Project Life 2012 | Week 15

Week 15 and Project Life is officially my favorite project that I’ve ever done. EVER. I’m excited about all the life that’s getting captured and I look forward to the process every week.

Project Life 2012 | Week 15

I’ve been very good about not using inserts lately (I’m trying to cut down on album bulk), but this week we celebrated Easter, had a family photo shoot, and hosted two big family dinners. So an insert was justified.

The left page is dedicated to Easter Sunday. I had fun using bright Spring colors.

Easter baskets! The textured off-white paper is backing from a pack of stickers. Packaging for scrapbooking supplies (and other products) is often awesome–so don’t overlook it or throw it away!

Photos from Easter morning. Notice that I look awful. I’m all about including photos that capture the memory, putting vanity aside. I also included a photo of Eliza that was super blurry, because it best showed her excitement.

I wanted to use up a lot of the Easter themed embellishments I had, so I put a bunch of eggs and chicks in a row on the bottom (it’s a mix of sticker and rub-ons). I even “hid some eggs” in the plant! I’m going to try very hard to stop hoarding supplies.

Easter morning journaling | Easter morning Eliza couldn’t wait and ran downstairs. She found almost all the eggs before the rest of us got up–she had to re-hide some for Jonas. She left her basket along though–this girl knows her photo ops. Jonas threw an egg on the floor and jammed a bunch of jelly beans in his mouth before we could get to him!

I wanted to connect these two spots to show that they cover the same event, so I used the same paper on both and used my go-to of spreading stickers over more than one spot.

Easter dinner journaling | We had Easter dinner at our house. Ham, potatoes, salad, fruit, cheese, deviled eggs–YUM! Our moms and sisters came and we had a total blast. Oh, and those are pop-on nails on Eliza!

I love this photo of my sister Taylor and Eliza.

I doubled layered the washi tape underneath the sticker so the washi would stand out more.

I made a teeny tiny insert out of a single page protector spot that I trimmed off for an insert in a past week. I just punched a hole through all the layers so I’d be able to put it through the binder rings. I used a brad to keep the open sides together.

Journaling | This week we had an adventure! We did a family photo shoot downtown, had dinner at Chipotle, and went bowling at Lucky Strike. What an amazing day!

The other side of the teeny tiny insert is purely decorative. I used a sticker to cover up the back of the brad.

The back of the insert has a “This Week in Instagram” list. Each item corresponds with one of the photos on the right.

I typed each of the Instagram descriptions with my favorite typewriter. Typewriter scrapbooking tip: add text before you adhere anything onto the page.

I also included a screenshot of a Google + hangout with my friend Allie.

The last page has photos from a family party on the top (my Grandpa was out of town for Easter and my Aunt’s birthday, so we had a late party to celebrate). On the bottom is a collection of 36 one inch Instagram photos.

Journaling | Saturday we had faux Easter / a birthday party for Beth. Poppy & Bev were on a cruise over Easter, so we had this post-poned party instead! We <3 family get-togethers!
