Project Life Week 14

Hello all, I am here with our busy Spring Break week. I tried to give the  girls some things to do during the week, we got haircuts, went to Canstruction and the NYS Museum, the Zoo and Erie Canal Museum, out to dinner, a birthday party and a sleepover at Nana and Grampy's.  For this week I used all Echo Park Photo Freedom line. Wow, talk about versatile, they have many patterned papers, journal cards, prewritten cards of both sizes, alpha/number, day/month, and various other stickers. I love the colors from this line, its like a mini project life kit in itself.  So here we go...

There, that was the main week, now onto the inserts. I used Designs F and G as well as 2 6x12's and 2 Staples brand 8 1/2x 11. Yes I am aware that husband has not contributed any of his journaling yet, but I didn't want to wait forever to post! The first insert is of the Canstruction and the NYS Museum, followed by the map of the Museum.


Then  2 inserts of the Rosamond Gifford Zoo.

Next  I have a Random Thoughts page with were we went that day on the back. An insert holding our maps and brochures.


The next insert is of our trip to the Erie Canal Museum on the front, and my nieces birthday on the back. I then added our menu from dinner.


Ok, that's it, are you on PL overload yet? Thanks for stopping by, I will have week 15 for you soon, it is complete.

Project Life Week 13

Welcome back! I have week 13 for you today. This was the week of Easter, so I got to break out the pretty colors. I used Echo Park Sweet Girl line, and LOVED it! I bought the extra journal page as well as the stickers for this line as well.


I was so happy with how this week turned out. After a long winter its nice to break out the bright festive colors! I used journal cards from the Project Life  Blush line, as well as grid cards. I used alphas from the Sweet Girl line,  Dear Lizzy puffy alphas from Thickers  and from Basic Grey. The tags were from Elle's Studio, Chic Tags and October Afternoon.

I had one insert and it was for Easter. We had none of they young siblings for Easter, so there was no egg hunt. Pretty basic day really, very relaxed.

Well, that's it. I have week 14 done as well so I will be posting that soon. That was a very big week with lots of inserts due to it being Spring Break for the girls. Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again.

Project Life Week 12

Hello everyone, it has been a while! I finally completed a very big week of Project Life. Megan had her school play at the end of this week, so the week before is always hectic. Hopefully you are not totally bored by all the "Hello Dolly" talk.   The first is a pic of the full week without any inserts in it. Next will be of each side individually.


  For this week I used DIY from Crate Paper. The vintage feel just seemed fitting for the week. For the alphas I used Basic Grey, Oh Snap,  Pebbles, and Echo Park. I used journal cards from Project Life ( including the new Jade line- HSN), and one from the Studio Calico Project Life kit. I pulled labels from the Crate Paper coordinating sticker sheets as well as from Jillibean and October Afternoon. I added a number from Basic Greys Hey Boy line, and a arrow and chick wood veneer from Studio Calico. My Tim Holtz stapler is always in the list of "used" items as well.

I have many inserts included in this week... memorabilia from the play, 2 of play pics, our church program/thank you letter from the play directors, and Megan's music. This is probably one of my favorite things about Project Life. I have always  been a saver of little mementos, and this really allows me to keep them with the actual moments. I would never want to add them when I was scrapbooking because I felt it took away from the beautiful layout ( I mean, can you believe they don't coordinate the ticket stubs/programs/receipts etc, to match MY scrapbook spreads!)  Well, on with the pics now.


For the journal card on the above insert I will be adding the names of my daughters friends she is in the pictures with. I have learned the hard way not to assume on the spelling of their names! There are many that are not the way I would expect! So they will be added.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks spread, it was so nice to relive the fun from the week. See you again soon, I week 13 almost completed, and the future weeks are also in full progress.

Project Life Week 10

Hello everyone! As some of you may know, I mentioned I needed to skip week 10 because I needed pics from someone else. I decided to show the week and the front of the insert and not worry about the back of the insert. For this week I used Pebbles Walnut Grove collection. I loved working with this line, the colors were so vibrant!

As always you will find some form of Thickers in my layouts, as well as an October Afternoon label or two. I also used the label paper from October Afternoons Farm Girl line, Martha Stewart labels, an arrow sticker and veneer stars from Studio Calico and Tiny Tim. I also purchased the sticker sheet and washi sheet to go with the Walnut Grove line. I also used some journal cards from a Pebbles journal stack.

Here are a couple close ups.

This is the front side to the insert, the back is still waiting for pics.

Enjoy, I am almost done with week 12, will post soon. Its a big week, lots of inserts for the Hello Dolly play my daughter was in. Come back again.
