Project Life January 2016 Layouts

Project Life January 2016 Layouts - Sahin Designs
Hi guys! Carolina here again still amazed about being part of the members who is designing with Sahin’s beautiful designs.
Today I would like to share with you the first and second spread of my January Project Life for this year. Not only the Midnight Collection has those great colors that made up a soft and elegant palette but a hot pink that drew my attention and did not let me think at all about any other card! I actually thought through the next two layouts based on this 6×4 pink stripped card!
I am not much into bold colours or layouts but this one blew my imagination away! I could not stop my brainstorming.
The first layout ended up looking like this:

I have two girls so everything around my house is pink, perfect match! As before I used some of the cards from the collection but also elements to make journaling and decorative cards.
As it is the first month of the year, I wrote a bit of what is going on with my daughter, her achievement on using the pot to go the toilet 🙂 and what she likes, how she is, etc at this moment of the year.

As a highlight on this spread, I would like to mention that there was a moment that I was not happy with any of the cards placed on the top right corner. I eventually used some of the elegant patterned papers (that come with the bundle of elements and papers) to make a 3-circle template. A couple of soft embellishments like a nice alpha ‘hello’ (white on white of courrrrse!!) and the card was done. Thanks to the patterned papers!
Oh and on the left bottom corner, you can see the gorgeous stripped pink card which I fell in love with!

The calendar of this month I used as a card with a picture as the background is from past collections. I though it would be quite appropriate to use it on the first spread of the year!

The next layout is basically dedicated to my second daughter as to show the entrance of the new year with both! I am not sure whether I will make more layouts for this month of January though. I decided this year to go with the flow, just make as many layouts as time/pictures I have, so STRESS FREE Project Life! Yay!

I love going minimalist and show lots of white space with soft tones…it just makes me happy!
I used here some of the elements from the same collection and a few embellishments to finish it up!
Also wrote the same principles for my little Aleca 🙂

The closer looks just shows the minimalism I have chosen for this layout in particular.

On this closer look you can see I used an insta frame that comes with the collection to place my picture. At the bottom of it, I put with Photoshop a few of the scattered stars that come with the elements of this Midnight Collection and another arrow that I stapled down as to point at the journaling.

On this picture I just love the effect of transparency that the text ‘Something awesome is about to happen’ from the elements of the collection achieves… I printed the text straight on vellum and placed it inside the pocket! The effect is just magical!
The bike is an old embellishment of mine… too big for a small card but perfect size for a 4×6!
And that is basically my contribution for this month having fun with Sahin Designs!!
Hope you guys like it and wishing you a crafty and productive end of the month! Is it already finished? How?
