Project Life Tuesday - Week 37

The Mom CreativeWelcome to Project Life Tuesday!  The catching up continues.  My goal is to try to be a month or less behind by the time 2012 actually ends, so I'm really glad to be making some gradual progress.  My book is finished up to October 20th, so I should have plenty to share with you over the next few weeks. 

Is anyone else stalking Becky Higgins' blog to see when the Seafoam or Olive kits are going to land?  I'm going with Seafoam for 2013 and I am really looking forward to getting it in my hot little hands.

If you're looking for inspiration on what others are doing with their Project Life, you can check out my board on Pinterest and be sure to link up on The Mom Creative!

So, here is my Week 37:


This week, I had one insert (Design F) in addition to the two Design A pages.  I usually like to do things in as much of chronological order as possible, but the layout about the baby shower you see on the right just really didn't work to include in the previous week, so it got popped in here.  It will probably annoy me for the rest of my life every time I look at my book, but such is life.  :)


This is a great method to do with a Design F.  I use one big journaling card and number stickers to write all the journaling for every photo in a single place.  I included one 4x6 photo at the top, but just sliced it in half to make it take up two spots.  Then it was just all iPhone photos and Instagrams for the rest!  The Instagrams I printed at 3x3 and mounted them on some Cobalt cardstock to allow them to fit in the pockets.


Probably my favorite photo from this insert.  I just love this shot my cousin-in-law got of Aunt Maribeth and me laughing like crazy.  If you want to read the whole story behind this photo, you can get the scoop here.  


Thus concluded the out of order insert side A.

Here's the left Design A page:


Lots of iPhone photos, Instagrams, washi tape, and Martha Stewart labels here.  Nothing fancy.  Have I mentioned lately how much I love the fact that Project Life doesn't require anything "fancy" to be fantastic?!  Because I do.  Love that fact, that is.

Moving along.


This is the flip side of the Design F.  As you can see, I took a totally different approach then the baby shower page, but it still works!  I actually cut three 4x6 photos right down the middle to make 'em fit in this bad boy.  I also used a little Bubble Frame experiment in that left hand 3x4 slot and a couple Thickers for the "3!"



And here is the right Design A:


I swear, that whole purple theme showed up on this page completely by accident.  I love it when that happens.  :)

Woohoo!!  I'm this close to being able to share October with you!  Yay for getting caught up!
