Project Life Tuesday - Week 28

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 28 - Seafoam, Jade, and the Seasons mini kit working in combination here this week.

What do you do when you screw up the date stamp on the first card of the week?  You slap on a Martha Stewart label from STAPLES and start over, that's what.

The "speleo cave" card is a digital card and the blue summer card is from the Seasons mini kit.

The "Gone Fishing" card was also all digital - I used two Instagram photos and a 4x6 card from the Jade Kit.

Thickers are wonderful things.

This week was when Cory Monteith died suddenly and it really shocked me and left me bummed out.  As a loyal fan of Glee, I wanted to document it in my album.  I used a digital card from the Jade Kit along with a screen shot I found on Instagram.

For this one, I used a 4x6 grid card and some washi tape.

Ohmigosh I am so incredibly tired, but I finished typing this post before midnight so I'm calling it a win.  I'm about to go crash into my comfy bed.  Hope Tuesday is good to ya.  By the time you are reading this, my Micah John will be celebrating his 4th birthday!!  Woot!
