Project Life 2013: Week 2

Two weeks of Project Life complete and I think I’m hooked! I’ve never documented so many little details from our everyday life like this before, and I really love this format… It’s super quick and easy to get lots of stuff documented, and it’s super fun completing this on the computer through Photoshop. I still find it a little challenging, but I really do enjoy learning something new like this.


I decided this week that I would start including a few more neutrals in the layout. While I’m hooked on the bright colours, I don’t want to use only brights and then get bored by the colour options before the end of the year. I’m still amazed at how versatile this kit is though… I look at Elise Blaha’s pages and they look so different to mine because she’s used more neutrals, and I really do love the look.


This week didn’t take me anywhere near as long to complete. I think start to finish, it was about 3 hours, and that’s with filling in the planning page, and actually assembling the page. It turns out I didn’t take all that many pictures throughout the week, even though I had lots to document, so I ended up writing A LOT, as you can see! I like the mix of adding in lots of journalling, though. I also made an effort to date more of the journalling as well. I plan on making an effort to date, or at least label the days, for most of my photos and journalling throughout this project… I think it’ll be more interesting to look at later on down the track, where I can start seeing how our routines evolved over time.


Supplies used: Design A digital templateSeafoam full digital kit (with some elements recoloured), elements provided in Jessica Sprague’s Digital Project Life class, and quick shapes from Photoshop (people shapes)

  1. Looking good! I am doing mine at the end of each month as I hate getting photos printed each week. I don’t have the patience to do it digital! Just editing the photos to the correct size driving me insane! Also, do you still do 12 by 12 Los?

    • Thanks Erin! I know what you mean about how tedious photo resizing can be! I think I prefer doing the digital pages more than just resizing though… Seems more creative then! I’m making the pages 12×12, but I’m unsure about printing at the moment… I was thinking of printing 12×12, but then I’d have to buy page protectors to use, where as I already have design A protectors, so I’m leaning more towards printing the individual photos and putting them in the already divided page protectors at this point. I’ll update here once I decide for sure!
