ahoy!

Hi there everyone! I hope you all had a nice summer. I was busy with so much, but back to the grind and back to projectlifing! 


I was given the chance to work with some goodies from the Sweet Stamp Shop this month and absolutely fell in love with the stuff! If you haven't already, do yourself a favor and cheek it out. They've got the cutest stamp sets and also a project life kit that comes with cards, stamps, and embellishments. The best part is no commitment so you can play along as you please. 

ahoy kit

 

I'm catching up so much with this kit! Here is one page I made, and there will be more to come during the month. (Also be sure to check out the Sweet Stamp blog which has got a process video I did while making the page.)

2011 Week 27

see you soon! 

And leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a kit of your very own! Nicole will be choosing one lucky winner from one of the design team's blogs!

Do It Yourself Thickers Album

I saw a few posts about people making their own thickers album, either by sewing a seam down the middle of a 12x12 page protector by machine or hand. Both of those ideas seemed a bit too intense for me, so I took a peek through my stash and found my overflowing collection of brads. 

 

I measured two spots, both at the six inch vertical middle, three inches from the top and three from the bottom. I pierced each spot. Then i inserted my brads, separated them, and put in the thickers. I'm in love already. I can tell the time I've spent making the album will be made up when working on pages as I won't have to fight with the plastic to put them back into the cellophane. 

 

Here is a video showing the process:
