Project Life 2012: Week 27

Welcome to Project Life 2012, week twenty seven.

I'm still a week behind, but I have all my photos for week 28 printed and in their correct slots, so it's all a matter of adding the scrappy stuff.

Here's my full layout for week 27.

This week was less elaborate than I'd intended but I think it came out kinda great. I started with my title card, centered around July 4th, and kept with the same paper pack throughout, which made it all come together nicely.

I included pictures from the 4th of July, which we spent at home, relaxing, and in the center of our town, and pictures from the birthday party for my good friend SarahBeth's daughter, Evangeline. I also added a screenshot and videos from the first day Austin ate with a spoon all by himself, and a really cool sky shot I took with my iPhone one day last week. The sun was peeking out of the clouds and it just struck me, so I stopped and snapped a pic. 

Here's a shot of that title card I mentioned:

I used the Americana paper stack and matching border strips to create this card. I also used the sewing machine my mom just gave me and stitched in red across the side. This was, believe it or not, my very first sewing attempt without supervision. I say believe it or not not because it looks good (it so does not) but that my mom sews for a living and I simply have no sewing talent. I've done some stuff in home ec in middle school, but I just can't do this on my own, typically. I think because I'm not using fabric and all I have to do is stitch straight in reverse (and I have the option of lots of patterned stitches with this machine too), it's easier to me. 

I like these 3 cards, joined together with one of the borders from the Americana collection.

New this week are these awesome stamps from Studio G that go perfectly with Project Life. Love them, and anticipate using them often!

That's it! Be sure to stop by The Mom Creative tomorrow and check out everyone else's layouts from the week!

Not pictured in the supply list is the Studio G Series 17 Clear Stamp, and a border punch from EK Success.
