Different Project Life page protectors layouts- Design R

I've been a fan of design A page protectors in most of my albums over the years, but I do have a variety pack lurking and when I decided that this would be my last year of 12 x 12 I decided to go for it and use them up!
Design R was my first, vertical 6 x 4s and three 4x4s down the centre.
I don't take many vertical photo's I found out, I take mostly square ones so the 6 x 4s had to be project life cards. The top left I printed the wrong week on the gold side so I printed the right week digital stamp from One Little Bird on another card and then trimmed it and stitched it over the top. I did not waste the other part card I mounted it on another white card and then used washi tape to join the two together and add extra detail. 

I placed another design R opposite it. This time I trimmed some square photos to vertical 6x4s in Photoshop, this can work very well with scenes.
This is what I did on the reverse side. I used some collage prints in the vertical 6 x 4s on the left including some journaling. On the right I mounted a 4x4 on a 6x4 card and it left room for journaling, which continued into the lower box beneath.. TFlx

Project Life.... let's try....

something to switch up the layouts each week, this week I tried 
 stitching alphas on project life cards....
 using the photo fuse tool on a 12 x 12 pocket page...
and making a waterfall pocket with the photo fuse tool.

Happy 4th of July!

But a day late! I made this to celebrate and then forgot to post it on the right day! Stamped the background to look like the American flag, very pertinent for this photo of DS2 when he played JP Morgan in a recent musical at dance school.
This was another project inspired by the Make It Big class over at SC. The other layout I made for class this week was this one using the cut file given.
In celebration of Wimbledon week, I have also been enjoying Strawberries and cream!! TFLx

Making it Big!

I am really enjoying the Make It Big Class over at Studio Calico with Paige Evans, I love her work. here are three layouts I have made for the class.
 This one using the Silhouette file from the class.
 This one I printed the photo on vellum.
 This one with hand cut letters.
This one I was inspired to make to use the large chipboard title from a Project Life kit I had not used up.
Can I just say they are my new fave layouts!! TFLx

It's been a while.....

 ...but I have caught up a lot of my Project Life photographing! I tend to share it as I go along on Instagram so if you want to see it "as it happens" follow cannycrafter over there!
 I did "a day in the life" as a doodle because I was experimenting with the latest craze!
Next time I will use a waterproof pen and then I can watercolour it!
 This was my birthday week so I stitched a 12 x12 page protector into a 12 x 6 pocket for the doodle and a 6x6 pocket for some birthday cards I wanted to keep.
All these spreads are made with the Studio Calico Project Life kit.
 Sometimes I buy their extra sets of cards with a theme, this black and silver fairytale castle card was great for a Disney audition!
I have not included as much memorabilia in 2015 but this week had some local news about the Tour De Yorkshire.
 Hidden journaling on the back of some cards like the Eiffel Tower here.
Here is my very photo light week! Week 16 when we were busy decorating! Just a 6x12 page. TFLx

Planner update Thursday

Orange is the colour I went with this week and combined it with pink! Moe hidden journaling under a printable from a set I printed out from Studio calico at A5 size. 
I had fallen behind with my planner but have caught up a bit now. Even if I only fill in the written journaling, because I archive my pictures in date order it gives me back up from my PC!
Not sure why I am having so little time to craft at the moment, hoping it is  passing phase! Need to work out a system to archive my completed months as my Heidi Swap memory file binder is at full stretch!
