2018 Project Life

2018 Hybrid Project Life Week 14A ft. The Lilypad MPM Wander June Kit

Hello lovelies, today I am working in my 2018 Project Life album for Week 14. This layout will be split into two videos because the week had a two page spread plus an insert, so this is the left hand side and insert for you today. I am using the Memory Pocket Monthly kit from The Lilypad for June, which is called Wander. To see the full 2018 Project Life album process, you can click here. You can also learn more about my approach to this album in my pocket page memory class called In My Pocket Volume 02.

Our photos for this week were from two main events: Easter and a short trip to Savannah, GA. Those are the starting place for this layout, so I printed the Easter photos to fill pockets on the left hand side first. Of course there were so many photos from Savannah that an insert made perfect sense here.

I also had another starting point, the transparent hearts that were part of the previous layout. They are from Studio Calico, and since they are see through, they determine the color palette for this layout as well! The June Wander kit has these colors, plus has a travel theme, so that made the kit an easy choice here. I love when decisions come together so easily like that.

Easter for us is typically fairly laid back, and even though our kids are getting older I still like to do Easter baskets for them. It’s always fun to find little goodies for them, and of course who doesn’t love chocolate?! I know in future years we will enjoy having documentation of what was in those baskets, and they will remember.

These photos easily become a time capsule of what they were wearing, what kinds of candy they liked, and what they were into right now. This is also a winding down for us, since there is no more Easter bunny so their baskets are more simple and becoming more grown up. This is definitely what I want to remember from right now, and I am loving Project Life for giving the space to document this.

Our trip to Savannah was not a long one, but I definitely took lots of photos and am excited to include our journey into this album as well. For today I am just beginning with the insert, a 6×12 with simple photos and a few journal cards. You will recognize some of the photos already, because I have been creating 12×12 layouts from this trip as well. I love how including it right here puts the trip into the entire context of our life. Easter and Spring Break were in the same week for us, and so this is how this week happened for us.

I also love how easy it is, when doing hybrid layouts, to print digital journal cards and then incorporate simple embellishments into the layout. I typically print my journal cards on 8.5×11 matte card stock (these are Kodak brand) and then I drop a few of the digital elements onto a 4×6 card and print and cut those by hand. For this layout I have used card stock alphabet from Simple Stories, a flair button from Crate Paper, label stickers and photo polymer stamp from Studio Calico, and a few chipboard pieces from my stash.

I also have filmed my process video for this layout, which you can view here.

2018 Project Life Introduction Layout ft. Out With The Old and Crate Paper Good Vibes!!

***To learn more about this album and my setup look out for my upcoming class, In My Pocket Memory Keeping Volume 2!! Coming soon!!!***

Hi guys, today I am sharing the Introduction layout in my 2018 Project Life album! I am so thrilled to begin another year of memory keeping in a weekly format. I am using my own brand new digital collection called Out With The Old, along with Crate Paper’s Good Vibes physical collection!

I am so excited to start this project again this year! This is my seventh year doing Project Life, and I love this format. I am especially excited that this year I will be creating my own products to use in these albums. I hope this layout is inspirational for you!

Since this is the introduction layout, this is a good time to include who the album is about. This is a snapshot of who we are right at this moment in time. I began with two photos we took back around Thanksgiving last year, so fairly recent. I then just filled in with my favorite journaling cards from the Out With The Old collection.

For my title card I really liked this word art from the Crate Paper Good Vibes collection. We can all use some good vibes this year, can’t we?! I layered embellishments onto the black and white Marks card for fun, and I added our intitial plus our names and ages. The line stamp is from the 2017 Paislee Press December Daily product offerings, available at Ali Edwards’ website.

I added just the tiniest of embellishments to our photo. A good formula is a label, a word sticker, and a chipboard piece!

Some of the cards need no embellishing at all, and for the start here card I only added the tiniest glitter asterisk. Those are some of my favorite cards in the collection! Same for the year card – it needed only a little more glitter and a word stamp. That roller stamp is from Becky Higgins Project Life and still remains one of my most used products I own!
