Project Life 2014 | Title Page

131230 PLTitlePage2014-2I have several projects to wrap up around here (including Project Life 2013 and December Daily) but I am really excited for 2014.

Jim recently made this cross-stitch of our family.  I love it so much — makes a perfect addition to my title page for 2014.  I used the Martha Stewart Cross-Stitch Family Portrait tutorial to draw the figures and he stitched it up.  The Cross Stitch Family Patterns are here.

131230 PLTitlePage2014-10The This is Our Story stamp is from Catslife Press.  Definitely one of my favorite stamps.  The 4×6 card is from Project Life Midnight Edition.

The page protector came from the Just Add Color Kit on HSN.  I love all of the 2×2 pockets. I split the kit with three other friends but am considering ordering one for myself because I want more of those page protectors.  They are so fun.

Samuel started drawing people this month.  I made an overlay using a couple of his drawings.  I look forward to doing this more this year and incorporating more of his artwork into our family book.  The 4×6 card is from the Project Life Jade Edition.

131230 PLOrganized-4I will be using the Project Life Jade, Midnight, Sunshine and Seafoam editions for my 2014 albums (I say albums because I can never fit a year into ONE).  The Coral Edition is on its way from Oregon — I decided to split it with my friend and she’s shipping half of the kit to me.

131230 PLOrganized-7The 4×6 cards are organized by kit (and theme) here.

I will be using the We R Memory Keepers 12×12 binder album in black again this year. When I started in 2010, I went with the We R Memory Keepers albums in Buttercup. Unfortunately, last year’s shade of buttercup was more of a pastel yellow so I decided to go with black for our family albums.  I figured that black is easy to find — and it’s hard to mess up black.  Ha!

  2. Wow, I’m blown away! Your PL cover page is gorgeous! I love those little 2×2 inch slots. Jim’s cross stitch is way too cute, and the rest of your photos/elements all work together in the cutest way ever. Only YOU can make it look so pleasing. Gee, Autumn, your organization is impressive. I like how you have sorted your PL cards. You’re set and ready to go. I wish you a most joyous PL journey this new year. As your faithful fan, I’ll be rooting for you all the way. Happy New Year, Autumn!

    Jim is on his third family. I added you to the list for this year. He even said that he’ll add Cosmo to the picture. Ha!

  4. I’m playing with watercolor right now, in hopes of starting the new year with an art journal. Sigh. My pages are coming out way too crummy. I’m not good at this, Autumn! I think I’ll start taking out my scrapbooking supplies, which are all under the bed. It’s scary under there! LOL!

  5. I love your PL style :) I am a part time PL-er and I love all the inspiration on your blog!! What I love the most is your amazing organization! I use little cardboard boxes from Michaels, one for my daughter (5th and Frolic and some minis) and Jade for my son. I’m sure that is an antique score from somewhere, but thought I’d ask :)

  6. Thank you, Amy!

    The boxes are from various thrift and antique stores. I am a big thrifter! I love the thrill of the hunt!

    By the way, I love your blog! Will be visiting it for inspiration on quiet activities!
