Project Life 2012 | Week Forty-Eight

Welcome to Project Life 2012 | Week Forty-Eight.

Just seeing that the Baby Editions of Project Life are now available on Amazon. These would make awesome gifts for someone you love or for yourself. Check them out:

Project Life Core Kit – Baby Edition for Her

Here’s a look at my Week Forty-Eight:

I thought last week might end up to be a no-photo week but I ended up adding a couple photos.

I’ve gotten a few questions recently about how to approach December Daily and Project Life at the same time. For me, there’s always more than one story to tell and because I don’t necessarily do something for Project Life daily. I often include multiple things from the same day across the spread.

I don’t have a specific plan in advance. I use Project Life often as a way to collect stuff from life – receipts, notes, cards, etc – and I use December Daily to capture an overall spirit of the season and the first 25 days of December. There’s no right or wrong.

This was the week before I left for New York – working on that one right now.

Bring On The Twinkle is from my Christmas Story Journal Cards. The December 2 card is from the December Daily 3×4 Journal Card set.

    That photo of Simon! Looks like he was just cracking up! Like the contrast of your DD being so holiday-ish, and PL showing the other side of life, the normal side of the season.

    I love the Christmas story journal cards. Any way next year we can have them in a horizontal format PDF files? Thanks!

    the way you chose to document the iphone falling in the toilet is hysterical! i love how it mixes in with all your other stories, big and small!

    I recently washed my iPod Nano. I was able to save it by putting it in a bag of white rice.

    Love the “splash” card!

    Simon looks so happy in that photo! And I love the iPhone story… This happened to one of the guys I work with about a month ago as well. Rice ended up working with his. I think you get the better deal for it, ending up with a whole new phone, though! Great layout!

      Hi Mary,
      The ‘Cherish the everyday’ title card came in the Cobalt PL Kit from BH. I think I may have 1 or 2 left over if you would like them? I can have a look when i pull my stuff out this weekend if you would like

    Just curious if you are going to be buying the new Seafoam edition of PL when it comes out. Or are you just going to be sticking with your stash?

    Hi Ali,
    always love to see your “project life” spreads!
    Can you tell me what font you use for writing on your photos – I like it so much.
