Project Life 2015 Week 19 & 20 | Kellie Stamps

It has been awhile since the last time I shared with you how I used the stamp sets from Kellie Stamps. Ah well, the school is out! Arrgh.. I am busier than usual since the boys are home from day to night and more outdoor activities which mean I am kept away from my desk more than I’d want to.

WK 19 & 20 PL Full Spread

I had these 2 weeks of Project Life done for awhile now but only got around to snap photos, edit and put together a blog post until now. My bad. Still, I hope that you will enjoy what you see here!

As usual, I preferred to have large photos in my Project Life and coupled with little (but IMPORTANT) elements to complete the finish look. After a round of stamping on photos, it was clear that I have lots of room for improvement.

Project Life 2015 – Week 19, Closeup View

In the latest Kellie Stamps released this month, I so love the many hash tags stamps from But First and many more from This Is My Jam. For this particular photo that I stamped on, I kind of screwed up on the stamped image, putting too much pressure on one side that caused that squashed out look on the ‘YOU’. And after some nail biting and hair pulling session, I decided to go with the mess and tried to mend it the best that I could. Ahem.. I chose to close one eye and moved on LOL. I could have thrown that photo into the bin, reprint a new one and try my luck to get the stamping nicely done. Instead, I embraced the imperfection and focus on the cute boy with his pouting lips. Ha! :p

And I was delighted to find label stamps in the new release – This is My Jam! I practically stamped tons and tons of them, in different colors, trimmed them down and put them aside. These labels are very useful for journaling as well as stamping in words and layer them on top of photos.

Now, allow me to share with you a fun stamping technique, and perhaps you would take up the challenge and create some projects with this technique! *wink*

 

The usual and most common way of using our stamps is to pick up some ink from an ink pad and stamped onto whatever surface material we want. So how about having some watercolour stamped images? Oh yes, I’m not kidding, I did say WATERCOLOR.

 

What you need is some waterbase color markers, papers, water spray bottle and of course the essential stamping supplies such as ink pad, acrylic blocks and stamp cleaner. I’m using my distress markers from Ranger to create the watercolor stamped images on 3”x4” white cards.

Instead of the typical one solid color stamped image, I want something fun and of vibrant colors. And here was what happened – I picked a script word ‘TODAY’ from Kellie Stamps May stamp set – Today, applied the desired colors straight onto the stamp piece. Next, holding the spray bottle approximately a short ruler distance from the inked stamp piece, mist the stamp piece lightly and stamped the image with even pressure. To finish off the card, I filled the remaining space with black stamped image in order the make the watercolor ‘TODAY’ to stand out and be the main focus point.

The same goes for the label stamp piece. Color the stamp piece directly with distress markers, mist it lightly with water and stamped. Hey, I got some really cool-looking labels that I can add words on them!

At the end of the day, I created a handful of cards to be included in my Project Life spreads as well as for card making. 😉

Project Life 2015 Week 13 & 14 | Kellie Stamps

Hiya! Happy to have you with me today as I share with you what I have documented in my latest Project Life (PL) spreads using yet another awesome new stamp release – CRAZY from Kellie Stamps, as well as using bits and pieces from my stash. 😉

 

In addition, I want to share with you how I managed to have the cool looking title cards out of the Project Life App that I’ve been using since the beginning of this year to plan and design my PL layouts before printing out my photos.

 

WK 13 & 14 PL 2015 Spread

For these 2 title cards in both week 13 and 14, they were actually the digital PL cards I selected within the Project Life App. I saved my digital PL layout in 8”x8” format in my phone, uploaded it into my computer and used Photoshop (or any software that can do editing job) to crop out the required 6”x4” section. Titles and necessary texts were added on before saving it as a JPG file. Lastly, I used Picasa to send the images to my Canon Selphy Printer and VIOLA, 2 nicely done up title cards went into my PL spreads!

This was a delightful discovery because I had ran out on most of the 6”x4” PL cards from my Becky Higgins Project Life – Midnight Edition core kit which is my all-time-to-go-to favourite collection. And with this new find, I can use these stunning PL card designs freely and for as many times as I like to. Yay!

Week Thirteen had been an extremely sad and emotional week for many of us as a nation as we mourned the passing of our founding father. The sky seemed darker and my mood was lousy.

Week Fourteen came along and was I glad that I was able to craft and be surrounded with colors and positive vibes to keep myself upbeat. I did more direct stamping on photos too, although a few of the stamped images looked wobbly and uneven, which was ok to me as I learned to embrace imperfections. :)

 

If you have any question, drop me a comment and I’ll answer to my best knowledge. Thank you for looking!

 

Love,

Rach

Project Life 2015 Week 9 & 10 | Kellie Stamps

In these two spreads of my life documented for week 9 and 10, I incorporated plenty of embellishments such as alphabet stickers, enamel dots, washi tapes, wood veneers, printables and journaling labels. And of course, the usage of Kellie Stamps stamp sets (Hashtag and Good Times)!

Project Life 2015 – Week 10

This time round, I took enough courage to try my hands on stamping directly onto the printed photos again. (Note: I encountered a freaking situation where the inked stamp caught onto the photo after I pressed the stamp down firmly and lifted it up carefully. This action nearly ripped off a hole out of the photo.) I did some test stamping before going to my photos and it did saved me from printing additional pieces to replace any damages made. *Phew*

 

Besides having a good experience with direct stamping on photos, I stamped one of my favorite stamps from the Good Times collection, This Life is Great, onto a speech bubble wood veneer and I LOVE IT! This was so fun and created a great caption for the photo of my little family. The expression of my dear husband was classic and at the same time funny too, don’t you think? LOL.

Another fun create which I had in my week 10, was by layering some journaling labels on one side of the photo to act as a base for me to do some stamping and journaling. It turned out nice and I liked how everything worked together instead of just a piece of printed image. I love how the stamped wordings effortlessly brought out the feel I wanted on my photos, telling us the individual story and feelings of each and every one of them. :)

Project Life 2015 Week 1 & 2 | Kellie Stamps

I started out documenting my year via Project Life in 2013, and to date, I’m left with 5 weeks in my year 2013 and more than 6 months worth of 2014 Project Life spread to catch up on. O.M.G… that sums up to a total of 35 weeks (or more?!) of documentation to work on!! *Shiver*

 

Although this will be a long list to tackle, on top of the many to-dos and current year of Project Life-ing, I’m hopeful to get it done and at the same time enjoy the process. For I have finally come to my senses and be realistic about how I’m going to document my weeks. 😀
