Project Life

Wow. This blog has definitely neglected for a while. I remember scrapbooking before having kids and not really having many pictures to scrapbook besides the cats and me and my husband. I would look at all my friends scrapping all these cute pictures of their kids and long for the days when I finally had kids so I had better pictures to scrap. And then I had kids, and while it's true that you now have all these pictures to scrap, you don't have nearly as much time! I still try to get together with my friends about once a month or so, but there is a lot of socializing and eating that goes on during these days, and not nearly as much scrapping! Last year I decided to give Project Life a try and I am hooked. I still have a couple months from last year to finish the journaling for, but I am determined to stay up to date on 2014. I have a new organization system as far as how I store pictures on my computer until I'm ready to print and a paper template that allows me to sketch out each week. Both of these are  really helping and I am all caught up on journaling through yesterday even though I don't have the pictures from the last 2 weeks yet. Anyway, I decided to give some Project Life challenges a try. Hope you enjoy!

This week, the challenge was to either dry or wet emboss. I chose to get out an embossing folder and my Big Shot and use it on the arrow filler card.
For this week, the challenge was  to use vellum. It's hard to see, but I put a vellum heart sticker on the picture of my oldest working on a heart craft and then I put a vellum arrow sticker on the bottom right picture of him doing a science experiment. I also made a shaker pouch using cardstock, vellum, sequins, and red thread.
 This week I used my heart punch and put them on my filler card. I used pop dots to give some of them dimension.


  1. You have done such a wonderful job so far. I love all your PL layouts. You are doing all the challenges perfectly. Thanks for joining us over at SOUS.

  2. Wow Great job. Great pages. Thanks for playing at SOUS.

  3. Love all the journaling you are including, thanks for linking us up at SOUS!

  4. I am totally understanding you! When I do get together with friends we pretty much never get a thing done! LOL! But I can see why PL would be so appealing because you really can get a bit more done, more photos in and take a bit less time. That's always good!
    I love that you were able to combine some of our challenges! Do me a fav though and when you do your text can you link back to SOUS? That way when folks visit you they know where you had been, etc! =)

    So very glad to have came by and hope to see much more of you!

    Warmly, Leah
