Project Life Week 11, 2012

Hi there, if you're visiting from Becky Higgins' blog, welcome! Today Becky is sharing links to all the Project Life Creative Team Members blogs so be sure to check out her blog for links. It's always so inspiring to see what everyone else is up to with Project Life.

Today I'm sharing Week 11 of my Project Life. I'm about 2 weeks behind but that is very manageable compared to the 17 weeks I got behind in 2011. I've been trying to make any inserts that go with a week that I'm working on so that is taking a little bit longer. But well worth it. Here's my 2 page spread
Note: It seems I forgot to take photos of the individual pages. I'll get to that later and add them back into this post soon.

Here are some of my favorite inserts from this week. I was working with my snow confetti this week on crafty projects so I thought it would be fun to include it right in my insert. I also used some Washi tape from the Smash Book collection + a journaling spot, fabric brad and a Large White Tag. I've really enjoyed including a photo of a weekly craft project in my albums.
Here's a line up of some 3 x 4 journaling cards, starting with my week in review on the left, a shot of the weather in the middle and an artsy quote sticker from Cosmo Cricket. The plaid journaling card is from the Clementine Core Kit.
Here I used a trimmed down Library Card for a journaling card with typed label and photo. The middle insert is another Clementine card with letter stickers and hand journaling. On the 4 x 6 photo insert at the top, I typed on some of my Grid Labels + added a circle embellishment from Banana Fish Studio.
Here's another 4 x 6 insert with photos of Charlie digging in the garden. I added a hand cut patterned paper flat + wood grain chipboard letters + a stamped Small White Tag. The letter stamps are from Hero Arts.
I also added an insert this week using a Design G Photo Pocket Page. I love this 10 x 12 size because I like to keep my inserts smaller than the 12 x 12 pages. I think the main week remains more visible and the smaller inserts lets the viewer know that the inserts act as add-ons to the week.

The front page of my insert shows my dad, a hard working farmer. Always active. A recent world traveler and always on the go. Healthier than ever at age 78.
The back side of the insert shows my dad the day that he had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor. This page was very, very hard to make. I almost trashed it because I really don't want to be reminded of this horrible time. The horrible news. But I decided that it's a part of life. A part of my life that I want to document. A year ago, my mother-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer and I didn't scrapbook one bit of it. I wanted to forget that it happened. I decided that making this insert about my dad's cancer is part of our journey. A story that needed to be told. And before I cry anymore I will just stop typing. On a good note, my dad's surgery was a success. The doctor's think the cancer was contained and caught early. We hope and pray that this is the end of this little journey.
And now for some fun stuff. Many of the Creative Team Members are giving away some Project Life products this week. I'll be giving away lots of items from the Cobalt Project Life collection + a variety pack of the Photo Pocket Pages.
To enter your name for the prizing drawing, please leave a comment telling me something special you've added to your Project Life pages. It can be a special story, an insert page, a fun piece of memorabilia.....anything you like. Or perhaps you have a story you'd like to add to your album. Anything you want.

Here's the details on how to enter the contest:
1. Contest is open to US residents only, sorry to everyone outside the US
2. You must leave your first name and state in the comments section + a blurb (see above)

Great layouts this week in your project life. Thanks for sharing your Dad's story, seems so many are facing cancer these days.
I love that cobalt edition so thanks for the opportunity to try and win one of my own.

Mrs. Booms said...

I love the inspiration I get from your Project Life layouts! I have added screen shots from my iPhone into my album and love going back and looking at Facebook posts, the weather, text messages, and other bits of my daily life. Thanks for the great giveaway, this project is awesome!

Jennifer said...

I just wish I could win this album and get started on a project life album! I keep saying I want to do it, but have yet to give it a try. So this would be the motivation needed to try it!!! I love your pages each week! The inspiration you give is amazing!!!

Thanks for the chance to win this amazing scrapbook kit!!!

WI - I'm enjoying following your Project Life articles Michelle. I've been saving "daily tidbits" to add to my kit, many being screen shots from my phone.

Ellie Augustin said...

For me this year I have been including journaling from each of my family members to show their point of view for each week. I really have loved seeing my children get excited to be able to know this album really is for them.

ShellyJ said...

beautiful insert of your Dad. I will keep him and your family in my prayers.

