  • Project Life Extravaganza – Weeks #14 – #18

    I’m back with the last 5 weeks of Project Life. Project Life is rather quick and efficient and I wasn’t that far behind. It takes me more time to take the pictures and post the layouts than it does for me to make them.

    I ran into one of Emily’s former preschool teachers at the grocery store that I hadn’t seen in 5 years. She said, “I sure do miss seeing those precious kids of yours in your Project Life posts.” Oops. I didn’t even know she knew that I wrote a blog.

    So this is a very photo heavy post with few words. Grab a cup of jo and enjoy! And if you didn’t read yesterday’s post, I am hosting my first link up next Friday, May 18th called Telling Your Story. It consists of 5 simple photographs. You can read about it here. I am getting REALLY excited. These picture ideas will be great to use for your project life albums.

    Week #14

    Stationary from B Designs Letterpress
    Week #15

    Stationary from YeeHawIndustries (illustrated by Bjorn Rune Lie)
    Week #16

    Stationary from Yellow Owl Workshop
    Insert {Design E}

    I kind of love this. Look for this to be repeated. I always include a letter to my children each week, but I love celebrating each child individually some weeks and Design E makes it super simple with having 4 kids.
    Week #17

    Stationary from Egg Press
    Week #18

    Stationary from Found Image Press
    Insert {8.5 x 11}

    This was my gratitude sheet that I talk about here. On the other side was the roster of all the kids who made the All Star baseball team printed off from an email. I actually printed it off a second time, because Ben fell asleep with the first one I printed off. He’s possibly a little bit excited.

    Little touches:

    The title cards were all made from pages from my assorted Smash journals with assorted ribbons, washi tape, old Making Memories word stickers, Elle Studio numbers, and letter stickers.

    I printed off several pictures to 2 x 3 inches and stapled them onto the 3 x 4 journaling cards. I have loved playing with different sizes of pictures, including instagram sized pictures.

      Steal away. It’s all good as long as we all tell our stories!

    Love the idea of writing letters to your kids and all the journaling/writing in this layout. There’s so much information and so much of you when you do that.

      One of my favorite things that I’ve done as a mom is to write letters to my kids. I’ve grown as a person and as a mom from them as well.

    Wow. You have been super busy. Like that’s new for you, huh?! Fab pages. Like everyone else who’s commented I love the way you used that Design E to include your letters to your children. I also lingered over the Nutella Cupcakes photo….

      You have such a kind, giving heart. I’m so thankful for you.

    I love what you’ve done with the design E page protector and the letters to your kids!! They’re the page protectors that I’ve had the most trouble thinking of uses for, and I think this is an awesome way to use it! I don’t have kids, but I can see myself writing a letter to my partner and putting it in one or 2 of the slots with some 6×6 photos.

      You could even cut the Design E in half if you wanted. I was thinking of doing that for another project.
      You could also see if your partner would write a letter to you back if it’s not considered too corny. My husband has let go of that but it took a couple of years.

        I love the idea of getting my partner to write a message back… He’ll usual do something like that if I ask, but he’ll be cheeky about it. I might talk him in to it for our anniversary coming up in July!
