Pinky’s Project Life: January

PL_Tuesdays

Hey guys! It’s Tuesday here in Manila and I’m back to share my spreads for the month of January. This year I’m doing weekly documentation in 12×12 format, same as last year. No desire to switch things up just yet. I actually have a lot of ‘unfinished’ spreads from November-December, and since I spent New Year’s in Boracay, I haven’t quite finished choosing which pictures from that vacation go into the first week of my album.

Anyhoo here we go. Last year I included “Week 1”, “Week 2”, etc… in my title card slot but this year I decided not to. That naming convention ended up being more of a hassle for me than anything else. Remember, with Project Life, there are no rules.

If you’ll notice, my pages are predominantly green. I mentioned before that I like having a color scheme for the week. Even my embellishments are organized this way. The good news is, by organizing my cards by color, I’m much more able to quickly put together a spread than if they were just all jumbled up together. This is just how my brain works – we are not here to tell you what you SHOULD do.

This is the left-hand side. That Currently card is something I’m doing every Thursday, just as a ‘touch base’ with myself (ha). Thought it would be interesting to look back on in the future. You can do something similar with our free printable – directions on how to get it here.

This is the right-hand side. Sometimes I like to carve out words or shapes in my journal cards so I can slip little pictures under them. You can see that above in the ‘Today” card.

PMN_week2-LHS

This is the left-hand side of the next week. You can tell it’s a new spread because I changed my color scheme to yellow-orange. 🙂 Lots of pictures of myself, which I think happens less and less as scrapbookers become mothers and make lots of spreads about their kids. No kids yet, so plenty of ME. Hahahaha.

PMN_week2-insert

These are the front and back sides of an insert that I just took a photo of side by side. That gray card at the top left is actually a card I printed onto using my printer at home. I had to make sure my measurements were exact so as not to waste the card.

PMN_week2-printed2We’ll be posting a tutorial on how to do this soon. I used the Bellota font we shared in a recent Freebie Friday post!

PMN_week2-RHSI decided to devote the entire right side of my spread to the January 18 workshop since it’s very rare for the three of us to facilitate a workshop all together. Love those puffy geotags!

PMN_week3-LHS

Here’s the next week. I decided to go with a gray-and-aqua color scheme this time. Another thing I like to do is to write directly on the photos, as seen in that picture of my tea.

PMN_week3-insert

Again, front and back side of an insert that I just photographed together. One of my cards has a QR code on it – that’s how I include videos I want to keep in my Project Life. We can do a tutorial on this soon too if you’re interested 🙂 Let us know in the comments!

Ain’t no sunset like a Boracay sunset. I love that Who, What, Where, When, Why card from the Seafoam edition –  I use it on all my travel spreads. We still have Seafoam in stock!

That’s all for now. We’ll be back again next week with another Project Life Tuesday post. 🙂 We already opened registration for our next workshop on March 22!
