Last weekend for National Scrapbooking Day I was able to get my April pages and one layout completed. That's a lot for me, because inevitably, as quickly as I get started, I falter with the final touches.
For these pages I grabbed a bunch of old and new supplies and got to work. I no longer worry about keeping my photos in chronological order, instead I categorize them by topic. The front is about having Epilase eye surgery, girl time, and cats with a box. I used cards and embellishments from one kit along with a stamped card I made.
The back page focused on what currently had me pumping my fist in the air, listening to my first audio book, and three things that I became obsessed with during the month. I used old and new filler cards and then stamped a couple more.
Since my pages go into an album that has layouts, I've always used the front and back of one single pocket page for each month. It gives me the freedom to have them be completely different if I don't have or want the supplies to match. I've been thinking I might stop creating full size layouts because they haven't been inspiring me as much and so that means I could have each month's pages face each other. Decisions, decisions. ;)
If you do Project Life, do you make the all of your pages for the month or week match or treat each side as it's own project?
