January Project Life Blog Hop


Hello friends! Welcome to my blog and this month's session of the Project Life Blog Hop. On the last Saturday of each month, a few of us get together to link up our blogs and share how we are using Project Life.

I am still recovering from the "great move" (You can read more about it here). Just before sitting down to write this blog post, I found my Project Life box and started to unpack it, so needless to say, I have not done much physical work using Project Life. However, I have been clinging to the digital aspects of Project Life and marrying the digital app to My Digital Studio (MDS).

Sometime in December, Becky Higgins announced Project 52, and I clung to the idea of documenting life each week. I've been using the Project Life app to create layouts on the go and then exporting these layouts into MDS to add more embellishments, journaling, and other details. This way to, I can also keep all my pages together in one MDS file and at the end of the year get it printed through Stampin' Up! So far, I'm three weeks behind. Go me!

I would like to share a spread from my first week of Project 52. Both of these pages originated in the Project Life app and then exported to MDS to add the finishing touches.


I completed this first layout before I decided that I want to do all my journaling in MDS, so I did the journaling through the Project Life app. Once exported into MDS, I added the cute little tree to the title card.



I did a lot more in MDS to the second layout. When I exported this page to MDS, all it contained was the pictures and the decorative cards. I added all the embellishments (trees, ribbon, flower) and the journaling in MDS. The Project Life app doesn't allow you to put things other than journaling on the cards, so I like how MDS allows me to add stamps and embellishments.

Thanks for hopping by my blog this month. I'm hoping that within a few more days my craft room will be in a condition where I can spread out with my Project Life and continue working on my physical album, now that I actually know where that album is.

Hope on over to Katina's blog to see what Project Life awesomeness she has.

Happy Stampin'!
