Project Life 2012 : August 20-26

This time, last year.

As I reminder, I am sharing pages that I was “current” on last year, before I started blogging. For 2012 I used the digital Clementine collection and more of the year is available here.

Sharing another week from last year. Ken was away for the week and I was busy writing my thesis, but I still managed to fill the page with little events.

Looking back at this page, I am remembering how much I liked the clementine kit. Man, the orange and teal cards are cool. Maybe I am just in a mid year Seafoam slump; I am already looking forward to switching kits next year. I AM planning on using Midnight mixed into any/all of the kits, just because it is beautiful and versatile. But I digress—we were talking about 2012.

Ken went to Egypt for eight weeks last summer, and I took a screen shot of a skype call. I like that this is not just a picture of Ken (and tiny me) but also captures technology, my desktop, our contacts list, etc.

I went to see a friends band play one night, which is when most of the photos from this week were taken. I included a QR code for the YouTube videos from the night. The journal card already had the circular element in the design, so I just covered the interior with the code. No need to reinvent the wheel. Simple.

More little pieces of life on the other side of the page. Life was pretty crazy, but it was really important to me to keep going on this project. I made it happen by keeping it simple, using Design A pages, and not including inserts. Honestly, I was barely taking enough pictures as it was!

While Ken was gone, we made a deal that he would send me one photo of HIM each week. He sent me pictures of a lot of other things too, but once a week he handed over his camera or tracked down a picture someone else took. Having a specific target (of one) was a lot more effective than a general “take pictures please”.

To go with the picture, I made a simple little caption card. The design of this card is totally ripped off inspired by someone else, but I seem to have lost the source. I know Ali Edwards has used the tags in a similar way, but I copied this one right down to the staple 🙂 If it is yours, please leave a comment, and thank you! The label is printed straight on the paper and I made all eight at once. I love when I can batch-make elements, instead of digging out everything each time.

Movie ticket and poster. A project life classic.

I also used one journal card to document two little things I was loving. Nothing major, not worth a lot of real estate, but part of my life. Now I kind of want a jalapeño popper quesadilla….should not be blogging at lunch time. Also, I now see that I spelled jalapeño AND quesadilla wrong! It happens. Clearly, I like the food more than the name. It took me a year to notice, so I am not going to stress about it. Do you fix your typos? Move on? Call it linguistic evolution?

    Great pages. One of these days I’m going to add QR codes. It’s such a neat thing to have.
    Jalapeno Popper Quesadillas sound AMAZING! I don’t bother fixing typos most of the time. It happened, it’s there…if the thing is still readable that’s fine by me.
