going graphic | inspirational quote cards set one

 photo ITM_quotecard_1jp.jpg

I have collected a bunch of inspirational quotes for a while that I keep on lovely hot pink post it notes on a wall beside my desk at work. Coming back to work after a long time recently, made me realize that the lovely hot pink post its weren't so very lovely at all. As can be seen in this phone camera snapshot. Awful, isn't it?

So what to do, what to do? Design some better looking ones of course!

So I used a few cards from the Becky Higgins project Life Midnight Collection to create clean, graphic quote cards that will please my eye much more in the future.

I love doing graphic work. It's like solving a puzzle, trying to work different fonts together with the wording. I spent a few hours fiddling with these, and I am so pleased with the results.

I have one more set done as well, but naturally I ran out of Epson Presentation Paper, and will have to come back to those in a couple of days.

project life | week of march 17

Well what do you know, I actually managed to get my Project Life layouts for last week done before this week had passed. I love staying up to date!

Last week was super hard for me, with a setback in my rehab plans. I tried to hold on to nice weather, pretty spring flowers, and good food by the husband.

I really love how pretty the new Becky Higgins Project Life Dear Lizzy Day Dreamer kit is! I think these pages are really lovely!

I wish I had more brain power to scrap more often. I love it when I have finished a page but it takes ages for me to finish one because I have to step away from the computer, or turn it off rather, very often. But I guess a few is better than none at all?

project life | four weeks in february and march

Finally! I have been working really hard this past week to catch up on my Project Life pages. I fell behind mid February and was unable to get back into it until this week. I simply don't have the energy or the brain power to sit in front of the computer lately. I know that is because I recently started working a few hours everyday and that basically kicks my butt big time. That is also the reason why I have been very quiet around here lately.

But here are four weeks of Project Life for your viewing pleasure!
