LBD Reveal :: Project Life & Mini Notebooks

Hello!! I'm excited to not only share another Little Black Dress project(s), but my very first Project Life layout also! I know I am totally behind on Project life considering this is the only page I have finished so far:(
I have been keeping track of everything since I don't print my photos myself. So I know I will eventually catch up soon! I am also not really doing the typical "Project Life" album. Not everything is in perfect order and I don't have full double spread PL pages. I am including my full 12x12 layouts in this album so I can have all my 2013 pictures together. Hoping I can fit it all into one album! So enough of me talking/typing and onto the page! This is titled "My Girls"... my three girl dogs of course. :)

(Items not included in the kit: white cardstock, blue labels, thickers, date stamp, thread)
I did this entire page using just two papers and the adorable Freckled Fawn wood pieces! Love the grey and yellow together. And I warned you about going crazy with hearts this month! This page came together so quickly. I think the colors just inspired me on their own and I loved working with smaller "pages"

Love this paper! It is called Hopeful from the Amy Tangerine "Yes Please" line. One of my favorites!

These hearts were cut right from the yellow paper which is called Wild Hearts by the Dear Lizzy "Lucky Charm" line. I love it when you can use a full sheet on its own but also cut little elements from the page to make your own embellishments. I just stitched these on with my sewing machine (the uneven stitch was totally a mistake, but it's all good, adds character right?)

I know this is totally simple but I loved how these looked in the little 3x4 slot. Great for a filler yet adds a totally cute embellishment to the page. I was so excited to see these in the kit!!

Once again a really simple one. Just went crazy with my $1 heart punch and the cute papers. Just punched a bunch out and laid them out in a cute pattern! I thought about stitching them down but I loved the way they already looked and didn't want to take the chance of not liking it as much. 

And last for this page is a little mini notebook! I still need to write some things down in this little thing. So simple to make and adds a cute touch with lots of journaling room! I printed this label out and once again added a little heart to it! love!
So that wraps up the Project Life page. But I wanted to also share two other mini books I made using the LBD April kit! 

After making the little book for my PL page I wanted to make more! Although I don't have use for them yet I know I will have some ready to add to a page when needed! Here are the covers of the little books.

(Items not included in the kit: white cardstock, clothes pins, wood veneer heart, pink twine)
Adorable right! The yellow is probably my favorite :) Love that woodgrain!! 


And a look at the inside! I used the letter stickers from the kit to add a little something to the inside on the pages. Love how they turned out and this is a great way to use up any scraps you have! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I will have one more post using this kit with a video! :)
Have a great day!!
