Project life week 41

I'm back today with a quick project life post.  I'll be going back in time in my album to show you past weeks. I'm not sure if I'll be able to post every single week but I'll do as many as I can before the year is over.  Here is week 41.

This week I used Sunshine edition core kit, Midnight edition, Studio Calico PL kit, some patterned paper by Allison Kreft and lots of bits and pieces from my stash.  Thank you for looking have a wonderful day!

Project Life week 42

Hi I'm back today with a project life post.  I am up to date and enjoying it!! This is still one of my favorite ways of documenting our everyday, I love this project. I haven't been posting lately so it will take me a while to get all my weeks posted here but I'll just go ahead and start with the most current week.  I recently ordered my first PL kit from Citrus Twist Kits and I was really happy with it.  I love that they include a 6x6 paper pad that coordinates really well with the rest of the kit and the cards are super cute! I also really liked the stamps that came in this months PL kit. This week was mostly done with products from the kit and I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

I really had fun with the title card this week.  I used a Sil cut by Two Peas that I had made previously and some embellishments from the CT kit.  Below are some of my favorite cards and pictures of the week.

Such a cute card from the kit, the perfect sentiment.  I just added some rub on sequins and stars that were also in the kit this month.

I  added the string that the kit comes wrapped in on this card to hand the little heart.

As I mentioned before most of this weeks spread was done with the CT PL kit, but I also used some things from my stash.  Some enamel dots, not sure of the brand since I got rid of the packaging, stamps from the Studio Calico kits, some washi tape that came in a SC kit, Smash tabs, some silhouette cuts and some american craft thickers by Amy Tangerine. 

I'm linking up with The Mom Creative today! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

December is near!

Hi!! I'm back! It's been a while but I've decided to jump right back in.  I can hardly believe how fast this year is going.  Before we know it December will be here.  How do you document December? Last year was my first failed attempt at doing a December Daily.  I didn't prepare ahead of time and ended up feeling pressured and getting stressed about the entire thing.  The stress over it was so much that I didn't even finish December in my Project life album.  This year I will try again and I'm determined not to fail!  I went ahead and preordered the Studio Calico December Daily kit and it arrived last week.

I must say, I am extremely happy with this kit! The album is beautiful!! And the kit is packed with yummy papers, cards and tons of embellishments!!! I'm really excited to dig in and start planning and arranging it! I also can't wait to see how Ali Edwards will be putting her pages together!  Her albums are always very inspiring!!  Since this year I don't want to stress over it and give up, I've decided that the best thing to do is get started on it.  I plan on working on it every chance I get, I definitely want to decide how and decorate the outside of the album and set up my cover page and perhaps set up papers in the order I'd like them to be in the album.  I've already  opened everything and started to get some ideas, keeping it simple will be key to getting it done.  

So how will you be documenting December? I'd love to see!!  If you are interested in December Daily by Studio Calico and Ali Edwards you can find it here and here .  I hope to be back on later this week with some of my Project Life spreads.  Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!!
