I finished my planner!

At least, it’s finished for now.  I might end up designing some more pages later.  I emailed the girl I bought the original files from to see if she minds me sharing pics of my modified ones here on the blog.  Hopefully she gets back to me soon!  I did post a pic on twitter of the dividers that I made if anyone wants to go check that out.  🙂  I used paper from The Pier, the tab stickers from October Afternoon’s 9 to 5 collection, and then laminated them to make them sturdier.  I’m loving the result.

Project Life Week 35

Got another page done today!  This time I’m using the Winter Mini Theme and I love it!  It fact, I bought the physical product to use on my woefully neglected December Daily.  🙂

Week 35 A blogI’m not sure if I’ll make my goal of finishing 2013 by the end of March, but I’m getting close.

Week 35 B blog


Easter and Using up the Stash

Talk about some old paper.  I’m pretty sure I bought this when Kate was a baby and she’s 4 1/2 now.  It’s Basic Gray Lilykate.

egg huntIt felt good to be using up some of my older paper!  I’m trying not to buy anything for a while and just “shop my stash.”  I’m also trying to purge as a go, so if I find something I know I won’t use, I’m pitching it.

This page came together pretty easily.  I just inked the edges, added a few tags, and some washi tape.  I colored the wood veneer butterflies with some colored pencils.  Oh, and can I just say that I love the chunky glitter thickers?  Because I totally do.  🙂


Project Life Week 32

I really want to finish 2013 before the end of March.  Can it be done?  Maybe!  I’ve done 5 layouts in the last week, so there’s certainly hope.  🙂

Week 32 A blogSince I’m in major catch up mode, I’m keeping them even more simple than usual.  I’m trying to get a full time teaching job next year (fingers crossed!) and I would love to be as caught up as possible since I know that my crafting time will be much more limited.  🙂  I can always go back and fancy these up if I decide I want to later before I print them, but at least this way I have the bones of the layouts done.

Oh, and if you do Project Life digitally, I just scored the Cherry Edition for free!  If you’ve been considering making the switch to digital, or just starting the project in the first place, check it out!


Project Life Week 29

I bought a new theme kit!  The Becky Higgins Halloween one.  Nothing like some new product to motivate me.  🙂

Week 29 A blogWhy yes, that is a picture of my groceries.  I love to throw a bit of complete randomness into Project Life.  🙂

Project Life Week 28

Now that I can breath again, I’m rediscovering my mojo!  I cranked out this Project Life layout yesterday.

Week 28 A blogMost of these are B photos that wouldn’t normally make the cut, but I’m trying to at least somewhat limit my duplicates between Project Life and October Daily.  🙂

Week 28 B blogStill totally loving the Becky Higgins “Girl” mini kit.  🙂