I have enjoyed putting my phone pictures in my album. I don't have internet service on my phone, so I atually have to download my pictures on a card then onto the computer. It really doesn't take much time at all... but I never do it. At the end of last year, I downloaded them all and put them in my album! :) pictures that are usually lost forever were printed off.

thanks for all of your inspiration! Shelly J in Medina, OH

Sheryl Berglund said...

My Project Life album is very simple.....that's the only way I'll keep up! I am trying to add a little stamping to my journaling cards this year. I've also started incorporating some iphone/instagram photos. Thanks for the chance to win!

Mindy said...

I'd like to start Project Life, been a little intimidated by it and the thought of loosing what little time I have for my other layouts, but think I should give it a try. Thanks for the stories and inspiration.

Sara said...

I mostly use photos, stickers, and cardstock...but I have included a few ticket stubs, greeting cards, and kids' artwork!

Thanks for the giveaway! I'd love to add the Cobalt kit to my PL collection. I have documented several special things already, but I'm really looking forward to documenting when my kids "graduate" from kindergarten and 5th grade next month.

I love your insert page of your Dad! It's so special. My Dad, too, is a farmer & loves his GREEN tractors! I'm glad you didn't "ditch" the back of the page! It tells a great story; you have some wonderful pictures. (((hugs))) to you.

What do I add special to my pages...PHOTOS TAKEN BY MY DEAR HUSBAND! :-D I think the whole family is having fun with this Project Life "thing". LOL.

Good morning!

My sister and I made a pact for 2012 - that we'd do better sending "real mail" to each other. And we have! And while I am doing a very scaled back PL this year, and and doing mostly journaling, I am keeping all of the cards she sends me.

Thanks for the chance to win some Cobalt goodies!

I first want to say I love your PL! So wish I could be creative enough to make mine more scrappy! I added an insert in mine this week of all my flowers coming up. I plan on adding many extras to mine as time goes on. Thanks for the great giveaway!

julie e said...

Project Life is such a great concept. I wish I'd started. We are at a transition in our lives as my oldest child has moved out. I would love to be documenting his life as he truly begins the transition from childhood to adult independence. Right now its way too easy to focus on the challenges instead of the successes.

Susan said...

I've found that Project Life is perfect for recording little conversations that I'd otherwise forget. Just fun little things that my kids say, things that made us laugh, things that are meaningful but I know I would never get around to putting on a regular scrapbook page. Thanks for the great giveaway!

dmoore1823 said...

Loving Project Life!!! I always get such inspiration from your posts...thank you for that! In my own personal project life I was so excited to add my boys first trip to the dentist. They did so well and I love that the pics help me to relive that day and just giggle. Since finding out I have MS this project has become so important for me. I want to be able to relive all the everyday stuff. Again thank you for your creative ideas!

I love to add little tid bits from everyday life when I can...like reciepts from the store or places we eat or tags from products.

anya said...

Just as I was kicking off Project Life this year, my mom was in the hospital for surgery. I debated, too, about whether it was something I wanted to include and ultimately I did. She was really sick and out of it for quite a while, so I focused on taking pictures and telling the story without making her uncomfortable by taking photos of her. I am glad that I chose to tackle it and include the story instead of shying away from it. Thank you for sharing your inspiration for dealing with the tough stuff, too.

Thanks for sharing your PL pages. Since I'm so busy working on my granddaugher's upcoming June wedding, I'm sharing a lot of the projects--favors, decorations, inviations, showers,... This will be a great help when I complete a wedding album for my granddaughter as a Christmas present.

Nancy said...

I love this idea of Project Life! Now that my son is a college freshmen and in his first season of lacrosse @ the college level, I would love to be able to document his life now and moving forward with project life, so that maybe when he has a family, I can pass the tradition on to them. Love this!

Miriam Prantner said...

So glad to hear that your Dad's surgery was a success. I do love your PL updates, it's always fun to see how different people interpret things. Thanks for the chance to win!

I am excited to add a story about my husband's journey in finding a new job. Thank you for the great giveaway!

