Make | 6×8 Project Life – January

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 ;)

Make | 6×8 Project Life – January

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)

Make | Card – “Hey There, Handsome”

Card | Hey, There Handsome

I had such good intentions to make stuff this week. But I have been doing everything BUT being creative lately, AGH! I made myself sit down yesterday with a very limited selection of product (and a very limited amount of time), and made this crazy simple card.

Three different pieces of 6×6 paper, and a little embellishment, and that’s it!

Oh, and yes, I purposely tried to make something not pink and girly for once.

Card - Hey There Handsome

Supplies Used: patterned paper (Crate Paper Craft Market 6×6 pad), sentiment (cut from Heidi Swapp September Skies 6×6 paper), chipboard hearts (Studio Calico)

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 Layout | Photobooth 2

Supplies Used: patterned paper (cut from Maggie Holmes Open Book 12×12 paper), letter stickers (Maggie Holmes Open Book cardstock stickers), phrase stamps (Dear Lizzy, Amy Tangerine, and Studio Calico)
