project life | week 4

Jan 31, 2012

Last night after class I came home and was determined to work on my Week 4. I didn't finish all of it that night but did indeed finish it after I got home from work today. I always enjoy Tuesday's because it is Project Life Tuesday and it really is fun to look at everyone's weeks. Of course, I like some more then others, but overall I look at every single post that is on TheCreativeMom. I think that if someone took the time to write about it for others to see, I will look. I may not comment, but I always look at them. The refresh button on my work computer probably hates me. The ones that I appreciate the most are people that are similar to me, in the sense that I do not have any children but still document my life with my significant others and friends.

Ever since classes have start it's been difficult to get my life into some sort of "flow." It is week 2 of classes so hopefully by next week, I will catch on. I finally received my Silhouette Cameo!! The excitement can not be withheld! Unfortunately, with being so busy with work and school I have not had much time to use it, but I did do a little for this week.

Left side:
Recipe #3. I love girl scount cookies. More Fifa pictures. Her bath, her in a box haha, and we took her to the "petting zoo" and she met the horse, whom she was not interested in whatsoever.

I used the Silhouette to cut out "week four" and foam stickers to pop up the days, the cut out is from Ormolo design.

This makes me look like an orange spray tan, but the iPhone reverse camera isn't the best. I got my hair cut last week and it will never look this good again, boo! Instead of a journaling card I used a shipping tag and some AC letters. I am horrible at date stamping.

I felt that I should take this close up because it is my Project Life scrapbook desk, it isn't anywhere close to being organized like others. I have 3 other roommates and I don't want to take up the other dining room table so I take a desk in the corner. It's all I need! There are drawers that you can't see that are filled with stickers, letters, and embellishments.

Right side:
This page protector is Design C, I just put two 3x4 sized cards in to look like Design A. I still have a few but I am trying to hold out for when they are back in stock. I am sure they will sell fast! I journaled about my mom's birthday using Ali Edwards' 4x 6 story overlays. I really like those, you can type in them on PSE or just print them out and write on them yourself.

Close up of me and my mom on her birthday. Again, I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut out the small happy birthday and attached it with a stapler. I really love using that machine and can not wait until I have more time to play with it.

Steve and I went to the Philly Auto Show after spending time with my mom. We got a free ticket from a guy while we were standing in line, he just gave it to us because he no longer needed it. We also found free street parking so we didn't have pay $29 to park for 2 hours - OBNOXIOUS!

I bought my first pair of snowboard pants! They're pink, I am not so sure how much I like about that but Steve said that it would be easier for him to find me on the bunny slopes haha. He always looks on the bright side and they were super cheap!

I had a ton of fun doing this weeks layout. It's not much different but I enjoyed finishing it up. Make sure to go to PLT and look at some others!

The Mom Creative

Supplies used:
PL Core Kit - Colbalt, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, Ormolo- shipping tags & bakers twine, Silhouette Cameo, AC chipboard letters, Epson Photo Paper, Bic Mark-It, Fiskar corner rounder (I wouldn't recommend though), date stamp


  1. Great pages, I can't get over that parking &&& that's as bad as it was in San Francisco! When we were in Philly last spring we didn't go anywhere that expected that much. I am glad you've started documenting your life pre kids etc. I started years before I had mine and for the longest time I felt weird because I'd go to crops or talk online with other scrappers and be the only one without kids. But now some of my daughter's favorite books to look at are the ones of Mommy and Daddy before she came along. Plus I think it's nice for her to know I had a life before kids!

  2. Love your pages! Love that you are documenting your life before kids. I have a scrapbook before I was married w/kids and i do love to look back at it. Thanks for sharing!!

  3. I know, I always think I can't wait until I'm older with children and they can see that I did have a life and I was cool when I was younger! haha thank you! :)

  4. I so love your layout... crisp and clean and beautiful! Love the photos, too... ~ kimmy
