Hi guys, today’s video is from my 2014 Project Life album, continuing to document our house being built! I decided to use some of my Little Moments Edition Core Kit from Project Life, and then pulled my Styleboard collection from Maggie Holmes to embellish with. Have a look at my process:
So here is the layout with just photos and cards chosen:
And the completed layout:
So I am loving the new Little Moments Edition Core Kit. Oh these colors and the gold foil are my go-to colors and I love them more and more. I started with the date card here, backed using a filler card, and embellished on top with Styleboard from Maggie Holmes. That typewriter, you guys, how have I not used that already?!
My photo for this day is here showing the scaffold that the workers use to place the siding. I again used my circle date element from Paislee Press, and the numbers are from Styleboard.
My journaling rests here on one of the journaling cards. I wrote about how I chose the color grey with white trim and black roof for our home because it is one of my favorite colors. The two banner strips on the lower photo draw your eye to the sharp perspective of the corner of the house. I love that this is still what I see every day when I walk onto my front porch (completed, of course!)
A fun to-do list – it is always fun to write out someone else’s to-do list, isn’t it? Ha! And a simple quote card embellished with a rose and the M typewriter font for Moxley. So fitting.
I find the building process incredibly fascinating, and some of that stems from my lifelong love of interior design. I included another photo of the ladders and equipment the men used to raise the siding, and then used the diagonal lines of the siding to house my journaling. That is the only embellishment for this photo.
The right hand side of this layout is about the visit on the 21st of May, in which the siding was all done, the doors were hung, and the dumpster had been moved.
My date circle again on the house photo is the primary focal card on this layout. I love this view into the house through the garage – what you see on the inside is actually our laundry room and the hallway to the kitchen and dining room. Now of course it is all dry-walled and closed up to form the rooms we love, but I so very much love this view. Watching it come together.
For the 3×4 cards I chose one with journaling, one with text, one with a pattern, and one with a saying. No fussy embellishing here, just a few simple chipboard pieces.
This journaling makes me laugh every time. We loved working with our superintendent and he got this thing done. But the dumpster thing definitely makes me laugh now when I look back on it. Ah good times.
Now this photo was already embellished because it was originally part of a layout I had done earlier. When I went back to confirm photo order and placement, it was out of order. No worries, I just placed it here on the date it belongs, and left the embellishments as is.
This filler card here is actually from an older Heidi Swapp mini kit and I really don’t even know how or why it is there, but I like it so I left it there! Also a little more journaling about what a big deal it was to be able to see the house on the outside with the finishes and windows and doors.
One last photo of the inspection stickers on the windows. I have worked with city inspectors on previous commercial design projects, so I know what these stickers mean. It also meant something to us that we saw them in place at each step along the way, reassuring us that this was up to code, meeting the standards, good stuff. These are comforts to me along this process.
I hope this has been a fun layout to look at today! Tomorrow is drawing day for the give-away, so if you haven’t stepped over to my YouTube channel to comment yet, do it today! I will see you then to announce the winner!
