Project Life Tuesday - Week 26

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 26 is the last layout in Volume 1 of the year 2013, so I officially am halfway finished with this year!  Woohoo!!

I'm sorry for how dark these photographs turned out.  The sun did not want to play nice with me this day!  The left page covers a lot of the boys just playing and being kids.  The date card is from my Jade kit and the two digital cards below are from the digital version of the same kit.

Hopping over to the right page, I used a lot more traditional elements.

The photos on this page are very representative of our summer.  S'mores, squirt guns, and shirtless kids eating Popsicles.

For this card below, I used a 4x6 journal card from the Jade kit and then just stuck on an Instagram photo and a strip of washi.

I've got a crazy busy couple of weeks coming up here, so I'm not sure how much time I'll get to sit down with my scrapbook and pound out some work.  Bear with me if Project Life Tuesday gets delayed a time or two coming up here!  Thanks for patience and I truly appreciate you stopping by!
