Project Life Oct 22-29, 2012

Here is another week in our life, from 2102, that is.

Sorry about the photos. crooked, glare. dark. but done. 

 This week was right before Halloween, so lots of Halloween preparations.
I love fall, it's my favorite season, and had missed it while living in SoCal. Loved being able to use this Studio AE set to embellish some of the photos, heat embossing with white embossing powder. Caution! If you try this yourself, be prepared that some melting/bubbling will occur on the photo. It's not very obvious in the page protector though.

This week I used up some more of the Madera collection from SEI. Thought it was the perfect colors and images for these fall photos.

Using lots of stamps again this week. Was excited to used one of Ali Edwards' newest Studio AE sets to make the "dinner favorite" circle embellishment. Used Lilibee alpha stickers with the stamp.

Been loving the new alpha stickers by Kelly Purkey at Simon Says Stamp! Love the size and font. She has made these in more colors. I need to get them in all of them! They were used in the Trunk or treat title as well as last game.

Been trying to be better about adding my ephemera to my pages. I collect all these pieces but forget about them when I putting the pages together since I do them so much after the fact. Usually they get stuck in an added page protector in the middle if I do... Happy to use the packaging from these craft kits my MIL got the kids.

Struggling on the journaling front. I have all kinds of things I wrote about each day and I am having trouble figuring out what to add and what not to add. As you see for this week I have a couple of heavy journaling spots on this week. Think I need to do a Week in Review card to add the little bits of the week that don't appear in the photos. Even then, seems like I have too much to say! Better than not enough, I guess. 

Thanks for looking!

Project Life week October 15-21 2012

It has been a busy summer, with little time to scrapbook. My kids have had me completely occupied and I have been busy taking photos and keeping up with the journaling to catch up eventually! 

Sorry I haven't posted in forever! Life is just been happening here!

I did attend an awesome 12-hour crop, Mickey Mania 3, with Just Kitting, but I was poorly organized and didn't manage to get much Project Life related things accomplished.

Here is the week of October 15-21. Sorry about the photos. Had an awful glare going on the plastics, but thought better this than nothing... I have a few weeks before this that are 95% done, but I am missing a couple of photos I was going to add so I will try to remember to share when they are done.

This week's products focused on an old S.E.I collection called Madera, I believe. I used to be a member of club SEI, where every other month (in the beginning it was every month!) I would get a selection of scrapbook products in the mail usually from one of their new collections. I still have a TON of their awesome product left over that I need to either use or lose. 
My mom had just given me this moustache washi tape that was perfect for Madeline's cheesy moustache.

This week I printed off the Cardinal's playoff schedule and who won what game for the first journaling card and embellished with a Studio AE stamp. The fourth journaling card, I heat embossed another Studio AE stamp from last fall with white embossing powder. The first photo has a stamped "treats" sentiment from a Technique Tuesday stamp set by Ali Edwards as well. Used the Amy Tangerine roller stamp to add "noteworthy" to the tab.

For this half of the layout, I used alpha stickers from the Sn@p collection, as well as Studio Calico alpha stamps. Used this set from Kelly Purkey for the "Please Note" sentiment. The leaves come from this set by Technique Tuesday/ Ali Edwards.
