Project Life {September 2015}

I've been able to get a little crafty time in since joining Kellie and Jessica and their #31minutesfor31days, but I'm not limiting myself to just working on my Chicago mini album. I don't think the girls will mind either. :)

I was able to put my September Project Life pages together pretty quickly over the course of a couple of days, but as I got started on selecting my photos, I found that I didn't have many to choose from. September was really busy for us and our outings were limited so to compensate for my lack of pictures, I focused on creating journaling cards.

I love the instant gratification of buying digital items and couldn't wait to put my new stamps to use. They're from Kellie Stamps and she has a darling set that she collaborated with Brandi Kincaid for sale in digital or physical form. So sweet!

I added cards and embellishments from the September Felicity Jane kit, my favorite being the brush stroke stamp that I used to highlight the topic of each journaling card. I did a little machine sewing on my filler cards and always last, but not least, added my journaling.

Hope you have a great weekend!
