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.
This weekend I made major headway on my album. I completed January and started February – yay! I bet I flipped through my album a dozen times. I just love Project Life.
I also stamped all my date cards through May while watching television with Matthew last night.
Today, I am going to share two weeks of pages because I think any more than that is too overwhelming for one blog post.
Why yes, that is Elias playing dress up with my bra. #awesome. What a way to start our year, yes? 🙂
You’ll notice another card from the school days kit – this time a self-portrait that Elias drew of himself. (see photo at the top of the post for a close-up)
Since I had so many photos on the left hand side, I decided to journal right on the date card. I also added a rub-on from my stash. The journaling card in the bottom row is from a past Project Life kit.
The “Packer Backer” text are glitter thickers – my favorites.
I love this big photo of Adeline. I have a feeling it will forever be one of my favorite photos of her. The sticker is an old Love, Elsie sticker. I really like how the Design B page came together. The horizontal Project Life cards make my heart SO happy. I also used a half card on the second row.
To jazz up these pages, I used a ton of Little Yellow Bicycle stickers that I have had in my stash for a few years. They make the spread look totally different from the rest of the album, but I don’t care. I love it!
The left page is all photos taken from our Bloom book club shoot on January 19. I know that makes the spread a bit backward, but that’s okay. It just worked better with the photos that I had to set up the spread that way. I did all the journaling on one vertical grid card and added a sticker across the bottom. (Pictured: Angie, Robin, Julie, RoseAnne and Melissa.)
For the Design I (Instagram) insert, I did all the journaling for the insert of the top square. (I just cut a piece of cardstock to 4×4).
Here you can see the backside of the I insert + the Design A insert. For the last page, I did one journaling card for the whole page. I used number stickers to tie the journaling card sentences to the pictures (one of my favorite techniques). To unify the spread’s design, I used a yellow bicycle sticker on the big journaling card.
Your turn to link up! Also, just a friendly reminder to please remember to link back to The Mom Creative in your posts. Thank you!
