Hiya sistahs! So did I convince you to start Project Life yet? I am having a blast with it.. so along with stamping, mixed meda’ing, art journaling and lifebooking.. I have taken on this project. I am IN LOVE. I am appreciating every moment and capturing the most inane ones too .LOL. I am also learning to accept the fact that I look HORRIBLE in the pictures..LOL.. but I am ok with that. I need to be in this album. I need to create this memory for my kids and their kids. I NEED them to see that I was boring at times and fun at other times.. sometimes I may shove in a receipt so that they know where their inheritance went..LOL. I was SOOOO overwhelmed in the beginning of this project.. just the ideas the what ifs etc.. but once I sat down and was surrounded by pictures and product, I was so happy and everything fell into place. My book doesn’t need to look like anyone elses. If I don’t want to embellish, I wont.. the most important thing I need to do is JOURNAL and take some pics.. THAT’s it. My Iphone 4S is my new best friend (the camera).. some pictures arent PHENOM, but I am ok with that. The mood is captured. Sometimes it may even be a BAD mood..LOL. My kids and hubby are also involved in this.. I sometimes hear “shouldn’t you take a picture of that?”, or “how good would that look in PROJECT LIFE? Denabella and Helenabella were talking about it all year and I must admit I was JEALOUS. Jealous that they had so much to talk about..but now I can partake in it! They are teaching me new things every day.. I am learning about a whole new product line.. I am creating FOR this product line.. and I am using what I have in creative ways. I will teach you how to do that too. I hope you take this journey with me.. your kids will THANK da bella oh and you too!
I would love it if you sent in your layouts to post on Tuesdays…. I look at other people’s layouts and I just get inspired.. you will hear me say.. OOOHHH look what they stamped, stuck, glued, colored,pinned etc. This will be a great place for that inspiration. And because I love getting to know people, I would love to see a little piece of you
If you are ever looking for me on a Sunday afternoon… you can find me at my table, in heaven…
One of my challenges every week is to be able to find a place for my stamps.. they are so much a part of me, that they DESERVE a place in Project Life, no? It taught me a whole NEW way of looking at stampies.. it’s amazing! I challenge YOU to use stamps in your layout.. you will see different elements that you have never seen before.. or different uses for them… I PROMISE.
Ok let’s go!
Here is my layout from last week
My first page.. you will see on the top right, I used our stamp JOT IT DOWN memory block and P.S. my kids ARE goofs..LOL
In this close up, I wanted to fill up some of my card with prettyness so I used my FLUFFY FLOWER HEAD on the right..Love that touch
Here is a small teeny picture of the store in the middle of a class. I actually punched out the circle (you will see on bottom left picture) and found the negative on my table and used it here..SEE? you use your scraps! I then used one of the prompts from our new LIFEBOOK stamp series (that is Angela’s handwriting in a stamp.. )… you will see that in the next month.. these stamps will FORCE you to journal..:) I also think it is important to use your handwriting in PL.. it is YOUR imprint.. Stay Tooned for our new Lifebook stamps by Angela Urbano and moi…
Here is my SECOND layout (I had 3 for this week). I used a large shipping tag on the top left.. I also grab a 6*6 paper collection pad and that is what I use for my layouts that week and coordinate
I stamped COMPLETELY RANDOM journaling block on paper, cut it out and mounted it on a journaling card.. as Jayden would say “easy peasy LEMON SQUEEZY”.. so you can use it partially, or full on . Love this stamp
Here is a picture of Tyler on Saturday on his way home from hockey..LOL. I also used COMPLETELY RANDOM JOURNALING BLOCK I stamped it on paper and cut out the top to stick it under the picture. You will see this stamp in another place too… please hold. LOL
Here’s my third layout.. (bored yet?)
Used a new app called INSTABOOTH for photobooth pics.. We had so much fun but looked SOOO bad..LOL
Here is Denabella’s spread
and here is Sheryl’s layout
Tell me this isn’t fun..LOL. Ok so don’t tell me unless you do think it’s fun..LOL
