As you can tell by the dates I have gotten slightly behind in my Project Life album. We had multiple rounds of colds and ear infections in our family the last few weeks (myself included!). I reminded myself this week that there is no “time table” when it comes to Project Life. I see so many people post on message boards that they have fallen behind and feel very discouraged. My hope today is to share with you that life happens and some days you can not get it all done, and that’s okay. “Being caught up” is really a subjective term. Don’t let what other people are doing, or where they are at in their Project Life album discourage you and your progress. There are no rules here.
This was a fun week to document because it was Super Bowl week. I live in Indianapolis (which was the host city for the Super Bowl), so life here was very exciting and electric. You can see on my title page how I even called it “Super Week”.
In addition to many of Elle’s Studio Handmade Layers and Collected items, I used Lily Bee Design’s Buttercup line, and Dear Lizzy’s Neapolitan line. Both of these collections look great with Elle’s Studio tags! I included an 8.5 x 11 layout I made for Lily Bee in this week’s project life. I’ve never included a layout before, but I love how the smaller sized layout works with a Project Life spread.
In addition to the layout, I also included one of my son’s school papers, prescription stubs, ticket stubs, chopstick packaging, and the front page of the Indianapolis Star on Super Bowl Sunday.
In case you didn’t see, we added Dear Lizzy’s new roller stamp to our shop this week! I had the chance to play with it and LOVED how perfectly it works with our tags!! It’s a great stamp for Project Life.
One of my favorite Elle’s Studio items that I use EVERY week in my Project Life are the Daily 3×4 Tags (seen here as the “On This Day” tag). The pack contains a tag for every day of the week plus three bonus tags. It never fails, I always include one of these for a photo or journaling in each week’s Project Life!
