Repost Day by Day – Project Life Week 2 And A Freebie

Original date: 1.21.14

I’ve got three pages for week 2.  The family had a lot going on and I also wanted to devote one page just for my daughter’s dance showcase.

For the words, “Our Everyday,” (third photo up) I used the Silhouette to cut it out on paper.  You can see in the photo below how parts of the sheet I used hangs off the with space.  That’s totally okay.  I used pink paper to cut on but then realized that the pink paper wasn’t dark enough so afterward I used a dark ink stamp over the words to get the exact color I wanted.  I was surprised to find that I liked the look it gave.



It’s kind of funny but I like watching this machine cut.  It’s really cool.

My daughter loves the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth.  I read it first and then recommended it to her.  I think she loves it more than I do!  I made this journal card to use in my layout and thought I should share it just in case anyone is a big fan too.


Repost Happy New Year!

Original date: 1.01.13

Hope you had a great new year’s eve.  I always tend to get tired out just before the ball drop but this year, I was overwhelmed with emotions.  I got a bit teary-eyed.  Maybe it’s because things are just moving by too quickly.  I can’t believe it’s really 2013.

So, what have you planned for resolutions this year?  Here is what I had my family do.  We wrote out our resolutions on 4×6 journal cards I made.  I will be putting these in my Project Life binder with photos we took yesterday.

If you’d like to use these journal cards to jot down your resolutions, you can download them below.


Have a wonderful new year!

Repost Friday Freebie: Embrace Dodge and Burn

Original date: 4.20.12

Here is today’s freebie.  This set finishes up my first set of the design classes I’ve been taking at Hummie’s World.  It has been a great experience!  Even though everything is being taught in Photoshop Elements, I’ve been practicing the techniques and designing in Photoshop CS4.  Next week I should be starting on set two.

I am also in the process of working on my next kit to sell in my shop so stay tuned!  You can always follow me by e-mail anytime by typing in your e-mail and submitting on the right.

This set includes: 3 Papers, 3 – 4×6 Journal Cards, and 1 PDF file of the journal cards for easy printing.

I really enjoyed making the journal cards, especially the one with the dog and dog prints.  I don’t have a dog but I think it’s just so adorable!
This weekend, I’m seriously going to catch up on my Project Life.  Both the binders and the digital version on Shutterfly.
Thanks for downloading and enjoy the weekend!

Repost – Friday Freebie: Tabs and Journal Cards

Original date: 3.30.2012

I skipped last weeks Friday Freebie because I had spent time on creating a memorable gift for my aunt and her husband who recently celebrated their 40th anniversary and wasn’t able to get a freebie in.  I am late getting today’s Friday Freebie out but I’m really excited to share what I have.

First, there are these tabs I made using papers and elements from the Embrace kit pieces.


Then, I have these journal cards that can be used for digi-scrapping or can be printed and used for paper scrapping.  I am using them for my Project Life.
I’ve included, in the download, PDF files for both the 3×4 and 4×6 journal cards so that it is easier to print without having to create the files yourself.  Of course, you can always just print the individual cards too.
I’ve just started both Project Life and Digital Project Life and wanted to create my own journal cards to write on.  You can read more about how and why I got started on both on my personal blog: My Project Life & Project Life Digital.
Here are examples of what I’ve done with the 3×4 journal cards and the 4×6 journal cards.
Enjoy and have a great weekend!
