Make | 6×8 Project Life – January

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?

Make | 6×8 Project Life – June

6x8 Project Life | June | Blackbird Darlin

For some crazy reason, I had it in my brain that I was going to post my pocket pages here in chronological order…but I don’t always finish a spread before moving on to a different one, so in some cases, it could be a million years before I have another spread go up.

And seriously, why would it bother you guys if they’re not posted in order? I don’t know. Again, crazy.

So here’s a spread that I finished! From June!

But can we talk about that blue floral paper? I am madly in love with it and want to use it in everything.

Supplies Used: floral paper (Crate Paper Open Road 6×6 pad), gold polka dot paper (My Mind’s Eye Nob Hill Stache), woodgrain paper (?), “gorgeous” sticker (Maggie Holmes Styleboard Label Words), word stamps, gold arrow, and heart wood veneer (Citrus Twist Pocket Life Kits), banner die (Silhouette Trendy Shapes)

Make | Card – “You’re #1 In My Book”

Card | You're #1 In My Book | Blackbird Darlin

AW YIPES, I’ve been gone awhile, huh?! I mistakenly thought that I would blog while on the go during some recent back-to-back trips, but that obviously didn’t happen. Oof.

But here I am, so off we go then!

I have stacks of books in several areas in my apartment, so this Silhouette shape was a must-have for me. Since I’m still a bit of a newb with using my Cameo, I totally forgot to write down how big I made this die-cut as a reference for you guys – this is a standard 4.25×5.5 card though, so it’s somewhere in those dimensions at least!

If I’m using multiple papers for one die cut, I like using the Ungroup feature in the Silhouette software so that I can have it cut out pieces of the die I want to cut instead of the entire thing each time. It was still a little bit too plain though, so I drew around the edges of the book pages and teacup with a pen, and added steam coming from the cup just for funsies.

Yay to being back home with my stacks of books…and craft supplies! Naturally.
