Happy Project Life Saturday! I am so thrilled you’re here and I can’t wait to share more with you. If you’d like to catch up on my previous Project Life for Beginners posts, you can go HERE. If you’re looking for Project Life freebies or inspiration, go HERE.
Who’s ready for another week of the Saturday Share? In case this is your first time visiting, each Saturday myself and six other blogs team up to share Project Life tips, tricks, and inspiration. I’m loving getting a chance to take a peek at what y’all have been working on in your Project Life albums each week. I’ve already found SO much inspiration in these first few weeks!
In case you didn’t know, we’ve started a special Pinterest board just for the awesome spreads and ideas we’re finding in our weekly linky. You can find it and follow it HERE!
Let’s dig right in to the spreads I have to share this week!
The layouts I’m sharing are from a recent trip my family took to a gorgeous area for ASU Sun Devil Training Camp. We’re avid Sun Devil fans, so that alone was awesome, but the chance to get out of the Phoenix summer heat was a huge added bonus. I won’t bore you with all of the minute details, but I am going to share a few new-to-me ideas I had this week that I thought you might enjoy.
1. Use a series of images in your layouts.
When my son began jumping from rock to rock in the stream behind the cabin we were staying in, I knew he was bound to slip in at some point. While keeping a good eye on him, I managed to also keep my camera ready for that moment when the inevitable happened. I am so happy that I was able to catch his stunned look because he loves talking all about those pictures now to anyone he can show them to.
Try to get a series of pictures and add them to your spreads. Use some kind of numbering system if need be (I used some Thickers I had on hand) to help tell the story. Those pictures tell more than I ever could with words.
2. Don’t be afraid to go big!
I loved this title card, but I didn’t necessarily love the size of the tiny line that was given to me to write on. Project Life doesn’t have rules, so don’t be afraid to step outside of the box and try something new. I adore how the title on this page turned out and it would not have nearly as much impact if I had just stayed on the small line.
3. Create extra space.
You may be thinking I’m crazy (The Husband usually does), but I promise I’m not. Sometimes you just don’t have enough space for all of the pictures and journaling you want to include on a particular layout. That was exactly the case for me on this one. To solve my issue, I journaled on a 3×4 lined card, added a tag with adhesive to it, and slipped it behind the picture that I was writing about.
Now, my journaling is there for the long haul, but I didn’t have to give up an awesome picture to keep it there. Win-win.
It’s time now to show off what you’ve been working on this week! Please make sure that your posts are Project Life related and try to share some love on some other posts. Everyone loves getting some positive feedback!
