31 Things- 3:35pm, Outside, Drink, and Write

It is getting close to December Daily time. To prepare myself, I have not done any prep work for the album. Instead I have been trying to finish up other projects so I feel like I can concentrate full on that project and enjoy the holiday season.

I have completed 3 more weeks of Project Life. I have come to realize that some of the things I put in those pages are a little personal to post. So I will not be sharing all of them here.

Same has shown to be true on my 31 Things Album pages, so I may skip a few that I do not wish to share publicly. 

I have completed the journaling for all 31 Things. The bones have been completed for all 31 Things. There are a few more photos that I have to take or select for 4 more topics and then this project is complete! Here are 4 pages for my the 31 Things album.

Had some fun with some new free digital elements on this one from ChrissyW. May have to use these photo strips to create more pages!

Love how the photo turned out on this one! Loved playing with more of my digital freebies like the washi tape!

Hope you are enjoying the Holiday Season! Can't wait to start playing with my December Daily soon! A layout to share that I finished up too.
Thanks for looking!

Training League

This year's soccer season is over so I thought it was about time to finish up last years photos!

This layout was heavily inspired by pages made by Nichol Magouirk. She likes to use the photo collage templates from Kerri Bradford for one. I love these collage templates in PSE. Great way to get a lot of photos on the page! Even my son commented that he like how there were a lot of photos.

For the most part, everything is  Bella Blvd. The blue gingham paper is old Creative Memories. Used black polka dot washi from Smash as well as a red polka dot washi from Bella Blvd. Used a couple of journaling cards from my Project Life Cobalt kit. I have been making so many of my own journaling cards I could spare a few.

Used some of the Studio Calico exclusive sets from Two Peas in a Bucket. Loving these! (Memo and for the record) Also used a corner tab punch (retired from Stampin up) as well as the Jenni Bowlin file tab punch.

Used the Alphabits stamp set from Stampin up and punched them out as circles this time for the title. Used a couple of stamps from Technique Tuesday to put 2011 for the year.

Love how this turned out! Thanks for stopping to take a look!

31 Things- Listen and Carry

Here is another 2 things completed for my 31 Things class at BPC.

I was hoping to find a picture of something that wasn't quite so literal for listen, but never did and just went for it to get it done! The photo is actually much older than the journaling, so I put the date on the photo so I could remember that.

Thanks for looking!

"Toad"aly Wild Ride

This is another kit from my friend Tami at

Used this for the Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. Since the statue of Mr. Toad was wood, it was fun to pull in some wood grain elements like the journaling card, the chipboard stickers and the buttons on the flowers.

For this kit, I added quite a few little things to the original kit. I added the orange flowers, the Sassafrass chipboard stickers and journaling spot, as well as the Basic Grey alpha stickers.

I also used a new Studio Calico stamp set that is exclusive to Two Peas in a Bucket. These stamp sets are so versatile! 

I outlined the large brown alpha stickers with a white marker so they were a little more visible on the page.  Used another stamp on the journaling spot and printed my journaling from the computer so I could make sure it all fit.

Thanks for looking!
