Project Life 2012..

Week in photo's January 30- February 5th
Project Life. .. still fun..
still loving the size of my album.. so much that I went to get another for next year..
this is what I am using for anyone that wants to know!!

it is a 4x6. 4 pockets on each page. This photo album comes in all sorts of styles.
You can find it in your photo section at Walmart..
retailing for $12.96 CND.. so probably cheaper
in the USA.. best part.. you get in total 440  pockets.. that is more than enough for this project.
 I think I will not change my cover for this one.. I like the Paris feel to it.!!

For the photos, I am actually going to print them at home.. I am using Satin Photo Paper from
Staples, and using my Brother Printer , printing them in 3.5 x 5 so I have the white space around
the photo to act like a frame.. the patterned papers I am cutting 1inch x 4 inches.. this will make up
the extra inch I need for everything to be 4x6.. mine is just alittle over 6 inches long to fill the pocket.

So here is this weeks..
For the Project Life tabs with my journaling I am printing some of the digital title spots in 4x6
and you will also see in this weeks that I have done some in wallet size to fit my baseball pocket pages.  This gives me more versatility in using the digital instead of the store bought ones. I am
getting all my Digital elements from Jessica  

Using my stash.. the letters are from Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey, Authentique and Pink Paislee.
I have some Bella Blvd sticker borders in here too. The papers are all Project Life.

there we go.. another week done.. I have a system set up for doing this and it is working.
I am just spending minimum time Saturday night printing most of my photo's , setting them in my
album and doing the  journaling paragraph of my week happenings.. I am finding that not having
to journal everyday, on individual cards, is making my life more enjoyable with this project.

Hope you give this a try.. I am just loving it!!

this will be posted on Project Life Tuesday.. mine is one day early.. only because of
my blog post on Tuesday's. Sketch Art Tuesday..
thanks so much for coming and checking me out. I appreciate all your wonderful comments
each week.. this makes me happy!!

Every Tuesday you can find lots of inspiration on Project Life users.

Have a great day

Wow Angie! That is such a great idea! I love it! I am going to have to look into this... right after I figure out what new printer I want to buy since my printer will no longer feed photo paper :(
