Project Life Tuesday - Week 13

The Mom CreativeWelcome to Project Life Tuesday!  Every week I share photos of a layout I've been working on, either in my family's weekly book or my son's baby book. 

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!

Week 13 - I combined the Jade kit with a couple elements from the digital Honey Kit and just a dash of Seafoam.  Sounds like a recipe.

For the tile card, I used a card from the Jade kit and added some letter stickers and a strip of washi tape.

I love how the collage in the bottom right corner turned out.  It really shows a lot of my favorite moments from a crazy cool playdate!  The grey grid 3x3 card is the only element from the Seafoam kit that I used in this particular week.

And jumping over to the right hand page:

On this page I used the old split a 4x6 photo in half across two spots trick and it worked out nicely!  I just had too many cute shots of Thomas with his crayons not to include them all!

And then there was this little moment.  Too cute not to document.

Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you have a wonderful week!

Did anyone score an autographed Core Kit at Hobby Lobby this weekend?  If so....I'm super-jealous!


  1. As you know from Facebook, I scored a Blush kit. I am still excited today the day after. I love your mix of the kit. I am really enjoying mixing my kits up this year and was so excited when I opened Blush last night and saw how well it will work with Jade & Seafoam. Although I think it's a bit much that I now have THREE CORE KITS in the house. And I plan to purchase the baby kit for my daughter's album, although now I'm thinking I might just see if I can make my other kits work. ~Alissa

    1. That must have been such a thrill to find one!! JEALOUS.

      That is definitely the major difference this year versus previous years of Project Life. When there was just one kit, you didn't get all crazy about mixing it up much, but now that there are so many incredible options....well, it makes is so easy to create an eclectic and unique album, but the temptation to go a little bonkers on Core Kits and other supplies is greater than ever! :)

  2. I LOVE this! Your approach is perfection and I really like that card with the happenings from a day, weather and with the kids etc. I might use that idea too! :)

    1. Thank Nichole! Really, I was just needing to fill an open spot and that seemed to work nicely. :)


Talk to me, Goose.
