*New Project Life Challenge* Stuck On U Sketches

Happy Easter and welcome to the newest SOUS Project Life challenge...

I have quite a number of stamps but don't seem to use them much so I had lots to choose from for this challenge and really enjoyed using them on a PL spread.

supplies: Project Life Seafoam core kit, Elle's Studio 4x6 journal card, MME washi tape Kate&Co; stamps Tim Holtz and Pink Paislee; alphas Thickers AC

I have not been very motivated to pull out my camera lately, maybe it's the never ending winter so I have not had very many photos to use. That's where these challenges are so useful as I automatically have a pocket filled in my spread. The journal card I added strips of washi tape to uses a Pink Paislee stamp that says "captured moments photographs. I also added a couple of the Tim Holtz # stamps to the title card and just like that, DONE!
I just started a photography class over at Big Picture Classes so I should have more photos for future spreads ;)).

Don't forget to link us up to your project at SOUS for this challenge or any of the April challenges for a chance to a $30 certificate to their shop from this month's sponsor:

Scrap Shotz April Kit Reveal!!

Hello...I am a little behind on my posting so this reveal happened a couple of weeks ago now. The April Scrap Shotz kit featured the super popular "Plus One" line by Amy Tan for American Crafts.

The kit is sold out so if you want to ensure you get your hands on a monthly kit sign up as a kit subscriber!
On to my projects for this month, this is a fun line to work with, lots of great colours and patterns.

This black and white paper is a great neutral for the happy cardstock colours in this kit.

Those honeycomb die cuts are a fabulous Tim Holtz Frameworks die. The today clip is magnetic and since I did not adhere it to the cardstock I can take it off and use it on my fridge ;))

The house pattern and top grey strip are pre-printed on this paper, I added the "love" and "...happy place" journal cards and accented with another Frameworks die including using a couple of the inside pieces.
This was a fun layout, I used rub-ons, journal cards, flowers and a chalkboard label from the kit in addition to the kit patterned paper. I finished it off with a wee bit of hand stitching, mist and a sweep of gelatos on the corners.
A couple of different patterns on this accented by a pop of yellow and those great SC stars from the kit. It's hard to see that I added a camera rub-on on the chalkboard label and accented with one of the kit gems.
This is my favorite layout from this month, just punched a bunch of circles with a 1 3/4" and 2" punch and scattered around the black card stock. I used the white pen included in the kit to pen stitch around some of the circles and embellished some circles with the kit embellies and the add on fabric brads.

Some quick and easy cards finished off my projects for the month.
You can check out what the entire design team created at the Scrap Shotz gallery.

Thanks for looking!

Stuck On U Sketches Project Life Challenge

It's time for the latest SOUS Project Life challenge and we have a new sponsor for this month's challenge as well. More on that later ;).

This month's challenge is:

and what exactly is that? It is this:

Here is my page:
The top note shape is the frame on the filler card in the upper left. It is a piece of Fancy Pants chipboard from "The Good Life" collection. I haven't taken many photos the last few weeks so I combined two weeks on this and added some extra journaling reviewing what's kept us all occupied the last few weeks. I don't stress about not having many photos, I actually like that I've included more journaling on this page.

I hope you'll play along with our challenge, we're thrilled to have 
as our sponsor this month. Complete this Project Life challenge or any of the April SOUS challenges and you have a chance to win $30 to spend at Scrapbook Circle
