Project Life: 2014 Title Page Album Three


Well folks, I'm on my third Studio Calico Handbook, so that means this is my third title page for the year. Last year, I had three albums, with three title pages and three end pages that all flowed together. This year, I'm skipping the end pages. I thought about having a page of 2x2s at the end of each album AND the start of each album but ultimately decided - nope!


Yes, I'm pro-selfie and why not! This album is about me. Of course I'd have lots of photos of myself. Just like when I get married (whenever that may be) my album title pages will have photos of me AND my husband because the album will be about our life, not just my life. I saw selfie away. Though, I'll be honest, I really don't like that word.


I stuck with my beloved 2x2 squares, they are my favourite way to add a bunch of photos. These are from Simple Stories. I'm also glad I decided to include the "dreams are for chasing" print by Kal Barteski. Studio Calico was awesome enough to include these in peoples orders a few months ago to promote their Scripted class. It's been hanging on my wall near my front door but rotated wall art a couple weeks ago and it was either in my album, or thrown in a folder hidden away - album it is. I cut it down from 8.5x11 to fit it into a 6x8 page protector.

Other supplies used were a variety of cards from the Studio Calico Project Life monthly kits. I'm going for this whole fearless scrapbooking thing, I'm actually cutting up cards and using them instead of letting them sit in my hoard box. Case in point the XOXO card by LifeLovePaper and the "I love you..." and ampersand card by Studio Calico. Cut cut cut. I also cut down a couple patterned papers by Glitz Design and included a hot pink heart stapled onto a transparency to give it a floating effect. The "I love this life" is a little card I made by printing out a Sunshine edition digital card onto vellum and then adding the alpha stickers on top. "Magic is something you make" was created by Elise Blaha Cripe, I printed onto kraft cardstock. The "here we go" wood veneer card was by Amy Tangerine and Kal Barteski for Two Peas in a Bucket (RIP).

And that's it!

  2. I just stumbled upon your blog and I love it! I've thought about doing a PL but I'm in college and always thought that PL was for people married with children. Thank you for changing that perspective and I love all of your layouts!

  3. Wow - great pages! I love your style. This new front page is really awesome. I'm married with now kids too. I'm really happy to see more projects without kids. Sometimes kids are ok and I like the projects but I'm happy to see other projects too.
