Project Life: Week 6

For my Week 6 spread, I decided to mix it up a little by using two of The ScrapRoom February kits:  Crate Paper Fourteen and American Crafts Darling Dear.  I based my selections on the colors in the pictures.  

Week 6

With Insert
Without Insert

Again this week, I used an insert since I had sooooo many pictures.  This time, however, the insert is half of a Becky Higgins Design E page protector.  I love that all these pocket page protectors are seamed, so you can just trim then wherever you need to.  

Back of Insert
Becky Higgins' Design E page protectors have four 6" x 6" openings.  I filled two of those openings with 6" x 6" collages that I created using Diptic, an iPhone app, and then printed at Persnickety Prints.  You can learn more about these prints HERE.  I filled the other two openings with mini layouts, one with paper strips and a card from the American Crafts paper and one with a 4" x 6" photo and paper border. The soccer ball was cut with my Silhouette.

For my title card, used patterned paper and another 3x3 card from the American Crafts paper.  The Studio Calico Wood Veneer Alphabet pieces are perfect for adding the week.  For one of the filler cards, I used an October Afternoon label sticker and one of the American Crafts chipboard hearts.  None of these embellishments is very thick, so they work very well in the pocket page protectors.

For this week's journaling, I created a Week In Review card.  It was so easy to type up the journaling and cut it out in strips.  And how cute are the Wood Veneers Alphabet pieces to label this card?

You wanna know my favorite part of this spread, though?  I got 16 photos into an album in about an hour using the contents of one of my TSR kits.  I am definitely getting more pages done!
