Hi guys, it’s a Disney day today! I am ready to get through the LEGOLAND portion of the album and get back to Disney. So two layouts again today to get that portion completed, and here is my process video for those:
Here is one of the layouts with just photos and journaling cards from the Modern Edition Core Kit:
Here is that layout completed:
And then to finish up the day I added the map of the park (and if you didn’t watch the video yet, be sure to because you will absolutely die laughing at my silly, stupid mistake I made in cutting this thing!!!!!):
Did you guys like the gallery last week? I think I will do that again with this first layout. You can click on any photo to see it larger and to scroll through all the photos.
Now for this map. My first advice, and I knew this going into it and didn’t listen to my own advice so I am just a nerd, is to always work with a duplicate or a copy! I totally cut this too short and it was the only one I had so I just had to work with it. No worries. Laugh and move on.
The only embellishment I added was this one single glitter word phrase that came in a previous Gossamer Blue kit:
That’s all for today, my loves. I will be back tomorrow with TBT and our construction project, so see you then! Also be sure to check back on Friday because I am introducing a brand new project and you are going to love it. See you soon!
Hi guys, I decided to divert from my usual Tuesday Project Life videos today so I could spend a little time in my One Little Word project. I am participating in Ali Edwards’ One Little Word class this year and have chosen the word Shine. The goal and purpose of the class and of choosing a word for the year is to choose a word that speaks to me and that helps direct and add meaning to my year. Here is a look at my thought processes and album content in response to the prompts for March and April:
So you might remember back in March the prompt was to create a vision board using magazine images. The idea was to simply choose images and colors and texts that speak to you and that reflect your word, simply what you like. For March in my album I chose to include a photo of my vision board, along with a few reflections. I created a divider from this heart transparency that is from Maggie Holmes’ Shine collection. The month tab is Studio Calico, and the acrylic word is from Gossamer Blue.
I included this photo on this layout simply because of the way the sun was shining into the car and onto my hair that day. I added a chipboard embellishment that is from Ali Edwards’ Cheer Story Kit.
On the back of this month’s layout I added a photo from the beach the day my son got hurt. I wrote some of my reflections from that event, particularly how I saw myself for the first time being the calm and focused one. I also painted a wash background and printed this quote from Pinterest.
For the month of April I chose a white stripe transparency from WeRMemory Keepers laying on its side. The prompt for April was to write questions pertaining to your word and process your word and how it evidences itself in your life. I used filler and journaling cards from the Modern Edition Core Kit to copy my notes down, and then I slid them into the pockets.
The back of this month is several more of my journaling cards and I also realized that the quote card is not the one I originally planned to use, but I think I will keep this one as it is because it still fits.
That is all for this day’s inspiration. I hope you have enjoyed hearing some of my One Little Word experiences and how I am working through that word in my life! See you back here tomorrow for Disney!
Hi guys! I’m working on my Disney album today on Day 2 with our visit to LEGOLAND. I decided to use my Modern Edition Core Kit as journaling cards in this portion of the album, so take a look at my process!
This week’s post includes two layouts, and next week will as well. Here are the layouts with only photos and journaling cards:
Here are these two layouts completed:
I think what I will do is create a gallery for each of these layouts because there are quite a few photos to show you. You can click on each photo to see close ups.
And here is a gallery featuring the second layout images. Click on any image to see close ups.
I hope you enjoyed that! See you tomorrow with my 2014 Project Life construction documentation!
