Project Life, Week Forty-Five

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking21 Comments


OBSERVATIONS: This week was all about journaling cards. Why? Well, I designed some new ones that I really like, and figured, let's go for repetition across page one. All journal cards. All the time.

Part of what I love about Project Life is that I can create anything I want to fill in the stories as I go. Over the course of the year, I've definitely latched on to trends in fonts and approaches. I actually love the freedom to change it up as I go. I hope to be designing a lot more of these printable cards. You don't need Photoshop to use them, either. Just Adobe Acrobat, a printer and some cardstock. 

Here are my pages for last week:


(Yes, there is a Sad card, and sometimes, we have been asked by the family to keep some things off the table.)


The second page features another new set of cards. These are fully layered PSD journaling cards. You drop in photos or paper—whatever you like—and print them onto cardstock for use in your albums.


Yes, last week on my Facebook page, I shared a series of scrapbooking memes, much to the horror of my 13-year-old, who probably thinks his Mom has no business doing memes. But come on! They're scrapbooking memes. How awesome is that?


Note: the digital papers I dropped into my cards are coming to the store this weekend.


And that's all I wrote for Week 45.

    WOW, Cathy you are amazing with PL this year. I LOVE the way you keep creating new cards for us to use. I LOVE that you enjoy PL so much and always keeping it FUN!!! These new cards are GREAT, not surprised since all your ideas are AWESOME!!

    Seeing all the journal cards in a row makes for a nice flow. I love what you wrote about your trip with Dan to the store. My hubby and I have been making little trips like this to Walmart, that little hour is the highlight of my week.

    That Cole is a whitty kid just like his parents, your hair looked so cool!

    Thanks for sharing another week of your life with us and even a day early!!!

    Love the new journaling cards!
    Also sorry you have a ‘sad’ card 🙁

    I’m glad to see that someone else *likes* running errands with the hubby as a sort of togetherness time. My hubby thinks I’m crazy (but he goes along with it anyway.)

    Ok…. totally out of the loop… what are ‘memes’? Off to find a dictionary.

    Lovin’ the pages & new cards. Used them for our golf league results digi pg… I was asked (aka sucked into) being photographer & creator of yr book. That’s what happens when you show up once w a ‘real’ camera. LOL.

    “All journal cards. All the time.” <— made me chuckle inside. 1984 flashback. "I want my _____ ." Which came well before Dire Straits' "I want my/I want my/I want my…" (Left unsaid so that others can try to figure it out.) Fellow 46yo here. 🙂

    Ritt Momney – that is hilarious! 🙂 I am just catching up on posts, as somehow the final quarter of 2012 completely swallowed me up and I missed out on “normal life” (which apparently consists of reading about your “normal life”. Ha!
