2015 Project Life Title Page

With my PL 2014 album almost complete, it’s time to turn my focus to 2015. And that means I need a cover page. 

As we haven’t had professional family photos taken recently (although it is on the agenda for this fall) and most of my daily pics found their way into last year’s album, I knew I would have to get creative with the design. 

In the end, I settled on a black and pink/purple color scheme with gold accents. I think it looks fantastic! 

Page Construction Notes

The black 4×6 cards are from the W R Memory Keepers Blackboard Albums Made Easy kit. All of the 3×4 cards are from the Studio Calico Park Ave. PL kit. The “Twenty Fifteen” transparency is from the Studio Calico Far Far Away PL kit. The “Take a Deep Breath” and “Love This” transparencies are from the Studio Calico Transparency Set from the Cirque release. The “together” wood veneer is from the Heidi Swapp Color Magic Project Life Value kit painted with some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine. The round “incandescent” wood veneer is from the Little Words set at Color Cast Designs and is also painted with Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine. The embellies are from my stash. 


30 Days of Lists – December 2014

I’ve been a fan of 30 Days of Lists since I found the project in mid 2013. 

I really enjoy taking a few minutes each day to focus on a prompt, which can be whimisical, thought provoking, or down right funny, then formulate my list. 

As an added bonus, the 30 Lists gals create a closed Facebook group each go round where “Listers” can post their take on the day’s prompt. It is amazing to see the various ways people document their lists. 

Here’s my take for December. 

Days 1 – 6

Days 7 – 12

Days 13 – 18

Days 19 – 24

Days 25 – 30

December Daily 2014

For me, December Daily is more aptly called December Weekly. 

It’s not that I can’t keep up with documenting daily, I just am not a fan of mini albums. I would much rather have the whole year in the same place. I ended up creating 2 full 12×12 layouts for each of the 4 weeks leading up to Christmas. 

This year, our family had a pretty low key December. There were Christmas concerts and parties, but mostly it was about spending time together as a family, enjoying each other’s company and all that the season has to offer. And that seems about right. 

Week One: November 30th to December 6th

Week Two: December 7th to December 13th

Week Three: December 14th to December 20th

Week Four: December 21st to December 27th

Page Construction Notes

My pages were created using Becky Higgins Design A page protectors. I used last year’s December Daily kit, curated by Ali Edwards, and sold by Studio Calico. There may have been some one off journal cards and stickers from Christmas sets offered by SC as well. 

30 Days of Thankful 2014

For the second year now, I have participated in Kathy Zielske’s 30 Days of Thankful project. 

Each day during the month of November, I list one thing I am thankful for. Sometimes it is a business or service, sometimes a tv show or book, but mostly I focus on the people who fill my life with laughter and love. I find it is a wonderful reminder of how very blessed I am, especially with the holiday season right around the corner. 

Days 1 – 7 

Days 8 – 15

Days 16 – 23

Days 24 – 30

Page Construction Notes

This year, Studio Calico released an exclusive 30 Days of Thankful kit, designed by Kathy Zielske, that I used to document my list. As I am attempting to include all of the side projects I do throughout the year within my PL 2014 album, I placed my words and pictures in Becky Higgins Squared Away 1 12×12 page protectors. The 2×2 word squares were created with the Rhonna Designs app, then sized with PicStitch and printed with my Canon Selphy 900.
