Hello!! I'm taking a very quick lunch break today to share Week 7 of Project Life.
In order to create a page protector to fit Owen's art I cut down a 12x12 page protector to approximately an inch or two more than I needed and then used this very old washi tape to seal the edge. This is a super quick alternative to sewing page protectors to unique sizes.
You have seen this before, here is where I shared the details about the horizontal journaling cards.
Much of what I pull into my album that is not a product of Becky Higgins is from my stash & I encourage you to do the same. Use what you have!!However, I do have a supply list so if there is something in particular you have a question about I'm happy to answer.
I used the following Becky Higgins Project Life products:
Design A Page Protectors
Design G Page Protectors (available now) *these are a go to for me
12x12 Page Protectors (available now)
Clementine Core Kit
Cobalt Core Kit (available now)
3x4 Journaling Cards
Many of you mentioned that you liked seeing where I was at in the process. I am happy to continue sharing in hopes that it reinforces my message that I am not focused on "caught up". I read that phrase at the beginning of many of the project life posts I read and it gets me down that it appears that we beat ourselves up on not being current.
I cannot stress enough that this is a year long project and while yes, there is value in engaging frequently and always touching the project there is no shame in not being current up to the week that just ended!! I could be wrong, but I believe that there are many of you reading that are not photographing your prior week layout and blogging your layout every week. I believe there are many that are simply doing this for themselves and their families. So especially to you I say this is a year long project. There is no pressure to be current.
OK, off my soapbox. Sorry for that.
I am so very proud of myself because on Sunday I stopped avoiding Week 6 (the week with Day in the Life) and now have everything in its place. All I need to add is my journaling which is the fastest part for me in my process. Woooohooo!!
