Project Life Week #1 with CarrieAnne

Week #1 Project Life Layout
Curtsey Botuique Designer
CarrieAnne DeLoach

 One of my New Year's resolutions is to successfully complete a Project Life album this year.  One thing that has always gotten in my way in the past is my dislike of my handwriting. I could of course print everything on the computer, but that has a tendancy to stop my momentum and than the layout stalls and than it just doesn't get finished.

So this year, I've decided to get over it - my handwriting, is my handwriting and that's that!  I love how easy our shipping tags make journaling and there are a few of them and our mini library cards on this layout.

This week was quite busy for us as we had out of town family visiting, a trip to a friends for New Year's Dinner, unpacking tons of boxes at our new house, football bowl games to watch and a trip to the Varsity - an Atlanta diner that is a landmark.

DIY Jute Organizer and Burlap Bag Dispense Tutorial by Connie Mercer

We all love to use Jute in our projects, but storing and keeping it kink and not free is not always easy. Connie has stylishly mastered this organizational conundrum and is sharing her burlap organizer tutorial with us today.

Man and Wife Card by Rebekah Faries

Man and Wife Card

It is snowing in Georgia this morning! I can't believe it. For us flurries are a very rare thing - we didn't see a flake last year and I'll be honest I'm no fan of the cold or shoveling.  

This lovely card by Rebekah, however just warms my heart and makes up for the dismal weather. Showcasing our corrugated silhouettes and doilies, a sweet shower of confetti hearts are the perfect finishing touch.

Altered "Love" Embroidery Hoop by Jenifer Cowles

Altered Love Embroidery Hoop
Curtsey Boutique Designer
Jenifer Cowles

A quick walk through my local department stores this week revealed that everyone is getting ready for Valentine's Day. It seems scarcely possible with the ground still littered with fire work remnants, but there it is - red, pink and white hearts everywhere.

I thought we'd hop on the band wagon instead of fighting the love avalanche. Jenifer's altered embroidery hoop is a charming decoration to hang at home or give to a friend.
