Project Life, Weeks 5 and 6

Chugging right along, after this post I'll be caught up to the halfway point with posting! I'm staying current with my album so far, and love experimenting every week with new products and techniques. So much fun to play with paper stuff again!
Week Five 

On the left side, I started with a Seafoam title card, Dear Lizzy Fancy glitter foam Thickers, a Twine and Ink star (from a Studio Calico PL kit), and my Smash date stamp. The first 4x6 photo is all digital, with lovey-dovey goodies from The Lilypad's February BYOC. The little boy journal card is from This&That by Lori Whitlock. Then more digi embellishing, a Seafoam journal card, Smash stickies, washi, a little Chic Tag, vellum arrow from a Studio Calico kit, and a Pebbles word label.

Love this layout! This week I really delved into my digital supplies, inspired by the beautiful stuff in The Lilypad's February BYOC (Build Your Own Collection, a whole bunch of coordinating, mix-and-match digital supplies released every month). The top right 4x6 and the second 3x4 cards include digital elements printed right onto my photos. The top left 4x6 includes some more bits from This&That line by Lori Whitlock. I'm super proud of the hidden journaling pocket I created with my favorite washi on the top right! See that little tab? Cute, right?! I stuck a vellum arrow, Dear Lizzy brad, and Tim&Beck alpha stickers on top of my pocket. 
Also seen on this side: Seafoam journal card, Studio Calico labels and calendar card, more washi, and lots of alpha stickers! I'm kinda obsessed with them, especially the tiny ones. So perfect for Project Life! Oh, and I prettied up the calendar card with a stamp from Studio Calico's 34th Street kit. 
Week Six
I dabbled with spray ink and masks this week. Not entirely successfully, but I think the title card is pretty :). The number is American Crafts Jewelry Box Thickers, and the Week letters are Martha Stewart (hurrah for Michael's clearance!). A mix of Studio Calico February PL kit, Seafoam, and one printed-out journal card. Those sweet little circles are also printed out, from the Dotted: Love Edition by Amy Martin. I even managed to size them currently to use the only circle punch I own. I'm ridiculously proud of that hybrid accomplishment. The kitchen photo is decorated with elements from Karla Dudley's Damselle collection.

I thought those Facebook status cards by Peppermint Creative added the perfect touch! Added two more Studio Calico cards, some tags and badges from Evalicious, and of course the washi! 
I managed to include some actual ephemera this week, a discharge summary from the doctor for Riah, a birthday party invite, and a couple tickets from a men's dinner my husband took our oldest son to. The invitation lifts up to reveal a collage of photos from the party.

Thanks for looking!
