Project Life | Week 22 (With Free Cut File)

I actually had these pictures ready to share last week, but I hadn't uploaded the cut file yet, so I decided to wait to post it.  It works out since I'm still in a creative slump over week 23.

Full Spread.

Left Side.  We ran in the Cotton Row 10k on Monday of this week.  I didn't bring my camera because how many pictures of us before or after a race do we really need?  I did snag a picture online of the flag flying over the start/finish line, though.  I made the star filler card using the penultimate app and then recoloring it in PSE. 

Right Side.  I am in love with those close-ups of Lincoln and Mason.  I'm experimenting with my new DSLR, and while I'm still using Creative Auto, I'm loving the results.  The "today is a gift" card is recolored from the digital Jade kit.  I finally broke down and purchased a few filler card sets, and I'm in love. 

And do you see that little "RECIPE" tab?  Here's a closer look at what I did there.  I made a 3x4 tabbed card in PSE, opened it in silhouette and added the text.  Then I printed out the recipe slightly smaller than 4x6, folded it, and used glue-dots to attach to the tabbed card.  It was actually really easy, and I'm pretty pleased with the results.  I need to buy some more plain cardstock, though.  Ha!

And I thought some of you might also like to include some recipes in your albums, so I've included a link to download the silhouette file (for personal use only, please):

Thanks for looking!  You can check out my other Project Life pages here.

  1. I love what you did with that recipe tab! Very Very cute! And I totally understand when you say you need more cardstock! I need to find a good variety pack and just bite the bullet and get it! I never have the right color I want. :) I really liked the 'today is a gift,' card as well.

  2. K, now I want the recipe for the cake :)

  3. Thanks for the freebie, shall definately make use of it!

    I bought the co-ordinating 6x4 and 3x4 cardstock for the Clementine edition and am loving its versatility.

  4. What a great idea! I love including recipes in my album.
    I also love how you included your race, but without any pre/post run photos.
