Project life... week 5

Last one for the day...

Week 5:
Only one page spread because week 4 had very little pictures, so I had to use up the other side of the spread. Lots more pictures, but not a busy week so it worked out perfectly :) Love adding little journaling here and there and little tags right on the pictures..

Bought these new roller stamps from 2 peas in a bucket (love that store!) finally got to use it and I love the way it came out!

Be back soon with more weeks! :)

Project life... still catching up

Back again, sharing the next week of my project life, that I never posted... better late then never right?!

Week 4:
So far this is my favorite, colorwise :) Only a one page spread due to lack of pictures, but that's ok!

I am trying to stick with the little calendar for each week and keep the circle title throughout, so far I'm really liking them :)

Used lots of dimension on this page, with the little dots, and letters, and stickers, OH MY!

My little cutie!

TFL! :)

Project Life....Catch up?

Hey guys!
Did ya miss me?? :) I missed you! I have been taking a break for a little while but I've been having that itch to get back into my creative ways! LOL

I fell behind on Project life a few months, but all of my pictures for every week are in their respective folders, just waiting to be edited and printed... and a few weeks are still just waiting for embellies and papers in the pages but the pictures are all placed... So I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things once I get Photoshop back. (I had a trial and now it's expired and I'm putting off buying the full version)

I'm here to share with you the next couple of weeks in the book that I never posted. ENJOY!

Here is week 3:
(as always, click on any picture to enlarge it)
The whole double page spread, how it looks in the book.

Left side:
I printed my "week 3" title and stamped the weeks dates on it, slapped it on some paper, doodled a bit and called it done. LOVE when it's easy and simple! :)
My zebra and giraffe cups and bowls are from World Market, don't you love them!?

Right side:
The music note is an svg cut found online
I am loving journaling directly on the photos!

The top right is a flip flap that I made my folding a 6x8 in half at the 4" mark and stuck one half in the pocket and made a little tab and taped it down on the outside.

Here is what it looks like open

& the whole page with the opened flap

Some of my favorite embellies on this page (the journaling goes with the image to the left of it, not the napping sweetheart) :)

PL13 Week 2 + Tips on organization

Welcome to PL13 Week 2!

This week I used a lot of freebies from Pinterest. All of the rainbow hearts and stripe cards are from here.

I took the pictures of my pages while they were still in the book so sorry for the ring shadows and the crooked left side lol. Next week I will take them out to get a "flatter" straighter picture.

I used an instagram of a collage I made this week, love this look so I think I might use more instagrams, but maybe a little smaller. For my "week 2" cards, I cut it out using my cricut and scal2 and then used the negative cut out for a 3x4 card with rainbow stripes behind it. Then punched out some butterflies to fill the empty black space and used the positives on the title card. I LOVE all the rainbow I used this week!

The camera is a Dear Lizzy stamp by American Crafts, popped up on pop dots.

Annddd... my journaling for the highlights of the week :)

So I mentioned in my last post that I would share how I organized my layout and here is the weekly planner template that I downloaded for free:
And how I used it for this week to organize my thoughts and plan where I want my pictures to go. It really helps with deciding how to print my pictures in the correct sizes and to see if I need more pictures to fill spots, or to cut back on pictures. It definitely speeds up the slowest process for me. :) Hope it helps you too!


Up next...... GIVEAWAY!
better late then never!

PL13 Week 1

As promised, here is week 1 of my PL13! I am very proud of myself that I have been caught up so far! Just a little slow on the posting part, but I am trying to work on that this year :) So far I have been able to finish the weekly spreads before the next week is over and that to me is a HUGE accomplishment since I'm such a perfectionist, and it seems that the deciding what pictures should go where and how to resize them is what takes me the longest.... I found an awesome freebie planner that I will share with you for next week's spread, so keep an eye out! ;) It definitely helps in that department!

Remember: any of my pictures that you would like to enlarge, just click on the picture for the SUPER close up version!
This week was a lot of fun! We went to the Oakland CA Zoo, so I wanted to do a whole 12x12 page of my weekly spread just for that day. My favorite thing to do so far is journaling directly on the photos! I love the look, and freedom that it gives me that I would never do in full size scrapbooking! I also love that everyday pictures are getting scrapped!

My calendar is a freebie printout that I have pinned on my Pinterest, all I did was cut out the calendar part of the 3x4 card with a little border and I'm going to add one of these to every week, I love the look! "This week" and "smile" cards are also freebies I found on Pinterest!

For this project I also learned how to use Photosheet to manipulate my pictures to be ready for printing in sizes that I want, I love the ease and quickness of it! Much quicker than resizing and adding white space in photoshop! I used it to make my 3x4 picture and those little 2x3 pictures too!

Don't you LOVE that craft zebra print!? I do!

And here's my favorite girl! and my favorite animal!

Thanks for looking!!


Project Life 2013 Cover Page

Welcome 2013!
I have acquired a new obsession, I must admit...

I just finished my cover page for my very first Project Life album :) 

It took me forever and 2 weeks to figure out what I wanted to do, but I think I am veryyyyyy happy with how it came out :)

That is sooo true! And a great opening statement to this year :)

Hope you enjoyed my cover page! I will upload week 1 and 2 tomorrow, I must get some sleep!

& PL-ing ;)
