Project Life new week

Here is another week done for Project Life...not sure what week this is? Maybe week 8? Either way it is the week with Valentine's Day in it. I finally got my first Citrus Twist Project Life kit. I didn't use all of it but I definitely used some of it. I really love it. I had also gotten some new things from the Amy Tangerine "Yes Please" line and I am SO in love with it.

You can see that this week it was all about the bright colors. Mainly because I wanted to emphasize 2 things. The crayon art that my daughter made and the yellow tulips from my DH on Valentine's Day. They are one of my favorite flowers and I love that he brought home some white ones for our daughter. What a sweetie!

Here is the left facing page
The doilies and the 3x4 cards came from the Citrus Twist kit and the papers came from the Studio Calico paper pack that was included and from the Amy Tangerine "Yes Dear" line. I've started playing with some collage apps on my iphone and I like how they came out.

Here is the right facing page
On it's own you wouldn't think that these two pages would work together but somehow they do. I think using the red and the yellow on both really brings them together.
I'm officially in love with all things wood veneer and can't seem to get enough.
Thanks for looking!

6x6 square pages for project life "like" album

Here are some samples of pages using the 4 6x6 square page protectors. It's not part of my project life album but part of a travel album that I'm working on. The first one isn't done but I've printed the pictures into 6x6 shape.

Catching up with Project Life

It's been quite a while since I've been on the blog but I've decided to do Project Life this year. Unfortunately I decided after the year had started and spent a few weeks gathering supplies. I bought the Becky Higgins Seafoam and Cherry editions and then did some trading to get parts of Clementine and Olive. To be honest, I haven't used too many of them yet..I seem to really like the cards from Pebbles and some things I've either made myself or downloaded. I also got the Sn@p collection for Christmas and will start getting the Citrus Twist PL kit starting with the February set. I think I really like the shopping the most! (I promise to get better at photographing the layouts!)

Here is my cover page...still need to edit it a little...I copied the "hello 2013" from someone online and I wish I could remember so I could credit them!
Next is really week 3 or 4 of the year but I just called in "January". The color on my "week in review" card is wrong so I will probably re-do that but for now it stays.
My next week has an insert from a chorus/band concert at the school...I'm including both sides of the layout.

My last page (so far) is this current week...I had so many other pages but the Blizzard was really the highlight of the week so it took up the majority of the pages. It kind of shut down the area so some other things never happened. I'm considering adding pages in between the cover page and the first week that I did that includes some generic things about the people in my family to compare it to what things are like at the end of the year...We'll see!
Thanks for looking!!
