This being my first month on the design team I had no idea what to expect when my package arrived. Needless to say it was a bit surreal and oh so exciting to grab that box when it arrived.
I had so much fun with all of the products and made two Project Life® spreads with the contents. For my main kit only spread (Copper Mountain) I worked with my week 50 photos, the one where my daughter turned 6. As you can see below I went super sized for the right hand side and used this months digital template. In fact this spread has several digital elements mixed in with some of my most favorite cards from the main kit. I mean that heart card, it was a must use for sure as was the black quote card, it paired perfectly with my photo for the design team announcement.
I interviewed my daughter six months ago on her half birthday and I loved her responses to the questions so on her birthday I asked her the same questions and these were her answers. It was the perfect pair for the large photo and the puffy asterisks were the perfect accent to use here. It also really helped tie this side of the spread to the left because the colors of the asterisks match the heart card perfectly. Not to mention the adorable wood veneer in the kit, I just love the font especially the little flouncy bits on some of the letters.
For my second spread I used the two, yes you heard that correct we now have two add-ons for the Project Life® kits starting in January (Union Meadows and Storm King). I loved the colors and they just tied in so well with my Week 49 photos and our trip to Lake Tahoe. This spread below uses elements from both of the add-ons.
There were so many great quote cards included in the two add-ons and they worked so well with the photos they ended up being a great compliment.
This watercolor card had to happen for the title, the blue just matched so well with my Lake Tahoe picture and helped draw the blue to the right side for some balance. I just stamped the dates in gold ink and added a few more puffy asterisks and it was done, super fast and easy.
I loved the hashtag cards and really loved incorporating them in. Studio Calico must be inside my head when they design these kits because they always seem to have just the right cards for my lifestyle, its just such a great match.
There are also some very, very cute shop items this month that I made sure to pick up for myself.
I mean how cute is this little Valentine's Day pack...you can find it here.
And these super cute calendar cards that Marcy designed, you get four of each so you'll have more than enough to included them each week if you wanted to. I will definitely be adding these into my project life spreads for 2014.
If you prefer to label your spreads by week number, there is even a super cute option for that as well. Also designed by Marcy these week number cards are a perfect option.
I cannot wait to continue on with Project Life® and cannot wait to see what amazing things Studio Calico has in store for us with their kits. After seeing what they did with January, I expect really great things. If you haven't yet subscribed now is the perfect time, you can do so right here.
