Project Life: On A Whim with April Lilli

Hi Everyone! This month on the April Lilli Shop the featured collection is On A Whim by Amy Tangerine! I am super excited because I am a big Amy Tangerine Fan and the colors in this collection are so fun and gorgeous!

I am still catching bits from my 2016 album and I knew I wanted to use the In Good Company Paper with those fun 3x3 squares.

For the 3x4 pockets I used the Good Stuff Paper. I like using the patterns strips at the bottom of the paper. I almost use it as washi to create layers.

The Puffy Letter Thickers from this collection are so freaking cute!! Next to the title card I have a photo of a book my daughter was reading that week. I also used the Read Stamp from Elle's Studio which I love to use to document everything my family reads! 

I can't stop reading the "Wicked Smart" card with a Boston accent! LOL The 2 photos next to it were taken by my 3 years old daughter. I like to include some of the photos my daughters take in my album even though a few of them are blurry. They show their life from their perspective. They aren't perfect but they tell a story. On my Project Life stories are very important! 

The On A Whim Sticker Book is everything!!! It has a lot of fun phrases, images and alpha stickers!

The alphas in the On A Whim Sticker Book are white so you can use them on top of dark photos like I did the photo of my daughter lining up Shopkins on my dresser. I added little lower stickers to the cacti and I like how it looks! This line is so colorful! I love it!

During the month of June you can get On A Whim by Amy Tangerine for 20% OFF! Yay! This is THE Summer Collection you need to document your fun Summer days and vacations!
I hope you enjoyed these pocket pages!

Project Life with the Oh Deer Me Kit from Freckled Fawn

Hey Everyone! In this post I am sharing a Project Life spread using the June Oh Deer Me Kit with some pieces of the May Oh Deer Me Kit. The cards are from the Happy Place Core Kit from Dear Lizzy. 

I am crazy about word stickers! The June kit comes with the Summertime Chipboard Phrases and they are very versatile!

To journal I used number stickers in the photos and I wrote the journaling in 2 cards using my typewriter.

These Yellow Puffy Script Alphas Stickers are perfect! My favorite Freckled Fawn Alphas ever! They also come in white!

I knew this card would be perfect for this popsicle Resin Shape and I added a Enamel Heart Sticker for extra fun!

The black scallop washi tape pops out of the project life card and the enamel dots are perfect little details to add a visual triangle.

These Acetate Frames so whimsical and perfect! I used the Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue to glue them since it's a clear glue and once it dries you can't really see it.

The Summertime Washi Stickers Sheets are perfect to layer! On top I added White Foam Stickers. They are really cool and also come in black!

To glue the sunglasses Resin Shape and the Acrylic Picture Perfect word I used the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.

Check out the process video to see how I made this spread! I also have a quick unboxing of the June Oh Deer Me Kit! 

Thanks for visiting my blog! Take Care! 


Together in the Leaves with Doodlebug

Hey Everyone! I had a few layouts on my computer that I haven't shared with anyone so I scheduled a few posts for the next month! I made this one for the Doodlebug Design Team Call. I didn't get picked but I really liked this layout so I wanted to share it. I used the Flea Market Collection. I love the colors and the plaid patterns.

I love the Doodle Pops 3D Pops and I love typewriters so this little embellishment is perfect! The cardstock with the dots is from Core'dinations.
I filled the bottom of the page with leaves die cuts and stickers to mimic the leaves on the photo. The small alpha stickers are from October Afternoon.

I hope you enjoyed this layout! Take Care! 


Project Life with Freckled Fawn

Hey Everyone! Today I'm going to share some Project Life pages using my Freckled Fawn stash! I don't know if you heard but I made the Freckled Fawn Design Team! Yay! I am super excited! This is a dream design team to be on! This is one of the projects I submitted to the call. 

In these pages, I used the January Oh Deer Me Kit and the Fresh Start Journaling Card Set.

I also mixed some Citrus Twist Journal Cards with a card from the High Five Project Life Kit

Freckled Fawn alpha stickers are always amazing! 

This card is probably my favorite! I used a card from the High Five Core Kit and I filled the labels with word stickers from Tim Holtz and my roller stamps.  

To write the journaling I used a number next to the photo and wrote the journaling in a few of the cards. Sometimes I like to add my daughters' schoolwork or art work on my album so I take photos of them and put them in 3x4 photos and sometimes 4x6.

This card inspired this washi tape layout. I used my favorite washi from Freckled Fawn. I like to use skinny washi a LOT! On top I added a puffy word and cardstock words.

The puffy white word is from the January Embellishment Kit.


I hope you enjoy this process video! Take Care!

Hi Everyone! I hope you had a great Mother's Day! Today I am sharing these cards I made using the Flora Collection from Carta Bella. This is the featured collection on the April Lilli Shop for the month of May. For the first card, I used the Peony Posy Bunch PaperPeony Posy Cluster Paper and Flora Ephemera Pack. I stamped the HELLO using the Flora Simple Stated 4x6 Stamps. I made the black and white feather using washi tape. You can see how I made it in THIS VIDEO

For my second, card I used a card from the Lily Meadow Journal Cards, Rose Garden Bouquet Paper, Petunia Patch Paper and a paper bow I made with Rose Garden Journal Cards Paper. I used Tombow Foam Tape to give my cards dimension. 

To dress up my envelopes I use the Tombow Removable Adhesive to trace the flap of the envelope. Then I cut it out and I use the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive to glue everything down. For this last one, I used Rose Garden Bouquet Paper, Peony Pony Cluster, Flora Ephemera Pack and a Waffle Flower die cut.

These are great cards for any occasion. This collection is great for cardmaking.
Remember that yo can get this collection for 20% OFF during the month of May!
