Project Life: Week 7

This year is going by so fast!  I can’t believe that 7 weeks of 2012 are already gone. Sometimes I don’t love that times goes by so fast, but I do love that I have those weeks documented for my family.

This week was a really full week for us.  I recently started using Instagram and this week I took a lot of pictures using that app.  So much fun! I’m enjoying learning about all the different filters.  My instagram user name is iamjujublog if you would like to follow me.  If you use instagram too leave your user name in the comments and I’ll follow you back.

So let’s take a look at this week’s pages shall we?  I had 2 inserts this week.  One is a baseball card page protector and the second is my weekly 6×12 page protector with a blog post from last week.  This week I wrote about the speculation of Halle Berry’s daughter being autistic that was in the news.  You can read that post here. Below is the entire spread, including the 2 inserts.

Here is the layout without the inserts.  On the left I used the backside of Design B and the right side is Design F.  I’ve really enjoyed mixing up my page protectors. Keeps me from getting bored.

The left side of the layout I added an old, but fun “everyday” embellishment from Scenic Route. Oh how I miss that company.  Loved their stuff.  I added the sticker from the pair of Toms I bought this past weekend along with the business card from Melrose Vintage, a lovely shop in Phoenix.  I spent the afternoon shopping with my sister Jenny and we picked up a cool vintage bread pan at another shop that I helped organize her project life goodies in.  You can see her post about that organization here.

Sorry about the glare on my pages.  The lighting in my house is a bit wonky today. The right side of the layout includes my movie photos which I combined into on 4×6.  I also added the red chevron bag that I picked up at Melrose Vintage.  I know that you can order them online from several different Etsy shops as well.  I added an old Scenic Route chipboard piece to the front of the bag.  The bag includes a note to my husband.  This was a great way to add a private note to him.

Here’s a close up view.  I loved the green “My Favorite” page that I tore out of one of my Smash pads.  I added some words that I read that are so powerful.  They were said by a gal named Amy Spencer.  She just published this new book.  I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!  The “Everyday Moments” & “Love this” is from the lovely Teresa Collins.

I used a baseball page protector to include a bunch of my instagram photos.  I used some of the older journal cards from a previous Becky Higgin’s kit to mount my photos on.  I got the “moments like this” journal card here.

The backside also includes a couple more instagrams, the packaging from the girls’ valentine’s candy they shared with their classes, & a few tags I had in my stash.

Here is a closeup shot of my blog post insert from this week.

So there you have it.  I am linking up again with The Mom Creative as well as One Happy Mama.  Head over to both of these links for some great Project Life inspiration.  If you have questions please leave them in the comments as I have had quite a few and I’m working on a post for this weekend that will answer them.

You can see my previous project life posts here.

Hope you all have a great week!

    • Thanks so much for stopping by! I got my chevron bags at a vintage/craft store in Phoenix, but I have seen them online in various etsy shops. I believe Michelle Wooderson had them at one point in her shop (Mish Mash). She is on the PL design team.

  1. Beautiful pages again! I love the variety of cards and inserts you’re using. The red chevron bag is too cute. The Teresa Collins everyday moments is cool too. I like how you’re using a mix of more than one BH design cards and cards from other sources. I’m doing that too, and somehow it all just seems to fit together, doesn’t it?

    • Thank you Jules! I love mixing up the journal cards & insert cards. I love the freedom that PL gives us to do that…no rules! Thanks for stopping by! Have a super week!

  2. I really like how you included the instagrams. I’m on instagram as well with username dailydwelling. I would love to include more of those in my layouts. I usually forget about them once they’re shared.

    • Thanks Monica! I’ll have to add you on Instagram. I love adding those little photos because I always have my iPhone with me so I tend to take lots of photos with it.

      Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

    • Thank you so much! I love adding the different food packages. Both of my girls are pretty picky eaters so if they try a new food I always try to add that packaging in. I loved the colors that the candy packaging added to my layouts this week.

      Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. As always, I love your pages. I love the little red zig-zag bag. I have a thing for zig-zag prints right now. Super fun. It just adds a fun punch to a page. And I like the photo of the kids standing on the kiddy picnic table.

    Lovely pages!

  4. Love all the extras you put into your pages! love the bag with the note and the packaging from the Valentine candy is too cute!!

    I read your post about Hallie Berry and her child and you were spot on with your view of it. I have never understood why people think just because someone who is a celebrity that they HAVE to share their private life. if her daughter does indeed have autism, I’m sure she is going through an emotional time.

    • Thanks so much Jenn! I love those Chevron bags too!

      Thanks for your thoughts on my Halle Berry post. I was so shocked by the article that said she should be a spokesperson. I remember thinking “What if she doesn’t want to be!”.

      Have a great week!

  5. I LOVE your blog and your PL layouts!!!

    I have a question for you … what is the significance of the 10 of hearts playing card? I’ve seen it on seveal different blogs and PL layouts and would love to find out what it stands for. TIA for your answer!

    • Hi Karen! Thanks so much!

      The 10 of hearts playing card is one of the insert cards from the Clementine kit. I just used it this week since it was Valentine’s Day. I saw that several other people had as well.

      Thanks so much for stopping by & I hope you have a great week!

  6. I just love your pages this week. I love all the little extra cards in place of pictures…the little badge, the mosquito, inserting candy boxes! The pages are full of color and so fun to look at. Great job…thanks for the inspiration.

  7. hi julie, love your pages again this week, lov’in the F design pockets, so have to get some of them, all the different journaling blocks are great, love the teresa Collins stuff, well done

    • Thank you Sara! I love using the baseball card protectors. It’s a fun way to add extra stuff without having to use another 12×12 page. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  8. Love the combination of B and F. That F page protector had me at Hello. Love it. Loving all of your instagram pictures and you are way better at those than me. So happy you listened to your big sister and joined the PL party! She is such a wise woman.

  9. Love your pages, especially the way you switch up the page protectors. Hopefully mine get here soon so I can try out some new designs also! I really love the inspirational saying you added too, may just have to borrow that one!!

  10. thanks for stopping by my blog. LOVE your pages–love all the little bits of daily life you add in there! how do you print instagrams? can you do it without having photoshop?