I've been loving the Big Envelopes to keep concert programs. My dh is a choir director & sings in a semi-professional choir & dd in college has sung in various honors choirs/college choir so we go to a lot of amazing concerts. Until the Big Envelopes came out, I never knew what to do with the concert programs - knew I wanted to save them but didn't know where. Now I document the concert when it happens and put the program in the envelope. Makes me happy to have everything documented and in the same place!

Michelle said...

I will be adding stories this year about my daughter's first pregnancy and my trip to becoming a Grandma for the first time!

I don't currently do Project Life, but I get the hankering to when I see everyone else's!

Lee Anne said...

I've added some 12x12 pages to my Project Life Album - special days that "required" more than one picture. I also have added quite a few embellishments. I took a year off of Project Life, and I am missing it. Winning a kit would be perfect timing for me!

Monika/Buzsy said...

What an awesome project! I've been coming back and checking your pages out weekly! I don't have a PL started yet, but I would love to do it! I have all the products in my shopping bag on Amazon for months now! LOL! I think first I'd just do a week that shows our everyday life! As much as special occasions are nice, the everyday life is something we will forget and don't look back on. After that, I'd somehow go back to the days the kids were born. 2 days I want to remember forever! :o)
Thanks for the inspirations Michelle.

Yvonne..... said...

I am loving Project Life and seeing all of the designer's take on their albums. My favorite "thing(s)" in my album have to be the food packaging. I used the oreo wrapper for the oreo cookies' birthday, the peeps packaging for Easter, etc. Collecting things is just as much fun as taking pictures!

What a beautiful and special layout of your Dad. I absolutely love your pages and the great inspiration they provide! The special pieces included in my album are the journaling cards completed by my daughter and husband. I love that project life gives them the opportunity to include their thoughts and feelings as well.

Thanks for this great giveaway!

I would love to win this to document our life changes on our farm. We have just gone through two puppy births and have added 7 chicks that are growing rapidly. I think this would be wonderful to look back to over the years.

Mel said...

I'm not yet a project lifer, but really enjoy how you've put a difficult time into your scrapbook. It reminds us all that life is not always peachy. I scrapbooked my mother when she had to shave her hair for her chemo, and it was a really wonderful and helpful thing for me personally.

Jeani said...

I would love a chance to win the PL package!!! OMGosh!!! I am only a week behind in my PL this year, but have found it much easier to stay caught up since I bought my Selphy (thanks to your post about it!). I have been including my boys' school work/awards in my pages and I love it! Thanks again for the chance to win.

Including the hard parts of our life is one of the most difficulting things to decide upon. Yesterday was the first time my sister-in-law and brother came to my mom's for dinner in over 3 months because of a family situation that happend at Christmas. I have been struggling with the decision to inlcude it, but you have given me the motivation to do so! I am so happy to hear that your dad is doing well!

I added a photo of my young daughters' (7 and 4 years old) and my church volunteer badges before we turned the actual badges in. The girls got to experience volunteering as "junior leaders" alongside me and it was such a humbling experience to see their commitment and joy.

I am already using Project Life for myself but am entering for my mom who is visiting from Singapore. This would be a great set for her to take home with her! Thanks for the opportunity.

Susan said...

I've added a photo collage of my daughter's school field trip to the state capital.

Victoria Manning said...

I've been wanting to do Project Life for about half a year now - since I first got into scrapbooking. I just never seem to have the money. I have two little ones and I would love to document their growth and the fun things we do as a family. I really believe that Project Life would help me organize and get better with preserving our childrens childhood. :) Thank you for the awesome inspiration for layouts, and the opportunity to win this amazing prize.

Marie-Pierre said...

Hi Michelle! Your Project Life is so soft, I like it a lot. :) My album is FULL of special things, 12x12 pages when my daughter make a special art project in school for example, or a page protector perfect for some instagrams pictures, some little bits of ephemera, a lot of journaling on journaling cards, even when I don't have any photo to back the story up. Last week a friend of ours had to go back to Europe so the story was told on 3 little journaling cards. :) Thanks for the chance to win.

Mindy said...

Simply amazing giveaway! Thank you so much for the chance!

Amanda said...

would love to win. I'm hoping to start PL in July for my bday

Flo - Sweetideas said...

I'm a little more behind than you are. I need more inserts, just have to get them ordered. Thanks.

Kim said...

