Sahin Designs CT | Throwback projects

In September the Sahin Designs collection Throwback hit the Lily-pad store! I used it to make a layout about how this year was the first time my daughter could vote in an election. I used a photo of her and me going to vote 4 years ago and then asked her to take a photo of when she went by herself this year. So fun!

I also made this page about how little my sweet Sally was when we got her.

Week 30: Oh summer was in full bloom this week! It was so hot for so long this summer and while this was the week I went back to work after 4 weeks of vacation, we did quite a few beach runs! I used mostly the Mermaid dreams collection by Sahin Designs for this spread.

Week 25: This was my last week at work before 4 week´s of vacation and you can see how I celebrated that = with a good old nap ;)

Week 29: I recorded the many wild fires our country had at this time. The weather have been so hot and dry forever so even the trains caused fires! also recording our garden. When I took this photo I realized that I had forgotten to journal on that last card, I have since then gone back and jotted a few things about our weekend.

Sahin Designs CT | Garden party projects

Here are the projects I made with the Garden Party collection from Sahin Designs.

I might say that the current collection is my favorite every time, but if you know me you know that i love my garden. So this is certainly a favorite! I really love that this kit is mostly black, white and grey because it is so easy to use with every other color.

For this layout I used a photo I took at a plant nursery just days before getting access to this kit!

I also love this black and white floral paper in the kit, I paired it with stampinga pattern with a set from Feed your craft. 

During July I think I made 3 or 4 layouts with hidden journaling behind a photo. My new favorite thing!

Here is one of the most fun and colorful layouts I made with this kit. I used the awesome word art because it is perfect! 

See, favorite thing! I also used a paper from one of the kits by Diane!

Sahin designs CT | Getaway projects

Here are the projects I have made with the Getaway collection from Sahin Designs.

The collection is a fun travel themed kit and I loved using it for when my nieces and nephew stayed with us for a few fun summer days. Adventure doesn´t need to be far away! I added my journaling directly on my photo with the Letterglow app on my phone.

I also wanted to use several of the papers in the collection and made a cluster of circles to show them off. I love the photos on this layout, especially the first one ;)

Hi! How are you caught up with your projects this year? I am feeling caught up with both my weekly Project life and scrapbook. Today I want to share a few more spreads!

Week 21: This was late May and we had such a nice warm month. Most everything was growing in my garden and that is one of my favorite times of the year!

Week 22: I used my stamp stash to make cards for my pockets this week. I love using them and always like to challenge myself to use them in more ways.

Week 23: Often when we have a bigger event it usually take up one page of my spread. This week was prom week and ofcourse I dedicated the right hand page for that.

Week 24: was graduation week for my girl. We had such a lovely day celebrating with her!

Sahin Designs CT | Unwind projects

Here are the projects I have made with the Unwind collection from Sahin Designs.

I love the colors in the kit and I loved to use it for my daughter´s prom photos!

I use something from every collection to my Project Life spreads too. It can be a card or two and elements, or just every card.

I am loving to be on the Sahin Designs creative team! Elif always has so many good collections that we work with and I love that they are versatile. The colors are almost always right up my alley and I can use them over and over.

Sahin Designs CT | Sweet life projects

Here are the project I have made with the Sweet life collection by Sahin designs!

This was a fun way to make a double page in the Pocket Page Notebook. Have I told you about those? Well, they are made by The Stampspot in Australia and they are the best to use! Every other page is a pocket and it makes the whole notebook so fun! Anyway, Here I have used the pocket to hold my journaling cards.

Sahin Designs CT | Infinity projects

Here are the projects I made with Sahin Designs Infinity collection. 

This is such an awesome collection with the bright pinks and black and white together! I made this 2 page layout about a bike ride we took just when spring was at it’s peak. I wanted a fun way to add several photos and this is what I came up with. I also love to show of the beautiful pattern papers using my circle punch.

I also HAD to use the cute word art card from this collection! So I made this quick page.

Last but not least I made this fun page with one of the pocket cards!

I used pattern papers and a journaling card I made using the kit on this page about how cute our Stella is when she jumps up on the shelf to get her toys. It also has elements and pattern papers from a fun kit by The Crafty Pocket on etsy.

Sahin Designs CT | Berry much projects

Happy Tuesday! Today I´ll be sharing my projects made with the Berry much collection from Sahin Designs.

Here is a peek at the elements from the collection. You can see how fun and colorful it is!

I used the papers and cards for my week 13 spread in my Project Life album. It was april and not as green as just a few weeks later, so it was fun to use the color in the colection for this!

And here is a layout that I made with the same collection that is much more muted. I love Sahin Designs for this, that there is something for everything in one collection!

NSD 2018 | My layouts

(Inter)national Scrapbook day was a few weekends ago and I played with several different challenges.

kellie stamps had several challenges and I played with their sketch challenge. I also used this as my projects for Studio Calico´s photo collage challenge. I made the collage on my phone using the app A beautiful mess.

This one was a fun one to work on! This was for the "Use a PL card" challenge from Studio Calico. I used the card to hold the journaling tag. I took the journaling from one of my daughters blog posts where she listed things that were on her mind at the time.

I chose to add this to the "Use a big photo" challenge, but I could have also used it for the "Creative stamping" challenge at Studio Calico. I love those feather stamps from Studio Forty and used them on water color paper where I had just added some random paint. I love the effect!

This one also has stamps from Studio Forty and this is the layout I used for the "Creative stamping" challenge. It was so much fun to do!

Project Life 2018 | Week 12-16

Week 12: I used the Dialouge collection from Sahin designs on this spread. I typed out my journaling on the computer and i kinda like it.

Week 13 Easter week and I love that we could all be together. Don´t you love all that color?!

Week 14: I turned to one of my favorite PL kits for this one; the Midnight edition. I do love the simplicity of black and white paired with bright yellow!

Week 15: Soft colors for this week.

Week 16: More color and more spring!
