Video | 2017 Project Life Week 1

Hi guys! I'm back today sharing a Project Life process video with you. This is Week 1 for my 2017 Project Life album and it feels really good to get going on this album. I'll still be picking away at the remnants of my 2016 album because I am very behind on that but I wanted to keep moving forward as well so that I'm not behind on two years! I'm excited to try and produce weekly videos for you guys because it's a great and interactive way for me to give more insight into my process and my thoughts while creating. I'll share some details of the spread at the end of the video and I'm sharing more details below along with links to as many products that I used and could find for you guys! Check it all out!

New Year, New Plans

Hi guys! I got so wrapped up (literally) in the December festivities that I didn't plan too far ahead for my 2017 Project Life which is why I'm just now getting around to sharing my plans! I've prepped some cover pages for the front page of my album and each month's divider and I got my album ordered but who knew it was getting harder and harder to find 6x12 albums! What's with that?! I had to order an album color this year that I'm not too pleased with but I plan to remedy that with some leather paint and I'll share a DIY tutorial later this month for whipping your album into colored shape too! See below for my 2017 plans and goals!

Freebie Project Life Cards

Hi guys! If you follow me over on Instagram you may have noticed that I'm in the midst of a year-long lettering challenge and I know that it is taking some of my attention away from scrapbooking lately so I wanted to share the love in the form of a freebie! I've prepped a printable pdf for you to download with three of my favorite pieces from my challenge thus far! You'll get (2) 3" x 4" cards and (1) 4" x 6" card in this download! I hope you enjoy and if you use them in a project, I'd love for you to share them with the #thepapercurator!

Project Life Flow

Hey guys! I’ve been feeling kind of overwhelmed with my Project Life lately. My workflow just wasn’t serving me very well and it was stressing me out. The entire point of Project Life is to be FUN! So I stepped back for a while and let it marinate when all of a sudden–genius struck me. Well, I think it’s genius and I’ll tell you why!
