Hello and welcome back! Today I wanted to share the start of my Project Life by Stampin' Up! album with you. This post will cover the June 2014 pages. I'm working on July as we speak, and then will go forward for the rest of 2014 and then back to January as well. At least that is my current plan! Ha. For my summer pages, I'm using the Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection and Accessory Pack. They feature a great combo of bright colors and fun accents that are working well with my summer photos.
I used the Project Life Day To Day Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Project Life Point & Click Photopolymer Stamp Set on the title card. I also used the Ray of Sunshine Clear Mount set for the art piece along with one of the epoxy stickers in the center of the sun. The Alphabet Rotary Stamp makes for simple journaling on Vellum Cardstock strips. I just stapled them to my photos and called it good.
The next page I added a Throwback Thursday picture. I also love the index print of the projects I created in June, something I plan to repeat each month. I used the Feel Goods Clear Mount Stamp Set, the Project Life Remember This Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Back To Basics Alphabet Photopolymer Stamp Set to add to the journaling.
This was a more simple layout. I did create my own quote piece in the upper right pocket, and repeated using the Alphabet Rotary Stamp and Vellum for a caption.
I started a new eating plan in June, so there are lots of pictures of food. I did journal on several of the smaller cards about all of the changes, but I'm keeping that page private at least for now. You'll see lots of pictures of my dog and probably my friend's dogs too as I share more months.
Here is the last page for June. I added the date with the This And That Remember Rotary Stamp. I made an art piece about USA in the World Cup using a retired soccer set, as well as the Metro Type Alphabet Photopolymer Stamp Set, the stars from the Project Life Point & Click Photopolymer Stamp Set and the stripes from the Gratitude For Days Photopolymer Stamp Set.
So glad I was finally able to share my Project Life pages with you! I'm working on my July pages now, but since I had many more pictures from July I have more pages to make. Maybe I'll share July in two or more posts! Here is how I'm using Project Life.
- I've decided to mix in Project Life pages with my regular 12x12 pages. So, when I want to use larger pictures or other things that won't fit in these page protectors, then I'll make traditional pages.
- I'm not trying to do one picture per day. I did try this in the past, but when deciding on my photos I was hung up on having multiple pictures of certain days and no pictures of other days. So, I had a hard time deciding and then my project never progressed. So, instead I am using whatever pictures I want in whatever format I want to tell my stories. And, it's going along more smoothly this time.
How do you tell your stories and keep your memories?
