Project Life, Week Fourteen

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking11 Comments


OBSERVATIONS: Another week that relied heavily on the iPhone photo. When Monday rolled a round, I seriously doubted I had taken enough photos to fill even a single page for the week. Then I realized, "Oh, you… always so dramatic!" and found plenty of shots to choose from for the spread.

Because we are in a new quarter of the year, I decided to swap out the paper I'm using for my Week in Review card. Still going with stripes, but now in gray for the next 12 weeks.

Onto this week's pages.



All but two photos came from my phone. I debated blurring out the Sullen Teen, but maybe he'll be okay with this. Or not.



No, that's not my cat. But he's sure cute, isn't he?


Doesn't the gray look nice? Maybe a little more subdued than my album is used to, but I think it'll grow on us.

Clean & Simple: The Workshop is still open for registration through April 17. Remember, once you sign up for any Big Picture class, you have permanent access to the classroom and materials. So, if you're not sure you can keep up, you can work through the material at your own pace. We are just launching into Week 2 today with another in-depth digital/hybrid page project. Another cool thing is that my students get to watch a new documentary by Yale film student Tory Jeffay called "Scrapbookers." It's generated quite the discussion so far.  I'm hosting a private viewing of this hour-long movie and yes, I happen to be in the movie, as does Stacy Julian as well as the founder of Creative Memories. Plus, there's a villain. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

    Hi Cathy,
    I am liking the grey very much. I also wanted to mention that I had a lot of foot pain myself (plantar fasciitis) and the only thing that helped me was to get custom orthotic insoles that my doctor sized. I also did a lot of calf and toe stretches. I hope you feel better.

    Cathy, my week in review cards from weeks 1-13 have been the mustard colour (same as used in the title page cards) and my next 3 months will be grey (again, same colour used in title page cards). I’ll go back to the mustard colour and then back to grey to end the year. It ties everything nicely together. Remember, REPETITION is a good thing!

    My husband and I came across a GREAT deal on a new digital DSLR camera and he OFFERED and was willing to put up the cash, but (after carting the box around the store first) I finally told him that there was NO way I would pull that out instead of using my iPhone. A few years ago, I was dying for a fancy DSLR and now, I turned it away. What is going on with the world? I spent a whole $.99 on a new iPhone camera app instead that I have been wanting. (Oh, and don’t think my husband is “super lucky” or anything – we just bought a house, so the $$$ I will want to spend – in addition to PL products when they hit my local store – will more than make up for that DSLR camera!!).

    Inspiring, as usual — you always give me great ideas for photos depicting real life. Think I’m gonna go shoot my 20-year-old’s 2-foot pile of laundry on the floor…yep, real life! Good luck with your foot 🙁

    As a student in your Clean & Simple class, I can assure you it is going very well, as all your classes do. I’ve been so impressed by the quality of assignments posted in the gallery. You are a master teacher, and it probably isn’t the best time to bring this up. BUT. Would you ever consider teaching a photography class? I’m having a hard time learning to use my new SLR camera. I just know that if you taught the subject, it would all make sense.

    I’ve been using your grey stripe quite a bit on my digital PL – I love it! Your little patterns are perfect. I think I need a red one. I’m off to DD to shop your store:)
