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

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!!

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!!
