Project Life

This week’s Project Life covers the week of July 30-August 5.

Last week I mentioned looking back at past weeks in your Project Life album and noting a few things  you love.  One thing I enjoyed looking at from the past year was current events that I included in my Project Life week.  It’s really cool to see a mix of what’s going on in the world and news next to what’s going on with my family.

So for this week I added a few current events in my Project Life album.  First, obviously, is the Olympics!  I documented the Olympics a few different ways–  first I made the Olympic rings from retired Elle’s Studio tags that I still had in my stash!  I used various lined circle tags and punched the center of the tag using a 2″punch. 

And guess what? Elle made these circle journaling tags into a printable file and they are now available in the shop!  You can print these immediately for all your Olympic documentation! (and they are classic journaling tags that can be used over and over in Project Life!)

The printable lined circles can be punched out with a 2 inch punch, and if you want to punch the center out to create the rings, I would use a 1.75 circle punch.

I also documented the Olympics by added the cover of USA Today featuring Gabby Douglas the day after her individual gold medal.  I also journaled a bit about what my kids were saying about the Olympics and their interest level.
On the backside I included the sports section of the newspaper.  I love the swimming photo!  I used a 12×12 page protector to hold the newspaper but trimmed it slightly and adhered it with washi tape.  There is a paper clip to help hold it in place.
I used quite a bit of The Sweet Life collection in this week’s Project Life spread– which is NOW AVAILABLE in the shop!
