Special Project

Happy Tuesday,
I'm working (slowly) on a special project for one of my BEST friends! (I have shared this with her already, so she knows I'm posting it publicly). In (I believe) May/June of 2015 my best friend called me with some news (she lives in Washington)...she asked if I have room for 3 babies in my heart. I was thinking they are getting more dogs! Nope... she was pregnant... with triplets! So fast forward. They were born premature in November of 2015 (all are healthy 1 year olds now).

So, since my life is getting into a better routine and I'm done with school... I finally have time to work on their baby albums!! YEA! So yesterday I started and got 1 page done for each kid. I'm going to be putting this together in a 4x6 album or 6x8 album. I have not decided yet. And like I said...slow process still. But I wanted to share with you what I have so far!

Oh and one quick thing...don't forget to follow my NEW Instagram: LaceyAnnDesigns. I will be doing a giveaway soon!

They have 2 boys and 1 girl! 

The layouts above were based on the Clique Kits: March 2017 Kit - Play (available a la carte in their shop). The collection that this kit is based around is Shimelle - Little By Little, which is perfect for starting these album. You can see I can make it very girly or add those boyish touches! The letter stickers are from other collections and things I had in my stash.

Products: Clique Kits: March 2017 Kit - PlayAlphas: Simple Stories (Sn@p: Typeset; DIY: Letter Stickers); American Crafts (Saturday Collection Thickers - Petals Black & White; Cedar Lane: Glitter Thickers); Jillibean Soup: Alphabeans

I'm Back

Hello, I'm back. I'm not sure how often I will blog, but I want to share my projects and be able to link products that I used and I find this to be the best platform to do so.

I'm into documenting Travelers notebook style. I find it fits my lifestyle better. It's a smaller spread and I feel like I am documenting things that reflect me more then just creating a layout. My latest spread includes my Starbucks drink and cake pop. I had two dreams in one night about wanting dessert. So I figured why not get some and document about it.

I had these adorable coffee ephemera pieces from Pretty Little Studio I wanted to use and they matched well with my Clique Kits Travelers Notebook kit that we released in February (now sold out, but I'll link to items that coordinate with that kit below).

Here is my workspace. At this stage I'm just trying to figure out what I want to go together. I created that embellishment cluster using Crate Paper: Oasis ephemera and some exclusive Clique Kits ephemera.

The spread coming together. I added that adorable coffee ephemera from Pretty Little Studio and what I think took me the longest time was finding black alphabet stickers to spell out my title.

The final result! I love how this spread turned out! The Clique Kits Travelers Notebook kit is so fresh and bright and I love how it paired with all the elements of this spread!

Thanks for stopping today. I hope to update this blog more often with projects I create and to share with you where I'm getting the products!
