Project Life 2014 Album and News

Hi Friends,
I have to admit, I can more often be found on Instagram. Are you an IG'er? I use "Scrapcollectr" as my moniker. I just love taking photos of daily life because I then upload them and my journaling into my CollectPhotoApp with the intention of printing them in a 4x6 format and then slipping them into a binder. Lately, I'm following monthly prompts provided by another Instagrammer called @FatMumSlim. Check her out if you'd like to play along.

If that wasn't enough, I'm enrolled in a Studio Calico class called Day by Day that's enabling me to keep a more traditional Project Life Album this year. On this 6th day of January, I've already created a title page and a first page that illustrates two of their prompts. I decided to use one of Becky Higgin's Project Life kit that I bought through HSN awhile back that changed up the sizes of pockets in the page protectors. It's called Just Add Color and I'm having fun with the little 2x2 cards included in the kit.

Here are the two pages I mentioned, as well as a closeup of the first page. Just wanted you to see that I snuck in little features like a wood veneer word bubble (Studio Calico) and wood veneer bird (Recollections) and a paper clip shaped like a magnifying glass (Literary Set by Barnes & Nobel) and a red gem. I was illustrating the fact that I spied little red berries on the snow covered tree next to my garage and that made me happy.

The NEWS I mentioned in the subject line is that after working for EK Success for a year and a half, I finally get to go to HSN this week to help with the setup of 3 spots that will air this Friday (the 10th) at 7am, 3pm and 6pm EST. They are Martha Stewart Craft spots that celebrate the upcoming Valentine season with loads of fun punches, stickers, papers, glitters and more. I hope you will tune in. Just imagine me somewhere back beyond the studio lights. *smile*

Have a crafty week and don't forget to check out the group blog that I participate in: The Crafting Journals. There is always crafty fun going on over there!

Looks good. Love the colours. I'm embarking on Pl this year too - but monthly or when I feel like it - I don't want the stress of committing to weekly spreads

Oh I love those little 2 x 2 pockets. I'm kinda stalling on getting my PL started this year. Sorry, I don't do Instagram, but I'll be checking here regularly.
