Ned? Ned Reyerson? A salute to Groundhog Day in free downloadable and printable format

Cathy ZielskeFree Downloads, Project Life82 Comments

It was all Dan’s idea. Last week, as I was taking down the last of the holiday decor, including the Christmas subway art in the bathroom, I asked, “So, what should I make for January?” He suggested that Groundhog Day really didn’t get its due in the memory keeping millieu. I agreed. Ergo, I present today’s free package for your … Read More

I know I haven't posted the final few weeks of 2013 and rest assured, they are done and ready for viewing, but you know how the new year starts and you're just ready for, well, the new stuff? Yes, that. I'm going fully digital for Project Life in 2014. No, I'm not going to become a fully digital scrapbooker. Maybe … Read More

December Daily and wrapping up Project Life

Cathy ZielskeProject Life7 Comments

Just a few more days until Christmas and then it’s time to close the book on December Daily for 2013. This is my second year doing the album and I’ve really loved the process. Even though I use a lot of digital techniques, I love the printing and trimming of photos and cards and the few little crafty touches here … Read More

My best tips for digital Project Life™ 2014

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Tutorials110 Comments

Last year, right around Week 17, I did it. I made the switch from a hybrid Project Life approach to a full-fledged digital one. It was kind of an impulse move. I’d been toying with the idea for oh, all of about a day, and thought: Ima just do it. So I did and there has been no looking back. … Read More

Project Life, Weeks 45, 46 and 47

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking50 Comments

OBSERVATIONS: I fell a bit off the weekly pace of late, but no worries! It took very little time to assemble three week’s worth of pages. The best choice I made in this process? Just do a single page for each week. Another choice I made? Well, this isn’t really a choice, but it’s a plan for 2014. Do you … Read More

Project Life, Week Forty Four + my fugue state

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking19 Comments

OBSERVATIONS: A funny thing happened on the way to making this week’s page. I realized that I’d inadvertenly messed up Week’s 42 and 43, somehow mixing up photos and stories to the point that I honestly forgot if they were even my memories at all! (Okay, that’s not really true. But it sounds dramatic, yes?) I hadn’t send the digital … Read More

Project Life, Week Forty-Two + a organization tip for iPhoto users

Cathy ZielskeProject Life48 Comments

OBSERVATIONS: Last week, I played catch-up for three weeks worth of photos and stories, and I did something that made it so much easier to organize my photos and honestly, I can’t believe I wasn’t doing this before and yes, when this run-on sentence is finished and I take a breath, I’m going to tell you this remarkably simple thing … Read More

Project Life Weeks 39, 40 & 41 + a Project Life dilemma

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking86 Comments

I’ve fallen off the Project Life sharing pace for the past few weeks. Truth be told, I have fallen off the actual making of the pages pace as well. My approach has been fairly consistent for the past few years: I pick a day and I make the pages. If it’s a habit it gets done, but as soon as … Read More

Project Life, Week Thirty-Eight. With algebra.

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking9 Comments

OBSERVATIONS: Last week I created a two-page, typical spread for my album. The week before, I'd created a single page. I decided to get back to regularly balanced spreads by creating another single page for this week. This is a perfect opportunity to explain my logic using an algebraic equation, something that's been happening with alarming frequency in the present … Read More

Project Life, Week Thirty-Seven

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking11 Comments

OBSERVATIONS: This week, my Project Life photos came primarily courtesy of Aidan and Cole. Both kids left on school trips, each camping for up to 7 days. Cole headed up to Northern Michigan for the 7th & 8th grade Odyssey trip; Aidan went into Wisconsin on the Namekagon River for the senior canoe trip. And both kids took cameras. Not … Read More
