I am still pretty much in love with the Project Life concept. It is such a great way to remember all the everyday memories (well almost everyday for me)! Maggie Holmes Open Book collection has so many pretty elements & thought I should showcase them on my PL spread too.
Since last year, I decided to create bi-weekly spreads instead of weekly. It is a perfect option for a SAHM with a sticky toddler like me. I love keeping my spreads simple & clean so that I do not have to spend too much time on each spread.
It is pretty simple to decorate each card. I used the Becky Higgins Design F, so I cut the patterned papers into 4"x6" and 3"x4". Then all I did was to use the vellum shapes, floral ephemera, stickers & thickers to decorate each card. Once done, I slotted them into the designated pockets.
Here are the close-ups:
I have also used vellums on 2 of my cards with the glitter thickers to create a softer look.

Hey there again! Today I am going to share what I have designed for PinkFresh Studio.
This is the March Embellishment kit. Absolutely adore everything about it! You may check the content of this kit HERE, tons of beautiful products!
Present to you 2 of my projects...
I had a lot fun creating this card. I really love the stamp set by Neat & Tangled for PinkFresh Studio. I started of with the random background stamping with Staz On Grey ink. Then I completed it with the labels & feather puffy stickers.
This layout has the same background as the card, I stamped it with crosses. I added purple gelatos & washi tapes as well. Finished it with fun embellishments like sequins, wood bead stockers & acetate die cuts that you can find in your March kit.
Thank you so much for swinging by and see you again!
Absolutely love creating with this sketch. I love the white space.
For this layout, I decided to go with two colours ; mint green & pink (with pop of gold). I started with the pink background that I created with gelatos. Then I went on with the patterned paper + frame, adhered photos on them & lastly I embellished my layout with all the beautiful embellies that you can find in the March main kit + Sprinkles kit. Love how it turned out!

I'm always a fan of pretty things! And you can get tons of pretty things in the Open Book collection especially with the mix of floral ephemera + vintage elements! I love this photo of my daughter & me and decided to create a very feminine layout.
At first, I cut the patterned paper into the shape of triangles & to be honest, I was a little stuck on how to continue with the papers. All I knew was I wanted the papers in triangles. So I played around with positioning the triangles in a couple of ways. At the end, I positioned the way I liked it the best and it looked like a shape of a kite. Haha. Once I added the photo and flowers at the side, it all began to come together. Love how it turned out! Soft, feminine with touches of pretty things!

I always love to have graphic feel on my layouts. For this layout, I first cut the patterned paper to form a diagonal pattern. Then I adhered 2 frames in the middle and slowly worked my way to embellish around the photo.
I also machine stitched the faux washi tapes to create an interest to my layout.
Hope you are inspired to pull out your kits to create! Happy crafting!
