OBSERVATIONS: This week was all about two things: Dan and changing up the color scheme. Lucky for me, Dan's best friend is a serious photog who sent me 650 photos from Dan's 11 days in Slovenia. I would download them from Facebook as I eagerly followed along with their daily adventures.
One of the photos, the image of grafitti that says "I love her," informed the color direction for this week. I decided to go with a drabish mustard. There's no law in Project Life that says you can't change up a week, right? I also went with more black and white photos than in past spreads, which I may continue here and there. I liked the monochromatic feel of this spread, with the litle bursts of color provided by Dan's Slovenian Adventure.
The other thing here? Dan. Featured heavily. And why not? I mean he's not hard on the eyes, people.
This week I created a few new products which will be on sale this weekend at Designer Digitals as well. Let's take a look at the pages for this week, shall we?
How fun is this? All Dan, all the time? Ridiculously fun, I'd say.
I used a Project Life folded card to write a more personal note about how vital this time apart for me and Dan was. You can read more about that here.
Here's my recap of the week with a new colored background in place.
One of my new products coming out this weekend is a layered 4 x 6 photo template set that includes simple black labels. Less wordy than Tiny Templates, there's just enough room for a sentence or a few words here and there.
You can change the color of the bars as well. Here, I wanted to continue to mustard theme.
And, a new month meant a new page divider. I'm not quite in need of a second album yet. I would say I'm going to have to break my Project Life into 2 binders. Mostly however, my pages are so flat that I really seem to be fitting a lot into the one I have.
And that is all she wrote for Week Eighteen.
Project Life, created by Becky Higgins, is a flexible, easy-to-use, highly customizable way to save your memories in a fun, stress-free way. Learn more about getting started with Project Life by clicking here.
Great pictures of Dan, like the b/w combo with pops of color. Fun everyday pics of kids, like the angles of Aidan’s. HOORAY FOR HER NEW PHONE!!
I like the new word bars you can write in, how fun that you can change the color also.
Thanks for sharing another awesome week with us!
LOVE the color scheme/black & whites – and yes, Dan is very easy on the eyes lol…!
I LOVE the new templates!! I NEED them! <–of course right?! You make my life so much easier…and I love taht about you and Becky! Ill keep an eye out this weekend! 🙂
Sounds good! They will be up for sale on Saturday. : ) And literally, on sale!
I just love that Dan took these pictures for you. Project Life has been encouraging my hubby to take more pictures for me too. He still isn’t getting in front of the camera. But taking a picture of his pile of chips at a Boy’s Poker night is a great start!
Like those photos so much.
I always love looking at your great pages Cathy.
And of course you can change up colours. I have a different colour theme each week.
Funnily enough my week also featured a lot of my hubby. But purely by chance really usually it’s mostly my kids. 🙂
He bought me a new 50mm lens this week (an early Mothers day present) 🙂 So I’m excited to see how the end of week 19 pans out.
I like you am all up to date with week 18 done and dusted.. Aaah happy days.
Thanks for sharing all your inspiration and ideas.
I like the black and white with the colored pix in the middle.
Looking forward to your new templates.
Change in subject…..
How does you son feel about his Flyers losing…..we are devastated. How did a child in Minnesota decide to like the Flyers? Not that that’s a bad thing….;)
Hi Cathy, love your pages…can you tell me what FONT and SIZE you have used for the BREAKFAST and HOMEWORK words thanks…I’ll definately be purchasing your little tags. Unfortunately for me I’ve only done Week 1 of my Project Life but have been keeping all my notes on “OH LIFE” daily to remember stuff. Just need to get my butt into gear as there is so much else going on. Kathy (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I love that Dan is away but he’s in so much of this week’s spread. Love it.
He was so, so bummed. I have no idea how he latched onto them, but he was a very sad boy. As in inconsolable for about an hour.
Kathy, the font is Archer, and Im not sure what the size is, because I already converted them to pixels, but Im guessing around 22 to 26. : )

What is the name of the serif font that you used on your layouts? I need me a good chunky (but not too chunky) serif. Thanks,
Archer by Hoefler Frere-Jones. : )
