This month the Memory Keeping with Project Life SU design team have a theme which is “A Day in the Life!”

I’ve been itching to use my new kit All Year Long, particularly because we have just finished our busiest time of year on farm (calving time).

The days sure go pretty quick! My sanity saver is having 15 mins to craft on those busy days and sometimes a nap is more important but its like my little treat!

The housework can wait!

Here are my pages. Very unflattering photos but hey ..waking up at 4.30am is not the time to take a selfie!

Thank goodness for my slow cooker..its my one kitchen appliance I rely on all year round but especially in Winter and Spring.

12654617_1217563871607105_1504381475554147677_nHi and welcome to our latest blog share for the Memory Keeping Project Life SU Design team. If you arent already a member of this facebook group, then join our lovely page of Memory Keeping Project Life style.

This month is anything goes …so I pulled out my new favourite..Hello Lovely Kit and had a play..

Now these photos have been sitting around for well over a year …in fact nearly two years. I was intending on making a mini album with them so I had them printed as two ups (ie 2 2×3″ photos on a 4×6″ photo).

So rather than reprinting some as full 4×6″ photos I just used the two ups in the 4×6″ pockets. It makes it a very busy page but is a great way to showcase an event.

I simply had a lot of photos needing to go into this recording of an event so PL came to the rescue!

Yes we are back this month for our monthly blog share using the New Hello Lovely Pl collection and Accessory kit. The new addition to the accessory kit is a set of stamps with the kit!

Here’s my pages of my Corgi Maggie!  .. I stamped ‘Hello Lovely’ and ‘life’ on this page. I cut down a few of the cards for some layers and corner rounded some and not others. I love to edge my photos and card with black ink.

There are a few new accessories I liked in this kit: The printed acetate, the chipboard flowers (I coloured these in but the look equably fab just as is I think!) and the little diecuts in the 2×2 cards are cute!

I kept this page pretty simple ..its all about the photos and the journalling on this one!

This month we as a Design Team, are showcasing all of the retiring Project Life kits out of the 2015/2016 Annual Catalogue.

I decided to use Lets Get Away Collection as my focus this month. This is a travel themed Collection but one of the most fave things I like to do is use these collections for a different theme..just shows you how versatile these collection kits can be!

My pages are about my Stampin’ Up! team and how much fun I have with these girls at camps and events. Usually our monthly team meeting has some fun moments always too!

I love these 6×12 pockets which thankfully are going through as the Variety Pack 2 is my favourite Pocket page pack! I just made a slit in the side of the pocket so I could add in the centrestage ribbon!

Stampin” Up! Spoil us rotten at Onstage (and Centre Stage)! IMG_4915-001

This month the Memory Keeping with Stampin’ Up! Project Life Design Team are thinking a bit out of the box and we decided to use any kit with gold or silver.

Well you know my favourite kit is Moments Like These..which actually has quite a few elements of gold in the card collection and the accessory collection, but, I decided to make a lot of my embellishments for this page using some gold foil.

Here’s my page ..

IMG_4348-002.JPG

Each of my cards, I used a little gold. The alphabet stickers I used for the title are from the Moments like these accessory kit but all the others ie cheers and you & me are using the Greetings thinlits, Hello you thinlits, Little Numbers thinlits and the Cutie pie thinlits.

I used a gold Wink of Stella for the dreamers card. I just coloured in some of the words and also used it to colour in the stars and the chipboard (‘today’). Finally, I added some gold sequins and a paperclip (accessories collection). I cut out a circle using the gold foil sheet and used those on a couple of cards to fill in some unnecessarily space too.

If you are on facebook, do check out our Memory Keeping with Stampin’ Up! Project life page for more ideas.

In the meantime..check out the other Design Team Members below and see what they came up with using Gold and/or Silver as their focus.

The Memory Keeping Project Life Stampin’ Up! team are using the Sale a Bration Memories in the Making PL Specialty Card collection as their focus for this months blog share.

I teamed mine up with the Memories in the Making Collection and Accessory kit! So clever for SU to make everything match …one of Stampin’ Up! appeal to most crafters don’t you think?

One the last pages I’ve done for our Sons 21st…glad to be finished! I also used a gold wink of stella brush on the star and camera…love this brush! All three bottom pockets use the SAB overlays…they are gorgeous!

Happy crafting!
