Project Life: Week 7

For my 2012 Project Life album (the album that I am currently putting together), Week 7 corresponds to Valentine's Day.  The ScrapRoom's American Crafts XO February kit was the perfect choice since there was a lot of black and red in my photos.  It turned out to work very well.  (Click on photos to enlarge.)

Week 7

Since the paper in this kit is SO cute, I decided to keep my title, journaling, and filler cards simple.  For this one, I used a strip of 2.5" x 6" embossed cardstock.  The word February was cut with my Silhouette from black cardstock, but you could just as easily use some stickers from your stash.  The heart was punched from the back of one of the papers.  I stamped the date on a small scrap of red and then notched the ends.

Another simple insert.  I cut a piece of 2" x 4" paper and layered it with a border punched strip on top of the back side of one of the papers.  Add a couple of the super cute layered stickers and some typed journaling and done.

Ok, this one is my favorite!!!  I had a bunch of my kids' Valentines from their classmates to include.  Originally, I was going to place them all in the pockets but they were all different sizes and orientations.  My fix?  To create a pocket.  I cut a 2" x 4" piece and layered it over a 4" x 6" piece.  I used Red Line tape on the bottom and sides to keep it in place.  Then, I added a couple of embellishments.  The whole pocket along with Valentine cards easily fits into the page protector.  My kids were SUPER excited.

For this next insert, I used the Midway Washi Tape from the Embellishment Add-On to tape down the card that came with my flowers from my husband for Valentine's Day.  So excited that I saved that!  The only other embellishment that I used are the Studio Calico wooden people from several kits ago.  Their size is just perfect for Project Life!

This month's Stamp Set is too cute!!!  And just perfect for my Valentine spread.  I decided to stamp the images in White Staz On ink directly onto my photos.  I was really nervous, but it turned out to be easy.

Here's the last two filler cards.  Nothing but patterned paper and a cute heart sticker.

Right now I am working on printing pics and getting organized for my my March spreads.  I'll be back soon to share that process with you.  It is by no means perfect, but you may get something out of it.  See ya soon!
