Project Life 2013 - weeks 1 & 2

Taking a two week hiatus sure messed with my mojo!  Getting back in the swing was hard, adding a new protectors to the mix sure had me doing a lot of head scratching on Monday.  I'm still not convinced this will work for me but I'm going to give it some time.  I'm choosing to think that uncomfortable feeling I'm having is a good thing and it goes with one of my goals this year, challenge myself more. 

Let's get on with week 1

I loved the Studio Calico Project Life kit and really want to use as much of it as I can.  Many of the inserts this week came from it.

One of the things I wanted to try was how to turn some of these 3x4 slots on Design F into a 6x4 if needed.  I managed to figure it out for the resolutions card but plan on tweaking the design just a bit more.  I'll post how to's for all my flip ups soon for sure.

I love having the Seafoam kit in its digital format.  I love that I can change things as needed, including recoloring. For instance the card with the ! is actually a 3x4 journaling card that I enlarged to fit in the 4x6 slot.

Here is week 2

One thing I wanted to do more of this year is tell longer stories and write a bit more.  I felt last years album could have used a lot more of that.  Having two extra slots with this protector combo will hopefully allow for that.  I was able to get quite a bit of text in one little 4x3 slot.

I think the thing I'm struggling with the most with this combo is that things are not in order.  That's just how I'm wired.  I want things to flow and go in chronological order.  That being said I'm kind of digging the ability to highlight 4 photos a week in the larger 4x6 slots so I'm giving it a chance and will continue to evolve the process.

I hope your 2013 has started off well, thanks for stopping by.
