Welcome to Project Life | Week Seven.
Each month during 2013 one of my Project Life weeks will be using the Studio Calico Project Life kit.
This week I did lots of cutting and pasting with the journal cards that were included in the kit – adding them to photos and combining them together to create some additional designs.
A peek at the mess in progress on my table.
The date card (upper left corner) was created by combining the folded journal card + a 4×6 journal card (cut) + a 3/4 journal card (cut) + the days of the week stamp + the folded circle accent (cut) + a date stamp from my stash. Those were all stitched together using yellow thread on my sewing machine.
I included two 6×12 divided page protectors as my insert for this week to include more images from my Palm Springs adventure.
I cut the diagonal 4×6 die-cut and the “&” 4×6 journal card and stitched them together to create a partially see-through element. I added letter stickers + the arrow stamp on the front. On the back I added two flags that were cut from journal cards to create an additional element (loved how Allison Walken did something similar last month when she added two horizontal elements on a photo).
The “lucky” banner was cut from a journal card.
“Be Awesome Always” was cut from the March Neverland printable.
I printed out the March Neverland printable and used scissors and a 1 inch circle punch from EK Success to add those elements to my photos with foam dots and rolling adhesive. Especially loved cutting out that “be awesome always” element and adding it to the back of one of the 4×6 cards.
