Project Life 2016 Week 32 | Crate Paper Cute Girl!!!!

Hi guys! I am working on my Week 32 today in my Project Life album. I created the layout in the Project Life App using the Currently edition kit, and then embellished on top using my Crate Paper Cute Girl. Have a look!

 

Here is the layout as a completed whole:

In our family August is a month of birthdays, so you will be seeing a few birthday layouts in the upcoming weeks! How fun! This week was Natalie’s birthday, and Cute Girl fit perfectly for that theme.

More of the usual suspects: my Becky Higgins Project Life roller stamp to create journaling lines, and my Ali Edwards Story stamp set to add some graphics.

Natalie wanted to have dinner at McDonald’s so we met up with friends and family to celebrate. I love that she is low-key, thrilled just that we are all together.

For the last few years she has asked for a cookie cake, and this year was no different. Here she is drooling happily over it after we had just brought it home. This was her 9th birthday, so the die cut 9 from Cute Girl was perfect.

Natalie is quite a gamer, and her favorite game is Splatoon. She is at expert level in the game itself, and is known for talking smack to the “newbies” she runs into! She wanted Squid Kid on her cake, because that is what she considers herself.

Dad of the year award goes to Alan for finding this Splatoon shirt for her for her birthday! She may be a little young for Hot Topic, but it sure did make her day to open that shirt in one of her presents, and she had to put it on immediately!

One more look at this side:

For the right hand side I just had to use this camera! The Cute Girl collection is actually pretty trendy, girly, and even though it is designed for girl layouts I had a ton of fun using it for an every week kind of layout. I could use about 150 of those puffy stars!

This was my printer and Silhouette station in my studio, and that is Zoe obsessed with the Silhouette. She is hilarious, she loves the sounds that machines make and will come running when you are getting ice or printing of cutting things!

This photo cracks me up. We were just hanging out at the pool being silly.

This card is an embellisher’s dream. Three adorable little frames that needed to be filled up. I used a rubber heart, a puffy butterfly, and a chipboard house. Be sure to mix up your fun embellishments like that!

Look, it’s a picture of me! Do I look awful, with me sunscreen skin and waterlogged hair? Yes. Does it matter? No. Props to my husband for taking it and allowing me to see what he sees. This is his view, and who he loves, and that smile appears whenever he is in front of me. That is a treasure, friends.

One last photo, again of Zoe. Alan was sick a couple of days, and she came running when there was a blanket. She is the perfect sleeping companion.

Project Life 2016 Week 28 | Crate Paper Cute Girl!!

Hi guys! Today I am working in my 2016 Project Life album for week 28. I created the layout in the Project Life App using the Currently Edition kit and printed it through Persnickety Prints. I then embellished on top using Crate Paper Cute Girl. Have a look at my process!

Here is a look at the layout as it was created in the Project Life App:

Project Life 2016 Week 28

And here is the full layout complete with journaling and embellishments:

Project Life 2016 Week 28

I decided purposely on this layout to not include a date card from the App, but I chose this card from the Currently kit because it had a great space for stamping the date and week. Alphabet stamp set is from Kerri Bradford, the Ashland set, and the date stamp is from Heidi Swapp.

Project Life 2016 Week 28

Above this card I added a photo of my daughter at her dentist’s office that week. I also have photos of our lily that bloomed this week!

Project Life 2016 Week 28

This card is a simple filler card, so I added a few embellishments for fun.

Project Life 2016 Week 28

I am absolutely in love with the geometric confetti puffy stickers in the Cute Girl collection. I just want sheets and sheets of them, please?!

Project Life 2016 Week 28

Our lilies finally bloomed this week and we were sooo excited! This is the second year I have had them and last year when I planted them, they were already blooming. I had no idea it took so long for them to pop! And they were prolific this year, too! So much prettiness by our mail box.

Project Life 2016 Week 28

Another look at the left side of the layout:

For the right hand side I began with this adorable filler card. I was decidedly more generous with embellishments on this side, and I love that.

Project Life 2016 Week 28

Underneath are two more journaling cards, but I only used one for journaling. The transparent Hey Girl element is perfect layered over the citron stripes, and puffy stickers embellish the grey polka dots beautifully.

Project Life 2016 Week 28

This photo is of Natalie’s Splatoon Amiibo characters that she saved up her own money to buy. She is a die-hard Splatoon expert and plays almost every day, lining up her characters just like this!

Project Life 2016 Week 28v

Another filler card here, with layered die cuts and the adorable pink cat puffy sticker from Cute Girl. Simple, but oh so cute!

Project Life 2016 Week 28

Sometimes you need to include cute cat photos in your Project Life, and Zoe provides lots of those cute moments for us! This particular night she came and sat on Alan’s tablet, she sat on his hand, she laid on his shoulder, and then she settled right here. I absolutely love that Crate Paper includes cat motifs in some of their collections (the last one was Wonder!)

That is all for today! See you tomorrow!

P52/Project Life 2016 Week 10 | Currently Edition and Maggie Holmes Bloom!

Hi guys, I have a quick one-page layout this week for you that I created using the Currently Edition digital version in the Project Life App. Later on Friday I will bring another Project Life video, and for the next few weeks my plan is to bring more than one Project Life layout. I started planning my layouts for the month of March and realized that there was quite a bit to document! I love the flexibility of this method for Project Life – when slow weeks happen one page is fantastic, and when busy weeks happen I have the ability to include more stories. So let me show you the process video:

 

This is the layout as I created it in the Project Life App:

Project Life 2016 Week 10

So the Currently Edition is not available in the Project Life App at this time, but the digital version is available at beckyhiggins.com. I also received notification that the physical kit had been restocked, if you are interested in that one. I was delighted to get the digital kit, however, and then once I downloaded the cards I placed them in my Dropbox to use in the App. 

Project Life 2016 Week 10

I decided to use Maggie Holmes Bloom collection to add my embellishments. The colors blend really well with the layout and I love the flexibility between the pinks and blues.

Project Life 2016 Week 10

The circle journal card became the perfect home for the week number, and then a Maggie Holmes label anchors the card on the page. I have been really anxious (yes, in a hoarding sense) to use those fringe hearts and had to convince myself to just use one already. They are so pretty!

Project Life 2016 Week 10

One of my commitments to myself this year is to take pictures of myself and include them in my Project Life album. I don’t really see myself as “pretty,” necessarily, but I do love to wear make-up and I do love to use fun filters to make the pictures look pretty. I think one of the reasons we don’t like pictures of ourselves is because cameras can be harsh on our faces and can show imperfections! No wonder we don’t like those images! But filters and different angles can be flattering and can help us feel better about ourselves and the way we look. So I am doing that for myself this year. 

Project Life 2016 Week 10

Our cat had to go to the vet, and as soon as we placed him in the carrier, the other cat jumped on top as if to wonder where we were taking her brother! The journaling went perfect on the Maggie Holmes sticker turned sideways.

Project Life 2016 Week 10

I’m not much of a list-type journaler, but this card seemed perfect for a week that seemed to have one thing going on each day. So a simple list it is. With a cute little bird. And with that, this layout is done. See you soon!
