Project Life Daily Journal 2016 + Giveaway

Happy Friday Peeps!!!

I am for one VERY glad Friday is here! This week has been one CRAZY BUSY week! lol Today I am sharing my Project Life Daily Journal for 2016 better late than never right? If you want to see all of what I shared so far on this you can click on the categories daily journal on the left side of my blog and it will pull up all the post's I've done so far on this. I shared my cover page below way back in Jan and wanted to touch on it quick here.

IMG_5490

This is the cover page for our 2016 Album. We decided to do the Daily Journal again dh thought it was cool to document each day even if it's a work day. hahaha I honestly think I've created a monster I never thought he would be this into it. lol I wanted to focus on one word this year and we decided to pick NEW. So this year's album focus on that. I was inspired by Ali Edwards One Little Word.

Definition of New: not existing before; made, introduced, or discovered recently or now for the first time.

Originally we just were going to do 1 new thing but instead decided to make it into a year of New things. Our NEW will focus on: trying new things, new adventures, new arrivals, new items and etc. Our cover page focused on the NEW Year and our NEW goals as a family. There are so many ways to look at the word New.

Today's layout I am using the retired Memories in the Making Project Life from last year's Occasion's Catalog. Right now this kit is in the Clearance Rack and available to purchase at a major discount. SCORE it's an awesome kit!! It

Memories in the Making Accessory

On the backside of the cover page we each made out our New Goals for this year and documented what we want our album to focus on this year. Hubby of course had to work in his humor too. lol I mainly used the Memories in the Making Project Life Kit. I did use the Metallic Foil Doilies and Rhinestone Basic Jewels to step up my layout a little more. The top left corner card is my favorite thing we came up with and really fits the word NEW.

12 NEW Chapters
365 NEW Chances
NEW Adventures Await

Who knew the word NEW could have so many meanings!! It's pretty amazing really when you start thinking about it. So far it's been a wild year for us and little did we know what NEW adventures we would be on this year.....to be continued :)

I have a bit of story with this layout. :)

In 2014 our extended family was not able to celebrate Christmas in December. We always celebrate the holidays with my mom's brother and his family. With our family a lot of the times it's very hard to do the holidays around the holidays because we have an EMT, Teachers, Cop, Store Manager and you get the picture. lol We were not able to be together as a family until Feb. 2015 to celebrate our Christmas. A lot of the time I host Christmas; however since it was going to be towards the end of February I really didn't want my Christmas Tree up that long or go through the hassle of taking it down and putting it back up. I am good doing it once a year! lol So we decided since this was really nontraditional holiday instead to go ice fishing as a family.

Some of us not a problem however my husband at the time hated to fish, my mom had not been on the ice since a little girl she doesn't like it all, my dad with his health problems can't be around wood stoves or gas heaters anymore and my aunt is not a very big fan of it. Not everyone has fish houses either. lol I know your thinking why do this then? Because we have 2 little boys that LOVE to ice fish and it was more about making the day for them since it was not your normal Christmas. lol After many calls back before thinking we should not do it, us kids  and mainly my one cousin finally said lets just do it we'll make it work and it will be an adventure!! Little did I know.....

IMG_8618

Our day started off with -40 below and -60 below wind chill. WOW looks like we picked the literally the coldest day of the year to go ice fishing. lol Hubby and my day started off giving our stinky dog a bath. My brother is allergic to him so he gets a bath every time my brother comes home. lol We got to the lake, drove over an ice heave and my brother lost the running board off his truck that should have been a sign. lol We set up our portable fish houses as fast as we could because man was it cold!!!!

IMG_8621

My parents arrived, we got them into the fish houses and set up. Then set up everyone else. While fishing I got a MONSTER hit....I was worried about breaking my brother's fancy rod so had him come help me. Back and forth really fighting with this fish OH MY I thought I was gonna have a MONSTER....turns out some how my uncle and I got our fishing lines tangled with each other. 50 feet our houses where, and we bother were in different fish house. lol WOW 25 min fighting with each others line. I saved the fishing line that broke and attached to the picture in the bottom right corner. Man it's so cold in those portables!!

