2018 Project Life // January

It's been a long time since I last shared my Project Life pages on my blog. I took a break from Project Life last year to focus on finishing some mini books, and that means I'm super behind in my PL album. I haven't given up on it though, and I plan to work on both my 2017 and 2018 pages simultaneously. Today I'll be sharing my pages for January 2018! I haven't done 12x12 pocket pages in a while, so it was fun to go back to using this size. I still find 12x12 to be the best solution for my everyday pages, because I can fit a whole year into one album.

Here's a look at my spreads this month:


In a Creative Bubble productsHello 2018 cards (cheers card), Everyday Moments cards (today card, striped card, highlights card)

I thought this striped card was a great way to add color to my page. The large number stickers are from Basic Grey and they have been in my stash for several years. I'm down to the last few letters and alphas and I kinda wish I had more of them!


When I work on putting together my spreads, one thing I focus on is colour. That's why the yellow 'family fun' card works perfectly here; it coordinates with the yellow at the bottom of the spread (from the photos of my niece and the yellow notebook) and helps create balance in the overall layout.

In a Creative Bubble products: Everyday Moments cards (black card, real life card), Family Time cards (family fun card)

I wrote out 馬 (which means 'horse') with a brush pen, scanned the lettering, and added it to my photo in Photoshop. 




In a Creative Bubble products: Yes cards (snippets card), Around Town cards (local fave card), Spring Break cards (navy 'makes me happy' card)

I was inspired by recent adventures to make the Around Town set. The cards are perfect for documenting those days when you're just out and about in the city.


I had room to add a filler card to this spread, so I had fun layering some of my favourite supplies - an Ali Edwards die-cut heart (from the Heart story kit) + a Studio Calico chipboard circle + washi tape.



In a Creative Bubble products: Hello 2018 cards (black card), Recorded cards no. 7 (excited card, you are here card), Everyday Moments cards (Hello Today card), Snippets cards (red card), Around Town digital stamps

It was an awesome coincidence that my digital stamp fit perfectly inside the circle of this colourful mural.
