how sweet it is.

Hello, friends! It's been a while since I've played with the Berry Sweet Kit from The Greeting Farm so I thought I would revisit this cute kit once again. My nephew was baptized this past weekend and the Project Life cards were perfect sentiments for the sweet occasion. I tried my hand at digital Project Life using the free templates. It was so easy with Photoshop Elements! I might have to try more of these pages. Then again, I love paper and glue too much to use digi exclusively. :)

The colors of the elements are just perfect for this card using Oh Boy Ian and Valentine Anya. The pinks and aquas are my favorite color combinations. :)

new journal cards.

Hello, crafty friends!  Today, The Greeting Farm has released new add-on Journal Cards to the Summertime Kit Release. They are great for Project Life and other crafty paper summer projects. This new released  has jumpstarted my Project Life mojo.  Halleluyer! It's been lacking the past couple of months and I needed something to bring it back to life. :)

tgf easter kit.

I am so very excited to share that I have been invited to participate as a DT member for The Greeting Farm! I was very lucky to play and experiment with The Greeting Farm's newly released Easter Kit.  Just in time for those springtime photos and activities.

The Easter Kit comes with digital cuts that can be used with the Print and Cut Feature of the Silhouette Cameo.  There are bunny and chick cut files, 4x6 and 3x4 cards, all perfect for Project Life pages.  So easy and saves so much time!

It also comes with the cute and sweet Easter Bean digi image.  She is adorable with her bunny outfit and Easter egg.

project life 2013 week 1.

I am very far behind Project Life 2013. I am such a big fan of the Project Life experience and it was such an accomplishment finishing 52 weeks of Project Life 2012.  I just haven't found my groove yet. It has taken me a while to prepare for this new year and to get a feel for my new theme- Seafoam. This first week was a difficult one. Halleluyer. It's done.

welcome 2013.

It's been almost a year since my last blog post. I'm embarrassed to say that I have almost forgot about the ol' blog. I haven't completely dropped off the face of the earth.  find that I can only have one active social outlet and it became Instagram. Still, I am proud to say that I have completed 1 full year of Project LIfe. 52 whole weeks. Who knew? I cannot wait to start Project Life 2013!

Here's the link in case any one is still out there.

Project Life 2012


project life 2012 week 3.

I don't know how I ever scrapbooked without Project Life. It has taken away all the pressure from coming up with something new, a catchy title, and matching all my supplies. I just print photos, stick leftover embellishments wherever they may fit, and tuck into pockets. All I need is a couple of hours a week. That's it. I feel free and I like scrapbooking again. :) I've completed 6 pages in 3 weeks. I don't think I scrapped 6 pages last year.

project life 2012 week 1 and 2.

Happy first post of the New Year!

I have purchased Clementine and am currently using it that instead of the Amber version. I have used the Instagram and the Momento apps for the iPhone to help me document my moments for Project Life. So far, so good! I love this process. It's so much easier than scrapbook pages. The pockets are so convenient and everything does not seem so overwhelming.

Here is Week 1:

Here is Week 2:

Can't wait to do next week's pages! :)


preparing for project life.

Project-life-logoI have been extremely slacking in the scrapbooking area and wanted to find a way to jumpstart my creativity as well as document my life. I hope to do this with Project Life by Becky Higgins. I took advantage of the Black Friday deal and purchased the Amber Edition, page protectors, and albums at Amazon.com. I cannot wait to start this project. Last year was a blur and barely documented what happened with me, good or bad. I want to put down more memories on paper. I want to remember my life.

One thing that I struggle with is what to document. I don't have my own children and am finding it difficult to scrapbook my mundane life. I work a lot and struggle to find balance. I want to document about my relationship with my husband, my siblings, my parents. I want to document everyday boring chores like dishes and laundry. I want to create more. I want to document my faith, the importance of my church choir, the church community that I serve. I want to doument celebrations, parties, birthdays, anniversaries. I want to take more photos and not worry about what they look like. I will be using my iPhone camera more. I need to do more fun things and not be defined by my work. Project Life is one of those fun things. I hope. :)

How will I do this while working 40-50 hours a week?

  1. Take more photos and document when those photos were taken.
  2. Designate a spot on my craft table for Project Life.
  3. Keep all Project Life supplies together.
  4. Stalk blogs and Pinterest for ideas.
  5. Print photos straight from my iPhone.
  6. Blog more.