IMG_8629

We grilled on the lake, my cousin and I kept dropping the food on the ground because it was so cold the tongs wouldn't close tight on stuff lol, beverages froze except for my wine hahah, one kid stepped in a hole and didn't tell anyone he was soaked for hours, the kids dumped my aunts bag down a hole, lost some fishing tackle, people got hooked bad, had a fishing pole tangled in the ceiling of an ice house, ran out of firewood on the coldest day of the year so don't recommend that, lol Where was my one cousin in all of this at my uncle and aunts place were it was toasty and warm sick in bed...so she says. lol We did catch fish but they froze on us. ROFL 9:30 pm we called it quits ripped it all down in 10 min. Get all done my uncle says did anyone use the nice fish house over there the heats been on for 8 hours while some of us were freezing in the portables. ROFL!! What an adventure we had, everyone had fun and most important of all we spent time together as a family and made an awesome story!

So peeps that was our day on Feb. 21, 2015.

I used this set creating a wedding card. Or you could use it for graduation or sending someone a congrats on a promotion, something finished or etc. This is a simple and quick card but also has a bit of a dressed up look.

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Take the stamp from Timeless Textures Stamp Set; ink it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Stamp off onto scratch paper then stamp onto the Whisper White card stock creating a faint look. Ink the other stamp in Marina Mist and stamp onto the Whisper White card stock.
  • Add some Silver Metallic Thread and a Metallic Foil Doily.
  • Take the banner stamp from You're So Lovely Stamp Set; ink it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. Zip through the Big Shot with the Large Number Framelits die cutting it out. Ink the congrats in Marina Mist and stamp onto the banner.

Here is a little note card I made way back in January and sent out to all my customers that qualified to receive the Occasions Catalog. Another reason why you don't want to select no contact then you don't receive your goodies from me that your order may qualify for! This set works great for making quick note cards! I took this idea and turned it into a pocket card for my project life. Here is what that one looks like.

I just changed out the stamped colors and washi tape so it would match with my project life cover page.

Timeless Textures + Daily Journal Project Life

I love project life, it is so easy for documenting your life. It can be simple and fast or you can step it up. It is important to document you life and everyday moments. I recently had a friend try project life and she loved it but someone told her that just layouts of her and her pet were boring. This broke my heart she is a wonderful person. You don't need to be married or have children to do project life. Your life, regardless if you are married or have kids, is IMPORTANT. What goes on in your life does matter!!! I personally love to scrapbook for the memories; we've lost family members suddenly so for me it helps to have those moments documented so you can go back and think of the good times, smile, laugh and remember that loved one or pet.

This is the Life Bundle

I am sharing another part of my daily project life journal. If you want to see all of what I shared so far on this you can click on the categories daily journal on the left side of my blog and it will pull up all the post's I've done so far on this. Today I am sharing 2 layout with you all Feb. 23-26, 2015. I used the Project Life This is the Life Bundle item #140297 on page (52) in the main catalog. Right now by purchasing it as a bundle you can save 15% this will be retiring in a few days! This bundle helps you keep track of the amazing everyday events in your life. I also paired it with some of my other favorite project stamp sets and the Timeless Textures Stamp Set (W) item #140514 (C) item #140517 from the Occasions Catalog.

Were big fans of the Avengers and Captain America movies.

The Stamp Review Crew; Balloon Celebration

Balloon Celebration banner

Welcome to another The Stamp Review Crew Hop!! We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who will be bringing you lots of ideas for one particular stamp set twice a month!! The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, you can hop along from one blog to the next gathering all kinds of inspiration for one Stampin' Up! stamp set. Please note the blog doesn't officially start until Monday April 18, 2016 so some of the links may not work.

I am so excited for the fun to start!! We have a great group of talented stampers for this hop!!  If you are following the hop in order you just arrived from Bruno's BLOG where he showed you all something fabulous! We are featuring the Balloon Celebration Photopolymer Stamp Set item #140675 (pg. 12) from the Occasions catalog. This is a fun set!

  140675G

I used this set in a completely different way. April around here is a TON of birthdays and I've been making so much birthday stuff that I am burned out on balloons. lol So I thought hmm light bulb moment... why not use it for a project life layout and I am behind on my project life daily journal. PERFECT!!! I also kinda jumped ahead on sharing so it's a little out of order for dates if you've been following along on my blog. If you want to see all of what I shared so far on this you can click on the categories daily journal on the left side of my blog on the home page and it will pull up all the post's I've done so far on this.

