Hello! Naomi here with an installment of Project Life! One of the many things I love about project life is that you can make it however you want to make it. You can make it very simple with journaling and pictures, or you can jazz it up a bit!
I'm always a fan of making things pretty, IF and only IF I have the time. This week, I chose to add a lot of Crate's Sleigh Ride elements to my project life. It was very Christmas themed this week because most of what we did related to Christmas! I used a mixture of some of my standard project life journaling cards, and Sleigh Ride's patterned paper and embellishments. Also, I added some washi tape, which is very project life friendly for those quick, extra touches! I love the Chevron background tone on tone paper, so I started with that. I used some tags on the bottom left, put a fabric brad on each, and that served as the spot to put my reindeer tags I made with the kids and their fingerprints this week. I used some Ali Edwards brushes on my pictures, which I really enjoy now that I print my own pictures for project life (I just bought an Epson printer, and I LOVE it!). It's much easier for me to stay caught up!
On the top right, I used some of the gold dotted vellum from the Sleigh Ride collection (LOVE!!). I sewed it around my paper, and added some gold glitter underneath and a Crate chipboard snowflake to the top. An easy dress-up to the layout! I added some chipboard letters at various spots and then I was done!
Hope to have inspired you to go and get caught up on your latest project life production!! Happy Holidays Crate Followers!
