Welcome to Katie's Project Life 2013 | Week 6.
This month is just humming right along.
Looking back at my previous spreads I can definitely see I lean towards pinks and yellows when choosing embellishments and journal cards. It's already been so fun to look back on the previous weeks. It's so easy to forget the little things we do every week, so I am super thankful for this project.
I added some gold embossing powder the the "This Week" Card from the Studio Calico February Project Life Kit. I used an embossing pen to color in the letters, so the powder would stick, and it worked well.
If you haven't heard of Moorea Seal's 52 Lists project, you should check it out. Ali introduced me to it and it's seriously awesome.
This week was Miss Anna's 4th birthday. I can't believe it. Time moves too fast!
I adhered a 3x4 journal card from Studio Calico's Project Life Kit to a 4x6 Journal card. I used my cursive typewriter to add some journaling to the card about Anna's birthday.
On the bottom right: Ali made these really cute new 4x6 cards with room for embellishments and journaling. They are called Outline 4x6 Journal Cards and will be available at Desinger Digitals this weekend. They also come in a 3x4 size. Love them.
IDEA | Cut out a 3x4 card from 12x12 paper. Lightly adhere the card to a piece of paper and run it through your printer. I printed Ali's "This day was rad" from her This Day Brushes and Stamps Collection.
I attached the 3x4 card to a 4x6 journal card with washi tape. Then, I added more washi tape to the opposite side of the card to create a tab to open up the flap.
I cut the tape to look more like a tab by cutting the corners off.
Then, I gave it quick run it through the sewing machine to make sure it would stay put.
I printed a 3x4 size photo and adhered it to the back of the pink card. I then added my journaling onto the 4x6 card. I have been loving creating little flaps to open with the journal cards for hidden journaling. Thank you washi tape for being so amazing.
