Project Life Week 8

Happy Monday everyone !

I am here with you today sharing my Project Life Week 8.

Back in February I announced on Social Media that I have been chosen to be on the Kellie Stamps Creative Team. I am super excited to get to work with her amazing digital and physical stamps, as I have been a fan for years.

Today I want to share my first project that I did for the Creative Team.  The digital stamp set I used here is called AM to PM.

I decided to keep the journaling cards fairly neutral by using a lot of white since my pictures had a wide range of colors in them.

Most of the Journaling cards that I used for this one is from the new Becky Higgins Currently kit. Here is a look at the title card.

I stamped the Evidence box from a Studio Calico kit  stamp and added a wooden veneer below.

The left side of the spread.

Here are a couple of close ups. Included are journaling cards and pictures.

I added a few details about week 8 and also added the dates to the bottom of the card since I did not add them in on the title card. The photo is of our chips and salsa that we enjoyed on Tuesday. I added a digital stamp onto the photo before printing.

The weather was amazing that week. There may or may not been a few family/sibling water fights !

Katelyn has been reading the Harry Potter series on her own and now she is on the last and final book, #7. I wanted to make sure we document this time in her life.

The Currently edition has some amazing cards and this currently reading card was perfect for the story I wanted to tell. I added the #7 and a star and called it good.

As I mentioned before the weather was great all week, Maddie captured this great photo of Noah hanging his head out the window on the way home from school one day. I added some of the digital stamps.

I have been hoarding this lightning bolt rub on for a while now waiting for a Harry Potter project. It turned out perfect, simple and done.

One last look at the left side of the spread. I have slowly been finding things to add/replace around our home lately. I have been eyeing these large metal marquee letters for months and months. They finally came on super sale and I snatched them up and put them up that night in the kitchen.

Let's move on to the right side.

My lavender plants in the front yard are blooming. They are so pretty and one of my favorite parts of Spring.

I added a digital stamp to the photo before printing and then added the wood veneer on top.

All the kids wanted to do was hang out outside after school. They played their version of school, had water fights, rode their bikes, and had snack time in the front yard.

I used the digital box from the AM to PM set and added in the "all day everyday" brush. I added it to the journaling card here.

I also used another digital brush on the photo of Maddie helping daddy mow the lawn for the first time this year. The YES arrow is also from the kit, I printed it out onto cardstock and cut it out.

Wednesdays are for . . .

I punched out the circle weekday digital brush that I printed out on cardstock. I wanted a little bit more embellishments onto my photo and so I added a small strip of washi tape and some stars.

I really loved this daily routine brush from the set. I added it to the top of the journaling card and added in some tidbits about my routine.

On Saturday we went out as a family and did some errands. I had Maddie snap a photo of me searching paint colors for our Master bedroom.

This Currently journaling card is again from the Currently edition. I added in some digital brushes and called it good.

*The journaling came from a instagram post that I wrote up that day while I waited for the kids to get out of school. I always love to write these little tidbits down and Instagram is the perfect place to get them documented.

That wraps up week 8 for me today. I have a few weeks to catch up on thus far this year and to finish up 2015. I am always happy to have another week in the album and am looking forward to creating and sharing more.

Take care everyone !
