Project Life 2015 // weeks 3-4

Project Life 2015 // weeks 3-4

Left side: design F page protector & cards are Kiwi Edition. Right side: design A page protector, cards from Sunsine & Kiwi Edition, 3x4 white cards, 4x6 white card,  and alphas are a mix of Basic Grey & Thickers. All embellishments are from the Project Life Gold Foil Value Kit.

If you are wondering what that card with all the numbers is about, I decided to do some tallying while on girls weekend. By the end of our time together, there were: 12 bottles of wine, 2 bottles of vodka, 6 shots (each), 2 broken glasses, 5 friends, in 48 hours. I actually kept a post it on the counter. The other girls thought I was crazy. But I'm happy I thought to record the details. That's what Project Life is all about.

On the right side, the 2 4x6 photos were printed by Persnickety Prints. On the left side, the 4x4 photo was also printed by Persnickety Prints. The rest were printed on my Canon Pixma.

The stamp used here is from Kellie Stamps. A recent new find (thanks to Jen & Rachel who are huge fans). I kinda love them and I find myself wanting to stamp everything.

I wanted to add a longer story for my girls weekend (right side of layout) so I used a foldable 4x6 PL card from the Sunshine Edition. I used another one of Kellie's Stamps for the top, then I journaled on the front and inside. Last, I used my Tiny Attacher to staple a twill ribbon on the top to use as a pull tab. I slide the card right behind on of my photos in a 3x4 pocket (you can see above).

For week 4, I used only a free set of cards sent to me from Stampin Up. It was super challenging to only use these cards and nothing else. I must admit they really aren't my usual choice of colors, so I had a hard time. I ended up using a bunch of 3x4 and 4x6 white PL cards to add some much needed white space. I'm still adding in my kids artwork whenever I can. 

Almost every week I have something they've made in my layouts. It is my favorite thing about Project Life. Adding in those little bits that would otherwise end up either in a box forgotten or in the recycling bin. The 4x4 photo was printed by Persnickety Prints, all the small photos were printed at home.

I often sew on my cards. I like the look and added texture and I sometimes find that my alpha stickers don't stay in place unless I stitch them. For 

I used some cork numbers from Studio Calico to make a list of 10 things I'm doing right now. Great way to add a little extra journaling and current digs into your layout.

Why did it take me so long to get a typewriter?? I'm obsessed. I can't go a week without using it.

Thats it for today.
