Weekly Life Project Week 3&4

Here's another couple of pages of my Weekly Life Project and due to the nature of the seams in the inserts and double sided cards to go in them.... budgeting for this type of scrapbooking comes to the fore!

A few weeks ago, I showed you over at Scrap Therapy 'Week 2' page which were set in 6x4's in portrait style. When that page was turned over, the cards I used from
Simple Stories: products:
100 Days of Summer Signature Elements #1412
100 Days of Summer Signature Elements #1411
100 Days of Summer Signature Elements #1410
had wonderful reverse sides on them....all ready to be scrapped upon! Now that's cost saving!

Here's what resulted:
I've just added in:
MME Lost&Found3 Oliver Chipboard Elements
Prima Lifetime Collection Love Tags Paper
Tim Holtz Trimmings -Seam Binding

The next page is a different format. You can have many kinds of page formats if you choose the 'Mixed Page' inserts. I'm working with 12x12 and the page below is split into quarters. This is where all kinds of 6x6 papers could be used! Its great to use up stash or you could use the boarder type papers, and then there's the choice of cutting up a 12x12 piece into four pieces :wink:

I've gone with the latter and I've found this size is fabulous to scrap - four little 6x6 LO's put together!
WRMK Cotton Tail Seedlings Paper
Prima Lifetime Collection Love Tags Paper
Prima Tiny Alpha Printery
Basic Grey Off Beat Brads

I've stuck to trying not to put to much product on, and keeping it pretty basic and so far so good!

:biggrin: :biggrin:

Great PL pages - I really like the look of the vertical 6 x 4's. I need to remember to snap more pictures that way.
