Hello, hello! I'm super late getting my first projects shared...AGAIN. Ugh. This past week has just gone by so fast that I've not had time to get onto the computer. We head off for our holiday tomorrow so I've been working some crazy hours getting everything sorted so I won't have to worry about it for 2.5 weeks! Anywho, enough with the excuses!
OCTOBER kits are out. October, people! OCTOBERRRRRRRRR! That is freaking me out. We're only a couple months from Christmas. Wha?! Gawd. But the kits...they are AMAZZING! This month I started with the PL kit because I may have been a little stressed out at being a few weeks behind so I'll share that first ;)
Hi scrappy friends! Can you believe I'm back to share another page?!
This time I thought I'd go with a few PL spreads using the Pocket Life kit. Lots of amazing exclusive goodies in the Pocket Life kit this month (which is always a good thing!).
My PL spreads are super simple I know but it's how I get it done - if I complicate things I'll just give up and I don't want to. I really enjoyed looking back at my original PL spreads (2011/2012) so I'm determined to make this work! I'm not following any format in terms of how often I create a spread but I think I'll probably keep it a couple pages per month.
My first week has a combination of the 2x2 pockets on the left side and 3x4/4x6 pockets on the
right side. I tried to stick with a green/grey/red colour scheme (although that blue die-cut had to go there, I mean I did a page about magic and it says "TA-DA!" - how perfect was that?! Haha).
Hi friends! I won't apologise for the lack of posting again (....but I am sorry...lol..), I just can't get into the routine/habit of posting. I do OK for a couple weeks and then I get off the wagon again. Hopeless ;)
I am excited to say that I'm back giving Project Life another shot! I've been toying with the idea for a while (because I love Diane's PL pages!) and I happen to do a little bit of cleaning the other week and we ended up flipping through some of my older folders. It was just so awesome to read the random stories and look through all the photo's. SO AWESOME. We sat down and pointed at photo's and commented/laughed/remembered that moment and it was just so good. So I'm starting it back up again! I'm not sure I can commit to the 12x12 double-page weekly spreads that I used to do (even as awesome as they are to look back on) so I'm going to start with my loved 6x8 format. Well I partly because I love it and partly because I have dozens of random 6x8 pockets to use up ;)
This is my third year with Project Life. Still love it. I've simplified it this year though, only doing half page spreads per week and I'm more about getting the photo's/stories into the pockets than making them pretty. Which has been working great for me, happier with the whole process.
I've not posted any PL layouts before, not sure why. Well not true - I think its mostly because my layouts are never as glamorous as the those layouts I admire, that my life really isn't all that exciting so why on earth would I want to subject anyone to read about it (haha!) or that I just don't feel the need to share the everyday things with the whole wide world. (Not that I know if anyone is actually reading this blog, lol).
But this week I've had a bit of a break from layouts, and I decided to challenge myself by using Aimee's weekly spread as inspiration for mine. I love what she did this week, the colours she used and want mine to look that pretty! (Make sure you click that link to check it out if you haven't already, it is gorgeous!)
Typical week for me - nothing really happened. Worked crazy hours, drank heaps of coffee, weather was bit bleah (but still warm for this time of year!) and Zack was Zack :)
I used one of the printable cards (suck it up buttercup) from Gillian - LOVE them all! Cant wait to use the rest. Instead of whining about working on a Saturday in a message I thought the card summed it up pretty well... As a side note, we don't work Saturday's unless its super busy which is why I was so MEH about it, haha.
Not as stunning - but I'm happy with the end result. (And yes, I should have used more blue/grean to balance it all out - live and learn! Will do better next time Aimee, hehe).
