2015 Project Life - Title Page
I decided to go back to a physical album for 2015. I will be doing a more monthly approach, but I haven't really figured out the structure. (As in, how many pages per month). I will do a clear "month" title card and a "best moment" photo each month, but other than that, I'm going to let the album take me where it wants to.
Here's a look at my title page for this year:
My title page was inspired by a recent digital page I made:
This page was made using Amber LaBau's add-ons (papers and elements) from the January Memory Pockets Monthly over at The Lilypad. I absolutely loved the color scheme, but I wanted to change it up a little with my album. I ended up mixing Amber's add-ons and the January Folio kit. I subscribe to this kit, which you can do here. You'll get a big discount on the kits, discounts and early access to the add-ons, a private forum and more.
Back to my cover page and how I used the digital cards and elements. I used Becky Higgins' Design A page protector. (Which usually makes up the majority of my albums - it's a classic design and it's much easier to stick with one than to mix and match every week). Three of the cards I printed directly from the kit (I adore that 2015 calendar card), and two I did a little digital work before printing.
For this card, I cropped one of the papers from Amber's add-on, and added one of her element stamps (re-colored to white), and flattened it. I printed it on some basic white card stock, and then I added alpha stickers from October Afternoon's Daily Flash collection to spell out our last name.
For the 2015 card, I took one of the cards included in the kit. The upper left hand corner had some text in it, so to remove it, I simply made a selection from the white area of the card, copied and pasted it over the text, and flattened it. Then I dragged in the '2015' element from Amber's add-on and aligned it where I wanted it. Flattened, and printed. Once printed I added alpha stickers from Authentique.
For this card, I printed it as it came in the kit, and then used a super thin glue dot to adhere a Studio Calico wood 'life is good' embellishment from the Sundrifter collection.
That's all I did to my cover page besides adding my photos. Simple and a nice clean way to start off the new year. This was fun. I really enjoyed working with the pockets and papers and embellishments again, but still keeping some of my love for digital products alive by doing this hybrid.
Project Life is an amazing and simple scrapbooking system designed by Becky Higgins. While I often use products created by other designers, I attribute my love of pocket style scrapbooking to Becky and Project Life, which is why I always refer to my pocket pages as Project Life. For more information, please check out Becky's website. If you're new to the blog and you'd like to scroll back through my past few years doing Project Life, you can find all of my Project Life related posts here. In 2014 I used the digital Project Life format, which you can find products for here. Or you can design a page using the brand new Project Life iOS app.
