Project Life and my take on it…
Project Life has appealed to me ever since Becky Higgins launched it but because there was no Digital version I was always a bit apprehensive to try it. Well after following Liz from Paislee Press and her solutions and the fact that Project Life is now Digital (Check it out at Jessica Sprague) I decided to just go for it.
I knew I wanted a physical album that I can ‘see’ what I have achieved every week BUT I also wanted to incorporate digital elements and do some hybrid kind of goodies. I ordered the Clementine Core kit, Album and Page Inserts. I opted for one set/style page protectors to just make it easier for me…one less decision to make. I also got the Digital kit.
When I received my package well I was so excited I just HAD to test it out.
Here is the full page spreads…
I added a 8.5×11 Page protector for Chrismari’s art…I love doing this. I am so overwhelmed with all the stuff she brings home and this will be just perfect to display and store it.
I did a mix of Digital/Hybrid and using the Core kit.
I printed out all the photos and some of the tags. I had one photo at 3×4 inches and added a label with a title to it. The dates was added with a ‘date stamp’ from the Smash line. We made some cinnamon rolls and I printed out the recipe and added it to one of the 4×6 inserts.
This was a very bare bones cliff note version…my Mom helped me remember what we did for the week. I have been using Oh life to document every day’s journaling…now just to remember to take photos!!! lol.
I printed out on of the 4×6 cards and added some stickers to it so when I folded it it made this cute effect.
Some close ups on Journaling cards I printed out.
And a collection of Hipstamatic pictures on a 4×6 card.
So what I can take away from this…it took me way too long, I need something more simple. I am so excited about this NEW Action Set by Studio Wendy and this amazing post by Steph at the Daily Digi. This might just be the solution I need so will use it for this week and let you know if it worked.
