Project Life 2013: Summertime Fun

Memory KeepingAnandiRC1 Comment

I'm a bit behind posting my Project Life (PL) layouts, and since this is my new blog dedicated to all things crafty, I'm moving the party over here.

This layout covers the end of July and the first half of August. Lots of summer fun in this spread - our impromptu "deck picnic", my big girl's first concert (Indigo Girls at the Zoo), Spanish Story Time at various libraries and meeting my friend A's new baby.

I mostly used Citrus Twist's August PL Kit for this spread - I love the color scheme from Basic Grey's Carte Postale line, and the little wood veneer hearts.  The tiny little epoxy birds stickers for my weekly summary are from Heidi Grace, an impulse purchase at Jo-Ann Fabric & Crafts.  That line has some really unique and adorable embellishments!  

Using a coordinated kit to do my PL pages makes it so much easier to just get started, and once I'm working if I need a specific embellishment, then I can just grab that instead of having decision paralysis being faced with my entire stash of pretty things. 

Next time, I'd like to do more stamping. I forget that I have some great stamps in my collection, even though they're front and center on my desk. I need to get in the habit of using them more. 

Here are all of my Project Life pages from 2013 in a nifty slideshow. I can't believe it's already nearly October!
