For this year's Project Life® Intro Page I'm going photo-heavy.
If you haven't seen my post yet about the changes to how I'm approaching 2019 Project Life® documenting you can read about that here. I'll be using a black 9x12 album this year and doing monthly vs. weekly storytelling. I'm excited and a little nervous and I think that's probably the best place for me to be right now.
As you'll see below I'm using a few pieces from the January 2019 Stories By The Month™ kit along with a few things from my shop to get this album started.
There's still a short window of time to grab the January Stories By The Month™ kit + begin your subscription. I'm planning on using other pieces from this kit for my monthly January story that I'll share here after the end of the month. Please note: the new kit for February will become available on January 13th at 9am Pacific. If you are interested in these designs after that date the digital option is available.
Here's a look at how I'm starting my album for 2019:
As I mentioned up at the top, I'm going photo-heavy for my intro page this year. I loved the process of looking back though 2018 and picking out a few of my favorite photos/memories. If you wanted your intro page to be a collection of 2019 photos you could wait until the end of the year and select favorites from this year to open your album. In general I've added photos from previous years to my new year intro page so I'm going with that again.
I loved using the 9x12 2B Page Protector with the 3x3 pockets. Just that switch up in and of itself has already invigorated me. I cut down one of the cards from the January kit to fit the 3x3 pocket.
To designate the year I used these fun Transparency Numbers inside a 3x8 page protector. I used a bone folder to slide the numbers inside the page protector. These page protectors (and my 6x8 page protectors) fit right into the 9x12 album which is awesome for mixing and matching. On the outside of the page protector (on both the front and the back) I added chipboard ovals from the January Stories By The Month™ kit.
I also cut up another of the 3x4 journal cards and added that inside the Avery Index Tab.
Inside the back of the Avery Index Tab I used this the Phrases Rolling Stamp - still my favorite.
I'm so happy to have this project underway again. Here's a look at what it all looks like inside the album. Bring on 2019 stories!
