Project Life 2012: Week 23

Welcome to Project Life 2012, week twenty three.

I can't believe I got this done by my "deadline" of Tuesday. The layout is actually a little simpler than I'd wanted it to be, but the desire to finish took over.

Here's the full layout, with the insert:

And the layout without the insert:

Closeups of each page:

This week all of my main photos had little pennant brush overlays which I designed. You can purchase these in my Etsy shop, here.

I used Stampin' Up!'s Bitty Banners Framelits to make little pennant labels for a couple of my inserts, and I used Stampin' Up!'s Bigz Alphabet Typeset dies to make my own chipboard thickers. You can check out my post about these here

I used a white glaze pen from Gelly Roll to journal a little letter to Austin on a sheet of transparency film, which I placed over one of the photos from the beach:

For the "title" of my insert, I used more of the transparency film to stamp 'one fabulous day.' I used StazOn ink for this - it works perfectly on glossy surfaces. The stamps are from Stampin' Up!'s Fabulous Phrases set. I then added some stars punched with one of my border punches, and shells and starfish die cut using a Sizzlit. There's also a little 'fun in the sun' sticker that was in a batch Lindsay passed along to me.

Supplies used:


  1. Gorgeous photos, as usual, and I love the idea to write on the transparency and the sticker to create a shaker box look!

  2. Love these pages. The blue is so restful and evokes a wonderful feeling of contentment. Your pennant overlays are beautiful!

  3. I love the white pen on the transparency. I'm going to try that technique soon! It looks great! All of your pictures are awesome, and I think the penants on each image are a great touch.

  4. Hi! Now you have to teach me how to do the picture links to products used AND to do replies on blog :) Pretty please!! I absolutely love your pages and the color scheme of blue that fits perfect with the beach. Also LOVE your pennants and wonderful embellie pocket! And isnt wonderful seeing your little one's reaction to certain things change as they get older! I love that! :)

  5. These pages are amazing! Love the journaling over the photo. Very creative!
