Project Life, Week Fifty-One

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life12 Comments


It's almost done. The entire year. Honestly? The fact that I did this album every single week of 2012? Shocking. And awesome. 

This week's entry is simple. Not a lot of crazy stuff going on. I think it's that end of the year, eyes on the next album at work thingie. I'm going to start working on my title page for my 2013 album this weekend. I have some ideas and who knows, there may be a free download in there somewhere for you! Check back next week!

Here are my pages for Week Fifty-One.



I think my cookie photography has really improved in 2012, no?


A few of you have asked me to show you how to add a line of text to a photo. Here's a very quick video showing you how to do just that.

    Thank You Cathy – My goal next year is to use Photoshop more and get better at it so that I can just whip in there and prepare my photo. Still struggling with Project Life-maybe 2013 will be my year.

    I’m determined to give this a shot, but it will prob. take me a month to fill a page πŸ™‚ Journaling is already getting done; pics of lil ol me are a problem πŸ™‚ I was salivating at your cookie pics on Saturday. Was it a glaze frosting? How did you fine-tune the little bits, like the points of the star in diff. colors? I totally pinned this for a cookie walk next year. . .no more boring cookies from me πŸ™‚

    Jill, I used Royal Icing and pastry bags with No. 3 tips. It just took some practice to get it going. The points of different colors is like this: flood part of the cookie with one color, then fill in the top with another, then do a strip of different colored frosting where they meet, and drag a toothpick through the still wet frosting. It drags the colors with it.

    Thank you thank you for this tutorial….I keep trying to type on my photos and although I get it to work it seems I have been missing a step…so now I will be able to do it without being so frustrated. Thank you for sharing your pages and your talent.

    I may have missed it, but have you blogged about your Project Life workflow? Do you set aside a time each week to journal your cards and put together your pics? Or do you use some of those planning pages I’ve seen floating around and print later?
