Project Life® 2014 | Week Two


Welcome to Project Life® 2014 | Week Two (January 6th through January 12th).

One of the things I've liked doing recently is including more words, even taking photos of words, to add to my Project Life® spreads.

This was the week I wrote about living Hands Free and included it as a 6x12 insert:


You can see the front side of the 6x12 insert above and the back side (pattern paper) below:


More about that fun Dodge Ball pattern paper below.


"Today" is a sticker from this set of great black/clear stickers from Me And My Big Ideas.

The red #7 sticker is from this set from Kelly Purkey/Simon Says Stamp. It's a great set of number stickers. It's adhered to a journal card included with the Wellington Childhood Edition Mini Kit.

The third card over I created using a "hello" card from Studio Calico + "love this life" stamp from my Weekly Review set + "#hasmyheart" acrylic tab that was included with a set of Heidi Swapp die cuts.




For this insert I used my new Words And Photos Vol. 2 6x12 Layered Template set. It includes two columns of text to help you organize those longer stories. I adjusted this one a bit to accommodate an even longer story by making the top portion shorter.

Here's what that template set looks like:


You can mask photos behind the word art like I show in the sample (that's coming in a later Project Life® post) or you can change the color or add a pattern paper behind the word art. Lots of options.

I've got a tutorial on working with my 6x12 layered template series here. That specific video tutorial uses the Vol. 1 set but you'll get the idea.

This is my favorite way to include longer stories in Project Life®.


I looked through my photos from this particular week and didn't have one that I liked enough to enlarge to a 6x12 so I decided to just pick a fun pattern paper I liked and slip into the pocket.

Before slipping it into the pocket I added those Wanderlust Mini Days Of The Week Clothespins - again taking off the clothespin portion just like I did here.


That burger is from Tasty & Sons in Portland. Highly recommended spot. Under the photo of the burger I copied a nice email I received from Simon's main teacher.


The "super" card was a 4x6 that was included with the Studio Calico Office Hours Project Life® kit - it was a 4x6 that I cut down to a 3x4.

And seriously, grocery lists are always a good thing to add.
