*If you aren’t familiar with Project Life, you might want to start here.
At the end of the month, I pick my favorite photos of each of us and a little blurb about what we did that month. I like these to be laid out more like traditional scrapbook pages, but I am working with the page pockets of the weekly spread on the back of the cover page. I pretty much ignore the pocket breaks, lay it out the way I like it, and then cut the photos and papers to fit. I try not to cut through the center of someone’s face or the middle of words so that breaking things into pockets doesn’t effect the readability of the page. I also don’t round the corners of pieces that are broken up, so that it is apparent that there is one photo block spread over multiple page protectors.
I forgot about my February cover page, so I made that today too! Sorry about the poor image quality; this page uses American Crafts page protectors, and the divided protectors are much thinner, wavier, and reflect light badly. This is strange, because the American Crafts 12×12 protectors and 6×12 protectors I use are great. For divided protectors, I’m defiantly favoring We R Memory Keepers, but the Becky Higgins Project Life brand is awesome too.
My friend Allie brought up mixing old and new products in this Two Peas thread, so I took up the challenge and used old Love, Elsie rub-ons for the title and used up a whole pack of old Valentine’s rub ons from K & Company to create a “patterned paper”. I punched holes from the rub-on decorated paper and added them on (detail below).
Are you doing Project Life? Are you going to make traditional layouts this year too? What will you do with them?
