Project Life 2012 | Week Thirty-Nine

Welcome to Project Life 2012 | Week Thirty-Nine.

Lots of fun things happening on Becky's blog this week as Project Life celebrates 3 years. Check back tomorrow for a giveaway.

I thought about a doing a week all about Simon right now. I might do that in one of the coming weeks - do one week that highlights Simon, one that highlights Anna and one that highlights me.

As you can see I ended up mixing it up, but thought it would be fun to do sometime soon.

One insert that holds a drawing Anna did at school.

Here's an idea that I liked this week - if you have two photos from the same event next to each other you can essentially create "bookends" on the left and the right sides like I did below:

I used cut up 3x4 grid cards + washi tape (Freckled Fawn Yellow Airmail Washi Tape).

    Hi! Absolutely love your style, I check your work every week. It looks so effortless! May I ask, have you decided already the kit you want to work with next year? Clementine or something else?

    Thanks for reminding me to highlight one person per week! I need to do that now, since I slowed down with PL :)

    Thanks for the bookend tip. I quite often have a group of "event" photos together in a block. I'm pretty sure that only I can see that block!

    I love the splitting of the tomatoes picture. I know you do it regularly but every time I think I need to do it more often. thanks for sharing your project life with us.

    Your project life is BEAUTIFUL...and your giveaways are always SO awesome!! I purchased the clemetine never started Jan. 1st. (UGH life I usually do) so going to a crop this weekend. Always take lots of pictures, so some advice...do you think its silly to start it say maybee from this past June to next June? My daughter graduation from highschool in June so I thought maybee that would be significant maybee to back track and start there. What is your opinion? Thanks:)

      Hi, I'm currently (along with a 2012 PL) doing a backdated PL album of 2008. I took a lot of photo's then, and find it easy to fill the album. Just keep on taking photo's even if you're not working on your PL.

      I don't think that's silly at all - people start at all different points in the year. Sounds great!

    I love your style. One question, what font do you use to 'caption' your photos?

      Rosa -- I believe she uses Sentinel, which is a for-pay font, but Chunk Five (available from Font Squirrel) is very similar and free.

    2. Ali says…
      10/03/2012

      Yep - that's correct, I use Sentinel.

    Ali, love the pages -- the weekend rundown is great, and I really like the bookending idea. Curious what the source is for the HELLO sun on your tomato photo....
