Project Life 2017 Week 21 | ft. Amy Tangerine Hustle & Heart!!!

Hi guys! Today I am sharing my process video for my 2017 Project Life layout Week 21. The digital layout was created in Photoshop using the Memory Pockets Monthly May kit called Fling, available at the link below. I then embellished the layout in this video, using Amy Tangerine’s brand new collection called Hustle & Heart!

Our stories this week included my happy blooms on the front porch, Addison’s awards ceremony as he graduates from middle school, and the girls having some fun with paint and fiber!

Always the best place to start – the date card. Mine is almost always at the top left hand corner, so let’s take a look!

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 21 | ft. Amy Tangerine Hustle %26 Heart!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 21 | ft. Amy Tangerine Hustle %26 Heart!!!

I used one of the add-on papers from Allison Pennington as the base for this card, and then added the hexagons from the May Fling kit prior to printing. Then I added my week number using the Amy Tangerine alphabet and I also added a few stamps. Very uncomplicated.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 21 | ft. Amy Tangerine Hustle %26 Heart!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 21 | ft. Amy Tangerine Hustle %26 Heart!!!

I love this photo of our rich purple blooms on the porch, so I enlarged the photo for the layout here. The photo had this fantastic white space from the corner of the house, so I layered some embellishments there. Stamps first, then the die cut, and then gold glitter. That is a great formula for an embellishment cluster!

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 21 | ft. Amy Tangerine Hustle %26 Heart!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 21 | ft. Amy Tangerine Hustle %26 Heart!!!

I am continuing to include typed journaling and hand-written journaling on my pages, and love the added words on my pages. This was an important week for us, I felt like, as some days the whole blended family thing leaves us feeling unsure, not good enough, or any other number of hard emotions! But then there are days like this, where our kids succeed and we as parents take ownership of their successes too! We helped them achieve the success in their lives and so I am incredibly proud of all of us. This is definitely a great way to document and celebrate that and I am so glad for Project Life!

I love using a wood grain as a back drop for another filler card. For this one I gathered the ephemera from Hustle & Heart to bring in all the colors – yellow, navy, and pink. All my favorites, ya’ll!

Ok, so I know everyone always wants to know what is the must-have product, when American Crafts releases new collections? I will be the first to insist that you run, don’t walk, to grab the brand new enamel pin stickers!!! I could not wait to open them and used this Lucky one right away. 

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 21 | ft. Amy Tangerine Hustle %26 Heart!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 21 | ft. Amy Tangerine Hustle %26 Heart!!!

In other flower news, our hydrangea bloomed and we are surprised and excited about that too! We had a really late freeze last spring and the hydrangea and the gardenia were not very happy about it. But they have proven to be resilient! I don’t know how we have managed to keep our flowers so happy in our little yard, but they are doing great and I love including them in my layouts.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 21 | ft. Amy Tangerine Hustle %26 Heart!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 21 | ft. Amy Tangerine Hustle %26 Heart!!!

Did you notice my tiny blooper on my printed layout? When I created the layout, there was a text block on this floral card and I forgot to either remove it or add text, so just random text was printed there! No worries, I added this die cut over top with a puffy heart and no one ever knows.

One more simple calendar card, which I have highlighted using a regular old office staple, my trusty highlighter!

Bermuda Layout No. 05 | On An Adventure!

Hi guys, today I am sharing the next layout in my Bermuda honeymoon album with you! Products I am using are a combination of Amy Tangerine plus Crate Paper Oasis!

Here is the full layout. I still had more photos from around the hotel I wanted to include in this album, so those are my jumping off point for the layout.

Larkindesign Bermuda Layout No. 05 | On An AdventureLarkindesign Bermuda Layout No. 05 | On An Adventure

The left hand side is a divided pocket page made of 3×3 squares that were begging for another full size photo. This amazing gazebo was built over the water on the hotel property and was simply magical! The only embellishment I added were the transparency card from Dear Lizzy Saturday and the gold hearts from Pink Paislee Take Me Away.

Larkindesign Bermuda Layout No. 05 | On An AdventureLarkindesign Bermuda Layout No. 05 | On An Adventure

The pinks and corals from the photos are what drove my decisions for selecting the journal cards, and all of Amy Tangerine’s collections use those colors so beautifully! I added just a few embellishments from Crate Paper Oasis as well, and they coordinate perfectly!

Larkindesign Bermuda Layout No. 05 | On An AdventureLarkindesign Bermuda Layout No. 05 | On An Adventure

My journaling focuses on how excited we were to get away by ourselves for a few days. It doesn’t happen often, with four kiddos and my parents being gone and his parents being far away. So this was incredibly special to us!

