Project Life Week 3

I have my week 3 done and wanted to share. Staying on schedule and I even managed to get my week 39 done from last year !! I am trying to find a little extra time here and there before the move so that I can stay current on this year and try to finish up last year. That way it won't be so daunting when I move because that alone is going to set me back a lot.

The first page. Valentine's day wreath on the front door, an LA work day for P, and a few tidbits.

Title card. This week I used the great month brush from Ali E. and then added the date.

Added this brush and added the word "this" from another brush. I love to mix it up. So fun.

Used the free layout template from paislee press. Find them here.  I added some text.

Also added the great circle compass. I found it awhile ago on this great website called This is a wonderful website full of free digital scrapbooking products. You can find the compass HERE. Added a white circle behind it in photoshop and it turned out great. Then I added the white letters LA for L.A. where P went for work.

P eating lunch.

Used a filler journaling card and then I used the blue card from an old Studio Calico kit.

The second card I also used an old folder card from Studio Calico. Added the tag for journaling. I just put glue on the outside of the travel folder card so that I could slip the tag inside.

The journey word is a Heidi Swapp rub on and the letters are from Fancy Pants. 

The first card I used a filler card from the Seafoam kit. Added a frame from my stash. But have you seen those new Studio Calico polariod type of frames yet ? They came out just this past CHA. I can't wait to get some, they will be perfect for PL.

I added my photo and the brush. Ohh ! Gotta have my Moose Tracks. Yum.

The next card is a freebie from Cathy Z.  You can find it in this blog post from Cathy.  I added some digital paper from the Seafoam kit. I did great at CVS that day. 3 packs of pullups, 4 packs of stayfree, and 2 dawn bottles all for $10.34 with tax.  I added the extreme couponing title because my kids always say that we are extreme couponers, I think they have seen the show to many times. Ha Ha. But really, who doesn't love to save money !

The second page.  Homework, the house, and football.

Katelyn took this photo of us. Didn't turn out so well, but I still love it. I am determined to get me in some more of this book. We shall see.

Added the date with the 17. Then printed my journaling onto cardstock and then added it to the photo.

This is what our house looks like right now. This is our staircase.

I resized on of the Seafoam journaling cards to fit in the space that I wanted. Added this brush to the bottom and also added the tiny house from Amy Tangerine digitals. Reduced the opacity to make it a little see through. When I was done with the journaling card I printed it out, cut it out and then added it to the photo.

I love this shot of Katelyn. The kids are always excited to get to "in" the house. I added a Martha Stewart doilie and the sticker and camera.

Found some shots from the San Fransisco 49er game this past Sunday. They won and we are going to the super bowl !! EEEK !

Used another one of these free 4x6 templates. 

Added some more photos from the house. Added some washi tape and this cute house sticker from Dear Lizzy.

The second card is from the new Echo Park Today's Story. There is a whole sheet of wonderful journaling cards. The yellow is a perfect match !

Added the house plans sticker from the same Dear Lizzy collection, can't think of the name of it right now, but it's fairly new. Journaling about my feelings about our home building process so far. 

The first card is one of the journaling cards from the Seafoam kit. A brush on the bottom and then the arrow sticker. Maddie had friends over to play.

The second card is also a journaling card from Seafoam.  Talking about the football game.

Week 3 is done !! Yeah !! Have a great weekend everybody.

 **P.S. - Make sure you don't miss my Tutorial on Changing colors on brushes, journaling cards, ect. If you are interested. It is the previous post behind this one.**

** P.P.S. I am going to get a blog post started about how I have been organizing my digital brushes, templates, ect. I have had questions about that as well. I just need to do one last thing and then I can get started on it. So look for that hopefully in the next few weeks. **

You amaze me with how you are able to print onto just about any tag or anything?! I don't get how you get it all so perfect? :)

Thanks Libby !

Heather - Thank you for your nice comments. I can see it is all about the planning. I just plan out my journaling cards, print my journaling on them, and embellish. Sometimes the embellishments go on first to see how much room I will have. And the last thing, I wouldn't be able to do it without the digital version and my ruler. You can check out my tutorial on the subject. If your interested I could possibly do a blog post about how I put my journaling cards together. Have a great day !
