project life 2015 : may 1

July 6, 2015

I’m trying to catch up on sharing my spreads with you! I have them printed through May, and I have them created (in the app) through June. This spread covers the first half of May. So this was kind of the beginning of summer. For this side of the spread I decided to number my photos and caption them all on one card. I stamped them and wrote the journaling after printing. On the right side, all I did after printing was handwrite some journaling and glue down a couple of movie tickets. One thing I notice is that I didn’t balance my handwritten journaling very much. I’m still getting the hang of creating these spreads in the app and…

project life : april 2 & how i’m using the app

June 17, 2015

In the middle of April I decided to change my whole approach to Project Life. In order to save time, I decided to start using the app. It’s a hybrid approach, because I do a little bit of work ahead of time on my computer, and I also add finishing touches once the page is printed. Let me show you my first spread using the app, and then I’ll explain the process. I’m doing kind of a monthly grouping with my spreads, but I still like to do “week in review” cards and work on things every two weeks. Because each month doesn’t have exactly four weeks, by this point in April I needed to include three weekly updates. Here…

project life 2015 : april 1

May 4, 2015

Today I’m sharing one spread with you, from the first half of April. As I mentioned in this post, I’m at a place where I need to simplify my life to relieve some stress, but instead of giving up on Project Life altogether I am transitioning to using the app. I wanted to share my first spread using the app in a separate post which will be coming soon. Anyway, this spread from April is one of my favorites, I think. It’s just so springy and happy. Granted, I wasn’t always feeling happy during this time, in fact there were some pretty tough days, but this time I chose to save those for my journal. I had a ticket stub from…

project life 2015 : march

April 14, 2015

March’s Project Life is in the books. Two spreads for the month again. Here is a look at the first half: Liam was baptized at the beginning of March and most of this page is dedicated to that. I saved part of a Cracker Barrel bag for this pocket and added a tag for the journaling. I used some of Meredith’s artwork in a pocket here; I’m enjoying that practice! Here is the spread for the second half of the month: Most of the photos on this side are from trips to the park. It really turned to spring during this time so we started taking lots of walks there. I loved this photo of Meredith and I so I…

project life 2015 : february

March 9, 2015

Today I have February’s Project Life spreads to share. They are still basically one week per page, with a total of two full spreads per month, but grouped together monthly without weekly title cards. Here is the first layout: During the first two weeks of February we had my birthday and Valentine’s Day. I got some watercolors for Meredith so I cut down one of her paintings to include. The “yes please” cards are a freebie printable that can be found here. During this time we also went to a birthday party for our neighborhood friend Jack. Below is one of the Valentine’s Day cards that I made using Meredith’s watercolor art. I made these just for David and the…
