Project Life: Best Day

Last year about this time, I threw an engagement party for my brother and his fiance. It was straight out of Pinterest. Twinkle lights, bales of hay, photo banner, chalkboard art, a s'mores bar, mason jars, burlap. It was so much work, but so worth it to see how happy the newly engaged couple was. It really was the Best Day!

Best Day

How stinking cute are they? Just about as cute as that little fox on the Pink Paislee Cedar Lane papers that came in my November Project Life kit from The ScrapRoom. See the full kit HERE!

Well, that is my last layout for November. I'll be back soon with some Christmas layouts. Christmas! Already! Crazy. I still have so much to do .....

Project Life: Two Singles

Hi friends. Today, I have two single-page Project Life pages to share. As you may have noticed, not all of my pages are double-page weekly layouts. Sometimes, I have a page that contains a week's (or month's) worth of pictures, and sometimes I create a page for an event. It just depends on the pictures that I have. At the end of the day, I'm just glad to print out the pictures and get them into an album. Here's an event layout.

Book Lover

These pictures of my son completing his Scholastic book order were taken in October of 2014. The picture at the top right, however, was published on the teacher's website in January 2015. I love that I can combine all these related photos onto one page. That, for me, is part of the beauty of working about a year behind.

All the supplies on this page, except the Thickers, are from my November Project Kit from The ScrapRoom. I just LOVE the colors. You can see the full kit HERE.

So Very Thankful

This is my FAVORITE layout this month. The pictures are of my brother on the day he proposed to his girlfriend. So sweet! The supplies are from the same kit as the layout above.

I'm not sure if you can tell, but in the 3x4 pocket at left in the above photo, I added one of the Becky Higgins Project Life Everyday Photo Overlays. You actually THREE of them in the kit! What a great deal.

Um ... that pineapple is perfect. Suits my future sister-in-law to a T. She is so trendy and has such a bright personality. Yep, pretty perfect.

Ok, then, that's it for me. Hope to see you soon!

Quick Tip: Faux Washi

Hi there friends! Today I want to share a quick and easy tip with you. It's great for your Project Life cards as well as scrapbook pages and cards. Faux washi tape!

First, as for supplies, you need a pair of scissors and a small strip of patterned paper. I used the two narrow strips from the bottom edge of the Pink Paislee Market square paper that came in the November Project Life Kit.

Use your scissors to cut a wavy, beveled edge at both ends of a short strip of paper. The idea is to make it look like you tore off a piece of washi tape. Then adhere that strip onto your project as though it is holding down a photo or card. Here is my example.

Such a simple little trick, but I love how it really grounds the coordinating puffy stickers that came in this kit. So before you throw away the perforated strips of paper that come on the edges of your 12x12 paper sheets, see if you can use a bit for some faux washi tape.

Thanks for stopping by!
