Project Life Update.

With all the fuss over being sick! things have been slow with project life, so today I opened up iphoto and started trying to get Organized!   I did this by making albums for 3 x 4 images and 4 x6 images so I could print them in batches. I print at home so I have more control over what my images look like, it costs me more to do this, but I wouldn't change it. I ended up printing 4 a4 pages filled with 3 x 4 images 

I'm not that great with a I hand cut all my images. Yep I'm crazy but I like the control of it all, so I sit on the couch with something playing on youtube and have a cutting marathon!

I looked through my kit cards, and to be honest, I am not totally in love with the cards that came in our kit, they didn't speak to me! so after being inspired by Elise's cards that she makes herself, I opened up photoshop and got busy.
I used some of my fave quotes that I've found in pintrest, and added them as an overlay over funky backgrounds.

I also decided I wanted to make some custom cards for our engagement part of project life, at first I wasn't going to make a big fuss, just the picture I used the announcement and be done with it...but then I sat for a moment and thought, this IS a BIG DEAL! why wouldn't I want to document our engagement/proposal!  so I started making a few cards for that....

I got a little carried away, which is why my spreads aren't finished for me to show you, because I got caught up in photoshop  hehe.
I also made the decision that all my 'handwritten' cards would be done in photoshop using typewriter font for a cleaner look. John liked that idea so Ill run with it.
If I make enough 3 x 4 I might make them into a set to steps at the moment though.
so that's where I am at with my project life! I am almost all caught up, and tomorrow in my Around the nook post, I'll show the two finished spreads.
have a beautiful weekend.
