My goal this year with Project Life® is to fill in the pockets.
I'm doing just that and it's making me happy and I'm pretty much up to date. Am I telling every single story of my life? Nope. No worries. I'm loving that I'm getting some stories told - the sum of all these stories being greater than any one part. I'm definitely keeping it simple and I'm really liking that part too.
It's a looser approach vs. past years and it feels right for me right now.
Here's a look at Project Life® 2016 | Week Eleven:
"Evening" is a digital file from the AM/PM Digital set and was traced and cut using the Silhouette. This set would also be great for telling stories during Week In The Life™. The "she stood in the storm" card is from this month's Tough Story Kit™.
I've got a video tutorial that shows you how to trace PNG files using the Silhouette software here.
The text pattern card is include in this month's Tough Story Kit™.
The end of this week was the beginning of our Spring Break adventure. I'm going to include some photos next week and then do something else in addition with all the photos that both Aaron and I took over the course of the week.
I often intentionally take photos that include space for journaling right on the photo. Stamping and writing directly onto the photos is such a simple and easy way to include the story.
I'm still loving including things Anna has drawn - both words and pictures. This wee she was super excited about being able to walk on her hands. She came back from dance so pumped up that she wrote this up for me immediately because I was on the phone when she first got home. Cutting up something this size to fit in three pockets is also a fun way to break-up and play around with the overall design of the spread.
The "Heart Eyes" card is from the Nes Verk kit from Studio Calico (available without a subscription).
