Project Life Tuesday

The Mom Creative
Welcome to Project Life Tuesday 2012! If you are new to The Mom Creative, welcome. I hope you will stay awhile. I’m Jessica – wife to Matthew, mom to Elias, a silly and spirited three-year-old, and Adeline, a delicious, growing baby. I’m also a marketing professional, savvy deal finder, photo lover and memory keeper trying to juggle it all.

I started Project Life Tuesday in 2010 because:

  • I needed to keep myself accountable and on top of my photos each week.
  • My family loved being able to count on a weekly post with pics of the kids.
  • I thought others might want to keep themselves accountable too.

It was a huge blessing and so I am excited to be kicking off my third year of this series.

Each Tuesday, I will share my spread from the previous week, as well as host a linky for readers to link up their pictures/layouts. This year, Epson is sponsoring Project Life Tuesday, and they provided me with their Epson Stylus R2880 Large Format Photo Printer (C11CA16201) for many of my album’s photos. Printing photos at home is hopefully going to help keep me on track!

I ended last week three weeks behind on Project Life. I worked hard this weekend and was able to get two of the three weeks done. I made a video to share my layouts. I used some new 6×12 templates from Ali Edwards this week, and I love how they turned out.

Can’t wait to see your layouts.

It may have taken you longer to do the video but I really enjoyed it. It’s fun to hear your voice! I am glad you shared thoughts about Ali’s templates. I’ve also considered buying them but know I could make something very similar but good to know you thought they were still a big help.

I would never even attempt to do it since I am totally not a digital person (I really need to work on this) but I LOVE how the picture/writing on top insert looks. Very unique!

Gotta love those Ali Edwards templates! I love to use them also, but I have to do so sparingly because that means I have to spring for the 12×12 print from Persnickity Prints which costs me another $7. Ouch.

Could you just reduce them to 8×10 so you could print them at Walgreens? You could mount a two inch patterned paper strip to the bottom. Or you could divide the template and print the photo portion + the journaling portion, then adhere together. Just a thought!

How would I go about changing the size of the template to 8×10?

I’m not exactly sure the step by step, but I am sure there are tutorials… you can just modify the top and or bottom to allow for 2 inches to be trimmed.

Loved the video! It’s so nice to see and hear you. I’m coming to Nashville next week. Are there any local spots I shouldn’t miss??
