project life 2013 | title page {blog hop!}

Hi and welcome to our January
Project Life Blog Hop for our Project Life Connection Group “Project Everyday Blessings”
We are sharing with you each month where we are with our Project Life System, Albums & Techniques.
It's our hope that we will inspire you to capture memories and record them.
If you missed the full line up here it is:

If you came from Crafting for Them, you are on the right track!
Here is my the title page for my 2013:
01 title page

For my title page I always like to use part of a Becky Higgins' core kit (Seafoam this year!) as well as photos. 

01 title page a
The top left pocket is a freebie from Cathy Z. that I recolored in Photoshop. Our initial card is from her as well. I love her clean and simple style and my goal this year is to keep the lumpy embellishments to a minimum so I can add more inserts without fear of having to go to 3 albums.

01 title page b
I do like to add thickers from my stash (trying to use it up as well, but this becomes more difficult with all the cute new PL products coming out!) for a tiny bit of dimension. This card is simply one of the Seafoam journaling cards.

01 title page c
The photos I included of the hubs and me were actually from last year (December at least!). And to tell you a not-so-secret, I loved this self-portrait of the two of us from NYE so much that I used it at the end of my 2012 album as well. If (when) I do a second album for 2013 I will use current photos for the new title page.

And a little about my process:
So I am not a very organized scrapper. In fact, here is our dining room table right now:

02 mess a
Unfortunately I do not have a dedicated scrap space since we live in a small-ish highrise apartment. Fortunately the hubs doesn't mind the mess he finds at least once a week.

02 mess b
One of my goals this year is to make sure I use my kit as well as finish up my Turquoise kit from last year. {P.S. I have tons of extras to give away if anyone is interested - just leave a comment!} I have actually taken out 2 of each card to use up before I start repeating.

02 mess c
Taking photos everyday is almost second nature now, especially with iPhone technology. You always have your phone on you so you can always snap a pic of something. Anything! And that's really my method of memory keeping - photos first. I do plan to use the dSLR more this year - nothing beats the quality!

I can't wait to be inspired by everyone on the hop. Tried to keep it short and sweet this time around. If you want to see more of my layouts try here (2013) and here (2012).

Please hop to Loving Life’s Little Blessings and you can find more Project Life fun at Project Everyday Blessing.

Love your layouts! I was just commenting on Tifani's blog about not using my DSLR enough because the iPhone is just so darn convenient! LOL!!
