One Little Word | 2014 July Prompt

Here is a look at my July One Little Word prompt. After listening to the video, I really wanted to do something with a lot of WHITE. I was really planning on keeping it completely white. White on white on white. But, I ended up adding a little touch of color.

 

I AM SAVED (by grace through faith).

I AM LOVED.

I AM BROKEN.

I AM our family historian.

I AM adventurous.

I AM in progress.

I AM a daughter.

I AM a wife.

I AM a mother.

On Cherry Street | Guest Designer

Another great kit from Sweet Stamp Shop. Here is a peak into Reflections. I did an entire spread just on Coda’s first day of school. Be sure to head over to the Sweet blog to check out the rest of the inspiration.

And a close up. Can’t believe this boy is in 4th grade!!

Besides the Reflection kit I also used:

- some washi, a date stamp and the number 4 stamp from a past Studio Calico kit

- some letter stamps I think I had found at Michaels

- Tim Holtz distressed ink

- Becky Higgins Project Life page protectors Design B

- Becky Higgins Project Life childhood mini kit

Thanks for stopping by.

On Cherry Street | Ahoy Kit

Hi everyone. I’m Michelle. I blog family life, recipes, and a whole lot of project life inspiration over at Table for Five. This month I had the privilege of playing with the new On Cherry Street kits. Here’s a little peak into the Ahoy kit and what I did with all the goodies.

I decided to make little tags with my stamps. This is a great way to use up some of the scraps you get when you print anything at home. I save all my scraps and pull them out for projects like this.

Simple! Just stamp on little pieces of white card stock.

And then adhere to your photo. And you have the perfect little caption.

I wanted to show what a great summer we’ve been having. This spread is going to go in my Project Life album immediately following the end of July. The other side of the page protector will be my intro to August. (You’ll have to come back to the Sweet Blog to see that in a couple weeks, hint hint!)

Here is the full layout.

And a couple close ups of the final.

Thanks for stopping by!

One Little Word | 2014 May Prompt

Here is a look at my One Little Word for May. I ended up taking a bunch of selfies and mostly iPhone photos for this project. I then printed my captions on cardstock using the impact label font and cut each word out and adhered to each image.

Here’s a close up. I just used various alpha stickers and the paper is from Thataway Studio Calico paper pad.

Life Needs More:

More trampoline naps.

More family bike rides. More relaxing in the gorgeous weather.

More walks in nature to just breathe. More craft time. More flip flop days.

More date nights.

More being present and choosing fun.

Today…

Today was the first day of school for Coda at his new school.

Today I was full of anxiety and stress for him.

Today I am thankful for great neighbor friends to come over and eat lunch and hang out to take my mind off stuff.

Today, Coda said his day was AWESOME!

Today, I am a mom to a 4th grader. WOW.
