I rarely re-do cards/pages in Project Life, but I did replace the memorial card in Week 21. I just wanted it to feel a bit more special, so I used one of Ali Edward's digi stamps (from way back)....
And then I moved on to June. I was determined to "catch up" so that I didn't start resenting this project. I know that we talk alot about this project being easy & no-pressure, so I'll be clear in saying that I wanted to catch up for me. I like my weekend ritual of working on the previous week - and the weekday ritual of posting pages on the blog - so catching up was important to me.
Week 22. The picture in the top left is from Hope. She frequently texts me, and sometimes includes pictures from her tree-planting camp in Northern Ontario. She often says "this is for your Project Life thingy." Ha! Hello digi-stamp is from Pixels & Co. Even though I was working through a month at a time, I still took the time to add small elements - I'm always super simple, but little details still make me smile.
Week 23. A super full week b/c I was in San Francisco for work (& friends).
I started to just include this selfie, but then decided to make it more about what I was feeling as I headed "home" to the west coast. The quote is from my Pinterest "truth" board. I reduced the opacity of the photo to about 60% to allow the words to stand out.
More Week 23. I miss you, California.
Week 24. Not a lot of words, and I'm going to be okay with that. Quick trip to NYC. Loving that b&w conversions help to doctor up indoor lighting fails.
Week 25. Busy. Sunsets. Dark & Stormys. Popsicles.
Week 26. I knew that I wanted to use a 6x8 page to end the album. I originally intended to do a full page photo - but didn't have one that was "worthy." So I opted for a simple strip of colorful photos, grounded by my beloved kraft cardstock.
And that wraps up Volume 1 of 2014. It feels good. I closed with a few highlights using one of Cathy Zielske's Weekly Wrap-Up templates. I'll be working on the cover page for Volume 2 this weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!
