Some weeks I just want to get Projet Life done, and other weeks I kinda want to play. This week I had fun playing with my Project Life spread.
Some of my favorite elements this week had to do with my son’s birthday. I included an entire insert dedicated to his party.
One of my favorite pieces this week is this 4×6 insert. I used a cut file from Kerri Bradford (linked below) to create the chevron paper. I added a piece of Ali Edwards word art (also linked below) and finished it off with a grid block and stamp. To attach the insert I folded stuck on a piece of washi tape to the top edge. Then I folded it over and stuck it to the back. About an eighth of an inch was sticking above the top of the protector. To stick it to the spread I used a strip of Glossy Accents. It’s holding really well so far, but it was a bit tricky to allow it to dry without getting stuck in the wrong places. Update: eventually the pocket fell off, so I stitched across it with my sewing machine instead.
On the back side I added another grid block and journaled a bit about the photos. These pictures got special treatment because they are all photos from my son’s actual birthday. We had such a great day and I wanted to honor that separately from the party pics.
My boy wanted a Jake and the Neverland Pirate party. I used paper bags for the invites and for the party treasure maps so I decided to use paper bags as a base for the insert as well. (wanna see the invites?) Since I had some left over red cloth (from the headbands) I used it to create a tie on the page. To finish it off I added some stickers, some stamping and my journaling.
More stamping on this side of the page as well. I added some classic Jake and the Neverland Pirate quotes as well as the names of the main characters. Then I included a photo of all our party guests. I gotta say, I LOVE this insert! 🙂
But my favorite story has to do with my Dad. I wrote more about it here. But I just had to include it in my Project Life this week.
Still loving this project! How about you? Are you doing Project Life? If you’d like more Project Life inspiration check out The Mom Creative!
