Scrapbook Layout

I am sharing a "double spread" scrapbook layout - with one side being a full 12 x 12 page and the other being a Project Life photo pocket pages. I shared this for this first time on this blog post and I am still really liking this way of scrapbooking. I am able to do 12 x 12 layouts, which I love but still include more pictures and more stories quickly by using the divided photo pocket pages. 

Full Layout
 Supplies Used: Patterned Paper-Becky Higgins, Echo Park, My Mind's Eye; Letter Stickers - Studio Calico and American Crafts; Wood Veneer: Studio Calico; Brads & Flair - October Afternoon; Journaling Cards - Becky Higgins' Clementine Core Kit; Becky Higgins Design G Photo Pocket Page; Other - various punches and heart paper clip
Close Up: 12 x 12 layout
Close Up: Photo Pocket Page

Thanks for stopping by - Happy Friday!

Summer of 69 and Project Life

So last week, I completely did not meet my goal of blogging at least once a week...Well, I was sick and so were my boys so I guess that is a good enough excuse. Nonetheless, I am back sharing one of my layouts from the Studio Calico Summer of 69 kit and some Project Life layouts.  I currently working on my March Project Life - yes, March - I am behind but determined to get "caught up".  The good thing about Project Life is it is easy to get back on track - especially if you keep it simple, which is my plan. You will definitely see simplicity in my March layouts I have completed so far. I am about 2/3 done and hope to finish the rest soon.

First, here is my Summer of 69 layout. It actually uses a lot of items from October Afternoon's Woodland Park in addition to the kit. 

Supplies: Patterned Paper - October Afternoon and American Crafts; Chipboard, date sticker, and die cuts - October Afternoon; Letter Stickers - Doodlebug Design and October Afternoon; Twine: WeRMemory Keepers; Punches - Stampin'Up and Martha Stewart; Crystals - Prima; Mist - Studio Calico; Other - Shipping Tag
And, now here are my project life pages for March. I am using the Cobalt Kit and keeping it fairly simple this month:
