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 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.
The bulk of the photos in this week's spread are from Adeline's birthday party (click here to view all the party details). There were so many good ones- it was hard to narrow them down.
For the first page, I kept things simple – just an assortment of photos from the week leading up to Adeline's birthday party. (Don't you love the migraine self portrait – lol.)
The 5×7 insert includes Adeline's birthday invite + some Sesame Street scrapbook paper I used with her party decorations.
The 6×12 insert has my favorite photo of Adeline from the party. I added a “2” for her age. The thicker is one I got at TJMaxx (they have tons of packs of Thickers for only $1.49) and the round journaling card is an oldie from my stash (I think it's Elle's Studio). The backside is a photo of the two of us. I love it!
The Design G insert is all photos from the party. The front side focused mostly on games from the party. I included some instagrams putting the games together, as well as journaling about them. The right side of the page has two slots for 4×6 photos, but I used three 4×3 photos instead + a journaling card from one of the mini school kits.
On the backside, the Good Times card is from the Honey kit and the balloons journaling card is from the Dear Lizzy kit that was available exclusively through HSN earlier this year.
I used a Design B page for the last page in the spread. The first two columns included more party photos, while the last row had some swimming pictures and Adeline's 2 year check up.
For Adeline's check up picture, I collaged several photos on a 4×6 picture and wrote her stats directly on the image.
Whew! That was a lot of photos! 🙂
Project Life links and posts worth checking out
Snapfish has some great special offers right now, including getting 99 prints for 99 cents with the code BDAYUSA (expires 7/17/13). These sales are a great way to get caught up on printing photos!
I love Brooke's Bigger Things project that she is doing with her Project Life album – a must-see. What an inspiration to do more journaling about what is going on in your life.
Laura Kate's yellow, white and turquoise spread is so fun!
I love everything about Sarah Boirin's spread. Such talent!
Becky Higgins is sharing the summer CHA Project Life releases all week. The Project Life Sunshine kit will probably be what I use for my 2014 album. Love it so much. The Heritage edition is also very pretty.
