Welcome to the first month of my one little word® album. Today I share all my January pages with you. This is my fourth year picking a word and like the past three times January is always the most intense month because you have to cover so many different things. But it's such an important month too because you set the tone for your upcoming year.
As always I document the prompts from the class in a 5x7" album. I started with that in 2014 and it is just the right size for me (and I like when everything has the same size). For my cover I decided to recreate the pattern of one of the albums that was sold through AliEdwards.com. I stamped over and over with the words "one little word" from the 2015 one little word® stamp set (which isn't available anymore). And on top I added one of the printables that came with the class.
I took that photo of me primarily for my 2017 Project Life® title page. But now I use it for all those projects where I need a photo of me. The photo is 3x8" and I adhered it to a 4x8" piece of paper. This way I didn't have to punch through my face. The "jan" circle is from the class and I adhered it to a gold circle.
On the back of the 4x8" page I added a patterned paper and another class printable. All printables from the class are designed for either a 6x8" album or a 8.5x11" album. Therefor I have to adjust everything to fit my size.
I found that quote on Pinterest and thought it was perfect. This is what balance is.
For my "intentions" page I made a simple mindmap. I really like this method to get everything out of my head.
And that's it for now. How are you documenting your journey with your word? Did you pick a word? Let me know in the comments. I always love to hear about how others are doing with their word.
