I am sharing another Project Life spread from 2014 with you today, and here is Week 35. This week there is an added insert too which is always fun to include. Also I figured it was worth mentioning that it was a bank holiday here in the UK, August Bank Holiday to be exact. That means that the Monday was also a public holiday, so we all got a long weekend. The Monday is still in this week though, and the previous part of the weekend in the previous week’s. One thing I do like to be consistent with is keeping my spreads Monday-Sunday. Maybe it is linked to my planner/calendar obsession…. I’m not sure haha!
Thanks, as always, for being here.

Well I have been super busy trying to play catch up with Project Life and I am getting there for sure! I can’t wait to get all caught up on here. Although I don’t have a snazzy new year post, I will work on one for next week I reckon. So…. for now here is some more from 2014!
I also have some layouts to share with you that were in with this week’s spread. I love including my layouts in with my Project Life spreads, I love that it’s so nonuniformed… did I just make up a word?! Hehe… well here they are too!
Today I am sharing my Project Life Week 33 with you, and it has an insert in it. I like using different inserts within my album, and that can be anything from something small and slim like this week, to flu 12×12 scrapbook layouts. It totally depends on the photos and stories for the week. We had quite a lot going on this week, hubs had been working on the garden and was very proud of his efforts, so of course I wanted that to get in. Also his birthday was the following week and so we were out at the weekend with friends, and it wasn’t just any old birthday, he turned 30. So we had a big evening out in London and went to some really lovely cocktail bars and then out for a lovely meal too. It was perfect
Thanks for being her, as always
Some more Project Life here today, see I am doing well with sharing and catching up with you guys I am just loving the colours and all the cute embellishments in the Studio Calico kits! They are super fun and really help to bring my album to life. So today I am sharing Project Life Weeks 31 & 32 with you, and I hope you enjoy them.
So are you all caught up, or months behind like me? I’d love to hear about your Project Life status.
I have some more Project Life to share with you guys today. I am very excited as my refils for my Selphy are on their way and so I reckon I can get all caught up over the festive period Would yu believe I am also working on a December Daily album? I know, I am crazy haha! You will find that later this week over at CraftWithCat as I am using Stampin’ Up! goodies for it.
So here is Week 29 for me, and in case you can’t remember, that was back in July!! I do have up until September done though, and I can’t wait to get more caught up!
And here is week 30:
Now I know there isn’t much journalling for this week, but I am totally OK with that. Some weeks I just don’t have much to say, and I feel the pictures here tell the stories I want in my album well enough on their own.

So here I am sharing My Planner – Week 49 with you guys from my planner/filofax. I am still using the Cocoa Daisy kit, and loving it. I am looking forward to getting the new weekly layouts for January though, they will make this part much easier
My plan is to have a ‘Week in Review’ type of post on the reverse of this. I just need to actually do it

I am determined to get my blog caught up on my Project Life spreads before the end of the year – although I am still a good 3-4 months behind myself I have now at least photographed all my finished spreads and will be blogging these over the coming weeks. To make things quicker I have just used my iPhone for the pics, so apologies if the quality is not up to scratch, but I am hoping they will still work.
So let’s take a look at week 27:
And here’s Week 28:
As always I mostly use the Studio Calico kits. Love them
I am starting to think about my system for 2015…. Even though I am soooo behind with this year I still want to continue next year, but I am toying with going down to a handbook size. I am waiting to see what Studio Calico release, so may start the year a month behind, but am OK with that as I have so much to catch up on What are your plans Project Life wise for 2015?
You’ll notice that I have missed out Week 25 here, and there is a reason for that. We were away for our friends’ wedding in Greece, and so with a multitude of piccies I will probably do a mini album. I like to take one large image for each spread here, and will add that in at some point (this was my plan for a week in 2013 too and it still isn’t there yet haha!).
So let’s take a look at this spread:
Thanks for being here, as always,

As you all know, I am a massive planner/filofax fan. In fact I love all things stationery related. I thought it was about time I started regularly sharing what’s inside my planner, and I am looking at doing a video walkthrough of my set up soon. So firstly I thought it would be good to let you know what planner and system I am using, and then we can take a look at an example week.
My main planner is a gold Kikki K which I adore – they currently have a sale on, so go check it out! The quality of the rings is not quite as good as filofax in my opinion, but I don’t care – I love it! I am also getting the Cocoa Daisy planner kit each month and so that’s what I am using. To start with, here’s a look at week 47 in my planner:
I am currently playing around with how best to use the weekly part of the kit. However I have just seen that from January Cocoa Daisy have re-designed this section, and I feel the new layout will work well for me. I will continue to share my weeks here with the current set up though.
What I have done here is done a ‘Week in Review’ type of page on the left, and then my weekly plans on the right. However this system doesn’t work in this format, which I realised after I had done all this The layout of the pages means that my week in review should be on the back of the current week, and so facing the following week. This is how I have done things for December, and I have ended up leaving out Week 48, so you will see that for next time
Within this set up I have used a mixture of lots of leftover embellishments, mostly from Studio Calico or Oh Deer Me kits. I have used the thin washi that came in December’s Cocoa Daisy planner kit to separate Morning, Afternoon & Evening – not sure if this works or not so am trying without this separation for December. I have also used one of Ali Edward’s Story Stamp sets for my week in review page. I also use some of hers in my daily pages which I will share soon too.
So what are you using? I’d love to hear about it

Hello, thanks so much for being here today. I am sharing some more of my Project Life with you guys. For this spread instead of using my normal Studio Calico kits, I actually tried out one of the new Project Life by Stampin’ Up! (well not so new now). This is the Everyday Adventure Card and Accessory sets and I would really love to know what you think.
I am also sharing this over at my Stampin’ Up! site CraftwithCat.
