Project Life 2018 – Weeks 1 to 4

Today I’m sharing the first four weeks of my 2018 Project Life album. Truth be told, I’ve had a draft of this post saved for a couple of weeks now waiting to be finished and posted! As usual, life is pretty hectic but I’m doing what I can when I can to stay up to date.

This year I really am going to try to share my weekly spreads on Instagram and some more detailed shots on my blog on a regular basis. 

Week 1

I love the colours on this spread. Pink and yellow is a favourite combination for me at the moment. This week came together pretty easily using the January Citrus Twist Pocket Life kit. I think this is actually the first time I’ve included florals. I don’t know why but I’ve always shied away from them. To me they’ve never really felt like they belong unless there are flowers in my photos. I’m trying to change that mindset now!

Week 2

Another spread using the January Citrus Twist Pocket Life kit. I think there may have been one or two things from previous Citrus Twist kits in there as well. I’m not a big fan of greens usually but I like the softness of these greens so decided to go with it. I wanted to include a see-through element so found this great little cut files from Rachel Hodge which are available at The Digital Press. Link is here if you’re interested in checking them out.

Week 3

For this week I wanted to work with some of my digital supplies and put together a hybrid spread. I really love how it turned out and how quickly everything came together. I used the Messy Beautiful collection by Paislee Press which is available at The Lilypad. Link to the journal cards is here. I did recolour some of the cards to suit what I wanted and used some of the elements to create additional cards and embellishments. Then as usual, I used my typewriter to journal onto the printed cards.

Week 4

Nice and bright this week! I loved how well my week three hybrid spread came together so much that I decided to do the same for week four. I used another Paislee Press collection for this one called Backyard BBQ. Sadly though, I don’t think its available for sale anymore. But I loved the bright pops of pinky-red in this collection and how they matched some of my photos so well. This week I also used Instax printer which I got for Christmas. LOVE the added interest and texture of having those little instax photos on my spread. I also played around with drawing borders on some of my cards which I am really happy with. And look – MORE FLORALS!
