I am feeling exceptionally happy that I have kept up with my project life pages. It’s such a thrill seeing it all come together, especially with amazing products! My four page spread was created using the July Bits & Pieces kit along with extras from the main, add-on and color kits. The Simple Stories 6×6 paper pad mixes perfectly with Fancy Pants 4×6 cards. Bold colors and modern design really helped my entry come together in cohesively.


I used a limited amount of embellishments this time around, but I did like adding the cork embellishments by Studio Calico from the color kit on a few of my page inserts. The added texture is nice and compliment the awesome summer stamps by Elle’s Studio.


This months focus was to just write it down and in doing so, I mixed it up with my own hand-writing and printed type. I also used a mix of blank ink, grey and black printed type along with the Uni-ball Signo white ink pen that is included in the color kit. Using words to get my point across this month was important as there were a limited amount of photos.


Our April started with us spending our last day in Myrtle Beach with family. In between, we celebrated my husbands birthday, spent a lot of time baking, planting our garden, taking a tour of all the monuments in D.C., play dates and more birthday parties and me spending a little quality time with my long time girlfriends. By far, a great month that has been documented nicely with an exceptional kit!


The Project 12 challenge is simple:

Whether you take 1 photo or 100 photos per month, you have a life to document.  Each month, your challenge is to document your life on a layout. Davinie is using divided page protectors to document her life on a 2-page spread.  She will have 12 2-page layouts at the end of the year that will be housed together in 12×12 albums and displayed so her family can look at them anytime they like.
