Project Life ~ Week 3

So trying to keep on top of things and I am proud to say that my Project Life for this year I am keeping up to date. I believe this is because I have implemented better planning. I think for a structured project life Project Life that you really need to 'plan'. That also seems to be a trending theme in the scrapbooking industry at the moment with all the planning craze!
It's a real shame that us Aussie's have been missing out a little as most of the planners are stuck on the docks in America due to an industrial strike. I personally have ordered myself one of the Heidi Swapp planners. I originally was going to go with Webster's Pages planner but after seeing a closer look, realised that the HS style was more me. You can see the planner I have picked below. Isn't it gorgeous?




















To curb my impatient waiting I have been going crazy pinning my planning ideas on THE SCRAPPERY Pinterest Planning board. Feel free to check it out.
So in the meantime I have been using printable planning sheets but I can't wait to get this planner because I plan to incorporate some blog planning in there too. I want to make this blog a bit more trendy and get a more regular with my posting now that I am head first back into creating!

So speaking of THE SCRAPPERY. Which I hope you have all checked out *wink*
I have created my WEEK 3 spread using the January Scrappery Project Life kit (Pretty Little Kit) Just to do a little brag here, I want to say that we are the only Australian kit club to do exclusive project life cards to match the kit. They are so gorgeous. Nae my business partner does an incredible job of designing. When I received the kit I knew straight away which photos I wanted to use which is partly why we are jumping in a week three spread when I haven't yet shared week 2.



I have shown the spread twice since I have actually placed a 6x8 pocket in between as I had so many photos from this week. You can get a better look at this on the video. I really like how it turned out and I love having the ability to add extra pockets where I need them.

Here's the process video showing how I went about creating this spread;




I loved using the gold sequin trim in this kit. It came in ORLA which was the embellishment kit for January and I hope you don't get sick of it because I have put it on my last 5 or 6 layouts and spreads. Just a tiny bit addicted!
I have also used this gorgeous picture of my niece. She looks scarily identical to my sister.


The card of my son eating an ice cream is actually a part of a 3x4 lift up pocket which then reveals an extra 3x4 card and a photo. I wanted to include both photos but was pushing it for room on the layout so this worked really well. You can see a photo of it lifted up at the bottom of this blog post.


 

This is why I knew I had to use this kit for this week because it was PERFECT. I had photos of ice creams and strawberries both of which were included as stickers and die cuts in the kits.



So I hope you enjoyed this look at my WEEK 3 spread. I will be editing my week two process video today and having it uploaded for you very soon. I can't wait to share.

Much love.
