It's week twenty-three and I'm playing catch-up while the baby sleeps.
click the photos to enlarge for a somewhat clearer image.
Week of : June 3 - June 9.
What happened this week? It was a quiet, "waiting for baby week." My mom got into town on Friday and we spent the weekend running errands and prepping the house.
Anything special in the spread? I added a 5x7 insert to hold my June to do list. Super simple... I copied the text from the blog post into PSE and printed on a 5x7 piece of cardstock from Paper Source.
The backside of the insert is a postcard from Urbanic that I've been hanging onto for no particular reason. I love when I can find a use for this random stuff I save.
Techniques this week : Nothing special, that pocket with the sequins was sewed shut last week so I knew I'd be working around that. Love "look-through" embellishment pockets.
Overall thoughts : I am pretty sure many of these photos were actually taken during week 24. But things were a blur there as we waited for baby and the last thing I wanted to do was work on this album. Surprisingly, today - it's all I wanted to do. I wanted to start getting some of these photos into the real world. I wanted to play catch-up a bit.
Ratio of iPhone photos to "real camera" photos : 6 to 4.Ratio of photos taken by Elise to photos taken by Paul : all Elise.
Supplies used : Seafoam core kit, Paislee Press calendar card & transparency printable, Kelly Purkey "everything is wonderful" sticker, letter stickers & sequins, red/orange flower card was cut down from a letterpress greeting card I've had forever, Paper Source cardstock.
Tools used : Design A pocket pages, 5x7 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.
