For Week Six in Project Life® 2016 I used cards created with the optional Storytelling Class Kit for my Project Life® workshop along with a few other supplies. The kit is sold out + will not be restocked but the stamp will be available later this year. We also have a digital set of the cards + stamps available here.
Here's a look at my Week Six:
In the Storytelling With Project Life® classroom this week I shared my complete process for this spread which included creating all the cards first (cutting many of them up to make homes for stories), stamping the days of the week, and then writing something on each one each day of the week. I love the concept of breaking up the different tasks and having all the "crafty" parts done and all I had to do was add the words and print my photos during the week.
I also included a 6x8 insert this week to celebrate Anna's birthday. I stamped "birthday" using my Birthday Stamp Set on top of a card from my Celebrate Journal Card Set. I also used that stamp set to stamp "birthday goodness" inside the 2-inch Avery Index tab.
That #7 tag is from an old Studio Calico set or kit which I don't think is available any more.
On the back of the insert I included a photo (cut into 2) of her gift list (for sending thank you notes) + the back of the Celebrate card + I cut up one of her personalized cards and wrote her a short note about how awesome she is and how thankful I am to have her in my life. I ordered those personalized cards from Minted (Sanibel Island stripes children's stationery) to encourage the fine art of letter writing and thank-you-noting.
The "everyday story" title card was included in the Spark Story Kit™.
One thing you might notice about this week is I didn't add any embellishments to my photos. I felt like I had enough going on in my middle row of 3x4 cards + the insert to call it good. Actually, I really love those photos without anything else on them.
My goal this week, after putting all the cards together, was simply to write down some basic facts on each day.
I seriously love how this week turned out and I will totally use this approach again another time.
And in case you are wondering, I write on those journal cards first and then underline them.
Hope you have great week!
