You may notice a pretty consistent theme this month with all my Office Hours projects… they all feature Jack. I just couldn’t help it. What I really love about the Studio Calico PL kits in general is that they truly are helping me stay on track (well, reasonably anyway – let’s just say I don’t feel too behind). Also, it makes me realize that if I do want to play quick catch up, it’s fairly easy to do so, even with a limited amount of time – while Jack naps, for example. I am spending less time worrying about how each week fits together, and just going with it. My newest problem is actually having too many photos from to sift through. These couple weeks’ photos were printed by Persnickety Prints – I have found that printing the same photo both in 3×4 and 4×6 is really the way to go, especially since I can always hand off the pictures I don’t use to family members. Then I don’t have to fret about not having the right size. And if I find myself missing a particular photo, I can use my Epson XP-950 Wireless Photo Printer. Using the Project Life main kit only:Here’s a spread utilizing the Project Life kit & Report add-on, where I used a photo for the title card. Ann-Marie Espinoza took some photos of Jack that are absolutely irresistible. There was stitching involved because it’s something I can plan out ahead of time. It’s therapeutic while we sit on the sofa and watch tv in the evenings. Now for the Office Hours Scrapbook kits. Using only the main kit, I created 2 layouts, this one and the one at the bottom of the post (along with the video). At first I wasn’t sure about including floral patterns in a layout for a boy, but then I got over it really quickly after seeing how good it looks.
And as you can see, I went a bit overboard (sorry buddy) and managed to use the fantastic floral paper that I am just crazy about as a background for this layout using the main and add-ons. Baby photobooth pics (taken with the Pocketbooth app printed with the Epson XP-950 Wireless Photo Printer) might be my newest obsession. The app also offers a print & ship option for $1.99 a strip. Using only the To Do add-on (my favorite), I created this layout. Here’s a little video showing how this Main kit only layout came together
