Project Life 2013 | Week Five

Welcome to Project Life | Week Five.

Do you have a larger family and wonder how to make Project Life work for you? I posed this question of behalf of a reader on my Facebook page yesterday and there were some helpful responses. Check out that post here.

I've currently got couple weeks in progress on my table including all the photos for Week Six (need to add embellishments and more words) and a good start to this week that we are living right now. I go through phases on how I work on this project - sometimes it's very in the moment and other times I'm working on multiple weeks at the same time. For this week I did use a couple post-it notes to help me remember specific stories I wanted to tell (the one about the toilet and the other one about Simon's request when he got his hair cut).

This week includes my Day In The Life content from the last week of January.

I used a variety of different Thickers (letter stickers) this week from American Crafts: Orange Corrugated Ready Set Go, Corn Eric Foam, Black Journal Pumpkin Patch Glitter Foam.

IDEA | Add an initial letter sticker to a speech bubble. These are chipboard speech bubbles from Studio Calico. The letter stickers are from Jenni Bowlin (red, black).

The pink journal card is from the Mayfield Childhood Mini Kit. I'm loving the cards in each of the childhood mini kits. The "true story" chipboard arrow is from Studio Calico's

I'm using the opaque Project Life Dividers for each new month.

Excited to include a Day In The Life each month this year. You can read more about that here.

On the photo of Anna sleeping I added a Crate Paper Fourteen Stitched Label + a little bit of hand-journaling. Really loving just adding my pen to the photos right now. I most often use Precision Pens from American Crafts.

The February card was included in the Studio Calico Front Row Project Life Kit.

IDEA | Add a stitched border to a core kit journal card.

That little "here" sticker is from Studio Calico's Here & There Circle Sticker Sheet. Super cute:

The cork "s" is from Close To My Heart.
