Yay! I am so excited to share the beginnings of my Project Life album for 2014. I was waiting on my Life|Scripted class for my title and weekly cards and now that its arrived (and I’m addicted) I could finalize my cover and begin my weekly spreads.
I am such a huge fan of this project and type of memory keeping. I love printing pictures, telling stories, using up my scrap supplies, and trying new techniques. I think it matches my life manifesto: “celebrating the everyday” so well. Project Life makes memory keeping easy, and I just can’t get enough.
Here is my cover page for 2014:
I practices writing 2014 with a brush so many times knowing this was my plan. I didn’t originally think to write out twenty-fourteen till I was in the moment, but I love how it turned out. A little handwriting, a couple Thickers and some journaling cards later and I was done. I love the little pops of yellow. I’ve been so drawn to that color lately.
And now on to Week One.
I’m not quite sure how I’m going to add the dates yet on my weekly cards (perhaps with a label-maker or a stamp) but once I decide I’ll go back and add to this.
For the first layout I wanted to share my reasons for picking Thrive as my OneLittleWord for 2014. I followed the prompts from Ali Edward’s first class and used those as the basis for my journaling cards. I also added that first picture from Pinterest that jumped out at me a few months ago that drew me to the word.
On my second page I tried to keep it simple, but used some new wood veneers that I got recently. This week included our first date night of 2014 and a road trip for me to Canada with my parents.
