Project Life: Week 16

I had the best time doing my layouts for Week 16.  I found a packet in my stash of some very bright and cheerful Doodlebug papers with a packet of coordinating buttons.  Don't remember buying it...don't remember having it...but now that I have my new paper organizing system that Debbie set up for me...well, I'm finding stuff!

I did quick layouts the last couple of weeks with pre-made journaling cards.  This week I decided to make my own things with the few sheets of paper I had.  I did some stamping , some die cutting with both my Silhouette and Cuttlebug and added a little of this and a little of that! :)

Here is the left side:

The top right is a template from the Lily Pad shop and can be seen HERE.  I love these collage templates and they print out beautifully!
The little filler card below was made with Stampin' Up Embosslits. So cute....they cut and emboss at the same time.  I used some wire I bought a looooooong time ago to wind around the bodies and make little antennas.
I found some letter stickers from Paper Pizazz which are who knows how old but I loved using for my "Week 16".  They look like the label tapes that were so popular a while back.  Again...I used stuff in my stash.  Love that!  I added some Stickles to the butterfly and then put some big rickrack on the bottom of the card.  That was also from my vast stash of ribbons and trims!

The card below was cut with my Silhouette from a design by Michelle Currie that I purchased in the Silhouette Online Store.  Isn't that cut out chevron adorable? 
And I used some of those cute buttons from the Doodlebug pack I had and added a little embroidery floss.  Can't do naked buttons, of course!

Here is the right side layout:
Again, the bottom right photo is from a template from the Lily Pad store.

I stamped the camera with an Amy Tangerine stamp from the set "Aspire" and added some Glossy Accents.
And this little journaling card was cut out with  my Cameo, too, and is a design by Lori Whitlock.
The arrow stamp came from the same Amy Tangerine set.

It was all so much fun for me....I just had the best time and it was so satisfying to find things that I had that worked well for me.

I also did an insert page which I will post tomorrow...and then on to Week 17!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Fun photos from the cotton candy to the carousel and more. Like the Butterflies.

  2. Bravo, Susan! Gosh, how long does it take you to create a post like this about your layouts, with all the labels and such too? Labor intensive, I think. But fun. It's all good!

  3. way to keep up, loving your nice clean craft room :-)

  4. You're making a good case for a paper PL. =) You could make every page entirely different.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate the time it took you to leave me a note and I will enjoy reading it. Happy Crafting!
