We have something special and different for today's Project Life post! Today we are teaming up with Basic Grey and showing you how well Elle's Studio and Basic Grey work together AND in Project Life!
I was super lucky to be able to work with Basic Grey's brand new Soleil collection. And can I just mention that Soleil and our own Sweet Life collection works perfectly together???
Since this was the first week of school, I used tags from our new Elle's Studio Back to School Printables. The "Schedule" tag and the "Back to School" tag are both found in this printable collection (which includes 24 tags!)
This week was incredibly busy for my family. Not only did we have the first week of school, we also hosted a HUGE party with my extended family (300+ people!), AND the next day I hosted my fifteen year high school reunion.
One of the most favorite attractions at our family party was a photo booth. I was really lucky to be able to collect the "extra" filmstrips and created an insert with some of my favorites. So I decided to create an insert featuring my FAVORITE film strip on the front, and a few other favorite of our family and friends on the back. I based the insert on the Pomelo paper from Basic Grey's Soleil Collection, and included tabs found in the Back to School Printables.
On the right page I used one the the Sweet Life 4x6 Journaling cards as a base for a photo. I trimmed my 4x6 photo to fit on the journaling card and journaled around the photo! I love how it allows me to include a large photo, but add something extra with the outline of the card.
One thing I realized while creating this week's Project Life layout, was that I need to document more... meaning, I feel I want to create a layout to fill in the gaps. It was such a FULL week. I love that every thing is included in the spread, however, I touched on my high school reunion with one photo. There's more to be said about this event and the friends I reconnected with. I LOVE that Project Life helps guide me on those events that need more attention.
It was so wonderful to combine Elle's Studio products with Basic Grey's Soleil collection. Please be sure to stop by Basic Grey's blog to see Melanie's Project Life spread using Elle's Studio and Basic Grey products (plus she is offering a nice giveaway:).
