Welcome to Project Life® 2017 | Week Two.
Where's Week One? I included an overview of my Week One in the Story Classroom for the Numbers Story Theme. Each month in the classroom I include a Project Life® process video showing how I used products from the Story Kit™ to tell a weekly story in my album (sometimes it's a current year spread and sometimes it's from a past year where I'm filling in the gaps).
One of the things I'm hoping to do in my Project Life® album this year is use up some of my personal product stash. You'll see things this week that are products currently available in my shop and ones that are from present and past Story Kits™ and other past projects. I'm still waiting for the Project 52 Fresh Edition Core Kit to arrive and then I will also incorporate some of those cards from week to week.
Here's a look at Week Two:
Story Kit™ subscribers will know that I'm using number labels throughout the month of January on each of my photos (the theme this month is numbers and the kit includes 32 number labels). I've never used a consistent design element over the course of a month in Project Life® (that I can remember) so that's a little something different and fun to consider as you tackle your own album and stories.
One of the things that was going through my mind as I was working on this week was that I really do want to keep it simple and focused on filling the pockets (something I talk a bunch about in Storytelling With Project Life® workshop that will open for registration soon). Even a silly quick story like "got my hair done" is something that can fill a pocket. I'm hoping to get back into a weekly routine to stay a bit more up to date with this project (for me that is always easier in the beginning of the year than the end of the year).
Along with the number label stickers I added small epoxy day of the week circles from the Review Story Kit™. "Ready Set Go" card is from the January 2016 Digital Kit, the Here's The Story card is from a paper pad (now sold out), and the yellow lined card is from the Read Story Kit™.
The black text pattern paper is from Photo Play Paper (ordered via Scrapbook.com).
The "let's do it" card is from a past Studio Calico Documenter kit. Others are detailed below.
Gold foil Friday card from the 2016 Week In The Life™ Kit (a few of those kits are still available - they are not year specific).
I'm also thinking about using one sheet per week from my "Gratitude" 3x4 notepad (notepad includes 72 sheets). I like that idea that one thing would be the same in every spread over most of the weeks - a consistent element throughout the whole of the album. Hard to go wrong with a weekly gratitude practice.
