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!
Now that we’re in October, the leaves are starting to change, and temperatures are dropping, it’s time to start thinking about the first holiday of the season: Halloween! The Project Life Theme Packs are starting to hit the stores across the country and I was lucky enough to get not only the Halloween Theme Pack, but a Project Life Mini Album as well. I’ve been toying with the idea of creating a mini album for each major holiday to set out as part of our decor and I figured no time was better than the present!
With the combination of the themed cards, a mini album, and my family photos, I was all set to get working. That’s one of the things that I adore about Project Life; while you can totally embellish your sweet little heart out, there’s no need to. It can be as simple or as intense as you’d like!
The Midnight Mini Album is a great base for a Halloween album. I simply tucked in one of the filler cards from the theme kit and I was ready to go!
I decided that I was going to start our album from the first Halloween we celebrated as parents and that I was going to include all the events surrounding the holiday so we have pumpkin carving, Halloween parties, and trick or treating. We haven’t done each of these things each year, but I’m for sure going to include them if we did.
I used some awesome orange glittery Thickers to mark the year and I love the little extra sparkle it adds to the spreads.
Anybody has access to photo editing software with sites like PicMonkey, so don’t be afraid to change your pictures up a little. I made some of my photos black and white to coordinate with the Halloween Themed Pack. I also noticed that I had a lot of my older pictures in a vertical format which might make them tricky to use in the mini albums. To combat this issue, I simply printed a photo at 6″ x 8″ and cut it in the center so it took up two pockets.
One extra fun embellishment I added to my photos from last year were the new Retro Halloween Overlays from Simple As That. They are super adorable and super easy to use! Make sure to head over to Rebecca’s blog to get all of the details.
It’s time to see what YOU have been working on! Go ahead and link up the Project Life posts that you’ve been working on. You might just get featured in a future post here!
