project life update: finishing up february

hiya!

it was a project life weekend at my house! and woohoo…i’m done with february!

my plan is to give some details on each page but since it’s a lot of pages, we’ll see what happens toward the end.

so, here we go!

this was my first attempt at the take 12. made it simple by only embellishing with a title card and the times on each page.

washi tape + thickers.

lots of washi tape + custom embellishments.

Untitled

clementine + washi tape + cutouts and stickers from my stash.

clementine cardstock + washi tape + a custom cutout from my girl kristy

a different design layout and i liked it!

using tons of new stuff! i found 6×6 pads of cardstock and lots of 12×12 sheets with 3×4 cutouts. perfect for project life!

loving the randomness and how the whole page DOESN’T have to match exactly.

this page proves that it doesn’t have to take alot of effort to scrapbook this way. it can be so simple!

loving this layout…it’s a special one too.

i couldn’t get by without these lilybee alpha stickers. they are perfect anywhere!

Untitled

again with the simplicity. i dolled up one 3×4 and added a piece of cardstock for color to one picture. boom! done!

but then, when i’ve got a million things to share in one week, i can go a little nuts.

so much is happening here and yet it feels so put together. loving each little section.

Untitled

Untitled

i figured out how to print on any 3×4 pieces. it’s so simple…wondering if i should do a tutorial.

Untitled

added a jounaling card + two stickers + a strip of cardstock + a lyric from the eagles. done!

Untitled

started to dip into dear lizzy’s neopolitan line on this one. swoon.

Untitled

but really used her stuff on this two pager. since i didn’t have any small pics to fill the 3×4 slots, i custom made all the cards by mixing different products together. i love when it all works out!

so that’s it. that’s february!

my kitchen table is now clean and tidy and all my supplies are stashed away until the next time i can scrap. kind of really excited to share my newest crafty thing with you guys…pssssttt…come closer….it’s the coolest and cheapest way to organize aaaaalllllll your project life stuff!

      miss kristy, the stickers are THE BEST for the small project life stuff. they are a narrow font so they work great! and no, the layout with the strip on the side is a different maker.they are on amazon, we r memory makers and they came in a multi-layout pack i found. hoping to see some of your recent stuff…im feindin’ for some kristy layouts!

      Allie my dear, scrapbooking is soooooooo easy these days. Gone are the days of complicated stencils and oodles of layouts to create. Just getting your story told is the most important thing!

    What fun to see these pages, you are so creative and fun with your pages. I love love the valentine spread, how sweet of your boys. The one with your new truck is AWESOME!! how sweet and dear is the one of your grandma, love that. Nice job on all these spreads, I’m thinking it had to take you like 5 hours though, all that cutting and gluing and fitting and writing. Most weeks all I can do is spend one hour Sunday night and decide on photos, crop if needed and do the jouranling and say DONE!! Hoping one day to add some more color to mine. You should be proud and happy to be catching up.

      I do spend a lot of time on my PL. most times I will scrap for several evenings in a row so I can just keep my stuff out. I feel like I can get more done in big chunks versus little moments here and there…it’s just how it works out with my right now life. πŸ™‚ I think I get an entire spread done in an hour tho…not bad right?
