2017 | Week 14


Today I'm sharing week 14. This week was rather typical for us and I love how the photos, words and embellishments came together. I pulled out some super old pieces that I've been hoarding and made them work for me. I used bits from past Story Kits (join the waiting list here), some of Ali's monthly digital kits available  - specifically March and April.


The left side has a simple title card. I love the "oh sweet everyday" card so much that I think I used it again a couple weeks from this one. I pulled out these little gold foil bursts from a past kit (I don't remember which one) and added one to each photo and one to the title card. I'd been hoarding them for so long now, I just wanted to use them. I picked one that fit with each photo, and just put them where they fit.


The right side includes a couple of cut journal cards. I cut the sun please off of one from the April kit and stuck it right on my photo. The "so totally and completely real life" circle was punched from an Ali Edwards card and stitched on top of an OLD Studio Calico card. I don't know where the circle piece came from, possibly a past Story Kit.

This week was one where I felt I could play around with it more, and I loved cutting things up and gluing down pieces. Sometimes with Project Life I get wrapped up in just putting things in pockets and calling it done, but it's fun to embellish once in a while. My favourite photo would have to be the one with my nephew shoving his face in front of his sisters while she yells "HEY!" and those chips on the far right are possibly my new favourite.
