Project Life 2013 – Week 3

Four weeks down – I cannot believe that January is almost over already! Here’s my Week 3.

Project Life 2013 - Week 3

I went with a bright color scheme this week. 🙂 It was inspired by the big 3 card from the Studio Calico Block Party Project Life kit, and that gorgeous floral paper from the Basic Grey Fiction collection.

We had some pretty snow this week and the large vertical pockets of the Design D photo page were perfect to showcase two photos I took. I added touches of yellow throughout the spread, and the floral washi tape by My Mind’s Eye matched the floral paper. The 3, HELLO and dotted card on the left page are all from the Studio Calico PL kit, as well as the yellow star stickers and several stamps. The yellow tag and the X sticker are from Studio Calico.

For the right page, I used a photo sleeve page by We R Memory Keepers. OK, here come the detailed images.

The photo in the top left pocket was taken with my Canon 50 mm f/1.4 lens – I rarely put it on my camera (my go to lens is the 28 mm f/1.8, which is the perfect size for my crop sensor Rebel XSi) but I took it out to take some pictures of the big fluffy snowflakes that day, and I’m so glad I did!! It’s such a gorgeous lens.
I used the Smash date stamp as usual, and wrote “week” on the title card using a Sharpie poster paint marker. Journaling pens: Micron 03 and American Crafts slick writer. The yellow arrow is from an old Studio Calico sticky pad, and I attached it with the tiny attacher.

I did the title on the left with this handy type rubber stamp set and the number 3 from the Basic Grey micro mono alpha stickers. The arrow and the flair are from Basic Grey Fact+Fiction. I bought the flair set thinking I’d never use this particular badge, since I love math, but it worked out well to go with this story! 🙂

I loved these two cards from the Studio Calico PL kit, so I kept them simple and accented them with a stamp also from the kit, and an adorable little sticker from Amy Tan – I love this set! I stayed home most of this week, so that explains the @home card. 🙂

I stamped a heart from the Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go stamps on a little piece left over from one of the sticky arrows I used. The washi tape is by My Mind’s Eye.

This pretty calendar was included in the Studio Calico PL kit, and I trimmed it down to a square to match my pocket size. I stamped the days with a stamp from the Day by Day class kit at Studio Calico and Colorbox ink. The background cardstock is from LCI Paper.

The camera stamp is from the Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go stamp set – it was my first time using this particular stamp and it stamped so well! I used jet black archival ink by Ranger. The washi tape is by My Mind’s Eye.

For this pair of cards I stamped a stamp from the Studio Calico PL kit onto a little ticket from Basic Grey Fact+Fiction and layered it with some washi tape and an enamel dot by My Mind’s Eye. I don’t usually do a week in review card, but I decided to include one this week to journal about a few random things that didn’t have a photo to go with them.

I cut a bit of Weekdays Glass Tape (Freckled Fawn) to put the day on the photo. The butterfly is from Basic Gray Fact+Fiction. The washi tape is by My Mind’s Eye. As usual, I got to the end of the spread with not pockets left so I condensed the journaling for 3 days on one card. 🙂

And that’s it for this week! 🙂 Week 4 is already in the works – I was on a roll yesterday and I am already over halfway through. 🙂 I love this project! Do you do Project Life? Leave me a comment, I’d love to see your pages!
