project life: week 7


the weeks are flying by around here.

and i love this project more and more each week.

lots of hearts and love going on for this spread.  i was the lucky winner of the elle's studio prize pack a few weeks ago and it arrived right before i started putting my week together.  yay!!  i love the new day to day line.  super versatile... so i know i will adding it to the next coming weeks for sure.

here's a look at both the left and right pages together...


we listen to lots of music in our house...and our kids tend to gravitate towards several songs and sing them in repetition constantly.  right now, drew is stuck on "fosty da noman" (i.e. "frosty the snowman") and anna sings "jesus loves me" all day long.  to document some of our other favorites right now, i printed up a little playlist in photoshop to include this week.  catherine davis from design editor posts her monthly playlist on her blog so i used her design as my inspiration!  thanks catherine!!


and here's a closer look at the right...



and left...



i also decided to include an insert of our favorite "handmade" valentine's from this year.  we decided as a family to only make our valentine's cards so we set up a little card station.  it was perfect and i don't think we will ever do anything different.  

for the insert...i took pictures of each card, printed them and then sewed each one into it's own square in a cut out page protector.  i added a couple digital freebies from the lilypad just to spice it up a bit!  :)


as always...i'm linking up at the mom creative today.  pop over and see what's new in project life!

and in case you missed my post from last week...there's a 4x6 layered psd freebie just for you!  click here for that post and for a little tutorial of how i use my layered templates.

  5. I love that last insert with the homemade Valentine's. I'm working on my Valentine's week this week so I might just "scraplift"! THanks for the inspiration.

  6. I love these pages...so clean and bright. The valentines insert was a great idea! My husband and I traveled separately last week, so no heart themes for me last week :(
