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 five-year-old, and Adeline, a spunky two-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. Some links are affiliate links.
Like I said last week, I am still in catch-up mode for Project Life. This week I finished one of my last summer layouts, as well as worked on organizing my September photos. I’m hoping I can make more headway this coming weekend.
I didn’t take a lot of photos during this week in July because I was so busy getting ready for Elias’s birthday party. Thankfully, the volume of photos that I took at the party made up for my lack of photos during the week. Count ‘em – SIX page protectors in this spread. That’s crazy.
The Design D page and the 6×12 insert are almost all photos from when we took the kids to some local fountains. We took so many great pictures – it was hard to narrow it down. I used some Dear Lizzy stickers on the photos, but overall kept things pretty simple.
Then I used a 5×7 insert for Elias’s birthday invitation.
The backside of the 5×7 is one of my favorite photos of Elias from the party. I love that he’s got his gear on, you can see the X marks the spot and the treasure chest. I also dug out some old scrapbook supplies to do a simple 10×8 page. (SO sorry the photo is crummy of this spread.) I used this to write all about Elias’s epic pirate party. “The Best Party Ever” are thickers, as are the 5 and embellishments around the photo.
On the back of the insert, I slipped in the clues from the treasure hunt. I then added a Design H page protector for more photos.
The last pages are simply photos + a few predesigned cards from various Project Life kits. I didn’t think any words were needed and I was following my own catch-up advice to keep things simple.
Again, I am reminded that I love the simplicity of Project Life. Perfect for busy mamas like me!
How is Project Life going for you?
