Project Life Week 37

Happy Monday everybody !

I am here with you today to share my Project Life Week 37. I worked on it last week and finished it up yesterday. I went with more of a simple approach this time and I am totally okay with that. It is done, documented and now in the album. All in all, I LOVE the stories that are in this week.

Here is a look at both pages.

I combined the August and September Studio Calico kits for most of this week.

I added the blue star and the letters to spell out SEPT to the title card from the Studio Calico kit. I also added the dates and a few enamel dots also from the kit.

I seem to spend a lot of time typing these days. Or at least at the computer. I am not complaining at all, I love it. I decided to take a photo to remember.

I added an Ali Edwards brush to the top of the keyboard. You can find it here in her digital shop.

Here is a look at a journaling card about making some extra pages for a PL creative team assignment. Also a photo of Noah writing his spelling words on the patio.

The yellow journaling card is from one of the SC kits. I added a few embellishments and a fun title to the card. This is one of my favorite things to do on my journaling cards. It adds that little bit of personal touch and also helps to remember what that particular story is all about.

Speaking of stories. Week 37, which was last week, I decided to have all the kids write their spelling words out on the patio with chalk for a little change of scenery. It worked and the kids loved it.

I have been binge watching season 8 ( I am almost done) of Supernatural on Netflix while I scrapbook, fold laundry, ect. It has been fun and I am trying to get caught up so I can watch the new season. Which is season 11 I believe.

I found a photo from online and printed it out.

A fun photo of Noah spelling his words out.

Let's move on to the second page. I did not take a ton of photos in week 37. So I used a Design F page protector and sliced off the last row.

The top photo was taken one night while we were outside enjoying the cooler temperatures. I layered two different digital brushes from the AM/PM set from Ali Edwards. You can find it here.  I used the PM Routine card from Ali Edwards Story Kit, the AM/PM kit.

I journaled about our newly PM routine as it has been evolving. It involves ice cream cones, a round of tag, swimming, swinging on the swing set, and catching the sunsets together.

Here are a few close ups.

One last close up.

Katelyn has been asking for an ice cream cone every night after dinner. I took a bunch of photos of Katelyn with her ice cream cone but this one was my favorite. A non typical non smiling photo.

The last two journaling card are both from the SC PL kits. I added a few embellishments to them and a few stamps and called it good.

One of them talks about not feeling the excitement of the new school season. The other one has a few High Fives from the week.

That is a wrap for week 37. Have a great day everyone !

I love your PL posts! I get a ton of inspiration from them!

I was just wondering where you bought the "Made this" card on the left? It's awesome.
Also, the sunset picture and the boy in the water picture on the right...what kind of paper did you use for those pictures? I love how it looks.

Hi Jennifer.

Thanks so very much for your comments. It made my day !

Here are some answers to your questions. The Made this card is from an older Studio Calico Project Life kit. They have a digital version available. Its called Sandlot by LifeLovePaper. Here is the link

As far as the smaller photos. I printed them on semi gloss photo paper on my home printer. If you are asking about the white borders, I cropped them in photoshop to have a border. I hope that makes sense. If you ever have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask. I am happy to help. Have a great day.

As always I love your pages! I know you did a blog post about how you get the typing on your journaling cards, so I won't ask you to explain it all again. Can you just direct me to that post? Thanks!

I hope you're going to be on the Simple Stories design team again (or even another team) because your work is very inspiring!

You are so sweet Helen !! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Yes I have a tutorial from long ago, at least it seems like long ago. I think I need to do another one. Anyways, you can find it by clicking on the tutorial link on the right side of my blog. I know there are soooooo many tutorials and youtube videos out there about this same topic. So you can always search those out as well. I hope that helps.

I sure hope I continue to be on the Simple Stories DT again. I love their products.

Thanks for stopping by. And of course, if you need anything else all you need to do is ask. Happy scrapping !
