Here we are at Week 10 of Project Life. I am keeping up and I'm so happy! Before we got on to the usual business of my weekly Project Life layout I have a special invitation for you.
An INVITATION to CELEBRATE
In case you hadn't noticed, the year is flying by! We are almost through the first quarter of 2013.
At the completion of Week 13 we will be 25% through the year. I want to keep myself motivated and accountable with Project Life so I want to throw myself a party for keeping up.
On Friday, April 12 (the week I complete my Project Life 13 spread), I will host a Blog Hop to celebrate.
Care to join me? It will be a great time to celebrate, pause for a moment and reflect on what we've accomplished, what we've learned and how the project is going so far.
**Whatever you have complete in your album is totally fine! No need to have the same criteria for goals as I do. You are more than welcome to participate regardless of how you are doing or your progress. The more the merrier!**
If you are interested in joining me or have any questions, please email me (link in my side bar under my photo). Put "2013 Project Life April Blog Hop" in the subject line and includeyour name & blog address in the message. I will compile a list of participants and email everyone in a week or so with more details.
If you have no idea what a blog hop is or which kind of blog hop I am talking about (I've seen a few different types of virtual events out there called "blog hops"), click this link or this link to see past blog hops I've hosted on my blog.
I hope you'll join me. It should be a lot of fun and who knows you may win a little prize!
This week I wanted to use a lot of my own stamps again. I only used a couple pre-printed journaling cards from my Project Life kits.
I primarily used 4x3 Grid Cards and decorated them with the stamps I designed myself or washi tape. (That link goes to 4x6 grid cards. I couldn't find any at amazon.com so perhaps they are sold out. I'm sure they will be back in stock as soon as possible if that is the case.)
I have two inserts this week. Sorry there is not a front view of my first insert. But you can look at my full spread photo to see it. It is the top two rows on the right side.
That stamp with a star in the center is one of my latest stamp designs. [Here is the post where I explain how I make them.]
To make this insert, I took leftovers from an insert I used a previous week and used several layers of washi tape to make strips to add three holes so I could add it into the 3-ring album.
This is the back side of the first insert. I made my own filler card making a pattern out of one of the stamps I made. The RIGHT NOW journaling card uses my own chevron stamp and two colors of ink. The bottom of the EPIC FREAK card is washi tape I got on sale at Michaels this week.
Here is the altered insert with washi tape a little closer up.
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.
Thanks for stopping by!
