I’m finally getting around to sharing my pages for the month of January. I’ve been meaning to post but keep getting sidetracked. :) Can you relate at all? (And by the way, speaking of sidetracked… if you are still hoping to play along with my challenge in the post below…I’m keeping it open a little longer, so there’s still time!) I’ve talked before about how I decided to attack Project Life on a monthly basis rather than a weekly one. It really works so much better for me and I still feel like I’m documenting little things, moments, and life that wouldn’t necessarily end up on a scrapbooking layout but on a smaller, less daunting scale. Here’s what I did for January:
I like using the Design A page protectors as my base pages and then use other inserts that are smaller/shorter to add more space in between. This month I chose to cut down a Design F (in half basically). I love that I got more 3×4 spots to use this way! Here’s the left side:
I cut “January” with my Silhouette (I think it’s the Contribute font). The rest of the inserts are either from Geralyn’s In a Creative Bubble shop, the Studio Calico PL kits, Clementine kit from Becky Higgins or the free month printables from FindingNana (my January card printed small for some reason – I think I printed from “preview” instead of Photoshop…that’s why it’s smaller than 3×4!) Here’s the right side with the insert over it.
And then the insert flipped over and you can see the back of it and the rest of the Design A beneath.
I like to have more photos than fillers, journaling or text on the photos, and then simple embellishments. I’m still sort of finding my groove with it, but I love the first month! Only 11 more to go! :)
