Lily Bee Design | Project Life Week 31


I blogged at the Lily Bee Design blog on Friday about my latest Project Life pages.  This year I’m taking a more relaxed approach with Project Life.  Which means I probably won’t get around to documenting the whole year, and I tend to skip around.  This is totally okay with me.  I love Project Life for what it is.  It is a joy to look through my photos, pick my favorites and print them out, and work on my album.  Any pages I get done, I’m happy.  :-)

I don’t do weekly Project Life, but this is roughly the Week 31 timeframe.

I don’t use Week # titles in my 2013 album.  Mainly because I don’t do this every week.  Also because I’d rather put a real title or theme in my album with my photos, rather than just say “Week 31”.  I don’t think that in 15 years when I look back on my album, I would care what week # it was in 2013.  For this spread, I decided to give it a "Fun In The Sun" title, because it was all about hanging out outside with friends!

I used a lot of Lily Bee label stickers, chit chat stickers, and circle & tag stickers on my page.  I love adding a circle sticker to a photo, and the label stickers are perfect for Project Life!

I used the July Studio Calico add-on stamp set designed by my friend Lili Niclass to stamp the “Let’s Eat” on my photo, and the “#PROJECTLIFE” on the bottom of the journal card.

I created the pink camera journal card on the left by using a background stamp and inking it up with the impression side up, then laying down my blank journal card and pressing on it.  Then I added two Lily Bee Chit Chat Stickers.

I wrote my journaling about our dinner right on top of a card that I got from the restaurant.  I adhered it to the Lily Bee paper underneath in the 4x6 slot.  I also included our receipt.

Note:  I decided to stop linking to products on my blog for now, mainly because finding links to products takes me a LONG time.  In fact, more than the time it takes to write the blog post itself.  When I came back from my blogging hiatus, I decided that providing product links was one thing that I can cut out of my blog posts to save the amount of time it takes me to blog.  However, I’d be happy to answer any specific product questions if you would like to ask in the comments to this blog post.  :-)


  1. Always love your pages! I've been struggling with PL this year and I think your approach makes sense for me. Who cares what week it is? Document the photos you want and enjoy the process more. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I also use my PL "my way" and it is similar to yours. If I did the weekly, there would be blank weeks. LOL. Your journaling is fun to read as much as looking at your photos and cute titles with embellishments. Now you had me cracking up about Todd's red pants. I could not stop laughing. TFS.

  3. Great spread! I love your style, and that title card is amazing :)

  4. This looks great! I love your PL style. That camera background stamp is so fun and made such a cute card!

  5. Awesome Project Life spread! <3 and I totally love your messy desk. Such vibrant colours. :)

  6. Fun pages, loving all those great little details and food looks YUMMY!

  7. This is amazing, Christine! I always love to look at all the details you add to your pages! Love all the stamps, that camera card is so cute!! :)


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
