project life 2012| wk 1

okay I really have dropped the ball on blogging this week...will you forgive me?! :) I have a few deadlines that took priority  but I do have a quick share of my first week of Project Life. Thank you all for the super sweet comments about my title page and feelings on this project. I can't wait to see your PL albums this year as well and I don'.   It has been a long time since I've been this excited about documenting.

I didn't take a lot of photos during week one but I have more than made up for it for week two. My page bases are clear and the size of my pages are 6.5x8. This size is perfect for me, I love working with small photos and 4x6 ones... which makes this size a perfect fit for both. I like the format of the style A page protectors, so this layout was influenced by it. It feels good to use some of my most favorite products of all time, uhmmmm (heidi swapp obsessed...just a tad) and finally using my washi tape and extra kit items from studio calico!

I've also been using the momento app tons to make notes and my tweets and instagram feeds are connected so it makes journaling a breeze! We saw (sister+me) War Horse while s2 were at school last Monday. It was PHENOMENAL!! Please go see it, loved it so much, now I want to see the play. We celebrated my mommy's 69th birthday, welcomed a new year, starbucks and lots of trips to Target. I visit that place way more than I should but I guess buying some groceries there....this is my rationalization!

my layout with inserts- The sizes of  photos on the right sight are 2.5x3.5. My smaller photos like the 2012 and Synai with the leopard scarf are 2x2. I printed the all on my home photo printer.project life 2012| week 1 opposite side of  the 2012 overlay project life 2012| week 1 details of 2012 sheet opp. project life 2012| week 1 details layout without inserts...i know every week will not be two pages, but I do like having extra room to play. It's all about making adjustments and making it work for YOU! I downloaded digital elements and had them printed on cardstock at fedex office. I had some printed on transparencies like the chevron one below.project life 2012| week 1-without inserts products used| Studio Calico Kraft Cardstock Stickers (stars); Studio Calico State Fair Rubon(sunday); JBS Ink (red); versamark;Aqua Zing;Studio Calico Autumn Press Woodgrain Alphas;JBS Cardstock Sticker Label (green and pink);JBS Tiny Type Stickers; Smash Travel Pad; Prima alphas; Elle's Studio; Martha Stewart Heart Punch

  7. i like that target journaling card!!! well i liked it all but the Target one made me smile!

  8. Love all these details, the size of the photos, the little bits from SC Kits. Printing a download on had forgotten about even doing that! Amazing how you put so much detail into your pages. So inspiring. It would take me forever to put something like this together, probably because I think too much!
