Project Life – Week 8, Week 9 and Week 10

I knew I would fall behind with my Project Life album the week of my thesis proposal, and indeed it happened. After Week 7, I didn’t do any pages until last week. Week 9 was the actual week of my proposal, but I had no time to do anything the week leading to it. So I found myself with 3 weeks to catch up, plus the current week. I am happy to report I have finished three weeks (8-10) two weeks ago. I didn’t have time to share pictures before now unfortunately, since it has been a super stressful week. But here is Week 8:

Project Life 2012 - Week 8

The Sunday of Week 8 was the Oscars ceremony, so I used the movie theme for the whole week. I went with a black, white and red color scheme. Here’s a look at the individual pages:

I was alone for most of the week, and didn’t have much to document other than a snow storm and some crafty shopping ;), but I still found out I had plenty of photos to fit in this spread. 🙂

I didn’t want to bother covering up the journaling (sorry… seriously pressed for time here!) so there are no closeups of Week 8. But that’s OK, because it means we can move along directly to Week 9… and Week 9 is a big favorite of mine! 😉

I went with products from the March BYOC at The Lilypad, and that never disappoints! 🙂 Here’s a closer look to the pages:

At the bottom left, top right and bottom right I used postcards/business cards from a few restaurants we went to.

I also had lots of fun using my new Studio Calico stamps this week. Here are some details:

I used digi stuff, stamps, and alphas. Fun!

I stuffed all kinds of memorabilia in this pocket! It is very dimensional, and I attached everything with washi tape. Fun!

More alpha stamps and stamps mixed in with digi cards.

Gosh, these colors make me so happy! All right, let’s move on to week 10 now. I made an insert using a 6″x12″ pocket since I had some extra photos this week. Here’s what the full spread looks like, with the insert:

I scanned a coupon from Starbucks (bottom left) since I loved how it looked. 🙂

Insert (front and back):

I used a business card from the restaurant (blocked out, sorry). I did lots of stitching this week, which was fun since I hadn’t done any for a few weeks! For the inserts, I made 3 6″x4″ cards for each side, and stitched them together.

And right:

(again, I blocked out the business cards in these photos)

In week 10 DH and I went away for 2 days (he was on a short business trip, and I went along), but it was a getaway full of drama… I tripped in my laptop’s power cord and the computer came crashing down from the bed to the floor… Ack! But I was incredibly lucky. Not only didn’t the laptop suffer significant damage (only the screen wasn’t working anymore), but my DH was able to open it up and fix it, so it is working just as before! Phew! But let me tell you, I passed several minutes of pure terror!
