Welcome to Project Life 2012 | Week Three.
It’s really hard to beat having a pile of just-printed photos.
My routine these last few weeks has been to print all my photos on Monday (my weeks go Monday to Sunday). I look back over the photos taken in the past week and hit print on whichever ones I like best (or whichever ones catch my attention).
Some of these in the photo above didn’t end up making it into my spread this week. I’m thinking I’ll just add them to next week.
Here’s a look at Week Three:
Being a birthday week I expected to have at least one insert to accommodate the number of photos. I ended up with two as you will see below.
I have to say that I’m really loving the Clementine journal cards. I feel like there is more space to write compared with last year (and I feel like I’m taking advantage of that so far).
We began our week with a dusting of snow (and that was it – just a dusting). On the top right photo I added a Hello Winter Brushes & Stamps (“heart snow”) by cutting it out with the Silhouette and then stapling it with the Tiny Attacher. On the bottom left photo I added some word art from my Sibling Brushes & Stamps. The photo of me and the big white balloon was a self-portrait for the February One Little Word prompt.
I also included one Instax Mini photo out of front door into the snow.
The first insert for this week uses the Design G Page Protectors. I decided to use this entire insert for things related to Simon’s birthday.
On the kraft piece of paper are the names of the kids Simon invited – he and Chris worked on the invitations together.
I used my Silhouette for two more things. The January frame is from the Hello Life Boxes Vol.2 package and the number 10 card is from my 3×4 Rounded Number Corner Cards package. Behind the #10 card I added a piece of Hambly Studios 12×12 Overlay Moustaches.
That “big day” date stamp is part of the new Dear Lizzy line from American Crafts (love it).
On the back I included a pirate napkin from the party. On top of the napkin I added Moss Notched Corners Labels from Paper Source and journaled about the party right on top.
I blurred the faces of the kids faces who attended the party.
The second insert is a We R Memory Keepers 8.5×11. Love this treasure hunt that Chris came up with – especially the part about the notorious pirate George.
On the back of this second insert I included the cards he received and a copy of the invitation.
After all that I really love how this page is just a bunch of words and photos. Photos + journal cards + a few little labels to identify photos. Love how this can be anything you want it to be.
