You may recall, if you took this class (which was based on a Project Life type of page) at the ATDML Autumn retreat
I said I loved the idea of doing Project Life but didn't think I had
enough going on in my life to do a whole book. I also said that I was
thinking of doing a double page each month - without using the pocket
pages, as that would be the ideal solution for me. I had spoken to the
lovely Denise about making a 1 photo page and a multi-photo page as a pair each month. So when I saw that Jo had
decided to choose her five favourite photos from each month and to
print and scrap them I had the ideal opportunity to put my plan into
are my January ones. Of course I have used my Silhouette to cut out
some elements for the page and have used the very gorgeous Kaisercraft Rustic Harmony Collection.
Photo 1 taken by Gracia using her Selfie Stick (the best Christmas present ever)
Photo 2 a selfie taken on the 1st of January as prompted by Ann here
3 a quick family shot - again using that very useful selfie stick, just
before we took Gracia to the station to return to Newcastle after
4 - this one makes my little heart sing as now that Eileen has moved to
Scotland we don't get very many opportunities to scrap together but she
came over to play whilst she was staying with family over Christmas/New
5 - Gracia and Josh. Josh stayed with Gracia for a week in January
prior to his 3 month adventure (at the moment he is in Vietnam having
been to Thailand and Cambodia).
the front page of my album I decided that I would keep it simple and
just have a smaller photo from the 1 photo page each month. I am really
pleased with this page as I used my Silhouette with a black Silhouette
pen to draw the squares for the photos, the two cameras (I know the one
on the right is the one on the left flipped so the controls are in the
wrong place) and to outline the title, which again was another first for
me - cutting glitter paper!
There we have it - a good start and thank you Jo for the idea.
