Project Life Sunday: Week 50

Happy Sunday! Welcome to Project Life Sunday! In an effort to get caught up and give my blog some love I will be posting Project Life Spreads every Sunday! YAY! If you want to see other things I do around blog land remember to follow me on Instagram (jenniegarcian) and Facebook

I know, eww but sometimes life is gross. LOL My girls were sick and for the first time in a few days my baby was laughing so I wasn't looking for a booger photo bomb, it just happened. 

For this spread I used the Super Cute Mini Kit from Project Life. It looks like the My Girl Collection from American Crafts. The cream alphas are from Basic Grey and I love them! 

I don't know about you but I'm nosy so I love to see what everyone writes on their Currently List Card. If you are nosy too just check out the #currentlylist on Instagram. Love the bubble speech die cuts! They are from Pretty Little Studio! For the week title I used Thickers.

This map stamp/die is from Lawn Fawn I colored the states with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. All the puffy stickers are from Freckled Fawn. To glue everything I used Tombow Adhesives specially the Tombow Mono Adhesive Permanent. 

I kept this one really simple. One of my things for this year will be simplicity. I'm hoping that will allow me to make more pages! 
Have a great Sunday!
Take Care!

Project Life: Week 43!

Happy Monday! 
For those in the U.S. I hope you are having a great holiday!
My ordeal to get slightly caught up on Project Life continues...
I had the right part of this spread done but I still needed to finish the left.

 The papers I used for this spread are from the 6x6 Miss Caroline Pad from My Mind's Eye. It's an oldie but a goodie that I have been hoarding.

This second part I made it using a few of the Creative Retreat Kits

I love making title cards! I used washi and wood veneers from Freckled Fawn, Thickers and an ancient brad that I got in a crop I had with dinosaurs. 

My daughter was not feeling the photo. I bet you can't tell. LOL

For more details about the second part of this layout check out THIS POST with links to the Creative Retreat Kits I used! 

To glue the wood veneers I used my BFF the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive!

I'm going to try posting Project Life Spreads every Sunday! I hope that will motivate me to make extra spreads each week!
Remember to stalk me on social media (inks on the right) to get updates of my projects!  See you next week! Take Care!

CHA Make and Takes with instructions!

I wish I could've taken all of you with me! I really do! But since I know many of you couldn't be there, here are the instructions for the make and takes I did while I was working at the Tombow USA Booth! Thanks to our partners: Fancy Pants Designs, My Mind's Eye, Jillibean Soup, Core'dinations, Walnut Hollow, Prima Marketing Inc., May Arts Ribbon, Sizzix, DCWV and Canvas Corp!

Tombow Adhesives:

Tombow Xtreme Tough Tabs Tombow Adhesive Dots

To make the inside of the matchbox use a piece of 5 ¼ inch x 6 ¾ inch paper. Score the paper at 7/8 inch on each side. *Tip: Score on the inside of paper (what will be the inside of the box). Make   horizontal cuts on the 5 ¼ inch x 6 ¾ inch paper but stop on the vertical score marks. Put the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the little squares on the outside so you can adhere them inside of the big rectangle. Create the outside of the box with a 10 x 5 inch piece of paper. Score at 1 inch, 4 ½ inch, 5 ½ inch and 9 inch. Apply Tombow Xtreme Adhesive to the corner of the score mark at 1 inch and adhere it to the inside of the big rectangle to create your box. Now decorate your box! Wrap the yellow tulle around the box and tie it in the front. Hold it in place using a Tombow Adhesive Dot. Use the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the back of the tag and place it on the box. Glue the burlap bow with a Tombow Xtreme Tough Tabs and glue a button on top using the Tombow Adhesive Dots.

Tombow Adhesives:

Tombow Xtreme Tough Tabs
Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue

Cut all the pieces for your book and fold them in half. Use a piece of paper to make a template for the holes on the spine. You are going to make holes at 1 ½ , 2, 2 ½ , 3 ½ , 4 and 4 ½ inches. Place this paper on the center of the bundle of pages and hold it with a paper clip while you make the holes using a paper piercer. Then remove the template to sew. To thread the twine, it helps to put a little bit of the Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue on the tip. Leave at least 3 inches of twine outside the third hole to make a bow at the end. Start sewing, from the outside of the spine you going to get in through the third hole (at 2 ½ inches). Once inside you go up a hole (at 2 inches), and when you are outside go in through the top hole (at 1 ½ inches). Then go back down to the 2 inch mark and go back in through the 2 ½ inch mark. Go out through the fourth hole (at 3 ½ inches), then back in to the one below (4 inches). Get back out through the last one, then up to the 4 inches hole and finally go out through the 3 ½ inches hole and tie a bow with the pieces of twine. Now decorate the brag book using the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, glue the brag card, the tag and the ticket. Tie a bow on the twine on the tag and add a clothespin. To glue the flair button use the Tombow Xtreme Tough Tabs

Cut the gift bag using a Sizzix die. Fold the score marks and put the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the small flaps from the pieces on the side. Glue the flap from the bottom first and then mold the sides to the big part of the purse. Once it’s assembled decorate the bag with the Jillibean Card using the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, then add the Prima Flower with the Tombow Adhesive Dot and finally add a few enamel dots.

