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 ;)

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)

I don’t know about you guys, but when the Pantone Color of the Year was announced for 2015, it was met with a “blegh” in my brain. A great lipstick color maybe, but otherwise…kinda meh. (To me anyway) So when I came across this page in a magazine, I thought it would be a fun addition to my book, but definitely with a note about it.

Thus, the “not so great” stamp on the bottom.

I ♥ phrase stamps.

Make | 6×8 Layout – Photobooth

6x8 Layout | Photobooth

I busted this layout out almost as soon as I got home from this trip…boyfriendman and I took these at a photobooth in Nashville (located in the Third Man Records shop), and I just love it. Even though I couldn’t figure out where the hell to look at the camera.

I really wanted to add a title on this, but nothing was working directly on the patterned paper, so I lined alphabet stickers along the side of the photo instead. I also stamped a bunch of phrases on the pink cardstock strip with a couple different roller phrase stamps. So easy to put together! I’ve never made a 6×8 layout before, but this size worked perfectly for this, and I might experiment with it more in the future.

I’m really stoked that I have been working on these photos so soon, I usually let trip stuff sit for a thousand years because it’s so overwhelming!

6x8 Project Life - January

I’m back in Seattle, with a whole lot to get done before boyfriendman and I head off to England in a few weeks. More adventures, YAY!

I spent the weekend furiously printing up pics and prepping my Project Life album with the stuff from our recent trip to Missouri/Tennessee/Mississippi. So excited to be with my pretty papers and scrapping again. (Hopefully I’ll get some of that up soon)

6x8 Project Life - January (2nd spread)

In the meantime, here’s a two-parter spread from January. Once again, I cut down a page protector to add in between this spread to make more room for photos and journaling….I love this technique, but it’s why I’m beyond excited for those new Simple Stories 4×6 protectors to come out.


It’s been super gorgeous in Seattle, hope the rest of the country gets thawed out soon! (It snowed while visiting my family in Mississippi, just craziness everywhere)

6x8 Project Life | January

Heyooooo! It’s the first spread of my 2015 album! I still have a crap-ton of 2014 to finish, but I’ve got a pretty good start on January stuff, so thought I’d start posting it.

Since I used an 8×8 layout for the title page of this album (shown in this post), I thought it would be fun to cut a giant clock image from my Cameo to put on the other side. Final countdown and all that. And yes, I screwed up centering it on the paper…DOH!

I had a couple other photos I wanted to stick in this spread, so I cut out a 4×6 pocket (from a 6×8 page) to put in front of the full page to give me more room to work with. It also contains the journaling, so this isn’t just a “here’s a photo figure out what we did” kind of page.

On a final note, that quote sticker has been in my stash since 2002. I know this because the price tag was dated. Better late than never, right?

6x8 Project Life | January (2)

Supplies Used: clock die cut (Silhouette Design Store), patterned paper (Studio Calico and Crate Paper Kiss Kiss 6×6 pad), quote (Wordsworth)
