There's a lot to Project Life to catch up on this week! I've got three weeks to share at once. The second two are not recored in a typical two page spread and I'm excited to show you the slight adaptation I made to make Project Life work for me.
The leftover box is how I included that I went to a Mom's Night Out with friends, my acutal friends were feeling camera shy. At the bottom is a quote card and the black you see at the top is the back of the tab I used on the previous side. Written on the reverse of the quote is a list of the guests at my Great Aunt's funeral luncheon. I liked the quote card and didn't want any extra bulk so I decided to use both sides this way.
Simple Stories Snap cards.
The Be Your Self card is from Pebble's Love You More line and I sure do love it. They were just beginning to put it out when I picked up the journaling and quote cards pad and I hope they get more of it. On the bottom is a cute Tiny Prints personalized gingerbread card from the set we used this year. ER wrote her last one and there was one leftover so I snagged it for PL.
Now for how I combined two weeks into the space of one normal week spread. It's nothing earth shattering but it was a departure for me and a lightbulb moment that I can make PL work for me anyway I want to. It was kinda freeing.
My solution was to incorporate half a page protector, sandwiched in between the weeks. One one half is the rest of the first week and on the reverse is part of the next. I made sure I put the dates a couple places to make things clear, like on the tab attached to the insert. I think it really works.
The other major story is of Brad getting the first piece of dry wall up on a day he took off to work in the basement. Then his mother and Ray came over on the weekend to help move the projecess along more.
Pinterest or through my weekly linky A Crafty Soiree and then when we want to make it can't figure out exactly which one it was.
The Super Bowl card is a free printable from Made from Pinterest. I used elements from the kit Get Well Soon from Louise Franks Designs to make the sick themed card. I got that one when I was on her Design Team. Louise isn't actively designing kits anymore and has gone back to her first love - blog design. She's really good at it, if you haven't been to her site lately, here's the current one. I really miss the DT, it was fun and streched my creativity and skills a lot.
Last thing I wanted to do in this long PL post is to give a shout out to Melissa at A Vegas Girl at Heart, which is where I got the Favorite Photo card. It was part of her enormous Retro Themed Freebie Kit, that she so generously shared along with all her other fabulous freebies. The space on the poloroid was perfect for the date.
Update 4/9/13: I was out of town last week, so even though this posted as scheduled I'm just getting a chance to link it up to the The Mom Creative now.
