I’m working on finalizing my “year 27” set of Project Life layouts and I’m glad that they’re coming along so quickly now that I have some Project Life-specific items coming to my door each month. That’s right, I finally bit the Studio Calico subscription-bullet so I will be able to get some fresh products each month instead of trying to force myself to use a HUGE kit for the entire year. I still have a TON of Seafoam and Midnight kit pieces, so if you’re interested, let me know.
My plan for the remaining layouts (and honestly, I think I have a handful of layouts that could use some help from “year 26”) is to keep things simple. I want to do the least amount of cropping as possible, I want to use up the products that are currently in my stash (especially now that that stash will grow each month), and I want to just finish.
These layouts are from last fall, which includes some fun things like:
- Going to San Diego to try to go apple picking (but went pumpkin picking instead)
- Attending a wedding and spending time with my highschool girlfrends
- Stan Lee’s Comikaze & Designer Con (that’s just a Dr. Who lookalike!)
- Portable Settlers of Catan
- Our move out of the apartment but before we moved back in
Yes, you’re seeing that correctly…more journaling in these layouts. Why? Too fill space, of course. I’m not big on journaling, I feel like my writing seems really fake when I journal and I feel like there is too much pressure with the whole spelling thing…
How do you keep up-to-date with your Project Life projects?
For more ideas on how to add more stories to your Project Life layouts, I’m going to recommend the Project Dig Deep ebook? I contributed to this ebook in 2012 and I still look back through it for ideas on ways to include my travels and adventures into my Project Life binders. Some of my favorite Project Lifers contributed to this ebook, too, and I’m still so inspired by their stories.