As always, your Project Life pages are so inspiring. I am just a week or two behind in my book but I have to say I really love capturing the day to day stuff that we do and before when I scrapbooked I only documented the major events but now all of the day to day things are so much more important...thanks for the chance to win!

Thanks for the chance to win this kit! I have been doing a digital Project Life album this year because I have been unable to get a kit. This would be an awesome chance to be able to add the ephemera of life. I have been focusing on adding journaling on our thoughts and feelings on everyday life. Can't wait for this opportunity!

I love this concept and would like to try it out! A current story I would like to scrapbook is about how life has changed now that I am an empty-nester.

Thanks for sharing your ideas!

scrappinkay said...

hey, i've followed your blog off and on for a couple years. I'm a fellow Kansan.

I haven't been able to purchase any project life kits so I don't have anything to tell you that I've done but I am very interested in this concept and I think it would be great to personalize things on my own in photoshop and print my own journal cards and stuff.

Creative Escape said...

Yay,

I am already doing project life, but would love to win and be able to gift my winnings to my sister : ) She is an awesome photographer, and I would be so excited to see what her finished product turned out being.

For my project life album, I add a quote from one of my two kiddos every week. They are 3 and 5 years old, and say the darndest things... It brings me so much joy to be able to go back and read some of the things that come out of their cute little mouths.

Thanks for the chance to win.

There isn't just one story, but many coming up that I want to document. As I have mentioned in entries on other blogs for this prize I have a lot of big changes coming (marriage, graduating form law school, moving to a new state for a new job) that I think PL would be perfect for documenting. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

joni said...

Love your PL pages! And I loved that you provided so much of what you used in putting them together. Thank you!!! And I'm so sorry to hear about your dads cancer, but happy to hear that it was caught early....I'm placing you all on my prayer list.Thanks for sharing!

So very glad your Dad's surgery was a success. Tears in my eyes reading this as I am in week 3 at my mom's hospital bedside after a cancerous tumor was removed from her spine from both the front and back. Trying to stay strong and be there for her. I am taking a few select photos to share with close family and friends too, and I think it's the right thing to do even though it's not easy. Thanks so much for this giveaway chance and hope your Dad continues to do well.

Heather Leigh said...

I haven't started using PL, yet. Well, I have one of the core kits, but I use those on traditional layouts. However, I collect SO much ephemera that I'd love to stash into PL...notes written to me by my 7 year old, movie tickets to last night's viewing of The Hunger Games, a special card from my sister via snail mail even though she only lives two towns away, the program from my 10th graders choir concert, the letter from the school about the number of absences my son has had being a little too high (he's been very sick this year)...those are the kinds of things I'd pop into the PL pages.

Cony said...

I haven't started PL yet but I just got married in January and would love to use it to document my new life! February 14 was our the ten-year anniversary of the day we met, our one-month wedding anniversary, and our first Valentine's Day as husband and wife so would definitely be a highlight in our album!

I love that you included your dad's surgery. It probably sounds dumb, but I wish I had scrapped all of my dad's surgeries/health issues over the years. They were important events in my life and my family's life, and I think remembering some of the details would help me to look back and remember the good parts of those events (because there were some good parts, too) and to remember how strong he is.

I love adding little pieces of ephemera to my scrapbooks - receipts, movie tickets, the labels from soda bottles, etc. I have been wanting to try PL for a long time and hope to win a kit! Thanks so much for having a giveaway :)

I actually haven't started Project Life, but I really want to! I intend to use it as more of a scrapbook (both current and past) to more quickly go through preserving my giant backlog of photos. One thing I want to be sure to include are those cute little sayings that are always popping out of my kids' mouths. I think this format is perfect for that! Thanks!

I love the 6x12 pages - I have used them to include invites I've made (5x7) as well as to be able to include more detailed journaling for special events.

I've been thinking about starting Project Life for way too long now. Would love to have more of our everyday life documented. Thanks for the chance and for the wonderful inspiration!

I just started my project life this year. I love the process and the value of this project. One of the things I add to my PL are actual memorabilia like tickets, my dd's hair, and her drawings

So sorry about what your dad is going through, and all of you with him. So thankful they had good news for you. I haven't started PL, but keep looking at everyone's pages.

