October Design Team Inspiration

Hi there friends! Happy Friday!!! It has been a crazy busy week at my house, so I am looking forward to a weekend that includes no real plans. What are you all up to?

I know, it has been a long time. I am so sorry for that. My blog was kind of abandoned. I am back and hoping to post at least a few times a month with Design Team inspiration and other little bits of goodness.

With that said, I am going to start today’s post with some amazing projects done by the Color Cast Designs Design Team with the October releases and follow up with a few projects from September’s release that I did not get to share.

October is a big month of releases as it includes; Halloween, Thanksgiving and December products (My Remember December collection). So, the Design Team had a lot of choices of what to play with for their first projects.

I hope that you enjoy this eye candy as much as I do. I have an amazing team and am so lucky to have them all!

The Wicked Awesome set.

I am going to group all layouts using the Remember December collection together as many of these projects have a mix of more than one set. I just really love them all!!

Project My Life//Album Cover & First Spread

Happy Friday!!!

Today, I am sharing the start of a project that I am doing all about me. I want my kids to have something to look back on so that they can know more about their Mom. So much is documented about them and so little about myself and my hubby. Who knows, maybe I will make an album all about him too if he will let me! I am turning 40 in just a few months and have made some goals towards a better, healthier me. So…I thought perfect, I will combine the two into a mini album. This album concept is inspired by my best Aussie friend, Kellie Winnell and her creation of “Project My Life”. I hope that she doesn’t mind that I am stealing her project title for mine too.

I made some album covers on our laser and backed the cut out hearts with some patterned papers from Sahlin Studio “Create” line. I have 2 inch rings on it now, but the beauty of album covers is that I can pretty much make this album as big and chunky as I want it to be. The inside has a variety of 6×8 page protectors and the monthly dividers from Ali Edwards One Little Word kit.

And here is my first spread. All about starting to strive for a Better Me. I used Sahlin Studio’s new release, “Love Your Body” and some of the bits and pieces from “Better Me” set available in my shop. These 2 lines were made for each other!!

And here is what it looks like in my album.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope that you will follow along on my journey to a better me in my Project My Life album!

Project Life//Jessica’s Pages

 

Good Morning! I realized that it had been awhile since I have shared any of my Project Life® Pages on my Blog, so I thought that I would write up a quick blog post with just photos of some of my latest pages.

All of the spreads below were done using One Little Bird’s collections over at The Lilypad . I just can’t get enough of her awesome designs!

Oh Happy Day

 

I’ll share some other pages next week! Don’t want to share too many at one time.

Have a great weekend!

Project Life//Week 22

Happy Wednesday! I am sorry about the blog hiatus. No other excuse than life has been super busy!

Today I am sharing week 22 of Project Life®. I am still all over the place on my Project Life. I started the year doing monthly and that wasn’t working so I switched back to weekly and I am not loving that now. I am really going to sit and think this thru. What is your approach? My 2015 album is going to be fun for future generations…it is going to be all over the place. And I am ok with that!

So here is week 22…I did this spread for the One Little Bird creative team with her new Frolic line. I adore it! Such beautiful colors and sayings.

I also used my fuse to make the upper right pocket with the 2 triangles and wood veneer stars. For me, the fuse is taking a bit to get down. I am either not letting it get hot enough or it is too hot. Practice makes perfect! I went thru 3 page protectors “practicing” on this spread. Opps!

onelittlebird-frolic-byjessicaupton3

I used a few bits from the Ali Edwards Story kits and some of my new Acrylic ABC’S on this side. And can I just point out that amazingly cute puppy (yes, I said puppy). That is my nephew doggie, Lincoln. He is one big ball of love!!!

That is all! I hope you enjoyed my spread. Have a great rest of your week!
