I did a bit more out of the box with Week 2. I used my Silhouette Cameo, a baseball card protector & of course LOTS of pictures!
The first page has alot of journaling thanks to the baseball sheet I added in! I had one extra block even so I pulled out my Cameo to create the Play-Doh image.
I googled around until I found a picture of the Play-Doh logo that was clear enough to trace within Silhouette Studio and after cleaning up the trace a bit I used Sketch Pens to trace the image. Then I pulled out my Stampin’ Up! markers & colored in the dark red area. I meant to cut it out the right size to just slip into the pocket, but I think I used the baseball card size instead of where it was actually going….. but I actually like the striped layer behind it better anyway. Mistakes are awesome sometimes!
Here is the baseball sheet protector. I had ALOT of pictures this week. So rather than choose I printed more. I used Bazzill Paper again to make a journaling tag to fit & also to make labels for the edges of a few pictures. I cut the labels & rounded the corners before adhering them…. if you want to copy this, adhere them & then round the picture & label together to get a better result.
Can you tell Play-Doh playe da large part this week? It’s everywhere!
We also had not-quite-our-first-snow…. not quite because it wasn’t enough to “count” in the weather world. For a little guy like mine it counted though. We headed outside in PJ’s BEFORE breakfast to play! Good thing too because it wasn’t around for very long.

I used my Cameo again to make the SWIM title here. I added a few details in my own handwriting lower on the card.
I hope you are enjoying these! I am enjoying the fact that every week or two I force myself to sit down at the computer to go through pictures & do all of my picking and post-processing which includes uploading them for the Grandparents to look at & print. Every month or so I sit down & edit them into printable 4x6s (for the vertical pictures I combine 2 to a 4×6 print or a few more to a 12×12 if I am printing the baseball sheet like this week). Considering I STILL haven’t printed anything from 2011 except the 12×12 finished pages & my December Daily prints that’s a huge step forward for me!
