I am months behind in my Project Life album...yep, months. With the pregnancy, the move and now the holidays, I can barely find the time to scrap. But, that's what I love about Project Life. It's such a quick, easy and fun way to preserve your memories. And, no matter how far behind I fall, I still can jump right back into the project easily at any point because I write a weekly journal entry on my blog to include and organize my photos each week as well! So, no matter if it's the next week or the next year before I get around to scrapping a Project Life spread, I don't forget anything and the project remains stress free. I also turn to easy-to-use products that seem to "scrap themselves," such as all the awesome Elle's Studio products found in the Frosted Designs store. Their products are not only fabulous for Project Life but traditional layouts and other paper crafting projects as well!
Here is my Week 14 2014 spread using my Project Life core kit and some fun goodies from the Frosted Designs store. I'm sure you can tell from this spread that I love wood veneers. They are the perfect relatively flat embellishment for pocket pages and I don't think I have yet to scrap a Project Life spread without them. This spread is very photo heavy, so I relied on simple embellishing as to not make things too busy; not only are the wood veneers great for this purpose, but die-cuts as well.
Here's a closer look at the left side of the page. I gotta say, I really love the mini placemats from Jillibean Soup because they make great filler cards. Love this sentiment one here that I backed with light green cardstock and accented with orange sequins.
Now here's a better look at the right side. Both the photo of Liam and my mother-in-law vacuuming and the photo of Liam with my sister-in-law in the lower left are on Elle's Studio die-cuts. I totally love how the Everyday Moments die-cuts blend seamlessly with my Jade Edition Core Kit!
Finally, here are a couple close-ups of my spread...
This is my last post as a member of the Frosted Designs Design Team. I am stepping down in the new year to focus on Baby #2 coming in the Spring of 2015. I have loved being a part of this team and am looking forward to seeing what Barb and the rest of these talented ladies have in store for us all in the new year!
