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

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)

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!
