Whilst I loved Project Life in 2013 I want to change some things up in the coming year...
I want to make this project simpler and quicker to complete each week.
One of the things that took up time this year was simply the placement and moving around of photos on journalling cards.
To try and speed this up I have gone back through my spreads and picked out some of my favourite photo and text layouts and made up some simple photoshop templates.
I am hoping as the year gets busier I can quickly pop the photos into the spaces and add text.
That's the plan anyway!
I have really enjoyed using the page template "A" this last year but I think it is time for a change.
For 2014 I am planning on using this page layout with square spaces
and this page layout.
Some weeks I will use both, some weeks I will use one.
I am also going to cut myself some slack- if there aren't enough photos I am just going to make one page! Phew!
I want to make my pages slightly cleaner in style and I'm starting off with making these page markers. One of these popped in each week to try and create a cohesive look. It also will help me keep track of the dates!
Using an app to write down what happens each day.
I am useless at remembering what happens each week so I am keen to get going with one of the many journalling apps and just writing a few words at the end of each day. Hopefully I can then use these as journalling prompts when I get down to making my pages.
Blogging about it every other week.
I have a confession. I don't love blogging about Project Life. But, I really enjoy reading about and gaining inspiration from the project life spreads on others posts.
My PL posts also receive a lot of traffic so I figure someone out there reads them!
Basically, I am going to strike a happy medium. I gain inspiration from others PL pages so maybe others will gain inspiration from mine if I post them. That said I don't want to overload the blog with PL posts especially for those of you who have no interest in the project. Posting the layouts every other week feels like a happy
Simple, easy and fun. I'm going to try and pair Project Life back a bit this year while still keeping a lot of Abi! Watch this space...
