Hello and welcome to Project Life Tuesday!
If you are stopping by from The Mom Creative, welcome & thanks for clicking over! If you are not, you might want to click over there when you’re done here for some more great Project Life inspiration!
I’m using the Clementine Edition of the Project Life kit offered by Becky Higgins, supplemented by some digital extras and using up the random bits I have from twelve-plus years of scrapbooking. Some weeks are more digital than others and some weeks are full of frills and furbelows. It just depends on my mood.
I haven’t posted in a while (3 weeks!) because I got behind on my album – have been so busy catching up on other things since my work trip that scrapbooking took a backseat to, well, life.
I did get to spend some time this past weekend getting a little bit caught up. Still have two weeks to do, but I feel much less panicked about how much I have to do. I was quickly reaching that critical juncture of “do I even continue?” and I really didn’t want to go there. So, I feel rather proud of myself for jumping back on the wagon.
I finished my January – June album this weekend. I had decided that I needed to split it up into two volumes way back in March or April when I saw how thick the album already was. Thankfully, I had two of the same type of album already so there was no additional expenditure necessary and everything ties in nicely.
I made a cute little card to put in the last pocket so that folks would know to continue on –
I used some of the digital Project Life paper and just added my text on top. Isn’t it cute?
So, since I am catching up, the pages I have to share are from Memorial Day week –
Sorry that one is so blurry. I could not get it focused for the life of me. I don’t know why. The good news is that the rest are clear and crisp. I decided to use a red and teal theme this week and the inserts and photos seemed to fit nicely with that little idea.
and some close ups of the left page:
I made a pennant with some scraps of paper and some twine that I had from a Studio Calico kit.
The Memorial Day insert was a freebie I downloaded.
I also used some washi tape (with little teal hearts) and one scrap of paper that had a pinkish tinge to it and red grid lines. I cut that sucker up and used every single scrap – decorated plain grid journal cards and made a journal card (with washi tape on it) as well. I love that about this project – that I can use even the smallest bits of scraps – makes me feel frugal. (wink wink)
The right page:
Washi tape on the picture to add journaling:
LOVE the picture of Big Girl with the water hose. She looks so ferocious!
My last little scrap of grid paper being put to good use –
And as soon as I finished taking pictures, the girls grabbed the album and went through every.single.page again – from January to June. I love that. I love that they love to look back and remember and that I’m capturing those memories for them.
That’s why we do this, isn’t it?
I’ll be back with more as soon as I find time to do another week’s worth of pages!
Thanks for stopping by!

So cute! I love that little rounded garland on your date card!
Great post Lois. I love the idea for the last page of the album – I am trying to come up with something creative for mine – I will have 3 albums this year!! That green album is just lovely.
The photo of the kids looking through the album is great. You are so right when you say that is what it is all about.
Thanks for sharing.
I’m happy to share the little jpg file I made if you’re interested!
Thanks Lois that would be great, my email is:
Do you mind deleting this post (or my email address) after you have sent it? Thank you! 🙂
I will email in the morning!
Those chocolate muffins look soooo good. What a great start to your summer.
those chocolate muffins are my family’s favorite – I sneak protein powder in them so that they are not just a total sugar bomb but a little bit more healthy. I also use whole wheat flour. (sneaky sneaky)
really like the cute garland on your week card – pretty layout!
