Project Life Tuesday - Week 25

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 25: Fathers day, a trip to the zoo and a bridal shower!

The first page is mostly about Father's Day and our trip to the zoo on that day.  I also created a digital card about where he will be going on his upcoming trip to China.

Jumping over to the next page, I used another Design A for all the photos from a bridal shower in the family.  I used the Jade kit for most of this layout, both physical and digital.  There is a little bit of Seafoam sprinkled in here as well.

 Loving the chevron on this page!

And then the final couple pages!

I love, love, LOVE Evan's family!!!

I used a little bit of the digital Honey kit on the last page in addition to the Jade cards.

I loved this green dress I got from Stitch Fix this week, so I saved the sticker from the packaging and stapled the styling card right to a 6x4 grid card.

I'm back to playing catch up again because...well, because I just am.  I have successfully broken into the second album of 2013 now, so at least I'm in the right half of the year!  :)

Have a wonderful Tuesday and we'll see you back again next time!
