Stephanie's Project Life: Week 24

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday!  I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

Stephanie here and I'm sharing my week 24 of Project Life today with you!  This week I decided to highlight the awesome freebies from Freebie Friday.  Albert is just so talented!!  Seriously...have you seen all of the printables and cut files?  You can download them from the "freebie" tab in Chic Tags shop.  They are just amazing!!  

Here is a look at how I used some of the freebies and other CT goodies....


I love adding journaling labels, tags and stickers directly to my photos.  And I also love printing my photos out at 4x4 or 3x3 to allow a little more room for journaling and embellishments.  I like to "pre-cut" the cut files on white card stock as soon as I download them.  I add them to my little embellishment bowl in my craft room so I can just grab them whenever I need them.  I find that white card stock works well for me because I can mist or paint over it to get the color I am looking for.


A closer look at the left side of the spread...


The "hello" on the bottom right picture is from the banner and arrows cut files.  I cut the hello part out and misted it with some pink mist to give it a little contrast against my photo and my typed journaling. 

On this page, I also added one of the Birthday Cake journaling cards and one of the tabbed cards from the Autumn collection.  I love how versatile all of the collections are!!



I used a lot of the freebies on this page.  The summer circles are perfect for this time of year!!  They add just a little pop and color to any picture!

I also wanted to use the "love these memories" Summer Title cut file and decided to stitch it directly into my pocket with some confetti.  Confetti always adds a fun element to any page, I think!  I love how it adds a little peek a boo feature to my album.



When I add cut files or anything that will be "floating" in a pocket, I always stitch through the middle of the file/tag/photo, add my confetti and then sew along the top of the pocket to make sure it stays closed.  If you don't have a sewing machine, washi tape will work great!!


Just a few more close-ups of the awesome Chic Tag goodies....





How's your Project Life album coming???

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Hope you have an awesome day!!
