Finally able to share my Project Life pages for March. I've had them done for a bit but didn't have time to post them. Wanted to share them on "National Scrapbook Day", BUT I got a message from Blogger saying I was out of picture space. Boo. Now I'm paying to post. Wasn't expected. Oh well, now I can get back on track & share.
This is technically the end of February & the beginning of March. I've been using a lot of my Instagram pics so one weeks worth of pics can fit in one sheet protector. There might be weeks where I use more 4x6 pics & will have 2 page spreads, but for now I like this. It's been very quick to get done, when I don't over think the LO's. ;)
This week had a lot of pics to include so it had a few insert pages. This is how they look stacked together. Can't tell here but in the book they are staggered & fun to flip through.
The first insert is a simple 6x12 protector with the program of Gianna's music show slipped in. Nothing fancy, and I'm okay with that.
The next starts off my birthday celebration. I had a variety of pics I wanted to include so I used a 3 photo 4x6 protector page, mixing both Instagram shots & 4x6. Fun to create.
And seriously, I can not tell you how much fun I'm having digging through my stash & re-discovering things I bought long ago and FINALLY USING THEM!! Rub-ons, stickers, buttons, STAMPS! You name it! Then of course, there's my new favorite, the Silhouette Cameo. It's a dream to play with!
This was a 4x4 page protector that holds 9 pics. I trimmed it down to just 3 pics (spaces) & using washi tape to "seal" the trimmed edge & punching holes onto the edge. I saw that on THIS BLOG & loved the idea for "creating" your own pages.
Used another 3 4x6 page protector for this. Simple.
I don't think I can make a page without washi or Silhouette shapes anymore. They just add "something" fun/special to the page.
See the circle in the top corner pic? I just used a small circle punch to punch a circle then used a slightly larger circle punch to create the circle, so I can highlight Gianna in the pic. She blended in with all the Girl Scouts & I wanted to make sure we could see her.
Here's another stack of inserts for this week. I think the inserts are super fun to add to the album!
Gianna made me this card at school, & I just slipped it into a page protector that I trimmed to size & sealed with washi, backed it with some green paper & was done. This was as "St. Patty's Day" that we get around here....
Next is my 12x12 insert. Yes this is March 12 & I have it behind the insert for St. Patty's Day on the 17th. Just did it that way since it looks better stacked in the album. I fully plan on doing all my 12on12 photos this way. I just need to go back & re-do the one for January since I did it in an accordion journal insert. This suits me better.
More Instagram, Silhouette shapes & washi. ;)
Added a screen shot from my Facebook wall too. Some days the pics tend to look the same so this was a nice change.
Another insert but with a lot more pics & mostly 4x6 pics (some trimmed to 4x4). We celebrated my niece's 16th birthday & I had a lot of fun with the Silhouette on this. I made my own shapes for the "Sweet Sixteen" & "Sweet 16". I need a lot more practice but I really like how they came out! ;)
