project life: week 17

Week 17 was a fabulous and fun week because it included lots of time with cousins and a crawfish boil! Hard to top that! Once again, I love how the colors of clementine came together to look so beautiful with my photos. I took a lot of pics of my layout this week so let's get right to it.

the instagrammed stamp (I purchase the stamp from Studio Calico, but I can't find it in the shop so I'm not sure if it's still available)


a few more instagrams...


and another 4x6 pocket (the label that can be found here).

  8. I love the project life series... you make it look amazing!

    I have always wanted to try doing it, but I am so bad at printing off photos. Do you print photos at home or order prints?

    1. The first two years I did project life I ordered all my prints. I ordered online at either smugmug or shutterfly every two or three weeks. I would sometimes write out a few journaling cards before I even had the pictures just to stay current. Then last November I purchased a photo printer and started printing all my photos at home. I love being able to print and then immediately start working on my layouts. It has definitely made it easier to keep up and also to print odd sized photos when I want.

      If you have any other questions about how I print or anything just let me know!

  9. Hoping you see this question...wondering what type of paper you are printing your photos on and also how often do you think you are replacing your inks on your printer? Just thinking about the print at home option....thanks :)

    1. I have an epson printer so I use epson ultra premium glossy photo paper. I've heard it's best to use the same brand paper as your printer. I just started printing at home last November. The ink that came in the printer didn't last all that long. I don't remember exactly when, but I replaced it with the higher capacity ink and I haven't had to replace it again yet. I think it's starting to get low. I would guess the high capacity lasts about six or seven months when printing photos for project life and a few traditional layouts here and there. I don't use my printer for much else. I would say it's definitely not cheaper to print at home, but the quality appears to be just as good and it's much more convenient for project life and scrapbooking. It really made a huge difference in being able to stay current more easily.
