Project Life 2015: Early April

As I've mentioned before, I am approaching Project Life spreads every few weeks this year, as opposed to the weekly spreads I have completed the last few years. I absolutely love this approach and I really think that finding a frequency that works for you is one key element to being successful with your Project Life album. So this spread covers early April - roughly the first two weeks - including Easter, some rainy day pics, and a trip to the fire station.

Another key element, is finding cards that you love. And right now, the Studio Calico monthly kit is my very favorite. I just received my May kit last Friday and can't wait to dig into it once I gather another set of photos to print.

And as with many of my spreads, you'll notice I have roughly half color photos and half black and white, carefully choosing color photos that "go" together.

The turquoise "these are the days" card is from the Jade Edition of Project Life.

Another fun element I added to this spread was two of Ali Edwards digital stamps from her Rain or Shine set. I used this technique to print them onto peach colored labels (from the Studio Calico kit) before adding them to the spread.

And that wraps up early April!
