Welcome to Project Life Tuesday 2013 If you are new to The Mom Creative, welcome. I hope you will stay awhile. I’m Jessica – wife to Matthew, mom to Elias, a silly and spirited four-year-old, and Adeline, a spunky one-year-old. I’m also a marketing professional, savvy deal finder, photo lover and memory keeper trying to juggle it all.
Each Tuesday, I share my most recent spread as well as host a linky for readers to link up their pictures/layouts. Links are affiliate links.
I kept things really simple this week. The weekend (which is when I work on Project Life) was crazy and it was all I could do to scrape this layout together. I actually didn’t finish it until this morning. But, I’m thrilled to have another week documented. I’m also thankful that this weekend should be a bit quieter and I will have several hours to get caught up.
I love the photos from this week. Lots of outside shots – spring has arrived! Everything came together pretty quickly mostly because there isn’t a ton of writing or embellishments.
The photos on the left were almost all from a trip to the park. They were all so magical (Matthew took them) that I kept the design simple, adding just a few Maggie Holmes word stickers. The Jade journaling cards add a nice pop.
The 6×12 insert (always a favorite for me) came together a bit by accident. I had planned to put the pink accent cardstock on the right side of the photo. As I was inking the butterfly sticker before adhering it to the spot, I dropped the ink pad face down on the photo. It landed right next to the pink accent, so I simply pulled it off the photo (leaving a bit of glue residue), added more ink to the pink (since the pad landed partly on it) and glued it to the left side. It may not be balanced as well, but I still love it.
On the back of the 6×12 insert, I simply printed a strip of three 6×4 photos since I didn’t have a big soccer photo that I loved. I added a little sticker to the bottom and nothing else.
On the right side, all the journaling is on the one card in the upper right. You might notice that the card is actually the date card for the other side. I simply covered up the vertical white line (intended for a date) with the happy silly card and wrote right on it. I love when I can use both sides of a card.
