Project Life: Autumn Weeks

  Happy Monday! Today I'm sharing with you some Autumn Project Life Pages! Fall is my favorite time to document! (Yuck Winter, please go away cold!) I used items from my Freckled Fawn kits. I've been hoarding them for too long and I realized I need to use them! In here I used items from the November Kit and the February Oh Deer Me Kit.

The page protector from this side is from Simple Stories.

This page protector with fun 3x3 pockets is from October Afternoon! Is probably my favorite style but is the hardest one to work with.

This Hello Autumn Card is from the November Journaling Cards Set. I used cork and a Lawn Fan Die to cut the number 46.

My daughter disguised this turkey for school. I like to take photos of her drawings and school work and put it in 3x4 photos.

I used the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive to glue these wood veneers.

This card is actually wrong I was supposed to put a 47 in this one. I noticed after photos and video were done but I changed it. The numbers are from Fancy Pants Designs and the words Week and NoVeMbEr are from Pretty Little Studio.

I love this pocket page with Pretty Little Studio acrylics from the Oakley Avenue Collection from Ashley Horton.

I am so happy with this pocket! I have so many wood veneers! I really need to start using them! The leaves are from Freckled Fawn and the sequins are a mix from Pretty Little Studio and Spiegelmom Scraps.

I hope you enjoyed these pages as much as I enjoy these memories!

April Lilli: Heart Day Gift Bag

Hey Everyone! For my second April Lilli project using the Heart Day Collection I altered this gift bag. I love this ADORE YOU floral pattern, I would wallpaper my craft room with it! I used the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive to glue everything. This is where my daughter carried her Valentine's so it really needed a strong adhesive to hold it. 
At the top I used a row of the HUGS AND KISSES paper and I rouged crepe paper behind it. Underneath that I used the SWEETHEARTS paper and I fringed it to copy the pattern. I so wished I had fringe scissors but I would probably used them once a year. I also cut the bottom of a few pieces and I lifted the paper to give it more volume. The heart is from the Heart Day 12X12 CHIPBOARD STICKERS and the Happy Valentine's Day Sticker is from the Heart Day PHRASE STICKERS. The little tag is from the Heart Day EPHEMERA PACK.
You can get any item from the Heart Day Collection at the April Lilli Shop for 20% OFF during the month of February! Make sure you grab your goodies before they are gone! 


Project Life with April Lilli using Heart Day By Crate Paper

Happy February! Speaking of Love Month, the featured collection at the April Lilli Shop is Heart Day By Crate Paper! I am in LOVE! It is a gorgeous collection and you can get it at the April Lilli Shop during the month of February for 20% OFF.
I made a project life spread using this line. These are colors and patterns that I use every day, not just on Valentine's Day. I love pink and I have 2 girls plus I love hearts! 

I puffy hearts these Heart Day Puffy Hearts so much!!! They are probably my favorite thing in this collection. I used numbers in the photos to write my journaling on a few cards using my typewriter.

 I love the Charming Thickers from this collection! The title card looks really cute with the tag from the Ephemera Pack. I covered the part that said "Happy Valentine's Day!" with the small tag from the Layered Embellishments.

Since this was a slow week I added some photos of books me and my daughter were reading. The book related stamps are from Elle's Studio. The arrows are from the 12x12 Chipboard Stickers.
I hope you enjoyed these pages! If you want to see how I made them check out this Process Video!

December Daily 2016: I Finished!!

Hello Everyone! I am pleased to announce that I FINISHED MY DECEMBER DAILY! YAY! If you want to see a flip through of the whole album check out THIS VIDEO
This is a really photo heavy post but I wanted to include all the photos in one post. 

I used the Mistletoe Kisses Collection from Simple Stories. You can see how I made the cover in THIS VIDEO.


For the first page I wanted to keep it as plain as possible since I wanted the large photo to show through the pockets. 


 The "december stories" acrylic words is from Pretty Little Studio.

I took this photo with my cellphone and used the Color Story App to edit and add the stars.

I used Bella Blvd. paper on the back of the photo to make it sturdier.



Since I live far away from my family I included photos my mom and my sister sent me from their tree.  




In this layout I included a pocket to add a hidden photo. I used the candy as a pull tab.  

I also tried a new recipe so I decided to include it in my book!


In the 2x8 shaker pocket I added adhesive bradz from Simple Stories back to back!  



 
I thought this card needed a small extra detail and I stamped all over this card using white.

I saw that the Ali Edwards kits had really big tags and I loved that. Lucky me, I found these huge tags at Tuesday Morning for $1.99.

On December 6th my daughter read "Olivia Counts Down to Christmas" so in the little pocket she added her own Countdown to Christmas. 

On the shaker pocket I added sequins and acrylic stars from Pretty Little Studio.

This day we had breakfast with Santa. I used the big tags for portrait 4x6 photos.


On the back of the tag I made this Christmas tree shape with little pieces. I was inspired my Melinda Spinks to do this.



The big red foil numbers are from the Yuletide Collection from Pink Paislee.


This is the least Christmas-y spread on the album. I used products from Studio Calico.  


This day we decorated gingerbread houses and I included the box in the album.

On the little pocket on the right I hid a tag with a Shortbread Cookie Recipe.

On the 21st I had a cookie marathon so I documented the cookies I made.


This is a really old My Mind's Eye Collection. It worked perfect for this day. The huge paper is for journaling and making the photo on the back sturdier.


I took a photo of the cookie boxes I made as gifts and printed the photo 6.5 x 8.5.

Foil is so difficult to photograph! I wish you could see how pretty this looks in real life! On the Santa photo I added some glitter and shape sequins and I sealed the pocket with my Fuse Tool.


The back of this foil clear is plain red so I tried to mirror the 25 on the back.




These cards are from Elle's Studio. I asked my daughter to journal a little bit about Christmas Day.

In the last pocket I included pieces and manuals from their toys and projects my daughter made at school like the Grinch!

I hope you enjoyed these pages. Thank you so much if you made it all the way to the bottom! Did you finished your December Daily?
