Hey everyone! I hope this post finds you well. I am not sure where the month went, but it flew by quickly for me! Thankfully my office is mostly put together and I can start crafting in there… but I definitely miss how big my old office was. Trying to figure out where everything goes in a room that is a third the size of my old one is a nightmare. First world crafting problems.
This month I kept things super simple and I used the pages from the Sweet Chicks Kit to work on my 100 Days of All About Me project. I decided to participate in the 100 Days Project and I am following along with Kristin of RUKristin in her 100 Days All About Me, because she gives you all the prompts and you just fill them in. Each day I document the answer to a prompt that is sent to my email on the Notes app on my phone and I actually craft the pages together when I have the time and motivation.
Theresa’s collections are great for this kind of project. They coordinate well together (obviously) and there is a lot of white space that is good for journaling. I just made adjustments to the cards to fit the size I need and then bam. Project done, easy peasy.
I got the idea of a mini album that is the size of a Travelers Notebook but on rings from Jessica Upton and absolutely love the idea! I love TN’s but after a while they get a little hard to work with the fuller they become, and they have a limited number of pages. I saw Jessica’s idea on Instagram and fell in love. So I created my own album.
I started off with two cards from the kit that I really liked and resized them to 4.5″x8.5″, which is slightly bigger than a TN. I picked cards that had a little bit of color, either at the top or bottom, and lots of white space for me to write on. I printed them out on my printer at home in a landscape format and cut them out with my paper trimmer. Then I decided which prompts I would put them with.
I decided to start with the first prompt, which was “What is your name”. I stamped out the title with some new alpha stamps from Ali Edwards’ Type story kit at the top. I took a banner and put it sideways, stamping the numbers from another Ali Edwards stamp set called The Time (this one is from this year’s OLW selection) and attaching that. I used some black alpha thickers from my stash to spell out my name. At the bottom I used some of the labels from the cut apart sheet at the bottom to add more color and called this one good.
The thing I love about this project is that I can combine my love of scrapbooking with my love of detailed journaling. My layouts are simple and focus more on the journaling, which is what I want. Sometimes I will include photos and sometimes I won’t. I can’t wait to see how this album turns out. I plan on using parts of the kits throughout the rest of the 100 days.
The next page I completed is probably prompt number 3 (I haven’t figured out where to put the number yet). This prompt was all about my hobbies… and there is a long list of those hobbies. Haha. I am the kind of person that can’t focus on one type of project for too long or else I get burnt out and lose motivation. So I have a lot of ongoing projects and a running list of things I want to do a mile wide.
I took another journaling card from this kit and resized it to the same dimensions as the first page. I used the same alpha stamp set for the title and just wrote out my list of hobbies. This one was super simple and easy to complete. I like how bright and colorful my pages are thanks to Theresa’s kit and she makes them see say to use and resize!
Did you know that there are photo templates that you might be interested in! Make sure you go check out her shop and see what creative goodies she created.
