It has been one heck of a month! Winter has reared its ugly head! We have had soooo much snow, its ridiculous....and we're getting another 4-8 inches tomorrow...ugh. But I have been slacking on my blog and not posting any of the layouts. Good news, I'm not one day behind on the actual process of Project Life! Yay! Still so in love with this project and going on my 4th year! Yay me : )
So here is an overview of my title page and my January spreads.
For the title page I used Just Jaimee Storyteller December 2013 line. LOVED this whole line.
I started this year out exactly on January 1-4...this meaning week 1 consisted of January 1-4. So the left side of my layout was our resolutions and a few random pictures. The right side was the end of the week. I used Just Jaimee again. But this time I used the January Storyteller 2014. I also used a button from Studio Calico. I decided this year I would subscribe to the Studio Calico monthly Project Life Kit. They also have a card kit & a scrapbook kit on a monthly subscription. I can not even begin to express how much I love these kits! I am like a little kid waiting at the mailbox when I know that kit is in transit! I love all the different goodies I get each month. Check it out, well worth it!
Week 2: I used Simple Stories Daily Grind line. I love the rainbow colors! I got these from 2 Peas. I use the stickers and elements on many different weeks. Super cute! The last card is from the Studio Calico PL kit "Copper Mountain". I have to add that their cards are of the best card stock I have ever had my hands on!
Moving right along. I am going to add, while being snowed in and waiting the new Strawberry PL kit, I was forced to buy all the kits I had previously had digitally. My addiction is getting pretty scary...
Ok, so moving right along... Week number 3 was actually one of my favorite layouts! I chose the Kraft edition and chose only the red cards. I LOVE the result! I also used some Dear Lizy elements, Studio Calico and Doodlebug letters.
Cute, right?? I also added another page, Design J. I had a lot of pictures for the week. I actually used my Silhouette for the "READ"cut out. Also I am a bit addicted to the wooden elements from Studio Calico.
Week 19-25, I used the new Maggie Holmes at Michaels. I love that I can use a 50% coupon and get a full core kit for $15 buck...can I hear an amen? I have been getting away from using the traditional 4 x 6 pictures and using a square picture and using a bit more embellishments. I only use this when I have a bit of extra time. And since we have been snowed in quite a lot this month, I was able to embellish quite a lot!
And finally, last week. In this layout I used mostly digital elements. I loved Misstiina's LIVE.LIFE.HAPPY line. See has the cutest elements ever, & I love how they all match.
I also added a few "What we are.." watching, eating. I like to document this to see how much we change from year to year. I am also going to include what we are: playing, reading, listening to.
So here is the first month of my Project Life! Sorry it was so long. Starting next week I will be posting weekly....not monthly! I believe Jessica is back to Project Life Tuesdays...yay!! I missed all the inspiration! I will be linked up with Jessica over at The Mom Creative Blog.
