Project Life Tuesday - Week 19

The Mom Creative

  Welcome 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 used to be a very traditional scrapbooker who would spend hours on a single layout to document one or two photos.  Thanks to Project Life, I have become much more practical and I'm able to record a multitude more memories.

I don't use a lot of fancy tricks or complicated techniques.  I would define my style as "hybrid scrapbooking" - a combination of simple digital and a few old school techniques that creates a unique product that reflects our eclectic life. 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.

And it's a whole lot of fun.

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 19: Combo of Seafoam and Jade kits this week.

One of the things that I like about the Seafoam kit is that it is very simple and can be used in conjunction with pretty much every other kit, including Jade.  What kind of bugs me about Seafoam is that it is a bit....blah.  Washi tape to the rescue!  I threw some yellow chevron washi tape on that journal card and BOOM.  Love it.  Pretty simple left page today here, people!

The right page is all photos, no journaling.  Sometimes the photos just speak for themselves, you know?

The "Brothers" card at the top was made digitally, using the Jade kit and some arrow brushes.

Happy photos, one stamp.  Done.

Have a wonderful Tuesday and I hope you'll come back next week to see how I incorporate Mother's Day, a toad, and zombies into a single Project Life layout.  It's going to be epic.
