I have a new project life spread to share today! I actually have been doing good and keeping up with every week but I haven’t photographed every layout and blogged about them yet. Last week, I had the project life video I did for the blog hop that was super fun to make! I mean, video editing is super addictive. It might be new obsession now!
But for this weeks spread, I just have photographs to share… Here is how this week looks,
It was a pretty simple week here, and I had just received the Elle’s Studio July 2013 kit and it was the best kit I ever bought! The kit really focussed on Project life and it ships for under $3. The bits and pieces are really cute and colorful. But the best part? The best part is that I have almost finished up 70% of the kit already!!!!
My most favorite thing from this week were these photos we took at the park. I simply adore the Right Now paper (as in not metal) paper clip . SO cute!
Things that I reached for for this spread: The Elle Studio kit and my Canon matte photo paper- 4 by 6 inch size.
Things I did differently this week: I printed photos almost daily. Before bedtime, I would process the days photos, hit print and then go to bed. While this might seem excessive to some, I felt it was something that liberated the process for me. It is really difficult for me to find a 2 hour chunk to work on Project life over the weekend or on Monday and this has been something that works for me. Hopefully I wont run out of printer ink in the middle of the night.
Things I loved on this spread: The blue paper clip, the alphas and the tunnel photos. I also loved that I got journaling written down as and when it happened.
Things that worked for me on this spread: I printed up a collage of the extra photos of the week. I used to spend time and figure out how I could creatively place everything on the layout for my earlier spreads. But now, I just print the photos I like as 4 by 6 inch sizes and fit in the other ones as a collage. Keeping it simple.
I haven’t really had any free printables for while now, but that is because I have been finding and pinning so many awesome ones to my pinterest board!
Thanks for stopping by today!

I use this paper by Canon– which is simply amazing!!! It is a matte paper and has the look and feel of cardstock. This printer/paper combo is the main reason Project Life is working for me this year. I am also using this new corner rounder by Fiskars.
My album and page protectors, I got at Target and are the We R memory keepers brand. I am trying to maintain a consistant journaling font this time, and am using Helvetica Neue. I do all my digital processing in Adobe Photoshop Cs5.
