Paper Issues | Project Life Summer Fun Album


Hey everyone!  I hope your summer is going well.  I’m on the Paper Issues blog today, showing you a few pages from my Summer Fun album!  Every year Todd and I make a “Summer Fun List” of all the things we want to enjoy during summer.  The longer days allow us to do fun things after work, even on week nights!  I started this album to capture all the fun things we are doing this summer.

I’m using a Project Life 6x8 album.  There are a ton of other 6x8 albums available in the market, including some Simple Stories ones in the Paper Issues store.  My title page was created using a page from the Simple Stories Summer Vibes collection.  I used the chipboard frames, chipboard stickers, and diecuts. 

On the back of the front page, I printed our summer fun list that I had in Google docs, shared with Todd.  I simply copied and pasted into a 6x8 document and printed it out, before embellishing the other side of the page.


The first page was created using the 3x4 and 4x6 Project Life Photo Pocket Pages 6x8 Design 3.  I used Elle’s Studio’s Let’s Eat collection, including the cute wood veneer and label, and This + That paper.



I love documenting the food we eat, so this Elle’s Studio Let’s Eat collection was right up my alley! 


This page was about our first time eating a lobster roll at Lobster West.  I used Let’s Eat Bits & Pieces, and wood veneers again. 


I typed up my journaling, printed it out on regular printer paper, and adhered it to my background.


We went to a new-to-us coffee house and it was awesome.  The best lattes are the ones where no sugar is needed!  So smooth!  I used Elle’s Studio Let’s Eat Best Ever and Yum papers, and journaling tags.




Of course, summer fun includes hanging out with friends and watching the NBA Finals, especially if you’re a Cleveland Cavaliers fan like Todd is!

This is my last project for Paper Issues, my design team term ends at the end of July.  Make sure you use my discount code before then, because I don’t think it would be valid after I’m no longer part of the team.  Thanks for your support for the past 11 months, for Paper Issues and for using my discount code, and also for stopping by to look at my projects!  I really appreciate it!  :)
