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. Some links are affiliate links.
Gosh, I was so close to being caught up and then bam! I'm behind again. With the rummage sale, a soccer game and two parties last weekend, there was no time for working on Project Life. (I did get the quickest scrapbook ever completed, so that's something, right?)
I'm not frustrated though. With Memorial Day weekend coming up, I should be able to get back on track.
Last week I shared a peak at a few samples from some of the core kits hitting Hobby Lobby. My friend Angie was able to swing by the store on Friday and they still had a holiday core kit, so she picked it up for me. Yay! It is really cute and I am excited to incorporate some of the cards into my album. The only downside is that the cards have a cream base, and I prefer for cards in my album to have a white base. I'll definitely still use them in my album, but thought I'd mention it because I know that I am not the only one with that preference.
Also, a few weeks ago I asked if anyone had suggestions for organizing Project Life cards. While the core kit boxes are pretty and store well, I really like for my cards to stand up for easy flipping.
Y'all! They are perfect. Moreover, they are about $3.
I am using one bin for patterned journaling cards and one for solid cards + past kit cards. The system is working really well for me.
Just thought I would pass along the tip in case anyone else was planning a trip to Ikea. These are worth picking up!
Project Life posts worth checking out
If you haven't signed up for the to check out the Phone Photography Project class, don't miss it. It is going to be incredible + have tons of tips and inspiration for you to kick up your phone photos a few notches. Plus, it's on sale for a limited time.
I love how bright Amy's layout was last week. Plus, she put it together totally with digital freebies.
This layout by Gretchen is pretty perfect. Love the design symmetry.
Joyful Whimsy's spread was so fun. I love how much she fit into a two-page spread + all the journaling she incorporated directly on the photos.
Did you see that Becky Higgins added a store locator to her site? I was so excited to see so many big box and mom and pop retailers carrying Project Life.
