Dear Lizzy Happy Place

TBT Project Life 2014 Week 32

Hi guys! For my TBT I am continuing along in my 2014 Project Life album, Week 32. The construction project is now completed and we are swimming right back into normal life. Have a look at my process video:

Here is the layout with photos and journaling cards:

And this is the layout completed with journaling and embellishments:

Larkindesign Theresa Moxley | TBT Project Life 2014 Week 32

This layout is about my daughter Natalie’s birthday, which happened at Chuck-E-Cheese. So bright colors, busy photos, lots to see here! I chose bright colors and bold patterns in the Sahlin Studio Celebrate Add-on kit and some patterned papers from Dear Lizzy Happy Place and My Mind’s Eye Hooray!

These white alphas are from Ali Edwards and are proving to be quite useful for title cards. The initial + age is also an Ali Edwards technique that she frequently uses to highlight her children’s ages at the time of the layout. Love this!

When I think of the phrase Best Day Ever, I totally thing about Natalie because she uses that phrase often! This definitely was a very fun day for her. The diagonal stripe is one of the patterned papers in the Celebrate kit, and I brought that paper into a blank canvas to create this card. I then layered the phrase element on top of the patterned paper and positioned it into place in Photoshop. I did the same for the brown card next to it.

This bold chevron is also included in the Celebrate kit, and it layers beautifully with dimensional gold alphabets and strips printed on vellum. The vellum pieces are all printed and cut using the Silhouette, all from the Celebrate kit.

You can’t photograph a day at CEC without getting a snap of the tickets. For some reason this photo printed a bit smaller than 3×4, so I trimmed it down and layered it on top of this patterned paper that is part of the Celebrate kit. The card next to it is also from that kit: the polka dot is layered onto a white canvas and the word art on top of that.

I did not embellish the photos at all, since they are already so bright and busy. On the right hand side I created this cute filler card with ephemera from Dear Lizzy Happy Place. The vellum tag and number strip are from Celebrate.

Check out these expressions on Natalie’s face! She was so excited and thrilled. This is her, every day, living her life to the fullest!

This card represents everything I love about Project Life. Taking a simple patterned paper and layering stamps and ephemera on top just makes my heart so happy. If you are at a loss how to fill a pocket, this is a go-to technique.

And here is one last look at the right side:

Hopefully you can see how I balanced the bright, bold colors with white space and kraft cards. This was a fun layout to create! See you tomorrow for a very special project that was a gift for a very special person!

Project Life 2016 | Week 13 Dear Lizzy Happy Place

Hi guys! Today’s layout is from my 2016 Project Life album Week 13. I have used the Project Life app to create and print my layout, and then embellished on top using Dear Lizzy Happy Place. Take a look at my process here:

Ok, so here is the layout as I created it in the Project Life app. I have used the Design K layout with Project 52 Edition journal cards.

Project Life 2016 Week 13

And here is the layout completed:

Project Life 2016 Week 13

This week marked Spring Break, so the kids were home and Alan had a few days off. These photos were taken on Tuesday by Alan, while they were at the park playing!

Project Life 2016 Week 13

I used the word strips from the Dear Lizzy collection along with an initial and a fun design element on each child’s photo. I also used the glitter heart sticker and camera stamp to embellish the calendar card.

Project Life 2016 Week 13

I know the photos of the kids themselves are somewhat “off” in color – these were taken with my husband’s phone and I am so lucky that he takes photos all the time and sends them to me! But they are off by the time they are printed and photographed, and that is ok.

Project Life 2016 Week 13

I really love the 4×4 cards in the center. I am not sure why I chose this design exactly, and I had to manipulate the cards a bit inside the pocket, but this is a fun size to work with.

Project Life 2016 Week 13

On the opposite side I used Dear Lizzy’s transparency, which coordinated perfectly with the journaling card from the Project 52 Edition. I also stapled the transparent quote card.

Project Life 2016 Week 13

The colors in this collection make me so happy, they are bright and fun to use!

Project Life 2016 Week 13

And this camera is perfect. Notice how well the colors tie together from the background of the layout to the turquoise within the Dear Lizzy collection. I call that serendipity.

Project Life 2016 Week 13

I also used One Little Bird’s stamp set from Studio Calico to stamp the numbers for the dates. They are a tad crowded on there, but that’s ok too. That is my layout for today so I will see you back here tomorrow!

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17&19 Using Dear Lizzy Happy Place!

Hi there, I have a TBT layout today from last year’s Project Life to show you. I am working each week to try to finish up my 2015 album, and after this there are only four left to complete. Hooray! Here is the process video:

Here is the layout as I had created it last year. During the months that I was not actively scrapbooking, I was still taking time each month to print my photos and place them in the album. I also chose some products that I wanted to use at the time.

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

And this is the completed layout:

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

So you can see that I created the date card from the back of the overlay from the previous week, adding the Week 17 and a few of the confetti dots from the Dear Lizzy Happy Place stickers.

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

The word strips are perfect for Project Life in this collection. I loved the transparent overlay I had created previously from the Simple Stories I Am collection, so I left it as it was.

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

The kids had pulled out the Twister game and played the most silly, hilarious game that night. Yes, they are in their pajamas and were completely jacked up before bedtime, but they had an absolute blast.

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

Very simple embellishing on these two cards, a word strip and an asterisk and done.

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

I am seriously in love with this cherry embellishment, so I layered it onto the stripe card and added a stamped sentiment. I tried to use my Ombre stamp pad from Hero Arts, but the stamp wasn’t really big enough to see the Ombre. oh well. It’s still cute.

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

Again, minimal embellishments on these cards. I am learning, after doing Project Life for 4 years, that maybe it’s ok to leave some cards plain (gasp, sputter, horror! lol) and not fuss with them too much. This is good for me – last year I felt a sense that I was doing too much and have been making a serious effort to simplify these layouts.

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

For the opposite side, I decided to keep the title card simple.

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

The date card is next to the title card, with a quick tag and glitter alphas.

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

This journal card is from Elle’s Studio Cienna collection and I just added a little of the rub-on tape to add a little color and interest. So easy.

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

This journal card might be one of my favorites ever. One of the hard things about going back to older layouts, especially when journaling has already been added in the Collect app, is knowing what is left to journal? Do I need to add more journaling? This was a really fun list to make, that sort of calls to what is coming – the fun and excitement of summer!

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

This girl still loves her Barbie jeep, and both girls spent a lot of time going up and down that hill, all summer long. The journal card is also from Elle’s Studio, I believe, and the tag as well.

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

These glasses slay me. They fit little Miss and her sassafrass self perfectly, so there you go.

TBT Project Life 2015 Weeks 17 %26 19

What a fun, fresh layout! I really loved working with Dear Lizzy’s products, as always, with their bright colors and fun motifs. I’ll see you soon with more creative fun!
