Project Life: Week 9

Yesterday I posted the process I go through to plan for my weekly Project Life layouts.  I really think the hardest part for me is choosing my photos and determining where I am going to put them on my layouts.  Once I get that done the actual page making is pretty quick and simple (Read: Less than 3 hours...).  I am a fiddler and a least half the time I spend scrapbooking is spent fiddling and tweaking.  If I could just learn to leave things alone I'd get things done much more quickly.  But I love to fiddle and tweak.  It's just my nature.

Woohoo....I finished Week 9...according to my calculations I am approximately 17.3% through with the year! HAHA!

Here is the left side...and once again I used Basic Grey Fact and Fiction papers and embellishments.  I had picked up these things a while ago at Joann's 50% off....great deal and I love it all!

 Here is my "Week 9" card...why I added butterflies I don't know except that I like butterflies.  "Week 9" was cut with a font installed on my computer with the Silhouette Cameo.  The butterflies were created with a Martha Stewart punch (Go, Martha!).  I added a couple of staples and some pen stitching as well as a bit of twine and that was it.
The "Today" card was cut with my Cameo, as well, from a design purchased in the Silhouette Online store.  I used one of the Becky Higgins grid cards that I purchased from Amazon (they are 4x6) but I just easily ran it through my Cameo to get the 3x4 size.
And next is another little card cut with the Cameo from an Ali Edwards design that I purchased from Designer Digitals HERE.  I simply imported the .png file into the Silhouette Studio software and "traced" it to get the cut lines.  So simple and works so well!  Look how skinny that little cut is! :)  And again I used a Becky Higgins grid card (or half of one) to make the background of the journaling block. the right side of the 2 page layout:

On the top right is a journaling card made with various embellishments from the Basic Grey line.  

I made the little 3x4 journaling/filler card below with some other embellishments including this cute little hanger, a piece of flair and a chipboard accent!
 This card was cut with the Cameo from a design in the Silhouette Online store (so many wonderful files in the store that work perfectly for Project Life). I added a little fabric flower to the card and just think it's so darned cute!
Again I cut the frame for my beach sunset picture from an Ali Edwards 4x6 frame set and then used Lauren Script to cut out the word "serene" which I welded in the Silhouette Studio software.

Another great week!  Life is good!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Hi darling!!!

    Thank you SO much for the lovely comments you've been leaving on my blog posts lately--they make my day!!! :D I need to have your e-mail address so that I can reply to you immediately whenever I get your comments, because I have a million things I want to express to you right then and there, but I can't reply back to the blogger e-mail that delivers your messages.

    Anyway, beautiful layouts you have on here! Really enjoyed your beautiful pictures!!! (: I like this kind of layout where you insert the photos in each space, because it looks less intimidating for someone like me who doesn't scrapbook! HA! Anyway, lovely work as always!!! Hope all's well on your end!! Love ya! Sending BIG hugs your way!!! xoxoxo

  2. LOTS of good stuff on these pages, Susan!! (You must have taken quite a haul on your vacation.) Since I don't do physical scrapping, it's really interesting to see how "digital" stuff translates to the physical. When you cut the Ali Edwards' stuff, what material was used? It doesn't look like paper.But it's all so pretty!! =)

  3. The Ali Edwards items were cut out of paper....the Basic Grey Fact and Fiction line. :)

  4. How lovely. What is project Life? It sounds like a great way to capture the small moments in life.
