Project Life 2013: Week Three.

Another week spent hard at work, working, and hard at home, improving!

Click on the photos to enlarge them and see them a little better.

Week of: January 14-20, 2013.

What happened this week? Brian was at work up in Gilroy (it's a commute for him) and we spent lots of time continuing to paint the stairwell and wrap up our home improvement binge!

Anything special about the spread? I enlarged a pic that Brian had sent me via text message from his bike ride after work one day -- I love how easy it was to use a whole page like that.  Totally will be doing it again!

Techniques this week: Aside from the whole page spread, I made my own title card using a stamp set.  I inked it up in a light pink color (Primrose Petals), then rolled the edge in a darker pink color (Raspberry Ripple) to create a two-tone effect on the flower.  Love how it turned out!

Overall thoughts: I finished this two page spread in no time... using one photo to fill a page is a great solution if you are light on photos for the week and don't have much to say!

Project Life, created by Becky Higgins, is a memory keeping system to help capture the bits and pieces of life.  I am using it to capture photos + thoughts on our life every week.  You can view all the posts here.

Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:

Stamps: Betsy's Blossoms
Ink: Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade, Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler
Cardstock:  Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Punches:  1-3/4" Circle (red circle)

  1. That's cool! I don't think I've ever seen someone fill the entire page of a PL spread with a single photo.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving me some love! I truly appreciate it and will return the love whenever I can! Due to spam, all comments are moderated, so it will show up as soon as I have a chance to see it! :)
