It's week two and I love this project.

Week of : January 7 - January 13.
What happened this week?
We were home Monday-Thursday and then drove to San Diego Friday afternoon to house hunt.
Anything special in the spread?
I added a Design H photo pocket page insert this week to hold a few more photos and thoughts from our house hunting trip. I didn't take a lot of photos of the adventure (though many of the houses we saw) so there really wasn't too much to include. The blurred out section is the fact sheet from our favorite place. (Which, by the way - we put in an offer in, but decided NOT to take after they countered and we realized it wasn't just right.)
I used a journaling card from the baby kit on this insert as a 4x6 journaling card. Totally wouldn't know it was from a baby kit, would you? ;)
Techniques this week :
Nothing too special. More writing on photos. More letter stickers on photos. I sewed some fabric from the chair recover project on top of the photo of the chair.
I also tucked a 4x6 file tab card (from an office supply store) into a 4x6 pocket behind a photo to hold the date.
Overall thoughts :
Still really loving the 3x4 journaling cards to tell stories. Love that I am getting more writing in. I have been doing the spreads in just one or two time chunks each week instead of a bit everyday and I think that's contributing to the more unified look.
Ratio of iPhone photos to "real camera" photos : 8 to 2.
Supplies used : Seafoam core kit, Project Life baby edition, Studio Calico Project Life kit (arrow & grid 3x4 cards), the FOR THE LOVE stamp on the chipboard is not for sale, but a small version is here, Ormolu file tab, Paislee Press "fave" digital element, Meredith Tilton Love Light transparency, Amy Tangerine letter stickers, Amy Tangerine house sticker, Paper Source kraft circle sticker, Office Depot paper clips, Evalicious journaling tag & flair badge, Martha Stewart & Avery labels.
Tools used : Design A pocket pages, Design H pocket page, Fiskars corner rounder, Zig Millenium pen, Rotatrim paper trimmer, Office Depot date stamp, staz-on ink. All photos were printed at home on my HP Photosmart 2575 printer on Office Depot semi-gloss photo paper.Project Life is a memory-keeping system created by Becky Higgins. I use photos, text and stuff to document our life weekly. You can see all the posts from 2012 here and 2013 here. Do you have a question about how I am tackling this project? Check here.
