Project Life 2012: February part 2

I have to tell ya, I am loving seeing my Project Life 2012 album coming together! Continuing with the February monthly focus on things we love, I found myself having completed another page this week, although I hadn't anticipated I would. And the way things are going, I can see myself doing another page in the week ahead - there are just so many things we love!

Anyway, here is the overview of the page:

I included a postcard for our new website which is still a work in progress, but when it's finished, we can use these postcards to promote it.

I also added a list of some random things which make me smile. I'd posted this on my blog last year, but as it still holds true, I just formatted it onto a digi 4x6 journal card, printed it out and added a 7gypsies sticker:
I added some smaller journalling cards about these:
Look at me with the "pointing to my smile" shot! Major silliness!

 I also got Chloe to document some of her current favourite things, and clipped in a headshot of her:
One of the highlights of the past week was me buying a new bag. Given I am a self confessed accessory-aholic, this isn't exactly an unusual occurence, but it definitely represents something I love, so I wanted to include it. And hey, this one is pretty AND practical - gotta love that! I just stapled the tag to a 4x6 patterned paper and added some journalling and a title:
Lastly, I included a small journal card about a range of artwork I love called 'gorjuss'. These beautiful little girls are the wonderful work of an amazingly talented artist called Suzanne. She produces original prints and there is also a whole range of merchandise featuring the artwork. I have most of that merchandise from cardmaking kits to bags to pin badges to business card holders to storage tins. I'm not being paid to include this incidentally - I just think it's utterly adorable. 

I also made a quick title card (featuring the beautiful sprayed effect 'love' digi stampfrom Katie Pertiet which I got as part of her Valentine freebie with DesignerDigitals):

I'm having a blast documenting all the things we love, and there is so much more to talk about in the rest of February!

I'm linking up again to The Mom Creative and One Happy Mama - be sure to stroll on over there for more Project Life loveliness.


  1. love the pages from this week and the way you inserted everybody's favorites!

  2. Brilliant idea to document things you love! I may have to steal this concept. Love it!

  3. Love your pages & LOVE how you added a list of things that make you smile!

    Have a great week!


  4. Love the smile factor. Great idea! Sometimes I get too focused on just what we are doing in a week instead of what makes me smile in this season. Love your pages.

  5. More beautiful pages, Jules! Love them! Hugs!

  6. Love your pages! Pretty and they do make me smile. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  7. Another great week Jules, really want your new bag!!

    Love that you are getting your daughter to contribute. I will be getting mine to do more as she gets bigger.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, have a great week.

    PS: I've linked you in my blogroll

  8. I love the theme idea! I have always thought about doing that, but I've never made it work! I take so many random pictures, but I love having them to look back at!

  9. Very nice...and I'm lovin' your new bag! I'm also a certified "bag hag" and have the closet to prove it. My weakness is Vera Bradley bags...I have to stay away from their sale page on-line! Your colors are so sweet and I also love how our books are taking shape. Have a wonderful weekend. Fondly, Roberta

  10. I love how you gave a card to your daughter (?) Chloe to record some things....I need to do that from my own. I also love how you are making sure YOU are in the album too. I have such trouble doing that! Thanks for stopping by my blog--and thanks for the inspiration here! Love what you are doing with your album:) -- heather from www.heathershomemadehome.com
