Project Life Tuesday - Week 27

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 27:  I used the Jade kit, Seafoam Kit, and a few items from the Holidays Mini Kit this week.

A couple pops of color on mostly neutral backgrounds on this left page.  Plus a screen shot from the movie poster we took the kids to see on Sunday afternoon - they loved it!

In retrospect, I wish I would have made that Instagram collage a little bigger.  Oh well!

Nothing like being en route to the zoo when every "Uh Oh" light on your console suddenly lights up.  Not a fun morning, but it certainly made it into the Project Life album!

4th of July Insert (Design A):

Ack!  Sorry about the terrible glare on this page.

And then the right page.  I incorporated some digital elements over here - the NINE care and the collage in the bottom right corner.

I really would love to get a couple days where I have nothing to do and I can just spend my whole day working on Project Life.  I'm falling so behind! 

See you next week!
