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:

Project Life 2016 Week 28

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!)

One more look at the right hand side:

That is all for today! See you tomorrow!

Disney Project Life Epcot Princess Dinner | Crate Paper Cute Girl!!!!!

Ok you guys, I have to apologize early on because there might be way too many exclamation points in this post. In working on my Disney album this week the new collection Cute Girl came in from Crate Paper and there was no way I wasn’t using it! So have a look at my process for this layout and then we will chat all about it!

This is the layout with only photos and journaling cards, all from Sahlin Studios Project Mouse. 

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

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

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

Oh my word, you guys. I love the wooden embellishments that came in the Cute Girl collection, and I brought this one up a notch using some vintage tinsel glitter to embellish.

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

I also just had to use this filler card that is in the Cute Girl ephemera pack. I seriously want 25 of these, ok? Oh so pretty. The transparent crown was also in this embellishment pack. How could I not use it on a Princess layout?!

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

Of course it is hard to pick a favorite Princess, and they were all so very awesome, but these photos with Snow White rank as some of my favorites ever. Oh my word.

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

Simple cardstock stickers on this photo, and then I will show you how I journaled about this photo.

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

I do wish I had documented some of the things these lovely ladies said to our girls and to our boys (because they definitely did talk a lot to all of us, only the boys did not get up and run to them for affection!). So I wrote that on my journaling card. If you are planning a trip, or have some of those conversations in your head, write them down and include them!

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

The cardstock stickers in this collection are amazing. I absolutely love using these sheets of stickers in my Project Life albums, so if you are strictly a Project Lifer, I promise you need these in your life and in your albums!

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

The right hand side only keeps getting better, you guys.

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

There is something in this photo that unobtrusively captures the magic and it isn’t even the scene of our children, it is the scene going on behind us. If you look in the background of this photo you can see a baby girl dressed up as Cinderella and she is meeting Snow White. Ya’ll, that mama was so freaking incredibly excited to bring her baby girl to that dinner and have her baby girl’s picture taken with each one of them!!!! The joy coming from that table was absolutely incredible and I have chill bumps on my arm just thinking about how happy they were! Oh trust me, I think I was just as excited and I think I have communicated that in this album, but seeing that reflected all around us is just almost more than a human heart can handle. 

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

I absolutely had to use this fun tag, so I added a twine bow and adhered it down. Notice I have repeatedly used the glitter enamel hearts across the page. I need more of those, you guys! You need those!

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

I think you can tell in this photo, Ariel is most definitely one of the favorites in our house. Oh goodness, so much happiness.

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

I included another filler card here, using some of the puffy stickers. I am absolutely in love with these geometric confetti shapes!!

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

Just a little more journaling here, and a plain card that I embellished using one floral sticker. You can totally make your stickers go further by cutting them not quite in half, and using each piece to balance the card. Try this!

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

Last photo of this layout, and look, there is some of our food! If you watched the video, you probably absolutely saw me add the glitter onto the heart transparency and then discover that I neglected to remove the protective plastic on top! Ha! So I put the original transparency aside and used the film instead. I don’t know if this works or not, but I thought it was a fun way to stretch some of these embellishments a little further.

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

I leave you with one more photo, and a little glimmer of sadness that this is the end of the dinner photos in this album! 

Disney Epcot Princess Dinner Crate Paper Cute Girl

Not to worry, more Disney goodness is up ahead. I have one more Epcot layout plus the map, and then we move into Hollywood Studios. Just a heads’ up that there are only about 6-7 layouts left in this album altogether! I am very close to completion and already beginning to plan what is next for Wednesdays. For now, I will see you tomorrow and TBT!
