project life 2012 : weeks 47 – 48

January 9, 2013

This is the last spread of 2012, and all I have left to do is the back ending page! I’ll share that with you in the next week or two since I’m awaiting the arrival of my core kit to start 2013’s album.


A color scheme emerged naturally this week. I usually don’t use much red but I love it as an accent color with the teal + neutrals since it was Christmastime.


On the left side are some everyday photos & journaling about Meredith’s favorite stuffed animal, plus I cut out some of the kraft paper that she and I colored to wrap David’s present in. Included a duplicate photo of our work Christmas party that I already have in the December daily, and then I thought the calendar page (from Paper Source) fit in perfectly. Those labels are printables that I got from the Studio Calico Day by Day class. I am sooooo excited to have a working color printer now!


I made this journaling card out of a Project Life grid card and washi tape from Target.


On the right side, if I could go back and change something I’d probably switch the black and white chevron paper with something more muted, but it’s not bad as is. I got to include a quote I cut out from a magazine months ago (I think I was just barely getting around to reading last year’s Christmas issues, ha) that is perfect for our life. In the bottom left I put in the essentials from Meredith’s first Christmas card since it was too big to fit on its own (from a favorite patient of mine, blurred for privacy). Then the single photo I took on Christmas day, of my parents in front of the gift pile in my house. :)


I didn’t want to go into detail about Meredith’s 5-day-long illness since I wrote about it lots in the December daily album, but these two photos pretty much sum it up.


I listed our main gifts received on a SMASH journaling card. Then wrote just a couple sentences about the hellaciousness of work post-holiday, on another printable from the SC Day by Day class.

Yay! So I’ll wrap this up hopefully next week and then it’s onward to the next album!

    I bet it feels pretty awesome to have an entire book done :) I love that M has Jasper; sweetest thing ever. I really hope I can make the trip to Houston happen so that I can meet you all finally!
