My Project Life Planner

So I made my own planning-sheet a while back were i could note information for the week and select a layout and photos. For 2015 it bound it together with some string so i could keep my active weeks together with my empty weeks. When I do my planning I also have my reference-sheet with Becky Higgings pocket pages (I only use Beckys for a uniform feeling in my albums) and sometimes a calendar so I can see which dates that goes in which week.

So now I have been thinking about making it a bit more sturdy and nicer. I borrowed a bind-it-all from a friend and yesterday I finally got the time to do it.

I made a very simple cover from laminated cardstock and a patterned paper (the back is identical without the text). The covers are about 0,5cm taller then all the other pages. The front is decorated with Bo Bunny’s Peacock Lane that is cut with nestabilities.
2016-01-25 Pl planerare 1The next full page spread after the cover is the pocket pages reference. On this one I will make some kind of a sticker (green, yellow and red perhaps) so I can know how many of the designs I have at home. I just hate to start a planned week and realizing that I don’t have the pocket-page I need. The reference is also laminated so it can be well-handled.

kOn the back on the reference I stuck to calendars of 201 and 2016.

2016-01-25 Pl planerare 2After the reference/calendar I added my old pages for 2015. They look a bit scruffy due to all the holes but they will soon be torn out (hopefully) anyway. And I don’t have a working printer home so I didn’t wanna redo them. The old pages are double-sided so they wouldn’t take up so much space.

2016-01-25 Pl planerare 5After my old pages I put in the new pages for 2016. I made a small change (made a divided note-space for my (now) two kids. These pages are unfortunate not double-sided (didn’t get a printer that could do that).

jbhjkhThe book is put together with a 1/2″ red wire from Zutter. It’s full but you can still turn the pages with ease, and it will be thinner and thinner for every week I put into my album…

material

  • Zutter – Bind-it-all, 1/2″ red wire
  • Spellbinders-nestabilities – labels 8
  • My favorite things – By the numbers

Week 21-24

So here comes my week 21-24.

vecka 21On week 21 i used Becky Higgins Midnight and only used Simon says stamps mini hearts for decoration. I just love the clean look of midnight.

 

vecka 23On Week 23 i used Simple Stories Baby boy kit and some label stickers from simple stories.

 

vecka 24

On week 24 i used Becky Higgins journal themed cards. They really are one of my absolute favorites, I love the vibrant color and simplicity. I have used some Me and my big ideas transparent stickers as decoration.

Week 11-18

Here comes some of the spreads for week 11 to 18 2014.

IMG_9227IMG_9228Week 11: On this spread I used the Journal themed cards from Becky Higgins and I did use some Jillibean Soup alphabetstickes for my titelcard. This week I tried something new and added some text to my photos before I developed them. I like how it turned out and that I could get quite a lot of text on the 3×4 without writing all over it. I have marked which week it is on my monthly card with a small clearstamp dot and a couple of different memento dew drops.

 

IMG_9231 IMG_9232Week 12: On this spread I used some yellow cards from Midnight and I mostly decorated with these circle letters from Fancy Pants paper True Friend. I also used some enamel from doodlebug, I love all enamel dots and have quite a few but I never use them because I never know how to but I think I was successful this time.

 

IMG_9238 IMG_9236Week 13: Here I’m using Kiwi from Becky Higgins and a sticker from Me and My Big Ideas called Baby Girl.

 

IMG_9239 IMG_9241Week 17: I’m using Cherry from Becky higgins and decorated with some banners made with Stampin Up’s Banner punch, the stampset Banner Blast and some memento dew drops. The Love banner at the right side middle is from one of the studio Callico-kits.

 

IMG_9246 IMG_9244 IMG_9247 IMG_9250Week 18 is a double spread due to a weekend trip we made to our friends summerplace. I have used the Becky Higgins Slate and the decorations are stickers from the Simple stories DIY Labels. The letters are as usual Jillibean:)

Some spreads from 2013

Here comes some of  my spreads from 2013, i did these spreads by events and not weeks.

 

IMG_8402 This is the premiere of our barbecue, I used the slate core kit and some Lawn Fawn dies for my titelcard.

