It’s hard to believe that we are already 8 weeks into 2012. Time is flying by! I am still LOVING documenting our everyday lives with Project Life. I kept things pretty simple this week. I love that with Project Life you can do as much or as little as you want. I have quite a few pictures & links to share with you so let’s get on with it!
Below is a shot of the entire week’s spread. I used the back of Design F on the left and good ‘ol trusty Design A on the right.
This week I used multiple Instagram pictures, a picture I snapped with my Instax Mini7S, a picture from my iPhone, as well as pictures using my big camera. Below is a close-up of the left page.
I really love the design F page. I love having lots of smaller pockets to work with. I of course added a picture of my “movie of the week”, along with the ticket stub and a few of my thoughts. I continue to love using the Martha Stewart labels to add my journaling. I also used paper clips to attach several of my photos to the journaling card. My sister uses paper clips quite a bit and I picked up a container of assorted colors at Staples this week. I love using everyday office supplies on my pages. The “Sure Do Love My Life” card is part of this set that was created by Kristina over at One Happy Mama and her friend Crystal. The set comes with so many cute downloads! I purchased the printable set, but she also has a digital set if you do PL digitally. I used several more on the right side of my page which is shown below.
This is my favorite part of my pages this week (and Chris’ too)! I enlarged a picture I took of Hailey feeding the ducks at the pond behind our house. It was a gorgeous day so the girls & I walked down & spent some time hanging out by the pond. I enlarged the photo to 8.5×11 and then trimmed it down to about 8×9.25 to fit into the pockets. I had seen this done on Kelly Purkey’s pages here and knew that I had to try it. I will definitely be doing this again! Below is a close-up.
The “Today Was A Great Day” and the “You Crack Me Up” cards are also from the set that I mentioned above. I knew that the picture I had of the girls making a “shocked” face standing next to the private property sign would be perfect attached to the “You Crack Me Up!” card.
Below is a close-up of the bottom of the right page.
I combined two pictures into a 4×6 using this tutorial by Ali Edwards that I’ve mentioned before. I also used another one of these flip up protectors to add a couple additional pictures. The picture below shows what is underneath.
All three labels that were used to journal above come from the Martha Stewart collection found at Staples.
I also plan on adding this post that I shared on my blog this week. It shows Skylar’s regression into autism in pictures. Because it is so picture heavy I am trying to figure out how to best include it. My thought is that it will take 2 of the 6×12 page protectors. In that post I shared how thankful I am that I have always taken lots of pictures. It’s not easy to see those pictures, but I am encouraged by the improvement we have seen over the past 10 years.
I also wanted to share a photo of the cool vintage card catalog drawer that I scored from a fun antique place in Phoenix. As soon as I saw it I knew that I wanted to use it for my PL journal cards. Removing them from the wooden box in this post, allowed me to free up room in the box for longer items. I LOVE having all my journal cards in one place. I’m going to make a fun label for the front with my Silhouette Cameo. Oh wait…I don’t have one of those. Oh well…maybe for my birthday!
Here’s a view from the top:
