Project Life Tuesday - Week 21

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!

I got WILD for this particular week and went ALL DIGITAL, which is something brand new for me.  It was a fun little experiment, but I'm pretty convinced I am not a digital gal at my heart.

This is all the Honey kit.  I 100% copied the design of my title card from Sara.  She showed me a couple tips on how to create drop shadows on the text and I had to play around with it a bit. 

News stories like this are never easy to hear about, especially when there are folks I know who might be affected.  Thankfully, all my OK blogger buddies were safe and sound.  I used a screen shot and a Honey kit journaling card to create this.

Just another day around here with my Micah.  He is always a valuable resource for a good story.

Kindergarten Open House, a tree climber, a superkid, and a super annoying incident where my kid locked me out of my own bathroom.

Overall, I love how bright and cheery the Honey kit is!  It's great for using with my rambunctious kiddos.  I hope you have a wonderful week and we'll see you back again next time!
