Summer Pleasures | A Project Life Style Layout

I’ve been experimenting lately with layouts in my Project Life album that are not date specific (i.e. Week 36 or August). Last month I shared a layout documenting the 46 days leading up to my new job. This month I wanted to share a summer layout with random photos from throughout the summer, using the Project Life divided page protectors.

When it comes to Project Life, I hate to ever use the words “caught up” because I just don’t want to put pressure on the process. I’m happy with whatever layouts and weeks or months get into the album. And if some weeks or months never get created, oh well. But I use the term here because I haven’t created a monthly or weekly spread for this album since March. I have photos, notes and ephemera saved so one day, I’ll get to it. But in the meantime, I like pages with a theme (so to speak) that allows me to get some photos and journaling done.

I used a variety of products here. The journaling cards are from Clementine core kit. The summery 3×4 cards are from the Me And My Big Ideas summer card set from Michael’s. I also used Sunshine and Cruise papers from Fancy Pants ‘ Down By The Shore collection and a variety of embellishments from my stash. I am still using my favorite BIC Mark-It Color Collection Ultra Fine pens for my journaling.

You may have noticed that one of the photos is missing. I haven’t had time lately to upload photos to an online service for printing so I printed these at home. As the last photo was printing, I heard a screeching sound from my printer and an error message that one of the ink cartridges malfunctioned. I hope a new ink cartridge fixes the issues but I have a bad feeling. Ugh. First my laptop crashes. Now my photo printer. It’s a good thing it all hit AFTER the new job started.

Any fun plans for the weekend? I am going to try and schedule nothing and go nowhere. Doesn’t sound like fun, but I have so much to do it would be nice to just have a weekend at home so I can accomplish something!

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Hope your printer is ok!
    Fun PL pages. And I am the same way.
    Whatever I get to, I do!
    Have a great weekend 🙂

  2. No! No printer breakdown!! I hate it when that happens. Here’s hoping that it’s just the cartridge and nothing more.

  3. I love your attitude, and approach to PL, Tammy! These are great pages!

  4. Great pages to capture moments of your summer! Enjoy your relaxing weekend!

  5. I love how you mix and match different cards and kits, that is where I really struggle. Yours looks really put together. Also, this is what I love about this project, it’s whatever you want it to be, or not be. Looks great Tammy!

  6. Great spread – I think the theme idea works great here! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
