Hi there and thank you for coming to visit my week 34. Still using Jade and this week concentrating on the black & white coloured cards in the kit. You will notice that I have again incorporated a flip pocket and some more cuts form m CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge. Also a personal story from our lives that I have decided to share just to show you that sometimes the small things really are the big things and are worth documenting where Project Life is the perfect way to capture it. So why don’t I stop talking about it and show you?.. Let’s do this.
Of course we start on the Left hand side of the layout. Lots of journalling on this page as well as a very simple filler card. I stamped with gold in on this weeks layout and as nice as it looks in real life the gold just did not come out on the photo of the pages .Guess you’ll have to come visit me to have a closer look 😉
This border was cut using my Cricut Artbooking Cartridge and I just added a few gold dots which you will see scattered throughout this layout. I love this little moment of Calvin with our dog Abbey. This is not an unusual sight because he really does love her. She’s not an energetic “chase the ball” type dog but a true to form lap dog who enjoys sitting on his lap and having a cuddle.
Here is a little filler card. Ok there is pretty much nooo effort here. The word “love” cutout and a few foam dots to raise it a bit. That’s it.
So here I am sharing something a bit personal. A little story of a few moments on what could be any old Saturday around here but, this is a story I don’t ever want to forget. I reflect on it a little teary for a number of reasons (and yes I see the extra “they”). It’s personal to me because it admits that not every moment is a wonderful one especially when it comes to me specifically. But that’s life and I’m not trying to pretend that it’s all sunshine and lollypops around here.
Here is the right hand side. More gold in, more Gold dots and yes another Artbooking cut and a flapper.
Here is an Artbooking cut I made accented with gold stamping sitting across a photo. This was a fairly poor photo and I could not resize it any more without it getting totally lost so I just decorated the other half of the 6×4 pocket with the cutout. Do I love it? Not sure but, it’s done.
This is the flipper I added. All three kids were dressed up on this day and I didn’t want to miss out including a photo of any one of them. For me a flip pocket was the best way without having to include an insert. I used a CTMH 4×6 pocket which just sticks on.
Finally the whole layout as it sits in my album.
Don’t forget there is a Giveaway for a Kraft Core kit on last weeks post HERE. There are still a few days before I draw a winner so be sure to pop over and leave a omment for your chance to win!
