Hi Everyone! January has been a horrible month for us as we keep passing nasty germs around. We are so ready to be healthy again! My littlest has been hit really hard and is having a really rough week. I'm spending most of my time holding and comforting him so there hasn't been any craft time since he got sick.
I thought I would share the filler cards for my title page for my 2012 Project Life album today. I'm not caught up with my 2011 album, but I plan to work on my current album and work on catching up my 2011 album at the same time. Of course, I'm a couple weeks behind already with us being so sick this month. Anyway, here's my title page for my 2012 album.
Just like on my 2011 Title Page, I wanted to include a family photo, individual photos of my kiddos, and a photo of them together. This year, I also decided to a white borders to my photos. I'm not sure yet if I will do it with every photo, but I really like how it helps the photos stand out. I'm printing all my photos using my Epson Picturemate Charm. I love this little printer so much! The print quality is just beautiful!
I created this card using some patterned papers from a My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose paper pad. I die cut the label using a Labels 8 nestability die. Those cork alphabet letters are from Close to My Heart and I just love them! I love the texture they add. The black image under the year is a stamp from a Waltzingmouse Stamps set, Very Vintage Labels No. 4, and the sticker is from a 7Gypsies sticker set. I love that quote and thought it was perfect for this project.
My inspiration for this filler card came from Gillian's PL Title Page. I just loved the look and created a similar card in photoshop. I used some of her wording and added some of my own. Then, I printed it on a piece of patterned paper and added the heart and circles on the top. I die cut the circles using nestability dies, patterned paper, and a cork sheet. The heart is die cut from red felt, of course. (It's a pretty red felt and not as orange as it appears on the screen! lol)
Somewhere along the way, it popped into my head that I would like to include a silhouette family to represent our family. I created this in photoshop and printed it on patterned paper. I added a little patterned paper banner and a cork number to finish it off.
Are you creating a Project Life album this year? I'd love to see it!
Have a great week!
