Project LIfe Dec 10-16, 2012

Here is my Project Life layout for December 10-16, 2012.

This weeks products were mainly from SEI Christmas Mint collection. This week also contains an 8.5x11 insert to hold my 12 photos from 12-12-12. It was something I thought to do that is a bit like a day in the life, but I limited myself to only including 12 photos.

Here is another photo of the layout with the insert flipped to the other side.

Because I also did a December Daily album, I tried to focus on non-Christmas event things or things that didn't get captured in that album.

First journaling card is from Mambi that I stamped with a Technique Tueday stamp from Ali Edwards.
Second card I made from the Netflix packaging and added a label sticker to say what movie it was that we watched.
Third card ended up being a bit hard to read after printing the journaling over the snowflakes, but I just went with it.

After using the peppermint candy flair, I have found myself using more flair. I have been hesitant to use them because of the extra bulk, but they are just so fun to use! This Cheers flair/badge comes from Kelly Purkey at Simon Says Stamp.

The Good job speech bubble and Yes are both Studio Calico stamps. 

For this insert I used label stamps to created journaling spots for all of the photos. I also used chipboard pieces from the Christmas Mint collection from SEI, as well as many stamps from Technique Tuesday, most from the Studio AE sets.

This used more of the same with an addition of the camera stamp from Amy Tangerine.

Loved how this insert turned out!

Hoping to share some more layouts with you soon! Some from 2013!
 I am also trying to put in a pretty big photo order into Persnickety soon. Over 9 months worth of PL photos! Trying to stay organized so I don't miss any or order duplicates. Wish me luck!

Project Life Dec. 3-9, 2012

Here is my Project Life layout for December 3-9, 2012.

For this week the products are mostly from SEI's Holly Lane collection. Still on a mission to use up my stash!

The Adventure stamp is one of Kelly Purkey's stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp. Most of the white letter stickers are from Basic Grey.

I did use the peppermint candy card from an Elle's studio Christmas kit from 2011. It came with matching flair from the same kit. 

Another layout in the books! 3 more and 2012 is done!

Project Life November 26 - December 2, 2012

Finally finishing up 2012! Here is the first week of December.

For this week I decided to use up some of my Christmas stash. Pulled out an old S.E.I kit using the Christmas Mint collection.

Got brave and journaled right on the photo of the soccer ball. After seeing Elise Blaha Cripe use the technique, I thought this would be a good photo to try it out on. Also used some washi tape and a stamp from Kelly Purkey.

The rest of this layout uses only SEI products with the exception of the Kelly Purkey alpha stickers that say "watched". Love these stickers. Perfect amount of vowels and letters in general. Want them in every color now!

On this side, I used a Cosmo Cricket sentiment sticker with a punched heart layered underneath for the first card. The second uses a Technique Tuesday stamped banner.

The tag journaling card used a stamp from Kelly Purkey.

The next two journaling cards and the last photo have more stamps from Technique Tuesday from Ali Edwards.

Used some letter stickers from Basic Grey to say happy birthday.

Only 3 more weeks left to complete in 2012!

Project Life November 19-25, 2013

Here is the layout for November 19-25.

Added a 6x6 insert for this week. Had too many stories to tell this week and wanted some breathing room. 

Used mainly the cards from the Cobalt Core Kit. Mixed in some leaf patterned paper from my stash and some cards from Studio Calico's Mark's and Co. Project Life Kit and other bits from my stash. 

Used an Amy Tangerine rub-on for this photo.

Using a lot of computer journaling to maximize how much I can say on each card.

Used a Dear Lizzy flair button on the yellow star Studio Calico card.  Used some Sn@p alpha stickers on top of the Studio Calico heart journaling card.

For the insert I used Kelly Purkey alphas from Simon Says Stamp for the title. 

On the other side of the insert, I created a weekly dinner menu list. Used Basic Grey alphas for the title and Ali Edwards stamps for the days of the week. The 3D turkey sticker was in my stash.

Here is the right page without the insert in the way. 

Used some Technique Tuesday stamps by Ali Edwards for most of the sentiments. The "thankful" and "pleased as pie to be with you" came from a Kelly Purkey stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. 

Still struggling on what to include every week. Still lots of words and stories. Glad to have them all there.

Hope to share another layout soon!
