{Project Life: A4 Style} Week 1 -- January 1 - January 6

Yay! I am so excited with this year's project I've been planning. I've decided to join in the Project Life fun! However, I am doing it my way. Since, I am being thrifty and can't afford to purchase real Project Life merchandise from Becky Higgins, I have decided to make mine from scratch (well, with the help of free PL printables I have collected from Pinterest!).

Also, to make it easier for me to find supplies, I have decided to make my Project Life in A4 style sheets. This is because these are readily available at the nearby bookstore and does not cost me that much. That way, I can still enjoy doing the project without having to break the bank. :)

Just a quick introduction on my own PL style, I have used a couple of alternative supplies that can be easily found. For my PL album, I have decided to make use of a clear book (those that you buy from the office supplies' store which is basically a book with clear pockets inside so you can slip in sheets of paper). For the sheets I slip into the pockets, I have used overhead projector sheets (aka acetate sheets) to adhere my PL journaling tags and photos to. That way, it appears to look like a real PL album or page. All are in A4 size.

So, this is for Week 1 (Jan 1 - 6). Basically just me and BabyLove's activities for the first week of 2013. :)

The whole page for Week 1. :)

Upper row of photos is a photo of me illustrating hand numbering (I don't know what the heck to call it) 2-0-1-3. :)

Some of the journaling tags or photo mats I used on this project are actually note pads from Papemelroti. They have these wide range of kraft paper note pads that I just love and would go with almost any color theme. Here, it can be seen as a mat for my photo.

Some of the letters I used I cut from my Craft Robo, and covered them in glitter glue, because I don't have any Letter Thickers readily available to purchase. So, I make them myself. I have also used fabric tapes for embellishments.

 Sorry for the crappy photos. I just took these photos from my phone because I could not find my digital camera. >.< Nevertheless, I hope you see them.

I still have a lot of room for improvement. I feel that my page is still a little bit bland and flat and boring. >.< Please, please, PLEASE do share me your thoughts on how it looks and any advice if you have. I really do appreciate the feedback, good or bad. I really need the comments to improve myself. :)

Anyways, that's that. If you want to join in the fun, simply share your Project Life project with the link to your blog post below.

  1. Hey Marielle,
    I've just come across your blog today & I already love it. You've really inspired me with your Project Life layouts. My husband will despair when he hears there is something else I want to try out!

    Love Katie x

    P.s. I love your layout too!

  2. Hi Marielle, Your pages are so fun! Love the little calendar and washi tape & lettering. I keep meaning to try project life out some day. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Hello Mel!!

      Thank you for ever being so supportive, even for amateur bloggers/scrappers like myself. :) Sorry for the super late reply, I've been busy being a single mom. LoL! I am now trying my hardest to get back to regular blogging, as I miss it so much already!
