{project life} week 1 + video

Hello Project Life Week 1!   It's time to try this project again.  Below is the process video for December 31st - January 5th. I apologize for the over exposed lighting, I'm still adjusting to the moody weather here in Seattle.....

I sewed a few of the elements down to make them more permanent using yellow thread and my sewing machine.

Isn't that puffy lion sticker cute!?!  I used the Project Life Sunshine Core Kit for all the 3x4 and 4x6 card inserts.

Love it when photos have negative space for adding embellishments.

Below is the first of two inserts for this week's spread.  The recipe I used for baking yummy donuts!

I cut a piece of Glitz Design Wild and Free paper down to 8x12 and ran it through my printer to add the recipe.  For the page protector to hold this 8x12 insert, I just trimmed off the right side of a 12x12 page protector and sewed the right side shut with my sewing machine.  It fits perfectly.

The backside of this insert is an enlarged photo of Gatsby, enjoying the afternoon sunshine.

The second insert is a single row of 4x6 photos/inserts.  The 2014 calendar is a free download from Jasmine Dowling.

I also sewed the top opening of the 4x6 insert below to keep the confetti from falling out.  I thought it was a fun addition to our new years eve photo.

The Chargers logo was cut using my Silhouette.

For the journaling, I printed what happened on each day using my printer and a Sunshine Kit 4x6 card.  I'm sure in the future, I'll have more detailed stories to tell, but for now I'm liking this format a lot.

And that's it!  Happy Project Lifeing!! XO
