Project Life Flow

Hey guys! I’ve been feeling kind of overwhelmed with my Project Life lately. My workflow just wasn’t serving me very well and it was stressing me out. The entire point of Project Life is to be FUN! So I stepped back for a while and let it marinate when all of a sudden–genius struck me. Well, I think it’s genius and I’ll tell you why!

December Daily Prep

December Daily Prep

I–like many others around the world–am partaking in December Daily again this year and boy am I excited! I completed my little album from 2014 with pride and I love looking back on all the happy holiday memories. Last year, however, I was back in school and working–a combination of which was way more than a full time commitment–and I fell off the December Daily bandwagon with all my beloved handpicked supplies left to collect dust. Until now, that is! Since I had already chosen supplies, purchased a mini kit, and made a *somewhat* concrete plan last year, but didn’t have the opportunity to do December Daily, I am repurposing those plans and am excited to tackle the challenge again this year!

'Dreamer' Scrapbook Layout

Hello again, lovely readers! I'm very excited to share this layout because it's been in the works for a while, and it's finally finished! Because I started the digital portion a while ago and never got a vision for how I wanted to finish it, I just allowed it to percolate until an idea came to me. I recently trimmed some strips off of the cards from the kit in my shop, 'Pumpkin Spice' and noticed that the lovely mix of prints and colors was really inspiring to me. I instantly had a vision of it laid like a colorful brick pattern along a spread ... and that spread was this 'Dreamer' layout!

'Hello Tennis' Scrapbook Layout

'Hello Tennis' Scrapbook Layout

Hi guys! I'm back today sharing a fun layered layout titled 'Hello Tennis'. One of my favorite parts of the September Kit 'Pumpkin Spice' is this fun jumbo dot confetti. To create this spread I printed a 4" x 9" panoramic photo from my trip to the US Open and adhered it to the top of my spread. I then layered alternating colors from the kit's confetti down the page. Once that was done, I grabbed a label from the kit and hand lettered the title and stamped the date on it, adhering it front and center on my page. To finish it off, I grabbed the mini wood veneer hearts from the Young at Heart Studio Calico Documenter Kit and scattered them throughout the spread for movement and texture. That was all! See below for more detailed photos of this page!
