Project Life® 2013 | Week Thirty-Five (Studio Calico Project Life® Kit)


Welcome to Project Life® 2013 | Week Thirty-Five (August 26 – September 1).

Each month during 2013 one of my Project Life® weeks will be using the Studio Calico Project Life® kit.

You can check out all the new kits for August (called Antiquary) over at Studio Calico here: Scrapbook Kit | Project Life® Kit | Card Kit.

Here’s a look at Week Thirty-Five:


This was the week of the Labor Day holiday weekend. Lots of work and then lots of play at the Dave Matthews concert at the Gorge.


I didn’t have much to say this week mainly because I didn’t write it down while I was living it. Some of what I wrote in this spread is really more of a reflection of how I’m feeling right at this moment and I’m okay with that.

It’s all part of the story of this year.


Loved these little shape tags that came in the kit this month. I framed each one with a hand-drawn border.


My insert for this week is one of the 10×8 page protectors that I trimmed and then stitched to fit my tickets from the concert.


Still loving writing directly on my photos with a Slick Writer and those chipboard geo-tags were super fun.

      Hello Kelly and Caryn!

      Gee, thank you Kelly for that generous offer. Much appreciated:-) but i see Caryn says these kits are available in South Africa.

      Hi Jo-Anne,

      I bought my SC kit direct from SC. Shipping isn’t too bad if you only buy the SC kit and mine took about 3 weeks to arrive.

      I won’t do it every month, though I’d love to, but a little spoil every now and again is ok;)

    Love this layout! What is that cool calendar overlay over your Dave Mathews concert photo? Is this something you designed?

      That is the stamp that came in the kit and Ali drew the lines.

      Ali said…

      Yes – the stamp is included in the kit and I drew the other white lines.

    Your pages always show so much life!

    Will you be sharing your completed WITL album with us? Would love to see how you used divided page protectors this year in light of having less photos. Always love seeing your finished album!

      Absolutely! I’ve been traveling and had some other things get in the way but I will definitely be sharing it when it’s done.

    I’m having issues with my Slick Writers drying out and I can never seem to get the bold lines you have here. Any tricks to storing them?

      Patti, I have a really old Slick Writer and have found it works better on certain surfaces.
