Today we have the awesome Sara Case Strickland with us to show off the project she made with Farmhouse Paper's 302 Collection. Her enthusiasm about this collection is contagious, I am almost sorry I sent it along and didn't keep it for myself.

When the box of Farmhouse product showed up on my doorstep, I was thrilled and immediately had two ideas pop into my head. As I pulled everything out and started working with it, I was even more in love with it! Unfortunately, there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to make all the projects I want to make! Today I’ll share three with you, but keep an eye out – I’m sure there will be more!
The chipboard pieces in this collection are super fun and vintage, and I want to use them all! As soon as I saw the clocks, I knew I had to make a layout they would fit into.
Aren’t they perfect? A great embellishment without being too big or taking away from the pictures.
These little words are part of the chipboard as well, and worked great on a label I trimmed into a flag:
I love, love, love Farmhouse sticker packs – you get a ton and they’re always great images! To me, the labels and days of the weeks were just begging for a mini album.
Once I had all the labels attached and noticed how much the pages looked like a file folder, I had to bind the album at the bottom, letting the pages fan out on top. I kept it simple inside, adding a one photo a day from last year’s Week in the Life project with Ali Edwards.
It’s a great way to have a quick overview of the week and still make a tiny album that my daughter can take with her.
Finally, I loved the pop of yellow in the BTW paper pack but it’s not a colour I would normally use. Luckily for me, my best friend has a daughter who loves that colour! I had a large wooden initial purchased for her that I hadn’t gotten around to altering yet and decided that now was the perfect time.
I punched hearts from the yellow patterned paper in the FYI paper pack and added more chipboard at the bottom, keeping the whole thing pretty simple.
Now I just have to do a letter for her sister, my god-daughter, before it looks like I’m picking favourites!
