Project Life 2013 | Week 1
Welcome Back to Project Life 2013!
This is the first year I'll be using Project Life to document a full year on a weekly basis. As many of you may be experiencing too, I'm starting this year in catch-up mode. At the end of January, I defended my clinical neuroscience Ph.D. thesis in Sweden. The last three months of my life were consumed by the process of preparing for January 25, 2013. All-in-all, the defense was a great success and I'm so happy to finally stamp this part of my career as DONE! So...to get up to speed, I'll be posting double-time for a few weeks as I get back into a regular schedule at home, work and crafty things. I'm very ready to get this party started, so let's roll right into week 1.
This year I'll be primarily using the Seafoam Core Kit and the Design A digital template (and page protectors when printed) as the foundation for my weekly layouts with the Seafoam album. The Clementine Core Kit will be making regular appearances as well.
Each week I'll create a digital layout and print out the photos to use with the physical core kit. I love the idea of having a paper album to keep the extra pieces of life that don't translate as well into a digital album. The digital album will be printed in a bound book at the end of the year. My new printer will arrive later this week (old one timely crashed in December), so I'll also have some catching up to do there as well.
Left side: (Top left) Each week I'll include a weekly review, with a daily approach to the week. I like to write (a lot). These cards will be journal-heavy using some of my favorite fonts: Bebas Neue, Rockwell Light and Coneria. (Top right) Photo Collages No. 1 by Designs by Lili at The Lilypad. The Hello 2013 card is a digital version from the January Project Life Studio Calico Kit that was gifted to wait-listers. (Middle) I'll be using the 3x4 Calendar Cards by Splendid Fiins to highlight the current week. (Bottom right) I enjoy writing down little things the girls say during the week, so the 'And I Quote' phrase will likely become a regular feature.
And that's a wrap for Week 1. Please let me know if you have any questions about anything I've posted here. More Project Life is on the way!
