A Week with " PROJECT LIFE WEEK 7 "

Week 7 is by far my most loved layout! I am using bright colours, mists and stitching and just LOVE how this has all come together!! I used the brand new  Glitz " Colour me Happy" ( a little ironic)  paper pad, Give a Girl a Blog "Best Friends" stamp set, and a couple of Evalicious stamps and Heidi Swapp colour shine mists which I totally adore!!

♥ This Studio Calico frame was perfect for this picture of my son and husband, as he just returned from a 3 week work stint ♥ 

♥ I added some stitching detail to edge of some photos ♥

♥ I cut some hearts from the American Crafts glitter tape ♥

Until next time.. Bernii xx

A week with "PROJECT LIFE WEEK 6"

Hellooo Helloooooo...

So for this weeks layout I dipped into my Echo Park " So Happy Together" paper pad.. The hexie's is what drew me to this collection and the fact that my brand new  Evalicious stamp set arrived on my door step!! I ordered the whole stamp collection as they are PERFECT for Project Life layouts and I am itching to using these stamps over and over again.
 I went for a more simple look with lashings of colour through out instead. So working from the white grid cards and adding colour to them.

Thanks again and until next time.. Bernii xx

A week with "PROJECT LIFE WEEK 5"

Well this week was a tough one for me to complete!! 

For some time I have been waiting or the new Studio Calico Project life kit to arrive and when it did arrive I was SUPER excited, but I think it was for the wrong reasons ha ha .. Don't get me wrong I have always admired Studio Calico products, but after completing this weeks lay out I know for sure I am a girl that LOVES colour, texture, paint and lots of little details!! To me SC is a simpler more muted palette .. So even though I am not totally happy with the overall  layout, it has helped me realise more and more my style.. 

This is week was another really busy week with LOTS of "goings on" so I added a few extra inserts here to help fit it all in . I LOVE inserts as it helps to break up the pages and add some extra interest . So here is a peek at my week 5 Project life.. 
♥ Overall week 5 LO with extra inserts to help fit it all in ♥

♥ Right hand side, I also took the time to snap some picture of "real life" events in my local area ♥

♥ So I have added in an extra insert to help me include all the extra pictures ♥

Thanks so much and until next time .. Bernii xx

A week with "PROJECT LIFE week 3 and 4 "

Week 3 

So slowly slowly, I am starting to find my groove with the whole Project Life concept, and am finding that using paper form the same collections the easiest and quickest way to get a week complete. For week 3 I used an older  Glitz  6 x 6 paper pad and some extra embellies. I even managed to use some tags that I nabbed of my new shoes. That is a great part of project Life , as it is an awesome place to use all the bits and bobs you save to use some where.
I am missing misting , painting and general textural feel that I love to scrap  with, so am thinking I will slowly start to incorporate that into my PL layouts.

Right hand side of week 3. I even managed to use a Charms creations heart and the actual tags from my  new shoes. 

I used an extra sleeve in there to show my daughters present to her father. It is a perfect fit and  I will love to look back on it in years to come. 
Week 4 
So week 4, I LOVE!! I am totally loving PROJECT LIFE ( yep I needed to yell that!! ) I love how I have already lost count at the times my children  my son Hunter especially , has pulled down the album to look at the previous weeks!! love love love...
Ok so for week 4, I ended up using Amy Tangerines papers and establishment's and certainly  love the bright colours. We had a lot going on this week in our household, so I had loads of pictures to fit in and this paper line worked so well, and really did not make the page look to busy!!

I added another instert into this weeks LO, as I wanted to show off my son's very first painting!! 

♥ Loving the new American Craft glitter tape ♥

I added in some flair from A Piece of Cake designs!! 

Well that's it for now, and I hope you like what you see ..

Until next time.. Bernii xx

A week with " ADVENTURE "

So a few weeks back I received the most STUNNING collection of papers and embellies from the new Heidi Swapp collections!! I orderd both the "Serendipity" and the "Colour Pop" ranges and I literally squealed in delight and excitement when I clapped  eyes on the "Colour Pop" range in particular! The vibrant colours of pink, yellow turquoise, black and peach mixed with chevron ad polka dots makes my heart skip a beat when I see them . I LOVE colour and lots of it so I can not wait to play!!
But before I am allowing myself to play, I am hoping to use up some of the previous Heidi Swapp goodies so I have decided to play along with the 8 week ADVENTURE that Heidi Swapp is presenting on her blog with her fabulous design team. You can find the first week steps here.

So I have pretty much followed step by step, but I will be going back through and adding paint splatters, sequins and more little touches at the end to help tie the album all together.
I added a sweet flair from A piece of Cake Designs.
This is the "Characters" of my life section. I just added a little info about the "right now" with each of us.
 ♥ I added some old Heidi Swapp ghost letters to each of our pages ♥
 ♥ My cute as pie son Hunter♥ 

I am loving this album so far and really enjoying the process! Sometimes it is just really nice to follow along on a class and not have to think about the next step :) 

Thanks so much .. Until next time ...Bernii xx
