One Little Word Album in the Works

This is my first year doing One Little Word and I am totally hooked. I love this project already. I am witnessing my word in daily life and making small (and large) changes as I reflect on it. Making the album is a great reminder and a great inspiration for keeping it going.

Here are my cover and my first few pages.

I enlarged a 3×4 card from the Ali Edwards One Little Word Main Digital Kit to 6×8 and added the one little word word art (also from Ali). The black star tab at the top is from one of Ali’s story kits and the black polka dot paper is a recolored Ali card from a digital story kit, and the black stickers are from the One Little Word sticker kit (currently sold out but the stickers are also part of the digital kit.)  The COMMIT alphas and gray patterned paper that is the background frame for the page as well as the scalloped strip behind my word are from Felicity Jane.

The Intentions page is part of the main digital kit, the I can do this sticker from the sticker kit, and the Gray stars are Gossamer Blue (out of business now – boo hoo!). I used some more of the black polka dot strips to both sides of this spread to create some uniformity. I see a color palette definitely repeating throughout the rest of my album!  I also added an Avery Index tab to a 3×8 page protector where my self portrait is housed (of half of a self-portrait!) and added the embrace your word sticker into the tab from the sticker kit. Here is a close up of the tab. I actually really like this portrait, which is rare for me! I took it as part of the #Thursday3 that I am participating in this year.

The One Little Word transparency behind the photo is from the One Little Word physical Main Kit (also sold out.)

This is the back side of the 3×8 self-portrait. I created this in Photoshop using the twenty eighteen word art by Paislee Press. I added my word as a text layer behind the year word art and then typed some quotes on a rectangular clipping mask.

These are my opening pages for the January prompts. The Jan card is from the physical One Little Word Main kit and the card below it was included in my Powersheets order from Cultivate What Matters. The Powersheets are an awesome goal setting (and accountability) tracing system and I am excited to try them out this year. When I got the card in the package with my order, I knew I had to include it in my OLW album. The saying is the perfect quote for the reason why I chose Commit as my word this year!

These cards are all from the One Little Word Main Digital Kit with the labels and stickers from the physical main kit.

I can’t wait to fill in the rest of January with all of my accomplishments!

 

2018 Project Life Title Page

I am super stoked to be using 6×8 size for my 2018 album. I already have ideas for the first few weeks of the year and the stories I want to tell. But first, I held out for the twenty eighteen word art by Paislee Press knowing it would be released this weekend. And as soon as it was, I created my 2018 opening page. The photos are technically from November but I think they are a good snapshot of what we look like to start our year.

The little hearts and Stories of life stickers are from Ali Edwards and the Remember This card is also from a collaboration kit called Foundation that include Paislee Press as one of the designers.

Here is a close up of the twenty eighteen word art. I love it so much I also used it in my One Little Word album and I am sure I will use it several more times this year. Love love love!
