2012 Project Life | Week 19

I’m taking today and tomorrow off work, so my 5-day weekend begun!  It began last night with dinner at a Mexican restaurant with an old friend.  So happy to get my weekend started!  Although, first thing this morning I had a dentist appointment, ick.  Upside is my teeth are doing great.  Another upside is I treated myself to Starbucks afterwards.  I’m not a frequent Starbucks visitor, so it really was a treat.  And I got some beauty products at Target.  I’m behind in blogging about my everyday life again.  It’s kind of what happens when you work all day and you have social plans in the evenings.  But that’s a good thing.  :) Oh and I will be blogging about the Amy Tan class I went to at Paper Tales soon!

Project Life Week 19 was an experiment in “Speed Scrap” Project Life.  It was Monday night and I was worried about being behind about two weeks in Project Life. I wanted to get one week done quickly.  So I came up with the idea of timing myself from start to finish, and trying to get it done as fast as I can, while maintaining my style.  From start to finish, it took me 2 hours and 58 minutes, so we’ll round off to 3 hours.  (This includes picking out photos and printing them out, but that part only took 39 minutes.) I guess that’s as fast as I can put a two-page Project Life spread together!  I even used some pre-stamped and pre-sewn journal cards.  But I guess 3 hours isn’t too bad. And since I was able to get a week of Project Life done in 3 hours on a week night after work, I feel more confident and less stressed about getting behind. :)

Week 19

Left side

This week’s title page came from the Clementine Core Kit.  I added some stamping, a strip fo cameras from a AC Amy Tangerine paper, and some Thickers alpha stickers.  (Supplies are linked at the end of the post.)

On NSD I happen to get my huge box of scrappy supplies from Stop And Scrap.  Good timing!  Background paper from Echo Park’s Note To Self 6x6 paper pad

The left is just a filler card from the Clementine core kit, but I love the colors of the dots!  The right is a grid card stamped with a cassette tape stamp that I hand-carved myself.

AVENGERS assemble!  LOVED this movie.  Like, super-duper loved it.  I was so hyped about it after seeing Ironman, Thor, and Captain America, but it exceeded my expectations even.

I caught a couple of photos of Noodle that were so funny.  For this slot I just printed both photos on a 4x6 photo paper, and stapled a print & cut ticket that I made myself.  Then I wrote on it with a Slick Writer.  Super-easy and time-saving.

We finally got our Canon 28mm F/1.8 lens and we love it!  I had already sewn the border on this journal card a few weeks ago in my journal card mass-production session.  So I just adhered the photos, stuck a Martha Stewart file label and October Afternoon badge on there and it’s done! 

The “too cool” whale stamp was in the $1 bin at Michaels.  Getting my Studio Calico box is one of the best days of the month!

Lunch with my favorite friend Meera.  I love her to pieces.  I used some Jenni Bowlin Chewing gum ink on the Studio Calico wood veneer people and adhered onto the page with glue dots.

A huge sweet surprise happy mail from Jenn Smith Sloane

Some more pre-assembled journal cards.

Any comments or questions?  I love to hear from you!  :D
