Each Tuesday, I share my most recent spread as well as host a linky for readers to link up their pictures/layouts.
This week I FINALLY got started on my 2013 album. I know, it’s February, but that’s how this year is going. I’m rolling with it.
I had literally done NOTHING prior to this weekend.
On Saturday, I created my folders system on my external hard drive for organizing all my photos (Project Life/2013/folder for each week), loaded all my memory cards’ photos & iPhone photos onto my drive and selected all the bests from each week.
Of course, I won’t use all Design A page protectors, but since it is the type of page I use the most often, I use it as a base. Then, if I need a different type of page protector one week, I just swap out the page.
I also went ahead and inserted a few extra bits of life into my album that I have been saving for once I got started on my album.
Pictured is a Jack and the Beanstalk book Elias made at school, a self-portrait + his name (using cards from the Bridgeport Edition), and my journaling sheets from my Day in the Life on Jan. 31. (I plan to do this once a month this year. Thanks to Ali Edwards for the inspiration.)
If you don’t have this list of 100 bits of life to insert into your Project Life album, I definitely recommend printing it.
This week I plan to stamp the dates on ALL the cards (I have found this is way easier than having to do it each week), sketch out each layout from the past 6 weeks, get the photos developed, print my oversized prints at home and start to get caught up. Next week plan on seeing several completed layouts. I’m so excited to get started. I can’t believe this is my 5th year doing Project Life.
Can’t wait to see your pages!
