2014 Project Life | January Part 2


I finished January Project Life pages this weekend.  I cleaned up my craft room and then promptly covered my whole tabletop again working on my pages.

I planned out my pages in Lightroom before printing out the photos.  I wrote a post with a video about planning Project Life pages in Lightroom last year.  At first when I planned out my pages, I tried to squeeze my January Part 2 photos all onto 2 pages (Design A & Design D).


But that didn’t leave very much room for journal cards & embellishments, so I added a third page (the back of Design D).


That gave my photos a lot more room to breathe.  My final layouts is still slightly different than this, but planning it out gave me ideas of which photos I wanted to print full-size at 4x6 and which ones to print smaller.

To see my pages from the first half of January, click here.

January page 4:  We had lunch with AJ & Meera and the kids at Chipotle; went running at the coast; Noodle antics; dinner with Dejah & Roby at China Max.

Supplies:  One Little BirdPositive Spin” digital kit; washi tape, sequins, date stamp, Sharpies pens, AC Amy Tangerine “Cut & Paste” mini PL kit; WRMK File Tab Punch; Studio L2e “Labels & Tabs” and “Labels & Tabs: Sentiments” stamp sets; Catslife Press cat stamp; Simple Stories Sn@p letter stickers; Elise Cripe “You Are Here” stamp.

Closer looks:




January page 5:  I got braces; I had lunch with Julio at Ortegas; We went to Sat night church; Todd and I put the finishing edges on my DIY Craft Island; Noodle cuteness.

Supplies:  One Little BirdPositive Spin” digital kit and journal cards; washi tape, date stamp; AC Dear Lizzy Neapolitan mini PL kit; arrow paper clip; Evalicious Camera Love Puffy Stickers.

Closer looks:  I made the left side 6x4 journal card digitally using the One Little Bird “Positive Spin” digi kit.  The cassette tape was also from the digital kit.





January page 6:  Chinese New Year lunch at Pearl with work friends.  I only filled up half the page, so I’ll add some photos from February when I work on that this weekend.  It doesn’t bother me at all that January photos end mid-page.



I diversified this time and used a Design D page protector, not just Design A!  :) 

Other Project Life Supplies That I Always Use:


  1. i love the peek into your process, Christine!!

  2. This makes me want to start PL! I love your approach. You have great handwriting, by the way!

  3. I must have missed the 'planning pages on Lightroom' the first time around. That is such a great tip. THANKS!!!!! BTW You should just hand journal your penmanship is beautiful.

  4. Gorgeous pages! I am doing my pages monthly this year as well, but I'm really having a hard time with the format and am creating inserts to divide the months so I feel like I have to end at the end of a page...which is much harder than it seems!!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
