Project Life Seasonal Snap Shot - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

October has to be one of my favorite months of the year. I love the colors, the crisp air, the pumpkin spice, the sweaters, the boots. Over the years October has become a very sentimental month ...

I met my Husband in October of 1998.
We took possession of our first home in October (16 years ago!).
Two of my children are born in October.
We took possession of our cabin last October.

I can not believe it has been a year since we purchased the cabin! We have made so many memories there over the last 12 months. This past weekend we enjoyed the great outdoors and took a nature walk with the kids. The pictures do not do the breath taking colors any justice.

The Seasonal Snapshot Project Life Collection from Stampin' Up! was perfect to preserve the memories from our weekend. I love that the kit includes cards for the entire season ... back to school, autumn, thanksgiving, winter and Christmas.

I printed my photos at 4"x4" at London Drugs here in Edmonton. I have to admit that I do not print photos very often. Usually when I am scrapbooking I am rushing to do a layout for a class or a blog post and I print them on my home printer. This takes way to much ink and time. I think I need to make a resolution to print my photos ... maybe I will set an alarm in my iphone to remind myself to print them at the end of each month.

I do wish that I had printed some photographs at 4"x6" ... as I get better at doing Project Life layouts I think I will be able to pick a few images at the larger size when I am printing. With online printing it is just a click of a mouse, I just need to take a minute to pick my faves!

For the layouts I used the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot Bundle! At a 15% savings you receive the Project life Card Collection, the Accessory Pack and the Seasonal Snap Shot Photopolymer stamp set!
140308  $47.25 CAD
I always buy the Accessory Packs for my Project Life Card Collections (How can you not? They are so cute!). The Seasonal Snapshot accessory pack is huge! I wanted to keep all of the bits together so I used a empty Stampin' Up! Wide Stamp Case to store them (Did you know you can buy new empty cases?). The Card Collections come with two stickers to label the outside of the card box. I used one of these sticker to label my case with the coordinating accessories!

I hope that I have inspired you to do some memory keeping with Project Life. I know we all have those photos on our phone and computers. I challenge you to print them each month! Do you think if we check in with each other we will keep it up?!
