Hello everyone! I have another completed Project Life spread to share with you all today. I am still working on catching up with previous years, so today’s spread is from three years ago, in February and March of 2011.
It’s a little unbelievable to know that some of these memories are that old, when they still feel like they just happened!
The silver chipboard letters were an awesome find in the Target dollar spot. The enamel dots and year stickers were both found at Michael’s. This card also began my love of enamel dots. They were my very first pack, and my collection and love for emamel dots has only grown!
The gold alpha letters were another Target dollar spot find, and the cute little flower embellishment was bought at Michael’s.
Oh well, live and learn. That’s what these catch up albums have become for me. I’m not too worried about perfection with these spreads, since I’m just trying to back track and catchup. I’m just trying to get the pictures and memories into the album, so I’m using this album to experiment through trial and error while learning my style.
On the right hand side of the spread, I have my March layout. Since I didn’t have enough pictures from each month to make two full spreads, I just combined them into one layout. This has also made it quicker and easier to back track and catchup on old pictures and memories.
For the month letters, I used the same silver chipboard alphas from Target’s dollar spot. I stamped the year with number cling stamps from Michael’s. I love how I was able to fit on number in between each set of hearts. I think it kind of draws your attention a title more to the simple heart background of the card.
For the embellishments, I trimmed down some sticky page flags in various designs. All these flags came in a pack together, so they were already coordinated without being too matchy.
For the journaling, I used bracket cling stamps, and wrote in my thought using one of my Staedtlers.
For the card I just a couple of cling stamps from Michael’s and just wrote a simple description of the picture.
March is always a fun month for me, since it happens t be my birthday month. This March was particularly exciting because it was my 21st birthday!
I believe all the embellishments used on this card were from Jolee’s Boutique, found at Michael’s. I added some fun decorative paper, and used a stencil to trace on the big 2-1.
