Project Life® 2016 | Week Six

For Week Six in Project Life® 2016 I used cards created with the optional Storytelling Class Kit for my Project Life® workshop along with a few other supplies. The kit is sold out + will not be restocked but the stamp will be available later this year. We also have a digital set of the cards + stamps available here.  

Here's a look at my Week Six: 

In the Storytelling With Project Life® classroom this week I shared my complete process for this spread which included creating all the cards first (cutting many of them up to make homes for stories), stamping the days of the week, and then writing something on each one each day of the week. I love the concept of breaking up the different tasks and having all the "crafty" parts done and all I had to do was add the words and print my photos during the week. 

I also included a 6x8 insert this week to celebrate Anna's birthday. I stamped "birthday" using my Birthday Stamp Set on top of a card from my Celebrate Journal Card Set. I also used that stamp set to stamp "birthday goodness" inside the 2-inch Avery Index tab

That #7 tag is from an old Studio Calico set or kit which I don't think is available any more. 

On the back of the insert I included a photo (cut into 2) of her gift list (for sending thank you notes) + the back of the Celebrate card + I cut up one of her personalized cards and wrote her a short note about how awesome she is and how thankful I am to have her in my life. I ordered those personalized cards from Minted (Sanibel Island stripes children's stationery) to encourage the fine art of letter writing and thank-you-noting.

The "everyday story" title card was included in the Spark Story Kit™

One thing you might notice about this week is I didn't add any embellishments to my photos. I felt like I had enough going on in my middle row of 3x4 cards + the insert to call it good. Actually, I really love those photos without anything else on them. 

My goal this week, after putting all the cards together, was simply to write down some basic facts on each day. 

I seriously love how this week turned out and I will totally use this approach again another time. 

And in case you are wondering, I write on those journal cards first and then underline them. 

Hope you have  great week!

    Love this! You include so much journaling. It's great. For anyone looking for the number cards - they are Studio Calico Lemonlush numbered journaling cards. If you google them there are some sites that still have in stock. The reason I know this is because I love them and have hoarded 3 packs :)

      First laugh of the day goes to you! I thought, "oh-I would end up hoarding those".

    I'm so embarrassed to say, I feel funny commenting about something you journaled but I'm soooo excited. WITL kits??!! I knew you'd probably get stuff early, that's about as much as I understand about business, but WITL kits? You have it? I know you said info would be soon. You know how much I love WITL, now, renewed excitement for this project for this year, this spring. And I really like this daily type journaling with the days of the week and the stamped cards. Love to do that, too. Like to stamp off on a piece of cardstock, cut, and staple or foam dot on a card too. Anyway I'm rambling. Great spread. Excited. Thank you. Michelle t

      hahaha, I saw the WITL + DD journaling and got excited. I had to skip out on the DITL kit, but we'll see if I'm strong enough for the WITL kit.. ;)

      Idk if you're in the storytelling with PL class but on the video tour of her office this week she pulled it out for a second (blurry and in the packaging) but a quick glimpse... I was so excited!

      I saw it in the video too and kinda freaked. Reminded me of being a kid when the new comic I was waiting for was sitting there waiting to be racked.

    I love your spreads and journaling and I'm in the storytelling class and thoroughly enjoyed the process video for this spread. Also can I just say that I am so pumped/excited for December Daily and it's MIND BLOWING to me how you already have to be planning for it in February. Do you turn on Christmas music to get in the spirit when you're designing DD kits this far in advance? :)

    Even though I do this project monthly, I sooooo enjoy looking at your spreads. They give me an incredible amount of inspiration. Thank you for that!

    Ali, I am really curious about the little yellow heart. Would you tell us more, please.

      Hi - that was a Valentine craft that Anna and I did together. Supplies and how-to were from Purl Soho: http://www.purlsoho.com/create/2014/01/26/mollys-sketchbook-sweetheart-charms/?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Sweetheart%20Charms%20Pattern%20%7C%20T6&utm_term=PS%20Recipients. I actually did a whole layout about it for the Craft Story Kit™ this month (available in the subscription classroom).
