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: 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!

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!

Take Ten Kits Creative Team :: Journey Kit: 1 Day, 2 Buses :: February 2015

I LOVE this month’s Journey kit!

This layout uses the Ballon 4×6 card, the blue and white Polka Dot 4×6 card, Geotag and Today’s Plan 3×4 cards, the Home 4×6 card, as well as the wood Duh piece. The wood stars are from a prior kit from Take ten Kits. The alphas are Creative Memories, from my stash.

My daughter and son took the bus for travel on the same day and I knew that would make a perfect layout for this month’s Journey kit and shows parts of their everyday lives.

The layout shows her departure and her arrival destination- perfect with the Go Where Your Heart Leads You card and the Geotag card.

Close up!

I love the dimension the pieces give.

I hope this layout gives you some ideas on how to use this month’s kit.

A Journey can be anything from travel to a life’s goal.

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. ūüôā

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!

This is my first sneak peek for the Take Ten Kits ‘My Story’ January kit!

This card and the sequins come in this month’s kit! I have not see these color sequins before so I was excited to use them. I sew them on with a tiny clear bead so they don’t fall off. The I tape the thread down on the back of the card.

Take Ten Kits :: Project Life :: Happy New Year! :: January 2015

Happy New Year!

It’s almost 2015. I’m always so excited when I get my kit that I make a layout usually pretty quickly after it comes. I like to make my layouts in advance. It motivates me to look at it and think about the pocket shapes I need to fill. This month’s Take Ten Kit December 2014 kit was perfect! I like all of the cards and the colors.

Above is the left side of my 2 page January 2015 layout.

:: :: ::

I cut up several cards to make this layout.

Even though I haven’t seen snow in about 7 years I still like the snowy, white, glittery, winter theme. So, to tie together all of the pieces, you will see that I put little bits of glitter paper here and there.

I wanted to use this TTK blue ‘Brand New Year’ card so I cut it up and spread it out. I didn’t want to cover it with a photo!

I love this TTK grey arrow acrylic!

In my mind these little white glitter dots are little snowflakes. And again, I live in California where it doesn’t snow.¬†

For the little dots I just used 2 sizes of a hole punch and used what came out.

The photo above is the right side of my January 2015 2 page layout using the December 2014 Take Ten Kit.

The ‘I Love The Person I’ve Become’ card from TTK December 2014 kit!

This card and star clip is from Take Ten Kits at http://www.thestudio29design.com

Sometimes we are afraid of doing some things. Hopefully this card will help us to remember through the year to do what we’re scared of.¬†

This card from Take Ten Kits goes perfectly with my ‘Wish it snowed in California’ theme. Again, I used the dots that came out from 2 different sized hole punches.

Here is the layout in my Project Life Album for my pocket scrapbook layouts. I had these month layout dividers from a gift so I thought I’d use them. Luckily for me, this one matched!

:: :: ::

Below is the entire Take Ten Kits December 2014 kit! I’m saving the other pieces for an upcoming layout. The ‘He Said, She Said’ cards look perfect for my wedding anniversary in February… And #Selfie? I could use that EVeRy month!!
