Last year when I decided to do a fully digital approach to Project Life, I had no idea where I would get my book printed when the year was over. I asked many of you for input and decided to take the plunge with Adoramapix.com. And holy photo book awesomeness, I am so glad that I did. Today I wanted … Read More

Make a Page Monday: The Project Life Wrap-Up

make a page monday | project life wrap up for 2014

I did it. I finished all of my pages for Project Life, Year Twenty-Fourteen. Now what? Okay, I should back up. Next, of course, will be getting a bound book made but as I was exporting all of my PSDs to JPEGs, I realized, “Oh crap! I need to have a cover for this book?” And I’ll be honest. I … Read More

Make a Page Monday: Project Life Catch Up

Instead of making a layout this week, I decided to play catch up again with my Project Life album. I am so looking forward to creating a printed book at the end of the year. One thing that really excites me: it will take up less space than a 12 x 12 album. I am truly out of space for albums … Read More

Make a Page—er, several pages—Monday: A Project Life Catch Up Edition

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking35 Comments

Please forgive me. I made no scrapbook pages to share today for Make a Page Monday. Instead, I made like NINE of ’em! It’s that time again. Project Life catch up time. Lately, I have not been sticking to my usual routine, that routine being to sit down every Monday and just make the page or pages. Life has been … Read More

Catching up with Project Life

Project Life has fallen off my To Do list. It happens. Life gets busy. Work demands to be done. Apparently clean clothes and food are required on some level, too. So the other day, I sat down and decided to knock out six weeks in one shot. One of the things I decided this year is that a single page … Read More

How to catch up on nearly three months of Project Life

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking41 Comments

There’s been a lot going on of late that has taken precedence over my Project Life pages. A first child graduating from high school. A corresponding graduation party. A new website that is getting oh-so close to launching. Plus working to become a more responsible, less neurotic adult female planet member. (That alone makes it surprising I get anything else done, … Read More

Project Life, Weeks Sixteen + Seventeen

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking29 Comments

I’m in  a serious single page Project Life zone right now. There are two reasons: 1) It’s easier, and 2) It’s less hard. I know. Part of me thinks, “Showing my Project Life pages is a little boring.” Why? Because they are so stripped down of late. But I hope that they convey the true simple beauty of this approach … Read More

Project Life, Week Fourteen + Fifteen

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking12 Comments

The last few weeks of Project Life are super stripped down. It’s amazing how much faster it goes when I just focus on getting the photos in and just a tiny bit of writing. Sometimes, that’s all I’m in the mood for. Less fancy. More basic. Like this: Other than a High of the Week journal card and a little … Read More

Project Life, Week Thirteen, the end of the first quarter

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking15 Comments

Yes, I break my Project Life into quarters. Literally. This is what it looks like on my hard drive: I can’t help it. I’ve got a mind for business and a bod for sin. (If you can name that movie, you win special consideration! For what, I don’t know, but you’ll have the PRIDE of knowing that YOU know.) Shall … Read More

Project Life, Week Twelve

Ah, yes… where was I? Oh, right. SCRAPBOOKING. May I present Project Life, Week Twelve: the return to a two-page spread. Simple. Not fussy. White space. You get the idea. This week’s low was decidedly a candidate for teen privacy, ergo, I simply hid the text layer and added the privacy label. (Download the free label files here.) I really … Read More
