Project Life 2012 - The Beginning

Oh Project Life how I love thee!

This is my second year of doing Project Life and I'm even more excited this year. After having completed a year I feel more confident in putting more of my own creative vibes to this years. But I'm going to do this slowly with little baby steps.

So far I've got my Title page finished - well minus our family photo which we're doing this Sunday on our Wedding Anniversary.

 
I incorporated a free printable '2012 - Memories Start Here' by Catherine Davis at Design Editor that can be found here. This is where I got the idea to include a small tag with all of our ages as of January, attached with a mini-staple.

The camera stamp i used was incredibly cheap at one of my favourite stores Typo and of course I had to add a coffee cup!
I also decided to include a map of where we live (I blurred my actual suburb name in the above photo for personal reasons). I simply Google imaged my suburb and choose a map that best suited my colour scheme then printed in onto a journaling card. If your not sure how to print from your computer straight onto journaling cards you can find a great tutorial at Paislee Press here.I do mine a little simpler by typing in a word document or just printing what a want then aligning my journalling card exactly where I want it and reprinting. I might need to do a future post to explain that better!

If you've never heard of Project Life you can check out this wonderful product by Becky Higgins here.

  2. Looking fantastic! Loving seeing all these different ideas that people use for their title page. I'm still undecided as to what I want to do with mine - I guess I'll keep waiting until inspiration hits me in the face :) Look forward to seeing more layouts during the year Kaz.

  3. I would love to see a blog post about how to print on journalling cards in Word (I don't have Photoshop, and I'm not fussed on how my own handwriting looks). PS - your 2012 album looks super cute already!

    Cheers,
