Baby Boy Mini Album

This is an album that had been sitting in my to-do bin for a long time, so I pulled it out and finished it.  I love the way it turned out.  It is a chipboard mini album with a soft spine.  Some of the diecuts were cut using the Cricut.  I added a lot of over sized tags.  I tried to use different methods for each page.  I included pocket pages, flip pages and blank pages.  This album ended up with plenty of space for pictures and journaling.  I had fun completing this album and found that I miss making them.  Now that I am caught up with my Project Life album I can make time to get back to creating things again.

Project Life Week #16

I am finally caught up on my Project Life album pages.  This week was all about the outside.  Grass was cut for the first time this year, and boy did it need it.  The boys were not thrilled to have to get out there.  My husband drained and cleaned the top of the pool, the tulips were in bloom and my rose bushes had new leaves.  For Mother's Day every year instead of getting flowers I asked my husband to buy me a rose bush instead.  This is my very first one.  The tulips were from a house up the street that had been torn down and they were going to level the land off, so my husband dug them up and transplanted them before they got destroyed.  I was very surprised that they took so well and came back up this year.

Exploring - Sesame Street Seasons

This is the fifth video in my "Exploring the Cricut Cartridge" series titled : Exploring Sesame Street Seasons".  I purchased this cartridge at a local craft store on clearance for about $15.00.  This is a very nice cartridge with lots of really nice diecuts.  I really love it because it can be used year round on many different layouts.  It has diecuts for playing in the pool tp playing in the snow.

Project Life - Week #15

This is my week #15 of my Project Life album.  This one is also a 2-page layout due to it being my birthday. The first page is all about the cake, It was Banana Nut from Classic Bakery.  We had to get it on Sunday because they are closed on Mondays.  The second page was about my birthday and a gift that I received.  I had to work all day that day and the next two more.  I received a game called "The Big Bang Theory" from a friend.  Didn't get a chance to play until Saturday.  My dear husband gave me shopping money.  One of my favorite kind of gift.

Project Life - Week 14

This is my Week #14 of my "Project Life" album.  I made this one a 2-page layout due to the Easter holiday.      I wanted to dedicate one page just for the holidays then another page for the rest of the week.   So Page # 1 is for Easter 2013.  Even though my sons are adults I still fix them their baskets.  Our baby girl gets a her basket filled with yummies.  Page #2 is the reat of the week.  I finally got my desk cleaned and yet another trip to the Cleveland VA for more testing for my husband.

Project Life Week 10 - 13

I wanted to share my weeks 10 - 13 Project Life pages.  I also wanted to share with you my new binder that I use to help me keep up with my Project Life pages.  Using it along with my regular planner has helped me to catch up.  I have only two pages to do this week then I am back on schedule.   I hope to finish the background pages to these last two weeks today then add the pictures and the journaling later this week when I print them out.

Keeping Up with Project Life Part #2 and Projest Life Week 7-9

I wanted to share with you how I am keeping up with my Project Life pages.  I also wanted to share my weeks 7 - 9.  With my system I was able to do these three weeks in one evening.  I don't have much time to scrapbook lately and found that Project Life was the way to go, (I am still saving pictures to do my regular scrapbook pages for those special days as usual).   Now I found myself getting behind using this method, but with my new system I am catching up fast without much effort.  At this rate I'm going, I should be caught up soon.  Once I am, I hope to add a regular scrapbook page per week to get caught up with them also.  A never ending project. Lol
