Last year, I jumped in & joined the crowd in all the Project Life madness, and I am so glad I did. I incorporate it into my 12x12 albums, because I didn't want the pressure of having to do EVERY single week of our lives. When I do a spread, I always love it, so I will be continuing to do it "my way" in 2013. I have set quite a few goals for myself in this new year, but only because I have so much I want to change, and make better. I am still working on finding the perfect storage for me, I love seeing everyone's cute little boxes on instagram, but have yet to find one for myself [if you have any really cool ideas for storage, please, do share ;] so as of right now, my supplies are a little bit everywhere.
For myself, I plug in my journaling cards & memorabilia throughout the week, and try to finish the weeks on Sundays, which are normally lazy days around here, and seem to not be as busy. I have a ton of plastics from ordering last year, and I managed to snatch up last year's Clementine & the new Seafoam core kit, and some of the new page protectors as well, that are perfect for instagrams & inserts.
With CHA, I didn't have much time to share until now, and I will try to be good about posting every Sunday from now on ;] even if it's NOT the weeks in numerical order. The first spread I'd like to share with you is Week 3, January 14th-20th: This is post CHA, in fact I split the week into two spreads-- Monday/Tuesday on one spread because it was the last two days of show && we went to Disney. Then the rest of the week on another spread, which is what I'll be sharing with you today:
I love incorporating the layouts I make in with my project life, so this is a veryyyy busy week, mixed with the LO I shared [here] & even an insert-- I encourage you to do the same, make Project Life your own ;]
The products I used are all from the new Amy Tangerine, Yes, Please collection, the Studio Calico January Project Life Kit, Chic Tags, Bananafishstudios and Becky Higgins page protectors. In addition to the products from those companies, I had some fun with hand stitching & even water colors-- it was SO much fun. PL is the perfect place to try out a new technique, because if you mess up, you only did it on a 3x4 space ;]
