Project Life 2015 Week 13

This week, I was working with the April 2015 Pocket Kit and Glam Bag from Take 10 Kits. The colors matched perfectly with my weekly title card from my Project 52 kit! These pages are all about "happy accidents," although I was not so happy when the accidents happened! Here is the left side:

I used the stamps from the kits to add a little something extra to the Live the life... card, then colored in the stamped image with some water color. The only extras from my stash that I added to this side were the gold labels (Studio Calico), the rub-ons (Pinkfresh), the raindrop die cuts, the gold letter stickers, enamel dots, and sequins (CTMH). I also used some label stickers that I print and cut with my Silhouette. Here is the right side:

This is the side with the "happy accidents." I wanted to add the same stamped, watercolor images to some of the cards on this side, and when I reached across my table, I spilled the bottle of paint. It totally soaked the card on the bottom left of the page, along with the picture - eek! I had to trash the card, but I was able to save the picture, thank goodness! You can still kind of see the paint on the picture, but I covered it with a sticker from my Glam Bag. I also got some paint on the butterfly card, so I trimmed it down to cut the paint off, then placed it on top of one of the other cards from the Pocket Kit. I actually like the way this card turned out! The last oops was on my report card picture. I also had a drip of paint on it, so I covered that with a bit of washi from the kit and a wooden embellishment that I stamped the "like" image onto.

I just love all the bits of goodness from the April kits! Here is the April 2015 Pocket Kit:

So much goodness! And at just $10 plus shipping, they are a really great deal! I still have lots left over, that I am sure you will see in an upcoming post. Feel free to use the code take10 for 10% off your entire purchase!

Project Life 2015 Week 12, plus an exciting announcement!

I finally finished up my Week 12 pages. This was another busy week, as I think most weeks in the spring can be, so I had to use an insert. I used my Project 52 week card, but the rest of the cards either came from my Studio Calico March kit - Odyssey, or my Paper Issues March swag bag. Many of the embellishments came from both of those sources as well, plus a bit more. I really cannot stick to one kit for my pages! Here is week 12, left, plus the Design H insert:

And the right side:

Ok, so on to my exciting announcement! I recently applied to the Take 10 Kits creative team, and I was selected! So excited to work with a creative bunch of gals and with some fun kits. My week 13 is on my desk right now, and I will be posting it to their facebook page on Monday for my first post! You can find them on the web here and facebook here.

I would also love for you to join us on the Take 10 Kits Facebook page! Thanks for looking, let me know if you have any questions about products or techniques!
