Weekly Scrapbooking: A Spread

Thanks to the inspiration of Becky Higgins and her Project Life system, I document our family’s memories weekly.ย What this looks like is me using the big 12×12 albums from either Project Life or We R Memory Keepers and various pocket page protectors+pocket cards or paper cut down to fill the pockets. Other people document their lives monthly, but I take way too many photos to do that! ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t usually use a ton of actual Project Life brand stuff, but when Maggie Holmes teamed up with Becky Higgins again to make a Gather core kit, I was all over it.ย The core kits are REALLY big (616 cards!!!) so Andrea and I split it, giving us each 2-4 of each card. I wanted to make a layout with all (or mostly all) Gather cards, so when I came across this week (week 9) and how soft and neutral the colors of my photos were, I knew Gather would be perfect for it.

Like I said, I tried to use only cards/embellishments from Gather.

I did end up using a few stamps from Elle’s Studio’s Feel Better stamp set, because we were dealing with a long week of a nasty stomach virus. BLEK.

When I was looking through my other embellishments to see what I needed to finish off the layout, I came across these awesome chipboard number tags from Dear Lizzy’s Saturday collection and knew the “9” would be perfect for my week! (The fat light, blue label behind it is a printable from an old Gossamer Blue kit.)

I loved Gather as a collection and I loved it as a kit, too! It turned my week into a really pretty layout that I love looking back at!

Thanks for stopping by, friends!
