First off, I'd like to report that our girls pulled off a big win last night and will be playing in the championship game of Sub State play! Woohoo!!
Okay, on to a project. Today I'm sharing Week 6 of my Project Life 2013. This was a busy week as both my girls were going to Winter Ball. I had dresses to mend, flowers to order, hair appointments to make, transportation to plan, etc. I used my Project Life notebook to sketch out all of my photo layouts. I didn't get to the inserts yet but those are next on my list.
For this week, the Echo Park Photo Freedom patterned paper drew my attention. All of products you see below were from the March Main Kit from Gossamer Blue. The Main Kit is now sold out but you can find the patterned papers I used in the March Main Kit Paper Only. Almost all of the March items from Gossamer Blue sold out speedy quick but quantities will be increasing monthly. I'm really excited to be joining GB in it's growing stages and I can already see our community growing quickly.
So that paper with the 3 x 4 and 4 x 6 cut outs was just perfect for this week's Project Life, I decided. It was a great way to plan out a very busy week ahead of time.
With all of the fun, coordinating embellishments like the Elle's Studio circle tags, the MME Enamel Dots, the label stickers and the small alphabet, it would be easy to add my photos and accents.
First thing I did was cut apart that sheet of Project Life patterned paper. I created just a few customized cards using strips of patterned paper and the rest of the pieces were just put into place. I used Project Life grid cards as blanks, not knowing if those spaces would be filled with photos, journaling cards, etc. It was so nice to have this week pre-planned.
Once I had my photos I referred to my sketch to see if it would work with how I spread out the inserts. It was pretty easy to print my photos to the sizes I needed. Below is a photo with all the photos plopped on top of the inserts. I love when I have lots of photos because that is always the focus of my albums + it means that it takes less time to embellish.
Here's my finished Week 6. First thing I notice is how colorful this week's layout it. What a great set of kits Gossamer Blue put out this month. I use lots of white backgrounds to offset such a colorful mix.

More from Vegas, this time we have a winner. I added a screen shot of some texts from Eric showing me his winnings.
That's it for this week of Project Life. I was able to create almost 30 items with my Gossamer Blue kits this month, with lots of supplies leftover. What I love about Gossamer Blue is that we offer general "craft kits".....not specific to any particular paper crafting love.....but there is definitely something for everyone. All this month I'll be blogging my projects which cover Project Life, cards, and gift packaging. So if you purchased some kit items, be sure to stop back often for some more inspiration.
