The 3x4 and 2x3 cards are a free printable from Simply Stories. I just had  them printed at Staples. The little people are wood veneer pieces from Studio Calico that I colored white with an ink pad.

I am using the Project Life Seafoam Digital edition. I use PSE10 to put two journaling card on a 4x6 canvas that I can type my journaling in. I use the blog post as my journaling for the week. I can then upload them to Persnickety  or take them to Wal-mart to get printed. I prefer Persnickety but Wal-mart is local and I can get my pics in an hour or less. The week number circle is a freebie from September Blue.

Something I going to try to do more of this year is add our ephemera. I added the cards that Aunt Carol sent the girls. I just used a 12x12 page protector and cut is down to size and used washi tape the seal the cut edge. {I made sure that the page protector had two holes at the binding side so they were less floppy}

I put the cards in the page protectors open because Aunt Carol wrote notes to the girls and want them to be able look back read these little notes one day.

Here’s a look at the second card page. I included the receipt from Target to show what their gift cards were used to buy. The yellow hexagon paper is from the Seafoam Edition as well as the blue paper on the other card.

The two 3x4 cards and the 2013 badge in the center are from the Studio Calico Project Life kit. I doodled on the grey card with a pen and added washi tape to the hello card.

The 4x6 Journaling card is from Kristin’s blog here. I recolored the arrow a dark aqua color.

This year I have download quite a few free printable for my journaling card so that I can mix them in with my Seafoam edition. Links to most of the free journaling cards I will be using can be found on my Project Life Pinterest Board. I have recolored and added or subtracted things so they go better with the Seafoam kit.
