Project Life | Week Twenty Two

20140604-IMG_5622.jpg 
Week 22 of Project Life is in the books... er, album. I finally tackled some of those Studio Calico kits that have been piling up. I mostly a combination of the May Camelot and the April Bluegrass Project Life kits. Love the soft, sweet colors this week. A bit of a departure from the bright rainbow-filled spreads from the past weeks birthday celebrations.20140604-IMG_5619.jpg 
Not a lot of embellishing this week. Some burlap Thickers to mark the week. A little wood veneer cloud from a past Take Ten kit and some pink jewels from the Studio Calico Camelot kit.

I created a little watercolor map of Green Lake where we went our paddle boating one day last week. I did this by using the amazing site Maps Stamen. You can input any location in the world and have a watercolor map created for you. Then you can specify the size and download it. I made it into a 3x4 inch size.

I included a sheet of paper that my daughter has been practicing her writing on. I put a little pull tab on top of the sheet and tucked it behind the journaling. This is such a sweet moment in time and I know I will treasure this little slip of paper in the future.

You like that little QR Code card up there at the top? Well, my next blog post will be a tutorial on how to include videos in your Project life album using QR codes. And I may or may not include a little freebie printable Project Life card, too. (Spoiler alert: I will.) 'Til then!

  1. I love love LOVE the watercolor map! That is the neatest thing ever. (I can't believe it's free either!) I'm going to use it for everything now. I also really like your daughter's handwriting in there. That'll be so neat to look back on. I'm definitely going to do that once my little one is able to write. We've put some of her "drawings" in there, but I can't wait for real handwriting! Beautiful pages!

    1. I know, right?!? I'm map-obsessed, so I'm always looking for ways to incorporate maps into my layouts. And I love the tangible items like drawings and handwriting in Project Life. I know I will cherish these a few years from now. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This layout is beautiful! So many creative ideas :) Could I ask where that feather printed card / patterned paper came from?

    1. Thanks so much! Oh, man... I had to dig to see where that paper was from. It's from the Studio Calico 4x6 paper pad from January 2014. It says that it is from October Afternoon. I did find this though: http://www.acherryontop.com/shop/hot/7/179949
