Project Life Tuesday - Week 7

The Mom CreativeWelcome to Project Life Tuesday!

I started using the Project Life system in 2010, so this will be my fourth full year!   

I am not a "fancy scrapbooker."  There are so many people out there doing some very impressive things with their Project Life albums that involve a combination of digital skills, pretty embellishments, and other fancy-pants techniques.  I'm not one of those.  I keep it pretty simple so that I know I can keep up and avoid becoming overwhelmed.  To me, it's more important to keep the memories than it is to make them look like they came out of a magazine.  I'm totally fine with it if my layouts feature more iPhone photos than DSLR shots and Instagram is my friend.

I do like to have fun with it though.  :)

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!

Here we are with Week 7.  I am using the Seafoam kit for 2013, but I recently picked up the Jade kit when it was featured on HSN.  I'm still debated how I would like to use it.  I've considered using Seafoam up to July for the first half of 2013 and then switching to Jade, but I'm not totally sold on that idea.  I know Jessica is planning to incorporate Jade right into her Seafoam album, but I'm not sure if I want to do that either.  Ackk!!!  :)

The left page is one of my favorites in my whole 2013 album so far.  These black and white photos of the boys are just so.....THEM.  The "oh brother" sticker was buried in my stash along with the "lucky" rub-on.  They worked so nicely with this layout!

The inserts for this week hold a couple cards we received and the valentines Isaiah made for me.  I used a vertical 5x7 page protector and an 8.5 x 11.

Right Page:  As you can see, there is a lot of goofiness happening on the right hand page!

The template for that moustache card can be found here:

And then there is this card:

I cut out a 4x6 piece of Seafoam cardstock and then chopped this photo strip in half before adhering it.  I sliced a plain 3x4 grid card to size and used a strip of washi tape.  How fun is this??!!

I hope you have a wonderful day and that you'll be back to visit again next week for another round of Project Life Tuesday!
