Project Life: Week 5

Hi everyone, I'm back with my first week of Project Life for February.  For this week's spread, I chose the ScrapRoom's Crate Paper Fourteen kit.  It made for quite a colorful spread.

Week 5

Left Side and Front of Insert
This week I had a TON of pictures, so I decided to use an insert.  The left and right pages are traditional Becky Higgins Design A page protectors, and the insert is a 10" x 12" Design G.  

Back of Insert and Right Side

One reason I chose this insert is because it allowed me to use two 4" x 6" vertical photos of each of my kiddos with their grandparents.

The title card is pretty simple.  A couple of pieces of patterned paper topped with two die cuts from my Silhouette.  

To add the date to my layout, I cut this Memories image from my Silhouette.  I love that the patterned paper peeks through.  The cardstock all came in my kit.  I was even able to print my journaling onto the cardstock and then trim it down into a lithe banner shape.  

For my filler cards, I added more journaling strips attached with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher (an awesome addition to your Project Life supplies) and October Afternoon Label Stickers and some AC Kraft Heart Stickers.  I love that it doesn't take much time or many supplies to embellish the small 3" x 4" cards.

And finally, I added a cropped picture to the American Crafts Die Cut frame and embellished it with some October Afternoon Mini Market Alpha stickers.  Quick, easy, but SO cute!  

This week's spread includes nineteen photos.  Nineteen!  And . . . the layout is IN the album, not sitting on a shelf waiting to be put away.  And . . . I still have plenty of supplies left to do another spread or even create a traditional layout if I like.  

Anyway, I'm glad you stopped by today.  See you soon with more February spreads.
