Week 8 & 9 Project Life Layouts!

Well, Week 8 was a slow week and Week 9 was busier with a few more pics! I need to remember to be a little more creative on weeks that we don't have a lot of extra things going on and use these weeks to maybe add a list or pictures that the kids drew, etc. I think I need to print off a list of 'extras' so I can easily pull from these when I feel like I need some 'fresh' ideas ;)

I printed off cards from the 'Dazzle' mini kit in the PL iPhone app when I printed my pics for Week 8, as well as using some patterned paper I had in my stash. I love the bright floral designs on these cards! I really like being able to collage the pictures before printing them. I used the Rhonna Designs app to add digi text and images to my pics after collaging them in PL.

I also used some stickers - I recently picked up a sheet of Maggie Holmes stickers, which I love!! and I used stamps from Pretty Cute Stamps! The 'I <3 this!' stamp is embossed with black embossing powder right on top of my photo. I wasn't sure if it would work, but it did perfectly!

The journalling card on the top left of the second page of week 8 is made with a digital PL card and the Rhonna Designs app to add the middle part. I love how it turned out!

Here's how the 2 page spread looks in the album:

For Week 9 I used a lot of cards printed from the Peace, Love and Sunshine Value Kit in the PL app - I love the bright colours in this kit! I also used papers from the Echo Park Capture Life 12x12 scrapbooking kit! This has to be one of my favourite paper packs; and again I used some of the Maggie Holmes stickers.

On the second page I featured my hubby's 45th birthday!! woo hoo! and I grouped a few special pics and some journalling into the top half of the page - adding some digital text from the Rhonna Designs app on top of some of the pics.

On the bottom half I grouped some random pics of the girls - I love the two of them snuggling up while watching the spiders on TV!

I grouped my food pics together in the first 2 columns of this page and added an arrow (from Pretty Cute Stamps!) under my 'scrapbook goodie' pic, which points to the journalling below it.

This whole page was dedicated to our weekend outing to the Home & Garden Show with my oldest daughter and son-in-law. I again used papers and stickers from the Capture Life collection, a journalling card from PL and stamps from Pretty Cute Stamps.

Here are the four pages as they are in my scrapbook for Week 9:

  2. Wow these pages are fantastic! I really need to get back to scrapping! Sometimes it's the everyday routine things that we want to capture and remember. I once took pics of my son having a temper tantrum, well it is him after all! LOL! Thanks for playing in our neighborhood this week!
