Project Life Tuesday

Happy Project Life Tuesday!

For this week’s page spread I went back a week just because I wanted to share my pages with the OHDEERME embellishment kit last week. These are the pages that come before the ones I shared last week. :)

PL1

Here’s a shot of both pages. I used DESIGN A page protectors (my go-to page protectors) and also I used the super cute 6×8 DESIGN 4 page protector, too for a little insert that I’m going to talk to you about in just a bit! ;)

I used the Confetti Edition that I designed as well. Also scattered throughout the cards you’ll see some older scrapbook label stickers from October Afternoon (I can’t get enough of those – they are PERFECT for Project Life!) and of course my Project Life date stamp and my Tim Hotlz tiny attacher. :)

PL2

Here’s the left side. :)

PL3

Here’s a close up of this 4×6 card. Luke had these SUPER adorable monster PJs that I got him late last year. He LOVED them and wore them ALL of the time (at his request) and well when he outgrew them I was so torn. I wanted to keep them in his little baby box that I have for each of my kids, but then he got this big chocolate stain on the top and I thought hmmm … I could totally just cut out a couple of these monsters and put them on a 4×6 card and so that’s what I did. Honestly, his baby box is a bit full (can we say I have a hard time letting go of my babies things?) and so this was the perfect way to incorporate this sweet memory and these sweet jammies. ;)

PL4

I ALMOST thought about redoing this 4×6 card because I was a bit too energetic when I stamped the date and so it’s messed up a bit, but that’s REAL life and so I just left it. I can’t stare at it too long though! Hahaha! Moving on! ;)

PL5

Another close up of the left side. :)

PL6

This is a 4×6 photo that I just put some stickers on and some alphabet stickers from a Studio Calico Project Life kit a month or so ago back. Yep, that guy’s name is “Wally.” Wanted to remember that. That’s Jack’s little friend. ;)

insertfront

This is the front of the insert that I included this week. Once every year I love to do a little “currently” type thing for my kids and I ask them the same questions. So for Caylin, I thought it would be a neat idea to use this little 6×8 page protector and include a “currently” card, a recent photo of her and a few other little goodies about her.

insert3

The green “hello lovely life” is from my Confetti Edition. I actually just cut it out from a 3×4 card and then paced it on a plain 3×4 card using some foam squares for a bit of dimension. All little embellishments are from Freckled Fawn. :)

insert4

Here’s a close up of the little “currently” card and the “REMEMBER” card is from my edition as well. :)

nsert-back

Here’s the back of the insert. She wrote her name on one of the lined 3×4 Project Life cards and then I included this sweet little post-it note to me on it as well. The little wooden heart is from Lawn Fawn and the epoxy heart and stamp are from Freckled Fawn.

insertback2

She also drew this little piece of art for me to slip in and then I included a picture of something she is loving right now – Pikachu! ;) I’m thinking I’ll do the same for both Jack and Luke, but mix it up a bit with what I include since they can’t really write their names just yet. It’ll be a sweet way to look back on them this year though, I think! :)

PL7

Right side. :)

PL8

I was sure to get that RIGHT NOW card in there and also, of course, I used a photo template from my friend Tracy to get those three pictures on that 4×6 photo. :) Love how you can add a little title or caption, too!

PL9

I took a picture of a sweet note Caylin wrote to me on some of her school work and included it on this card. I have a thing for printing my Instagram photos out 2×2 and then putting them on 3×4 journaling cards. I just love it. :)

Of course I had to take a picture when my Confetti Edition arrived at my doorstep for the first time! Eeeeek! I thought that sticker was appropriate for more than one reason! Ha!

PL10

Well, that’ll do it for today’s Project Life Tuesday! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a blessed day!

XOXO!

Project Life Tuesday

Happy Project Life Tuesday!

