Welcome back! Sharing my second layout for Studio Calico's Project Life® kit
. The photos were taken in May, and as you can see, only two days of the week were featured in the spread. Sometimes I take a lot of one event, and that's ok! I love how this layout came together very quickly with the cards from the Sandlot kit + printables from Life Love Paper
You can see my gallery on Studio Calico here.
First, the full two page left and right sided spread. Just doing what I do…Collect photos, filler cards, journaling cards and a little sprinkling of embellishments (the cute gold heart brad and the pink work strip stickers.) Continuing with my Maggie quote and week in review card as well to round out the stories.
The left side. On the currently card, I just added one of the printables from Life Love Paper, cut it out and added it to a white 3x4 card, then I hand wrote in some currently facts. (tip: really happy I had written down some of the regular going-on's in my calendar that week. Made it very easy to fill in the journaling this week. Note to self: even just bits and pieces of the week written down in my calendar makes it easy to do past "fill in the gaps" weeks.)
Closer look at the title card. Simply stamping the dates with a roller date stamp works well for me. (tip: I stamp the second date first to make sure I have room for both.)
I printed out the "made this" card and stamped the boxes with the stamp from the Repeat add on to make a recipe card. I just looked up the recipe on Pinterest and added it here. The "made by" is from the stamp from the main kit.
Right side. Documenting our trip to the library. The cards were just too perfect for this page! Really loved it. (Wishing I had photographed or at least written down what books we checked out, but at least I got some pics and am happy with how it turned out. Thank you, mobile phone!)
I added the "this is my today" from the stamp set from the Repeat add on
as well. Great stamp set for adding bits like this to Project Life.
So there it is! Another simple spread. These fill the core of my album, and if I want to and have time, I can always add photos from my big camera as inserts. But for me, at least I have something and even better…something that I love!
