Project Life 2014 – Week 2

comments 4

DSC_0004Hi and welcome to my week 2. I continued with my Midnight kit this week picking on my favourite colour Orange. Aaaah. I feel at home with Orange. I also went a little stamp happy and accented the orange with various Studio Calico stamps I have collected in the last 12 months or so. The little plant and “Hello Magic” being one of the sets.  Now a little on my stamping. I am no expert. I pluck them straight out of the pack, onto an acrylic block and off I go. I don’t bother with priming or prepping the stamp in any way just stamp. Yup, that’s as complicated as it gets with me. DSC_0008This is the left side of the layout. So a point to note. See the journalling , printed kinda crooked on the third 3×4 card in? Yeah it’s crooked AND even more so, I am leaving it that way. REALLY? … Really. Why? Because I hate to waste the core cards. Even tho there are so many I hate the though of wasting them. DSC_0017Worse still, I had already stamped on the card too with the “quality time together”…. I thought of redoing it but I didn’t. The story is there and that’s all that matters right?DSC_0012Here is the right side.  No crooked printing here but a  lot of journalling. 🙂 DSC_0013Some more stamping too. “Makes me smile” and “This is us” plus  “Here and now” I just repeated across the 6×4 card. It’s quite small and very simple but I like it that way. DSC_0016Really love this sweet little pic of the Mackenzie and her friend Kelsi giving each other a boost to make it up the pole. They took turns and called me over to see once one made it to the top. Love moments like these. The writing over the top is an Ali Edwards brush that I dropped the opacity of a fair way to make it loo transparent. Week2_2014Finally here is the full layout all in one. Nothing particularly new and exciting here on this layout but clean and done.

On a side note at the writing of this post I am up to date with 2014 and catching up 2013 (6 weeks to go). I have been away on a holiday of which I plan to also do a Mini album which I will share as I progress it.

Thanks For Dropping In



  1. another clean and eye-catching layout. Would you be so kind as to share how you do the rounded corner clipping mask for your photos? Possibly even a file for the masks? I’d be ever so grateful. I still can’t quite get my head around it in PSE

  2. I really look forward to your PL blog pages every week. Just simple photos and stories but a really cohesive look.

    I’d love to hear what your “process” is you described in Polka Dot Creative story I think it would be another time saver if you had a basic ‘process’ you follow. Please share

  3. Great everyday story Petra, also sounds like a great weekend!

    Can you tell me where you bought Nitro car? My son is looking for one too. Thanks
