Project Life Catch Up - Week 17!

I'm finally feeling a little more settled with school starting back up and getting back into a routine! I found I really didn't have a lot of time over the summer to do Project Life, so I'm happy to get back to it now! I've printed off my pics for each week and now I can get them into my album.

Today I'm posting on the Scrapendipity Way Of Life Blog and wanted to share some easy ways to add some extra details to your journaling cards using some paper ephemera! I used some fun die cuts from Maggie Holmes and My Mind's Eye and layered them on my Project Life cards along with some stamps to add some fun accents. This cool stitching look and arrow on the card on the top right is a stamp from Pretty Cute Stamps - Awesome Arrows!

My Week 17 card was made in the Rhonna Designs App - I just love this app! and I printed it with my photos.

I used more preprinted die cuts and stamping on the second page. I find it easiest to cluster the embellishments together to get them to work on the cards!

On my third page I used some fun Cricut cuts from the Create A Critter cartridge and my Explore. I actually used the Write feature to write in my words, then added some Distress Inks and splatters with Dylusions Sprays. I used some Dylusions stamps to add some fun leaves to the dino cards.
On the bottom half of this page I used stamps from the Superheroes and Super Sentiments from Pretty Cute Stamps! I first cut the outlines using the Explore and coordinating SVG files and then coloured them in with Prismacolor Markers. Let me tell you, this makes it soooo much easier!

As I looked through my album I loved seeing all the journaling I had added and all the fun elements on my pages. Even though I'm a little behind I know this is something I do want to continue to do, and my kids love looking through the pages. That's what makes it all worthwhile!

Thanks for joining me today! I hope you enjoyed your Monday if you had a long weekend like we did here, and happy, crafty wishes for the rest of the week!
