Project Life - Birthday Week

This is my project life from last week (all of my posts are a week behind).  I am still working on my week in the life album and am really glad that I started on it early.

{page one} I took lots of pictures on my actual birthday and scattered them throughout. Every room of our house is full of toys.  I used teal airmail washi, teal letters inside a wooden starburst.
We took this photo of the us on our night out.  Love these wooden cameras, misted in yellow. I snapped a picture of that ladybug on our way home from school.  I put it on one of my Art Journaling cards, blue embossed with silver glitter, and added black letters - love this font, it is the perfect size for those looong titles that I love.
We had leftover cake with the babies the day after my friends outing.  I love this top 10 smash journaling pad.  Maybe I should journal more lists.

The trip to Ikea was a definite highlight of the week.  We all had a great time there and we didn't even leave Avinash in the toddler jail playroom. Maybe next time.  Especially since I get free coffee there for joining Ikea Family.  The store map has the best little dotted lines and arrows, so I added some wooden arrows too.  Avi and I fought over the ikea measuring tape and he won.
A playing / almost fighting picture from the bath -  I just stapled one a elle's studio journaling spot

The orange and yellow card is cut from a gap flyer.  I pretty much never go there since everyone's closet is stuffed to the brim but I still get plenty of junkmail from them.  All I needed to add were red letters and brown stickers.

{page two}
I used Design F again and cut up two 8x10s down to 8x6.  I slipped in a few squares of the new Basic Grey In flight paper.  The black letters again, striped pink washi, ormolu flair (my favorite set by far), a Crate button (one down, five million to go) and Amy Tangerine stamps.  I like all the soft colors together, with just a little extra pop from the red heart.  It is a little weird that my lip is cut in half, but I like the overall look.

Happy that I am still getting good use of my own cards, martha labels, and washi tape.  I also really like adding titles to my cards here and there.  Thickers already have so muhc color and dimension that they take the guess work out of embellishing for me. I like doing two page spreads instead of inserts, most of the inserts I started are still sitting half done in my binder.  Let's see how I do next week since I am a little burnt out from picture taking right now.

Linked up with The Mom Creative for Project Life Tuesday. The PL kit I am using is the Clementine kit. Thank you so much to everyone in this wonderful community. I love all the feedback and looking at everything people do each week. It definitely keeps me motivated. And, please, link me up to any of your inspiring pages this week as well in the comments!

  11. Hey nice page! I was just wondering ,I saw that you use a lot of washi tape, I recently did an acid test and it was acidic..does it bother you! I am still on the edge, unable to decide if I should add it to my pages or not! I am talking about brand name washi like MT..I did a blog post. You are welcome to check it out!
