MIM Shaker Card

It's been years since I made a shaker card so I decided to play along with this week's PaperTrey Ink MIM challenge.  For my card, I used Jen's January SFYTT from iheart2stamp.  I tried to keep this card simple while keeping the focus on the shaker.

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used the All Booked Up die from PTI for my shaker which I embossed with By the Numbers impression plate also by PTI.  Sentiment is from My Creative Time.

Here is a photo of the sketch:

CASE Study 74

Just a quick birthday card to play along with this week's CASE Study challenge.  Jen Rzasa is the January Muse and it's hard to resist a CASE of her work. 

Here is my take on this challenge: 
Sentiment is from PTI - Signature Greetings and DP is from Authentique's Gathering collection.  I added pearls as I thought my card needed something else to make it "pop"  :)

Here is a photo of Jen's original card:

Project Life - January

So let's talk Project Life!  Warning...this is a long post and photo heavy! 

Last year I posted my title page for 2011 but never got a chance to post any of my pages.  Like I said before, life just got in the way of my hobbies! :)  If you read my original post you will see my process and how I use Project Life to capture our story.  This year I've decided to post those 2011 pages each month respectively, and then after completing my 2012 pages for that same month I will post them as well.  Hope that makes sense. :)

So here are my pages for January 2011:

 Title page (see original post here)

First page starts with New Year's Eve.  Photo sleeve on right side is from We R Memory Keepers.  

I used two different Ali Edwards journals on these pages along with some stamping. 

Definitely need more practice taking photos of my pages in the photo sleeves!  :)  Not sure why these are so blurry...

I placed a picture of the cards that I made during the month for special occasions in a 6x6 page protector. 

Back side of the previous birthday card.

Bottom left - I used two journal cards in this 4x6 slot and added a photo to go along with the story of that day.

 Two page spread on celebrating a few January birthdays along with another birthday card. 

Used an overlay from Ali Edwards for the top left photo.  I love her overlays! :)

Included the 8x10 photo from my son's team photo shoot. 

One of the reasons why I love Project Life...I am able to incorporate full layouts in my album.  Here is an 8x8 layout of me cooking with the girls! :)

Left - back side of the previous 8x8 layout. I used a Cathy Zielske Story Guide layout to interview my daughter. 

WOW...that was a lot!  Thanks for stopping by.  :)

CASE Study 73

Here is another card that I made using this week's challenge from CASE Study.  I actually fell in love with Jen Rzasa's card since last summer, so you can just imagine how happy I was to finally CASE it.  

Here is my take on this challenge:
I kept it clean and simple as Jen did in her original card.  For my die cut shape I used Nestabilities Dies, Blossom 2 from Spellbinders.  You can't tell from this photo but the second layer is actually popped up from the base of the card.

Here is the original card that Jen Rzasa made.

Happy Birthday!

Here is a birthday card that I made using the photo inspiration from this week's Runway Inspired Challenge.  I also used techniques from this week's CASE Study Challenge.  

Sentiment is from PTI, Big Birthday Wishes.
