Project Life Sunday: Week Four

Happy Sunday! Another Project Life 2015 Week in the books! Yay!

This week I used papers from Bella Blvd. and of course I added my Currently Card. 

This week was really weird for us, normally we are all weirdos but we really got our weird on. That was a disclaimer in case you felt the weird in the pages. LOL Even the weather was on the 70's at the beginning of the week and at the end it was snowing.

For the title I used a Bella Blvd. Card, Thickers, Freckled Fawn stickers and enamel dots and like always I used a label for the date stamp.

This small flair is from the February Oh Deer Me Kit. I'm kinda liking using my quirky & weird handwriting on my photos. :) It has taken me a while to get used to it but I'm liking it. 

The journaling on the tiny type sticker says "Do you want to kick a snowman?" because in the photo my baby was kicking the snowgirl. I used a Freckled Fawn heart stamp on the turquoise paper and the alpha stickers are from the dollar section at Joann's.

 I used a 2 inch circle punch to punch out the camera and around I used a Pinkfresh Studio Die and a Freckled Fawn puffy sticker heart.

Thanks for checking out this post! 
Have a great week!

Project Life Sunday: Week 5!

This Project Life Sunday is brought to you by things you do last minute! LOL 
For this layout I used paper I hoarded, these are from the Kiss Me and Snapshots Collections from Bella Blvd. 

This week my daughter had a 100 Days of School Activity and had to dress up like an old lady.

I love this title card but I really didn't do much to it. I just used patterned paper, the blue sticker with the cloud, alphas and a label. 

That geotag is a die from Technique Tuesday that I got from Paper Issues, the heart on the circle is from Freckled Fawn. The green alphas are from the dollar spot at Joann's. On the right I used vellum to make a pocket. I used the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive since it's clear, it won't show through the paper.

The numbers and the clear stickers are from Freckled Fawn, the pink ones are from the Joann's Dollar Spot.

I'm trying to use my handwriting on my PL Layout but to write on photos I still prefer my typewriter. 

This white alphas are from Freckled Fawn.

Well I hope you enjoyed this last minute Project Life Sunday!
If you have any questions leave them at the comment section and I will get back to ya!
Have a great President's Day! Go hit those sales!

Project Life Sundays: Week 52

Happy Sunday! These are the last pages of my second album for 2014! Yay! Now I'm printing photos from late January and February to slip in my album and start working on those! 

I have a mix of the Kiwi Core Kit, the Happy Core Kit and a Blush Card on this layout! 

This was Christmas Week and I don't have many Christmas photos because I covered that on my December Daily which you can see HERE

The small green alphas are from the dollar section at Joann's. One of my goals this year is to embrace my handwriting and use it on my Project Life because one: my typewriter is loud and I like to craft while my baby naps and two: I love to see my mom's and my grandma's handwriting so I want my girls and future generations to see mine. 

For this title card I used big alphas from Fancy Pants Designs and small ones from the Joann's dollar section. I also have lots and lots of labels that I printed and cut using my Silhouette. 

I made the cork circle embellishment using a Freckled Fawn Stamp, Cork and a one inch circle punch. You can see more handmade embellishments ideas HERE. On the next card I used a 2 inch circle punch with a Freckled Fawn Resin and a word I wrote with my Dymo Label.

This is the last page of my 2014 Book! Woot Woot!

These awesome numbers are from Freckled Fawn and so is the washi tape!

I added these Pandora emails because I love music! I listen to music almost every day.

 I hope you enjoyed these last pages!

Project Life Sunday: Week 51

Hi and Welcome to another Project Life Sunday! I am so happy to announce that I just finished the last page *on my second album* of 2014! I'll be sharing later this week! 

This week I'm just sharing one side of my layout. The other side is about the Christmas Party my daughter had at her school and I hate blurring faces (it looks creepy to me) so I decided not sharing that whole side.

All the alphas on this photo are from the Oh Deer Me Kit from Freckled Fawn! I used to be a kit hater but I LOVE my kits every month! I just saw the February Reveal! Swoon! 