Wow! Thank you for a chance to win a wonderful prize package! I'm just starting on a Project Life album and was a little bummed that several products I wanted were out of stock.

First I want to say I have been reading your blog for so long and its a great source of inspiration. I know you'd mentioned your Dad and his having surgery. I'm sorry he is going thru this and unfortunately,I know how hard it is on a family to have this going on.
I enjoy seeing all your PL pages every week and appreciate the time it must take just to post it all!
I'd love a chance to win - thanks Michelle.

Anna said...

I love your blog and follow it regularly! It's my favorite to come to for inspiration!!! I just started project life a few weeks ago and I find it a little hard to keep up with at times because I have a hard time narrowing down the photos I take during the week!!! I want to include so many!!! So, I've actually started adding inserts every week so far. What I do is make my own college in photoshop of an event in particular that needs a bunch of photos to tell the story. Then I put them all in the photoshop document all sized down and kind of squished together, label/date it, and print it out. They always end up looking cute that way and I feel better because I've squeezed in more photos to tell the story!

Thank you so much for this chance to win!!!

I need to be better to document hospital stays--we have had a few and I always tried to forget them. Lost my dad to cancer and have nothing so I glad you added it for yours.

Alicia said...

My PL plans are sitting in my brain, waiting for a chance to be released...

I have a list of adorable things my four-year-old has said in the last year, since beginning speech therapy. Things that are so cute I could cry, and things that literally make me laugh out loud! These NEED to get documented!!!

I take the photo a day approach, but to add additional photos from one event (party, vacation, etc) I create a 4x6 or 5x7 pocket album and insert it into a page protector. This has worked out well for days where "one" photo was not enough.

Unknown said...

Would love to start project life! I would do a bi-monthly version. Thanks for the chance.

ruth said...

Always love seeing what you do with your PL pages!

Looking back my favorite things are the random things that I included. Like a photo of our cute puppy...right beside a photo of a chair cushion he tried to eat. Not just the 'event' stuff, but also the not so great side of life.

Ruth from Michigan

cjbrandon said...

Thanks for sharing your PL. This is weird, but I've put my son's turning key for his palatal expander in our PL. Now that I think about it, it's kinda gross, but it was a memorable experience for both of us this past year. Thanks for the chance to win!

I just got interested in project life and love all the inspirationa I've found so far. It would be awesome to win one of these kits. I started one using just a regular photo album with sleeves included. I would love to try the real thing. I have an app on my Ipod where I take photos each day and it saves them until I can print them and add to my pages.

I've been putting it off so just to win a kid and start thinking about what to put in it would be fun. I know my excuse (I'm single) is silly, but that's why I've been procrastinating.

I have little kids - the oldest is almost 5, and there are so many drawings and what not being produced here. I love having a place to keep a few favorites! Flipping through my PL album and seeing the little love notes with drawings and early spelling attempts is priceless! Thanks for the chance to win!

Just starting my Project Life for this year...started it on my 53rd birthday in March. I'm determined to keep up with it this year...last year I made till April...and that was it, and now I'm said I didn't finish it.

I am glad that you decided to document your dad's journey. You're right - as difficult as it is, it is a part of your life's journey. In my PL, I include the 8 1/2 x 11 calendars from PTI that I embellish. It shows all of the appointments that I have to keep up with for my son's sutism treatment. Would I rather forget this journey? You bet! I wish that autism didn't exist, but it does, and it is a HUGE part of my family's life. It needs to be documented.

LOVE your Project Life. I'm not doing Project Life, but would love to be able to!! I would love including some of the memorabilia along with photos of our lives.

Kim Mears said...

I am doing Project Life digitally, so I don't add a lot of "stuff" to my pages. The most special thing I have added are scans of my boys' artwork. I need to add some Facebook posts and stuff like that. I always forget!

Cheryl said...

I am new, very new to PL. In fact I just received a few inserts a couple weeks ago. I have my photos and memorabilia all ready to go...was just waiting for some new product to get restocked. Also waiting for the inserts that are most used by everyone and have been unavailable to get started! You have so many great ideas. One of the first things I will be including are memorabilia from scouts, dance, and baseball and some of the kids artwork. I bought those 12/12 large pocket pages and can't wait to use them! Thanks for the great giveaway!
