Project 52 ~ Week #34 to #36

Hey there friends!  I'm back with a few more Project 52 pages for the last three weeks. My schedule seems to be either completely crazy or absolutely nothing to do... I really can't get used to that.

For Week #34, I used the Rad Kit in the Project Life App.

For week #35, I used the Wander kit and the Project 12 - September Kit

For Week #36, I used the Project 12 - September kit with overlays from Just Add Color.

Have a Fantastic Day!

Marching Band ~ More Pocket Pages!

Happy Friday!  I was looking through my blog the other day and noticed this post in my drafts folder & realized I never finished up posting my son's band pages from Junior year. And... I still have all of Senior year to share as well. I guess I should get busy!

For these pages, I used an assortment of supplies from various kits I had on hand ~ Ali Edwards story kits, Hip Kit Club, Elle's Studio, and Felicity Jane. 

Have a Great Weekend!

Taylored Expressions 10th Birthday Mega Party!

Back in 2014, I was asked to join the Taylored Expressions Bakers Dozen Team and I had the pleasure of working on that team for 3 years.  Today I am thrilled to be part of the Designer Reunion 10th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop along with over 40 other past & present designers.  WOW ~ that's a lot of awesomeness right there! You can find a complete list of the designers over on the Taylored Expressions Blog! Taylor has tons of fun things in store for you this week, so make sure you check out all the details.

This week Taylored Expressions is releasing lots of fun new products and you can find them all in the store under the NEW Category. However, TE also has tons of wonderful previously released products, and for my birthday card today, I used the Tropical Trio Stamp & Die Combo set. I also used some of the beautiful new cardstock colors ~ Blue Raspberry, Pineapple, and Lime Zest. {I have a full list of supplies with links listed below}

One Little Word ~ July & August Prompts

Hello My Friends! 

Today I'm sharing my One Little Word Prompts for July & August. These prompts were challenging because I've had some struggles with my journey this year. It's been such a big year of change for our family & even though you know it's coming, it's still hard. I've included a lot of "this is where my heart is" stuff in these pages.

Have a Wonderful Day!

One Little Word ~ April, May & June

Hello There!

I looked at my One Little Word label of my blog and realized I hadn't posted any pages since my March prompt. I am so happy with how this album is coming out this year. I am being very intentional about sticking with the same colors and doing minimal pages for each month.

For April, the prompt was the Post-It challenge. Putting questions on post-it notes and placing them where you will see them each day. I transferred my questions to these fun stitched circles and added my answers on the Reflections card.

During the month of May, we were prompted to take 8 photos from the month and document the moments. It was a great month for that since both kids were graduating and moving on to their summer adventures. There were lots of activities going on!

For the month of June, the prompt was all about documenting how the project is progressing with our word so far this year. June was a hard month for me with lots of ups and downs... so my thoughts and reflections were all based on those feelings. It is what it is... sometimes it just isn't fun & that's what this project is all about.

Have a Wonderful Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #31 to #33

Hello Friends!  Sorry I've been hit and miss with blog posts, but it's been a very odd summer and having any sort of routine has been nearly impossible. Some weeks I have nothing to do and others I can hardly keep up.

Today I'm sharing 3 more pages from my Project 52 album.  For this first page I used the following Project Life App Kits - June, July and August Project 12.

Project Life App Kits - August Project 12 with overlays from Just Add Color, Wish Big & February Project 12.

Have a Great Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #29 & #30

Hello Friends!

I wanted to take a few minutes and post a few more Project 52 pages. It is seriously the only crafting I've done in months... but not for lack of wanting. I'll have time & the desire to get back into my craft room at some point, but for right now, I'm soaking up as much family time as possible before Matt goes to college later this month and Megan moves (unknown date as of right now).

Cards - Bright & Bold Edition
Overlays - Project 52 2016 Edition & Just Add Color

Cards - Dear Lizzy Daydreamer
Overlays - Explorer

Project 52 ~ Week #26 to #28

It's been a CRAZY BUSY three weeks around our house!  The summer has turned out much different then we originally planned, but I have no complaints. Here are my Project 52 pages for the last fun-filled weeks... they included some really hot weather, jazz fest, an engagement & surprise party, wedding planning, and wedding dress shopping!

Project 52 ~ Week #25

Hello Friends!  Today I'm sharing my Week #25 page using the Project Life App. For this page, I used the Currently Kit in the App and added text to the cards using the new Free Form Text (FFT) feature. You get so much more out of the App now that this feature is now available.  On the title card, I added the "Week #25" to the sheet of paper in the typewriter using FFT. Also, for the Notes from Today & On the Bright Side cards, all of the text was added using FFT.  How awesome is that???

Have a Fantastic Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #21, #22, #23

Hello Friends!  I've been absent for several weeks & when you have a peek at the photos below, I'm sure you'll understand why... senior year, 2 graduations, lots of school year-end activities!  

Thank goodness for the Project Life App so I can keep up with my one page per week!  I used several of the Project 12 monthly kits & overlays (mostly May & June) for the pages below.

Now that graduation, band and the parties are finished, I'm really going to try and get some physical pages done as well. Time to start a new project!

Have a Wonderful Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #20

Hi There Friends! Well this end of the school year stuff is so crazy busy, but thanks to the App, I am staying caught up!  I used the Project 12 - May Kit and a few overlays for my page. I also used the collage feature of the App for the Mother's Day card and the Jazz Cafe yearly comparison card in the lower right corner. 

I can't wait for week 25 or 26 so I can order some pages (I usually print at the half-way point of the year). 

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

Project 52 ~ Week #17, #18, and #19

Hello Friends!  Life is so busy right now, but I wanted to pop in and share my Project 52 pages for the last 3 weeks. I really intended to share them before now, but I was kind of waiting for Free Form Text to arrive on the Android version of the Project Life App to finish up these pages. They did an App update yesterday so now I have it!  WOOHOO!

For my week #17 page, I used the Project 52 Fresh Edition.

 Week #18 - Maggie Holmes Maggie Holmes Style Board Mini Kit

Week #19 - Shine Bright Value Kit

Have a Fantastic Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #16

Hello Friends!  I know I've been MIA lately, but life is soooooo busy right now. Here's a peek into why... two kids graduating & tons of senior year-end activities. So today I'm finally posting my Week #16 page. I went super quick and easy so I could just get things documented... which is really the most important thing right now!   For this page, I used the Moments Like These kit in the Project Life App.

Have A Great Weekend!
