Project Life 2018: Week 34

Week 34 was a difficult week of transition and changes. My daughter started going to school and we had to adjust to a different schedule, different people, and different places. Everything was eventually fine, but that first week was TOUGH!

Studio Calico October Stamp Set: Special Delivery

Stamps are some of my favorite things to play with so when Studio Calico asked if I wanted to try out the October stamp set, Special Delivery, I said yes of course! The stamps in this month's set, designed by Christine Herrin are super fun and versatile.

Project Life 2018: A long weekend in Seattle

In early May of this year, we took a short trip to Seattle to see some friends and play tourist. Although this trip will probably be documented more fully in a mini-album of some kind, I wanted to add a couple of inserts to my Project Life album as a summary.

I created one 9x12" spread for each day of the trip, so I ended up with 4 extra pages (2 total inserts) to add to my album.

Project Life 2018: Week 26

As the days start to get shorter and Summer slowly fades away, I'm happy to hold on a little longer by documenting the memories created during the season. I loved making this bright spread with both kits from Kelly Purkey and Feed Your Craft.

Studio Calico: July Guest Designer

Studio Calico asked me to be a guest designer for their Documenter Kit this month. It was fun to work with the July "Great Escape" documenter kit, which had a lot of nice embellishments and bright, summery colors.

I made three 12x12 pocket page spreads just using the kit, which I talked about on their blog here.

Project Life 2018: Week 25

One of the (many) reasons I like working with digital supplies is the ability to re-color and customize the elements. I often do this to perfectly match other shades found in photos or already-printed, physical cards.

For Week 25 in my pocket page album, I did exactly this.

Everyday Explorers Projects: June

I made a couple of pages using the June release of stamps at Everyday Explorers Co. The Choose Your Own Adventure stamp set is SO good! I'm pretty sure I will be using all of these little postage stamps eventually!

We recently spent a long weekend in Seattle and I will probably do a mini-album of this trip at some point. But since mini-albums take me a long time, and I'm a little particular about not leaving anything out from my Project Life albums, I decided to add a few inserts with some photos from the trip to my album. This page documents a day where we drove North from Seattle to explore some other towns (Mt. Vernon and Bellingham) and then drove South to stop at Deception Pass State Park for some nice hiking. It was a spectacular day.
