Today I am sharing a layout I did for the challenge over on the Studio Calico message board, I asked the members to choose a layout from their inspiration boards and lift it.
I loved this layout April Foster made HERE, it was actually my favourite layout from the entire DT, Actually I loved it that much I had to buy all the inks that April used on it along with the awesome alpha stamp set. You all know I am not a stamper so this was very out my comfort zone.
The stamping took a while as every letter was different colours but I am pleased with the end result.
I did another layout and will be back with that soon.
Just came back to add that I have started another challenge over on the message board, this time to kill a kit , if you want to join us just head over HERE.
Today I just wanted to say a bit about my project life and share my first spread.
I had missed doing project life last year, I miss documenting the small things and looking back on them so I decided this year to do it again but on a smaller hassle free scale. I had decided to do it 6x8 size and just do it monthly or when I have something to document kind of thing.
I say the other day and printed the pictures I wanted to use so far this month and grabbed my January My Paper Balloon kit and got to it.
After the first page I realised that 6x8 is not going to work for me, yes, I love this size for documenting holidays, DD and so on but for PL it just is not going to work. Seriously I have used almost all the page protectors that came in the album so far, no joke. Yes I can include less and make the pictures smaller but that is not my style. I have an 8 year old that I want to be able to look back on these albums and love looking at the 947479484 pictures in there.
I have now pre-ordered a 9x12 album from Studio Calico in the wood grain and when it arrives I will just transfer what I have done so far into that album. Sorted.
Here is the title page for my album which will also fit in the new sized album.
So just before Christmas I was sent an email from the lovely owner over at My Paper Balloon asking if I would like to be on her design Team, of course I was interested, as I loved working with her kit back when I was a guest in August.
Remember I did these pages for my US trip? I loved the kit so so much.
Now I sat yesterday and have done a few spreads for my January PL using the main January kit and add on. I also snagged a couple of the past kits too that I had loved so had lots of fun.
I will be back to share things once I get pictures taken etc, and can not wait for you all to see.
