2016 Project Life // Summer

It's been a while since I've shared my Project Life pages, but I'm still chugging along with my 2016 album. I made the decision earlier this year to continue working on my pages chronologically instead of jumping ahead to start my 2017 album. The primary reason was that I found if I left my 2016 album incomplete, it would be months or years until I actually went back and finished it, lol. Case in point - I did a major catch-up session in February, completing all the gaps in my 2013-2015(!!) pocket page PL albums. Yay for getting it done, but boy, did it take a while! So yes, perpetually behind, but still doing and enjoying pocket page documenting for everyday life.

Here are some spreads I recently finished, documenting last summer!

In a Creative Bubble products: Good Eats cards (fruit patterned card, diamond card), Perfectly Imperfect cards (orange/pink card)

I added an old pink Studio Calico label to the fruit patterned card to make a simple filler card. I thought the pink would pick up some of the colour in my niece's shirt and the ice cream.

In a Creative Bubble products: Watch List cards (green card), Rome cards (floral card), Spellbound cards (pure magic card), Local Wanderer cards (local wanderer card)

Instead of using the Watch List card to document just one TV show, I jotted down the names of all the shows I was currently watching and underlined the titles. I also added a chipboard music note tab to my Pure Magic card since I used the card to journal about a concert I had gone to. Intentional embellishments ftw.

For this spread, I wanted to balance out the dark fireworks photo so I added a navy blue business card (the one with three rice bowls) to the middle right pocket. This spread is one of my favourites :)

In a Creative Bubble products: Rome cards (yellow circle card), Forecast cards (blue/green card)

It's always fun incorporating some ephemera in my album. I cut up a paper bag from a local ice cream shop to fit in the 4x6 pocket (the bottom left pocket), and I simply used that as my journaling card.

In a Creative Bubble products: Watch List cards (blue card), In Review cards (simply the best card), Perfectly Imperfect cards (yellow card)

In a Creative Bubble products: Summer cards no.1 (blue summer adventure card), Perfectly Imperfect cards (blue/green floral card), Olympics 2016 cards (red team card), Let's Chill digital stamps

I like looking for 'white space' to add digital stamps to my photos before printing. Here, I used one from my Let's Chill set.

I have September - December of my 2016 album left to work on. Not too bad...I'm getting it done slowly and steadily :) Thanks for taking a look! Happy weekend! xo.


  1. Hi Geralyn, your pages are always so nice and colorful and I always look forward to your next designs! I have a question about your page protectors: they look like Becky Higgins Design "A". Mine are divided differently: row 1 and 3 have (2) 4x6 pockets but yours have (2) 3x4 and (1) 4x6 on the first and third row. Where do you get yours from? Thank you!

    1. You're right - these are Design A. I just altered them with a fuse tool to suit my needs because I never need that many 4x6 pockets! I fused the first and third rows to change the (2) 4x6 pockets into (2) 3x4 and (1) 4x6 ones. Hope that helps!

    2. Thank you Geralyn. I might have to try that!
