Project Life - January

So let's talk Project Life!  Warning...this is a long post and photo heavy! 

Last year I posted my title page for 2011 but never got a chance to post any of my pages.  Like I said before, life just got in the way of my hobbies! :)  If you read my original post you will see my process and how I use Project Life to capture our story.  This year I've decided to post those 2011 pages each month respectively, and then after completing my 2012 pages for that same month I will post them as well.  Hope that makes sense. :)

So here are my pages for January 2011:

 Title page (see original post here)

First page starts with New Year's Eve.  Photo sleeve on right side is from We R Memory Keepers.  

I used two different Ali Edwards journals on these pages along with some stamping. 

Definitely need more practice taking photos of my pages in the photo sleeves!  :)  Not sure why these are so blurry...

I placed a picture of the cards that I made during the month for special occasions in a 6x6 page protector. 

Back side of the previous birthday card.

Bottom left - I used two journal cards in this 4x6 slot and added a photo to go along with the story of that day.

 Two page spread on celebrating a few January birthdays along with another birthday card. 

Used an overlay from Ali Edwards for the top left photo.  I love her overlays! :)

Included the 8x10 photo from my son's team photo shoot. 

One of the reasons why I love Project Life...I am able to incorporate full layouts in my album.  Here is an 8x8 layout of me cooking with the girls! :)

WOW...that was a lot!  Thanks for stopping by.  :)


  1. Wow Arlene what an incredible undertaking this is. All of it is fabulous! I take my hat off to you because I know the commitment is huge.

  2. Love how you are doing your Project life.
    I just completed my Project 365. I stopped working on it in April! But that last week I have caught up. I worked non stop, lol.

  3. i don't do these large projects--too much pressure to get them done fast:) i think you hit on a great idea-showing last years this year, arlene! and now you can work on this years pages at your own pace--clever!

    oh, beautiful family--everyone has such gorgeous smiles:)

  4. Arlene, what a labour of love!! These pages are treasures! I love the way you combined so many photos with lots of journaling too. This album will be cherished for years and years to come!

  5. Arlene, I love how clean your pages look! Also love all your insert pages! I'm trying Project Life out for the first time this year and am trying to get into the groove of things right now :)

  6. Your pages are fab so far!!! Great inspiration... I have started PL this year too!

  7. I like that you are using different size page protectors when needed. It gives added interest to your album.

  8. Great pages on your PL Arlene and thank your very much for your sweet comment on my PL-pages. I Appreciate it vey much. You have a lovely family and can't wait seeing your PL with the simple stories papers.

  9. Love all your page layouts and the clean fresh look to them. How wonderful that you have this to save.

  10. Wow, Arlene, this is so awesome!! What an amazing keepsake!! I wish I had the determination to do something like this!! Thanks for sharing this with us :)

  12. I'm loving your PL for 2011, I can't wait to see more :) I like your typed journaling, I really love the Ali Edwards overlays, but I don't have photoshop and don't know of another way to use them :( Therefore for now I go with handwritten journaling until I figure out another way or until I purchase PS Elements!
    Thanks for visiting my blog :)

  13. Wow, great pages!! This is the first year i'm doing PL and so far I'm struggling. I think because I'm trying to use things from my stash instead of buying a kit and it's a lot more work... I may break down and get a kit so I don't give up completely!

  14. Wonderful pages, Arlene! It looks like you're off to a great start with your PL! Thanks for sharing!
