life I share with my family as well as a couple of friends.

The rainbow cards are from the Take Ten Kits, as well as the 2 tiny arrows.

I used leftover pink paper to tie the rainbow pockets and the pink ones together.

The top card lists the best parts of 2014. The lower card I write about living each day without planning too far into the future. I like to tackle each day as it shows up.

Oh, the things I resolve to do! So far I have not been successful in any of them but it’s only the third week of January so I still have some time. 🙂

I resolve to (dot, dot, dot)

This was one of the easiest layouts I’ve ever done. And one of the brightest. I like the way the bold Sharpie looks on the bottom numbered Take Ten Kits card.

I wish you a very successful 2015! And enjoy working on your Project Life album. Jump right in and get stuff done!

Project Life :: 40 Days of December (it’s my version) :: 2014

Welcome to my *FiRsT EvEr* Days of December 2014!

Let me first say that I had no idea what I was doing. This is only my first Project Life album. Well, it was going in my PL album for 2014. I was hearing about all kinds of projects to do and pockets to make all year so it doesn’t surprise me that I got confused. So, in an earlier post about my ’17 Days of Thankful’ (see earlier blog post) I explained that I heard about the 30 Days of Thankful and then a few weeks later I heard about December Daily. Seriously…in my head I thought they were the same thing!! So, I mapped mine all out. Starting with Thanksgiving, right? Thankful? Made sense to me. So then I decided to go until January 5th, which is the day my youngest returns to high school. So I would get the entire holiday season. So I gave a pocket for each of the now 40 Days…of Thankful? December Daily Thankful? Daily Thankful? Holiday Daily? In my head (I’m in my head a lot), I had it all covered and then I saw new posts and I realize that it’s 2 separate projects. Not only that but people make a totally separate album for December Daily. Well, I have a 12×12 that I keep all of my Christmases in (I’m working on our 5th Christmas album) so there was no way I was going to make another album. I decided to leave my now 40 Days (of Crazy) in the 2014 album, and a pocket a day was great for me. So, that’s what I did. And it’s finished!! I kinda like this way of doing it and I just might do another 40 Days in 2015!

I saw that other people were making little added ‘pages’ with transparencies and I really liked the look of it so I added a few in my album.

Here are pages 1 & 2, November 27 – December 7th, minus the transparency.

My title pocket!

I decided to use gold pieces here and there.

Thanksgiving Weekend!

We don’t have an Elf but I saw this photo and I had to add it to my album. For some reason it reminds me of the naughtiness of the childhood of my now 15 year old.

The right side of my layout.

I loved the Freckled Fawn Embellishment kit that I got from Take Ten Kits! http://www.thestudio29design.com

Here’s a better photo of my first transparency in my album.

Here are pages 3 & 4, December 8 – 20.

I was so happy to find lots of pink for my DD album!

Here’s another transparency- pink! And a ‘Have a Holly…’ tag!

…and back of the transparency! I was lucky to find a pink one!

These are pages 5 & 6, December 21 – 31. With more transparency pages added!

Oh, I love these 3 pockets together!

I made 2 tabs for the transparencies. (I really like that word- transparencies)

Christmas cookies!

Christmas Morning!

New Year’s Eve!

Last page! January 1 – 5, 2015!

Happy New Year!

(I may have over bought for this year…looks like I’ll HAVE to do it again next year!)

I had a great time making these pages in 2014 and I’m sure I’ll make them again in 2015!

Thanks for looking! I wish you a fabulous 2015!
