Project Life : Week 1 and 2

Somehow, I have not lost interest in this project over the last few years.  Sure, I may fall behind, but the fact that I have these tangible layouts to look through and see our memories that otherwise would have been forgotten (or at least a little fuzzy), it makes it all worth it.  I am totally on board for 2013.  This year I'm using the Seafoam kit...although I don't exactly have it yet.  I downloaded the digital Seafoam kit, and that's what I'll be using until it arrives.  Links at the bottom of the post.

So, here is what I came up with for my title page.
Since we neglected to take any professional family photos this year, I just grabbed some snapshots from the end of the year, and wrote up a little text on each family member.  It includes age, likes, dislikes, habits, etc... I also added a strip of digital paper to add some color.  The 3x4 pockets are just filler cards from the kit with the year.
Week one was a little boring, but we didn't really have a ton going on.  Every picture was taken with my iphone.  (I am not going to stress about that this year!)  I have used a ton of Rhonna Design InstaLovin elements on my photos.

Right Side
Again, since I don't have the actual kit, I just opened up the journal card .png in photoshop and typed my journaling rather than writing it out.  Everything is printed as a 4x6 photo from Costco, then trimmed at home.  It's just easier for me that way...and my home printer sucks!
Week two.
Left Side.
I love how my 2012 Clementine album turned out.  However, I strayed from the Clementine supplies, and often used many other types of papers and elements.  Looking back, it feels somewhat chaotic, so this year, I think I'm going to go straight Seafoam.  I would like it to be a little more consistent...but who knows, I might change my mind...that's kinda how I roll.  I switched up the title card, but kept the layout the same.
I saw this post over at Tracy Larson's blog, and it made me want to collage my unused Instagram photos.  Easy peasy.  Another thing I am loving is screenshots.  I love including text messages, conversations, face timing, itunes (see above).  My kids are obsessed with Call Me Maybe and Gangham Style...they are playing constantly, so why not document it.  We will have a good laugh at that in the future!  Speaking of having a good laugh in the future, I wanted to include all the technology I am using in 2013.  Phone, laptop, kindle, ipad.  Who knows what we'll have even next year!

So there it is...two weeks down, 50 more to go!

love the pages Sara. That seafoam kit is so pretty. I'm resisting the urge to buy it.

Love the color-pop from the dishwasher :) And what a great idea, to document the kids' favorite songs with a screen shot from your iPhone! I'm going to have to do this with my kids, too!

I'm like you girl.. Love my technology... iPhone, iPad, laptop!!!! I dunno what I would do without it. Love your layouts so far. I think I am just sticking to Seafoam this year too... It does seem to get a little too busy when use so many different things.

Hi Sara, it's nice to be here on your blog! I love seeing how you use the seafoam kit. I also tried to mix it up kit wise last year, and it turned out a bit messy, do I'm sticking with seafoam (you can feel free to remind me of that later!). What a great idea to record favorite songs and technology. It's so easy to forget that, but I know I get a good laugh remembering the music I used to listen to as a kid!

I love all the details you've included. You are doing a great job with the Seafoam digi kit. Maybe you don't even need the paper kit. I'm toying with the idea of getting the digi kit to supplement the supplies I still have but I'm afraid I would never print it out. I'm going to have to remember to document our playlists and our current technology. Thanks for sharing.

I followed a link to your blog from another blog I was visiting this morning. I love your take on Project Life! Your pages are beautiful. I'm ashamed to say how many (unused!) kits I have sitting in my spare room. You're inspiring me to pull them out and USE them!

Hi Sara,
You are going to be so happy years from now that you have things so well documented. Looks like you are all having fun. Your NMC family misses you :-)

Hello! I just found your blog by clicking "next blog" in the blogger header and had to comment. I bought all the Project Life pages and had great intentions but never did it. Haven't done it maybe is a better term. I don't have a good printer and I'm letting that stand in my way, as stupid as that may be. So can you share your secrets for creating great pages? Maybe you have and I haven't checked out your blog enough. Do you have your own printer, special computer programs, etc.? Thanks for sharing!

OK, totalyl inspired to start doing my pages! Love your examples, and I am sure to be stalking your pages for inspiration / encouragement! Did you mention stitching pages? Curious what that might mean?

You have a beautiful family and a wonderful attitude:-) (I read your "about me" and had to laugh... we have two girls 17 months apart. Not our plan, but God's- and I am so glad now for the closeness in ages. )
