Project Life with Christine and Valentine Decor by Natalie

Christine is a girl after my own heart! Organization AND cuteness. Who could ask for more? Have you caught the Project Life bug like many of us? Check out what Christine has done and maybe make a few of your own. Be sure to hop over to her blog because she has great instructions and pictures to help you make your own cute organization. 
I’m working hard at doing a Project Life style album this year for my family.  I have to say that it is very different than the way I normally scrapbook.  Everything from the product, information documented, style, and organization.  So I thought that I would tackle a couple of these issues before it got too late and I was overwhelmed.  I really like to be organized so this was a top priority for me.  Since I don’t have any official PL supplies besides the page protectors, I am having to make everything from scratch.  (I am actually waiting for the Lori Whitlock Honey Collection, Love It!)  (have to say, so am I)
When I can, I have been cutting journaling cards or design elements and I needed somewhere to store them.  I came across this Crate with Handle Box file in Lori’s store and thought it would be the cutest box to keep all of those cards in.  They were also so easy to put together.  

Here are a couple of things that I have been collecting for future weeks of Project Life.  The die cuts that you see are called 5 Chevrons and are new in the shop!  
Natalie has created an amazing chalkboard decoration for her home.
As Valentines Day gets close, I get more and more in the mood to make hearts, cookies and just fun stuff.  The other day I went to Home Depot, looking for “something” to make a Valentine sign for my front porch, but, came back with a giant chalkboard.  They had pre-made chalkboard and even dry erase boards that I knew needed to come home with me.  So this project was born.
Since I didn’t have to cut wood or paint, this came together really fast.  I just picked some of my favorite Valentine files from Lori’s shop, and cut them out of hot pink, light pink and white vinyl.    This thing is big, 2 feet by 4 feet actually.  So my vinyl shapes were big too… I took out the you from the phrase file, and added a little heart to the O.  It turned out so cute, and my kids loved it when they saw it, and lots of little pictures and words have already been drawn all over it.  I plan on changing it once a day until Valentines.  I’ve already been asked numerous times when it’s their turn to be on the board!  Happy Valentines!
All the files I used were from Lori Whitlock’s store:
