My first contributions to Paislee Press for 2015! You can see other inspired projects on the PP blog. Above is a Project Life 6x8 spread to kick off February. I used one of my favorite templates from PP as well as the Make Time card from the Let's Go set of journal cards.
Here's a little peek of the Portland 2015 album currently in progress...
This is the front page. It's a cropped photo from a large scale poster of the St John's bridge that is hanging in Schoolhouse Electric. I loved the old feel and thought it would make a great welcoming page to the travel album. I added in Paislee Press's Destination wording from the Pictures + Words set #18. Man, I love that set.
Sidenote//If you're in Portland, I highly suggest a visit to this beautifully curated shop. Kelly Purkey did a nice little review here.
I'm using Studio Calico's gold 9x12 album and I LOVE IT. I wasn't sure at first upon opening my box but after putting a few spreads together, I'm totally smitten and I'm thinking of doing something crazy like restarting my 2015 Project Life using this larger format. Ugh, I know….that's absurd, especially since I've got almost all of January done. But here's the problem. I will probably fill up my 6x8 album after February. It's already that full. At this rate, I'll most likely have 5-6 albums. So either I cut back or go bigger. I'm leaning towards the latter but we'll see. A decision needs to be made soon!
Here's a completed spread of a series of #fromwhereistand images. Great subject to shoot when traveling. I also have another series I'm working on which are photos of signs from each shop we visited.
The large sheet of newsprint with the quotation marks was pulled out of a free magazine I picked up while shopping in Hand Eye Supply. It's really large and there are some really cool images in it that I plan to use throughout the album.
Sidenote//always be on the look out for free items when walking through shops, hotels and restaurants. There's always free literature, postcards, stickers and business cards and sometimes things like buttons and printed pencils. Never be afraid or embarrassed to walk out with a handful of free things to add to your album.
Yeah for scrapbooking progress!
