Welcome to Katie’s Project Life 2013 | Week 18.
This week was busy. A very happy, though busy, week. I was preparing to leave for vacation with one of my best friends. We took a 4 night Royal Carribean cruise to the Bahamas. It was fantastic! I will post all of the trip photos in my next post.
When I went to print my photos for this week, I realized I had only taken 4 photos between Monday and Sunday. I was fine with that, because I knew there would be a lot taken in the coming weeks.
I love adding Ali’s Heart Messages to photos. I used the “love” a weeks weeks ago, and cut it out on cardstock with the Silhouette. It made a great little window for the photo I placed behind it. You can find that post here.
The “high five” card is from a Studio Calico Project Life kit a couple months back. I wanted to carry that same theme over into my next page where I included a large photo of the beach.
I took this photo on the first day I arrived in Florida. My friend lives in Marco Island, and we spent the day there before leaving for Port of Miami.
Since I didn’t take many photos this week, I thought this one would be the perfect photo to enlarge.
I ended up printing it on white cardstock because I really wanted to be able to cut out some words with the Silhouette. Photo paper is a little too gummy to be cut in the machine (we’ve tried it). It turned out awesome. I added some sequins from Studio Calico to carry some of the yellow from the left side over to the right side of the spread.
This is what the photo looked like when it printed out. I was so happy with the results. The cardstock really softened the look of the photo, almost making it look like a water color painting. I can’t wait to try this out on another photo soon.
Head on over to the blog today for a giveaway + the chance to win a Silhouette Portrait™!