Start by coloring the skin with the Irojiten Color Pencils using a soft circle motion. Start with the darkest color next to the hair. Then gradually use lighter colors. Don’t color the eyes and lips yet. Then use the 020 Peach Dual Brush Pen to blend the colors on the skin. For the makeup use the DL-06 Hummingbird as a liner, the DL-05 Verdigris under the eyebrow and the rest color in VP-05 Asparagus. For the lips, color with F-01 Plastic Pink between the lips and on the corner and color the rest with VP-02 Almond Blossom when you are done blend it all with a 761 Carnation Dual Brush Pen. Now move onto the hair, color the green strands of hair first and then color the brown portion of the hair make lines on the hair with the darkest color but just a portion of the hair (always leave a space without color so the next colors can look lighter) then using a lighter color pull that darker shade into it to blend it. At the end always use the lightest or scribble with the lightest shade you have on a Blending Palette and use the Colorless Blender to make an even lighter shade and use that at the end. Finally use the Tombow Adhesive Dots to glue the flowers and add the Crystals.

Run the the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the wooden frame. *The Adhesive is very strong and running it through the cork might break it. Remove the backing from the cork and place it on the frame. Take the backing off the piece of trim and place it on top of the paper semicircle. Cut 1/8 pieces of the Tombow Foam Tape and place them around the bottom of the semicircle to create a pocket. Keep them close together. Once you are done place it in the bottom of the frame. Glue the die cut to the paper on the frame using the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive. *Don’t put the glue on the top part that floats above the frame. Finally add enamel dots.

Using the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive glue the paper on the paper bag and then add the day arrow die cut. Find a spot to put the cork doily and put the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the paper. *This glue is very strong if you put it on the doily you might break it. For the same reason you should use the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the die cut and then put it on top of the doily. Finally add enamel dots.

Take the smaller piece and apply Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive to the back of the whole piece and fold it around the center of the main piece of the bow. Add this whole piece to the last piece using the Tombow Adhesive Dots. Finally add the whole bow to the frame using Tombow Xtreme Tough Tabs.

Project Life: Week 46

Hi Everyone! On Black Friday I got the Happy Core Kit from Project Life. I actually didn't need more kits but the colors are so bright it was too cute to resist!

I used lots of embellishments, mostly stickers, from Freckled Fawn.

This layout looks very light and it's because I used the Instant filter of my camera a lot! I take most of my photos with my cell phone which is very convenient since I can edit them with Pic Tap Go.

The labels I use in this layout and most of my layouts are free Print and Cut Files that I've found on Pinterest. These two are my favorite and they are from: Vanessa at Happy-Ness and Kaitlin Sheaffer had labels in every awesome color! 

For this Currently List card I used the Tombow Dual Brush Pens to give it a watercolor effect. I used a Crate Paper Instant Frame for this photo and I used flowers from the Freckled Fawn December Kit.

I've also been working on my You Tube Channel, I have lots of ideas for Process Videos in the future so make sure your Subscribe so you don't miss out! 
Take Care!

Project Life: Week 42

Happy Sunday! Another week of Project Life in the books!
Week 42 was pretty exciting!

For this layout I used papers from the True Friend Collection from Fancy Pants Designs.

I used lots of Freckled Fawn Embellishments on my Week like these alphas from the October Kit! 

I love putting clothing tags on my PL Spread.

For both Title cards I used Fancy Pants Designs Frames and Freckled Fawn Alphas.

I like to use Apps like Pic Stitch, A Beautiful Mess and Rhonna Designs to make my photos fit in a square, make collages or to add embellishments. 

To glue my wood veneers I use the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive.

I hope you liked these pages!

Tombow USA Blog Hop with Guest Designer Jen Goode

Hi and Welcome to the Tombow USA Blog Hop 
with Guest Designer Jen Goode!
You probably came from Melissa's Blog but if you happened to stumble across my blog to the Tombow USA Blog to start

This is my Project Life Spread for Week 41. 
It was a busy week so I had to add an insert.

To glue all the papers I used the Tombow Mono Adhesive Permanent. All the papers are from Dear Lizzy.

The wooden buttons come with a foam dot on the back but since the button is bulky enough I take off the foam dot and I use the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive

To glue the cork embellishments, the yellow and orange alphas I use the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

To glue wood veneers I also use the

If you haven't typed your photos with a typewriter you should try it! I love how it looks! 

Here is the insert. 
I cut off one of the sides on a Design F Page Protector.

To make my collages I use the PicStitch App (I Phone). I also do my 3x4s with that app, that way I can use more photos on a spread.

Most of the embellishments and stamps from this spread are from Freckled Fawn.

Confetti pocket, of course.

I colored this 5 wood number from Studio Calico with the Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

The prize for this hop is the NEW Tombow Bright Dual Brush Pens! To be qualified please comment on all the designers projects.
