PL WK 9 2016 & a Process Video for Noel Mignon

Happy Monday!
Today I have a new process video of my Project Life Week 9, using Noel Mignons 

I created 4 weeks, including several extra insert pages with this fabulous kit.

 Here is the week in full

 Here is the left side. I also didn't notice the typo on my journal card until I was editing the video, lol. We will just blame in on the fact I created this spread at 5:30am and was waiting for the coffee to brew.

 And here is the right side of the spread. Don't you just love the clear acetate cards?!!
I used some of the polka dot ribbon from a past kit, and stitched it to this card. I love the element of fabric & ribbons added to each week, because it adds a fun texture to the page.

I also used my sewing machine, and stitched on most of the cards for more texture.

I used from my stash the following
- OA Catch Phrase Roller Stamp
- OA Daily Flash Snap Peas Green Alphas
- Tiny Grey Alphas

Thanks for taking the time to read this post and watch the video!

Project Life Wk 8 2016 & a Process Video

Happy Monday! Today I want to share with you a new process video using the Noel Mignon Heart of Gold Daily Diary Kit!

and here are some still shots

I loved working with this months kit! There were so many fun elements like the 4x4 glittered wood veneer, and the gold glitter enamel dots!
This weeks theme for the Design Team is "Hearts All a Flutter" - make an interactive or moving element (ex: dangling charm, hidden journaling, etc.) on your page. 

I chose to do an interactive element on my page. The bottom right hand corner of my page, I added a tag from Liam's new spring jacket.

I added a photo of the jacket, and stitched it to the tag that was on it. I slipped it into the page protector, so that the top part of the tag is on the outside, making it easy to open and read.

And here are a few close ups!

I hope you enjoyed a look at my process and the end result of my Project Life Wk 8. I'd love to hear what you think.

Love You Layout & a Process Video

Today I want to share with you a layout I created last week, using up bits from my stash that have been hanging around!

I also created a process video for this layout! I hope you enjoy it!

Look at all the bits and bobs on this layout! I just love it!

I used some chipboard from the Crate Paper Oh Darling collection

That pink flower has my heart! I have been hoarding it for ages

I did some stamping with my Prima Stamps, and I also used my pink metallic Heidi Swapp texture paste, and stencil

The title was fussy cut from my Crate Paper Hello Love paper pad.

I hope you enjoyed my layout and video. I would love for you to subscribe to my youtube channel and give me a thumbs up!

Happy Valentines Day Clay

I love this man more everyday! Who would have thought almost 10 years ago we would have met on an online dating service?

He declared his love for me, I wanted to break up with him (I was just scared). He sold his house (4 hours away from me) and moved into my apartment. After a whirlwind romance, engagement, new house, and pregnant all within 14 months, we settled into this thing we call "life"

 2 kids, 2 dogs, 2 houses later, here we are, and I wouldn't change a thing. We are not perfect. We have had our ups and downs just like any relationship, but we compliment each other and here we are 10 years later, stronger than ever, more in love everyday and I wouldn't change a thing!
Last night we were driving home from my Mom's house, just having random conversations about nothing important, and I said "Can you imagine if I was a meek & mild person" and his response was "no, you're pushy" and was like "WHAT?!!" and he said "Not in a bad way, just a redhead way" and I said "No one has ever said that to me" and he said "Really?!!" and I was like " you wish I was more meek & mild?" and he said "Nope, I love you the way you are"

You can read about our first 6 years together HERE

I love you Clay, and I am so glad I didn't break up with you!

Summer Fun Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout & a Process Video

Happy Wednesday!

So last summer, I was creating a layout for the Noel Mignon Design Team, and thought I'd try my had at making a process video. I had no clue what I was doing. I made this with the hubbys GoPro, hence why the sides of the video are curved a bit. I had no idea how to edit it, so there it sat. Well finally last night, I figured it out, and here it is!

Thanks for checking it out, and if you like what you saw in the video, give it a thumbs up! And if you would like to see more video please subscribe!

Project Life Wk 6 2016

Happy Monday! Today I am sharing with you my Project Life Week 6, using the Noel Mignon Heart Of Gold Daily Diary Kit

Here is an unboxing video I made of the kit last week

Its snowing here today, and I had a heck of a time trying to photograph. All my gold elements look brown, so I apologize.
This weeks theme for the design team is "Love Letters". We were asked to either journal or do a fun technique and/or design element with letters. I chose to do 2 things, one was to write some journaling to my boys about how they didn't want to wait for me to make dinner, so they toasted half a loaf of bread! The second thing I did was to add the total of my Costco bill, down the side of my card with some Thickers from my stash!

 There are so many fun elements in this kit! I love the "clear" Pink Paislee stickers, like the one that says "Epic" on the bottom corner of this photo! I also used some scraps of ribbon from my stash on this layout. I made a little tab out of yellow ribbon above, and I made a ruffle out of blue ribbon below.
I love all the glittery cards and gold cards in this months kit! I am also loving the Crate Paper Hello Love gold heart stickers!
 The gold diamond shape paperclip was perfect to hold my receipt in the pocket!
 I added stitching to several of the cards for some added texture

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope I inspired you to create something today!!

Project Life 2016 Week 5 & a Process Video!

Happy Sunday! Today I want to share with you my first ever Project Life Process Video on YouTube!

This is my last project using the January Sweet Charlotte Daily Diary Kit from Noel Mignon. I made 5 project life weeks using it!
 Once again,I created another insert page. This time I cut down a 12x12 Design A Project Life page to 3.5x12. I also stitched it closed using the yellow pom pom trim as the edging.
 And here is what it looks like without the insert.
 I used my Zing Embossing Powder in Cricket to heat emboss the wood veneer.
 The blue glitter Thickers were from a past Noel Mignon kit
 And here are some close ups
 Oh how I love that yellow pom pom trim from the kit!
 I used my Stickles in Diamond on some of the cards, to give some texture.
 Thanks so much for stopping by!

I hope you had a chance to watch the process video! Please give me a thumbs up in it if you like what you saw, and want to see more videos, and don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube Channel! In future, I hope to do voice overs, but this weekend, with everyone home, it just was not going to happen lol!
