Project Life® 2015 | Week Six

Have I mentioned how freeing it is that I'm not thinking one little bit about whether the corners are round or square? 

It's awesome. 

A quick reminder that the AM/PM Story Kit™ and Story Stamp™ are available for just a few more days if you were hoping to begin a subscription with that theme. The next theme coming up on March 15th is Magic

Sharing a look at my 2015 Week Six: 


This was Anna's birthday week so I included a 6x12 insert to hold additional journal cards (printed text) and photos. It was also the weekend that Aaron and I camped in my car at Washburne State Park. I'm adding just 1-2 photos of that here as I'm creating a layout with many more of them and my journaling from this post using the next Story Kit™. 

Let's take a close-up look at the birthday insert first: 

For Anna's birthday story I took journaling directly from this post. I can't tell you enough how much I like writing up those stories, posting them here, and then being able to add those stories to layouts or to Project Life®. Separating the tasks of writing and crafting results in longer stories being told. 

Here's a look at the front and the back of the 6x12 insert: 

That black and white dot card at the top was included with the Cirque Project Life Kit. There was a circle printed on the design (that I think said February) as well but I decided to use a circle punch to cut the photo of Anna blowing out the candles and adhere that on top. 

For the journaling I spilt up the words onto 2, 4x6 cards and printed on photo paper. Right at the top of the first card I stamped a phrase from my Birthday Stamp Set

On the back side of the insert I included three more photos - one with a bit of writing directly on the photo. 

The white letter stickers you see throughout this post are from the Cirque Project Life Kit. I also have a similar sets available in my shop here

Here's a look at the spread again with the insert turned: 

I really like taking one product from a kit - in this case the letter stickers - and spreading them across the week. 

The left side of the spread: 

A simple go-to that I continue to employ is cutting up journaling cards and placing a portion of them on the photo as a home for journaling. 

Continuing the use of cropped art cards made by Anna for the date. 

Love that the letter stickers include quotation marks. 

The right side of the spread: 

Lots of chipboard hearts and a couple stars. Never enough. 

I loved those chipboard white and pink words from the Far Far Away Project Life Kit. I also love the simple idea of mixing a phrase like that with letter stickers for the final word. 

Yep. Always. 

The other card seen here is from the Studio Calico gold letterpress calendar. I cut it at the end of the month (Feb) and then added a lined journal card below (stitched to keep in place).

    Love the card that says, "Get out of your head, Ali". I need to do that from time to time (more often than not). I need to make a visual reminder of this. As Pink says, "I think, I think to much". Yep.

    Ali thanks for giving some ideas how to use your alphabet stickers I got a bunch but not sure how to use them in PL. Do you put them direct on the photo or the on the page protector?

      I usually put them right on the photo - sometimes I have put them on the page protector.

    Just beautiful! I too am wondering if you put the stickers right on your photos or on the page protectors? Also, they are lined up so perfectly! Do you eyeball it or use a ruler?

    I love the way you mix up & repurpose the products. Chipboard and stickers and cutting and changing the journal cards... and putting the mix right on your photos. Love it! Thanks for the inspiration. This gave me great ideas for making my stash of old PL journal cards feel all new again.

    I gave up on rounded or square corners a long time ago, I agree : it's great! We've slept a couple of times in our car during our life together as a family, everybody thinks we're crazy, but they are very good memories indeed, like small adventures within another adventure. And I love this "get out of your head, Ali" card! I'm always happy when you share your PL layouts!
