I’ve discovered a few things creating my Project Life layouts the last few years.
First, I like it clean and simple.
Second, I prefer square edges but I’m OK with rounded and fine using both.
Third, my need to have it all one kit and matching was wrong. This year I have been pulling from many kits, on hand or digital and creating layouts that match my weeks spread.
Fourth, I love this concept.
Here is week one finished from my 2014 album. I started my week on the first of the year so it was a short week. I don’t feel the need to “have” a daily photo. I take my week and look at it as a whole. 80% is always chronological but I make it work where and when I need to.
This week we said hello to twenty fourteen, goodbye to my sister as she travelled back to Honduras to finish her last term there teaching. We’ll see her in June again. We visited the dentist, baked, cooked, built lego sets, and headed into the deep freeze that became the Polar Vortex. I used a mix of products, Jade, Sunshine, Midnight, It’s a Man’s World, and Project Life life printables. This week I also mixed using digital type, typewriter and my own handwriting.
Project Life® is a memory-keeping system created by Becky Higgins. I use photos, text and stuff to document our life weekly, monthy and for everything in between.
