Project Life

Welcome to another week of Project Life here at Elle’s Studio!   For this week’s project life I am sharing the week of January 30th- February 5th.

As you can tell by the dates I have gotten slightly behind in my Project Life album.  We had multiple rounds of colds and ear infections in our family the last few weeks (myself included!).  I reminded myself this week that there is no “time table” when it comes to Project Life.  I see so many people post on message boards that they have fallen behind and feel very discouraged.  My hope today is to share with you that life happens and some days you can not get it all done, and that’s okay.  “Being caught up” is really a subjective term.  Don’t let what other people are doing, or where they are at in their Project Life album discourage you and your progress.  There are no rules here.

This was a fun week to document because it was Super Bowl week.  I live in Indianapolis (which was the host city for the Super Bowl), so life here was very exciting and electric.  You can see on my title page how I even called it “Super Week”.

In addition to many of Elle’s Studio Handmade Layers and Collected items, I used Lily Bee Design’s Buttercup line, and Dear Lizzy’s Neapolitan line.  Both of these collections look great with Elle’s Studio tags!  I included an 8.5 x 11 layout I made for Lily Bee in this week’s project life.  I’ve never included a layout before, but I love how the smaller sized layout works with a Project Life spread.

In addition to the layout, I also included one of my son’s school papers, prescription stubs, ticket stubs, chopstick packaging, and the front page of the Indianapolis Star on Super Bowl Sunday.

In case you didn’t see, we added Dear Lizzy’s new roller stamp to our shop this week!  I had the chance to  play with it and LOVED how perfectly it works with our tags!!   It’s a great stamp for Project Life.

One of my favorite Elle’s Studio items that I use EVERY week in my Project Life are the Daily 3×4 Tags (seen here as the “On This Day” tag).  The pack contains a tag for every day of the week plus three bonus tags.  It never fails, I always include one of these for a photo or journaling in each week’s Project Life!

We have a few winners to share with you today!

    I love all the PL inspiration on Tuesdays! I am behind a bit too but not discouraged as I have a plan to get caught up this week, while working on week 8. Love the layers in your pockets. Thanks for the inspiration Jenni!

  4. I just learned of your site/shop from a fellow swapper at MAS and I must say, “where have you been all of my life?!” Your products and ideas are so up my alley and I am thrilled to be placing my first order sometime this week.

  5. I’ve gotten a little behind too, but I’m not gonna sweat it!

    We all get ‘behind’ sometimes…what’s important is that you are capturing your life stories as much as possible. 🙂 I’m behind on my son’s baby book…thanks for the reminder that it is okay and it will get done.

  10. Lynne says

    Love to see your PL pages. I, too, am starting to feel like I am not as ‘on top’ of my PL as I was when I first started, so its always good to hear some reminders that I am the only one to set the time-table for the project. I love all the extra goodies you add to your pages! Thanks for the awesome inspiration.

  33. Jen says

    Thanks so much for the encouragement on PL. I haven’t even started my album yet, waiting on my page protectors to get here this week. I have been trying to take pics & notes. I have some “missing pieces”, but I am gonna just go with the flow & do what I can. Thanks again for the inspiration.

  39. lcdzines says

    Hi Jenni….love your Project Life pages!! I live near Indianapolis (Anderson) so I know what you mean about the excitement of the Superbowl being in Indy! Unfortunately, I didn’t get to go see everything but my husband did and he got some good pictures 🙂 Anyway, love what you do with the Elle’s Studio products in Project life. I am doing PL, but with my own spin on it.

  40. Love this spread – and all the paperclips:)

  41. Jennifer says

    Love your PL even more now that I’m participating. 🙂

  42. AmyBug says

    Fun ideas. I like all the mementos and the little house in the doily. 🙂

    Love the one of a kind tag. I’m behind too, but am quickly finding ways to journal in the moment and get it in my album later.

  44. Jessica says

    Love Jenni’s layouts & Elle’s studio. Thanks for sharing

  45. Jeani says

  46. KellyG says

    Love your project! Love how you inpcorporated the newspaper articles! Great stuff!

  47. Shirley says

    I like all the handwritten journaling. It’s easy to think now that it’s not that important, but I think it’s great in retrospect.
