Project Life® 2018 | Week Twenty-Five

Last week I took a bit of time to tell some stories from last June in my 2018 Project Life® album

Anyone else still working on their 2018 (or earlier) project? Do you have a plan or are you just winging it as you go when you are in the mood? Do you value having it all done or taking your time and enjoying the process (not that it has to be an either/or)? 

I've been working on 2018 and including one spread each month in the Story Classroom. I've got the albums hanging out on top of some shelves in my office so I remember to come back to them when I have a chance. Many of the spreads include the photos and are just waiting for me to add the words and any other embellishments. 

Making it happen today. 

Here's a look at the simple spread: 

I've had these fun Summer/Everyday journal cards on my table since last summer. Yep, sometimes that's just how it goes. I loved using them as homes here in this spread for a bunch of my 3x4 photos this week. They are no longer available in the physical format from my shop which means some of you guys out there have them in your stash: this is your chance to get them out. If you missed them you can grab them digitally here.   

On top of the journal card I used the Phrases Roller Stamp to add another sentiment. Some spreads include more photos and some include more words and some have a generally balanced mix of both. This one leans more to the photo-heavy side. 

Fabric circles were Add On's for Stories By The Month™ subscribers

Added writing directly onto a couple photos in both black and white (white is with the POSCA Pen).


Here's a look at how this spread came together:

    I have various years of PL in various stages...:) 2012 is completed. ..2013 & 14 are halfway finished, no 2015 done, 2016 is finished through Sept...only have Oct & Nov to go..(Dec. is always in DD).No 2018 or 19. When I look at your spreads I think "Dang I miss doing that", but I switched to making individual layouts for each grandkid. I'm not a fan of the 12x12 album size. They're too bulky to look at and store. Thinking about going back to PL and using an 8.5x11 album, but I still gravitate back to individual layouts. Maybe PL is fun to look at, but not for me?

    I had pretty much stopped scrapbooking entirely for a few year, but I was always drawn to the project life spreads you would share. I like the way they show little slices of everyday life... so I took your Storytelling with Project Life class, dusted off my supplies and now I'm in love with the project again! I've had a pretty good rhythm of printing each week in 2019 and I've even printed the last half of 2018 and gotten all the photos in the pockets!

    I only started in 2018, and am happy to say that I'm doing project life every week! I use the project life app, which makes the process a lot easier for me. Then I print at home in 8x8 size. I also took the story telling with project life class, and its the best online course I have ever taken. Thank you for making it!!!
    Ali I'm wondering what pen you use when your writing on the journal cards? It looks so nice and comfortable, I have a small obsession with skinny black ink pens :)
