project life: weeks 22 + 23

So I've been a project life fool the past couple of weeks. I think I've done eleven weeks? (and yet, I'm still only in mid-July) Once I caught up with the pictures I had already printed (weeks 18 - 21) I decided that rather than print pictures and then embellish and journal, I'd complete the spread digitally (using the templates I created previously for planning purposes) and print the completed slot fillers to simply slide into my page protectors. I know I could do it all digitally and print as a book but I do like the idea of staying "caught up" as well as being able to add extra page protectors between spreads for school work and art. I also want to have the option of adding embellishments after the fact if I really, really feel the need.

I'm just going to skip sharing those last few pre-printed photo weeks because frankly, they aren't my favorite. Plus, it is a pain in the ass to photograph and I'm never happy with how they present on the blog. With this new approach, I can share the digital image - much cleaner!

I have about 6 weeks done and ready to print but I'll spread them out a bit. Here are weeks 22 and 23:
products used: Let's Go Mini from Robyn Meierotto // Card Creator from Bananafish
I created that tweet image to use as an overlay. I used a card from the Let's Go mini, a screenshot of my tweet (changed the layer mode to "multiply") and then added the image (color changed to white, opacity lowered) If you'd like the png, just click and save :)

products used: Digitally Smitten from Digital Design Essentials
Wanna see what my prints order looks like? For the 3x3, 3x4 and 4x4" slots, I obviously mix and match. For the 12x6" slot, I broke it into 3 sections. I've done this before and honestly, when you adhere them to a sheet of cardstock, the seam isn't even noticeable.

I think this is going to work much better for me. At least until I can call myself caught up again!


  1. Love it! Your digital work is flawless! I'm intrigued by the process you mentioned above with changing the layter mode to multiply. I have no idea what that means but I'm going to play around and see. Babz510
