Say hello to Project Life® 2016 | Week One.
You guys will be so proud of me (I'm proud of me) because I actually already have Week Two done and will share it here soon.
Also just a reminder that registration is now open for my Storytelling With Project Life® workshop which begins February 2nd. You can read more details in my blog post here (including a bundling code for a discount when you purchase both the class & the optional class kit) or check out the class in the shop here. Don't forget that we are including a free set of digital cards and stamp (all PNG files) if you register before February 2nd.
Part of the reason for teaching the workshop is to re-ignite my own love for this style of memory keeping. It's working.
Here's a look at my Week One:
Week One was part at home, part on the road. To document the story of my adventures at CHA (blog post here), I used a 6 inch x 12 inch insert. The front side features a half-sheet of patterned vellum + a collection of word and phrase stickers.
That back is a full 6 inch x 12 inch page of journaling taken directly from my blog post with a few edits.
The "yes, this" card is from my New Year Journal Card Set.
On the first half of this spread I added in a bunch of writing directly on the photos - it's one of the simplest and easiest ways to add a little more of the story directly onto the photos. I'm using my AE Precision Pen for writing on my photos. When I write on the photos I'm generally looking at the shapes or blank space within the photo to use as a home for my words.
I embossed the back of the "E" and added a chipboard phrase.
The vellum "this is our year" is from Studio Calico's Arendal Kit. The light blue "yes" ticket is from a really cool, still available kit from Studio Calico calledNes Verk (the blue Heart Eyes card is also from that kit). Around it I added word and phrase stickers and chipboard from my Gatherings Story Kit™, the Build Story Kit™, and from a Freckled Fawn chipboard set. The white rubber star is either from a SC or Freckled Fawn kit.
