Project Life 2012 Week 7

This one is my first biggest spread or spreads ( 1 spread = 1 page protectors/layouts).  3 to be exact! Couldn’t just settle for a few photos to tell the story.  Simple embellishing using an old kit by cocoa daisy and some american crafts patterned paper I’ve been wanting to use for awhile.  I finally found a reason to hit it up in here.  Combo of handwritten & typed up journaling. Love that I can do both or one or the other.  I love this project.  

Highlights:  selene | maiya especially her 1st time flying by herself to seattle | valentine’s day cards | a day in the life joint

Layout 1:  
one of the photos I stapled on top of one of the slots.  I had accidentally sealed the opening from week 6 with some embellie, so next plan…staple it.  I had done this for some journaling last week’s so why not this week too.  Doodled a border onto the journaling card. Adhered a metal accent on top of the page protector and slapped on a sticker border from the cocoa daisy kit.

Layout 2:  
I really like this design E protector.  The big pockets enabled me to slip in 2 handmade valentine’s day cards and be a part of this spread.  The hearts patterned paper was on the dot for this layout especially for the occasion.  The ampersand filler card is by molly porter.  it’s a free download.  I printed it on plain white cardstock that I had already pre-cut to 3 x4.  She’s gotta few other ones too including 4 x 6 cards.  I cut a ribbon up from the kit and stapled it to the left hearts patterned paper by jillibean.

Layout 3:  
no photos in this one just a journaling card that I doodled a frame on. Used the acrylic stamp in the kit on the lettered patterned paper, slipped into the pocket and added the bare chipboard letters on top.  Used the same stamp using gold ink and made some subtle lines on the american crafts travel patterned paper.  You can’t see it in the photos here but I like the effect it gave.  A lil peek of curiosity.  

Layout 4:
photos of maiya heading to seattle for the holiday weekend.  She flew out by herself for the 1st time.  She wasn’t nervous at all.   

I had to adhere each photo onto cardstock or adhered some patterned papers to the ends of them because they printed out to 3 x5 instead of 4 x6.  Lots of  labels used for journaling in this layout.  How about that smash stamp huh?  Love that thing.  It’s got little phrases and next to them is the date side of it.  

Layout 5:  
a continuation of her flight out. 

man I love the ac pp! so cool I included the collection name with the photo of her airline ticket.  I got a shot of her actually boarding the plane.  I had quite a bit of negative space in this one so I used it…used a metallic silver sharpie marker, did some journaling, doodled border and arrows.  I also doodled a circle of her boarding. I love that marker! It gives a subtle but cool look to it.  

Layout 6:
I did a ‘day in the life’ series for 2.18.12.  

I wanted to use a different format so I chose the design B page protector.  Cut up some pp & placed them in the top 3 slots.  2 of them I placed photos in and the middle I used to title up the layout.  Letter & chipboard letter stickers to help out title it up. A little bit of doodling on the chipboard letters.  Wrote a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 series of what went on that day and corresponded each photo using number chipboards that maiya had given me a long time ago.  It was from some school art supply package she had way back in the day.  Finally am using it.  I’ll prob use it all up for this project alone.  

The final day of the 19th was one photo of selene really close & personal.  Added a date label and simple journaling on a label.  Then touched that up with a doodled border with my metallic silver marker.

And there you have it…week 7! 

whew! that was long! but it was a busy week.
