Project Life 2016 Introduction Layout Using Project 52

Hi friends, so yesterday I introduced my plans for memory keeping for 2016 and am so excited about the response and I’m so happy to see the excitement in the industry about this project. I’m looking forward to a great scrapbooking year and I’m so happy you are here to share it! Today I created a video showing you how I created my Introduction layout in my 2016 album. This layout is a bit different from any I’ve done before – I’m creating in Real Time!!!!! So grab a cuppa something and settle in, it’s long but filled with some great tips!

Did you enjoy that? Leave me some comments down below and let me know how you like Real Time videos – some people love them and love to hear how I make my design decisions during the process. I’m not planning to make all my videos like this, but I would like to share a few in this way throughout the year!

So let me show you the layout that I created above, so you can take in all the details.Project Life 2016 Introduction Layout Using Project 52


I chose one large photo on the one side and then all white cards on the right side of this layout. I decided to write my journaling on top of the photo, in the negative space provided by the slate terrace we were standing on. Then I set about to place embellishments.

For the journaling cards I added embellishments that carried the mint and pink color scheme throughout, with gold touches. I am absolutely in love with that little bird, and I overlapped her little wing tail just a tiny bit over the photo. She is a happy little bird!

The January card is lovely and simple, so I added a simple 2016 in gold. These two cards are very simple, and I used the Maggie Holmes heart transparency to create a tiny bit of overlap, again. Just to join these two cards together.

The lower card didn’t need much either, so two simple strips and done.

Here is a photo of the layout inside the album. Again, this is still my 2015 album while I work on finishing that year up, and then the new year’s layouts will have their final home in their own album later on. But for now, this is where it is.

I am loving working with the Project Life App and am loving these layouts. Stay tuned for the first week of layouts that I’m working on right now (you saw a sneak peek at those in my previous video and I can’t wait to show you those).

See you soon!
