Project Life: Week 7

I'm doing the happy dance!  I just finished Week 7.  I actually finished it up yesterday except I needed to get one more 4x6 printed...I'm sort of wishing I had a GOOD yet portable....maybe wireless...printer.  Oh well....for now I am having a very good relationship with CVS!

I did finish my Project Life Week 7!  Wahoo....that makes 7 down and 45 weeks to go! at the end of this process am I going to have 4 volumes for 2013??? ...I am rethinking the whole digital vs. paper thing for 2014 if I should continue!  LOL!

But for now I'm still having fun, cutting, gluing, pasting....AND corner rounding!

Here are my pages...all done with American Crafts With Love papers and embellishments:
The "Week" box on the top left was made with my trusty Silhouette Cameo.  I created the box and welded a couple of heart shapes to it...and then I cut the banner out (I do love a banner!) and overlaid the letters so it would cut them out, one fell swoop of the Cameo cut!

The bottom right filler card is also a cameo cut and was done to go on with my Valentine theme of the week.  I tired all different kinds of paper prints but finally settled on white with a little color under it.

As I mentioned the papers and embellishments are American Crafts...a line exclusive to TARGET!  I made several Valentine's Day cards with these papers and decided to use them for this week's Project Life.  I happened to be in Target the other day and the buttons and little flag on the top right were on clearance.  Loved it!
And here is the right side:
I continued to go wild with the Cameo and made the little speech bubble box on the left side of my granddaughter's picture.  I just created the box and then took an oval and welded it with the little directional thingy....and then welded again to the box.  So fast and simple.  The shape between the two pictures of Taylor is a cut file from the Silhouette Online store....I did nothing to it except cut it ou and then added a button.  Here's a closer shot of it.
I forgot to take a photo of the bottom left journaling box but it also a cut from the Silhouette Online store as was the word "love".  All so appropriate for Valentine's Week!

Hope this next week is a good one for you all and that you have a week of...



  1. Susan, I'm in love with your pages!!! :D They're gorgeous!!! I have those same stick on buttons that I got at Michaels a few weeks back!!! It's SO awesome seeing you use them on a page layout (since I only make cards lol). Also LOVE that die cut heart background panel!!! And the banner as well!!! :D Lovely work as always, my friend!!! Hope you're having a great Sunday!!! Xoxoxo

  2. Like the wonderful cuts you made with your Cameo. Like the photo of your Grandson hugging or is he tickling your Granddaughter. Sorry Izzie; even though I do find you to be a cutie.

  3. Hi Susan, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  4. Beautiful pages and excellent commentary as usual! I really like that heart card with the button!

  5. Hi Susan! I read your post on the silhouette yahoo group and clicked over to your blog. You have created such beautiful layouts! I especially love how you have used your silhouette to embellish. I used to use CM years ago, but love how easy PL is and the transition to it from full-fledged scrapbooking. PL is so much easier to use and keep up with. You have given me new inspiration to work on my both my silhouette and my PL albums! So happy I found your blog!!!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate the time it took you to leave me a note and I will enjoy reading it. Happy Crafting!
