I'm very happy to show the week 3 of my Project Life album today!!
I didn't think I'd love the Sea foam Edition as much as I do.
Turquoise is my all time favorite color and I almost never use it in my scrapbooks, but it seems like I really really like it now that I start using it. :)
My beloved small calendar found here: findingnana.com
Here, on the left picture, I wrote directly on my picture.
And for the other 2 pictures I used the orange arrows found in my old clementine kit.
(sorry for the blurry shot!)
Here I stamped my title with some typewriter font from Inkadinkadoo and the ridinghood red ink from SU! I LOVE that color!! I wrote a little story about when school was closed last week. I found, as a Canadian, that it was closed for not much....about 2 inches of snow!!! So as I was building a snowmen with my daughter I was asking her why she thought the school was closed: it was mild, there was not much snow, the streets were nice..... and she answered: "Maybe Mrs. Heath (her teacher) wanted to stay home with Mr. Heath today?!" :)
Here is just a cute shot I love of my two little girls in front of our magnificent forest! :) Sometimes, there's not much to say about a picture. For those times, there are the cute little cards of the kit. :)
This week I used a new size of page protectors. I don't know the model of the page protector, it was part of a kit if I remember well. I bought those last year and never used them!
So on this page I have a 5x7 and 4 4x6.
The 5x7 pocket was perfect to add a card I got in a painting kit I used with Arielle this week. She used the card to mix together blue and yellow paint as she was learning to mix colors.... There's also a small version of the painting she was working on. That makes a GREAT memorabilia!!! I added to the card a small picture (3x4) of Arielle as she was painting. And I added some thoughts about the activity.... I used washi tape, tags, and some Heidi Swapp stickers and rub-ons.
For this 4x6 I used the template that I created for the 3x4 pictures but I didn't trim the pictures. On the white space left between the pictures I wrote down the story with a photo marker. Simple, simple!
Another cute shot.....I decided not to round every corner this year. In fact when I have a white border around the picture, like here, I leave the corners as is.
And in this pocket I taped together two 3x4 cards (with regular tape on the back...no fuss!). On one card I taped a posh-it note I found on my night table. Arielle did this. She wrote the numbers from 1 to 8... To anybody it could look like trash, but to me it's precious!! :)
And on the other card I used the "SEE" that was already on the card to create the I see you phrase with some stamps. I added a little heart from @HeidiSwapp and a small "liked" sticker, also from Heidi Swapp.
The last pocket is filled with a card taped to a 3x4 picture. Some words and that's it for week 3! :)
Here, In my album, right in front of every pages, I have a big envelop where I put a list of ideas I could photograph. I found the list on Becky's blog. That way, if one week I don,t have enough to say or enough photos, I can always add those ideas to my week. :)
And in front of that big pocket I have another page protector which is holding my small calendars that I didn't cut yet. :)
Oh and one last thing! Next to my album, I have my Project Life notebook. Yes, same color as my binder!! ;) It's a Martha Stewart notebook found at Staples. Inside....
Inside, it's not pretty! But it's useful information!!! :)
On each page I wrote the dates and the week number.
And I draw my page (the pockets) and I write more or less what I want to add to my album - photos AND stories!! Sometime, I will write a story directly on a card and add it immediately to my album, but at the end I'll probably have to move it, or maybe even take it out, so I better like to write it in my notebook first. :)
Are you doing Project life too?? Sharing it online? If so, I'd love you to leave me a link so that I can come and see. :)
Have a good one!!!
