Project Life | Week 18

This week I decided to use lots of cutting files for my journal cards and keep my journal entries on the back of each journal card.

This particular week, I did not take 7 pictures, only 5 so I added 2 extra pictures of Caro's party and the decorations I helped her make for her Cinco de Mayo/Graduation party.
Each of my cutting files tells a story.  All files on the left side are from the Silhouette online store.
 The two cutting files to the left are from the Silhouette online store while the two to the right are mainly from Lettering Delights.

Father's Day Tie Box | Dilo En Español

It is time for Challenge #2 over at Dilo En Español/Say it in Spanish!

And this time the challenge is to celebrate Father's day.

I created this box so that my grand daughters can give their Dad a gift in.

The exciting part is that I will be able to deliver this box to them to give to their Dad just in time!

I used the sets "Mi Bebé" and "Felicidades Bebé"  The cutting files is from the Silhouette online store and the tags a die set from PPI.

Hop on over to see the awesome inspiration by my DT sisters and to see if you are the winner of  the last challenge.  Oh on to take a peak at this challenge's prize!    HERE

Project Life | Week 17

Week 17 marks my birthday celebration so I got a little bit carried away with dies and cutting files do adorn/embellish my journal cards.

Here is week 17 with an additional 6x12 insert to add all my journaling.  Although it is private to my blog, it is not private for my family to read.  I wanted to show how you can add lots of journaling by using 6x12 page protector.

Below is the spread or layout with the insert flipped to the other side.  Here I just added lots of photos.

Left page:
Used lots of washi/paper tape to create a "spacer" card.  I was super excited to have found Disney paper tape... I just could not get my hands on the paper tape that has all or just Mickey's hands on it.
 Here I used two cutting files from the Silhoutte online store and a chipboard embellishment.  I additionally created a pull tab with the red hearts paper tape since I do have journaling behind or under the protector.  FYI Page protectors have the opening on the other side or when yo use them as the right page.  In order to be able to pull this journal card out I cut, using a blade, a slit across being careful no to cut too much.

Right page:
More paper tape.  The 3D glasses is a die from QuicKutz.  The camera die is from MFT.
 Key and round sentiment are from the Silhouette online store and the "buckle up" is a die from QuicKutz.

Supplies in addition to QuicKutz glasses and seat belt:
