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!

Thursday's planner update - two pages

Thinking pink and orange this week in my planner! Lots of small scale printables and some alpha quotes to keep me motivated.
This was last week, I kept it ultra simple as I was playing catch up with the Easter holiday and family commitments around here, and trying to decorate! Washi tape to the rescue! I am finding that I am using up all my stash that I hadn't used before which is a good thing. Made a lift the flap element top right for some more private journaling. Used Washi tape as a hinge. Trimmed down a 3x4 card from Project Life I had not used. This week the colour scheme was blues to tone with the pictures.
