On Cherry Street | Reflections Kit

New to Project Life? Read this post on how to start. Project Life is a simple memory keeping system created by Becky Higgins to document all the big moments in your life alongside the everyday.

One of the reasons I love project life is because it’s simple. Here is what I consider a FINAL spread. Mostly photos, a few cards from the vintage travel kit and a digital element from Paislee Press (pictures + words No 13).

But, then I got a hold of the Reflections kit from Sweet Stamp Shop. They had this cute little fire on one of the cards and I instantly came to this spread and decided to add a little to it. I decided to add three more elements to the page to form a nice visual triangle. This literally took me 15-20 minutes. And I love it!

Here’s the card I stole the fire from.

I then just layered my three little elements on 1″ circles I punched form a piece of scrap paper I had laying around. It was from the Thataway paper collection from Studio Calico.

This arrow was in the Ahoy kit from Sweet Stamp Shop.

And then I used the word “love” from the stamp that said “in love with:” from the Reflections kit. I used one of Tim Holtz Distress Markers to be able to just color in the one word from the stamp.

Do you ever go back and add things to “final” layouts?

Here’s another layout I made using the reflections kit. Each month I do an introduction to the month before adding in my photos + stories. (You can see January hereFebruary hereMarch here and April here. I loved being able to use one of the prompt cards from the reflections kit to show where we are right now. Sometimes stories don’t have photos that go along with them, or you just don’t know where to add the story in the album. Using prompt cards like this one from the Reflections kit is awesome for these types of stories.

Here’s a closer look at our schedule for the month.

And a close up of the prompt card.

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 | 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.
