Project Life 2013: Week 26

I’m finally at the half way mark for this project and I couldn’t be happier! That’s now 26 weeks completed and ready for my 2013 Project Life album!


This layout took me 2 nights to complete. The first night was spent clipping in the photos following my planning template as a guide. The second night was spent choosing journalling and filler cards to use, scanning in a couple of extra pieces, and getting the journalling completed. Overall, it was put together pretty quickly though… About 10 minutes for the photos and about 45 minutes for the rest. I’ve realised keeping it simple for this project is the best way to go!


This week was all about rain, food, getting out professional photos back, buying my first ever indoor plant and celebrating Mum’s birthday on the Coast.


My overall thoughts on this project at the halfway point is that I love this project! I have so many stories told over the first 6 months of the year that I wouldn’t have otherwise recorded. Sometimes it feels like a chore to complete the pages, but when they’re done, it’s always so worth it! And I’m not going to lie… I don’t like every individual layout I’ve made, although I do love a few and like most of them. This project isn’t about the individual layouts to me though… The whole year of stories documented means so much more than that!


Supplies used: Design A digital templateSeafoam full digital kit (with some elements recoloured), Week in Review cards by Cathy Zielski, and quote cards from Elise Blaha. Fonts are Bebas and Travelling Typewriter, which are both free downloads.

    • Thank you, Mary! I love the simplicity of PL as well, with the focus being mostly on photos and words rather than products. It helps that the kits are super cute though 🙂

  1. So great, I love the “rainbows” card! I also struggle with not liking every page and I hope that with my practice this year, next year I can stay on top of the weeks/months and let go of the need for every page to be perfect! It really is about documenting the story, not the perfect layout! =) Thanks for linking up with us again!

    • Thank you! I love that card as well… It was a freebie I picked up from somewhere, but can’t remember where now. I know what you mean about the need to be prefect… Some weeks I tweak the pages for hours! Thanks for hosting the link up! 🙂
