Welcome to Project Life | Week Fifteen
I'm actually a bit surprised that I've been so consistent with this project. I think one thing that helps is knowing I want to post about it here each week - that definitely motivates me to get it done. So thanks for showing up and encouraging me to keep on keeping on.
This week I added a bit more "scrapbooking" stuff - grabbing products that were already out on my table from other projects in progress. I'm really loving stamping lately - the fact that I've ordered/received new inks recently from Jenni Bowlin, Cat's Eye, Close To My Heart, and Tim Holtz might be helping just a bit.
Here's a look at page one:
The fourth card over in the middle are actually "stamp-offs" as I was getting the ink off each letter before moving on to the next. Love that pieces of scratch paper have a home in this book. Some of them look so cool - especially ones that include paint and ink.
If you'd like to learn more about working with long journalers in both Photoshop and Word (including video tutorials) check out this post.
Along the bottom of the long journaler I added a small strip of pattern paper and a tiny jewelry tag.
Love this idea for those times where I don't have something else specific I want to add. I think that plastic heart is an old product from Heidi Swapp and that pattern paper is an older product from Studio Calico.
Of course I had to add in Harry's newest release.
Something different this week is the introduction of a new product which will be available at Designer Digitals this coming weekend. It's a thick lined journaler that you can print and add your own handwriting (or of course you can add type within a program like Photoshop or Word).
The journal card comes "plain" and will include a couple different sizes: 8.5x11, 8x8, and 4x6 both vertical and horizontal. I added the stamped "love" on top of this card after printing with Staz On ink. The "love" stamp is from an old Studio Calico set of alphabet stamps.
In looking at my album right now I think it's likely that I'll have three volumes for this year if I keep up the same number of inserts. I'll see what it looks like at the end of the month before deciding if I'm ready to move to a new album in May.
