Project Life 2014....Week 9 using Simple Stories from April Gossamer Blue Kits

In lieu of a Workspace Wednesday post, I'm sharing Week 9 of my Project Life 2014 so that I get caught up on sharing some completed weeks.  This is my 2 page spread of Week 9 which uses lots of Simple Stories products from the April Gossamer Blue kits. 
Each month Gossamer Blue highlights a few different companies so it makes it easy to pull from all the different kits to get a totally coordinated look.
I mixed in journaling cards and elements from the kits + used a few of the patterned papers to create my own journaling cards. I think my favorite spreads are ones that coordinate like this....but that still have that mixy matchy feel.
This is the dated, main 4 x 6 insert which combines lots of paper elements +  brads, foam stickers, stitching, Washi tape and exclusive GB wood veneer and stamps.
Loved the little plastic clips.  I used this little frame stamp a lot this month.  It was perfect for adding the date stamp.
A collage photo with typed journaling on a small label adhered with Washi tape.
This was a favorite journaling card from the Simple Stories lineup.
Here I added some yellow watercoloring around the circle part of this journaling card.  Love the artistic touch this adds along with more of the GB exclusive stamps.
Here's where I added journaling cards that I made myself using patterned paper.  Love.
A little messy bundle of thread went perfectly with the brad accent and journaling card.  On the right I added lots of sticker elements and a wood veneer to a weather photo. Enough snow and wind already, bring me Summer!
Okie doke, tomorrow we're moving on to the May Gossamer Blue release!  Happy shopping!

Discussion topic:  What's been your favorite little trick to add to your Project Life pages lately?  I love getting stampy here and there with little labels and words and especially like stamping right onto the photos.

Always love to see your pages, Michelle. I'm keeping up to date with PL this year and that is definitely making it more enjoyable. As much as I love your layouts, to keep up to date, I'm doing less in each pocket - sometimes just a photo or journaling card. I may only use an embellishment or two on a 2-page spread. But pictures are printed and memories are recorded so all is good!

I so appreciate your journaling style!! The card on the tutoring makes me smile. As the mom of boy, I will note that those boys might be a little smarter than you think...they are studying with a very cute girl!! :-)
Happy Monday!!
