I think one of the big things this year is Becky Higgins Project Life, you can find more information, here.
I was grateful a few weeks ago that a fellow scrapper, Sally, was kind enough to send me some PL page protectors to get me starter.
But like I've mentioned in a previous post, PL is all about documenting life on a day to day, week to week basis, something I know I will never keep up so I've opted to do my documentation on a monthly basis, but using the PL format. Again, like last year I will be using my Studio Calico kits, stamps and other bits and pieces I can add.
So here are my January pages (sorry for the glare of the page protectors)
- celebrating Jon birthday
- noticing a rose blooming in my garden on 2nd Jan - amazing.
- yearly hospital check-up for James.
- Dentist check up for me and James
- James - Eye Test - resulting in him getting some glasses (he's still getting used to having these - I've managed to get a few snaps on my phone, which I will upload soon)
- new photos of me
- taking crochet lessons
- another cinema trip
- a visit to Sheena
- getting 'hooked' on crocheting.
I had decided not to do it on a weekly basis, but I did do four sides - one for each week, so there goes my plan already - lol. So I think the best thing for me to do, is just go with the flow and see what I produce each month.
The other thing about PL is that the format uses 'filler' and journalling cards, which is great if you haven't got any extra photos, so the other day I had a spare hour and made these, using my washi tape as decoration.
Done these on 6x4 card, so I can either add journalling or a photo.
I also received these from Two Peas in the post, 3 new sets from My Minds Eye (MME) and a fab one by Ali Edwards. love em.
love these ticket stamps - will be great for PL and my scrapbook pages.
love the hexagon design
and the set from Ali Edwards - love the sayings on these stamps, again great for PL and my pages.
Then I had a trip to Paperchase and came away with these,
More washi tape - love them
a mini tray - found this is the Valentine Section, not sure what I'll use if for, but it looks nice on my desk - lol.
And some butterfly and heart paper clips - well who can resist these.
Thanks for getting to the end, I hope you enjoyed my ramblings, and sorry for such a long post.
