Project Life: Week 35

Hello again! As I mentioned in my previous post, I was able to knock out two weeks of Project Life in the last couple of days. I'm so happy to be so close to caught-up! And I'm super excited to share another layout with you! Here is my most recent spread....

Life Documented
August 25 - August 31

Week 35: Full Spread

We absolutely love Summer! And I'm having a blast documenting each and every day of it! This week was pretty chill, but fun nonetheless. I captured some wonderful photos, and a simple and laid back day at the neighborhood park was the highlight of our week! I mixed it up a bit with different types of journal and filler cards, and played around with some extra embellishments.

Week 35: Right Page

Here I'm using a Hobby Lobby pocket page continued from Week 34. I stuffed it with all sorts of cards! I really enjoy playing with different designers, collections, and supplies. Especially when creating handmade cards! I also love pairing cool printables with designer journal cards! The title card is Kraft paper from Amy T's Ready Set Go line. I added a Cameo cut, printable arrow tag, some paper deco tape, and a Daiso brad. 

Week 35: Left Page - Close Up

The 4"x 6" journal card is also from Amy Tangerine's Ready Set Go line. I used it document a special moment, and added a washi tape flag pointing to the accompanying photo card. That small card was made from my scraps. It holds a wallet-size instagram pic and a potty girl cut on my Cameo. I added a little heart to her chest. That's me! Love my man <3

I needed to fill some space so I raided my stash for a calendar card. This one with the little squirrel is so stinkin' cute! I used an Ali Edwards calendar stamp to mark off the week.

This 4"x 6" card is the reverse side of the Ki Memories paper from last week. I added a 4"x 4" instagram photo, a cutout journal tag from Crate Paper, and a print-and-cut label. I used a Dear Lizzy roller stamp to finish it off.

The 4"x 3" cards are from We R Memory Keepers and Recollections. I added a wallet-size instapic, print-and-cut label, and a Dymo label to the WRMK card. I wrote my daughter's name directly onto the photo using an American Crafts Slick Writer pen.

Week 35: Left Page | A Top Ten Card

I used a fun journal card to fill this spot in the layout. I liked the idea of a Top Ten list to document my "Everyday Delights" from the Summer. I added a star badge [cut with my Cameo] for a little extra embellishment.

Week 35: Right Page

I decided to use the same Hobby Lobby pocket page for this side. I like the way they look together, plus I had a ton of photos to use! This whole page documents our day at the neighborhood playground :) Only one journal card was needed, so I filled the remaining pockets with different types of photographs and cards.

Week 35: Right Page | Close Up

I used a pretty herringbone design by Crate Paper to create a 4"x 6" card. I added some washi tape banners, a print-and-cut camera, and a Dymo label. The smaller pockets have a printable freebie and MAMBI card with another wallet-size instapic. I had some fun with one of my fave PL apps on my Galaxy S3!

I took a wonderful photo of my daughter swinging using the InstaPlace app on Android. [I have the Pro version.] With the help of my phone's GPS, the application is able to apply awesome skins to my photos. So many designs. Perfect for documenting details!

Week 35: Right Page | Close Up

I used this woodgrain paper from Crate Paper, as the base of my "Tire Swing" card. I stacked two wallet-size square photos, captured from different perspectives. Some B&W twine, butterfly cuts, and Doodlebug alphabet stickers complete the card.

Week 35: Right Page | Close Up

I saved one of the large pockets for the photo-of-the-day: a full-size 4"x 6" picture of Kiani and Daddy on the monkey bars. It's my favorite! The last pocket has a printable journal card talking about our day at the local playground. I added a snapshot of the sign and entrance.

The last of the small cards are sweet and simple. A black and white MAMBI card with yellow striped Target brand washi holds the instagram photo of My Loves.  I used a free printable with a funky triangle design as the background for another awesome instagram photo. Yes, it's a smartphone app! This time I used InstaWeather on Android [I have the Pro version] to document the gorgeous day. Again, with your phone's GPS the app is able to add location-based skins and weather information to your photos. I love using it for my Project Life!

Whew... I can't believe I knocked out two layouts in two days! Now I'm only 1 week behind! I think I'll be doing this again for the next two weeks of Project Life... then I'll be all caught up!! Awesome.
