Sizzlin' Summer with a freebie

We've had some nice summer weather and lots of sun shine here lately and that's inspired me to create a new set of journaling cards perfect for summer and beach layouts.



The set is called Sizzlin' Summer and it's available in my Etsy store here. I actually remade this set three times with different color schemes before I was happy with it...

Here's a better look at the cards.



As usual, I've also got a small sampler of the kit available for free in the end of this post. But before that, I'm going to show you my Project Life pages for the weeks 27 and 28.


I really like the colors on this spread and the July divider matched perfectly.





The week in review card with the minion waving is my favourite part of this spread. :)

Ok, now onto the freebie.


It's a total of five journaling cards that co-ordinate with the Sizzlin' Summer pack. You can download the cards here. Enjoy and hopefully you'll have lots of sunny pictures to use the cards with! :)

New journaling cards and Paris memorabilia

We're back from our trip to Paris and I've also managed to put those pictures into my Project Life album. But, let me get back to those pages later, since I first want to show you my newest set of journaling cards that I finished up today.


The pack is called Sweet'n Sassy and it turned out so cute. :) This set is inspired by an old kit of mine and it's just perfect for scrapping all those little princesses. You can find the cards in my Etsy store. As usual, I also have a little co-ordinating freebie for you all at the end of this post. :)

But before that, I'd like to show you my Project Life pages from our trip. Getting these pages done seemed like a bit of a daunting task at first since I had 700 pictures to choose from but in the end it was suprisingly easy. All I had to do was to choose my favourite photos from the main places we visited and arrange them into the album. I also used some of my Bon Voyage journaling cards with them. :)


I decided to include two weeks onto one spread since we were traveling during both weeks. I also included a lot of different sized plastic pocket inserts to get all the photos and memorabilia to fit onto the spread.


 

That's a list of the places we visited each day.


We spent one day at Paris Air Show and got some cool business cards from there. This plastic pocket insert was perfect for them in addition to some photos from the air show.


I added some photos and tickets from different places onto the other side of the pockets.


All the other tickets, brochures and memorabilia went into this one plastic pocket that I found from our local bookstore.


And here's the other side of the spread. I'm still planning on adding some journaling onto one of those extra inserts but that's not quite finished yet. Anyway, I'm just so happy I found Project Life since that gives a perfect solution for storing up all that memorabilia you end up having from traveling. :)

Ok, I guess it's time for the freebie now. :)


You can download the freebie here. Have fun and enjoy the summer!