Larkindesign Bermuda Layout No. 05 | On An AdventureLarkindesign Bermuda Layout No. 05 | On An Adventure

The only card that is not from Amy Tangerine is the middle striped card, which is Dear Lizzy. It ties in all the colors of the layout and provides easy journaling lines, so it’s a win-win!

Project Life 2016 Week 25 | Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life!!!!

Hi guys!!!! I am so excited about today’s layout and cannot wait to show you!!!! Have a look at my process video:

Alright, so I began my layout in the Project Life App, printed through Persnickety Prints, using the Project 52 cards available in the App itself.

Project Life 2016 Week 25

I was so excited to start getting some of Amy Tangerine’s newest collection in my mail! This one is called Oh Happy Life! and I felt like it matched perfectly with the Project 52 colors!

Project Life 2016 Week 25

In my process video I began with these watercolor resist cards. I simply added Tim Holtz Distress paints in random ways to the cards and let the resist do its magic! The colors I used are Wild Honey, Abandoned Coral, Twisted Citron, and Mermaid Lagoon.

Project Life 2016 Week 25

I added the floral clear sticker from the Oh Happy Life! collection, cut in half, around the card for layering. Oh my goodness, I just love it.

Project Life 2016 Week 25

We had the cutest visitor in our back yard, so I very gingerly snapped a few unobtrusive photos and we watched him wander away into the ravine behind our house. I combined journaling here with the turtle story on the top half and the photos below are journaled on the lower half. The sunglasses are adorable here to signify the separation!

Project Life 2016 Week 25

Two of ours were away in Florida with their grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins this week, and these photos were sent back to us. They look like they are doing excellent! (Photo courtesy of Uncle Jeff Brown!)

Project Life 2016 Week 25

My flower pots are growing and filling beautifully this week. Next to that photo I used another of the watercolor resist cards layered on top of the Project 52 filler card. And then I also layered a clear sticker and the -week portion of the foam sticker that also comes from Oh Happy Life! 

Project Life 2016 Week 25

I absolutely love these completely ordinary moments, and I promise you our life is exactly this uneventful. My sweet husband is here changing the sheets on the bed, and you can see that Zoe is clearly helping him by making sure the heated blanket is nearby and occupied. I also absolutely love that Project Life gives me this awesome place to not only take this photo, but to give it a little context. I didn’t need to write any journaling about this photo, but I still included it because this album is just the right place to include ordinary, every day moments just like this. 

Project Life 2016 Week 25

On the left hand side of this layout the date card takes the first spot. Clear stickers and washi tape from Oh Happy Life! make fun embellishments to this card.

Project Life 2016 Week 25

Underneath is another of the watercolor resist cards, again layered on top of a Project 52 filler card. I love this simple layering of watercolor on top of graphic.

Project Life 2016 Week 25

We took Natalie in this week for a check-up on her arm and she was at this point healing up great. I added the foam stickers and added just a tiny stamp to each one.

Project Life 2016 Week 25

I even used the marketing strip from one of the patterned paper, along with some of the clear heart stickers. This photo is Zoe yet again, this time she caught me napping and climbed up into my neck to get comfy.

Project Life 2016 Week 25

I am absolutely digging the clear stickers in this collection. Here I cut the word strips just to add a little something to this card. I also used another of the foam stickers to accent here. Note the repetition around the page: foam stickers, watercolor cards, and clear stickers appear in several places to create a unified look.

Project Life 2016 Week 25

Our house in the dark. We water our yard almost every night unless it rains, and sometimes that happens after everyone has gone to bed. It’s comforting to me, to see the house lit up and inviting us inside.

Project Life 2016 Week 25

Another look at this side here:

Project Life 2016 Week 25

Well, I hope you have been inspired to use this new collection! I have been able to find pieces of it at A Cherry on Top, Scrapbook.com, and Paper Issues recently. I will see you back here tomorrow with my Disney series!

Project Life 2016 Week 22 | Amy Tangerine Better Together!!

Hi guys! Welcome back to my 2016 Project Life album where I am continuing with Week 22. The layout is printed from the Project Life App and then embellished on top using Amy Tangerine Better Together! Here is my process:

There were three pages to this layout, and I did not get photos of them together before I embellished. However, here are the layouts as they were completed!

