Project Life Tuesday - Week 35

The Mom Creative

Welcome to Project Life Tuesday!  Every week I share the 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.

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!

Although I am typically use a hybrid style combining digital and traditional elements, project "Get Caught Up on My Album" has officially begun, which is why you see a LOT more digital stuff here than I usually do.  In the name of git 'er done, my mouse and I have been hard at work in Photoshop Elements.

If you follow along over on The Mom Creative, you have already seen Week 35 because I shared it over there when I guest posted last week.  But it might still be new for some of you, so away we go!

Left Page: 

Products Used - Soccer Theme PackKraft Edition, Summer Theme Pack, Design A digital template,
The Kraft Edition is one of my favorite Project Life kits.  I love the vibrant colors, the fun designs, and the versatility the kit provides.  I did change the colors of several elements on this layout and I added some drop shadows to some of my photos and text, but that's really the extent of the digital maneuvers I used.

Confession time - Every single photo on the page is from my iPhone.  I love having it handy to snap shots throughout the day and my favorite app for editing those photos is Pic Tap Go.

Right Page:

For the soccer card in the top left corner, I used a 4x6 journal card from the Soccer Kit, but I changed the color of the journaling section from the stark white it is designed with to the cream color of the Kraft Edition.  That is one advantage to digital - if you don't like the color of something....you can just change it!  

Zoo Insert:  Products used - Summer Theme Pack, Design A digital template

When I print this out, this layout will actually go back to back in a single Design A page in the middle of Week 35, but it was easiest to show it to you this way for the sake of BlogWorld. For this insert about our trip to the Milwaukee County Zoo, I kept things very simple.  My 4x6 spots are mostly just straight-up photos and the 3x4 spots are dominated by journaling.  

Side A:

I suppose it's kind of weird to be featuring the Summer Theme Pack when it's getting colder by the minute outside, but it's nice to relive those beautiful days!

Side B:

There you have it. I'm holding out some hope that I will get a little time to start working on Week 36 this week, but who know if it will actually happen.  Regardless, I still love using Project Life as my memory keeping system and I have no plan to stop any time soon! :)