 

IMG_8403 IMG_8407This is from our 3D-ultrasonic of our babygirl. On the first Ultrasonic I used the red cards from Becky Higgins Honey so I did the same here so it would be cohesive. The images was printed at the clinic so I did use the originals (I do of course have a digital copy as well). The prints were were thin and flimsy so i adhered them to some black cardstock and then cut them with my Becky Higgins die.

 

IMG_8408This spread if from a weekend-trip to Germany, the spread is very simple but I really like the map (from google I think) that shows the hotel’s location.

 

IMG_8410This one is from my daughters birth and I have included all the thing we got at the hospital. I have to admitt that I was a bit tiered when doing these weeks so there isn’t any decorations at all, and I’m not that decorate much to begin with. But I have plans to get back and ad some colors and maybe some decorations later on, especially to the bracelet-pockets which looks a bite bare right now. But it still makes me all warm and fuzzy looking the the bracelets and the little welcome that they left at the breakfast-tray (she is born at 8 in the morning).

 

IMG_8425 IMG_8423As a first-time mother I have of course taken far to many photos of my trolls funny faces (and sleeping-habits) but sometimes they just end up as a really fun sequence and then I wanna get all photos in the spread.

 

IMG_8420 IMG_8421When Freja was born she got three big packages in the mail with clothing and letters from my grandparents. The letter were so sweet and just like my grandparents in all ways to I saved them and just put them in some bigger pages. There were three letters so I did put in one 4×6 card were I wrote were and when the pages came and whar was happening in our life at that time.

 

So this was the last ones from 2013, hope you enjoyed it a bit.

Week 1 of 2014

2014-07-17So I have now done my first weekly spread for Project Life. Fortunately for me it was a week when not much was going one so I just choose some photos I liked and could journal generally about what was going on at that time.

I have used the Becky Higgins core kit Turquoise, a free calender that I cut up and some Jillibean Soup stickers alphabet. I decorated by using a flag-punch from Stampin’ Up and I don’t know the name (I borrowed it from a friend). The flags is colored with Rhubarb Stalk Memento Ink and then i just drew a heart with a white pen. The hearts I used for decorations is Simon says Stamp’s Mini heart set, in white and Rhubarb Stalk. The arrows are stamps from MFT’s Right This Way

Online class making papers and jorunaling-cards

For the last couple pf days I have been taking a free online class from Anika that teaches you how to make your own papers, tags, color-palettes and journaling cards in Photoshop. Its just wonderful and here comes a sneak-peak of my first try:) If you also wanna sign up, follow this link.

 

This is the color-palette I used as a base.

Project Life

Efter ha gått med i facebook gruppen för svenska project-lifare blev jag alldeles inspirerad av alla andras sidor och tänkte isa upp vad jag knåpat med det senaste halvåret.

Min tanke från början var att inte på något sätt göra veckovis eller månadsvis utan mer se mina album som vanliga fotoalbum med lite mer utrymme för pyssel och skrivande. Men efter ha gjort halva 2013 på det här sättet har jag fått inse att jag har för många bilder, och speciellt efter det att Freja föddes. Så 2014-albumet kommer att vara veckovis, ett uppslag på 2 sidor för varje vecka. Och med ytterligare uppslag då det här hänt något stort, exempelvis som namngivningsceremonin.

Jag dekorerar inte mina bilder eller inserts särskilt mycket utan fokuserar mer på att få in bilderna. Jag hade velat datorskriva min journaling men det tar för mycket tid just nu så det kanske blir så i framtiden när jag inte känner behovet att bara få in 2013 på rätt ställe. Jag har främst använt färdiga Kit (i 2013 är det i stort sett bara Honey) men vissa uppslag har jag gjort med papper jag har hemma eller freebies.

Så här kommer några av sidorna från 2013. Jag har hittills kommit till augusti och snart kommer Frejabilderna och jag längtar efter att få leka med dem!

2014-05-14, 8Första sidan valde jag att ha utan foton eftersom att det händer så mycket under året och att jag inte vet vart fokus kommer ligga. Så klart är Frejas födelse en enorm händelse men jag vill inte bara fokusera på det.

