Welcome to Project Life 2013 | Week Fourteen (April 1 – April 7).
Am I still doing Project Life? Absolutely.
Am I behind? A little. I’ve got a bunch of weeks in progress and will be sharing them over the next week. This week and week fifteen have been “almost done” for weeks and photos are printed for the other weeks.
A couple things I need to do:
- Order another black 12×12 album for the next four months (I’ve been doing three albums per year, four months in each album). Right now they are all still in the first one for 2013 and it’s getting tight.
- Find a new routine that will gel with the work I’m doing for Hello Story (my new class at Big Picture that starts in July). I think it’s totally possible to do both Project Life and traditional pages, I’m just working on finding my own groove between the two.
- SIMPLIFY. At least for the next couple of months I think I need to keep this project simple while I’m in the middle of content development for this workshop. I think getting the album back down on my kitchen counter with a stack of cards will help me with this.
How are things going for you? Are you new to Project Life? Are you a veteran? Still loving it?
Here’s Week Fourteen:
Here’s a closer look:
The “listen, believe, trust” card is from my Everyday Love Journal Cards that was printed on photo paper.
“Yo April” are Cream Thickers from American Crafts that I ran through my sewing machine with red thread.
“Heart this boy” word art on the photo of Simon making cookies is from Love You Boy.
I’d love to do a week where I fill out one of those Best/Worst cards everyday. The one above was printed on some leftover paper that I had used as an over-spray catch under whatever it was that I was actually misting with paint.
Here’s a look at the right side:
The star card is from Kelly Purkey’s kit for Simon Says Stamp.
Little pink word stickers are from My Mind’s Eye.
Still loving cutting up journal cards and adding them to my pictures. I like not re-inventing the wheel each week and adding a bit more context to my photos.
The journal card here was included in Studio Calico’s Project Life add-on kit (May 2013).
