Project Life – Week 19, Week 20 and Week 21

Here’s my long overdue Project Life update. I got behind when I went on a 1-week business trip, followed by my mom’s 2-week visit, but the sad fact is that even after that, I’ve kept getting more behind. But I do have hopes that my life will miraculously settle down (I’m having an awfully busy summer at work :-() and I can get caught up. I am not giving up, that’s for sure! Anyway, here are the last three weeks I completed.

I was not all that inspired by Week 19, but hey, it’s one more week documented. 🙂

Project Life - Week 19

I did not have much to document this week.. I was home alone until the weekend.

Project Life - Week 19

I guess it’s the color scheme that stumped me.. I do like how the right side turned out though, with the journaling cards – it must be a record, I used three cards from the Project Life Clementine kit on one page! 😉 Seriously, I never use the kit anymore, but I was delighted to dig up three cards that matched my color scheme so well!

I love the patterned paper on the top right. And I think the birthday card I made looks pretty cool too! 🙂

But let’s move on. Week 20 was a good week for me. I was home alone, but I had a major achievement. I LOVE love love love how this week turned out. How is it that my hybrid intensive pages are almost my favorite ones? 🙂

Project Life - Week 20

It’s pretty obvious that I put together this spread after getting my new desk – the Silhouette-cut elements give it away easily! 🙂

Bright colors, cut outs, stamps, and glitter? No wonder I love how this week turned out! 😉

Project Life - Week 20

Here are some details. I used distress ink for the stamping (it was the only color I had that matched the color scheme..) so the details aren’t 100% clear, but I like the look anyway.

I covered the star left over from the cut out with glitter. 🙂

I tried using a strip of paper in my DYMO. It totally worked! 😉 I love the look!

Project Life - Week 20

A nice mix of stamps and printed digi elements. This spread turned out to be really thick, thanks to those flowers I added to it! My album is getting quite thick already – it will soon be time to switch to a new binder!

And here comes Week 21. I tried something new this week too (once again, thanks to the new craft space): embossing! 🙂 I love it!!

Project Life - Week 21 

Do not fear, it’s not that I need to remind myself of my name… 😉 That one you see there was a name tag and I had to block out some personal details in these photos. 🙂

Project Life - Week 21 

This week is packed with photos and journaling! It made me think whether I am documenting too much.. I like to think that one day I will care about having all these details recorded, but I am not sure..

Project Life - Week 21 

That picture up there in the top right corner was taken with my iPhone from the plane – the quality is awful in this picture of a printed iPhone photo, but in person it looks quite cool, with the moon framed by the plane’s wing. But let’s move on to some details! Here are the embossing stamps I made.

Project Life - Week 21 

DH and I were on opposite sides of the country this week, so I had the idea of documenting it using a map of the US and our initials. This was my first experiment with embossing, and it was a go! 🙂 So I added more embossed details throughout the spread.

I was almost done with this week – I was missing only the bottom left pocket on the right page – when I decided to use a stencil mask and spray paint to create a background. It turned out pretty cute, albeit a bit too white. But then, as I was about to clean out the stencil, I noticed there was a lot of paint on the stencil, so I used it as a stamp on another piece of cardstock. Bingo! 🙂 This reflection had just the right amount of red to balance my page.

Project Life - Week 21 

The journaling on it is kind of hard to read though… and once again, too many words!

I included several instagram photos from DH. I love the look with the paper strip down the middle.
