I am so excited to share Week 7 of my Project Life. I am completely in love with this spread, but it's no surprise really, since I mostly used products from the February '12 BYOC at The Lilypad, one of my favorite collections ever! I added some of my recent purchases (Thickers alpha and the new Dear Lizzy release) to boot! Plus it was Valentine Week, and everything came together just right. I finished the spread Friday night, and took pictures Saturday morning (with good light for once!).
The biggest challenge for me this week was to fit in all the photos. I started printing out a few filler cards from the BYOC, and since I loved them all, I didn't want to leave any out. ;) Note to self: print out pictures out first, next time! :) Here's a closer look to the pages:
I used some pieces from my new Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection here. The strawberry paper, the pink paper, and the pink sticker alpha. I'm so happy I got it just in time to use with this week, since the colors matched so well!
And here are a few of my favorite details of this spread.
Once again, my title card borrowed heavily from a card I recently made. I just love this foam alpha, and I'm glad I overcame my hoarding tendency and used it. :)
These two pictures were taken with Instagram on DH's iPhone (I just made him install it, and we're loving it!). ;) Here are a few of my favorite cards this week:
1. I am completely in love with the design of the Starbucks Valentine cup!
2. These wood veneers came in just this week along with my Dear Lizzy order, so I had to use them right away. ;) I sprayed this one with a light pink mist.
3. This card is inspired by a movie we watched and loved. I think it's so cute and in fact I turned it into a card for DH as well! (but of course the first thing DH said when he saw it was that the blue birds are not parrots as they are supposed to. Ugh!!)
4. I love the idea of recording our weight on this pretty scale! I must do it again! I also loved using the little journaling pieces on top of the cards.
