Elle’s Studio-Week 1 Project Life

Hello friends!  Welcome back!  Candace with you today to share my week 1 of 2017 Project Life. Now, I am not this far behind! LOL… What I like to do is print out my photos weekly and stick them in the pockets.  Then when I find the perfect cards and embellishments I complete the spread.  I like this format because it keeps things interesting and fresh.  It also cuts down on the time it takes me to complete the spread by having the photos all printed and ready to go!

Now, for this weeks spread.  I used the photos as the color inspiration for the spread. I build my spread with dark blues, mint, gray and wood grain.


I started with the title card for the week and stamped this weeks dates with black StazOn ink. To bring a little color to the card I added a blue puffy sticker from the Family Fun collection.


I love the two cards on the left side of the spread that leave a little spot for a 2×2 photo and journaling.  This allowed me to add more photos and words to my spread. My favorite card on the left side of the spread is definitely the world map card (swoon).  The color and map are just perfection and there is even a small spot to add notes! I marked on the map where my husband went that week for business along with a photo collage.


On the right side of the spread I balanced the colors by adding a few blue elements along with a gray journal card along the center.


To add a interest to the acrylic button I weaved a bit of white embroidery floss through the holes.


I love the look and contrast of the foodie stickers on top of my candy photo!


One of my favorite parts to include in my weekly spread is memorabilia.  This week I included a picture my little guy drew for me.  For my journaling I used the Family Fun stamp as a title and ran the journal card through the typewriter.


Such a fun spread to put together and all the items from Elle’s Studio were the perfect match!
