Project Life 2014 | Here we go!

For the first time in ever I made a cover page and I am sticking to it.  Of course I left a few blank areas for a picture of the new baby or a family picture maybe.  I had so much fun once I got started with this page that I made two more.

I started with a design F page cut down to 9x12 so it would have more of an 'insert' feel, separate from the usual spread.  I knew that I was going to include the 'fly me to the moon' overlay, (it was my whole reason for buying the Studio Calico Union Meadows kit in the first place.)  Most the stuff made it in as I picked little things from around my craft area.  Like the cosmo cricket wood veneer card and the old chic tags hearts journaling card (reminiscent of an ee cummings book cover). 

The very cool doodle paper and Kal Barteski/Amy Tangerine phrase are new items.  I got a few things from the new plus one line and am digging them all.  Trying to stay away from buying too much new paper though. 

I realized after I made this page that I included a rainbow here.  Pink to red to the yellow/green/blue ombre tape.  I love it.  Subtle but awesome.  Including all the colors of the rainbow on a page just really appeals to me.  In truth the only reason I added the strip of tape is because I was vacillating about whether to match the straight and rounded corner cards.

I had a rounded corner card and straight letterpress card next to each other on the back.  The rest of my cards are rounded.  I wanted to include this 4x6 card on the front, but I didn't want to corners hanging over both edges.  I ended up trimming the card by about an inch so at least half the rounded corners shown through. 

Instead of transitioning to 'regular' PL pages right away, I continued the title page over the next two pages.  The blank space is for a baby or family picture (ETA : NO IDEA.).  Mostly just a random collection of some of my favorite cards at the moment.  Three different woodgrains.  Pink, blue, brown, and grey.

The color story is repeated here: pink, teal, silver, and a touch of kraft and red.  Lots of white.  One more pocket is blank here. I used my remaining acryclic shape from the Dec FF kit here as well. 

Love the look of kraft with silver.  These chunky glitter thickers are especially fun.

 The PL kits I am using generally are the Studio Calico kit, and Midnight kit, with multi-pack page protectors.  You can see all of my Project Life pages here.

  1. I like how your pages turned out.I was considering doing project life this year but, haven't as of yet. I do enjoy scrap- booking & journaling. Dropping in from sits today! Theresa @DearCreatives

  2. Love it! I love those FF frames - I already used the heart one in a friend's scrapbook and kind of regret I didn't keep it for my own :D I think my plan is to do a 12x12 PL for 2014, but only one layout per month, and then add other "regular" layouts, stuff from preschool, etc.

  3. I love your scrapbook pages! Stopping by from SITS! Leanne @TexasCraftyKitchen

  4. Your book looks beautiful! I would love to do a project life book, but I don't know if I would have the patience - and remembering to print stuff is not my strong suit! haha.
