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 almost 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. For lots more inspiration, follow me on Facebook!
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.
With Adeline's birthday party this weekend, I was lucky to get one layout done! Thankfully I had edited the photos earlier, so I just had to put the spread together. Once again, I appreciated how simple Project Life makes it to document memories – even when you are busy.
For the first page, I kept things very simple with lots of photos + one journaling card. You can also see I used a rub-on from my stash on the date card. An extra flower sneaked in above the bird, but oh well. It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful, right?
Then for the first Design H insert, I trimmed top row of slots off to make the page 6×8. I added an embellished paper clip to make the page easy to turn and break up the two pages since they are the same width.
The back side was equally simple with just photos + words. 🙂
The second Design H insert was all photos from my friend Angie and her daughter Charlotte's birthday party. I did all the journaling for the insert on the single card.
The last page is a We R Memory Keepers page. I love having the option to include large photos within my spreads. This page has a 12×6 slot and eight 3×3 slots. (I printed all these photos on my printer at home) I trimmed the I Love Today card (from the Honey edition) and glued it to my 12×6 photo, then added journaling to the top portion of the card. I also trimmed the quote card from the Bridgeport childhood kit. I thought it was our so perfect for the photos on the page. (It says, “We teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.”)
