In the past few weeks I was thinking about how I want my Project Life to look like in 2015. And this is what I've come up with.
what will be different
- no more weekly spreads. I want to focus on the whole month instead
- only one album for the whole year. In the past two years I used two albums per year because I couldn’t fit one year into one. But then I imagine myself in ten years. I could have twenty albums or ten albums. Ten clearly wins.
- I want to include more stories. So far the photos have been the main focus. This is okay, but I want to include more words to tell a better story.
- I plan to use a variety of different page protectors. So far I always used Design A because I wanted to keep it cohesive. I do have so many page protectors at home and I want to use them all up.
- I have two Project Life Core Kits. The Midnight Edition and the Sunshine Edition. Because of my subscription to the Studio Calico Project Life Kit I almost never used the Core Kits in 2014. I want to incorporate them more again because it makes documenting so much easier and you get a good looking spread so easily.
what will stay the same
- I will be sharing my pages monthly on the blog.
- I plan to use inserts again again. Inserts are a great way to include a longer story or more photos from a bigger event.
- I will print at home again. This is expensive, yes. But it makes it so much easier for me. I can print photos whenever I want and in the size I want. I use an old HP Photosmart
- I will use the SC project life kit to embellish my pages. I subscribed for the Project Life kit in October 2013 and although there are always things I don’t like or don’t know how to use I am more than pleased with the contents.
Because I plan to work on my spreads once a month I need a place to keep my notes about what was happening during the month. I will use a plain Moleskine notebook for this.
Rachel, Caylee, Kellie and Kelsey wrote about their plans for 2015 as well. Although it's the same project we are doing everyone is doing it in their own way.
