I know its a short hop this month, but we are hoping that over the coming months this will grow. I love Project Life, its a great way of documenting both important events, as well as the every day occurrences. This year, my wedding year, I am hoping to complete a full Project Life, with a page for each week. I hope that this monthly hop can help keep me on track, as well as giving you some inspiration and ideas.
I decided to use the Sale-a-Bration This Day Project Life Mini Card Collection for this short week of my Project Life.
I work a strange schedule in my day job, doing 5 11 hour shifts one week and 2 the next. This means that I do very little other than work every other week, and guess what, Week 3 was one of those weeks! Still, with trying to loose some weight and slim down ready for this Wedding in August Me and James went for a 7.5 mile walk one day, and as such giving me something for the PL album week 3!
I love the Project Life style of documenting. It allows you not only to document the big things in life; birthdays, weddings, births etc. but also it makes documenting the every day really easy. I wouldn’t have made a 12 x 12 page layout of us going for a walk, but a few pockets of Project Life is super simple.
Some weeks I do a lot of embellishing, some weeks less, and seeing as I don’t have much of a story for this week I haven’t embellished very much either. But this is one of the greatest things about Project Life – it doesn’t matter, you do as much as you like, as much embellishing, as much journalling, or just use photos, and it still looks awesome!
The Big Day Project Life Mini Card Collection is one of the Sale-a-bration offerings this year. It contains 30 cards, both 6 x 4 and 3 x 4, with a range of summery patterns and journalling cards. As I have mentioned before one of the many awesome things about Stampin’ Up! is the coordination between products, and this card collection is no exception, using Stampin’ Up! colours; Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, and Tangerine Tango.
I always make a title card for each spread in my Project Life album. I will often use stickers, seeing as I have quite a collection of Thickers from my previous life as a 12 x 12 scrapbooker. But today I have opted to use stamps! In particular a new set of Alphabet stamps from the Spring / Summer catalogue – Sophisticated Serifs, stamped in Rich Razzleberry to tie into the other cards in the layout.
As part of my title card this week I have also explained way there aren’t very many pictures of this week, and what the photographs are of. I love doing this, a kind of weekly round up.
