Project Life® 2016 | Week Sixteen

Getting stories told. 

Boom. 

Still loving it. Still not trying to tell every single story. Still not including every single photo. Still loving repetition. Still loving white.

Here's a look at my Week Sixteen: 

For this week I made a set of journal cards using this silkscreen (we have a couple new sets of silkscreens coming soon that I'm super excited to tell you about) + this foam alphabet sticker seta rolling date stamp. I made all those cards first and then filled in the stories after the week had passed. 

I had a bit of an issue with the white paper I used this time - not sure exactly where it came from, but it was not friendly with my pens (which work great on other papers that I regularly use). 

The "hard week" is a 3x8 page protector insert - more about that below. Love that they fit right into a 12x12 album. 

The thick black pen is my favorite Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen Big Brush. So great. 

The "now" card is from a past Studio Calico kit. Love that yellow. 

For my photo accents this week I used stickers from this set

I love the idea of including a small insert. This is a 3x8 page protector that you can get from my shop. I include lots of inserts with additional photos or stories that are bigger but this is a great size if you have something specific you want to include that might be smaller - love the idea of including an over-arching theme or story for the week (this was a hard week and acknowledging that tells more of my story). I used the same elements that I added to my other journal cards for the week + a stamp from the Believe Story Stamp™

As usual I added an index tab along the outside edge of my insert. 

On the back I used a photo of the allium in my backyard.

    So good to see one of these posts! I'm months behind, but still documenting and hoping to get it all into an album soon. Love the foam letters and small insert.

    Every time I see one of your PL posts, I feel the urgent need to run to my craft space and get to work. Every time. Thank you so much for the inspiration :)

    I too am inspired by your PL layouts. I jumped up and finished a week after reading your blog post. I love how it turned out. I do have a question, however. I've been trying to find black 12x12 albums and haven't had any luck. The ones I've been using for years are 3 ring, WeAreMemoryKeepers 12x12, but they don't seem to be available. Are you using them for PL and if so where are you getting them? Thank you for your time.

    Thanks for sharing. Love this one. Thanks to your Project Life class, I have completed Jan -June this year apart from the last two weeks of June. They just need the journaling finished. I'm keeping it simple, telling stories and just putting it in the pockets! Thanks for your inspiration

    thank you for inspiring me! Remembering to keep it simple, being okay with repetition has been key for completing my 2015 (that I didn't even start until January this year-I just finished it yesterday!) And now that repetition has helped me to stay on top of 2016--THANKS again!

    How do you use the silkscreens Ali? Have you done a video that I've missed?