Here is another glimpse into our life! I am documenting March 1, 2015. Hubby and I had to clean a job in the morning then afterwards went to the local Chinese place for lunch. Then home to work some more then later watched the season finale of Downtown Abby (one of my favorite shows) and I am heart broken its done!!!

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Some of the words in the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set worked perfect for this layout. Top right corner of the card I stamped "let us celebrate" in Pacific Point above moments on the card from (Project Life Moments Like These Card Collection). I also stamped the stars in Crushed Curry onto the card too. I punched out a piece of Brights Designer Series Paper with the Sweetheart Punch. I used the Medium Star Punch to punch out a piece of Neutrals Designer Series Paper.
  • Bottom left corner card stamped the stars in Sahara Sand onto the card. Punched out a piece of It's My Party Designer Series Paper (Crushed Curry Pattern) with the Medium Star Punch. Used the Sweetheart Punch to punch out a piece of Brights Designer Series Paper (Pacific Point Pattern). I stamped the saying from Balloon Celebrations "come let us sit together and drink" in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I cut off the and drink then punched out each end using the Banner Punch. I punched a staple at the top of the card.
  • Center card I added some Silver Metallic Thread, a piece of It's My Party Designer Series Paper and another star. I also stamped the stars from Balloon Celebration in Sahara Sand onto the card. Then stapled our fortunes to the card.
  • The last card I stamped "and eat cookies" in Crushed Curry onto Whisper White card stock. Punched one end out with the Banner Punch creating a banner. Added the Silver Metallic Thread, Star (It's My Party Designer Series Paper), and the little heart from Project Life Moments Like These Accessory Pack.
  • I placed Rhinestone Basic Jewels randomly all over the cards to finish.

He was quite proud of himself too. lol Not only did he do that but he spent the day helping me set up my cameo and we played around with it most of the day too!! Not to many guys will do that so I don't mind not getting gifts. lol

2016 Goals; You're So Lovely

2016 the New Year is most defiantly here :) Time for new goals, try new things, organize, get healthy and so much more!!! One thing for 2016 that we've been remind of right off the bat is things defiantly don't go as planned. lol I had this BIG idea of what I was going to do for New Year's Day; umm guess what life happened and really made me think. So for the hole month of January I am focusing on the New Year instead of just New Year's Day. You can set goals, make plans and etc. really any time of the year; you don't need to stick to some time table on a calendar. Here is a fun way I put my goals/new year's resolutions down on paper. Right now I am going to leave it out in front of my work area so I see it; but I made it on a Project Life Card so I can slide it into my album.

Every year I get asked the same two questions:

1. How do I  achieve my new year's resolutions or goals?

2. Don't you feel let down or really bad when you don't accomplish something?

Goals:
1. When you make your goals set the bar high but not out of reach. Be real, Be Honest.

My first goal for 2016 was to try 1 new thing this year and I did. When I thought about it at the time I didn't really know what I wanted to do, I just knew it had to be 1 new thing to me and me alone. I tried using pink on something just for me. I HATE pink and I mean I HATE it. If I had my way the color would be banned for life!! lol So I wrote out my goals in Watermelon Wonder; yep still hate it but I did it and I was proud of myself!! That's how easy it can be.

2. Make time to work on your goals. This can be 5-10 min or more a day, week or month depending on what your goals are.

You Can:
Let's be honest and realistic you're not going to accomplish every thing on that list. They are just simply something you want to improve on. It's not life or death and the world will not end. If you start off right away thinking your gonna fail and have that attitude then you will fail and feel bad.

Did I accomplish all my goals I set last year? Heck NO and I am ok with that. One example, was trying out Project Life but doing it on a daily journal instead of weekly. WOW that was a lot to bite into and honestly what was I thinking peeps?? lol I was able to document everyday but was not able to create spreads for each day yet. But I did accomplish documenting each day. So even though I didn't achieve the ultimate goal I was able to achieve a related goal. (Next Friday I will be sharing more about my Project Life 2016 plans.)

I challenge you all to set goals/ new year's resolutions if you have not yet. Here is to an awesome 2016 for everyone and I can't wait to hear about your goals!

Supplies Used~
Stamp~ You're So Lovely
Ink~ Tempting Turquoise
