Make | 6×8 (and 8×8) Project Life – January

6x8 Project Life - January

Moving along with the Project Life pages, because that is all I can seem to work on lately!

This spread is crazy simple…just cards for the pockets, journaling, and a touch of stamping. I added an insert by (once again) cutting a 6×8 page of 3×4 pockets in half so I had a little more room to work with. The “Love this cover” card was made with a mix of a phrase stamp from Studio Calico, and that Kelly Purkey alphabet that I’m loving so much right now!

I had to put that Vogue cover in my book, I love it so much. (Oh…and please note that it’s “Bass” not “Ass” Drum of Death in that photo. I couldn’t seem to edit it enough to have that show up very well, lol)

6x8 Project Life | January

All I have been working on lately is Project Life stuff, so here’s another complete spread!

With all the pages I’ve been making, I went to purchase more albums and found that my favorite 8×8 style by We R Memory Keepers has been DISCONTINUED. Agggghhh! A broad search on the internet brought up some pink ones in stock, so I had to snag a couple right away. But if anyone has any 8×8 We R albums they need to get rid of, contact me! I’m not ready to switch to another size yet. Sigh.

So anyway, remember how excited I was about Simple Stories new 4×6 protectors? Well, here is one of them in action! I printed these two local newspaper covers from the Newseum website, and added to this protector…love this addition to that crazy Seahawks playoff game.

The facing page is from a January magazine that made the perfect background for a list of books I read that month. (Now if only every issue I receive had a photo of a fashionable woman with a stack of books in it)

6x8 Project Life | January

Yay for scrapping again! I’ve been on a crazy spree lately of trying to get my 2015 album caught up, and it’s getting there…slowly, but surely. (My worst habit is leaving a spot for journaling, but then moving on to other things before I actually get it written down)

I stumbled upon this quote on Pinterest and, oh man…was so in need of seeing those words, so it had to go in the book. I typed it out in a Word document in a font I liked, and printed out on plain white cardstock. Think I might try to do this more often, I love how bold and simple it is.

Side note, I am so in love with the clear alphabet stamps from Kelly Purkey’s new line! Already desperate for more of this size of alphabet.

6x8 Project Life | January (2)

Supplies Used: journaling cards (Citrus Twist Kits, One Little Bird Prix Fixe), patterned paper (Crate Paper Kiss Kiss 6×6 pad, Recollections), alphabet stamps (Clearly Kelly Outline letters), vellum title (Maggie Holmes Open Book vellum ephemera)

Make | 8×8 Layout – “On This Journey”

8x8 Layout - On This Journey - Blackbird Darlin

I think this is one of my favorite layouts I’ve ever done.

There really isn’t a whole lot to it, but I love every single element…the photo, the paper, the colors, the journaling behind it, and that chipboard girl is one of those, “I must save this until the perfect photo comes along for it” type of product.

And I’ll be damned, the perfect photo did come along!

It’s a little sappy, but I’m approaching the four year mark of doing long distance with Boyfriendman, so I think I have the right to be sappy sometimes ;)

6x8 Project Life | January

By the time this post goes up, I will be in England for a week and a half long trip with Boyfriendman, so postings will be pretty sparse for a bit. (Though I hope to pop in with some pictures at some point!) But seriously, SO EXCITED RIGHT NOW.

Anywho, nothing too exciting going on in this spread (and those pics are pretty terrible), but I still wanted them in my book anyway. I take so many random pictures outside my living room window, so they deserve a home too.

Though it’s amazing how much better they look when surrounded by pretty paper ;)

6x8 Project Life | January (2)

Supplies Used: patterned paper (Crate Paper), stickers (Maggie Holmes Open Book cardstock stickers and American Crafts DIY Shop glitter heart stickers), vellum phrase (Maggie Holmes Open Book vellum ephemera), phrase stamps (Citrus Twist Pocket Life Kits)
