Right Now Challenge: Week 20

Happy Friday!

Here’s what I was able to remember for this week’s installment of Right Now!

  • Luke could be left-handed and Michael is a bit excited about it. We started to let Lukie eat with a spoon and he’s GREAT at it. He eats some organic applesauce every day at lunch and loves it. I’m secretly hoping he is left-handed. ;)
  • Luke has been going potty on the potty now for about a week and he’s doing great at that, too! It’s crazy! It just came out of nowhere and it’s hard to believe he’s doing it all on his own. He won’t go on the potty EVERY time, but he’s going on it throughout the day and telling me when he has to go or when he’s accidentally just gone in his diaper. He’s a rockstar!
  • Jack said to me the other day when I was going to grab some lunch, “Mama, I just can’t bear it when you are gone. I just miss you too much.”
  • Caylin got her first REAL bike. I’m excited to see her ride it soon.

That’s it for today, friends! Have a great weekend!

XOXO!

Project Life Tuesday

Happy Project Life Tuesday!

Just finished up these pages and so I wanted to get them up on the blog here to share with all of you!

Here they are:

1

For today’s pages I used my go-to DESIGN A page protectors. I also used cards from my Confetti Edition, the Boys Rule mini kit and the Cathy Zielske mini kit.

2

Here’s the first side of the spread. :)

3

Of course the Project Life date stamp was used a lot – as was the Tim Holtz tiny attacher. Do I even have to metnion that anymore? LOL! The star chipboard is from the High Five Edition! SUPER cute!

4

Here’s another closeup! The “happiness” chipboard is also from the High Five Edition as is the blue label chipboard I used on the 3×4 card below.

5

The “selfie fail” card is actually from a Studio Calico Project Life kit.

6

This digital template is from my friend Tracy. You can find her shop HERE. I am using her photo templates ALL of the time and honestly can’t recommend them enough.

7

Here’s the right side. :)

8

Just took a picture of this sweet love note Caylin wrote me and then printed it out 2×2. Put it on a 4×6 card, added a date and a bit of writing and voila! ;)

9

Little camera chipboard is from the High Five Edition, too! SUPER CUTE kit!

10

Lastly, I have to be sure to devote a good amount of this week’s spread to Jack’s front tooth debacle. I was sure to take a BEFORE smile picture and an AFTER smile picture and then a picture of him during the tooth removal and he wanted me to include the little plastic tooth that the dentist put his tooth in. He did NOT want me to keep the tooth or take a picture of it. It grossed him out and freaked him out a bit so this will do. ;) I also used a journaling card to write about what happened.

There you have it! Super simple and SO much fun to do! I’m telling you – I never in a million years would have thought that memory keeping could not only be SIMPLE, but FUN and STRESS FREE. That was my biggest problem – just stressing too much about products and design and placement and the perfect title – I just want to get the memories down. That’s what my kids will want to read and see. THAT is what is important! So glad that I got back to what really matters and why I started scrapbooking in the first place. Try Project Life if you haven’t yet – it’ll change your life and you’ll have SO much fun in the process!

Have a great rest of the day!

XOXO!

May OHDEERME Kit Reveal

Have you seen the May OHDEERME Embellishment Kit from Freckled Fawn? Eeeek! It is FULL of so many super cute goodies! The kit has so many cute embellishments in it that are perfect for all of those road trips you are going to be taking this summer and to document that vacation you’ll have! I’m working on some Project Life pages using the kit and I can’t wait to share them!

Freckled Fawn is always so ahead of the time when it comes to their embellishments. I love seeing so many different types of textures (epoxy, acrylic, cork, paper, wood) and their designs are just always so fun and versatile! The pouch is once again so cute this month and the amount of embellishments that you get each month is always more than enough to use on a number of projects!

Head on over to Freckled Fawn to see some more of the kit and sign up for a subscription! You won’t be disappointed! Happy Saturday, friends!