I’m sharing some pages today and using the April OHDEERME Embellishment kit to snazzy them up a bit! ;) I love how the Freckled Fawn kits are PERFECT for adding a bit of depth, texture and embellishing to Project Life pages without being too overwhelming and there’s always plenty of goodies left for other projects, too!

Here we go!

both

Here’s a shot of both pages. I used DESIGN A page protectors and also a DESIGN 4 page protector which is a 6×8 page protector with 4 3×4 slots. I recently got some of them and LOVE them! They’re so cute to add to the middle of your pages. Not sure why I get so giddy about them, but they are just the perfect little size to include from time to time. ;) The kits that I used are: my Confetti Edition (yay!) and I also used a couple of cards from Cathy Z’s value kit.

You better believe that I took a shot of me with my kit before I opened it! Ha! I’m a dork, but it had to be done. ;) The circle photo and the four square photo pictures are both photo templates that I LOVE from my friend, Tracy. Told you I ALWAYS use them. Hahaha! ;)

closeup3

Here’s a close up of the circle photo. Also, can we just take a second to say just how delicious the frozen lemonade at Chick-Fil-A is? YUMMY. Ok, carry on. ;)

closeup2

This little 3-d embellishment that I included in the middle of this 4×6 photograph is from the April kit! It has a little geotag graphic in the middle of it. Super cute!

closeup1

My daughter made me this little “love bug” as she called it the other day. I used a piece of the paper from my 6×6 Confetti pad, cut it down to 4×6 and then stuck this sweet piece on it. :)

insert1

Here’s the front of the insert I used. I wanted to just put some photos of the little egg hunt we had last weekend in it.

insert3

Those yellow letters are in the kit as well and are super cute and versatile! Love the font and the color! PERFECT for Spring/Easter pages and photos! The “hunt” stickers are some SUPER old stickers that I have from way back. It’s time to start putting the goodies I still have to use! SO proud I busted them out and used them! Hahaha! ;)

insert-closeup2

I made a little banner lift thingie for the insert. Just took a strip of yellow cardstock and folded it on the side of the page protector. Stapled it using my handy dandy tiny attacher (LOVE that thing) and then placed a super cute green heart epoxy sticker that’s in the kit directly on it. Done!

insertback

Here’s the back of the insert. Just some more photos and one of my 3×4 cards with some journaling on it about the day. :)

Here’s the right side. :)

right-closeup7

I love this simple photo of Luke. :) I just took an older label sticker that I had (once again from WAY back – I think it’s October Afternoon) and stuck it to the photo and folded the little bit extra over the side. Then stapled it and wrote a little something on it. The wooden butterfly embellishment is in the April kit, too!

right-closeup6

Here’s a close up of that for ya to see. ;)

right-closeup4

I really just created my own little filler card for this 4×6 slot. The yellow polka dot paper is from my Confetti 6×6 pad (LOVE me some yellow AND polka dots) and then the felt embellishment is one of four that comes in the OHDEERME embellishment kit this month. Love how sweet and whimsical it is. Such a great embellishment! It would be perfect on a layout or card, too!

right-closeup2

Couple more cards from my kit and a sweet photo of Luke’s Easter egg bucket. He was so proud of himself!

right-closeup1

Lastly, this sweet rhinestone image sticker is in the kit as well. It’s SO much cooler in person! Love it! Such a unique embellishment!

Well, there you have it! Those are my page shares for today! I skipped two pages ahead of what I WAS going to share just because I HAD to use these sweet embellishments in the kit on these pages with the Easter egg hunt photos, etc. I will post the two previous pages next week here on my blog for Project Life Tuesday! I hope you’ll be back then!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to follow me on Instagram! You can find me there by searching: imonehappymama.

Have a blessed day, everyone! XOXO!

Project Life Tuesday

Happy Project Life Tuesday!

Today I am SUPER excited to share some of pages with you guys that have some cards from my Confetti Edition Project Life kit that I designed! To say the whole experience of putting cards that I designed into my album’s page protectors was a bit surreal is an understatement! Just such a cool thing and I’m happy to say that I just LOVE them even more having them in my hands and USING them! Eeeeek!

