2015 project life weeks 30-32

Happy Monday! I am excited to share my most recent project life spreads! I am finally starting to feel like getting caught up is coming near.


This week was fun to make because I used exclusively the December Daily digital products over at Ali Edwards.  These products are so versatile that they can be used for so much more than just christmas projects.

products used: December Daily cards and Paper: Main Kit by Ali Edwards, December Daily Digital Stamp: Good Cheer by Kelly Purkey, December Daily Mini Kit Paper and Cards by Kelly Purkey, For the ‘Thank you for the awesome memories’ word art I used December Boxes No. 2 and I swapped out the word December on one of the boxes for the word awesome so that it would fit for what I wanted to use it for. I also used these photo templates by Paislee Press: 3×4 photo templates and 3×4 photo templates no. 2.  Project life templates by Cathy Zielske


For this week’s spread I used goodies from One Little Bird. This weeks spread was all about our move from Texas to Germany. It was so fun to scrap!

2015 Project Life week 5

I loved working with a new collection from Digital Designs Essentials for this weeks spread. I just loved the bright colors! I didn’t have a ton of pictures to work with this week but there were so many goodies in that kit that I was actually glad for more open space to use them.

Us – hybrid layout

Hello! This has been a crazy week! I have been super busy trying to plan a Minecraft birthday party for my son. I have no idea why I can’t walk into my local party story and buy Minecraft party decorations considering every other kid I know plays the game. But alas, I cannot so I have been making it all from scratch. But I did take some time yesterday and work on a hybrid page using a new template from Paislee Press. If you would like more information on how to use a digital template to create hybrid layouts you can check out this article here.


And the best part is that the template available for free through the end of the month! All you have to do to get it is go on over to today’s challenge on the month of challenges forum over a The Lilypad and download it! I also used the Memory Hearts from Ali Edwards to create a patterned paper for the top part of my layout. The other patterned papers came from the On My Desk collection by Paislee Press.

Big news!

That’s right! I am happy to announce that I am joining the digital creative team for the fabulous Ali Edwards! I cannot wait to get started! Be sure to bookmark this blog as I will be sharing all of my layouts and projects that I create on here.

Now let’s get scrapping!

2014 Project Life Title Page

It’s the beginning of a new year and that means it’s time to start a new project life album. I have to admit I was not successfull at keeping up with last years album but I am not going to let that deter me from giving it a go this year. I decided to stick with a 12×12 format instead of switching to a 6×8 becuase I generally have a lot of pictures and I was afraid I wouldn’t have enough space in an smaller album. I really loved using some printable cards from paislee press on this title page. The amazing year card is from the brightside journal card pack and the ready for new adventures card is from presscards no. 31.


I am super excited because I used a gift card that I received this christmas to get myself a sewing maching. I used it to sew down the vellum circles with our ages. I am loving it already and hope to use it a lot on my project life spreads.


Thanks for looking!
