Project Life with Sesil Cratin featuring She Said Collection


Sesil here to show you my project life pages.  I have to say.. this is my first year to work on project life and I  am starting to enjoy documenting the everyday.  I have been journaling in my book so I can keep up with what we do during the week. I have my pictures sent off to get printed.  So I am a couple of weeks behind.  But that is okay.  It is easy to catch up.  I love using Teresa Collins Collections with my project life.  It makes it easy with all the fun papers and the embellishments. 




The joy about the page protector layout style is that anything goes. I used the She Said collection to work on my Week 4 layout.  The colors coordinated with the pictures for this week.  I like how the pinks pulled the color from my daughter's coat.  Notice the yellow in my coffee cup goes great with the yellow in the collection.  And the blue flower paper coordinates with the blue in the art project.  Using the word paper in my layout pulls all the colors together giving my layout a cohesive look. 
 I loved the glitter envelope.  I used it to store my little receipts for the week.  It didn't fit in the actual page protector so I just adhered it to the TOP of the page protector.  It works for me and I like the pop of glitter on my page.

This week we didn't do much as a family.  So I filled my page with a progressive picture of the artwork that I helped out in my daughter's class.  It was a fun way to show how interactive the art project worked that week.


I love working with the page protectors because anything goes and there is not thinking about layout.

My favorite part of it all is that I am using my own handwriting. I am not a fan of my handwriting but at least my kids will see it when they get older and there is something about me all in this album.

I hope you enjoyed the peek into some of our lives with project life with the Design Team.  I know I loved seeing what everyone has been up with the team on a personal level.
Make sure to leave a comment on today's blog post for a chance to win this weeks prize pack.  We will announce the winner on Monday's post.
Tell next time. Happy crafting.

    1. Thank you. It was not intentional that the pictures matched the line. I just think the collection was PERFECT for this week. It usually doesn't coordinate.

  12. How appropriate for using the He Said She Said collection for documenting your kids! Like that you can use different patterns together and the colors work together. Love that big blue flower! Using your children's art work in PL is a good way to keep and display their masterpieces forever too!!