Ok, so here are a couple of pages that I made using my new Confetti Edition core kit! Yay!!

pl1

I used DESIGN A page protectors and of course my Confetti Edition! Yay!  I also used a 4×6 card from the pack of specialty cards as well! I’ll show you a close up photo of that in a bit! ;)

PL2

Here’s the right side. I was sure to include my Right Now card that lists things that I didn’t want to forget that happened around the time of these photos. Little things my kids say, milestones, etc. Love looking back on those.

PL3

I really love how my little 2×2 photos that I LOVE to use fit perfectly in a lot of my journaling 3×4 cards. :) PL5

Here are a couple more cards from the kit! :) Oh, and there’s Smurple. Smurple is special because he was given to Caylin when she was in the PICU after being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. We finally got him a name tag. ;)

PL6

Ok, now this camera 4×6 card is super cool because the camera is silver foil! Hard to see here, but here’s a close up to see if you can see it a bit more. :) Oh, and yep – I used another of my friend Tracy’s photo templates! I told you I loved those! :-D

PL7

Just LOVE it! There’s a pack of cards that include 4×6 AND 3×4 cards!

PL8

The other week Luke chewed up this book of his. It was bittersweet because I’ve had this book since Caylin was a baby and he totally chewed and tore the cover right off. The neat thing though is that with Project Life, I can add little sweet doo-dads like this that I want to keep. So, I punched a couple of holes in the side and stuck it in my album. Voila! :)

PL9

Here’s a close up shot! I am trying to use up some of my super old scrapbooking supplies and so I took this label sticker from October Afternoon and then stapled it on the book! :)

PL10

Here’s the right side. :)

PL11

This #winning card from my kit cracks me up! Here’s a little sweet tidbit – my husband helped me come up with some of the sayings in my core kit. This wasn’t one of them, but I love how he participated in my design as well. :)

PL12

I love this simple black and white polka dotted 4×6 card in the kit. I love simple and this is just it and so versatile! I put a cute flair button that I got from my friend Finding Nana awhile back!

PL14

PL15

Lastly, here is a little 4×6 card that I love, too. I just adore the color yellow AND this sweet photo Luke took with me. Makes ma happy!

So there you have it! I hope you enjoyed seeing some more cards from my kit! If you’re not following me on Instagram yet – you need to because I’ve posted some quick little videos of cards from the kit as well! You can find a link to my IG account in my sidebar!

Hope you all have a great day! I’ll be sharing how my edition came to be and more from it in the days ahead! Thanks to everyone for your sweet words of support and encouragement through it all! It really has been a dream come true!

XOXO!

Project Life Tuesday

Happy Project Life Tuesday!

Sorry for being MIA last Tuesday. I was dealing with a sore wrist and thumb on my right hand and so I gave myself a break from all things computer. :)

Today I’m sharing the remainder of the pages from Luke’s first year baby album – Project Life style, of course! If you’d like to see previous pages that I’ve shared of Caylin’s, Jack’s and the first part of Luke’s album, you can go HERE to see them all. :)

Just as a bit of a reminder (in case you forgot or haven’t seen the previous blog posts), what I decided to do what for Jack and Luke – take ONE 12×12 Project Life album (it’s from the Seafoam edition) and put BOTH of their first year pages in it. I knew I wasn’t going to fill up the album with just Jack’s pages (since I’m a pretty simple scrapper and hate bulky albums, LOL) and so I put both boys’ first year in this album. It does two things – keeps it all super organized and nice so that I can flip through and see BOTH of their first years at a glance. LOVE THAT! And it also eliminates another album which helps because shelf space is limited, ya know? :)

I did do ONE album for Caylin because well, I did all of her pages BEFORE in the traditional scrapbooking style and so I had a TON more pages, photos and details of her and wanted to include them all. I also had SIX years of her life BEFORE I stumbled upon Project Life and so she actually had two albums that includes her first year + years 2-6. :) She’s the only girl, so I guess she’s special like that, too! ;)

