March Stories

I’m having a hard time believing that April is just one week away. Seriously. March has flown by, so I thought I’d share a few of the projects I made this month for Ali Edwards’ Creative Team.

March is a big birthday month for us! Liam and Brett’s birthdays are just 4 days apart. I haven’t made a page yet about Liam’s birthday (which was awesome and crazy and busy), but I did jot a few things about how we celebrated Brett’s big day this year. This hybrid 8.5 x 11 layout came together with the March digital kit. I enlarged the “march stories” digital stamp (definitely one of my favourite pieces from the collection) to make the background here.

LOVED how excited Liam and Emily were about his birthday 🙂 They gave him lots of love that day, sharing the Pikachu birthday pin, insisting that they both sit beside him for meals, and letting everyone know everywhere we went “today’s my dad’s birthday!”

Right after birthdays, March break started. We wound up with the first big snow fall of the whole winter and I was so excited to take the kids sledding! This is a 2 page 6×8 hybrid layout, inspired in part by this awesome design I came across on Pinterest.

Super simple but pretty much perfect. I enlarged this 3×4 card from the March Digital kit to 4×6 and attached it to the oversized 12×8 photo with a few pieces of washi tape.

This month’s Story Kit theme is Eat! And it totally stumped me at first. (crazy right) There’s got to be a million stories that relate to this topic, but it took me a while to realize that the one I wanted to tell most was this little snapshot about what dinner time looks like these days. It’s not at all glamorous. In fact, just the other day the words “no more fart noises at the table unless they’re coming from your but” were spoken. For real. I used the digital plastic circles, the title from one of the journaling cards, and you might be able to very faintly spot the story notepad in the background of the journaling page to create this 2 page 8.5×11 layout. And those little utensils are my FAVOURITE!! In the physical kit, they’re wood veneer pieces, but you can print/cut any colour you like from the digital elements. As stressful as dinner time feels most days, I’m truly thankful for the time we get to spend together. And now I’ve got LOTS more story ideas for this theme. Looking forward to working on those in the coming weeks.

Hoping to spend some time catching up with our Project Life album again in the next few weeks! Thanks so much for stopping by today 🙂
