Project Life 2018 Week 26 | ft. Sahlin Studio Snapshot Photo Templates

Hello Lovelies! Today I am sharing a layout from my 2018 Project Life album for Week 26. This is a hybrid scrapbooking layout using the Sahlin Studio Shine Bright digital kit and Snapshots Photo Templates. You can view the process video here.

Here is a look at my full layout for this week. Our stories included seeing Addison and Emberlynn off to Florida for a few weeks, a fun game of Putt-Putt, and getting nails and toes done.

For the right hand side I have lots of journaling and a few really fun, sunny photos. The bright photos inspired me to use the Shine Bright kit so my colors are turquoise with happy pops of yellow!

I love this photo of Natalie and myself sticking our tongues out and just overall being silly. I have added a few tiny embellishments from Freckled Fawn. Notice how I split the tag and used it to embellish a journal card above.

Addison and Emberlynn visit their relatives in Florida for the summer, so I had to capture one more photo before they left. These photos in front of the front door are so iconic and capture their growth throughout the year!

The right hand side of the layout begins with the date card for the week, which is from the Sahlin Studio Week cards. And yes, there is a second, more silly photo of the kids on the front porch!

The Snapshots photo templates are a great way to tie these two photos together. I added two tiny enamel hearts as well.

I had less journaling on this side, so I have used a few filler cards with just a couple of tiny embellishments added. The word strips below are digital elements in the Shine Bright kit that were printed and cut.

Thank you for joining me today! See you again soon!

Project Life 2013 Week 10B | ft. Studio Calico Golden Hour Documenter Kit

Hello Lovelies! Today I am sharing a layout in my 2013 Project Life album for Week 10B. A few weeks ago I shared the first part of this layout and here is the conclusion. This layout was created using the Studio Calico Golden Hour Documenter Kit. You can view my process video here.

This layout has an insert, and I shared the first half of the layout several weeks ago. This is what that part of the layout looked like.

Here is today’s half of the layout.

I began the layout using the Golden Hour kit, and so it seemed simple to continue the layout using this kit. These colors are beautiful, and even though this kit is designed for more fall-like colors, it goes perfect with our spring day at the zoo.

On the back side of the insert I included this photo of the four kids together, looking out a window. The color of this photo is primarily turquoise, so I have repeated this color throughout the layout. Look how little they are.

Adding an insert means you have a little more flexibility and you can play a bit more, so I created a filler card here. In addition to the hand-written journaling, the text on this journal card also tells some of the story.

When we went to the zoo on this particular day, they had opened up a new area to educate us about bees, and this structure was built to resemble the inside of a beehive! It was so cute! I took color cues once again from the photos and on this side used the pinks and yellows.

I cut out the floral element from the black 4×6 journal card and layered it onto this ombre effect card to create a title card. These colors are just amazing! Thank you for joining me today! See you again soon!

December Daily 2018 | Paislee Press Mini Kit Unboxing

Hello Lovelies! Oh I am so excited to begin diving into this project this year! Today I am sharing an Unboxing video of the Paislee Press Mini kit and a couple of Add-ons I ordered from Ali Edwards. This Mini kit is a favorite every year and I can’t wait to start working with it!

Of course, I am already playing a little bit with these beautiful products and came up with a little mock-up for you. Working in a traveler’s notebook feels a bit different for me as I am used to preparing pocket pages, but just diving in has me excited and I think you’ll love where I am heading too.

I am using a 5×8 size notebook this year, which is very close to Cahier size. I love this size because the pages are just a bit bigger. To create this mock-up I cut down two of the papers from Paislee Press, and one of the transparencies. The transparency is attached to the notebook using simple washi tape and I have left the washi underneath the patterned papers so it only shows on the transparency. 

I also added two little epoxy stickers, back to back, on the edge of the transparency, just to add a tiny detail. And that is all for today! Stay tuned, now that I have products in hand I can begin building my notebooks and will be sharing them with you right here!

Bermuda Honeymoon Album | ft. Paislee Press Aloha!

Hello Lovelies! Today I am hopping back into our Bermuda Honeymoon album for a wonderful layout I created using the Paislee Press Aloha kit. Have a look at the process video here.

For this layout I am still working on photos from our day at the St. David’s Lighthouse, and the Aloha kit make documenting these photos so easy and quick. Here is a look at the full layout.

The Aloha kit has a variety of digital elements that were just incredibly fun to incorporate into my layout. There are journaling cards, digital elements, and traveler’s notebook papers. I was drawn to the greens in the kit so I printed out lots of elements that tied in that color.

Of course I also needed journaling space, and the Aloha kit provides excellent opportunities for that. One of the great stories about this adventure was how much I don’t really love heights, but I climbed all the stairs, popped my head out of the door at the top, and then climbed right back down. Mission accomplished. Ha!

The handwritten patterned paper and the wood grain were both patterned papers that I printed just to use as cards. I resized them a bit so more of the pattern would show on the card, and then layered a few elements on top. The glitter palm fronds are from Crate Paper, the triangle word art from Studio Calico.

This title card was fun to create, I’ve used a neutral patterned background paper and then word art to create visual interest on the card. Wander where the WIFI is weak is from the Aloha kit, Let’s Go from Crate Paper, and triangle Studio Calico again.

The cards in this layout create such movement across the layout and it makes me so happy to see! There were so many beautiful photos from that adventure. Don’t be afraid to include as many photos as you like in your albums. You will be so glad you did!

Thank you for joining me today! If you love the Aloha kit as much as I do, you can grab it at The Lilypad via this link here: Paislee Press Aloha Kit.

Project Life 2013 Week 09 | ft. Sahlin Studio Simplify

Hello Lovelies! Today I have a layout from my 2013 Project Life album to share with you. I created this layout using the Sahlin Studio Simplify digital collection, which is an easy favorite of mine! Have a look at my process video here.

Here is a look at the full layout.

This particular week was all about karate for the boys, who had testing, and the girls, who had a Father/Daughter dance at our church. I pulled the teal, red and black from the kit and repeated those in my embellishments.

I always begin with the date card, because I already know what will go on it. The 3×4 cards in this kit offer lots of opportunities for journaling, so I only added my dates and a word strip to this card.

I had some older heart shaped puffy stickers in my stash, from Seven Paper Company, and I loved using those up here. The transparency floral is from Freckled Fawn.

The girls are so adorable, and they were so excited to go dance with Alan! The word strips are from the Simplify kit.

The second page came together so easily, as they always do when using the Sahlin Studio kits!

Notice how I grouped the karate photos together, and then balanced out the non-karate photos by placing those on the edges of the layout. This is cohesive design that helps bring together seemingly unrelated things.

I still love including everyday moments in this album. Our cooking looks different now as we are in a different home with different stove and we eat different foods now. Love having this documented.

Sometimes when working with years old photos, it can be challenging to remember specifics about the week, so I love pulling out an element in the photo and journaling about how that element makes me feel. In the photo of Nick he is smiling so big and you can see his connection to his karate instructor. He is excited to kick his board and earn his next belt! So my journaling is about precisely how that photo makes me feel.

Thank you so much for joining me today! See you again soon!
