2012 Project Life | Week 3

I was looking at my Project Life title page and kept thinking something was missing.  Then it hit me.  Noodle wasn’t on there!  So I just had to right my enormous wrong by adding him to my title page.  :) I can't believe I forgot my little Noodle!

I continue to print out my photos at home.  I really like the instant gratification of having them immediately available every week.  And I like the control I have regarding the photo output.  This week's pages took me a lot longer to make, because of the extra pages and amount of photos I had.

My main two-page spread for the week. 

Left-hand page.  I continued using my kraft paper week numbers that I designed myself and cut out with my Silhouette SD machine, and drew stitching around the number with my Uni-ball Signo white pen.  On the lower left photo, I wrote directly on the photo with my Sharpie. I love that I got to see my two best friends in the same week.

Something new this week is that I have a "week in review" journal card, using "Press Cards No. 1" by Paislee Press. 

On the left journal card, I printed the "today" frame from Ali Edwards' "Hello Life Boxes" straight onto a Becky Higgins Project Life 3x4 grid journal card.  Then I stamped the eating utencils and "" stamp by Unity onto the card.  On the right journal card, I printed my computer-typed journaling straight onto a journal card from the Clementine Core Kit.  For more info on printing onto Project Life journal cards,  my video tutorial on how to print onto Project Life journal cards is here

The right-hand page has more photos of our trip to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.  I just hand-wrote some additional journaling.  Made a mistake and crossed a word out and wrote over it.  Not worried about being a perfectionist here.

I had two extra inserts this week.  The first is a 8.5x11 page protector from Staples.  I cut out the playbill from the "Cats" musical that we went to and adhered the front page and the list of songs onto white cardstock. 

On the back of the white cardstock I adhered out tickets, two photos, and some journaling that I printed out onto cardstock.

The second insert is all about our trip to the Safari Park.  I used a We R Memory Keepers Three 4x6 One 6x12 page protector.  On the 6x12 side, I folded the 12x18 Safari Park map and stuck it in there.

I did this journaling on the computer in Photoshop first, then printed it out on one of the 4x6 folded journal cards from the Clementine Core Kit.  The giraffe is a Photoshop shape from "Vector African Animals" set.

This week's pages were challenging since there was so much to do. I have to keep reminding myself to keep it simple and get it done.
