This week I used a color scheme of Kraft, cream and gray which really coordinated well with my photos. I used lots of products from My Minds Eye Everyday Fun collection + items from a monthly Studio Calico kit.
A fun week full of school events, ballgames and lots of family time. I love that I'm capturing lots of photos of the girls' friends. Those are some of my most treasured photos from when I got my first camera in grade school. The kind of camera where you had to use your thumb to progress the film....wow, we've come a long way in technology.
I love this main, dated insert. It combines my handwriting + Kraft accents + canvas pieces along machine stitching.
Here I used a chipboard number to create a simple journaling card. I love to integrate my handwriting in with purchased accents.
Here's another week in review journaling card. A lot of you liked this idea and I'm happy to hear I could give you a good tip to use in your PL albums.
Here I cut an Instagram photo in half and used them in 2 journaling slots. Just a fun way to get more photos in for this week.
A few My Minds Eye accents + a label that I ran through my typewriter. For small labels, sticky notes, etc I just run the piece through my typewriter if it's large enough....or for smaller pieces I adhere them with temporary adhesive to a piece of copy paper and then run that whole sheet through my typewriter.
This week I have a few extra school photos of the girls that I didn't get around to adding into extra page protector inserts. I simply slip these into a page protector along with a few accents that I want to use. I'll come back to these pages at a later date. At least they are in the right spot with a few embellishments and a sticky note of what I plan to do.
That's it for another week from 2011. As I'm working on the first week of January's Project Life, I'm snapping a few photos as I go along. I'll be sure to post those when I post those pages so you can get an idea of how I go about doing a weekly layout. I'll have that layout up as soon as I get it completed.
Thank you so much for the wonderful response to my new Made by Mish shop. All orders are being sent out today. I have a big re-stock of sacks so for those who inquired I'll have more within a week or so. Also for those who asked, I plan to keep my Etsy shop open as I transition everything to the new store front. There are still some items that you can shop for there too.
On the list for today:
Trying to stay warm. It's 17 degrees with a wind chill of 1! I'm also wrapping up my Papertrey projects for this month's release so look for a post on the 15th. A run to the post office then I'm back in the Craft Department for a little tidying up....and then it's Project Life time. Hope your day is warm and cozy, friends.
