*New***Stuck On U Sketches***Project Life Challenge

Hi Everyone!
Thanks for stopping by to see the latest and greatest Project Life challenge from SOUS

This is a fun challenge, so easy to implement into your PL, here's my week 16 spread:

I chose a 4x6 diagonal striped filler card from the Project Life Seafoam core kit. I also created my own stripes using patterned paper scraps on the upper left 4x6 filler card. The patterned paper and stickers are My Mind's Eye. My journal card is an index card I cut down to fit the pocket, so you can see how easy it is to create a pocket page layout with non-PL specific product.

Don't forget to play along with this challenge or any of the May SOUS challenges for a chance to win a prize from our May sponsor

Scrap Shotz May Kit Reveal!!!!

This post is coming late, my apologies, this month's kit reveal conincided with the Scrap Shotz NSD crop so I was a "mad scrapper" working on projects for both events.

The May Scrap Shotz kit features the "Suave" line by Authentique:

Click on the link above to see the kit details. 

This first project is based on our creative team sketch created by Jess Duerksen and just happens to be my May Design Team challenge sample:

The "good times" title is one of the new Tim Holtz shadow press embossing folders that I inked with distress ink and then ran through my Vagabond. The green dots are made with a Tim Holtz stencil and Art Anthology dimensional paint. My May Design Team challenge uses the stencil so feel free to click on the link and play along with us at the Scrap Shotz forum :).

These bookmarks feature the Taylored Expressions "Mark Your Spot" stamp  and the Tim Holtz Frameworks die in addition to the May Scrap Shotz kit. I die cut the tags with a Tim Holtz die and inked with vintage photo Distress Ink.

This layout showcases our May feature product, the die cut stars. I used the "super" star as a mask to mist over the patterned paper background, I applied Glossy Accents to the letters of the "super" die cut as well as filling in the negative space on the misted die cuts themselves.

The mini-hexagon border is a die-version die?? I can't find it in the store so I am guessing, please email me if you want to know for sure and I will get you the info asap :). This is a super simple card but it does the job! The sentiment is peel-off words from Elizabeth Craft.

This paper was perfect for some nature photos from the Coulee running behind our home and the kit alphas add the perfect pop of colour!

You can see what the entire design team created in the Scrap Shotz Gallery

Thanks for taking a look :))

Now on to our Project Life challenge:

and here is my week 15 layout:

{supplies: Project Life Seafoam core kit; wood veneer unknown; washi tape Teresa Collins & unknown from stash}

It is tough to see from the photo but the journal card and the lower left filler card are both grid cards from Project Life core kits. I was in need of another filler card and made my own "grid" with washi tape for the top right 4x6 card. I like the soft blues and gray with the brighter colours in the photos.
It's fun pulling out some not often used items from my stash like the wood veneer bicycle and the washi tape. I also accented a few spaces on my homemade grid card with Elizabeth Craft Designs glitter dots and finished off the "title" card with Thickers and a Dear Lizzy roller stamp.

Oh how I long for some better weather to inspire me to take more photos for my PL, if you're feeling like me and also feeling like you have the "same old" kind of photos each week, don't get discouraged and give up. Just choose a few photos that speak to you and fill the rest of the pockets with journaling from yourself or even other family members
If that still doesn't inspire you to keep going with your PL, embrace this SOUS PL challenge and go back to our previous PL challenges if you haven't done them and incorporate them in your spread as your filler cards. You'll be happy you stuck with it by the end of the year, I promise!!

Thanks for stopping by!
