CTC Blog Hop – Project Life

Hi There

Yay – it’s Friday – and we know what that means – time for the weekly CTC Blog Hop. Welcome!


This week the Crew is CASE-ing the Project Life section of the 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.

You may have started the hop here with me, or you may have come from the talented Alison Barclay – either way – Welcome! – I hope you enjoy all the blogs in our CTC Blog Hop. (A full list of the Crew this week is listed at the end of the post.)


It’s been a crazy busy week getting ready for our crafting Extravaganza here in Wellington tomorrow. I used to attend the Hamilton Extravaganza’s when I lived up that way, so it is really exciting to be organising the inaugural event here. Extravaganza is an opportunity for members of Jacque William’s Creative Inkers Team to get together to teach to a large group. And of course our guests get to be taught by several different demos. Working with the others is a real benefit of being part of the Stampin’ Up! family!

The other thing that has made the week busy, busy, busy is that we have a new addition in the house – a kitten!  Our daughter, Beth, has been keen to get another cat to keep her current one company. So last Saturday we let her adopt Lyra from the SPCA – VERY CUTE – but somewhat of a distraction!

Of course we have taken quite a few photos so the Project Life theme was perfectly timed.

The layout I have CASED is on page 52.


I was drawn to the bright colours … and the circles! It made me happy just looking at the page so thought it would be a fantastic springboard to put together a page of our new addition.

Here’s my layout.


I got Beth to write on the journalling card. I’m always the one who does the journalling but decided it would be great if she filled it in this time.

The name of the Project Life Collection I’ve used is very apt – This is the Life!

I just love how we can now purchase the Project Life collections as bundles – Cards, Accessories and Stamps – Yay! A bargain – and co-ordination – what more could a girl want! You can of course buy the components individually but the bundle saves you 15%.

This is the Life Bundle

I also love that there are several cards with images the same as the stamps.

And how cute are those little 2″ x 2″ pockets and cards – ideal for a new fur- baby! This pocket page is one of the three new pages available in a variety pack.

Variety Pack 2 Pocket Pages

As I’ve said before – I find the Project Life stamp sets really versatile. And I’ve mixed it up, and used three different sets on this page!

Happy Times

Remember This

Even the names are great – This is the Life, Happy Times and Remember This. They sure sum up the impact of Lyra this week!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my project – and the photos – the subject matter has certainly brought us lots of enjoyment already!

    What a great layout and I hope Lyra is settling in well. She’s a lovely looking kitty. I think my 2 fat kitties were once that small!!
