Project Life 2013 | Week Six

Welcome to Project Life | Week Six.

Lots of Anna celebrations this week and a concert in Portland.

Some of you might notice that I didn't include all the photos that I included in my blog post about Anna's birthday. I've got plans to create a layout for the rest of those images.

The large chipboard 4 stitched onto the top left photo is from October Afternoon. Usually I use 4x6 cards from the Seafoam kit in that location but decided to mix it up with a photo this week.

The childhood Project Life mini-kit editions are not just for stories about kids. I used a card from the Wellington set this week ("good memory").

And yes, I have a new friend.

IDEA | Use a pocket within the pockets. These stitched vellum pockets from Studio Calico are a great fit for the 3x4 pockets. The package includes both kraft and vellum stitched pockets.

Chipboard banner is from My Mind's Eye.

IDEA | Print directly onto Seafoam journal cards. This week I chose to print a quote directly onto a journal card that included word art from my Quote This set. In photoshop I set up a new file sized to 3x4 at 300dpi. I added the words and the quotation word art. Before printing I added I temporarily adhered the Seafoam journal card onto a 4x6 sheet of photo paper and ran it through my Epson PictureMate printer. I usually recommend doing a test print first and then adding the journal card and re-running it through the printer.

The 8.5x11 insert included this week is the Conversation With Anna I did right around her birthday.

On the back I included a collage of four photos of Anna from each of her birthdays.

The Hello My Heart 3x4 card was printed on photo paper.

The pink "today" on the photo of Anna at her party is from Elle's Studio's new Day To Day line and the layered circle sticker is from My Mind's Eye.

Word stickers on the top right photo are also from My Mind's Eye.

IDEA | To partially cover up an image I used a piece of vellum cut to 3x4. I also stapled a banner from the top of a layered My Mind's Eye sticker to the vellum cover.

What do I use for my corner rounder? The Corner Chomper from We R Memory Keepers set at the 1/4 inch corner.
