Project Life 2012 | Week Thirteen + A Project Life Giveaway

Welcome to Project Life 2012 | Week Thirteen.

Hello vacation week. Specifically hello Disneyland week.

To tackle our vacation within Project Life I decided to just pick seven photos for the week. There's a ton of different ways I could have approached this (including adding in a bunch of inserts to include more photos and words). I actually liked the challenge of choosing just seven photos. I went with one from each day - one that I love for one reason or another. I'm definitely going to do some other sort of album/photobook to document the complete trip - not sure on that format yet - I'll most likely tackle that after Week In The Life.

I'm also participating in a big Project Life giveaway today - more details are available at the bottom of my post. Please note that because these items ship directly from Amazon.com that this giveaway is open only to US residents.

Here's a look at Week Thirteen:

For the journaling I used my For The Love Of Days Journal Cards die cut with the Silhouette. I decided to just hit the basic highlights with my journaling here - I'll go more in-depth in the main album/photobook I create.

The "love" frame is from 4x6 Sentiment. The "This Is Awesome" is from This One.

Can't seem to get enough of those glitter letter stickers from American Crafts.

For The Love Of Days Journal Cards. Edges rounded with the Corner Chomper.

Here's a look at the For The Love of Days Journal Cards after they have been traced using the Silhouette software.

You can watch a simple video about tracing PNG files with Silhouette Studio here.

Since there are eight 3x4 slots I decided to include on additional photo.

The "Great Adventures" sticker is from the Miss Caroline line from My Minds Eye. Still loving those Happy Days Wood Banners.

I used the For The Love Of Life Journal Cards and cut it on the Silhouette using vellum. The "I heart today" is from my I Heart Stories set. Photo was stitched onto the vellum using my sewing machine.

I'm feeling totally satisfied with this treatment of our trip in this album. Really like how the journal cards came out and I like the simplicity of the week. I'm sure I would of liked it if I added in more photos too, but I like that this hits the highlights.
