Project Life: Week 18

Project Life Weekly Share

The littles are napping and a very kind mama friend is running my big guy around right now. I've just finished cleaning the house, OK I still have the kitchen floors to do, but the rest is done. Lots of self praise here as I don't usually clean. But our cleaning lady is sick this week and I know how much the husband enjoys cleaning day.

I think I've deserved a little sit down time to blog Week 18. How much do you want to bet the littles know I'm resting and start to wake up? Yea, me too. I'll be quick.

This was the first week I completed that included Travis and I think I love it. Crazy to see three little boys in this album now.

Pulled out the Cameo for this week. My confidence is beginning to slowly build with my new toy.

I don't normally talk new product here since I primarily pull from my stash but there are two things I ordered when I was placing an adhesive order from Two Peas that were used alot this week. The new October Afternoon line 9 to 5 and several patterned papers from Simple Stories. I think I'm going to have to reorder 9 to 5 I love it so much.

When I have a lot of Instagrams and I have a divider in my layout I really like adhering my Instagrams back to back on the divider. This week I also added little journaling spots.

Both 4x6 backgrounds are from Simple Stories. I had a lot of questions on Instagram about these pockets when I posted a picture. I love finding patterned papers that I can simply add my Instagram pictures and a little bit of journaling to and still have it look like I invested extra time.

LOVE this "Story Enclosed" sticker from the 9 to 5 line. I wanted to add journaling about the 1st grade perfomance & wanted to include the program so I just slipped a 4x6 piece of cardstock behind the program that has the journaling. This little sticker reminds me it's back there.

I didn't want to adhere anything to the notes from Garrett's presentation so I adhered a journaling card to the outside of the page protector with Washi Tape.

Instead of pulling out my sewing machine to customize this 12x12 page protector I used Washi tape to seal it.

I really like the "Mommy Guess What!" journaling card. I backed the patterned paper with cream cardstock to help the words stand out and then layered that on a grid journaling card. I love the little bit of dimension it adds.
