Katie’s Project Life® 2013 | Weeks 30 through 38

Welcome to Katie’s Project Life® 2013 | Weeks 25 through 29 .

In an attempt to get caught up with sharing my weeks, I am going to be posting only the full page spread. I recently just photographed about 3 months worth of my weekly layouts, and this part 2 of sharing them here. You can click on the photo to see more detail.

Weeks 30 & 31 | These weeks were during the time we were in Paris. I’m probably going to do something similar to Ali, and add two large photos to represent our two weeks there. I am hoping to print an Artifact Uprising book with all of our photos.

Weeks 32 & 33 | I split two weeks up in one spread, using each 12×12 side as their own week. This has been working so great for me while I play catch up. Especially when I find that I took only a few pictures that week. Like I did in week 32.  The “Love This Life” is a vellum die cut circle that was included in the Blue Note Studio Calico Project Life® Kit. Week 33 was the week of my Bridal Shower and Bachelorette party. My sweet cousin put on my bridal shower at Mcmenamins Kennedy School, which is an old school turned into a small hotel and resort. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a fun hotel experience in Portland.  It’s pretty awesome.

Week 34 | This week was a big week for me. I had been exercising and eating right for quite some time and I finally fit into my skinny jeans again. Celebrate! It was an amazing day. I so need to get back on that train.

Weeks 35 & 36 | Here is another spread where I split it up into two weeks. My mom and I headed to the Coburg Antique Fair this week and had so much fun looking at all the treasures. For the two date cards I used stamps from Kelly Purkey’s Documented Stamp Set + Hero Arts Ink in Soft Blossom.   Our wedding favors arrived this week. We ordered custom white pencils from Oriental Trading for our favors and they turned out awesome. We also went to our wedding venue and did our last walk through before the wedding.

Week 37 & 38 | This week + a half was all about wedding prep. Baking Pies, putting favors together, crafty goodness. It was so full of crazy, and fun, and nerves. We ordered all of our flowers from Fifty Flowers and they were awesome! We had a big flower making party a few days before the wedding and had so much fun putting them all together. My parent’s garage turned into a flower shop for the week. We chose pink and white Garden Roses, White Hydrangea, Ranunculus, freesia and Queen Anne’s lace. I was in heaven.

    Love the stamped title cards and that action quote. Yay for catching up. I have been playing catch up too and it’s a good reminder that you don’t have to include everything. Simple wins.

    I like the choices you made for the journaling cards and the stamps. I checked out the blue note kit and really like that set. Thanks for showing your pages and your supply choices. Michelle t

    Hey Katie,

    I’m glad you embraced the two weeks, two pages layout. If you have to, you have to. There have been times when life has just been too darn busy to take photos and so I have a few weeks like that in my PL album, too. Looking back on them, it doesn’t bother me one little bit. :)

    Great work! I can’t believe you took on Project Life during the year of your wedding! But at the same time, what a great year to document!
