ProjectLife: photobomb

This week: We went to the Rodeo. We went to the museum as usual. We hung around the house a lot, playing games and being silly. I actually recorded a few funny things the kids said and did. Nothing special or out of the ordinary really, but a good week.

Page One: I used a few more Studio Calico kit cards here. I added quite a bit of text to photos too.  So much fun, but it can be time consuming.  I just love looking at fonts and take way too long to decide.  
Here is what I used: bemio (photo bomb), haymaker (zebras), ribbon (favorite), and pacifico (pony rides).  These are all free fonts too.

I punched out this card last week and wanted to leave it open so the 'window' would show through.  I added the text to this instagram in Picasa. I love those SC wood veneer words too.  The pack is totally 50% off right now and I stocked up (even though I don't care for the typewriters-if you want some message me)!

 Another SC PL kit card to record Avi's game winning joke.  I misted the wood arrow and dropped a little black mist on the card as well.  I created the polaroid frame next to it with my silhouette.  Yes, it is based on a stamp, but the text was quite easy to reproduce myself.  I layered blue star, and teal dot washi under it.

I have loved this Geralyn ampersand card for a long time.  I felt like my spread needed a lot of extra color this week so I finally found a home for it.  I added the title with some Snap stickers, a very good match.  And, yeah, my picky eater/underweight baby totally ate a bug. Gross.

I pasted a little chevron ribbon under the photo of Avinash for a little added color contrast.  Honestly, I have trouble using my ribbon and want to find more places to use it.  Next to it, the banner under spring is cut from SC patterned paper, I stamped on hello and added a few candy dots to it.

Page Two: I used a design D page.  I had quite a few vertical photos so I figured it was worth the extra struggle that always comes with this type.  And yes, this side was a struggle, can you tell?  It still feels so flat to me. Nandini looks so grumpy in that cookie me photo, but she really was loving it!  Sigh.  So serious.

This picture of Nandini is kinda funky, her face is hidden in a sun flare.  I added a new Amy Tangerine sticker to it, love the watercolor effect it has.

I stamped hello evening (stamp by Ali Edwards) onto cardstock and glued it to this photo.  It still feels so incredible when they play together.  I love how AliE uses her stamps, I surrounded mine with stars like she did on a layout for CHA.  I like the bold design of the stamp, but they are very patchy when used with dye ink.  I ditched that circle and tried again with chalk ink, much better results. 

 Let me know if you have any questions. Linked up with The Mom Creative for Project Life Tuesday. The PL kits I am using are the Seafoam kit and Clementine kit, with multi-pack page protectors, and grid journaling cards.  I haven't used them yet, but I just downloaded and printed out the Holiday Collection too.  I love the textures on the cards and there are a lot of designs that can be used non-seasonally as well.  (No affiliate, I just like them!)

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. Also, please include a link to your projects below so we can check them out too!  
PS. Check out this washi tape poll I created and let me know what you think! This is a new app, still being beta tested. Personally I think the photos need to be bigger.


  1. Great pages.
    I think the pics on the poll need to be bigger too

  2. Looks like a fun week! Love all of the bright colors! The poll is still loading (and has been for quite some time)...

  3. Awesome pages! Love all the titles and lettering you add to the photos. :)

  4. Poll didnt load for me, love all the stamping and lettering you added. And like how you punched the hearts

    1. Sorry about the poll guys! They have been apparently been having some problems with IE.

  5. Love the layering. That zebra carousel photo is excellent!

  6. I love all of your text and letter stickers. You always use so many embellishments. I love to see how and where you use them. So much life in your layouts. Good idea to use a stamp and turn it into a sticker of sorts. And I love that ampersand card - so colorful! You picked the right time to use it. It looks great.

  7. Love all your embellies, great PL pages :)


Thank you for your comment!
