Project 52/Project Life 2016 Week 42

Hi guys, today I am sharing with you a layout from my 2016 Project Life album for Week 42! This was created in the Project Life App, printed, and embellished on top!

This was the week of my birthday, October 19th, so most of my photos are from that day. Our children were so proud to help Alan make dinner for me while I relaxed on the sofa! My heart is filled with gratitude and I love bringing that gratitude into these layouts!

My layout for this week was created in the Project Life App using the Stampin’ Up Hello Lovely Edition! I print my layouts here at home using a Canon Pixma wide format printer on Staples brand matte photo paper, and then I embellish on top.

The left hand side of my layout features an enlarged photo of my view from the sofa as my family lovingly prepared dinner for me on my birthday. This photo invokes lots of happy memories and feelings for me, some of which I’m not even sure I have words for. But that is totally ok. Include the photo anyway, and use your ephemera to help invoke some of those unwritten feelings. I have used my One Little Bird stamp set to add the week number and dates, and a few simple 3-dimensional embellishments from Freckled Fawn.

I loved using this polka dot card as a background for simple embellishing. All it needed was a strip of washi tape from Pink Paislee, a stamped sentiment, and just a few tiny ephemera pieces.

My right hand side features supporting photos from by birthday and a few other miscellaneous photos from the week.

Now, when I placed the little flag clip here, it stands above the page and when I slid it into the page protector in my album, it stood up too tall to fit in my shelf. So I laid that flag down flat and it layers nicely over the other banners. Ha!

This filler card was fun to embellish! I used the stamp set from Gossamer Blue and numbers from Pinkfresh Studio to create my list. Also, did you catch what all is underneath the puffy house sticker? It took three tries for me to get the house right – don’t be afraid to cover things up that you don’t absolutely love!

Just a few more embellishments and this layout is done. Notice how I carried the colors from the Hello Lovely kit right through in my embellishments to keep everything cohesive. Ah, love it!

Project Life 2016 | Weeks 36 & 38 Feat. Pink Paislee Moonstruck!!!

Hi there! Today I have two separate layouts to share with you and I thought I would just combine them into the same process so we can get things done! I am sharing Weeks 36 and 38 in my 2016 Project Life album. Have a look at my process here:

 

Let’s begin with Week 36, which I created in the Project Life App using the Project 52 cards available in the app. I then embellished on top of the printed layout, using Pink Paislee Moonstruck.

I used the date card for this week and then embellished using one of the floral ephemera from the Moonstruck pack.

I had a combination of colors in my photos for this week, and a set color scheme from the Project Life cards. The Moonstruck collection pulled all of these colors together beautifully!

This bloom is one of the flowers we have planted out by our mailbox. Some days we aren’t sure if it is making it or not, but then it surprises us and gives us a pretty bloom.

One of my favorite things about my husband is that he is a great baker. He loves to make biscuits sometimes, and this was a great opportunity to include that in our album. Also, he is using a ramekin to cut the dough circles, and my mom used to use those ramekins when she made her biscuits. Definitely a full circle.

I have to say that the cork elements in the Moonstruck collection add the loveliest texture and just a sparkle of gold. I don’t use a lot of cork, and last time Pink Paislee released cork elements I did not get them. I regretted that, so this time I did buy them!

I made a traditional layout about this photo already, and then I also included it here. It is one of my favorites.

Ok, on to the right hand side, which is Week 38. Did you notice in the process video that I kept thinking it was Week 40? It is a miracle that I stamped the date correctly! Ha!

This layout was created using the Timeless Memory Pocket Monthly digital collection available at The Lilypad. I always save my digital elements in Dropbox and bring them into the Project Life App just like a photo.

I think my favorite thing about this week’s layout is how the border color coordinates to well with the Moonstruck elements and the journal cards. Lots of beautiful color here, and I love it all!

The photos I included on this layout were some quick snaps we took on one of our walks around the neighborhood. Our neighborhood is still being completed, so we have construction around us and the landscape changes sometimes. Where we are standing for these photos was the ending of a side street on that day. The next day all that was removed and a through street is being created!

For this filler card I felt like the pattern was bold and so the embellishments should be very minimal. A gold title and simple butterfly is all that is needed.

A little journaling here, and a cat photo of Nico. I love having a place for these random photos that might otherwise just get left on my hard drive.

One more photo of the two of us and this layout is complete.

I am so happy to be able to share these layouts with you, and I am so thankful that you are following along with me on the journey of 2016. See you soon!
