Hello, welcome to my Project Life 2013
I am hoping to have lots of fun with this project this year
I am doing it differently this year.. Using just an
8.5 x 11 binder, 4 inch D-ring that I purchased from Staples.
The binder comes with a clear pocket on the front.. this is where
I added a piece of white cardstock and my from cover design.
I also did the side of my binder.
The sheet protectors are a heavy duty page protector by Avery that I get in the
office supply section at Walmart. the monthly inserts I am using are
Martha Stewart .. These I cut to only have half the size, the top will have
the month ( Simple Stories Sn@p) and the bottom will have a Family Photo of
the 4 of us.. every month I will try to repeat this.. to see how we all change during the month.
I was also going to do some of My Artwork throughout this years album.
I want it to do a monthly banner to start the month off ... I think it will also be
awesome to get some of my stamp designs on these pages..
On the inside of this I have a collage of the last 2 weeks of December.. these I am using an app
on my ipad called PhotoShake.. this is also how I will keep track of my weeks so I never get confused
about the photo's. Cause reality is I will get behind at some point.. I know myself.. haha
So here is Week 1...DONE!!!!!
These are both done on 8.5x11 white 110 lb cardstock that I get from Staples.
You get a package of 250 sheet for less than $20.00 ... I think I have enough.
Some of these elements are from the class I am taking called Day by Day
Studio Calico was offering it last year ( the class in now closed) . I got some
wonderful print outs, cut files and lots of inspiration from many designers, oh
and a free stamp which I am hoping to have by the end of the week.
Then I also made some small cards and other elements myself.
Every week I will have a pocket ( these are from Simple Stories Sn@p) I will also
make my own.. these pockets will hold all my journaling that I am actually
typing everyday.. I am going to love my typewriter!!
It will also hold my collage photo from the week
I really love this alot..
I will also add some quotes once in a while if I see something that
speaks to me.. this one I saw in the Project Lifers group on facebook.
It was one someone found on Pinterest.
So I am keeping it simple this year.. my photos are all Instagram style
so they will be squares instead of 4x6 .. much easier to use
and I can print 4 at a time on one sheet of photo paper ( satin finish Staples brand) ..
which is GREAT!!!
Hope you are all having a great week and hope to keep up weekly with this.
I already have my next week ready for photo's.. that will be the great thing about this
Project Life.. I can set up pages ahead of time, then just add the photo's .
I also have a Freebie for Project Life here.
I will try to have a freebie every couple of months.
Thanks for coming by.
