Try New Things PML Layout

Good morning, friends! 

This is the first time all week there hasn’t been something planned or on the go. I’m elated I have the chance to spend a few minutes with you and share another project!

This layout sure makes me pine for frost- free days! I created this layout to mimic a PML (Picture My Life) or Project Life layout, without using the proper page protector for it. So, you’ll notice the page is divided equally into your sections- three along the top and three along the bottom.  In the first column on the farthest left of the page, I used PML journaling cards to embellish, title, and create a spot for the eye to rest from the bright and vivid colors in the pictures. 

I added another (third) journaling card to the top far right on the page for some journaling. (Also, because the top most photo was cut to a 3×4 inch size.)

Lastly, to complete the page, I cut a trio of hearts using my cricut and adhered them to the centre of the page.

Treasured Moments Layout

I began this layout with a watercolor background, then layered paper and photos ontop of it. I used a 3×4 CTMH journaling card and some chippy embellishments for a little bling; there’s also two large chippy embellishments at the top of my photo cluster. They’re also both CTMH. 

Shoestring Planner Tuesday 

Hello friends! It was a fabulous holiday weekend here, but I’m so glad that we’ve returned to a normal schedule. It was kind of tough getting going this morning, but now that I’m back at it, I feel good!

I have last weeks’ planner spread to share with you. Are you ready for it?!

I kept it simple- added some scrap patterned paper squares to each day view, alternating it’s placement, then stamped and added ephemera to decorate it some. You’ll even see some rub- ons! 

Smitten Layout

Good morning!

I’m sharing an “usie” of my husband and I. It isn’t often yours truly makes it into a layout, but here it is. Sick it up, because it’ll be a million layouts before I wind up in another one. Just kidding, lol. 

I began by creating a watercolor background, then layered scrap papers ontop of it. I used a CTMH PML card (Picture my life), stamped and fussy cut some elements, and cut the title with my cricut. 

To finish, I added some bakers twine, lace ribbon and old Jillibean ephemera.

This Shimelle Laine layout sketch inspired me.

Shoestring Planner Tuesday 

Hello friends, it’s Tuesday! Feel like some planner goodness today?

As you can see, there was not much going on last week- it was rather quiet. I used scraps of paper to fill in the day views (news using 2 inches x 2.25 inches), then embellished them after all my appointments and reminders were written in. 

Shoestring Planner Tuesday 

Hello friends! 

I’m finally just getting my post up now. Groceries, then a massive migraine that’s still insisting on hanging around, sidelined me today. But, it’s better late than not at all!

Some big things happened last week- namely attending the gymnastics annual general meeting and applying for (and being accepted) as the secretary for the club! Pretty exciting stuff. We also spent the weekend in Edmonton, and began our Christmas shopping (somewhat). “Camping” actually turned into “glamping”- at my parents lol. 

Relax Pocket Pages

Hello everyone.  Today, I’m switching gears and sharing a couple pocket page layouts I created.

I used up some really ancient K&Co stickers that have been hidden in my stash for quite a few years. I also used some newer CTMH journal cards and paper flowers to embellish both sides of the page protector. 

For a little extra flair (and further personal clarification), I stamped the year in white ink on the month date journal cards.

Shoestring Planner Tuesday

Good morning friends!

It’s planner Tuesday, which means I have new planner inspiration for you!

I cut some of my scrap patterned paper to size, then adhered them to the day views inside my planner. 

Something like this:

Once my week was filled in with its various activities, I embellished using various stickers- there’s a mix of CTMH, Recollections, Creative Memories  (which is ancient, by the way), and Jillibean Soup. 

My favorite part is the punched portions I added to the middle day views. It looks pretty.

I dislike how light the ink is on this patterned paper. If I do it again, I’ll use lighter papers, so they don’t compete for attention!

Snail Mail Saturday

Hello friends, it’s Saturday again! Do you have any special plans for the weekend? Mine include hoping my children sleep through the night without waking up before 7 am. We seem to have lost this skill…

Here’s a peek at my incoming mail from this week, starting with the most recent to the oldest, not so recent smail. 

My dear pal from Australia sent an awesome  (meaning informative) postcard about Queensland and adorable stickers!

And, I’m not entirely sure, but I think the stationery, in the middle picture, from my dear pal in Germany, is perfumed. It smells lovely, although it’s faint. Is that a thing? 

I’ve been slow the last bit getting caught up on my letters and mailing them out, as I have been with everything else pleasurable to me as of late. I’m hoping to have them mailed by Tuesday.  Fingers crossed!
