Project Life 2014: Intro Page Album 2 and Week 27

It's time for another Project Life Tuesday, and yes this one is LONG overdue. I don't know what it is about summer, but every single year I get behind in Project Life in July and August. The more I think about that, I guess that statement is not entirely true. My kids are home in the summer, and I spend more time making memories and photographing them, than actually putting those moments into a scrapbook.

Now that the kids are back in school and I have a few hours each day in a quiet home without making a snack every 30 minutes (or resolving a conflict, ) I am ready to get caught up and get this show back on track. Let's just reflect on that for a minute...yes I have a quiet house and I am so happy. I love my kids, I love summer, but come the end of August, I want my house back. Truth. I digress...back to Project Life...

I don't stress too much about getting caught up in Project Life. I have been behind before in my Project Life pages and managed to catch up on 21 weeks (or beginning/ ending pages) in only 5 weeks last fall. You might be asking yourself right about now, how did you do that?  I have a blog post HERE that talks about just that. It IS possible to catch up on Project Life, you can do it!

Today I am ready to start sharing my second album for 2014, for the first year ever I am getting all of my Project Life pages into two albums, and I am super excited about that! I have a lot of pages to share today and of course lots of pictures too.

Intro Page

My second Project Life album unfolds with a fun page full of some favorite photos from the month of July. I used the October Afternoon 3 x 3" page protectors and just trimmed off one row from the right side.

*I used my sewing machine to stitch two of the pockets closed (filled with 
Studio Calico wood veneer and chipboard pieces from Simple
 Stories and Crate Paper Open Road.)
*This awesome Transparency was hand drawn by Nicole Reaves and is 
from the Studio Calico South of Market Collection.
*Ampersand paperclip is from Maya Road and stitched onto the paper.

Pages Two and Three with Insert Front
I used two Design A page protectors with a Design A page protector cut in half 
as an extra insert (sandwiched between the two pages.)