The new thing that I did to this album recently is that I added two Project Life page dividers in the beginning of the album (that says JACK) on it and then one in the middle when Luke’s pages start. :)

luke25

I like the separation it gives the album and I honestly don’t use these in my regular Project Life family albums because I don’t do monthly – I just do consecutively and so it’s great to put these to use every now and then because they are super cute! Oh, and just a little tip – when you use these – be sure to take the plastic film off of the top of them! ;)

Here’s a quick shot of one of his monthly pages. I still need to get the stats for his 11th and 12th month. Shame on me! Ha! ;)

luke23

I took a card and just ran it through my printer and printed this little saying on it that I would say that he loved. I didn’t want to forget it. Little things like that are important to add in our albums, I believe. ;)

luke22

I also used A LOT of my friend Tracy’s digital photo templates throughout his pages. I am SO happy that I discovered these. I really think it’s a great way to add some variety to your pages. She has SO many different sizes and designs. LOVE them! You can reuse them over and over again – super great investment. You can find them HERE.

luke21

You can see that I used ANOTHER photo template on the bottom right of this page. I actually used one on the bottom right, too! Hahaha! Yep, I’m hooked! :-D I even added some stickers to them! Great way to embellish them a bit and still keep it simple!

luke20

luke19

I’m all about simple embellishments and scrapbooking. That’s one of the many reasons why I love Project Life. Throughout his pages you can see that I used my tiny attacher, some flat chipboard pieces and some stickers. I also used flair every now and then, but just kept it simple.

luke18

luke2

luke-1

luke17

Here’s another photo template that I used. Love this series of photos! Hahaha! All three of my kids hated grass from the get-go? Anyone else? He loves it now, but just cracks me up!

luke16

luke15

luke14

Here’s an example of some flair that I used. This one is from Lawn Fawn. I love them. :)

luke13

I finally put that super cute oval flair from Freckled Fawn to use. It was hard to let it go, but fit perfectly here to go with the photo of Luke and Caylin. Love capturing those sibling photos. :)

luke11

This is his first birthday page. I just included some pictures of him and his cupcake. I also talked a bit about how he did NOT like his cupcake (am I sure he’s related to me? LOL) and how he hated his hands messy (just like my other two kids, too)! I also included a little letter to him on his first birthday on the 4×6 journaling card.

luke12

I wanted to include the Elmo helium balloon that he loved too so when it was deflated, I just folded it, punch a couple of holes in it with a hole punch and put it in the album. Simple. :)

luke10

I used a 5×7 Project Life photo sleeve to put in this 5×7 picture of him that I printed at Persnickety Prints. It was his “official” 1-year photo! :-D

luke9

I definitely wanted to include this sweet Elmo drawing. Here’s the story behind it: Caylin told me a few days before Luke’s birthday that SHE wanted to create all of his party decorations. She was so sweet about it that I totally let her and this is one of the drawings that she created and we put on the wall. :) I just slipped it into an 8.5×11 page protector.

luke8

In the back of that above page protector I slipped in some of his birthday cards, a napkin from his party and the glitter “one” from his photo. :)

luke7

Here are some other Elmo decorations that Caylin made that I kept. I wanted him to see just how sweet his sister was and wanted to hold onto these sweet mementos. :)

luke6

luke5

Then on the very last page I just included another collage of his 12-month photos and some random pictures of him that I love. :)

luke4

I also included this little card in the kit just like I did for Jack. :)

luke3

And there you have it! Luke’s first year Project Life style. SUPER simple to do. Just worked on it here and there. Love how easy it came together and flipping through it seriously takes me back and gives me baby fever! Ha!

If you have any questions at all about my process or the album, leave me a comment and I’ll be happy to answer them! Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day! XOXO!
