2013 Project Life : Cover Page

I shared this on Instagram a few days ago, but want to record it in blog history. :) Here's the cover page for Volume 1 of 2013 Project Life...


This year, I'm using albums from Michael's - they're strikingly similar to the American Crafts albums. I bought 3 in solid kraft. The main difference is that these albums have a window in the front cover. Don't love that part...but do love the solid kraft! 

Other products notes - 

I'm using the Seafoam Digital Kit. I had been planning to buy the actual kit...but decided against that after I saw all of the new kits that Becky has releasing in the spring. I'd rather mix & match from the digi files - that way I can slightly adjust colors if I want.

That cool ampersand card is a freebie from a vegas girl at heart. The orange paper with circles is Heidi Swapp. The lower right corner is My Mind's Eye

The little "together" flag is October Afternoon - I cut a slit in the journaling card & the page protector to help hold the flag in. The washi tape covers up the cuts.

The map was inspired by Jen's map. I used Google Maps to get driving directions from here to Halifax, resized to 4x6, played with color a little, and printed. The orange brads mark Colchester and Halifx. Of course, I didn't notice until I was writing this post that I never actually drive according to these directions. I travel more up the coast of Maine to St. John, New Brunswick...and then onward from there. Now that's gonna bug me for a few days (and then I'll get over it). 

It feels good to get this album started - hoping to make more progress this weekend. How's your 2013 album shaping up?
