Project Life 2016 {Week 9}

{Week 9}

This week included a PromPosal, haircuts, a cute sweater dress, and the hard decison to rehome our cat. 
Here's a closer look at Week 9
 
Lots of stamping this week. Lots of stamping.
I used StazOn Ink in both black and white to stamp directly on the photos.  

I got creative with the Kelly Purkey Greenpoint and Williamsburg Alphabet Stamps for my Weekly Title Card.

Project Life 2016 {Week 8}

{Week 8}

Here's a closer look at Week 8

Our February break happened during week 8.
SNOW!!!!
We finally got snow.  We have been waiting for a really heavy snow fall and boy did we get it.
We spent lots of time indoors, played lots of Skip-Bo and went a bit stir crazy at one point but overall enjoyed the time off.
The highlight of the week was the snow storm and the visit from my dad and step-mom.  
I used my typewriter this week...I have to remember to use it more often. 
Lots of pictures in this week's spread.  The top left photo is of the box of chocolate's I received for Valentine's day. I slapped a DIY label, a flair button and a heart shaped paperclip onto to the photo and called it a day!
Keep it simple...those three words are helping me stay up to date.

Thanks for stopping by.

{Week 7}


Here's a closer look at Week 7

I didn't take many photos this week.  And it didn't stress me out. YAY ME!
I simply spelled out the word 'WEEK' added the number 7 and the dates with a roller date stamp and called it a day.  
I stamped directly on the top right photo and added a clear overlay to the bottom photo.
Supplies:
  • Plastic clear overlay// Becky Higgins
  • I love this moment // 100% Me stamp set// Clearly Kelly 
  • Greenpoint Alphabet Stamp//Kelly Purkey stamp set
  • Project Life Design H Page Protectors//Becky Higgins 
  • Journaling cards//Studio Calico
I'm really liking the 6x12 album size.
I am no longer feeling pressured to 'fill the pockets'.
Thanks for stopping by.

Project Life Week 6

{Week 6}

Here's a closer look at Week 6

This week I used a 'baseball card' page protector and cut off the third row to make it fit into my album.  I trimmed the photos and adhered them to a Studio Calico journaling card. I'm so glad I stocked up on those because they are no longer available.
As per the usual I used a couple of Kelly Purkey Alphabet Stamps.
The 'It's a colorful life' card is layered over another card.
The musical notes stamps under the word 'Kareoke' is from an older Studio Calico Project Life kit.
I'm working my way through my stash and loving it.
Thanks for stopping by.

Project Life 2016 {Week 4}

{Week 4}

With a family as large as mine we are constantly on the go and when we don't have anything going on during the week we are so thankful. A very simple and uneventful week 4 in 2016. I like simple.
Here's a closer look at Week 4

All the cards are from the Heidi Swapp Favorite Things Core kit. As in other weeks I have used several stamp sets by Kelly Purkey.

I chose the Favorite Things core kit because the colors are bright and playful.  I felt like they complimented the photos of my kids playing together.
  • Project Life Design H Page Protectors
  • Project Life Core Kit// Favorite Things
  • Heidi Swapp Black Epoxy Buzz Word Stickers
  • Clearly Kelly Stamp Set //100% Me 
  • Greenpoint Alphabet Stamp Set by Kelly Purkey

Project Life 2016 {Week 3}

{Week3}

Week 3 tells the story of family.  We celebrated my son's 17th birthday and visited my brother and his family. On the drive home we hit a winter storm that delayed our trip and make us grateful to arrive safely. 
Here's a closer look at week 3.


I used a couple of cards from the Midnight Edition and stamps from Kelly Purkey.  I used bits and pieces from the October 2013 Gossamer Blue Life Pages Kit which has made several appearances in my album for the past couple of weeks. I'm down to the very last bit and pieces from this kit.  I really extended it's life especially considering that I used some of it back in 2013.  

I created the TRAVELOGUE card myself with the Clearly Kelly New Adventures set.  I have always loved Kelly Purkey's stamp sets and her latest realeases have not disappointed.  

I added a flip pocket to hold a couple of 3x4 pictures and a tab from the Gossamer Blue kit.  I used the WRMK Fuse tool to adhere the flip pocket. I swear that tool has been the best invention for PL. 
This week's spread was quick and simple. 

I like the repetition of the red stickers and the black epoxy word stickers.  I was reminded why I liked receiving a new kit every month.  I spent less time looking for prouducts in my stash because I was committed to 'killing the kit' 

Supplies
  • Project Life Design H Page Protectors
  • Project Life Core Kit Midnight
  • Heidi Swapp Black Epoxy Buzz Word Stickers
  • Clearly Kelly New Adventures Stamp set
  • WRMK Fuse Tool
  • Greenpoint Alphabet Stamp Set by Kelly Purkey