2014-05-14, 12014-05-14, 12De flesta datum och titlar är handskriva eller gjorda med utstansade bokstäver.

2014-05-14, 92014-05-14, 11 Ibland när jag inte har någon faktisk memorbilia fast jag hade velat kan jag skapa lite själv. Jag hade inget visitkort eller något från det här fiket så jag gick in på hemsidan och tog deras logga. Sedan gjorde jag en svart kort och skrev in adressen, infogade loggan och fick ett fint kort som kunde använda.

2014-05-14, 6På större händelser får hinner jag oftast skriva in mina kommentarer på de flesta sidorna och då kan jag ha några sidor enbart med foton, så länge det inte är något specifikt foto jag vill berätta något om.

2014-05-14, 52014-05-14, 7Här har jag även gjort ett kort av ett screenshoot av det sms vi skickade till våra närmaste vänner när vi fick veta att jag var gravid.
När det gäller mina graviditetsbilder önskar jag att jag hade ett “+” att stansa ut eller en stämpel. Har någon tips är det mer än välkommet!

2014-05-14, 2Någonstans i Juli fick jag inse att jag inte kunde skriva ut alla mina foton själv eftersom att det blev för dyrt. Jag hade svårt att hitta någon som kunde skriva ut foton i mindre format. Till slut hittade jag Crimson men då blir det en vit ram runt fotona som jag inte gillar. Jag kommer få stå ut med det fram till 2014 bilderna, men men. Nu har jag som tur är hittat photoscape tack vare Project Life Sweden och det här inlägget. Så nu har jag sammanfogat mina foton och skickat första 2014-omgången för framkallning.

2014-05-14, 4 Förutom de ultraljudsbilder vi fick har jag tagit screenshots från de videor som Björn tog vid tillfället. Eftersom att Ultraljudsbilderna var mindre ön 10×15 så har jag monterat dem på svarta cardstocks som jag klippt ut, det ger dem stadga och samma format som resten. Jag valde svart och enfärgat för att ha fokus på just de här bilderna, dom är för värdefulla för mig för att få slåss med mönster.

Hoppas att ni tyckte om en titt!

Long time, No see

Wow- It have really been long sense i posted something so here is an update.

First of all we have now moved into our new apartment and we are fully settled in the only thing is that we miss some lamps here and there. My new craftingspace is done and I now share an officespace with Bjorn. The craftingspace is just super but I have had no inspiration or will do craft any at all unfortunate.

I’m now i week 30 and everything is well, both mentally and physically, and the big day just comes closer and closer. Almost all thoughts in my head right now is about kids and that might be why my crafting is on a low. I have been thinking a lot on memorykeeping in the form of my photoalbums and I have bought a Project life album, some inserts and a core-kit. My first thought was to start and album for out little one but then I decided to start getting all my old photos in order. Right now they are in a few album , in total caos.

So for the last couple of weeks I have been ripping out all my photos and trying to sort them some what. I used an box which I made dividers for so when I stumble over photos from different times in my life I can put them in somewhat order.The biggest folder is right now is all my photos from when I lived in Uppsala with is like 10 years so I will sort through that again and hopefully get then in the right year. I’m still not done with getting all my photos off all the old albums and boxes but it’s nearly there.
2013-09-17, 1

Even if I’m not done sorting the Photos I wanted to actually put something in my album so I decided to take my photos from my family’s trip to Crete and get them into the album. They are not to many and I wanted them at the same place so Yesterday I spent all night with just making the titelcard. I was a bit fun but I still didn’t wanna be in my craftingspace so I have mobilized myself into the living-room instead. I’m using the Jade core-kit for this part and I’m planning to use the very cheerful Honey for our baby when she comes. The plan is that I tonight will get at least one photo in but we will see sense i ended up here…

2013-09-17, 32013-09-17, 2The living-room is the room that is still missing a ceiling-lamp so you will have to excuse the very yellow photos.

 

I think that was all for today but I hope I will be back very soon for another update of some kind:)
