Project Life 2013 Week 3

Project Life Week 3

Week 3 of Project Life went a lot easier for me than last week.  On Saturday I realized I had almost no pictures and ended up taking a ton on Sunday.  It was enough that I ended up with an insert.

 I used a Design J protector that is perfect for Instagram pics.

I am much happier with my title card this week.  I used DIY Thickers and Reflections glitter for the lettering.  I think the teal on top of the orange really pops.  The "Love This" arrow is from the It's Your Day stampset from CTMH.  I stamped quite a few of these at the beginning of the month so you will probably see them a few times more. 

The  Lorax image I found on the internet and just printed it up.  I am digging that I included a cut up Applebees gift card holder and journaled inside the apple white space.

I am in love with the Studio Calico Wood Veneer stars.  I used them in a couple of spaces.  I do need to make a repair to my album.  The insert photos keep sliding out and I should just bite the bullet and sew the pockets closed but I am scared! My sewing machine is brand new and hasn't even been threaded yet!

Supplies Used:

 Studio Calico Block Party kit
CTMH It's Your Day stampset
Smash Polka dot washi
Random star washi
Studio Calico Wood Veneer Stars

Project Life 2013 Week 2

Here is my week 2 from my Project Life album.  I got a little behind on over the last couple of weeks.  Hence the reason there wasn't any updates.  I was working on the album slowly, I just got stuck on a couple of elements.
 This week is mainly about photos and stories.  I didn't go too crazy on the embellishments because I was behind.  I think I am still finding my PL stride.  It will probably take a few more weeks to really get in the groove.
 I have to be honest, I think my title card sucks.  I was uninspired and I ended up just using a EK Success alpha stickers for week and Thickers for the 2.  Nothing else added.  Boring but it gets the job done. 
Dealing with the pictures and puzzle from the Kinder egg is really what hung we up this week.  I wanted to include the puzzle because it is so much better to have it in a book than in pieces on my living room floor.  I also wanted to include a picture of Connor with the remnants of an egg. I ended up using the wrapper too.

Supplies used:
Studio Calico Block Party Project Life kit
Cobalt Core Kit
Becky Higgins Design A Page Protectors
Nisa Fiin Monthly Cards
Close to my Heart (CTMH) It's Your Day stampset
CTMH Silver Glitter tape

Project Life 2013 Week 1

Yay!  I am on track!  I have finished Week 1 and week 2 photos have been printed!  I am really enjoying this project this year.
I really think that having a photo printer at home is really helping me to keep up.

 I have covered a picture up in my album.  It is my son sitting on the toilet.  I just don't think I want that out on the internet.  He would be so embarrassed when he gets older.
This is my favorite card I have made.  I have fallen in LOVE with the alpha stickers.  They are from my Studio Calico kit and they are manufactured by Basic Grey.  I will be scouring scrapbooking stores for these because they are awesome.  The stickers are on 80# cardstock so they have some structure to them and aren't all floppy.  I must have my preciouses in every color and size!
