2015 Project Life Share

Sharing weeks four and five, using the Studio Calico Project Life kit Far Far Away for January. I will be using each month's kit up in it's entirety as much  as possible, and file away any left over bits or use them on PL inserts and Scrapbook pages. That's the plan for now anyway:)

Week 4: Loving the large wood veneer "JAN" for the title pocket, and some stitching through a few chipboard heart embellishments from the Jan kit as well. The font stickers are a cool vinyl like material, and they fit in the negative space of my photos well. All items are from the Studio Calico PL kit, except for the gold dot 4x6 card on the left page at top, and the "hello handsome" die cut
(from 2014 SC card kit).

 Week 5: using up the last of the beautiful cards designed by Leslie from "A Creative Mint" in the SC PL kit for Jan. Added cards from the "Dreamy" PL core kit by Heidi Swapp, couple pieces of washi and one flair badge. The stamps are from "Kellie Stamps" @GiveAGirlABlog, and the SC PL kit.

Thanks for visiting!

Project Life Share

For my up to date Project Life pages, follow me on Instagram, for those of you not on Instagram...

Week one: Studio Calico Project Life Kit Far Far Away for January. I just signed up for monthly again. Love this kit! The designer is the lady from A Creative Mint (Leslie). Going for a fresh and clean look this year with more white space.

Week Two: Studio Calico Far Far Away Kit still, and still loving the soft colors. Added some watercolor stripes I painted onto blank cards to go with this color scheme, easy peasy! The " What will you make of your today"  is a free printable from Amy Tangerine. LOVE her website, and she also has a free handbook for jumpstarting your creativity!

Week Three: That ballon Card from the Far Far Away Kit,  Gah ! So cute. I made it work for me by adding the Studio Calico wood veneer car, and typing with my vintage typewriter. My one little word for this year is ENCOURAGE! Fitbit emailed me this update of my total steps since Aug. 6th, pretty cool, through first week of January.

So I encourage you to paper craft some memories today!

Project Life 2015: Week 7

For week seven, I have some inserts for the PL album, and the great thing about Project Life is they have a bazillion different pocket page configurations to fit every conceivable picture size. If you haven't checked out the App yet, they have so many different page layouts there also. Win, win!

This page was made for part of the SC Challenge "Spread the Love", and personal journaling can be inserted in the back and fit in your family PL album. Love the 6x12 size!! Just added watercolor squares, last bits from January SC PL kit (Far Far Away), the chipboard words and pink hearts, gold sequins, and vinyl aqua hearts stickers, and used the Feb. SC PL kit Cirque stamp, "Love", and the rose gold strips cut into banners. The modern rose shapes were cut with my Cricut.

Love that Project Life works and fits into whatever you want it to be. People do weekly, monthly, inserts, full size scrap pages, it's endless people, endless possibilities! I LOVE THAT.
