MDS Monday Sketch Challenge

Today I'm linking up to a sketch challenge over at MDS Monday.  When I saw the little border for the Project Life 3x4 cards, I just had to play along!  I'm working on photos from two different vacations right now… One I'm doing digital and the other I'm doing with traditional Project Life. I'm having so much fun!  I thought this sketch would be perfect for these two photos from a cruise we took last year:

Products Used:
Playground Project Life Cards Digital Download
Happy Hello Baker's Twine
Fall Memories - Tape
Downtown Grunge - Frames

I think I might have to use this sketch again!  So fun and super quick to pull together!  Yay!

Thanks for visiting!!  :)

My page isn't uber exciting but I am sooo loving getting my weekly pages done!  The selfie I used is one my hubby and I took of ourselves while we were out walking:

I used my Selphy to print our selfie… so I should get extra bonus points for that!  :P

PLxSU Trio Challenge #5

Happy Monday!  Welcome back to another new PLxSU Trio Challenge!  I'm loving these weekly challenges and the pages I'm getting done!  This week, the Trio challenges you to use a banner and/or flag on your Project Life layout. Here's what I did for this challenge:

Products Used:
Cardstock (Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry)
Stampin' Write Marker (Basic Black)

I love these photos and had fun with this simple page.  I mimicked the banner on the journaling card and added it to the bottom left photo.  I also punched out two flags, stapled them together, and added to the top.  So easy but showcases these cute photos well.

What will you create this week?  We can't wait to see the pages uploaded to the PLxSU Trio Challenge Facebook Page.  You have until Sunday evening to play along.  We hope you'll join us!  And don't forget to stop by Amber and Holly's blogs to see what they've done this week!

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

PLxSU Trio Challenge #4

Good morning!  It's time for a new PLxSU Trio Challenge!  This week we challenge you to use arrows on your Project Life pages.  Easy right?!  I spent my Saturday scrapbooking with friends.  I made two more pages of a beach trip we took to Hilton Head.  I used arrows on both:

Products Used:
This Day Project Life Mini Card Collection 
Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set
What's Up? Stamp Set
Best of Greetings
Coast Cabana & Black Staz-on Ink

I had fun with these pages!!  I used arrows on both sides using the What's Up Punch and What's Up? Stamp Set.

And stamped on my photos - from last week's challenge!  I'm now hooked on this technique!

We can't wait to see what you do this week!  You have until next Sunday evening to post your creations on our PLxSU Trio Challenge Facebook Page.  And don't forget to stop by Holly and Amber's blogs to see what they've created!

Thanks for stopping by!

PLxSU Trio Challenge #3

Hi there!  I can't believe it's already our 3rd challenge!  I'm having so much fun seeing everyone's Project Life creations and am inspired to keep working on my own albums. :)  This week the Trio challenges you to stamp (or use a digi stamp) on a photo on your Project Life Page.  I tried both Staz On ink and Craft Ink.  You can probably guess which one worked better… that old Craft Ink took forever to dry!!  This is one of my 2015 weekly spreads:

I've been using stamping a lot on my Project Life pages but this is the first time I stamped directly on my photo.  It's always fun to try something new! :)

Products Used:
Happiness Is Project Life Card Collection
Happiness Is Project Life Accessor Pack
Remember This Project Life Stamp Set
Point & Click Project Life Stamp Set

Again, I used my Silhouette and MDS to cut out my title.  I'm enjoying the consistency of that week after week.  We'll see if I tire of it -- ha!

Now we want to see what you create for this week's challenge!  We hope you're inspired to work on those Project Life Albums!  Post your photos to the PLxSU Trio Challenge Facebook Page here!   Also, make sure and stop by Holly & Amber's blogs to see what they've done this week!

Thanks for visiting!
