2014 Project Life {WEEK 7}

This week I did a 2 page spread because two big things happened and I wanted enough room to showcase both events clearly. Firstly, it was Valentines Day, and secondly, Emily had a 2 night sleepover with her BFF Lily. I took the girls for a fun girls day out to the mall as part of Emily's Valentine's gift.

I decided to use stamping a few times in this spread since I have a few new Amy Tangerine ones that I haven't used yet. I just wanted to add a bunch of cute things to this weeks spread. I hand-wrote the "Love This" on the title card because I didn't know what else to put there! But I like it!

I used more Amy Tangerine stamps at the top of this journal card. LOVE! I used a tag from my Gossamer Blue Feb kit and some red and white twine and tied it to the card for a fun pop on this page. Another secret? I often print 3x4" cards on 4x6" photos by putting two photos together in PicMonkey (yes I have mentioned that a lot), but I also print color tiles via PicMonkey. I used three colors from this page and put three tiles on one of the collage prints. Then I made 3x4" tiles in the same color using the same technique that I use to print photos. This is the blue tile card in action!

I purposely made a Valentines Day card for my husband in 4x6" size to use in my album this week. Supplies included: Pink glittery Thickers, tiny staples, pink hearts punched from paint chips from the store, a small poem printed in 3x4" size, cork and veneer hearts. This only took me 10 minutes to make and I was happy to not have spent $5 on a card I would only semi-like from the store (but SHUSHHH don't tell him that!!)

I used collages across 2 connecting pockets to create a large collage of 6 photos total. This showcased our day at the mall. To make it even more apparent that these 2 pockets are linked, I split the center photo of the girls eating between the 2 pockets AND I added a strip of washi tape over the two pockets to "join" them. I finished by embellishing the washi with "BFFL" alpha.

Using a 1" circle punch and a pack of epoxy stickers from Hobby Lobby (only $3 for 24 of these, or cheaper with coupon) I punched a few circles from a candy bar one of the moms from our Girl Scout troop gave me for Valentine's Day. I am HUGE on including small "flair" type things that are meaningful from my life. I found that punching/creating my own flair from things like this is a fun (and cheap) way to personalize my album in a meaningful way! I used one of these in this weeks spread. Can you find it?
