Happy Tuesday, friends!
I have my second week of Project Life completed! It feels so good to be on top of things right now...makes for a great start to the new year, eh?
I've been really conjuring my inner minimalist for my Project Life spreads this year. I like the freshness and ease of the way it looks as a whole. It also helps me save a little time and hopefully all these things will stick so I can get to Week 52!
I used my Project Life Seafoam Core Kit that I downloaded from AC Digitals, some journaling and filler cards from the Day by Day class, and some bits from my January SC Kit, Block Party, for this week's spread.
I used a template from LifeLovePaper for my photos to make them look like polaroids. The template was from a past Studio Calico class, but I use them ALL the time :)
I want to remember to stick a photo of the week's weather in each weekly spread. I do that by clicking down on the reset and home button on my iPhone at the same time (that works for any screenshot you want to photograph). Being a farmer's wife, it seems that my whole life depends on the weather so I thought it would be a nice way to document it. Especially since it changes so quickly where I live!
I also try to use up random bits and pieces of things I have lying around on my craft table...I like when I can use something up in this way.
For some reason (when I attempted this project last year) I thought I had to fill up every pocket with photos and/or journaling...this year I'm really enjoying using "filler" cards to help bring my spreads together and seem more cohesive. Plus, they give me a chance to show off a little creative flair, ha!
And there you have Week 2. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