XOXO!

 

Project Life Tuesday

Happy Project Life Tuesday and Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I hope you all are having a great week! The weather here has been SO amazing! I am loving all of the sunshine! I want to welcome everyone coming on over from the Scrap Gals podcast! If you haven’t heard yet, I was delighted that Tracie and Tiffany (the Scrap Gals) asked me to record a podcast for their awesome podcast called the Scrap Girls. You can find it HERE. I had THE most fun when I chatted with them late late week. We chatted about how I got started scrapbooking, what I’ve been up to, Project Life and I gave a bit of insight on designing a Project Life edition. It was just so much fun and I just love sharing Project Life with people! I totally sound like a major goober here and there, but that’s me and I’m totally OK with that! Hahahaha! Let me know if you listen to it and what you think! ;) Thanks again to Tracie and Tiffany for asking me to be a part of it all! I’m not worthy! LOL! ;)

Ok, now on to my page shares for today!

PL1

Here’s the double-page shot! DESIGN A page protectors, DESIGN I insert and an 8.5×11 page protector.

PL2

Left side. :) I’m using cards from the: Plus One, Hi Sunshine (mini kit), Confetti Edition, Cathy Zielske (mini kit) Kiwi Edition and the Boys Rule mini kit.

PL3

PL9

Of course, like usual, I’m using my Project Life date stamp, Tim Holtz tiny attacher and one of my favorite Sharpie pens. ;)

PL5

I included the DESIGN I insert this week because I had some photos that I thought I’d love to include in the bigger 4×4 size and this insert is one of my most favorites, honestly. I love 4×4 photos, too! Oh, and I got to use some of the 4×4 cards from my Confetti Edition! Yay!

PL6

Then I also included an 8.5×11 page protector where I slipped in this super cute drawing that my son, Jack made for me. He wanted to draw me a monster and so he did and how could I NOT include it? He also gave me a smaller drawing that he wanted me to include so I just adhered it to the back of that one and wrote on a little post-it note his age an the date he made it for me. ;)

PL12

Can we say adorable? Sigh.

PL10

PL11

Here’s the right side. :)

PL8

I used some embellishments from Freckled Fawn and also some older October Afternoon labels. I love those. Like A LOT.

PL7

And there you have it. Those are my page shares for today! Thanks SO much for stopping by, friends! Have a great rest of the day!

XOXO!

Project Life Tuesday

Happy Project Life Tuesday!

Sorry for being MIA last week. If you read my Right Now Challenge on Friday, you’d know why I wasn’t able to have my pages ready. Needless to say, it was quite an ordeal for my little guy and tomorrow morning he gets a tooth extracted. Please pray for him and for this Mama who is not looking forward to it. ;)

Here are my pages for today! I finally got them finished up and ready to share!

1

I used DESIGN A page protectors and cards from the Cathy Zielske mini kit, Jade edition, a Studio Calico Project Life kit and also some from the Hi Sunshine mini it.

3

Of course I pulled out the tiny attacher from Tim Holtz and the Project Life date stamp. I used some old KI Memories stickers I had to add a bit of embellishing to the top right photo and then some washi tape from Freckled Fawn as well.

4

5

The round sticker is from a Freckled Fawn embellishment kit from back in the day. :)

7

Here’s the right side. :) Included the Right Now Challenge card with tidbits that I didn’t want to forget.

10

The “right now” stamp is one that I designed and used to sell in my shop. I wanted to include the hashtag that I use on the photos of my son sleeping on my InstaGram account. I’m obsessed with taking photos of him sleeping. Ha!

8

Photo template by Tracy and confetti by Knot & Bow on Etsy. I just simply stapled a bit to the top of the photo.

9

Then just some simple photos and that geotag heart sticker is an older sticker from Freckled Fawn, too. Love using up some cute supplies that I have on-hand!

Well, there you have it! I hope you are having a great week!

XOXO!
