Project Life: Week 28

Hello there! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I feel like I accomplished quite a bit the last few days... well the planning part of it anyway ;) I say that because I have a fun post coming up this week. You'll be taking a sneak peek at how this Island Girl plans and organizes her life! I can't wait to share my newest organization tool... I am loving it! I also had the chance to knock out another week in my Project Life album. And today, I'm sharing it here with you....

Week 28: Full Spread

It was a fabulous week here in the Pacific NW. It may not have started out great when it came to dealing with my 4-year-old, but hey... that's "real life." I captured other everday day life moments, and we also took another road trip down to Portland to spend some quality time with our ohana. I wanted the theme for this week to scream SUMMER, so I used lots of bright and cheerful colors in my cards, photos, and embellishments. I also mixed it up with lots of different printables and handmade cards.

Week 28: Left Page

This page is the reverse side of a Becky Higgins Design A from Week 27. For the title card, I used a piece of pretty scrapbook paper to act as the background for some colorful Cameo cuts. The "28" is a cutout from a paper collection, and the dots are paper washi bits from my hole puncher. I used a printable journal card to document life as a mommy. It provided more than enough room to share my thoughts from the day. In the bottom 6"x 4" slots I used 4"x 4" instagram photos and some 2"x 4" journal cards. One by We R Memory Keepers, and another was a printable that printed wrong, so I saved it.

Week 28: A Row of  Free Printables

For the row of 3x4's, I dug into my stash of free printables. I used some fun designs like a "currently watching" and calendar card, and a "captured" card and polaroid frame. I added wallet-sized instagram pics to those.

Since there were so many photos on this page, I decided to let them speak for themselves, so I kept it light on the embellishments. I only added a few styles of tiny alphabet stickers, a Dymo label, and some stamping with my roller date and rotary phrase stamps.

Week 28: Right Page

This right side is a generic photo page that I picked up from Hobby Lobby. The 4"x 6" slots hold a journal card by WRMK and three handmade cards cut from 6"x 6" paper pads. I used them to showcase some fun instagram photos in different sizes. I added some free printable labels, Cosmo Cricket label stickers, some pink bling, and a few fun alphabet stickers.

Week 28: Right Page - Close Up

For the column of 4"x 3" cards I used a couple more printables, a Mambi card, and a Recollections card. I added a neon strip of paper washi cut into an arrow, another Dymo label, and more tiny alphabet stickers to finish off this page. I adore how this spread turned out. It's so cheery and colorful and full of wonderful memories! I had tons of fun putting it together.
