Project Life 2011 Catch Up + Month 2 Baby Pages

The Mom Creative

I am taking a monthly approach to Project Life, so since January is still not complete, I am using Project Life Tuesday at the Mom Creative to "catch up" on my 2011 album and make progress on my sons' baby albums. You can find out more about Project Life HERE. Here are some pages I have completed this past week:

Project Life 2011 - Weeks of October 23rd & 30th and November 6th
(This spread is actually 3 different weeks.  I did not have a lot of pictures from those weeks so I just combined 3 into one spread.)

Close up of 1st Page
(I used Design G for this page.)

Close up of 2nd Page
(I used Design D for this page. I know there has been some discussion about not having horizontal journaling cards, but I found these three designs that worked well from the Turquoise edition.)

Back of the 2nd Page
(I decided to show the back of the 2nd page (despite the fact I am missing the ultrasound pictures I need to scan in) because I know people have commented on how the Title Cards only work for horizontal slots. Here was my solution.  I used cardstock from the Turquoise edition and cut it to 4x6.  Then I cut one of the Title Cards where I could still use the writing block and see the month that this spread related.  This week happened to only be one page and is actually the end of my first album.)

Supplies used: Project Life Turquoise kit and cardstock and Becky Higgins Photo Pocket Pages

Eli's Baby Album - Month 2
Pages 1 & 2

Supplies used: Becky Higgins' Baby Kit (sold by Creating Keepsakes) & Becky Higgins Photo Pocket Pages, Grid Journaling cards and Journaling card from the Amber Edition

In addition to the above, I also created a traditional scrapbook page this week.  This is my first in about a year! I had 3 pictures from different months of Eli with some of his cousins that I got after those weeks were completed (at least picture wise), so I decided to create a layout.  To make it fast, I limited myself to only using paper from the Turquoise edition since it is going in my 2011 album.  I did use some letter stickers and rubons I already had.  This is probably one of the fatest traditional pages I have ever made, and I really like it.  I credit Project Life for helping me to be ok with a simple layout.  Here it is:

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great pages... All of them. You have been busy. The colors are all great.

    1. Thanks - I have had some time with maternity leave, a VERY good baby and a toddler in daycare 3 days a week! I am sure my progress will slow when I head back to work!

  2. Very nice! I am going to start working on 2011 this week. I've heard lots of people who are going back and working on past years. Thanks for sharing the various things you are working on.

    1. I am trying to stay motivated to get 2011 done though I have now started 2012 and am really loving using the Cobalt edition. Thanks!
