DIY Project Life Kit Spread

I hope you've been watching my DIY PL Kit Videos on YouTube. If you haven't, after going through my stash I decided to make a few kits to use my stash. My plan is to use each kit at least 3 times. After I use them everything goes back to my stash.

One of the main things I wanted to use from my stash are my Project Life Cards. I have so many! The inspiration behind this kit was the Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party Kit

After choosing my cards I pick embellishments including alpha stickers.

This title card is super simple! I had a few embellishments from Studio Calico Documenter Kits that I wanted to use and I was able to add them to a few pf the kits. The Ticket and chipboard stickers are from Studio Calico and the arrows and felt flower are from Freckled Fawn.

I also wanted to use my stamps more often. The "COOL" stamp is from Studio Calico. The ink is from Messy Box,

I didn't add a 6x6 Paper Pad in this kit so I cut down 3x4 cards for the 3x3 squares. The blue alphas are from Simple Stories and the yellow numbers and alphas are from October Afternoon.

I don't know if I told you but I am obsessed with using my circle die with my photos.

The puffy stickers are from a Messy Box and the vellum phrases are from Frecked Fawn.

This was a very busy week and it was also my daughter's birthday so I had to add an insert! 

I used the candle in the shaker pocket and it was my favorite thing on this spread!

I took a video of her birthday and used a QR Code to add it to the album.

I added the tags from a few of her birthday presents.

Lately I am obsessed with writing my journaling using the Tombow TwinTone Dual Tip Markers.
I hope you are enjoying this DIY PL Kit Series! 

Sunday

Natrional Scrapbooking Day with Citrus Twist Kits!

Happy (inter)National Scrapbooking Day or Weekend! I hope you've been collecting your words! Stay a bit more to get mine! My challenge was to create a mixed media project! It was way out of my comfort zone but I really enjoyed it! 

I made a 6x12 scrapbook layout. To create the background I used Topaz IZINK and Mimosa IZINK from Aladine. I dropped the ink on the paper and dragged it with a card to create the background. I also made some splatters with red mist. 

I also used these wood buttons and the Shimelle Enamel Dots from the April Embellishments Kit and the April and May Pocket Life Kits

This die cut is from the May Die Cuts Pack and the stars from the Puffy Stickers from the May Pocket Life Kit.

 I also added a little sewing in some of the areas to add more details without going too heavy. I hope you enjoyed my project! It was fun to make!

My secret word is DONUT! 😄 Don't forget to visit Nathalie's blog to see her amazing project!



Since you are already here I wanted to share my project using one of the challenge sketches.


Instead of doing a layout I used a traveler's notebook! 


I kept it pretty simple but I had to add a few layers of this beautiful paper behind the photo!

Make sure you join the challenges too! You could win a $50 Gift Card to the CTK Shop!

I can't wait to see what you make!



Last but certainly not least, you can try out Citrus Twist Kits for 25% OFF AND an alphabet stamp!

Don't miss this chance!

Pocket Life Week 13

Hey Everyone! This is the last project using the Savannah Pocket Life Citrus Twist Kit. 

It was a photo heavy and fun week! I had lots of fun stamping! 

I was taking 3x3 photos thinking that I was going to use the page protector with all the 3x3 pocket but I didn't have enough so I used the paper from the kit to mat the photo.

I used a photo for the title. I used a few die cuts to add the week and date!

The plan here was to add a little stamping here and there but it got out of hand and I couldn't stop. I really love the outcome It seems to bring the subject forward.

Whenever you have too many photos and can't decide remember collages.

Instead of my regular journaling I decided to use lists.


Enjoy the process video! I'm also sharing the kit leftovers.



I hope you like these pages!

Pocket Life Week 14

Hi Everyone! This is Jennie with more pages using the Pocket Life Citrus Twist Kit

This week was a bit photo heavy and on top of that I added some Facebook statuses. 

This week I also added the tags of my daughter's glove in a pocket. I love to add tags to my pockets because I feel like packaging changes often and in 5, 10 or 25 years people would be very interested on how they look.

I love how this title card turned out! This patterned paper is beautiful so I didn't want to add to many items. I just needed one of the die cuts from the ephemera pack to add the week and dates.

I love this journaling method where I put a number on a photo and then I used 2 or 3 cards to write all the journaling.

I like to sprinkle a black and white photo once in a while, specially when the quality is not that good.

I used the stamp from the Pocket Life Kit to make a frame around one of the photos.

 This week was so busy and fun that I had to add an insert!


The top pocket turned into a mini layout with very few elements.

Take a look at the process video!
I hope you enjoyed these pages!

Project Life 2018 Cover Page

Hey Everyone! I'm so happy to share this spread with you! I made 6 DIY Kits using my stash. I recently went through all my things so I could destash and I rediscovered so beautiful many items! I also have an ridiculous amount of cards and I really wanted to use them. Kits are a big help in my process and making this layout was proof of how fun is using them! 

This kit's inspiration came from the Crate Paper - Cute Girl Collection - 6 x 6 Paper Pad. I chose that paper pad first and then the journaling cards and embellishments. These alphas are the Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa Collection Black Thickers. I made these hearts with felt and my trusty Lawn Fawn Heart Dies

For my cover page I used photos printed with my Instax Share SP-2 Printer. I brought mine with this Instax bundle with a battery charger and extra prints.

I used a simple formula to make all my cards look similar using different colors.

I used the Lawn Cuts Dies - Outside In Stitched Circle Stackables to cut these circles out of project life cards. I'm also trying to use them as embellishments.

Here are the DIY Videos and the Process Video to this layout! 






I hope you enjoyed them!
