Project Life Layout Share - April 2015


In the previous post I shared the start of my April project life layouts.  

I finished the rest of April and will share them with you in this post. 


I filmed my complete April project life layouts and inserts. You can watch it below. 



Emily's school band had a road trip to the Dallas Meyerson to play in the Windband Festival. 

I made an extra insert using this older Pink Paislee page protector to document the trip. 



These pockets are fun to decorate. 



I used some of my new Ali Edwards story stamps on these layouts. 

The Here We Go stamp below is from the Go stamps. I love this picture that I captured from the truck side mirror of the kids loading up on the buses.  


I added the adventure definition to the picture below. This comes from the Ali Edwards Go stamp set as well. 




I kept it simple, but I love the pictures that I captured of this fun day. 




Per my previous blog post, I used the Echo Park Here and Now collection and some stamps, inks, Cameo die cuts, and embellishments from my stash. 



The card below was fun to make. I cut a tag from some patterned paper. I wrapped some Aqua twine around the bottom and added a sticker and enamel dot. Fun!

This family selfie was taken before we left on the band road trip. 

I have been trying to capture family selfies each month. It is so worth it!



Here is my filler card. I just made it using some of the paper and a sticker from the collection kit. 

I try to leave one pocket open just for making filler cards. They are fun to create!



For the card below, I create my collages in PicFrame and then put them into the Collect App. 

For this card, I just added some Elle's Studio pieces. 

These pics captured Emily during her band solo contest. 




For this side of the layout, I pulled some Becky Higgins Project Life overlays. 




The overlays were 4x6, but I cut them down to fit my pocket cards. 

I loved this one for the collage pics of flowers. I love gardening.

I just placed the overlay onto a piece of patterned paper and added some striped washi tape down the left side. The "so fab" die cut arrow was cut from my Silhouette cameo. 




My filler card below is just an acetate quote card placed over some striped patterned paper.

The slide frame on the card of Emily on her trampoline was made from a Papertrey Ink stamp set called Monthly Moments Slide Frame. 

I loved capturing this picture of Emily on her trampoline, taking a break from homework. I captured it from the bedroom window. Us Mom's have to be sneaky when capturing moments!



I captured some pics of my springs crafts and my trip to a scrapbook retreat. 

I just added a Dear Lizzy puffy heart sticker to the card on the left. 

For the card on the right, I used a Martha Stewart office tag and added the "fun" letter stickers and enamel dot. 


For the card below, I cut up and added another Becky Higgins overlay to some patterned paper. 

This saying was perfect for the pics and text message that I captured from Emily while I was away at my scrapbook retreat. I love capturing text messages and using them in my layouts. We will get a laugh out of these in the future!




Each month, I have been adding in this pocket page protector (size is roughly 7x9.5) with fun pics from the month that don't need any journaling. I just think they are fun to add in to my layouts. 

I added some washi tape to the binding of the protector for added color. That idea came from Kelly Purkey and I love it!



I also added a tab and used a Studio L2E stamp. I have been using these tabs on these inserts each month and just writing in the month. Super simple, but fun!


Here is the backside of the insert. 

Fun pictures with great memories.



This completes my April project life layouts. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing the layouts. 

I hope you will subscribe for future posts. 

Hugs, Shelly

Project Life Layout Share


I worked on my April 2015 project life today. 



I got through the first week of April and completed an Easter layout. 

Even though I don't have the whole month done, I thought that I would go ahead and share what I completed. 

I used a collection called Here & Now by Echo Park and some stamps, inks, and embellishments from my stash. 

Here is my April monthly card. 

 I just layered some washi tape, stickers, and stitching. 




Here are some close-up's of the pockets. 

I am still using and loving the collect app on my iPhone for documenting our memories. 




The small explore sticker on the bluebonnet picture came from Paper House and they are called Snap Shots. 

I colored the die cut Good Stuff arrow in Heidi Swapp primrose color shine. 




For a small touch of embellishments on the card below, I added some striped washi tape and some enamel dots. 

I captured what it looks like when I set up my lights and cameras to film cooking videos on my Shelly's Home Life YouTube channel. 



Our pug, Mac, at the vet. He is so handsome!

For this card, I just cut some patterned paper in a banner shape and added the today die cut. 




During the school year, Emily loved to watch the YouTube channel called Good Mythical Morning. 

These guys are so funny! I just had to capture her eating breakfast and watching the show on her iPad. 

I layered some patterned paper, pink heart sticker, and the fun die cut from my cameo.  I also added a striped arrow at the bottom too. 




For our Easter layout, I used a Becky Higgins Design H Page Protector.  



For the journaling card, I used letter stickers from the collection and stitched through them. 

I stamped and cut out the yellow camera and added a couple of stickers to the bottom right corner. 




I love creating collage pics and then adding an element in the middle.

This sticker is from the Echo Park collection. 

These are fun pics of Emily in the bluebonnets on our family farm. 




Here is the other side. 


I colored the fantastic day die cut with some Heidi Swapp color shine in Mustard. 

I love this picture of Emily playing basketball with her Daddy and G-Pa (grandfather). 



For this food pic, I added a sticker to the bottom and then I cut a tag in half and added another sticker, YUM letters, stitching, and an enamel dot. 



I will be back to share more April layouts. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing these and will subscribe for future posts. 

Hugs, Shelly
