Time to share my March 2019 Project Life pages! I recently picked up the Project Life ‘Stories’ value kit when it was on sale at Spotlight, and incorporated some of those journal cards in this month’s pages.
As with last month, my title page includes a couple of favourite photos of my niece and nephew, and my ‘Here and now’ list. I used a lot of red and blue in my title page and a few of my other March pages – they’re colours I don’t use very often (mostly because I don’t have a lot of red or blue journal cards in my stash!), but I really liked incorporating them into my spreads this month!
We spent the first half of March on a family cruise around New Zealand. I’m going to make a whole separate album to tell all of those holiday stories, but I wanted to include a little bit about the cruise in my Project Life pages, so I just picked out one photo from each day of the holiday and added journal cards to list out the dates and where we were. It makes a nice little ‘snapshot’ of the trip!
For this page, I cut down some 4×6 papers and used washi tape to make journal cards. The ‘eating my feelings’ sentiment was a 3×4 card that I cut down and adhered to another card with a washi tape border – an easy technique to use when you like just one element from a journal card!
This page was all about Dannii’s Masters graduation! I included some ephemera to help tell this story – the physical invitation to the ceremony in the 4×6 pocket, the tag from the graduation gift I got for Dannii, and I even included the program from the ceremony itself as an insert (not pictured). I love including these bits and pieces as well as photos – they’re like reminders that all of these events and moments happened in ‘real life’, with little details and memories aren’t captured by pictures.
The last page for March were all about our catch-ups with friends. The 4×6 bicycle card has a bit of a funny story – we had a couple of friends over, and were telling them about an exhibit at the Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart where the artist had asked hundreds of people to draw a bicycle from memory. Our friend Thomas asked for some paper to give it a go himself, so I handed him a blank 4×6 journal card! Incorporating that card into this page was a great way to tell the story of that dinner with our friends, but it also just looks really cool – Thomas is a talented guy!
And that’s it for March! Not a lot of stories to tell from last month, because most of them will be going into my separate travel album, but it was still fun to spend a couple of days looking back and recording those memories. I hope you enjoyed this peek into my 2019 album – see you next month for my April pages!
