Project Life 2015 – March to April

Well, I’m really behind on posting pages from my 2015 Project Life album. However, at least I’m up to date on creating them. I usually work a month or so in hand to give me time to scribble ideas down and gather photos from different devices. And as it stands, I’ve completed pages through to the end of June 2015 and have a few pages done for July!

Note: for this post, I’ve had a go at scanning the pages to see if I get a clearer result than photographing from above.

So, the March pages start with a couple of nights out and cards from the Boys Rule kit.

Some days I just get snap happy, so I used a multi-pocket page protector from Simple Stories on the other side.

Right-hand side: a day spent with friends in Clifton (more Boys Rule cards).

On the right is my monthly collage of standalone snaps from the course of the month. I use Photoshop templates to pull these together.

Moving on, April’s monthly collage, with captions this time, and a sunny trip to Bournemouth.

I feel like it’s safe to do this in the smaller format, whereas they’d get crumpled up in a 12×12 album. These are some bits and pieces from the Cornwall trip.

The ‘noted’ card is from the Seafoam edition.

I really like the photo templates with big white borders (and it means I can use low res pictures from Facebook!)