The circle die is from Pinkfresh Studio! All the cards on this layout are from the Happy Core Kit, except the Currently card which is from Rukristin.

This is part of the other side of layout! 

I hope you enjoyed this week's short post!
Have a great week!

Project Life Sunday: Week 50

Happy Sunday! Welcome to Project Life Sunday! In an effort to get caught up and give my blog some love I will be posting Project Life Spreads every Sunday! YAY! If you want to see other things I do around blog land remember to follow me on Instagram (jenniegarcian) and Facebook

I know, eww but sometimes life is gross. LOL My girls were sick and for the first time in a few days my baby was laughing so I wasn't looking for a booger photo bomb, it just happened. 

For this spread I used the Super Cute Mini Kit from Project Life. It looks like the My Girl Collection from American Crafts. The cream alphas are from Basic Grey and I love them! 

I don't know about you but I'm nosy so I love to see what everyone writes on their Currently List Card. If you are nosy too just check out the #currentlylist on Instagram. Love the bubble speech die cuts! They are from Pretty Little Studio! For the week title I used Thickers.

This map stamp/die is from Lawn Fawn I colored the states with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. All the puffy stickers are from Freckled Fawn. To glue everything I used Tombow Adhesives specially the Tombow Mono Adhesive Permanent. 

I kept this one really simple. One of my things for this year will be simplicity. I'm hoping that will allow me to make more pages! 
Have a great Sunday!
Take Care!

Project Life: Week 43!

Happy Monday! 
For those in the U.S. I hope you are having a great holiday!
My ordeal to get slightly caught up on Project Life continues...
I had the right part of this spread done but I still needed to finish the left.

 The papers I used for this spread are from the 6x6 Miss Caroline Pad from My Mind's Eye. It's an oldie but a goodie that I have been hoarding.

This second part I made it using a few of the Creative Retreat Kits

I love making title cards! I used washi and wood veneers from Freckled Fawn, Thickers and an ancient brad that I got in a crop I had with dinosaurs. 

My daughter was not feeling the photo. I bet you can't tell. LOL

For more details about the second part of this layout check out THIS POST with links to the Creative Retreat Kits I used! 

To glue the wood veneers I used my BFF the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive!

I'm going to try posting Project Life Spreads every Sunday! I hope that will motivate me to make extra spreads each week!
Remember to stalk me on social media (inks on the right) to get updates of my projects!  See you next week! Take Care!

CHA Make and Takes with instructions!

I wish I could've taken all of you with me! I really do! But since I know many of you couldn't be there, here are the instructions for the make and takes I did while I was working at the Tombow USA Booth! Thanks to our partners: Fancy Pants Designs, My Mind's Eye, Jillibean Soup, Core'dinations, Walnut Hollow, Prima Marketing Inc., May Arts Ribbon, Sizzix, DCWV and Canvas Corp!

Tombow Adhesives:
Tombow Xtreme Adhesive
Tombow Xtreme Tough Tabs Tombow Adhesive Dots

To make the inside of the matchbox use a piece of 5 ¼ inch x 6 ¾ inch paper. Score the paper at 7/8 inch on each side. *Tip: Score on the inside of paper (what will be the inside of the box). Make   horizontal cuts on the 5 ¼ inch x 6 ¾ inch paper but stop on the vertical score marks. Put the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the little squares on the outside so you can adhere them inside of the big rectangle. Create the outside of the box with a 10 x 5 inch piece of paper. Score at 1 inch, 4 ½ inch, 5 ½ inch and 9 inch. Apply Tombow Xtreme Adhesive to the corner of the score mark at 1 inch and adhere it to the inside of the big rectangle to create your box. Now decorate your box! Wrap the yellow tulle around the box and tie it in the front. Hold it in place using a Tombow Adhesive Dot. Use the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the back of the tag and place it on the box. Glue the burlap bow with a Tombow Xtreme Tough Tabs and glue a button on top using the Tombow Adhesive Dots.

