Project Life 2016 Week 23 | Dear Lizzy Saturday!!!!

Oh I am so excited about today's layout! Last week American Crafts released like seven whole lines of beautiful products and I could not wait to start using them!!!! I absolutely have a philosophy that means when new products come through the door, I start using them right away while I am still excited and pumped about them. So have a look at my process video and at some of these pretty things in this collection!

This week's Project Life layout was created in the App using the Memories in the Making kit available on the App. This is the layout as it was printed:

This is the layout completed, with journaling and embellishments added on top:

Project Life 2016 Week 23

This week was the last week of school, so I had end of year parties and field day and graduation to document. The chipboard words in the Saturday collection made it so easy to embellish this date card.

I love the simplicity of hand-writing my journaling onto these layouts. I know the App has some awesome fonts and it's tempting to just add it that way and be done, but whenever I write it myself I always feel happier about what I have done.

I did not do much to the photos on the bottom of the layout, just a bit of washi and a fun camera puffy sticker!

More journaling here and a little stamping on the heart. Yes, I totally changed up the ink color and I have found that those Dew Drop tiny ink pads from Tsukeniko stamp really easily on this photo paper, so I am trying to remind myself to reach for those instead of my Staz-on. If you have been following me with my stamping issues on this photo paper, throw some confetti because I feel like this issue has been resolved for me!

No embellishments on this photo of my son, just keeping it simple and easy to complete.

The right hand side of the layout is all about our daughter Emberlynn. Yes, these photos look familiar because several weeks ago I created another layout about her graduation using my Ali Edwards Believe Story kit. This story fits in here again, chronologically, so I made sure to include it again.

I added this fun banner so I could easily identify what this photo is about. These are the fifth graders, who are playing tug-o-war. Such a fun picture!

Project Life 2016 Week 23

I adore this banner from the Saturday collection, and I popped it up using pop dots, and then added a chipboard heart.

I used another chipboard word on this photo below, because I am absolutely in love with them. I may need more of them......

Project Life 2016 Week 23

I absolutely embellished each of the photos on this layout. On this one, I added a tiny bit of washi and some of the chipboard arrows.

Project Life 2016 Week 23

I linked these two, the journaling card and the photo, together using the puffy stickers. One thing I really love about doing Project Life this way is being able to cross the boundaries between each card. Sometimes I completely ignore those boundaries. 

Project Life 2016 Week 23

For the photo of her receiving her diploma, I only added a few of these chipboard plus signs.
