Project Life 2015

Project Life Weeks 37 & 38 Featuring Gossamer Blue Kits

Ok wow, I really am not sure where October went! My goal is to bring you a video each month showing my Gossamer Blue kits in a Project Life spread, and today is literally the last day of October so I better get on it for this month! Every month I receive the Main Scrapbooking Kit and the Life Pages Kit and I love them, I love all the fun products they send, and I love the stamp sets that come with both. They always do a fantastic job putting collections together and I can’t tell you how many times I have gotten some of the products in a collection that sold out. You know what I’m talking about – the best product in the most popular collections always sell out so quick, but subscribing to GB will always get you those special items!

So here is this month’s Gossamer Blue process video:

As always, I like to show still photos of the full layout, so you can see how it turned out:

Here is Side A, or Week 37, and notice I did not create a date card for this side. That is ok, I really wanted to highlight the fact that is was our third anniversary!

You will notice I did something different on Week 38, where I used almost a full sheet of patterned paper in those pockets. I absolutely love that paper from My Mind’s Eye My Story collection, and I wanted to use it in a bigger section than just one pocket. So I decided to cut two-thirds of that paper and layer the photos and embellishments over top of it.

I have to admit that I have been missing using some of those larger patterns in my Project Life, and while I was working on this layout I did some thinking about next year’s album. I am about ready to wind down this year’s album, with December Daily coming upon us, and that means a new year and a new memory keeping strategy. So I think I might start doing something similar to what I did here, using the larger patterned papers and layering photos and embellishments over top. I have a little tweaking to do, but I really like that method.

Project Life Week 36 Process Video

Hi there, I’m back today with a video of my Project Life process for Week 36, which was September 5-11, 2015.

 My last video can be seen here; Weeks 35 and 36 are together in my album so they sort of go together. I’ve used the same products: Crate Paper Wonder collection and Ali Edwards journaling cards, washi tape, and Stories stamp set.  I will link to those products at the end of the blog post!

 

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and are inspired to create your own! As always, I like to post some of the photos of the layout here so you can see how it turned out:

 I love this 4 x 6 card layered on top of Crate Paper’s floral pattern. I am making an effort to get some of the larger patterned papers into my Project Life spreads, and this makes me happy!

  This journaling card is one of my favorites, and the main reason why I chose to use the Wonder collection in both of these spreads: Ali has used that apricot color along with red and turquoise and that palette is one of my favorites!

Those turquoise alphabets from Simple Stories worked out great – I love the contrast between them and the gold stripe. Also, the white and orange journaling card was originally a 4×6 size, and I cut it down vertically to fit in this pocket. Don’t be afraid to cut your elements down and try them in a different orientation!

 I hope you have enjoyed this simple, easy Project Life layout today! I’ll be back soon to continue the journey through my Project Life album this year! And because they are so cute, here are more shots of the kittens.
