Project Life 2013 | Intro Page

Hello Project Life 2013. So excited to be embarking on this project again.

I'm a couple weeks behind so if you haven't started yet and you're still thinking about it there's definitely time. In reality you can begin anytime, but I get the desire to start at the beginning of the year. I'll be sharing the spreads for my first couple of weeks throughout this week.

I love putting together the intro page.

Here's a look at my last three years (click on the photo to go to the actual post for supplies and my thoughts on the process at each of the different points in time):

And here's my intro page for 2013:

This year I'm using the Seafoam kit as the base of my project. As I've done in past years, I combine a lot of different elements - some from the kit, some that are my own digital/printable designs available from Designer Digitals, some from the Studio Calico Project Life kit, and other goodies from my stash.

I use Design A page protectors as the base spread for each week.

For my 2013 intro page I included three photo: one of me, one of Simon, and one of Anna. I added one wood veneer star to each photo.

For printing at home I use the Epson PictureMate Show for the vast majority of my Project Life photos and Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy. Highly recommended.

The "Hello Life 2013" design is available here and was cut with the Silhouette. Learn how to trace my digital PNG files in the Silhouette Studio software here.

In addition to the photos I create four, 4x6 cards.

Here's a closer look at the design formula for each card:

Seafoam Kit 4x6 Card + gold American Crafts Hardcover Chipboard alphabet + October Afternoon Make It Merry chipboard #3 + gold Zing glitter embossing + Orange Stitching.

I use a Brother XL2600 sewing machine. Love it.

Gold Dot Paper (from JoAnn's) + My Mind's Eye Be Amazing Chipboard Banner + Heidi Swapp Sentiment Sticker + Tiny Attacher Staple

Heidi Swapp Disco Stars + Teresa Collins Word Labels Pattern Paper + Gold Stitching

KI Memories Blackboard 12X12 Flashback Paper (available in the Studio Calico Penn Station Kit) + Celebrate Circle from Seafoam Kit (punched out from a journal card with a Marvy 3-inch Circle Punch) + gold glitter embossing Zing + Technique Tuesday Good Day stamp (punched with a 2-inch punch)

Using the 3-inch Circle Punch to cut the circle from the Seafoam 3x4 Card.

Bring on 2013!
