Week 30

comments 15

DSC_0387Hi and welcome to my week 30. No I’m not quite up to date with my weekly layouts but I am moving forward and have finally come to terms that it’s not a race it’s a journey and I plan to really enjoy it. So here we go with week 30 and onwards with the Becky Higgins Jade core kit.

DSC_0374Here is the left side to start with. There are some gorgeous shades of blue in this kit and I love using them because they make creating layouts so very easy. For my title card this week I played with some Heidi Swapp Colorshine in Teal and a Studio Calico stencil. Just a quick note that I have only recently been introduced to Colorshine (Thanks Sandra from @thecraftybunch) and I am in love. The colour and shimmer to it is just lovely and I thought the Teal colour went really well with the spots on the core kit card.

I kept the “day by Day” filler card on this page totally untouched and just plucked it straight out of the kit and into the album. Tis is unusual for me but this time I was happy with it as it was.

DSC_0375Right here is the Right (and more involved) side. This side includes a flip pocket as well a large landscape photo across the top .

DSC_0384This long photo was taken by my hubby (thank you sweetheart) and I think it’s gorgeous. He has a way of capturing really dreamy photos even when motion is involved. It just needed to be big.

DSC_0382The flip pocket is right here again with a co-ordinating tab all flipped up. It was all about Mackenzie’s first school sports day. I included a 3×4 journal card and attached it to the photo with a few stitches just for a bit of fun. The bottom half holds all the stickers she proudly earned on the day as well as the main ribbon for participation.

DSC_0383I find often these little things go missing and I forget to add them into my albums. Not this time šŸ™‚

DSC_0397Here is a bit of a sideways view of of the weekly layout just for completeness.

I’ll really try not to be so long between posts next time.

Thanks for Dropping In

  3. i think those colours really do suit your style. your work is amazing. and mackenzie is just the cutest little thing.

  4. Hi Michelle,The Jade kit colours are definitely growing on me. The more I work with them the more comfortable I am and point and case why it is great to just stick with a kit (like you do) and really get to know it. Thank you for your gorgeous comment. x

  5. Petra, I love seeing your pages – they remind me how much I love Project Life (though I am sadly months behind and must, must, MUST get back into it). Love your large photo AND that quote; also love the idea of cross-stitching two 3×4 cards together. Thanks for the inspiration

    • Aaaw thanks Leanne that is the sweetest thing to say. x
      No need to fret about being behind. A little at a time and you’ll get there. Just make sure you enjoy the journey and that you don’t make it a chore.

      Thanks for always taking the time to Drop in and elave a comment.

    • Hi Leanne,
      Thank you for coming along to my page. I love to add a bit of stitching now and then it just adds a bit of fun without getting too bumpy.
      Thanks For Dropping In

      • I have only just started doing PL and think I will have to add some stitching to my next page. THanks for the inspiration!

        • That’s awesome. It is super easy and fun to do!