Project Life 2016 Week 22
Project Life 2016 Week 22

When I created the layout in the App, I chose the Memories in the Making kit within the App. The colors in that collection blend perfectly well with Amy Tangerine’s Better Together collection. The date card is located in the Project 52 2016 collection, and I added the floral transparency piece.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

This side of the layout is about my daughter fracturing her arm. On Sunday of that week we had just mopped the kitchen floor and she ran across it. She fell and landed hard on her elbow, which caused her femur to fracture right beneath her shoulder. So we carried her to the ER to get her bandaged up.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

I have you tell you that being in the ER twice this year with two children has been the most challenging and heart-breaking things in my life. I am incredibly thankful that they are ok and they absolutely handled their traumas with incredible strength.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

This girl went into the ER and waited patiently the whole four hours. She refused any and all pain medications, both that night and the days after. She was a little bit worked up, poor thing, so eating was hard for her. We tried to give her all her favorite things, just to keep her hydrated and healthy.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

This photo is from the following day, when we had her fitted for her cast. The ortho decided she only needed a temporary cast that was removable, and it was mainly to prevent re-injury. She was allowed to remove it to sleep, but she felt more comfortable leaving it on so she did.

Project Life 2016 Week 22v

I love Project Life for this reason alone, because if I did not do Project Life I might not have thought to take a picture of her cast and sling. I placed my wooden ruler next to it so we could remember how small it was.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

On Monday of that week we celebrated Memorial Day, quietly at home in our own backyard. I used the remote for the camera and took a few snaps.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

I created a title card for this page and used the Amy Tangerine alphabet, and then I added a few paper strips and the rubber flower as embellishment.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

I love this die cut circle from the collection and I especially love just adding a tiny circle embellishment at the top of a photo. You have probably seen me do this in the 2014 album too!

Project Life 2016 Week 22

These journaling cards make me so happy. They are so simple, and I left the embellishing simple as well.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

Interestingly enough, this photo was not taken on this day, and I’m not sure why I included it here. But nevertheless, I really love this photo and am laughing at my scattered self for misplacing it. This was a few days prior, when we came home from the pool! I was trying to set up my phone camera for some self-timed photos and it accidentally took that one. I love that my hair is hanging over the top edge and I love the look on my husband’s face as he tries to help me.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

Sometimes when I have the camera set up outside with the tripod, I ask my husband to grab a few shots with me too. I love that he is willing to step into the frame and I love that our relationship is captured in these frames too. These moments are so important to me.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

Simple journaling about the photo, and an added embellishment directly on top of the polka dot card. Love.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

For the third page of this layout, I am documenting Nick’s birthday. He just wanted to do laser tag and have cake this year. Simple request!

Project Life 2016 Week 22

I have another title card here embellished with just washi tape and the xo puffy stickers. I also used some of the puffy stickers to addjust a little something to the photos. So fun!

Project Life 2016 Week 22

I always love using washi tape to create lines for journaling, and the two printed tapes are perfect here. I alternated them just for fun, and then added my journaling.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

For this photo I only added a rubber banner. Note Natalie’s sling here – she really did not want her picture taken where the sling could be seen, but I did sneak this one photo of her back.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

And yes, there are absolutely two photos of us kissing in this layout! I hope you will humor us – we each have some difficult stories and have each been through some hardships in our life. In each other we have found so much joy and affection – joy and affection we did not receive from others who were in our life previously. For this I am so incredibly thankful, and I would not trade it for the world.

Project Life 2016 Week 22

I  hope you are able to capture some of the special moments in your family’s life today and every day! See you back here tomorrow for Disney!

TBT Project Life 2014 Week 22 Part B | Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste!!

Hi guys! Today is TBT and that means another 2014 Project Life layout, where I am currently documenting our house construction project! Today I am in Week 22, the second part, and I decided to use my Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste collection. Here is my process video:

Oh I am always so happy using my Amy Tangerine products. The colors are so bright and happy and the layouts always turn out the same. Here is the layout with only photos and journaling cards:

Project Life 2014 Week 22B

And here is the completed layout, with journaling and embellishments:

Project Life 2014 Week 22B

Since this is the second layout for Week 22, I did not need a date card. So I created this adorable filler card.

Project Life 2014 Week 22B

I made sure to include my circle date from Paislee Press so the date on this photo was easy to identify. I have been using these throughout this project for consistency and love them.

Project Life 2014 Week 22B

The center pockets are all Project Life cards from the Cut & Paste mini kit. I used the stamp set from the Finders Keepers collection, and the enamel dots are from October Afternoon.

Project Life 2014 Week 22B

The drywall in the house is now completely hung, and they are preparing to do the seams and spackle. I love this real life photo of the product waiting. This is the spackle. This is how much it will take to seal in these lovely walls and to make the drywall smooth and beautiful. I love this.

Project Life 2014 Week 22B

The windows also passed inspection so I documented those stamps of approval. I love these small details – don’t be afraid to capture those, to remember those moments and what it means. I also love how the street looking out that window was so different from now (it is all filled up with homes!). This is how it was, maybe it was only this way for a few days, because time marches on. Capture it! Get that shot!

