Those tough decisions

I’m not kidding this is one of the toughest decisions… 
what Project Life edition do I go with for 2013???
but no really it is.
This will be how your entire 3rd year scrapbook will look like, and as always Becky doesn’t make it easy….
She finds the BEST designers out there. So here is the two choices and I’ll need help from our readers to decide which to go with-
Seafoam by Elise Cripe
I’ve been a fan of Elise forever. Let’s say its a big crush okay… secretly I stalk her blog so much it comes up as frequent sites and its bookmarked in my top 10 links. 
I love Seafoam’s simplicity and graphics. I love nothing more than a nice chevron. I’m kinda afraid that it might be too “boyish” for her album. I always like when there is black as part of the kit because I write everything in black. 
next is 
Olive by Heather Bailey 
now I’m new to Heather Bailey, but Becky didn’t slip on the decision to bring her on!! I’m so in love with this color scheme. I feel a true Emma feel to it. Its full of strong graphics and great layout for the journal cards. The only thing that scares me is how “strong” of a kit that it is. I never want the kit to overpower. There isn’t black in the kit either, so I’m not sure about what color I would do all my journaling in… I really don’t like to do colors simply because I want the journaling to stand out! 
hmmmm told you, tough decisions.
So please help!!!

  1. Hi-I like your blog name. Very cute idea. I also LOVE Heather Bailey. All her stuff is good!!! I am over from the hop your newest follower!!! Hope you have a great

  2. Hi Susan. Those choices are all so pretty. I need to get myself motivated to begin a baby's 1st year scrapbook soon. I've got all the wares, but none of the drive. Happy mixing!

  3. I like the first one too – but I like simple. What a great idea! I started a scrapbook when my daughter was born… I think… and she's now almost 2 and I have no idea where it is… Great job for keeping at it!

  4. I adore turquoise so I'm partial to all the turquoise designs. Following you from the blog hop. Would love for you to visit my page and say hi! Have a great weekend and thanks for co-hosting.

  5. Well, you know my vote :-)I designed the cards to be mellow if you combine cards that are the same base color in one layout. Say, green cards together, or dove-colored cards together. I have some layouts that show how this works that Becky or I will post down the line. When the cards are all laid out together, like in the photo above, the set reads much differently than it would read in use, where one page is blue, another is pink, another is gray, etc. There are four palettes within the collection.Beyond that, the photo up there really doesn't do the colors justice. They aren't so acidic and crazy in real life.As for journaling, I would go with a dark brown pen or a black one. Most photos have some dark colors in them that balance with the journaling text in a layout.Glad to see your great post! And thanks for saying hello over at my blog. I'm glad to get to know you via your blog.xoโ€”Heather
