Project Life

Welcome to another week of Project Life Inspiration at Elle’s Studio!  This week I am sharing the week of February 27- March 4 of my Project Life album.

Every week when I start putting together my Project Life layout, I begin to think I little bit about my color scheme.   Really, anything goes in Project Life.  Your layout can be as coordinated (or mixed-match) as you prefer.   However, the scrapbooker in me can’t help but adding a little coordination when putting together my page.

I have found that it can be a bit of a challenge to identify a color scheme when there are so many photos and memorabilia represented in a week.  So what I do first I find a single color that seems to be reoccurring in my photos (or just one color I want to focus on) and highlight it with papers and embellishments.   For this week’s layout, I focused on green.

 Since it was the first week in March, green worked perfectly.   There isn’t a TON of green in my photos– really only in my sons shirt, a bit in the salad photo, and the background of chalkboard in the bottom left photo.  But by using embellishments like the green pennants in the New Bright and Vintage Pennants, I was able to highlight this color.

I also used a bit of red and orange in my color scheme.  Red and orange are hardly represented in my photos at all, only in my memorabilia and embellishments.   I used red tags and washi tape to highlight the Chick-fil-A packaging and the dentist bag.  You will also see touches of orange in a few journaling cards and brads sprinkled throughout the layout.  
I hope this gives you some ideas about adding color to your Project Life.  Thinking of your embellishments, tags, and journaling spots as a key element in pulling together a color scheme will help you worry less on choosing photos “that match” and focus more on the photos that tell your story.

  6. Wow…another great week! I love the longer days and warmer weather it brings!

  14. Lynne says

    Love your pages! Great hints on colors!

  15. Jody says

    I love all the flowers blooming in the spring, even if their pollen bothers my allergies.

  16. Finally being able to open the doors and windows and not freeze! I also love all the little flowers starting pop up!

  17. Spring in Texas normally only lasts a few days here and there. I will say that what I love the most about it is being able to pack up the long-sleeves and bring out the flip flops! Well, the flip flops never go away, I just don’t get crazy looks when I wear them in the Spring.

  18. vegetablog says

    I love the sunshine, the fresh air, the HOPE that comes with spring!! Thank you again for another great week of Project Life inspiration.

  19. Melinda says

    I like to stick with a color scheme too and find that it is challenging since I’m working with more photos! But I try not to stress out on it and just enjoy the process.

    What I love most about spring is seeing and feeling the warm sun and anticipating summer! 😀

  20. connie says

    What I love most about spring is the long days and working in the yard.

  21. I love that it stays light out later…makes me feel like I have more time 🙂

  22. What I ♥ about Spring is all the flowers are in bloom. I take hundreds of pictures b/c I just ♥ nature.

  23. Melanie says

    I love the spring especially when it isn’t raining so we can be outside!

    FLOWERS!! I love the flowers 🙂 Seeing that fresh green sprout and then a bloom … there’s nothing like spring!

  26. anya says

    This is another great week Jenni! I love your ideas about using color. I feel so intimidated trying to match *everything* so pulling out a few ‘focus’ colors is the perfect solution. Your are always such an inspiration!

    I am looking forward to enjoying the longer days ahead, and spending time outside!

  27. blupixy says

  45. spip718 says

    Great inspiration. What I love about spring is the flowers that start to bloom, people seem happier and it’s light out longer.

  46. I should start on project life too! So many things happen & if you don’t scrapbook them they fly away & I will forget what happened that week or day. I love how you added the embellies to highlight the colors not prominent in your layout. Love the great inspiration!

  47. Andrea says

    I love all the pretty colors in spring and the sun shinning!

  51. ziska says

    Of course in South Africa where I am we’re very far away from Spring, but what I love most are the colour of new leaves – and the smell just before the first afternoon thundershowers. It smells electric, full of suspense and anticipation…

  52. Shayne says

    I am also loving try to colour co-ordinate my weeks – it’s challenging, but fun!

    Oh, what do I love about spring? The crisp mornings, the explosion of flowers. the tiny buds on the trees and the sudden explosion of colour in my garden.

  60. Marfa says
