Project Life :: My Version of That One Little Word :: January 2015

I loved the idea of the One Little Word by Ali Edwards but it wasn’t exactly what I was thinking of. I needed something new, something that wasn’t open for all to see what I wrote. 

So I wrote bible quotes that I love, quotes that mean something to me, ones that I wanted to write why they meant something to me, and what the situation was that made me love it.

My word was Faith.

And I wrote the definition and used alphas to highlight my word.

This is what the back of my tags look like. I am not quite finished with them, but the year’s not over yet, right? 🙂

Then they slide right back into their pockets.

I hope if you find a project that you love but don’t like that particular process that you adapt it to what you want it to be. It’s your album, your life – make it yours!

Project Life Album :: October 2014

The month of October! What a fun month it was to choose the colors and cards for. Plus it’s fall- a new season, a new beginning. And apparently I love a patchwork of colors.

This is the left side of the double 12×12 October 2014 layout in my Project Life album.

I love using small pieces of paper and my Tiny Attacher.

The World Series- the amazing games they played! And babysitting a tortoise. (He is pretty cute.)

My first Project Life kit: Holidays and Seasons. I actually bought two and I’m still using both. I like the colors and the fonts.

This is the right side of the 12×12 double October 2014 layout.

I have a tag for every month to summarize what I did, and what the family did that month.

The tags can slide in and out. This month’s tag even has sequins and beads.

For this month, I also made a slide card for Halloween- just for fun. Text on one side and a photo on the other. I also used more sequins and beads on the skeleton eyes.

Driving a few hours out to visit our 99 year old aunt. I thought it would be fun to add a geotag to indicate a new location.

Here are both pages, side by side. The way they sit in my Project Life album. I think it looks very autumn-y. Happy Fall!

Mother’s Day: my mother and the other women in my life.

These women are so important to me. Each of them encouraged me to be who I am, accepted me for me, loved me, and helped me see how to be a better wife and mother.

Behind each woman: my mom, grandma’s, great grandma and mother-in-law, are tags that tell why they are important and special to me. The tags slide out so they can be read.

Each little element means something to each woman. I admit I went a little crazy with the glitter but a few of them loved glitter and sparkle so it’s definitely represented here.

Records, tickets, fine china, cat-eye glasses, pink, seam tape, papers…it all means something to me about them.

The Mothers Day and Fathers Day layouts will face each other in my 12×12 album.
