12/16/19 - "Use Your Stuff Challenge" #388

The Challenge this week at "Use Your Stuff" is super simple: Christmas!

Speaking of... who's ready?
I'm not, but then I never really am, but this year seems to be the worst!!!
Ugh, double Bah-Humbug!
Thank Goodness for Amazon's 1 day shipping, LOL

Anyway, onto my project
I created this Project Life page insert of a recent outing with friends:

I actually jumped ahead in my Project Life album because I wanted to scrap some Christmas photos, I mean 'tis the Season right? Plus I really love these photos, and the photos on the flipside, which are not Christmas related at all, but I'm still going to share:

This is one page but it has a flip card feature so I'm showing you "closed" (left) and "open" (right).
Those Simple Stories flip pockets really come in handy!
With that extra pocket I was able to have a title card, a journaling card and include a bonus photo of the adorable llama I got to see! ::mega heart eyes::
If you didn't already know I love llamas (and alpacas...yes they're different)!

Looking at these inserts now I realize, except for the cards and a few stickers I actually really kept them fairly simple and... I like it!
I really need simple in my life right now!

Product details:

All the embellishments and most of the pocket cards are from Elle's Studio.

  1. Love love love this! Loving how you included the flip pockets!!!

  2. Ho Ho Ho! Love your spread! You are inspiring me to start Project Life in 2020!!
    I need simple in my life too trust me!

  3. I need really simple in my life, too! I'd usually be ready for Christmas long before mid-December, but not this year. I'm not sure where the time has gone. Great pages - the flip cards are so much fun, but I can barely look at anything besides the Cookie'wich.

  4. Better simple and done rather than complicated and incomplete. LOVE the flip pocket.:)

    P/s: I buy my pressies earlier in the year when there are sales. I can't deal with crowds.

  5. Love that you used "non-Christmas" colors :D


Thanks for all your comments!!! They really mean a lot to me!!!