Project Life 2014 Week 22B

Two more journaling cards on this side, with just a few notes about what is going on.

Project Life 2014 Week 22B

The right hand side of the layout is about our school’s Spring Fling. Yep, even while our house is being built, life is moving forward. This was a yearly tradition for us for quite a few years – the elementary school in our previous county held an annual Spring Fling and it was always a favorite event. You might recall when I was gathering the photos and preparing to tackle this project, I came upon these photos and decided to reprint them because they are awful yellow. So I did reprint them and adjusted them a bit in Photoshop. They still are not perfect, by any means, as you can see! But they are included anyway. Keep the imperfect ones. This was too important to leave out.

Project Life 2014 Week 22B

I started off with this photo of them all gathered around a table playing a game. The fact that they, for one moment, were all around the same table at the same time is miraculous enough (!) and it tells such a story here. Again, such a fleeting moment, they all look different now!

Project Life 2014 Week 22B

These two. They are best friends. They miss each other when they are apart. When we were deciding on floor plans for the house, they insisted on keeping a room together. Sometimes they fight the worst, and sometimes they ignore each other altogether (!) but at the end of the day, this is them. I want you guys to know that both of them carry silent grief. Both of them have experienced loss and sadness – each one unique and neither one greater than the other. But this. Out of loss and tragedy and pain comes this.

Project Life 2014 Week 22B

The pockets across the center are again Project Life cards with simple embellishments. The wood grain card here just had to be used up. I layered the circle die cut and a star enamel dot on top.

And then there are these two. You can tell which of the children grew up being photographed, and therefore when the camera is out she will pose. I love both, and I love that this photo captures both.

I created a simple title card here. This event definitely was on their Love List and that banner is perfect. Alphabet is from Amy’s Stitched collection.

Last two filler cards here. Simple stamping and a washi tape from Paper Source that is laying on my desk.

Project Life 2016 Week 14 | Amy Tangerine Finders Keepers

Hi guys, today’s layout is from my 2016 Project Life album for Week 14. This layout was created in the Project Life App using the Kiwi Edition card kit, which I love! I love all the colors and the bright, crisp designs. It was the perfect match to Amy Tangerine’s Finders Keepers collection. Check out the process video:

This is how the layout looked after creating it and printing it at home, on my Epson Workforce large format printer:

And the completed layout here:

Project Life 2016 Week 14

In the process video I worked around the page a little randomly – I am always slightly envious of scrapbookers who work their way one space at a time, or one card at a time, systematically. I am much more random and tend to work according to what inspired me at the moment. Either way works, right? Whichever way helps you get things done is good. So my date card is in the upper right hand corner, embellished with just a few items.

Underneath is a quick snap of my son when we were at Skate Night. I am still taking a few photos here and there to continue documenting his healing face – he is still doing great!

Project Life 2016 Week 14

Most of this layout has to do with our yard work and being outdoors now that spring is beginning to show up! We redid our flower beds this week which meant cleaning them out and adding new straw, in order to prepare for planting in a few weeks.

Project Life 2016 Week 14

Across the page I wrote about meeting up with a friend. I did not take any photos of us (I’m not sure what I was thinking!) but I did find these cacti at the park we met at and found them to be somewhat random, but fascinating to find in the middle of nowhere! I love how Amy Tangerine’s products add just the best embellishments – fun and hip, not overdone at all, and more happy colors. Love, love, love.

Project Life 2016 Week 14

Our cat had a field day with the new pine straw, so that became one of the stories I told in my journaling for this week. I know many people like to actually document something for each day in their Project Life, and I always love to see those layouts! For me, however, I can barely keep up with the weeks so my layouts are more random, although hopefully still somewhat cohesive, stories that happen throughout the week, in no particular order. I like to use these layouts to give a general, overall sense of the week, and not feel like I am diary-ing each day (there, I made up a new word today)! This is the beauty of this project: make it work for you because there is no right or wrong.

Also, can you tell a difference in the print quality between these two pages? My best friend, my Epson printer, DIED (!!!!!!) this week right in the middle of printing this layout. My sweet husband worked on it so hard, trying to clean the print heads and troubleshoot and alas, Epson said no good, we are sending you a brand new one!!!!!!!! And they did! You can see my big beast of a printer in this photo below – that is the old one and now there is a brand new one there in its place at absolutely no charge to us. My printer was just two weeks past a year old and I was quite surprised that it died (the print heads are located on the inside of the printer itself and to replace was more than the price of the printer) but even more pleasantly surprised at Epson for replacing it. Thank you, Epson. You have one loyal, happy customer here.

Project Life 2016 Week 14

So yeah, that sums up this week in Project Life-land. I’ll be back tomorrow with my Disney project!
