I’m finally getting around to sharing my pages for the month of January. I’ve been meaning to post but keep getting sidetracked. Can you relate at all? (And by the way, speaking of sidetracked… if you are still hoping to play along with my challenge in the post below…I’m keeping it open a little longer, so there’s still time!) I’ve talked before about how I decided to attack Project Life on a monthly basis rather than a weekly one. It really works so much better for me and I still feel like I’m documenting little things, moments, and life that wouldn’t necessarily end up on a scrapbooking layout but on a smaller, less daunting scale. Here’s what I did for January:
I like using the Design A page protectors as my base pages and then use other inserts that are smaller/shorter to add more space in between. This month I chose to cut down a Design F (in half basically). I love that I got more 3×4 spots to use this way! Here’s the left side:
I cut “January” with my Silhouette (I think it’s the Contribute font). The rest of the inserts are either from Geralyn’s In a Creative Bubble shop, the Studio Calico PL kits, Clementine kit from Becky Higgins or the free month printables from FindingNana (my January card printed small for some reason – I think I printed from “preview” instead of Photoshop…that’s why it’s smaller than 3×4!) Here’s the right side with the insert over it.
And then the insert flipped over and you can see the back of it and the rest of the Design A beneath.
I like to have more photos than fillers, journaling or text on the photos, and then simple embellishments. I’m still sort of finding my groove with it, but I love the first month! Only 11 more to go!
