June Documented using Project Life by Stampin' Up!

Good morning!  I can't believe it's the last day at Founders Circle, did it ever go by fast.  I've decided today is my day to relax.  I'm going to do my make & takes, work on my Founders Circle PL album and just enjoy not having to do anything for anyone else!  I know that once I'm home, the insanity starts all over again.

Today I have part of my June PL pages to share with you.  The right page is one of the pages from the PLxSU variety pack and the right page is a 6x12 page. As you can see it's simple and I can say that June is documented!  What a great feeling.  This never would have happened without Project Life.  I am LOVING it.  I still have space available in my Monday evening class if you'd like to come learn more.  Just let me know.

Have a creative weekend!

Mingle All the Way Swap

Hello!  I am having such a great time in St. George that I completely lost track of the days and realized I didn't post anything yesterday or today!  I thought I'd pop in and share the card I made (113 of!) for the Founders Circle swap.    Last night we had a pajama party and swap - so fun!  I am coming home with tons of ideas to share with you!

I don't have much time, we are off to see the Wizard of Oz at Tuacahn Theatre tonight.  So looking forward to this.  I will share some photos with you soon or visit me on Facebook to check out a few that I've posted.

Have a creative day!

For All Things Meets Circle Card Thinlits

I'm part of a set sampler swap group.  Each month we pick a stamp set and each person is assigned a wow card, technique card, workshop card or case card to create and we send it our to each other.  Augusts set was For All Things - I love this set.  I'm assuming this is the Wow card - wait until you see inside.  I'm not sure who created it because there was no name on it:(  Take a peek...
Isn't it FABULOUS!  It's so fun to receive handmade cards in the mail each month!  I actually look forward to checking my mail now.  If the creator of this card reads my blog, please let me know who you are so I can give credit where it's due!

Have a creative day!

Santa Stache Tags

Good morning!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Ours was very full - Eathan's birthday party - a sleepover with six 11 year old boys and then paintball, finishing up my swaps for Founders Circle - huge relief now that they are done, my parents were over for dinner yesterday and then preparing for an event that I have later today.

Today I thought I'd share another project we made at our quarterly training.  This one designed by Lorna Raczinski using the Santa Stache stamp set.  This is a great set for coloring with blendabilities.

Sorry for the quick post but lots to do today!  It's the day we hand over our old house to the new owners!

Have a creative day!

August 2014 Project Life Layout

Good morning!  I'm excited to share with you the first few pages that I've documented for August using our Project Life by Stampin' Up! products.  I am sooo happy with the way they turned out and thanks to PLxSU, I can honestly say that our summer is almost fully documented!  All the photos are printed and tucked into pages.  There are just a couple pages that I need to go back to and add some PL cards, journaling and embellishments.  That is a record for me - it normally takes years!

After working with PL a little more over the summer I am hooked!  It can't get ANY easier for you to document your life.  Now we will have a record of what happened over the summer and actually be able to enjoy the photos we took!

I thought I'd share some of the things that I've noticed since I've started documenting using pocket pages:
  • I take more photos of the everyday things - not because I HAVE to but because I WANT to.  I want to remember all the little details of our lives.
  • I journal more!  This is big for me and I think the reason is because I'm doing it while the memories are fresh.  I'm telling the little stories - like a missing salt shaker!  Things that I never would of thought to include in a regular scrapbook album!
  • My family has become involved - even after such a short time.  They will comment - mom you should take a photo of this for Project Life.  And Marcel will snap a photo if I'm not around and he thinks I might want to include it in the album.
  • I'm not picky about the quality of photos.  I'm including everything.  Obviously I try to get the best possible picture but if it turns out a little blurry or out of focus, I still include it because it's about the memory.
  • I still include some traditional pages in my album.  I save those pages for my favorite photos.
  • I don't document the everyday like a lot of Project Lifers do - I document on a monthly basis and include a calendar of what we had going on.  It will remind us down the road what our lives were like.
  • One of the best things - it doesn't take a lot of time and it's something you can do in small chunks of time without having to haul out everything!!
As you can see in the photo above the calendar starts the month.  Then I just start adding photos to pockets and then add my cards and journaling.  It is so much fun and I look forward to doing it as often as I can.  Here's a closer look at the right page...
These photos were taken when my daughter and I went to Calgary for a beach volleyball tournament.  Not a huge number of photos were taken but a few that documented the fun we had over the weekend.  The filler cards from the Everyday Adventure card collection and accessory kit filled the rest of the pockets and gave me some embellishments.  It's as easy as that!

I have a Memory Keeping Made Easy class scheduled for Monday September 22nd if you want to come and give it a try!  This method of documenting life isn't just about the everyday - you can use it to document holidays, create an album of your childhood, to supplement traditional scrapbooking, so many things.  I will be covering all of them in class.  Here are the details...

Curvy Keepsake Pumpkin

Good morning!  A little bit of a later start today since I didn't have any kids here this morning.  I thought I'd share with you this adorable little pumpkin we created last week at our quarterly training event.  Isn't it adorable?  It would be an awesome addition to the thanksgiving table!  And so easy to make.  The curvy keepsake box die does all the work - cuts and scores so that all you need to do is stamp and assemble.  If you are mass producing these, the only suggestion I would make is to use the Autumn Accents die (127812) for the leaves instead of stamping and hand cutting each of the leaves that are shown in the sample.  Huge time saver!

Have a creative day!
