Project Life 2012 brings us back!

As you can see, it has been a really long time since we have done anything with this blog. Pretty sad! I have been unbelievably inspired by all the buzz on the internet over Project Life and have decided this is going to be my year. My husband jokes that it's Project 60 because for the past two years, that's when I have lost my momentum and Project Life has gone by the wayside. But, this year is going to be different! Now there's Pinterest and so much inspiration out there to help keep me going. I am working on getting my 2010 and 2011 half-finished albums merged into one. I tend to be all or nothing but need to be grateful that I have some memories saved from the last two years.

One tip I have to share is that in past years, I would follow some blogger advice to pre-date all the cards and insert them into the album. For me, that was a big mistake. I got so far behind and there was no way to catch up. It really discouraged me from picking it up again. This time, I'm going to do my best and if a week goes by that I don't document, I'm just going to let it go and be happy with it.

Hopefully I can get my sister to join me on this blog again! Maybe this way, it will hold me accountable. My resolution with Project Life is to spend as much time working on my own album as I do admiring everyone else's work out there. So, here's my week one and week two. I'm almost finished. Just need to finish up a few journaling cards.

Back from the land of nod...

I made this card for a friend who is going through a rough time right now. It uses PTI kraft cardstock, my flower punch is from Stampin Up, and a piece of fabric from my Polka Dot Whimsy kit....and some new thickers! Love those American Crafts thickers! Hope this card brightens her day! :)

The heart already knows...

From the Papertrey files comes a card using the best color ever...raspberry fizz! Sentiment is from the heart print set. I used some cosmo cricket chipboard flowers, my beloved swiss dot embossing folder and a raspberry button to finish it off. I even rounded one corner...as Nichole would do! :)

My Dawn M Inspired card...

A day late and a dollar short, I know...but this is my Dawn McVey inspired card. All products are PTI, except for the sentiment 'friend' which is from CHF (Kim Hughes) and the bling....oh, ok and the button! Sheesh! :) Now, don't you think I should have won!?

Another Case...more PTI Inspiration

I love going through the design team gallery each and every month! There is just loads and loads of inspiration and great ideas!! Here are some cards I made with the Stationary set that I love. I cased them from Lisa Johnson and you can see hers here. I used the new PTI color spring rain and the simple alphabet (which I love too! ;)

Another Case from a Favorite Release...

This is a case from Betsy Veldman who is becoming one of my most favorite designers ever!!!! I love her style, her color combos and everything she creates!!! I used a PTI vellum bag, my new Simply Stationary (since I didn't have Damask Designs yet) and some PTI cardstock. Here is where I got all my inspiration! I packaged this up for a gift for one of my husband's coworkers...now I can't wait to get my new Feb stamps so I can use the large damask stamp that Betsy used. :)
