caylee’s project life | week 30

Hello. Caylee here again, and I’m sharing my Project Life layout from last week.

love kits. I could write poems, and sing ballads to kits. I love how they match, that no matter what you use in the kit, you’re still going to have a cohesive layout. I have become very attached to my digital scrapbooking kits. And it is for this reason that I challenged myself to not use a kit this week. Since I still wanted cohesiveness, I took some inspiration from Jamaica’s post, and aimed for circles.

Right side:

Dates covered: 26 August to 1 September

Location: Bruchsal, Speyer, Hambrücken, and Maulbronn in Germany

Favourite moments: ticking two World Heritage Sites off the list,

meeting new people, and really liking them,

starting new crafty projects – 30 Days of Lists, and my travelogues,

cheap coffee.

Anything special: the dotty paper was too dark for what I wanted in this layout, and so I did a quick clipping mask over it with Kraft paper to match. I did it the same way as I used clipping masks for photos, and it took half a minute to do. I used this same digital paper to clip over lined backgrounds. It’s such an easy way to match templates, journal cards, and elements. This is especially important to me since I wasn’t using a kit.

Memorabilia: I’m keeping my World Heritage Site ephemera in its own Moleskine travelogue so nothing this week

Kit Products used: Quintessentials No3, with Kraft paper from Frolic clipped over the dots, Pictures + Words no 4, no 6, and no 7, Round About Now vol. 2, Presscards no 17, and Presslines no 19 (coming soon)

It was a big step for me to go out of my kit-only comfort zone, but I like the end result. It was even, dare I say it, fun.

Amazing Caylee! I ask: what font is it “6 August – 1 September” ?

It is Century Schoolbook, which was on my laptop when I got it. I just made it italic, and added a bit of spacing to zoot it up.

Love it!!! So neat 🙂
