Project Life Week 21 - Studio Calico Card Kit

Finally found some time to sit down and complete some blog posts that I have sitting here. I am completely caught up with Project Life as of last week, so I have a few weeks to share with you over the next few days
First up is Week 21

For this layout I have used the Studio Calico Neverland Card Kit
The weather we have been having here lately is shocking! So these photos were again taken in bad lighting outside - I definitely think its time to invest in a light box of some sort - any suggestions ?

The left hand side features some stamping and mist splatters, both of which don't show up very well in this light. I am trying to go back to the less is more approach so have mainly stuck to enamel dots for embellishing and those Alphas I AM IN LOVE!! The Hello Friday card is from a recent card swap I participated in.

In this photo you can see a slight shimmer effect on the journalling. This is where I have used the stamp that came in the kit along with some silver momento ink.

Again more shimmery silver ink, on this card I used the lid of the mist bottle that was part of the kit and used it like a stamp all over the card to highlight the month and in random places.

For the right hand side I've used the High Five card for the title card. This came as a vertical 4x6 card but I have cut it down to fit it on the horizontal card with some washi strips. Very little embellishing on this side also. I think I much prefer the less cluttered look for the moment (I know I will change my mind in weeks to come) The mask I have used on the Demo Day card was also part of the kit. And yes, very sad that only 1 person showed up for my Project Life Demo.

A close up of the banners I cut out for this pocket were pieces of washi strips that i stuck onto white card to make them stand out more.

I hope you have enjoyed checking out this layout. I was certainly a lot of fun to create.

Project Life is a concept designed by Becky Higgins. It is a range that works anyway you want it to. You don't have to embellish your layouts or use any extra products like I do. You can easily record an album full of memories with just a Core Kit, bulk pack of page protectors and a 12x12 Album. I purchase all my core products from Craft House - Exclusive stockist for Australia and New Zealand.

  1. Great layout! I love that you've used my Friday card swap card. :) It gives me a little thrill when I see everyone's swap cards being used in their layouts!
