Project Life Tuesday ~ 21 May 13

Happy Tuesday, y’all!

Hope your week is treating you well – so far so good for us here.

It’s time for another update on my Project Life pages…

A little background

The Mom CreativeThis year, I’m doing my Project Life album digitally. I’m using Creative Memories’ Storybook Creator software and Becky Higgins’ Turquoise Edition (for the most part)  I’ve also purchased these nifty little overlays that allow my pages to look like true pocket pages (I’m loving them).

I’m planning to print my pages as a book – hopefully, it will all fit in one volume and take up less space on the shelf than the 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012 versions which are 2 volumes (2 3” binders) each!

This week’s pages

Journaling reads:

We spent Spring Break at Mom’s house.  SuperMan came down for the weekend and then went back to work at Plant Jack for a shutdown. While we were shopping at Sam’s they had beautiful strawberries so we decided to teach the girls to make strawberry jam. We had such fun making it and by the time we were finished, we’d already had offers from friends to purchase the fruits of the girls’ labors!

Journaling reads:

A fun week and weekend ~ On Saturday SuperMan, Big Girl and I went to River Street for a few hours. We ate lunch at Spanky’s and walked along the river like tourists. On Sunday, the girls hunted for the eggs they’d dyed the day before ~ bittersweet as this might be the last Easer Egg Hunt they decide to do (they’re growing up!) The silly pictures I found on my phone after we got home ~ that’s what I get for letting them “play” on my phone while we are waiting in the restaurants. Later in the week, Big Girl and I got pedicures ~ her first since her surgery. Overall, a very relaxing and pleasant Spring Break week.

More pages coming soon – I’m on a roll!!

  1. Thanks so much for the blog note mentioning that you use CM SB! I’ve been wanting to use the PL type templates within SB, but wasn’t sure how to do it. A couple of questions: do you have to resize your PL cards when you put them on your pages? Do you use templates? If so, which ones do you use that are .page compatible and how do you import them into SB? Sorry for so many questions, but I’m dying to use my PL Stuff, but seem to be constantly resizing/repositioning the digi cards, this should be easier.


    1. Shelly – I do not use a “template” but I do use the overlays I mentioned in my post – and I generally make that the TOP layer of my page and then drop everything in behind it so that there is minimal resizing needed. It looks like everything is slipped in behind that (or so I tell myself)
      I have yet to print any pages, but I really like the look on my computer! 🙂
      I have, in the past, created a “template” in SBC by just creating some 4×6 photo frames (actually a hair smaller than 4×6) and dropping them on the page along with some 3×4 frames to drop the journal cards into. It wasn’t hard, but once I found those overlays I didn’t bother with that anymore.
      Let me know if you have any other questions. I’m always happy to help!
