Hello again! I present to you a complete Week 7 of my Project Life 2013. I'm back to including a bunch of my original stamps this week. The look is a bit more graphic and bold than I was imagining but I'm pleased with it anyway.
This first photo is the two page spread with an insert in the middle. It is a Design A page protector folded in half.
Here is the left side again wiht the other side of the insert. That bright red decorative tag is Martha Stewart. I wrote the details of Grandpa's birthday cake on the backside. I loved the pop of red and a place for the eyes to rest in this busy layout.
The far right page of the main layout. The XOXO pattern is from a stamp that I made. On Valentine's Day I walked past a car with gift bags in the back seat. They had XOs on the bag with hearts inside the "O"s. I went home and made this stamp. FUN! The heart journaling card was made using a border rub-on I've had for probably 2 years.
These two stamps - cupcake stamp & banner stamp - have shown up in my Project Life album before. They are perfect to acknowledge birthdays of course. The banner can be used for any occasion of celebration. And it was so SIMPLE & quick to make. Look how simple the shapes are.
I almost forgot to mention the movie camera stamp in the very first photo. I have been visualizing that one for a few weeks. I plan to use it every time I feature a photo where my kids are filming or working on one of their movies. I will likely also use it on journaling cards when that is the subject.
Well that's pretty much it for Project Life Week 7. Thanks for stopping by!
WEEK EIGHT - A Little Preview
I thought you might enjoy this journaling card I made for Little League opening day. It will show up in my Project Life Album for Week 8.
Did you watch the Oscars on Sunday?
Will you mention the 2013 Oscars in your Project Life album? If so, you might enjoy this link to a printable page of all the nominees. I reduced the size and will fold it accordian style and slip it into one of my journaling pockets (3x4). I will circle the winners as well as my predictions. FUN!
QUESTIONS FOR YOU
1) I hope to include something about Girl Scout cookies in next week's album. I'm saving all of our boxes (I was a Girl Scout myself for many years) - any good ideas for adding them in? Links to inspiration?
2)What are your favorite screen shots to take and include in your Project Life album? I love all of the iPhone text conversations I've been seeing. The formatting is great and the conversations so meaningful. Almost worth getting an iPhone for that alone!
Do you have a Project Life board on PINTEREST? If so, leave me a link to your board in the comments and I'll follow you. I love finding more friends to share inspriation. If you'd like to check out my Project Life board, go here. And here's a link to my PROJECT LIFE FREEBIES board as well
