My good friend, Donna Gibson, announced recently she was selected to be on the Design Team for Becky Higgins. She will primarily be doing digital pages that she will later get printed using Becky's products. I have loved Becky since she was a childless newlywed. I loved her clean style of scrapping...I loved her contributions to Creating Keepsakes magazine and I was lucky to take a couple of classes from her over the years. Anyway, Donna and some other friends and I started talking about Project Life and I got really interested. I think I probably would have been better off doing the digital version BUT no....I have decided to get my hands dirty with paper and glue! Not that digital is easier but at least you don't have the mess and it doesn't take you 30 minutes to find that little jar of buttons that would be perfect, you know?
Anyway, I have finished my cover page as well as my first week spread. I will do my Project Life weekly...at least that's the goal!
So here.....without further ado are my first pages. I can live with them....I think as I get going the flow will be a bit easier and hopefully I can work a bit faster.
This is the cover page. Most of the papers are Oh Scrap! papers. The photo is just a filler photo...want to get a better one of the kids and me....or my husband and me...still need to work on that.
Here is my cover:
The "Make This Year a Great Year" was a digital stamp from Katie Pertiet that I cut out on my Cameo. The arrow shaped journaling card was from the Silhouette store and I just adjusted the arrow a bit. I added a sticker, some twine and a button because I just have a hard time doing flat sometimes!
"'Heart' Life" is from a digital stamp cut on my Cameo, too, by the great Ali Edwards.
I love her hand drawn designs and they cut well on the Silhouette. Isn't it great?
The 2013 is chipboard I had that I painted and embossed with some Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. I let it bubble up in places to give a bit more texture.
"Here" is another cut from the Silhouette Store.
Here is the left side of the page and so sorry for the glare....how DO you get good photos through a page protector???
