Project Life® 2017 | Week Twenty-One

Those of you who are part of my Story Subscription saw a couple projects from me in this month's classroom (Lost + Found theme) where I used a black background with white text - I'm loving that look right now so I did it again in my Week 21 Project Life® spread. 

My "formula" this week was to grab products from my stash that include gold foil. For me that ended up being some gold foil hearts and word/phrase strips from past Story Kits™. I've been talking more about the idea of using formulas - simply something that's bringing your whole spread together - it might be journaling treatment, it might be a color, or a texture, or something else. Basically it gives you some direction in how you are going to go about embellishing your project. 

Here's a look at my Week 21: 

To create these text boxes I'm make a black box in Photoshop and then using white text on top. You can't print white text onto black paper so you do need to make the box black + white text.

The hashtag on the photo of Anna reading is from my Chipboard Shape Bundle

The "this week" stamp is from the Real Life 4x6 Stamp Set - I did the same thing on the back side for Week 20 (stamping and embossing with gold embossing powder). 

My gold foil title card was part of my One Little Word® release for 2017 - those sold out but we do have the set available digitally: OLW Digital Inspiration Cards.

It also includes an arrow that's used on the second page of my spread. 

Font I used for these journaling cards is Remington Noiseless

"Gotta Love This" is a die cut from the new Summer Die Cut Variety Pack

    Your spreads are beautiful! I love this idea of formulas. I do it monthly, 6x8, but there are definitely opportunities for me to use these kinds of ideas, too. Thank you for all you share. Michelle t

    Another great spread Ali. I have to say...your 404 error page is hysterical. :-) The Gratitude 3x4 Notepad link in your supplies list goes there. Does that mean this product is no longer available? I did search, and couldn't seem to find it.

      Hi! Yes, it's not available any longer (it was part of my One Little Word® release at the beginning of the year).

      I was wondering that. Thanks. :-)
