Project Life Summer 2014 | 02 with Sandlot

Sandlot is now available to Studio Calico subscribers and today I want to share the second update to my Project Life Summer Handbook. Clicking on the photos will take you to my gallery where you can see the layouts + closeups a bit larger than here on the blog.
Please note : at the time of this posting, links to kits and coordinating items will only work for Studio Calico subscribers. Sandlot will be available to the general public at 12 midnight EST tonight, the evening of July 27th. 

I am so used to doing a 2-page spread in my 12x12 album each week, I wasn't sure what to expect with the 6x8 size. I knew it wasn't going to be just a spread a week, but more 'documenting the moments and events' in whatever order worked best for me.
That being said, I finished eight Handbook spreads from the last month with the Sandlot kits. The journaling cards (and the printables) are awesome this month, plus there are some new embellishments we've not seen in the Project Life kits before.

As far as my process goes, I've felt a lot less pressure on my part to photograph every little thing but I'm still getting the highlights of our summer in here, as well as plenty of journaling.

Here are my first four spreads :

I've already started my shopping too! These are the items I grabbed to be shipped with my scrapbook kit subscription :
Kit extras that I used and loved this month include the Hello Love craft die. This is just one of three dies in the set. The paper I used here is part of the 4x6 paper pad :

I'll share the rest of my Sandlot spreads here on the blog next week. You can see all of my Summer Handbook blog updates here. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. These pages just scream "summer". I always like how you use the contents of the kit in such an interesting way.
