Happy Tuesday! I hope you enjoyed the long holiday weekend :) I spent most of my time relaxing and catching up on lots of different projects, including the spread I'm going to share with you today from my Project Life album...
August 11 - August 17
|Week 33: Full Spread|
We didn't do anything special this week, but it didn't stop me for capturing everyday life moments. Shopping hauls, tropical smoothies, a sweet surprise for our daughter, even family dinners, happy mail, and some smartphone snippets. Those photographs and tidbits of life were my inspiration for the color and theme this week. It's all about black and white with pops of color. I didn't embellish the pages too much, but instead went for cool printables, handmade cards, and simple details to showcase our week.
|Week 33: Left Page|
Continued from the end of Week 32 is the pocket page that I picked up from Hobby Lobby. Here I'm using a Becky Higgins title card from her Mayfield Mini Kit. I embellished it with Amy Tangerine thickers, some washi tape, and a printable tag that I journaled the current week on.
|Week 33: Left Page | Close Up|
For the remaining 4"x 6" pockets I used a mix of photos and cards. Here I added a wallet-size photo to a journal card that I received in a RAK. These smaller 4"x 3" pockets have double-sided patterned filler cards. The first one is the backside of a MAMBI card, which I added another wallet-sized instagram photo and a black tag cut on my Cameo. I used a white gel pen to add a stitching detail and my journaling. The black and white polka dot card was made from my scraps. It has another small instapic and some tiny alphabet stickers.
|Week 33: Left Page | Another Close Up|
Here I used more Amy T. supplies with a 4"x 4" instapic for my 4"x 6" "Minion" card. The reverse side of another double-sided card from last week holds a wallet-sized instagram photo and some journaling. The remaining cards are fun free printables from my stash that tie my black and white theme together quite well.
|Week 33: Right Page|
This is a Becky Higgins Design A pocket page that I've filled with a fun mix of photographs and cards. Some are handmade, others are printables, and a couple are by MAMBI or WRMK. I chose this page specifically for the 3"x 4" pockets to hold some special cards. Again, I used very little embellishments. Simplicity was key for this spread.

The two 6"x 4" slots hold a cool printable, along with a handmade card using paper from Amy Tangerine's Ready Set Go line. I added two wallet-size instagram pics, a banner that I received in a RAK, and some black Studio G alphas. I also used an Ali Edwards arrow stamp and journaled directly onto the card.
For the row of 3"x 4" pockets I used a mix of different cards and images. The first one is a colorful MAMBI card with a small instapic and the other half of the black tag that I cut with my Cameo. I used a heart corner punch, a white gel pen for the dotted border and journaling, and a few American Crafts alphabet stickers to create the tab. I used another printable from my stash and some snippets from my Galaxy S3 to fill the remaining pockets. A couple of print and cut labels finish off those cards.
|Week 33: A Quote Card|
I needed to fill the last pocket and decided to use my love of quotes for inspiration. So I scoured through my stash of printables for the perfect journal card and came across this black and white one that even had the perfect prompt. I chose cursive for the handwriting, and added some thin paper tape in a yellow dotted design, for a pop of color and to fill the blank space.
I really love how this spread turned out! Simple and fun with cool little details. I hope you enjoyed this week's Project Life post!
