Project Life 2013 – Week 4

Week 4 is done, and Week 5 is in the works. I find myself working on my Project Life in spurts. Towards the end of a week, I put together the first half of the spread rather quickly, and then I do the second page during the following week. This week was easy to put together.

The theme for this week is red + green – inspired by 2 washi tapes. I used the Studio Calico Front Row Project Life kit (that’s where the red washi tape comes from; the green one is from Etsy seller In the Clear), plus a few other bits and pieces (see below for details). I also used some 4×6 grid cards by Becky Higgins (some cut down to 4×4 to fit in the square pockets).

This week the photo sleeves I used are all by We R  Memory Keepers: the 9 4″x4″ square slots for the left page, and the 6″x4″ and 4″x4″ combination for the right page. I love to use those square pockets for instagram photos – either left full pocket, or made smaller to add journaling and embellishments.

In the blocked out part I have one 4×4 pocket about some local events, and another 4×4 pocket in memory of a friend of my parents who recently passed away.

This is the card that inspired the colors for this week. I cut out the 4 from a lovely Studio Calico paper (Temple from the Darling Dear collection). It’s backed on yellow cardstock (from Week 3) and I covered the edges with washi tape. The letters are from Mini Market alpha sticky keys by October Afternoon.

This card is from the 9 To 5 Miscellany (October Afternoon). The green bubble is from an old Studio Calico sticky pad. I used the Smash date stamp.

I kept embellishing to a minimum this week. Washi and some stitching goes a long way! 🙂

I used a printable from the Day by Day class at Studio Salico as a journaling spot on this card. The photo collage template is by Designs by Lili.
