I am still doing single 12x12 Project Life pages, which are just highlight pics from each week. I am also doing normal scrapbooking of our life events.
The fun part, though, is that I have been able to knock out two album projects start to finish! I've done both of Chris' ultra marathon races. Who knows when I would've gotten to these, scrapbooking the normal way. In addition to being fast...the quality of these books is soooo nice!
I want to share these two projects with you!!
|The cover of the 50 Mile Run album -- I chose turquoise for this one, and it is |
a beautiful, bright color! I'm not sure what material the covers are made from,
but it is like butter...so yummy!! Soft and supple...love it!!
|The embellishment pack I used for this album went along with the turquoise theme...|
and I journaled throughout to capture all of the memories from that amazing day.
I chose to do an 8"x8" album, which is quite nice. I was doing 12"x12" printed albums,
and these are much more friendly for viewing I think.
|One of the great things about these albums is that they lay flat when you open |
them. There is no hump or gap. The assembly is superb.
|I chose red for Chris' 100 Mile Run album...it is just as lovely! Same yummy |
material, and the titles are engraved into it so you can feel it. The font is always the
same and the size is, too -- so there is always consistency there. I love consistency.
|For the 100 Mile Run, I chose an embellishment pack that coordinated with the red theme...|
|It's so easy to place the photos...I use the app on my phone, and the photos are |
already on my phone. For the 50 Mile Run, the photos were actually on my computer
instead...and Chris helped me transfer them into Drop Box, which I can then access
from my phone. It is super easy!! So I can go back and do this with a bunch of
themed albums that are needing to be done!
|Here's a side view, of the album spines...again, the font is consistent and the size |
is, too...so sitting on a shelf, there will be a lot of uniformity. My initial plan is to
do our normal life albums in black...and then any themed album I do will be in a fun
color. There is also a chartruse green I can't wait to see! And possibly one other color.
So, there you have it!! My first dive into Becky Higgin's Project Life albums...and I must say, I am loving it!!!!
