Project Life® 2016 | Week Eighteen

I'm jumping around with 2016 Project Life® weeks right now - starting the process of getting up to date by printing photos first and then adding journaling cards with stories and few embellishments here and there. 

The products I used in this spread are my Highlighted Products Of The Month and are available for domestic free shipping/$2 international when purchased before 7/5/16 at 11:59PM EST (see below for the product list). Check out my recent newsletter for all the details.

This month's featured shop products include: 

  • Remnant Rubs // a super fun set of black rub ons that are great on photos
  • This and That Journal Cards (also available digitally here) // a personal favorite, very-versatile 4x6 and 3x4 card set
  • Simple Stories Photo Flips (3x4 and 4x4) // perfect for adding more photos or journaling to your spreads

Here's a look at my Week Eighteen: 

Sometimes it's really super fun to just be told what products to use (in this case we decided which products are going to be featured and I focus on using those in my spread). I like the creative challenge of making specific intentional products work for any given week. In this case making the products work for this spread was easy because the products are generic in the best possible ways. Journal cards + photo flips (always a favorite to be able to add more photos or journaling) + black rub ons. 

I used two 3x4 photo flips across the spread - one for the first half of the week and one for the second half of the week. Inside the first one I included a photo on the front and a journal card on the underside. Along the edge I added an Index Tab

I used phrases from the sheet of Remnant Rubs onto the inside paper of the Index Tabs. 

The cards in the This And That set are super versatile, including phrases such as "the story of today," "currently," "life," and "around here."

One of my favorite ways to use the Remnant Rubs is right onto a photo. It's an easy way to get text onto your photos if you're not into adding them in Photoshop or another editing program before printing. 

My second Photo Flip pocket includes a couple movie tickets. 

I repeated the idea of adding an Index Tab along the outside edge to designate that something was able to be flipped up.

I love that these pockets can hold any number of things including photos, journal cards, and other ephemera.

    I'm sure you've gone over there somewhere but I'm curious how you attach the SN@P! 3x4 photo flips onto the 12x12 layout. Is it sewn or glue? I really like this idea, thank you for sharing!

      It comes with adhesive along the top - that's part of what makes them so great :).

    Great spread - I have the This & That set in hard copy and digitally - seriously can't get enough of them! Versatility for the win! Have a great week & 4th of July weekend.

    I love those journal cards, too. I used them in my WITL, and in my new PL spreads. I'm so glad you have those remnant rubs, they are a favorite, too, and I'm close to finishing the package. Anyway, really fun, cool spread. Thanks. Michelle t

    Has anyone used the style of page protector with the 2x12 pocket? I am using a few of these and putting a strip of patterned paper in this spot. It looks good but the paper doesn't stay in place. Any ideas?