Tombow Adhesives:

Tombow Xtreme Tough Tabs
Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue

Cut all the pieces for your book and fold them in half. Use a piece of paper to make a template for the holes on the spine. You are going to make holes at 1 ½ , 2, 2 ½ , 3 ½ , 4 and 4 ½ inches. Place this paper on the center of the bundle of pages and hold it with a paper clip while you make the holes using a paper piercer. Then remove the template to sew. To thread the twine, it helps to put a little bit of the Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue on the tip. Leave at least 3 inches of twine outside the third hole to make a bow at the end. Start sewing, from the outside of the spine you going to get in through the third hole (at 2 ½ inches). Once inside you go up a hole (at 2 inches), and when you are outside go in through the top hole (at 1 ½ inches). Then go back down to the 2 inch mark and go back in through the 2 ½ inch mark. Go out through the fourth hole (at 3 ½ inches), then back in to the one below (4 inches). Get back out through the last one, then up to the 4 inches hole and finally go out through the 3 ½ inches hole and tie a bow with the pieces of twine. Now decorate the brag book using the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, glue the brag card, the tag and the ticket. Tie a bow on the twine on the tag and add a clothespin. To glue the flair button use the Tombow Xtreme Tough Tabs

Cut the gift bag using a Sizzix die. Fold the score marks and put the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the small flaps from the pieces on the side. Glue the flap from the bottom first and then mold the sides to the big part of the purse. Once it’s assembled decorate the bag with the Jillibean Card using the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, then add the Prima Flower with the Tombow Adhesive Dot and finally add a few enamel dots.

Start by coloring the skin with the Irojiten Color Pencils using a soft circle motion. Start with the darkest color next to the hair. Then gradually use lighter colors. Don’t color the eyes and lips yet. Then use the 020 Peach Dual Brush Pen to blend the colors on the skin. For the makeup use the DL-06 Hummingbird as a liner, the DL-05 Verdigris under the eyebrow and the rest color in VP-05 Asparagus. For the lips, color with F-01 Plastic Pink between the lips and on the corner and color the rest with VP-02 Almond Blossom when you are done blend it all with a 761 Carnation Dual Brush Pen. Now move onto the hair, color the green strands of hair first and then color the brown portion of the hair make lines on the hair with the darkest color but just a portion of the hair (always leave a space without color so the next colors can look lighter) then using a lighter color pull that darker shade into it to blend it. At the end always use the lightest or scribble with the lightest shade you have on a Blending Palette and use the Colorless Blender to make an even lighter shade and use that at the end. Finally use the Tombow Adhesive Dots to glue the flowers and add the Crystals.

Mini Board
Small frame with a pocket and a cork background to pin your important notes!

Tombow Adhesives:

Tombow Foam Tape

Run the the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the wooden frame. *The Adhesive is very strong and running it through the cork might break it. Remove the backing from the cork and place it on the frame. Take the backing off the piece of trim and place it on top of the paper semicircle. Cut 1/8 pieces of the Tombow Foam Tape and place them around the bottom of the semicircle to create a pocket. Keep them close together. Once you are done place it in the bottom of the frame. Glue the die cut to the paper on the frame using the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive. *Don’t put the glue on the top part that floats above the frame. Finally add enamel dots.

Using the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive glue the paper on the paper bag and then add the day arrow die cut. Find a spot to put the cork doily and put the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the paper. *This glue is very strong if you put it on the doily you might break it. For the same reason you should use the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the die cut and then put it on top of the doily. Finally add enamel dots.

Using the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive glue the oval paper onto the wooden frame. Use the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to put the trim around the frame. Start at the bottom so you can’t see where they connect. Assemble the bow. Use the Tombow Xtreme Permanent on the center of the main piece and bend one of the sides to form the bow, apply more glue on the center and fold the other side. Take the smaller piece and apply Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive to the back of the whole piece and fold it around the center of the main piece of the bow. Add this whole piece to the last piece using the Tombow Adhesive Dots. Finally add the whole bow to the frame using Tombow Xtreme Tough Tabs.
