Project Life 2013 Week 4 and Giveaway!

Saturday Blog Hop!

Michelle Bostinelos was wonderful and featured this post on her Saturday Blog Hop!  I am so excited to be a part of it.  Be sure to check out the other beautiful spreads she has featured plus some tips from a couple of Studio Calico design team members!

Week 4

I can't believe how fast time is flying this year.

The picture above is Connor helping me take pictures of my spread. He loves to hang out with me while I am working on it.  In week 6, you will see some pictures he drew that he was super excited to add to the album.

I am keeping it simple with my spreads. I mainly use my Cobalt Core Kit and supplies from my Studio Calico Block Party Project Life kit. Some weeks I embellish more and some weeks I don't really do anything but write on the cards and stick the photos in the pockets.

What is important to me is that I continue with it in a timely manner before I forget.  I have the worst memory for my own life.  I can remember what a page looks like in a book I read 10 years ago or what the area code is for New York city but what I ate for breakfast, nope. 

On the right side, I used some Thickers (Rockabye) I picked up for the Week 4 letters.  The January card is from the SC kit.  Everything else is the Cobalt core kit.

On the left side, I used more from the Cobalt core kit and one card from the SC kit.  The washi tape is a combination from the SC kit and My Mind's Eye that I got for a steal on Scrapbooking Daily deals.
The glittery stripe is Close to my Heart's Silver shimmer trim.  I love this stuff.


I am currently stash busting (see my sale tab) and I have some left over stamps from my time as a CTMH consultant.  Just leave a comment on the blog and I will randomly pick someone to receive this cute collection of little stamps.  Each stamp is about 1" just to give you an idea of size!  I will announce the winner next Wednesday.


  1. Love the little stamp with the envelop!!! Thanks for the chance.

  3. Just found your blog. I can't wait to look back on your posts. thanks for the opportunity to win the cute stamps.

  4. I love that you understand just continuing with the album and documenting things is more important than how embellished your spreads are each and every week. Take the time when have it, continue the simple process when time is more limited.
