Project Life 2013....Week 5

Hey everyone.  I've had a few comments about what Project Life is and how I go about doing it.  I'll take some photos of an upcoming weekly spread to show you my process and describe a bit about Project Life to the new folks.  I'll also take some photos of my Project Life organization + a few ideas about organizing kit items.  

Today I have Week 5 of my Project Life 2013 to show you.  Here's the 2 page spread.   It's a very random week with just a lot of daily photos.  
I ended up using a lot of the Project Life Seafoam core kit for this week. It made the process go very quickly.  
 Just a handful of other embellishments like tags, Washi tape and chipboard letters.
 Here is my Calendar Card which has the week #, a few notes about the week and the dates that the week covers. Round tag is from Evalicious along with a few of her stamps.  I also used the Studio Calico Project Life stamp, covering up a portion with the chipboard #5.
 On this photo I used a Grid Paper Arrow Label that I ran through my typewriter.  I love that I can add these labels and they don't create any bulk to my pages.
Here I used a Seafoam 4 x 6 card with a portion of a notecard on the bottom for journaling.  Stamps are from Studio Calico Project Life kit. 
 Another Seafoam 4 x 6 card with 2 Instagram photos.  I used Washi tape for a quick embellishment.
 I created this collage in my iPhoto program.  Nothing too fancy but it was an easy way to get 8 photos on a 4 x 6 insert.
 On to the 3 x 4 inserts.  On the left I have one of my Wild Cards.  This card replaced my Week in Review cards this year.  Basically, anything goes....artwork, a random photo, a quote...or duct tape.  I used a Medium White Tag for the typewriter journaling.  For the card on the right, it coordinates with the next card in the photo below this one..see the main photo for the big picture.....basically I used 2 of the same journaling cards from the Seafoam kit to make a "this to this" mini layout, depicting our crazy change of weather.
 On the right I created my own journaling card using patterned paper, a punched circle of patterned paper and an Elle's Studio tag.
 The right card below is a Seafoam journaling card with chipboard lettering.  On the right I used a Small Manila Parcel Tag on an altered Elle's Studio card.
 More photos of Charlie.  He keeps us so entertained.
And that's a wrap for this week.  Thanks for stopping by.  :)  Stay tuned for the Gossamer Blue March release on March 1st.  I've got a lot of projects to show you this month....you card lovers will be happy. :)  Stay safe and warm this weekend...looks like more snow starting Sunday.

I HAVE to laugh at your mammogram photo! I have often been known to say I'd rather get a pap test than go to the dentist! LOL We're definitely cut from the same cloth!

GREAT pages, Michelle! I love all of your embellishments. The last photo made me laugh. Our Weimaraner Ellie Mae stands on us just like that. We think she's trying to be taller than we are to show she's in charge. :)

I always love to see your PL pages-so creative! I was wondering about your photo printing process. What printer do you use at home?
