I’m starting a bit late this year, but I’m still using Project Life to document our daily lives. I received my prints up through the end of March and got them in my album last night. I’m doing what I’ve done the past three years and document weekly.
Here is what I’m using this year:
Favorite Things core kit designed by Heidi Swapp. I am really excited about using this kit. The colors are so great and I love the designs. This is my first kit with floral designs since using the Amber edition (forever ago!!) and I’m loving these. Also, last year I was excited to use the new Kiwi core kit until I opened it and started going through the cards. I was disappointed. That kit is NOT my style at all and the colors read a lot different on the computer screen. I’ve mixed it with left over cards from the Seafoam kit to make it more my style but I’m considering buying a different kit (there are so many awesome kits to choose from now) and going to back and redo what I’ve done so far. At least I’m only half way through the year. Anyway, Favorite Things is definitely one of my favorite things!
Design A pocket pages. These are what I’ve been using since the beginning, but I add other designs in depending on the week and the activities we have going on. I always add something extra during the kids birthday weeks and vacations.
I haven’t 100% made up my mind on the album yet. I’ve been using We R Memory Keepers faux leather albums in vanilla for the past three years, but I really like the look of the gray, so I may do this year and then the next two years in gray and then maybe switch up the colors again. Which means I would do the same color album three years in a row and then change colors. It could be a nice change, but I also like the look of having them all be the same color. Hmmmmm…decisions, decisions. I’ll get back to you on that.
I’ll also be using lots of embellishments, as well as, digital files for both Elise Blaha Cripe and Ali Edwards.
Hopefully I’ll be better at keeping up with this years book and catch up on last years as well. Sometimes this project can be a bit overwhelming, but it’s so, so worth it when you can look back at the completed albums.
Hooray for Project Life!
