Today I share my January spreads of my personal Project Life® album. I can't say it enough, I just love this little album of mine. To have a place for all the little stuff I collect through the month and to keep my many photos I take.
The striped card as well as the "my story" stamp and the phrase stamps below the 2017 are from past Story Kits™ and Story Stamps™. The number stamps are from Kelly Purkey (not available anymore) and the 3x4 "this year" card is from JamaicaMakes.
Each month I start with a title on the top left. I don't follow chronologically through the month. I just combine stuff whenever it makes sense, mostly similar stories/projects are together. On the right I included a 5x7" photo directly into my album. I like to change things up throughout the album.
This spread is something I plan to include every month. Because space is limited and I don't want to fill more than one album per year I decided to create a collage where I can collect several photos but don't have to use that much space. Each small photo has a number and on the left I wrote something about those numbers (photos).
On the left is that 6x8 page I showed you in this blog post two weeks ago. In January (and December 2016) I received some new-to-me wool from different brands. I always like the packaging of those orders and decided to just add them to a 4x6 card.
The focus of my last double spread is on my knitting and sewing projects I was working on in January. The 3x4 card with the smaller photo is a free template from Cathy Zielske which I LOVE to use.
That's it for January. What about you? Do you keep a personal Project Life® album as well? If so, please share a link in the comments.
WHAT IS A PERSONAL PROJECT LIFE® ALBUM?
It's an additional album to our family album. In this album I tell my own story. It's all about my projects, books I read, important text messages/e-mails I get, what I eat and drink, basically stuff I share on my Instagram account.
