Project Life..week of January 23rd
Here's the full two page spread. Two things to note. One, I've really been getting scrappy with my PL pages. Adding in lots of little tidbits, scrappy papers and accents. Loving it so much. Secondly, I'm treating the two pages of one week basically like a two page layout now. The two pages act like a double layout with coordinating papers, etc. But totally in my mixy matchy fashion. So fun to dig into my stash of scrapbooking supplies.
The left page of the layout.
The right page of the layout.
Here I used small letter stickers and chipboard letters. Plus a flower accent that I stitched through. Inside of this fold out journaling piece is a story of how we got Josey 7 formal dresses at a dress auction held at a high school fundraiser. All for $63 bucks and like brand new!
A cut up orthodontist business card and clock embellishment, both stitched on. Also love the date stamp that Becky includes with each PL kit. Fun tool.
Here I used patterned paper and a chipboard accent + tiny little alphabet litter stickers.
And a blue tag from my shop with puffy letters sewn on. Lisa Truesdell does this and I love the idea. Keeps letters from falling off years down the road. And that does it for that week.
Project Life..week of January 30th
The left page layout.
And the right page layout. Notice that yummy drink on this layout. My new fave.
I really love to dress up the top left journaling block that has the date on it. Here I used a blank journaling tag (you can purchase separately and I use them all.the.time.). I added some typewriter journaling with my vintage typewriter, another favorite tool to use with PL. Love. The little fabric yo yo is a sample my mom made that goes along with the photo next to it.
Here I grabbed some scraps from my scrappy basket. Used a Papertrey Fillable Frame die cut (the negative piece) and it's coordinating stamp image in yellow ink. The circle outline is from an Ali Edwards Technique Tuesday stamp.
Here I used some sheet music patterned paper and typewriter journaling. On the right I added a smaller photo with some scalloped edging + machine stitching.
Another die cut and coordinating stamp from a Papertrey Fillable Frames collection. I love to have them overlap the edge, then cut it off and then stitch over it. On the right I tried my hand at misting(with Studio Calico Mr. Hueys) over alphabet stamps that were lined up on the journaling block. Spray then remove the stamps, then stamp the letters. Very fun technique I saw from the Studio Calico girls but I have learned to hold the mist further away, like a foot or so. Okay, that wraps up this week's entry.
I have several more weeks of Project Life to show you so stay tuned for more this week, including how I add additional layouts in with my PL pages.
Also, I am purging lots of crafty items from my stamp room (major room swap this summer) so be looking for more information on items to go up in my Etsy shop and on sale pages here on the bloggo. Hope you're having a fantastic weekend. How's your Project Life going? I'd love to hear.
