Project Life: 2016

I'm back with another Project Life spread! I'm still working on my Japan trip slowly but I'm also recording my adventures for 2016. It's a lot to keep track but I'm having fun. I work on it during my free time which is limited right now because of the two jobs and crazy hours I hold.

This is the title page for my 2016 album. The page protect was actually 12 x 12 but since I'm working with 9 x 12, I sliced this one to a little under 9". Both pictures were left over prints from our Disneyland trip. It works because Jaime and I are Disney nerds and this album is abut our adventures which included a lot of Disney!! 

The 20 and 16 cards were freebies from Give a Girl a Blog. I made them shiny by running them through the Heidi Swapp Minc Foil machine. The quote on the bottom right which reads "Sometimes I pretend to be normal but it gets boring & I go back to being me." I felt this describes me a lot. The printable card came from Peppermint Creative.

On the back of the layout is a 8ish" x 12" photo of this huge bow and arrow that's along the Embarcadero Water Front. It's once of my favorite things and I had to include in my book. I then proceeded to stamp HEY THERE, and was going to add San Francisco under it but I don't have enough space. I'm debating if I want to stamp out SAN FRAN or searching the internet for smaller letter stamps.

Or I could just print it out again and leave it blank now that I know it won't fit with the size stamps I have. 

My plan this year is to do weekly layouts. Some of them have been random photos from through out the week or a specific event that take up the page. I took a page out of Kelly Purkey book and start the week with a solo a photo of me and add a tag with the Sunday date of that week. My weeks are Sunday-Saturday.

For the first week of January I add a photo of myself in front of the huge Star Wars display from my local cinema because I was still in full on TFA mode. I stamped the date using a roller stamp and stapled the tag right onto the photo. I added photos from New Years Day which we spent at a friend's house. All faces blur just because I don't know how they feel about being on my blog! The top left corner photo was a random shot I took that week. I found a NES and R2-D2 spray painted on the sidewalk. The quote on the photo was stamped from a Studio Calico stamp. To finish off the page, I printed out the General Leia Star Wars movie poster and stapled a movie ticket on it. We took Lilli to see it on the 3rd. I keep my movie stubs and I love using them in my scrapbooks.

I have a random card with a gold 1 on it to showcase the date & start of the New Year but the more I keep looking at it, the more I am hating it. I'm probably going to switch it out for something else. I don't know yet.

I'm still getting a feel on how to photograph my Project Life spreads. I did these this time on a white table and pull them out of the page protectors so I wouldn't have the glare like I did the last time I posted some! I'm slowly figuring it out!

I'm planning on sharing my completed layouts of the Fushimi Inari Shrine visit soon. I'm proud of those pages.
