I have decided to start project life. I love the whole concept and it takes care of photos which never make it to layouts. Also, I never scrap me or Sid..so this will be a good memory keeper of all of us together!
I got tons of washi tape. I have not used any yet but I am really excited! What I liked about it was the ease to decorate my journaling cards with it. Just a little pop of color!
I got Becky's variety pack of 60 pages, page dividers, big envelope pages and a pack of design G. I am soooo excited about these! Thankfully I could get my order of variety pack in before it was sold out on Amazon. That would have been a bummer!
I got some smash stuff for project life. I really like date stamp. I haven't got any of the other smash embellishments yet. May be I will, not sure. I am thinking of making my own with paper and washi tape...
I got some Martha Stewart home office supplies from Staples on the weekend. I am not a big fan of her but I really liked these. I like the labels! I didn't the manila tags, they were expensive! I plan to order it from amazon, a pack of hundred is 5 dollars. Yeah they don't have the blue reinforced hole but they have a brown one instead. I don't think it matters much and I am pretty sure they must be the same quality as avery is making them for Martha Stewart too. That's my opinion anyways! I liked the page protectors. They were $3.99 plus tax. It is a pack of 10 protectors. Pretty good ! They have flaps on the top of each pocket, I think that's very useful! I just got one set of tabs to see if I will really use them or not. I tested everything with my ph tester and it looks like they are all acid free! Btw...the cute lemon journaling card you see was $1 from Joann's or Michael's..Don't remember and it is acid free!
I got these stamps to stamp on the journaling cards and to stamp on the washi tape. I love it! So cool and economical set with all the latest designs! They are by Paper Smooches and there shipping is very reasonable.
I didn't get Project Life binder but instead got the faux leather album by We R Memory Keepers. I got the black one. It is really nice! It came with 10 page protectors! Becky's folder though wipe-able is paper and I wanted a leather one.
So, I got tons of goodies and yes I have blown my budget for the next two months! I am absolutely excited about starting project life! I am working on last weeks and need to do the journaling tonight. Other than this I am also writing everyday in Mom's one line a day and bi-weekly layouts. Hopefully, I can do more layouts. I plan to do layouts as well when there are a bunch of photos which are scrap worthy! I think will the stresses in life this is the hobby which keeps me going and keeps me sane! I love it! I will be back with my first project life layout tomorrow! Exciting Times! Much Love!
