Here I will share why a started project life and my process of staying up to date.
This week I have decided to share my Project Life layout with you and how my process goes. I have not been doing Project Life long…so I am just a beginner but I have absolutely fallen in love with it.
Why Have I Started Project Life?
I have been interested in scrap booking for a quite some time now and have tried doing the traditional 12 by 12 layouts many times but I just couldn’t get the hang of it. When I first tried, I was very inexperienced and had just stepped my feet in the world of crafts, so everything was new to me. I have been crafting now for just over 3 years and during that time I have tried many different things. Some I love and some not so much. However, I just know I love documenting my photographs.
During this time I have documented my photographs in various different styles, such as in a Smash book, in a journal and handmade mini albums. I like to make mini albums to put my pictures in but there is only so many you can make before you start your own library of them…plus I wanted something where I could document my ‘everyday’ moments. Project Life is prefect to do just that…
I started Project Life in March, so my weeks start from then. I know I should of started my weeks from January but I hadn’t really took many pictures and I just wanted to get started, so that seemed like the right choice to me. (Just in case you are confused to why my week 5 is in April and not February) Anyway, after these 5 weeks that I have completed, I have finally found my grove and process to getting them completed and would like to share that with you.
I start my weeks on a Monday, so in preparation I sit on a Sunday night and go through my phone and pick which pictures I would like to document from that past week. Once I have chosen them, I edit the pictures then collage them in the app Pic Collage ready to be printed on my Canon Selphy CP910 the next day.
On Monday night I print off my pictures, normally a collage of 4 pictures on a 4 by 6 photograph.
Then I cut my pictures out and lay them out where I think they will fit best. I have been doing 2 page protectors per week, so I tend to but the start of the week in the first page protector and the end of the week in the second page protector.
I then go through my pattern paper and Project Life cards to find colours that kind of match in with my photos.
Although this week I choose white card stock…for a cleaner look with a pop of colour.
Then I just get to work… My process is very slow, as I watch Netflix while I craft. So it may take me 2 or 3 nights to complete. Maybe working on it for an hour or two a night, once the kids go to bed. But this works for me.
So this week I kept it simple by using white card stock. I did black dotted lines all around the sides of each one..kind of like a faux stitching look. I also stuck with one kind of washi tape through out, which is white with little black hearts on. (love that washi tape)
Here are some close ups…
Very simple title card with a cluster of heart punch outs and black gems to embellish…
