Project Life 2015: Week 14, part one

Still running behind, but I feel like the catching up thing is going to happen soon, especially since I've taken ZERO photos this week so far.  I may have my first one spread week in quite a while!  Not sure if that is actually a good thing... but given that it makes me feel less behind, I'll go with it being a good thing :-)

Here's the first half of week 14...

For this spread, I used some of the new Quick Pockets by Just Jaimee and Lynnette W.  They have open spots for photos, but if you slip a piece of grid paper in there, they become journaling cards!  I also "borrowed" a few cards from the Ready to Go template sets.  They're grouped together on the templates so they were easy to drag over onto my pages I was putting together.  Just a little resizing and they were ready to go!

Project Life 2015: The rest of week 13

I finally finished up the second half of week 13.  One of my favorite things about the Storyteller collections by Just Jaimee is all of the add-ons that are released throughout the month.  They make the kit all new again!  The stacked pocket cards were just what I needed to finish the week up.  I wanted to use Storyteller Raine for a somewhat consistent look to the week, but I needed new pieces to play with.  And I definitely needed more journal card choices, since I spread the photos over four pages, I ended up with lots of gaps to fill.

Project Life 2015: Week 13, part one

I've hit my first slump of the year.  I have one half of week 13 done, but not the second half.  I have everything laid out, but I just can't pull it together.  I also have at least three 2010 pages in progress that I can't get finished for some reason either.  (And I'm not even going to go into the the other 3 extra spreads I'm completely ignoring for my 2015 book... sigh.)

So, instead I'll celebrate what I do have finished!  Here's the first half of week 13...

I do need to get my act together though... I've decided to print three times this year, so I'm just about a month away from ordering my first book of the year!  I had originally planned to print January through the end of school, summer break and then start of school through the end of December.  But with the added snow/cold weather days, Alex is out of school a good week after Clara and Clara goes back to school nearly two weeks before Alex does in the fall.  It made it hard to nail down exactly where to split the books, so I'm doing (roughly) thirds instead.

Here are the supplies I used (links on pinterest)....

Dance Album: Northwestern Game

I got motivated the other day to work on Clara's dance album again. This time I tackled (see what I did there?) the photos of the girls performing before the Northwestern football game.

At one time the journaling card had more writing on it, but I ended up erasing it.  I have to remember that this is Clara's album, not mine.  So, I kept it to just the facts.

Project Life 2015: Week 12

Some weeks I don't have a lot of photos and some weeks I have a whole bunch of random photos.  This was a bunch of random photos week.  And then, after I finished this, I found that a mom from Clara's school posted a bunch of great photos from the band field trip for us to download.  Looks like I'll probably be adding an insert to this week so I can include those photos as well.  I have a feeling that is going to be another year of big project life books... or possibly three (or more books).  I'm having a hard time leaving out photos this year.

Here's my week 12...

Project Life 2010: Disneyland

I got motivated at the end of last week to work on my Disney pages from 2010.  There were two factors involved in this... 1) Sahlin Studio was having a sale on her Project Mouse kits and 2) Clara and I have been working on our plans for our trip to Disneyland this summer.  It was really hard to decide which kits to buy since there is such a great selection in the Project Mouse line.  I ended up starting with the first basics set.

Here are my pages...

Of course the kit worked perfectly with these photos!  I think I'm going to need to pick up a few more before Clara and I go on our trip.

Oh... there's still one more two page spread from this trip... just dragging my feet on finishing up the journaling.

Project Life 2015: Week 11

Project life... it takes a village!

I took a look at my photos after finishing my pages and realized just how many people contributed to them!  They're all phone photos, but they came from my phone, Jeff's phone, Clara's phone, Clara's friend's mom's phone and Clara's teacher's phone!

I wasn't sure how everything was going to come together, but I think this is one my favorite weeks so far this year!  I love the mix of photos!
