November 11-17th, 2012
This was the week I got my Clementine Core Kit, the first paper official Project Life kit I've gotten. I was so excited to get the actual physical kit. For a die hard paper junkie like me the digital version (which I had used previously) just never is going to cut it. I was so happy to get my box of goodies I went back and changed out a couple journaling cards from the past couple weeks for ones from the kit. I used my favorite colorful "Live Out Loud" filler card and based the rest of the page around it.
This week is filled with some pretty normal details of life: trying a new art kit on the weekend, Daddy vacumming while LB runs to "hide" behind the couch - peeking out from time to time, blog reviews, finally finding some leg warmers for ER, and more bruises on LB - something that's become all to regular and that we wish wasn't.
The second half of the week is in a page protector from We Are Memory Keepers (WRMK), from their system called Albums Made Easy, the collection you can find at Target in their scrapbook aisle. It's really cute, double sided, and expensive. See some of it in this YouTube video, I have most of the same stuff. You'll see more of it later on in this post.
All right, back to the second half of the spread. It's mainly about the Holiday Tag Making Party I hosted for some neighbors. I created a collage of the party set up details and then used a "My Story" 6X6 journal card from the WRMK pads shown in the video I linked above. The 6X6 pads are also great for Design E. Along the bottom are some pictures of the finished tags my friends made, a journaling card, and then a 3X4 mini photo collage of the Art Night held at my daughter's school attached to a journaling card with some washi tape.
The two 4X6 journaling cards I used this week are from Celeste Knight: Bright Basics - Journalers 2, I added a few Days of the Week elements from the digital Clementine kit but otherwise left them alone except for my date and text. The quote filler card was a freebie I got from Erin Kay Studios, when she was still designing under the name Secret Stash.

I used more of the 6X6 journaling pad from WRMK I got at Target to record what we are thankful for on. ER wrote directly on them, the lines are perfectly sized for her. It's such a nice way to incorporate her into Project Life. You can see half of a 4X6 journaling card underneath the picture of E with Grandma on Thanksgiving. The little Thankful flag on the group picture is actually trimmed from the bottom of Bella Blvd 12X12 sheet of paper. Far too cute to just toss. After Thanksgiving, ER went to spend a couple of nights at Grandma Norma's, where they did a lot of fun stuff like making chocolate suckers and decorating the tree.
The dinner was for my Dad's birthday and the rest of the page has pictures from cake and opening presents. This page protector is another one from the multi-pack by WRMK from Target. I used some of the 2X4 journaling cards down the side. I added some more details on the flag card at the top after photographing. The birthday stickers are very old Die Cuts with a View.
November 25 - December 1
The 2X4 journaling cards I used for my Dad's birthday are double sided and I picked them out, knowing I wanted them to work with the next week as well. I used them to journal about that week's Daisy Scout Meeting, watching the first holiday TV special of the season, and LB playing the drum set we got for review from Goblin Kids. At the top left corner is E holding another lost tooth, that actually happened at the end of the week but it fit best in that slot. I added a couple details about the tooth coming out in the space above.
