Week 2 - Project Life Art/ & Project 365

I did a few 4 x 6 cards for my Project Life Art/Journal this week. Some were done digitally and some were done with paper. I will note above each photo which is which.

This one was done digitally.

This was done using paint chips and punches. It's a dream/wish to take the kids to Disney World one day.

Another paper one. This was done using some new rubber stamps I got at Michaels this past week on clearance and some old scrapping supplies I had bought years ago. It's fun finally doing some paper stuff again.

I am continuing on my project 365 (4th year). I'm going to do it again digitally but I am going to do it more simple like in the project life format. Hopefully adding more journaling. Here is my first 2 weeks.

2012 - Project Life - Art/Journal

My goal was to add the concept of Project Life in 2012 but wanted to use my own supplies to do so. It took me a few days to figure out how I was going to do that. I am all digital now. Been that way for about 7 years now. I occasionally do pull out my scrapping supplies to do cards but lately the urge to do more hands on scrapping has been there. However, I did not want to go to 12 x 12 in size. I went to Michaels to get albums for us to start our project. I was hoping to get like an 8 x 11 book but there were no three ring ones available. They had the 12 x 12 but didn't want to go that size nor did I want to pay a high price for each album as I needed 4. I finally found these smaller albums that were $9.99 each but after coupons I was able to get it for like $6.40 each. The pages fit 2 4 x 6 in size. Got one for each of my children so they can play as well.

I may or may not put photos in mine. I'm hoping to use maybe digital products as well as paper products in mine and maybe do like one 4 x 6 journaling card a week. Here is my title page for my album.

We decided to alter our covers a little bit. The light purple is my album. The butterfly purple album is my daughters, the blue album is my sons and the pink album is my other daughters.

Here I am with my completed cover.
