Project Life | 2014 Week 7 & 8
I haven’t been around here much lately. A lot of things going on at home. Good things of course, nothing to be alarmed of. Oh, just so you know, I’ve quit my job two weeks ago, taking a short break from work and now staying at home. I’ve been loving every minute of my time, spending precious time with both my boys especially Ethan.
Anyway, the day is finally here for the full reveal of Studio Calico April’s Bluegrass Farm kits! I think this has been my favorite time of the month for as long as I can remember. I’m always excited for the reveal and share the amazingness of Studio Calico kits month after month.
So, without further ado, here are my Week 7 and Week 8 Project Life spreads using the Bluegrass Farm Project Life Kit, PL add-ons Gertrude, Tabasco and the add-on stamp set Nelly.
For Week 7, I used only the Bluegrass Farm Project Life Kit, together with coordinated digital printable Bluegrass Farm Printable by In A Creative Bubble, Hello Forever and Printable Labels by Hello Forever.
What I love about this month’s kit is the cork alphas and the cards! I’ve practically used up almost all the alphas on this spread. The size is just perfect for Project Life. I do hope Studio Calico will make more of this in their future kits.
The typewriter on this week’s title card was cut out from one of the 3×4 cards. I just added a strip of the banner sticker and crop alphas to complete the card.
The mini flair button is also my favorite because of it’s size. It makes a great accent on the PL card.
See what I mean on the cork alphas? They are seriously awesome!
And here’s my Week 8 using a mix of Bluegrass Farm Project Life add-ons Gertrude, Tabasco and the add-on stamp set Nelly, together with digital printable by In A Creative Bubble, Hello Forever and Printable Labels by Hello Forever.
I’ve used a lot of whites in this spread, so that it gives a pop of colors from the embellishments from both Gertrude & Tabasco. The white background cards that I used, they are the 4×3 and 4×6 grid cards, which are my all time favorite staple items from Studio Calico. I have stocked them up for at least a few months worth because I know I will use them often.
Oh oh, I have to tell you that I absolutely love the white office envelope that came in Gertrude add-on! The size fits perfectly in the 4×6 pocket, how cool is that?! When I first received this kit and saw this, I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it. And so I decided to use it as my Week 8 title card, layering it lightly with the printable label and shapes. I completed the card with bits and pieces of puffy star sticker, gold star sequins and white mini and cork alphas.
If you’ve noticed, I adhered the Journal Card Die Cut by Barbara Picinich onto a 4×6 grid card before I added the photo and embellishments. I could do with more of the stars puffy stickers! Super LOVE them!
I’m a lover of enamel dots and I’m thrilled it came in the Tabasco add-on! Oh, and that cork die cut shape, it’s adorable!
What I also love about Tabasco is the pie chart die cut. It’s so colorful, bright and cheerful!
You see what I told about my love for enamel dots? *laugh* I went overboard and filled up the centre piece of the pie chart with a whole lot of enamel dots. I love how it turned out.
I hope you’ve managed to grab what you wanted on the add-ons. I promise you’ll love them as much as I do.
