Project Life | New Year

 This week | We celebrated the New Year and my parents went back home to PA.  We bought a new car in anticipation of having three car seats in the back at once very soon.  We also just hung out at home and wen to a few outings like yoga and the museum.  A pretty chill week.  Most of these photos all of the photos were taken with my iPhone.  I edited most of them with the VSCOcam app.  I love that thing.  Instagram is too dark for me, I just love the richness this app seems to give my photos.  I also used my iPhone to photograph my spread this week.  A little grainier than usual, but I think it looks similar once I resize it for the web and all.  What do you think? Can you notice a difference?

 First Side | Using lots of the my Studio Calico kit cards here. Lots of white space.  Extra large white borders around my photos because I didn't crop them to 4x6 beforehand and just used the shrink to fit setting on my printer.  Lovely white border and a little breathing space on the layout.  The big XO is some fun new word art from Kal Barteski and Amy Tan.  I have too many regular thickers anyway so this was a fun product to play with. 

This card from SC controversially said '2013' on one side.  I covered it up with a little wood veneer heart.  No way am I going to back to 2013 now.  lol.   Minimal stamping on these pages.  Tried to keep it simple with black ink too.

I used a post it from the new Basic Grey sticky pad.  Love them for journaling spots and their ease of use.

Second side |  More Studio Calico cards, mostly the Copper Mountain kit.  I tried to get creative by cutting the love this card in half and putting my photo in the middle.  Something different anyway I suppose.

I really adore the alpha rubons in the kit.  They are bold and fun.  The shipping tag is just from the office supply section, stapled on for good measure.  

 I tried to get a little extra creative here as well.  First I stitched along the stripes of this card, then cut them apart and glued them back on another neutral journaling card.  The cut file is from Shanna Noel.  I thought the colorful background would let the white stand out.  Love the texture it adds to my spread and making one 'fancy' card really wasn't all that hard for the week.

You can see all of my Project Life pages here.  This is my third year of doing Project Life and I love this method of memory keeping for our family.  The PL kits I am using generally are the Studio Calico kit, and Midnight kit, with multi-pack page protectors.  I am linked up with the Mom Creative this week.

Now it is your turn!  Add your link back to your Project Life pages here and try to visit and leave comments for each other as well.  Grab a button if you'd like too!  Thanks to everyone who linked up last week!


  1. More great PL pages. Love the makes my heart happy cut out!

  2. Wow! I used to do a lot of scrapbooking before jewelry designing came over in my life. I don't like instagram much, but I've begun enjoying taking pictures on my iPhone. I use picsart to make my pictures when I have to share. But you got some great captions. Very interesting!

  3. Hey, when did you switch to the iPhone from Android? Thinking of you!

    1. I got one a couple of weeks ago when my upgrade was due. The screen on my droid had been cracked all summer anyway and I am so much happier with the camera now.

  4. Love your pages! Such bright colors and I love the texture with the stitching!

  5. Beautiful work, I just love the colours.

  6. Great pages, love how you cut apart a couple of the SC cards, neat effect!

  7. I like your PL pages a lot. So many happy colours. And I love to see how you use the Studio Calico cards (I received PL kits from SC as well). :)

  8. Always loving seeing your pages. I love the extra wide white borders on the photos. So jealous of your cutting ability! My Silhouette and I don't get along and it makes me sad! lol.
