Last post for today 🙂
I finished up my March pages and only have April/May to catch up on now!
Here is the whole spread ~since we had Amber’s birthday and my nephew’s birthday, I went with a family theme with the filler cards.
A close up of the left page~ the top right picture say “This is how we spend many Saturday nights”. It’s a picture of Amber, my nephew and stepdad. On this page, I used two cards from the Project Life Dogs mini kit and one card from a SN@P pack.
And the right page ~ the small pic on the top is our daffodils starting to come up…finally lol! It took an extra 2-3 weeks to come up and the next week they froze and had snow on them. I used two cards from SN@P packs and the large journal card is from the Project Life Midnight kit.
Have a great night!
The year is almost half over…how scary is that?!
I did my January pages and part of February in February, then dropped this project like a hot potato lol.
I got hung up on how to include them in my annual album. At first I wanted to have the left side, then the traditional layouts, then the right side so everything would be chronological. I decided it would look silly with the pages apart, plus I switched after the cover page to the 8×12 pages.
I finally decided to put the PL pages in the front of the album and the traditional layouts behind them. Now that I decided how to work it out in my mind, I can continue with my pages.
Here is my completed February spread~
I used Design Page G and a mixture of kits: Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party and Honey, along with the flower card from a PL kit that I can’t remember the name of!
Hoping to get March done too…but realized I am low on one ink, figures right?
That’s all for now!
Last year I did a few Project Life pages and then lost interest…doing weekly pages just didn’t work for me so I put my kit aside. Lots of people in one of my Yahoo groups have been doing them, either for a year or just starting out and I was intrigued again. My friend Barbara has been including summary cards of her weeks/month and it inspired me to do “highlight” pages for each month this year. I don’t need to record every detail but I do want to save some pictures that wouldn’t necessarily be scrapped otherwise and I really want to keep lists of my scrappy & reading accomplishments in my album this year.
Here is my 2014 cover page ~ Most of my pages are using the Midnight kit but there could be a card or two from the Seafoam kit…I wasn’t very careful when I was putting these together to write things down! I cut the Hello 2014 from THIS Silhouette file. Throughout all of the pages, I used Thickers and wood veneers from Studio Calico. Also to note this page is using the Design A page protector.
This is my January spread ~ The source for the Disney hotel picture is www.disneyworld.com. I couldn’t find any on the PhotoPass cds I have.
and a closeup of the January calendar. The paper I used is so pretty but it’s hard to capture through the pocket!
Here is a close up of the right side ~ I used the stamped panel from my January calendar in one of the pockets. I think I will do this with each month’s panel. I’m happy to find another use for them! The card with the scissors on it is from the Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party kit. I also want to note this is the Design G page protector. I think I like this size the best so far and need to find more.
Thanks for looking!
I finally sat down tonight to scrap Week 2 of Project Life! I’ve had the pictures printed for over a month now and ended up having to reprint one that went MIA. I am only sharing the left page as the right page is a bit more personal.
I used the Seafoam kit, a few stamps, letter stickers, washi tape and some hoarded embellishments to finish off my page. I hope now that I got over the hurdle of Week 2 that I can catch up on the last 8 weeks soon.
