Hello! Well, I FINALLY figured out what I will be doing for Project Life 2015. I was mad at it (still) earlier today. I just wasn't satisfied with what I was coming up with...but then I realized that I was bored with my digital supplies. I also wanted a new set of page templates to work with, but I wasn't really excited about what I was coming up with on my own. So today I was looking at Sweet Shoppe Designs and found some templates I liked, along with some other goodies.
The page (above) is what I started out with, or should I say, it was like my 3rd draft. I knew that I wanted to use the "Week 1" card with the date, but that was like all I was confident about. I almost just settled for this. It looks ok, but I just wanted something different.
Yay! A big change I made for this year's project is to eliminate the boring, redundant, day-to-day journaling. Instead, I've been trying really hard to write down the funny things Jeralyn has been saying because, honestly, those are the things I want to remember.
I also wanted templates that were Instagram photo-friendly. Instagram photos are square and I was getting tired of hacking off so much of a photo in a 3x4 inch rectangle. So it will be nice to have that change. Although, there will still be lots of cropping going on.
So far, I don't have photos with labeling on them, but that may come in the future. But I would like to stick with what I've done so far with the little letter blocks/alpha to spell out different things. It would be fun to have that theme throughout.
So I'm changing things up a bit. You will also notice that I don't have 2-page spreads here. I will do 2-page spreads when needed, but I would like to have the photos be the main focus, not paper or elements, but also have the fun of using the paper/elements (if that even makes sense).
Thanks for stopping by!
