Project Life: Week 2

The Mom Creative
Two weeks down and I'm just getting more and more excited about doing Project Life.  I really think this is going to be my year!  Last week I just posted the pictures I took.  I had no idea, until I began blog hopping around to other PL participants, that so many people would be sharing completed pages.  I don't know if I'll be able to keep up with printing photos each weekend but this time I've got the first and second week to show.

My pages are pretty basic but I'm still very pleased with how they turned out.  I used the two types of days of the week stickers from the kit to label the days and on the first week I used a cool transparency over the photo for Thursday.

I used the date stamp for each journaling card again but changed the color from red to green.  I am loving that stamp!  This is the first time I incorporated memorabilia into one of the journaling pockets, the check off list from the Lego Minifigures Series 6 that my husband and daughter started collecting.  I also added the invitation that ER made at Daisies, so nice to have a place to stash that!  One of the journaling cards has some ribbon on it, to cover a mistake.  I really like how it looks.

The Week in Review:
  • Sunday: The progress so far on our basement finishing project.
  • Monday: The little baby hairs that have been sprouting up on LB's head as they grow back and some more favorites from our mini photo shoot on the couch.
  • Tuesday: ER at Daisies and her invitation.
  • Wednesday: Book club meeting for Minding Frankie, edited because my friends are a little shy about appearing on the blog.
  • Thursday: After school play date and LB with the Jedi Mickey his Godmother brought back from FL.
  • Friday: SNOW! 
  • Saturday: The Lego Series 6 mini figures that my husband bought, he's obsessed, and the one that ER really wanted.

Next week I will try to show some close ups of each side of the week spread, but since I'm playing catch up this week I didn't want to make the post too photo heavy.  So instead, I'll just highlight my favorite things from the past two weeks.  Clockwise from Top Left: Die cut weekly title, transparency over photo and journaling, mini layout, and embellished photo template from Paislee Press.  I noticed that I like the inserts that I get a little creative with, and I'm excited to incorporate that a little bit more.  I guess it really is all in the details!

These are great! I like how Project Life incorporates lots of journaling. That's one thing I don't do. I just have pictures and dates. I should probably start doing that.

Oh, you WILL love PL more and more, Katie!! I took on a huge task in 2011 and redid all of my albums from 1999-2011. I used PL for the last four of those years and am using it again this year. The only reason I didn't use it for all of the years is it was faster to use Picasa collage pages to catch up quicker. But, I am a PLifer for sure :-).

Your family is beautiful! I cannot believe how BIG your little boy is!

Just wanted to say hello. I read often, but comment rarely and wanted to wish you well in all you do, Katie! Still LOVE to see all that you are crafting!! You are awesome :-).
