Welcome to Project Life® 2016 | Week Two.
Just a heads up that my online Storytelling With Project Life® workshop begins next Tuesday - February 2nd (registration will close on February 9th). I've been spending a lot of time recently going back through all my past albums gathering story ideas and assessing what's worked and not worked and what I've learned along the way. It's been awesome to go back and see what this project looked like for me in the beginning vs. today (the things that are the same & different). I'm excited to share another in-depth workshop with you as we all figure out our own heart of the matter with Project Life®. Get all the details here.
Here's a look at how my words and photos came together for Week Two:
Another insert this week. I don't do this every week, it really just depends on what's happening and what I might want to include. These two drawings from Anna were ones that I didn't want to cut up. So great Anna. This is one of the things I love about Project Life® - it can be a home for this kind of stuff. Not all of it of course, but added in here and there it makes the whole thing come to life that much more.
The "heart this" in the speech bubble card is included in my Love Life Journal Card Set.
Ah yes. The Mega Date Stamp. It's giant and it's awesome and I think I'm likely to use it a lot this year. I got one when they first came out last year and ended up giving it to my sister because I'm nice like that. When they became available again a couple of weeks ago I jumped at the chance to order one for myself. Super happy with that purchase. The cute little chipboard heart is from Freckled Fawn's Iconic embellishment kit.
Lots of handwriting on journal cards this week - it's such a simple and easy way to document.
And Powerball, of course. And of course #notawinner. One of the things I've loved as I've looked back through all my older albums is the inclusion of ephemera and random papers like that - I want to keep being intentional about including those kinds of things.
The "magical ordinary moments" chipboard circle was included in the SC Wink Wink Scrapbook Kit.
One of my favorite recent photos of Anna is this one I took of her with an iPad in her lap before bed. The fun little sticky note on top was from a Freckled Fawn embellishment kit.
I used the black vellum alpha and cork number from SC's Arendal Kit to create the "dinner" journal card (on top of white cardstock).
And you gotta love that photo of Simon. The red "bring on the awesome" was cut from a 4x6 inch card in the Cheer Story Kit™.
On top of the photo of Anna I used the "go ______ go" stamp from the Cheer Story Stamp™ set and placed one of the vellum alpha stickers right in the middle. Love creating little homes for embellishments like that.
