Project Life 2017 Week 44 | A Halloween Layout!!!!

Hello Lovelies, I am so excited to share my Halloween layout from last year with you! I am so very close to finishing this album and only have a few layouts remaining because I finish up in November each year. My layout today is the layout for Halloween, which, if you know me, is a favorite layout every single year! I am using collections from Pebbles: Midnight Haunting; Pink Paislee: Spellcast; and a bit of One Canoe Two Twilight!

Here is a look at the completed layout.

Oh goodness, this layout has my whole heart. Here are the details.

For this week’s layout I chose one story, Halloween. This is an all-time favorite in our house, and this year I am cherishing that everyone still wanted to dress up and go out! It may be the last year they all want to, I don’t take that for granted, and it makes this layout even more special to me!

I wanted to use the Pink Paislee Spellbound collection even though there isn’t much of it still available, and I also added a bit of Pebbles Midnight Haunting to go with it. For my date card I began with that amazing hexagon patterned paper and a banner. The week number was created with Thickers from One Canoe Two.

One challenge when using traditional scrapbook collections is finding places for journaling. I always pull plain white card stock for plain white cards, and add a few lines with stamps. There was a weird cream vibe in these collections, to be sure, but the Spellcast collection also has some white in it, so I have used both in this layout! Gasp!

This year we had a fox, a goddess, a business Narwhal, and a character from Assassin’s Creed. (Our kids do not play that game, but the costume is just that – fun dress-up!) I always love to take their photos in front of the garage on that day. We get dressed a few minutes early so that there is time to take photos and then get on with the fun!

On the left side of the layout my photos were of all four kids together, and on this side I included each person’s photo by themselves. I have always tried, wherever possible, to give each child their moment in the camera lens so they each know how important and cared for they are. It is so much fun every year to embellish their photos!

The spider on Addison’s photo literally did fall out of the package and scared me half to death! Ha! And that is where it landed, so I attached it right there and I love it! I also did another journal card here with plain white card stock and a lined stamp – and I added the circle sticker across the bottom. So very simple and uncomplicated!

I have also added a few of the stars from Pinkfresh Studio The Mix. There were some black ones and orange ones that fit perfectly onto this layout and add the right little touches to my photos. They are awesome!

Creative Team Jenn Hutt | Travelers Notebook Layouts ft. Ordinary Moments!!

Hello lovelies, today Creative Team member Jenn Hutt is on the blog to share  with us! Be sure to check out her About Me page, where you can learn more about her and connect with her on social media!

Hey ya’ll! I hope you’re having a great day!

The first project I worked on with the May collection was for day 48 of the RUKristin 100 Days of All About Me project. The topic is about your pets.

If you remember from last month, I am doing my project in a handmade album that was inspired by Jessica Upton on instagram. The album pages measure 4.5″X8.5″ and use 6 binder rings (to match the hole punch I use).

This prompt was all about pets, and the only pet that I have is a cat named Eleanor.

I used a TN paper from Traci Reed’s XOXO collection as the background (I liked the simple pattern and it was already on my desk) printed on cardstock paper. I also printed and cut out the May elements from the Ordinary Moments kit. I layered two triangle tags at the bottom and stamped 48 on there using some Ali Edwards stamps, for it being the 48th prompt in Kristin’s 100 Prompts

I used a 2″ circle to punch out the picture of my cat (she was standing on the stairs the day of my wedding wondering why there were so many people in her house- we got married in our back yard and the bridal party was getting ready in the house). I layered this image of her on a circle that was cut from the elements page with a green border and pretty red flowers. I put an ‘ordinary moments’ cut out over that.

I used some black glittery American Crafts alpha’s from my stash to spell out her name. I layered two strips of paper behind a premade text box from the cut apart sheet for my journaling and layered that below her name. You guys know me, I like to keep things simple and I am really enjoying this size right now.

The next two projects for the month of May were both single page spreads for my Travelers Notebook insert. They both document an event from Mother’s Day weekend, where a friend of mine got married and the other is a picture with another friend, whom I took out on Mother’s Day.

Once again I resized and printed papers from the kit to fit my size and then printed them out together (this time on regular printer paper since they’re going into a TN insert that is already bound together).

The page on the left documented the adventure a friend and I went on on Mother’s Day. I took her to the GeekCraft Expo in Durham, NC, where we both got a new pair of ears (mine are a galaxy cat pair and hers are a set of fox ears). Afterwards we went to McDonalds for lunch, which is where the picture was snapped. The flower elements, the heart, and the “different is beautiful” piece are all from the “Let Your Heart Decide” collection from Pinkfresh Studios (received in my May Clique Kit subscription). I used a red/orange label that matched perfectly from the Ordinary Moments cut apart sheet.

The project on the right was to document a wedding I attended the day before Mother’s Day. This page is super simple and there isn’t much to it. I used several elements from the same cut apart sheet (two hexagons that were cut off at the edges, the date label, the green label where I wrote a tiny bit of journaling, the today strip (it is on the edge of the photo), and the special days label). Super simple, but I really wanted to document this (it’s the bridesmaids, the flower girl and ring bearer, and the bride being silly. It was originally just supposed to be the bridesmaids but we got photo bombed).

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my projects for this month! Make sure you get your own digital Ordinary Moments kit and share your projects with us!
