Last week I took a bit of time to tell some stories from last June in my 2018 Project Life® album.
Anyone else still working on their 2018 (or earlier) project? Do you have a plan or are you just winging it as you go when you are in the mood? Do you value having it all done or taking your time and enjoying the process (not that it has to be an either/or)?
I've been working on 2018 and including one spread each month in the Story Classroom. I've got the albums hanging out on top of some shelves in my office so I remember to come back to them when I have a chance. Many of the spreads include the photos and are just waiting for me to add the words and any other embellishments.
Making it happen today.
Here's a look at the simple spread:
I've had these fun Summer/Everyday journal cards on my table since last summer. Yep, sometimes that's just how it goes. I loved using them as homes here in this spread for a bunch of my 3x4 photos this week. They are no longer available in the physical format from my shop which means some of you guys out there have them in your stash: this is your chance to get them out. If you missed them you can grab them digitally here.
On top of the journal card I used the Phrases Roller Stamp to add another sentiment. Some spreads include more photos and some include more words and some have a generally balanced mix of both. This one leans more to the photo-heavy side.
Fabric circles were Add On's for Stories By The Month™ subscribers.
Added writing directly onto a couple photos in both black and white (white is with the POSCA Pen).
