Hi everyone! Sarah here to share my Project Life page with you! I tried Project Life for the first time last year and I failed miserably! I made it to week 10 and then totally flopped! This year I vowed to do it again, and I found myself doing the same thing! I think I have discovered the secret to sticking with Project Life for me. It can’t be about weeks, because that’s too big of a commitment. So I have decided to do a monthly Project Life album and I can already see that this is going to be much easier!
I have a confession though, Project Life spreads do NOT come easy to me! I know they’re meant to be super quick and simple, but I feel like I’m incapable of doing anything quickly, and doing a whole bunch of different pockets almost seems like I’m doing 8 mini pages or something! I’m not kidding you, this layout sat on my desk for like 3 days! The nice thing is, that I feel like I can just pop in and do a little here and there without having to completely finish it, like I do with a layout…I’m too OCD to not finish a layout once I’ve started it! lol
Anyway, So, this is the start of my January spread. I’m pretty sure I’ll have about 4 pages of January once I’m done, but this is what I’ve got so far! I am LOVING the April Happy Everything kit for doing PL! There’s so many goodies in it, I can just go crazy! lol Also, sorry for the terrible quality of photo! I’m still trying to figure out how to take a picture of these shiny pockets without getting mega glare! If you have any tips, I’d love to hear them!
I’m in love with these gold embossed die cuts that came in the April kit and those Pink Fresh rub ons just go on like butter! They’re the best rub ons I think I’ve ever used!
The sweet die cut was from the Clique Kits shop a while ago, along with that fabulous black and white washi tape! I’m kind of in love with tearing it all messy these days 🙂 You might also recognize the “hello I love you” phrase from the March J’Adore Kit!
I printed out the printables on a sheet of vellum to give them a nice soft look. I’m so loving how that’s working with this kit! I still can’t get over how cute this picture of Linden is! He goes through these phases of needing to wear various pieces of hockey equipment…In January it was the shin pads…he’d put them on and then go into a full goalie butterfly! Anyway, he had put these on and then taken his diaper off, and I just couldn’t resist getting a few photos of him and his nude shin pads! lol I also thought the “you may say I’m a dreamer” card went quite perfectly in between a picture of my toddler, and a picture of me attempting to organize my house! LOL
There’s just so many fun pieces in this kit and I really love how I got to use so many of them in this spread! I love putting little clusters of embellishments and thread and washi tape on each card to just jazz them up and give them some dimension!
Well that’s it for today! Thanks for stopping by!!
