It's week eight and I love this project.
click the photos to enlarge for a somewhat clearer image.
Week of : February 18 - February 24.
What happened this week? Paul, in Spain, visited Cadiz for the pre-lent festival. My mom came down to help get the old house in order to move out. The packers came. I turned 28. I signed Escrow paperwork twice - once in our house with a notary and once in San Diego at the Escrow offices.
Anything special in the spread? I added a small 5x7 insert to hold the journaling from my birthday post. Instead of just printing on cardstock, I printed on lightly patterned paper by Amy Tangerine. The number paperclips are from Studio Calico.
Techniques this week : Nothing special. I was SUPER low on photos this week... that's what happens when life gets crazy, so there is a lot of text instead. Not ideal but it is what it is.
Overall thoughts : I created this entire spread on Wednesday, a week and half after the week had ended because of the move. It was hard for me to go back and play catch up; it's not the way I like to work on this project. BUT, it's good practice. I know life will get crazy with the addition of the little one and catch up might be the name of the game for awhile. :)
Ratio of iPhone photos to "real camera" photos : 5 to 1.Ratio of photos taken by Elise to photos taken by Paul : 4 to 2.
Supplies used : Seafoam core kit, Studio Calico Project Life kit (hello 3x4 card), Paislee Press heart transparency, Freckled Fawn wood chip, birthday cards, Amy Tangerine patterned paper (kraft), Studio Calico patterned paper (dot), Evalicious flair badge, Studio Calico number paper clips, Martha Stewart & Avery labels.
Tools used : Design A pocket pages, 5x7 photo 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.
