And welcome to week twenty of our Project Life album also referred to by the kids as “our book”. I love that.
Week twenty was a fabulous one around here. Our THRIVE t-shirts continued to reach all corners of the earth including America where the inspiring Becky Higgins received hers. Becky posted that pic you see on Instagram and shared the love, message and information about of our fund raiser for our beautiful friend Jen Lake. Not only was it a thrill that she got behind our efforts but it was also an amazing feeling to have this woman wearing my script. She has been a
And welcome to week twenty of my Project Life journey. Short and sweet today. I’m on a roll and I’m praying that it will last long enough for me to reach my goal of completing my 2014 album before the year is out. Fingers crossed. I can do it! This layout literally only took me 30 minutes to complete even with the little bit of stitching I added using a Amy Tangerine embroidery kit available in my shop here.
I was inspired by Kellie Winnell of Give a Girl a Blog to use more 4×6 photos. Love how they look.
Welcome to week twenty of my Project Life journey.
For week twenty I used my June mini kit. I needed to get my week twenty done quickly (I’m a little behind) and I completed it during the school holidays and I wanted to be around them which, on this particular rainy day, was in the loungeroom where the heater and movies were.
All I needed with me were my photos, my trusty black Artline felt tip pen, my black stazon ink pad, a couple of stamp sets from Give a Girl a Stamp, my roller tape, my Midnight core kit and, of course, my June mini kit.
I love this photo of William on the horse. He’s learning to ride. We are really experiencing life and saying ‘yes’ to opportunities.
I had a bit of fun cutting into the patterned paper so that the design on the paper worked around my photos.
Poor Stella. She had to wait until she was 8 years old to lose her first tooth!
Here I cut into a piece of journaling card from my Midnight core kit.
Love, love, LOVE this stamp from Give a Girl a Stamp. There was no problems stamping on the mister hueyed journaling card that was included in my mini kit.
I was a little worried as the mister dried a little chalky but when using the stazon black ink there was no problem at all.
Petra’s cork stars were magic to work with.
The two flairs included in the mini kit came from A Piece of Cake Designs. I love them.
Instead of adhering the flair buttons directly onto the journaling cards I put them onto the outside of the page protector. It adds texture to the page (which I miss when using page protectors) and it makes for a smoother, easy to photograph page. This idea was inspired by a post I read in our Project Life Australia Group.
I included a couple of photos that I had created in A Beautiful Mess app. I love the app but I forget to use it.
I was really proud of this months confetti pocket. 🙂
Realising that I primarily use black ink when stamping I tried a bit of gold pigment ink. I can’t wait to get my hands on some gold stazon ink. This was a little too ‘soft’. This stamp is another Give a Girl a Stamp (of course).
Do you ever just enjoy project lifing so much that you finish a week and want to jump straight into the next one BUT then life prevents you and you get that pang of panic because you’re not quite sure when you’ll get to continue your creative project life journey again???? Sigh. That happened to me. I can’t wait (!) to get stuck into week twenty-one!!!!!
A LITTLE PERSONAL NOTE TO MY CUSTOMERS | Thank you to all who participated in my sale yesterday. You completely overwhelmed me. Here I was thinking that I wouldn’t sneak up on a sale, that instead I’d just go for it and get straight to the point. 50% off. BAM!
I had scheduled the sale for 5 days but had to end it not 12 hours after it had begun. I needed to catch my breath and get caught up on packing the orders that had come in AND spend heaps of quality time with the kiddos. They went back to school today. I love the school holidays and I loved having them home.
Being a one (wo)man show it’s busy, overwhelming, rewarding, hectic, chaotic and oh so much fun and believe me, I am so very grateful to you all. THANK YOU!
My 50% off sale will resume in the next day or so after I have all the orders placed so far sent out. x
Have a FANTASTIC day! xxx
