Project Life Week 15

Hey everybody !

Summer is in full swing around here and I love it. We are hitting the road tomorrow to go visit my parents for a couple weeks. Before I go I wanted to update the blog with another Project Life week. I also have a process video up on my Youtube channel.

This week was Spring Break and then Easter. We also had a visit from my parents. So it was a busy week. This is what the first side looks like.

I used the April rubber piece from Studio Calico for my title card. It needed some color so I added the star underneath and then added my dates. (Yes, the dates are wrong and are now fixed).

The first card is journaling card. Most of these cards are from Studio Calico. I added the digital word Spring from Ali Edwards onto the card and added my journaling underneath. This one talks about a fun day we had with friends.

This photo is when we went to lunch with friends.

This week I did some yard work, planting flowers and did some garden prep. I took a photo of my pretty flowers. The card next to it had a photo of the kids swinging with their Grandpa. I added some stamping on the bottom of the card. It really didn't need any journaling.

We made these twinkie bunny cars this week for easter. I added a digital word from the Drive kit from Ali Edwards and some journaling.

One last photo from the left side of my spread. I am prepping the garden for some veggies that we are going to plant. I added a digital stamp from Ali Edwards.

Here is what the right side looks like. Lots of great Spring colors.

My mom always brings treats for the kids. This time she brought them these giant egg sugar cookies. I added some journaling on the photo and a digital word yum from the Eat Story kit from Ali Edwards.

I chose this mustardy Destiny card because it matches some colors in the photos.

We took a family photo after church and I added a small one of the kids onto this card. The next filler card was so fun to put together. I kept it simple with some stamping, and some word strips.

Here are some photos. The first one is of Katelyn and Grandpa. The next one is of Noah at the pool.

Alright everybody ! This is week 15. I need to go and finish packing up for our trip. Until next time.

Swim PL Insert | Colorcast Designs

Hey everybody !

I am back for another blog post today. I am so sorry that it has been so long. Summer's are always
super crazy.

Today I have a summery insert to share with you. These photos are from last year when we spent the late afternoon and evening in the pool. I used a lot of embellishment pieces from Color Cast Designs and created this insert for my DT assignment. Here is a look of the first side.

Typically when I add an insert into my album I will use a pocket page that it is shorter than 12x12. This one is from Becky Higgins. It has a row of 3x4's and then a row of 4x4's. I thought that it would be a fun change and a little bit of a challenge.

This first journaling card is from Studio Calico. I added that wood circle from Color Cast Designs and also that blue arrow from Simple Stories. I added some journaling to the bottom of the card about how Maddie was pretending she was a whale.  ( The photo below is of her blowing water out of her whale hole)

Next up is this filler card. This one kind of acts as a title card. I cut up that fun circle/bubble card and added a circle in the middle. The colors on this card were perfect for my photos. In the middle of the circle I added that blue acrylic piece from Color Cast Designs.

One the bottom row I have a simple filler card and a photo.

Let's move on to the other side of the insert.

This top photo is of Katelyn trying to SURF across the pool on her pool floatie. Next to the photo is a filler card from Studio Calico.

The next row I decided that I wanted to have a photo that went all the way across both pockets. I cropped it to 4x7 in photoshop and printed it out. In the left hand corner I added some embellishments. I used another wood circle from Color Cast Designs. All of the pieces from Color Cast Designs that I have used are from the same set. It is called Sunkissed. You can find it here.

The last row has a journaling card and another photo.

I cut down this card and added some journaling about us swimming in the pool. Also about how the kids have been watching American Ninja Warrior. They have come up with obstacles using the pool and the pool floaties.  I used a circle punch to cut up this photo of Katelyn and Patrick in the pool.

I loved putting this insert together. Thanks for coming everybody. I do want to say that I do have a Process Video up on my Youtube channel. So check that out if your interested.
