Project Life 2013: Week 3

Hello Week 3 :) I think you may be my favorite yet! Super simple, clean & graphic...love love love! Its funny though, the more I try to keep things simple the longer it takes me to finish! Why I do not know, but it is true :P

Here is a look at our week:

I changed up the date card a bit, using the banner flags as a perfect resting place for the date! This week, I also changed the way I date my photos, because I fell in love with these date stamps, by Scotty Girl Designs:

They give the look of a real date stamp (which I love!) and they are totally versatile for whatever project/layout you might be working on! 

The 1st 3x4 card is from the seafoam core kit, I just recolored it & added a brush by Karla Dudley to coordinate with Mondays photo. The 2nd 3x4 card is a freebie card I had pinned on Pinterest and knew I had to use (I will be using this one on a monthly basis!) The 3rd 3x4 card  is a free printable via Erica Hernandez. I had been searching for an ampersand card, ever since I saw the one studio calico had one in their January PL kit and happened upon this one by Erica. Ever the trendsetter, she had this one created last June :D Love it!! the 4th 3x4 card is available in the Baby Edition for Him.

The 1st 3x4 card here is from the Bridgeport childhood edition, The 2nd 3x4 card is from the  Notable Quotables: Love no. 1 by Simply Tiffany Studios, The 3rd & 4th cards are from of the Baby Edition for Him. The cute little instagram camera on card 4, is available via Cathy Zielske! The bottom right 4x6 card showcases some of my instagram favorites using the hipster | instant photo template & word art. Love this kit: the instant camera frames & of course Three Paper Peonies amazing word art = its a new fav!

So that is a look at our week & my version of how it all went down :P If you have questions leave me a comment & I hope I can help out :) Before I sign off I want to share a Weekly PL Tip: This recoloring elements tutorial by Karla Dudley is amazing! If you are new to digital and want to learn a great tip/trick, or if you wondered just how I get all my cards/elements to match so well this will show you how!! Definitely set aside 10 minutes today to watch & learn!

  1. WOW, your work is simply amazing! Love the clean and crisp look of your album...truly inspirational. :)

  2. Love, love, love your PL spreads every week. I need to get off my butt and knock a couple of weeks out! NOW.

  3. Love this layout. I just went to Erica's site and downloaded the printable pdf of the ampersand...how did you get that to work in photoshop? I would love to turn it into a digital element...heather www.hgjphotography.com

    1. Heather I just opened the pdf in elements and used it as a clipping mask on the PL template :)

  4. I am a big fan of your style - awesome PL (I am on my third year and love it) I LOVE your 4 x 6 card with the instagram photos - I am going to buy the kit but where did you get the card part "This is what life looks like via instagram" I'd love to make a similar card.....

    1. Thank you so much Leanne! You can find that card in my shop here: http://jenniferhignitedesigns.bigcartel.com/product/set-of-4-4x6-instagram-templates
