Digi Project Life | Christmas insert pages

I thought I'd share a couple of Christmas insert pages I created for my Project Life book. I usually stick with the weekly pages but for big events and events with lots of family I like to make insert pages to make sure everyone is in my book. Only a few more days until we can print our 2013 books! Yay!

I have absolutely loved doing Project Life this year. I'm looking forward to seeing what next year brings!

2014 Wall Calendar

I thought I'd share with you today some wall calendars I made for my in-laws as a Christmas gift. (I had to hold off posting these until I actually gave them their gifts!). I used a bunch of super fun digi goodness from Splendid Fiins to create these calendar toppers!

A couple images! | Digi Project Life Intro Page & P&Co pages

I've got a couple of pages to share with you today!

It's almost the end of the year and while I've stayed completely up to date with my weekly Project Life pages, I'd completely procrastinated making an introduction page and a cover page for my printed book. Well, if I want to print right after New Years I really had to get going, so ... wait for it … I finally scrapped an intro/cover page (I'll probably use it for both).

For the next two pages I used a punched-out template set from Wishing Well Creations. I love the cut-out look!

This is a page I scrapped after my daughter and I each snapped photos of our adorable pup. Maggie (a Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier) has always been so incredibly mellow and sweet. My daughter loves to put a Santa hat on her and for the most part Maggie is  totally fine with it. Dang she's cute!

And finally, here's a winter page

A couple Pixels & Co. layouts …

Now that my vacation album is off to print I have time to create pages from various events. I enjoyed the vacation album, but it's fun to scrap random pages. I've been playing with some awesome designs from Pixels & Co.! Karla Dudley Designs recently released an awesome set of templates - the Jack album templates - and I simply had to play! I made a page for my daughter last night and a page for my son and me Friday night. I love 'em!

My book is going off to print! | Mediterranean Vacation Album!

This is it! I'm sending my album off to print at Blurb tonight or tomorrow night. It's been a really big project over this past month and I've really enjoyed it! I've shared a lot of my pages (but not all) here on my blog but I thought I'd share the whole thing at one time. It was such a fabulous trip and I can't wait to get my album back from the printer!!

I really enjoy creating themed albums!

This is the cover to the album:

This is the intro page to the album:

These pages are the "guts" of the album:

When I was looking at all my pages I really felt like the prior page (the page from St. Peter's Square) really didn't work as a final page. I needed something to show that I had come to the end of the book and our trip, so this is what I came up with:

And finally … I needed an image for the back cover of the album. The back cover of the book isn't always noticed, but for the times that people do notice the back album cover I wanted to design a page. This is what I came up with this morning:

Thanks for looking!
