Keeping up with Project Life

I´m so pleased this year that I managed - so far - to be keeping up fairly good with my PL-album. I just finished my pages for week 1 and 2:

All the filler cards on both these spreads are from Prima´s Epiphany journaling cards 3x4 and 4x6. I made the calendar for this month in the Rhonna Farrer app on my iPhone. The title card for January is made with a thin wood word art and a plastic cover from Studio Calico. Also from Studio Calico are the little pink hearts, the word art sticker in red, acrylic alpha stamps and the journaling ticket. The flair on the title card for week two is from Prima and the letter stickers are from Amy Tangerine/AC. You can also see Mambo word stickers and Dymo labels.

What I´m most pleased about so far is that I managed to make some more journaling on my pages which I realized that I´ve been missing in my 2014 album. I also like the vintage/artsy feel which I hope I will be able to stick to more in this year.

Hugs, Carina

Getting digi with it

Today is my blog day over at the Swedish company Pysseldags and this is what I posted today. There´s some English translation at the bottom of the page.

Scrapbooking var nog INTE det som Will Smith tänkte på när han sjöng raden som jag har lånat som titel till dagens blogginlägg - men det kommer det att bli nu!

I Pysseldags webshop finns det ett stort utbud av digitala stämplar, vilket jag själv tycker är otroligt användbart. Tänk så många möjligheter som öppnar sig: skriva ut i vilken färg du vill, ändra storlek, spegelvända dom (om det är motiv alltså - text kan ju bli liiiite tokigt), skriva ut på olika material....

Idag tänker jag visa hur jag har använt lite olika digitala stämplar till min digitala scrapbooking:

Till layouten ovan har jag använt mig av stämplarna Du rockar mina sockar och Bee Cool. Båda är helt nya digi-stämplar och kommer SNART att läggas ut i shopen. Återkommer med länkarna så fort de är inne!

Till den andra layouten har jag använt stämplarna Stop looking for the magic och Kvinna

I övrigt har jag använt mig av bildredigeringsprogrammet Photoshop Elements och ett digitalt kit - Mixed Media Monthly Jan '15 av Just Jaimee, Little Butterfly Wings, Lynne-Marie och Sissy Sparrows.

I used lots of digital stamps from Pysseldags and they´re all linked in the text. The gorgeous digital kit is The Mixed Media Monthly for January by Just Jaimee, Little Butterfly Wings, Lynne-Marie and Sissy Sparrows available at The Lily-Pad.

Hoppas ni fick massor av inspiration och att ni blev sugna på mer digitala stämplar - de är suveräna!
Ha det gott!

Hope you got some inspiration from today´s blog post!
Hugs, Carina

Project Life pages 2014 - part 2

Hi again!
I´m back with my 2nd and last posting with pages from my 2014 Project Life album. Just like the other time around there´ll be lots of photos and comments:

Week 41: I´ve been using cards from Teresa Collins and Studio Calico for this week. The awesome fall stamp is from Ali Edwards. The date stamp is from Sodalicious and the letters stamped at the left bottom card are from a stamp kit from Graphic 45. You can also see som washitape from SC, Dymo labels and letter stickers from Tim Holtz.

Week 42: The fillercards are from 5th and Frolic core kit (Becky Higgings) and Studio Calico. I used stickers from Heidi Swapp, SimpleStories and Crate papers. You can also see wood veneers and acrylic dots from Studio Calico.

Week 43: All the fillercards are from Studio Calico like the wood veneer. 
The letter stickers are from Doodlebug.

Week 44: I love this page so much even though there´s hardly any journaling or decorations. I made the collage in the bottom left using the Becky Higgins app AND the Rhonna Farrer app.

Week 45: Fillercards from SC (Studio Calico), stamps from Heidi Swapp and some yellow washitape.

Week 46: Fillercards from SC. Stamps from SC, Heidi Swapp and Ali Edwards. Stars from SC, stickers from SimpleStories and some bling.

Week 47: More fillercards from SC. The chipboard from and the journaling spots are also from SC. I used stamps from PinkPaislee and the letter stickers are from October Afternoon.

Week 48: The last week I´m showing for 2014! The fillercards and the large oval journaling stickers are from SC. The small journaling tags are from Heidi Swapp. The stars and the acrylic dots are also from SC. I can´t remember where the washitape is from. I made the title card using stamps from Hero Arts and stickers from SC.

Thanks for reading the whole post and I would really love if you would take that little extra minute to share what you think about my pages!

Until next time...../Carina
