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.
In addition to the photos I create four, 4×6 cards.
Here’s a closer look at the design formula for each card:
I use a Brother XL2600 sewing machine. Love it.
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)
Bring on 2013!
