  • HEAB - Oh my gosh, love that last page too – so cool how you journaled on the car window.ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer - Love these pages! Your photographs and journaling look so natural and lovely. It really looks like something you will be happy to look back through in 5 or 10 or more years. That will be awesome!ReplyCancel

Just an FYI, I’ll be posting about this album on Saturdays and Sundays for the next two weeks until I’m caught up. I’m 3 weeks behind and itching to be working on the current week.

  • kelley - quick question…do you print all your photos at home? how do you go about printing your 12×12 photos?ReplyCancel

    • manda - Yes, I print all of my photos on a Canon Pixma 6320. I use a professional lab to print 12x12s. White House Custom Color. :)ReplyCancel

  • Kellie Winnell - I love it, I love it! The cat = amazing! And the writing around people in photographs is something I love doing and seeing!ReplyCancel

PROJECT LIFE 2014 : WEEK 9

Week 9!

pl2014_week9-1

That craft paper with the paint…I’m really liking it! It was just some scrap I had laying around. I’m definitely gonna play with that some more.

pl2014_week9-2

5×7 insert to show a book I read that week.

pl2014_week9-4
pl2014_week9-3

Big ole print of my working on this art book. In the past, when I’ve cut up a large photo like this I’ve had it printed by whcc as a 12×12 first. This time, I just made a photoshop template and used that. Either way works.

  • Kellie Winnell - I seriously love this weeks spread. As if I don’t say that every time you share? But I really do. The photos of you and Wyatt are adorable. And I love your 12×12 cut up, very impressive! Something I really want to try one day.ReplyCancel

PROJECT LIFE 2014 : WEEK 8

I’ve been having the worst computer/printer issues. Two week worth of shipping replacement parts and eventually a brand new printer. Ug. Finally I’m able to get back to working in this album!

Here’s week 8. Nothing new from me really, and not particularly exciting.

pl2014_week8-1

The left side was mainly dedicated to a little outing me and the boys went on. Design B.

pl2014_week8-2

The right side is photos from my inside vs out dualitiess series. It’s Design B. I just printed the top 4x6s with two horizontal shots so that the whole page appears filled with 3x4s.

pl2014_week8-3

I ordered a Tiny Attacher a while back. I really love it.

PROJECT LIFE 2014 : WEEK 7

Week 7 complete! It always feels like an accomplishment and some sort of weight lifted every time I finish a week of this album! Don’t get me wrong I love it, but it IS work!

pl2014_week7-1

Design A on the left. Photos, photos, and more photos as usual.

pl2014_week7-2

  • rachel del grosso - oh that design b has never appealed to me, but you are making it look too beautiful to pass up!ReplyCancel

  • Kellie Winnell - Love this. I never thought to print my photos side by side and leave them like that. I print them just like that and then cut them up. I am so going to try this as it’s effective. Love the writing around Ansley [hope I spelt that right], effective.ReplyCancel

  • Brittney for Like An Arrow - Your book is coming out so great! I want to start this but I think its too late :/ next year!ReplyCancel

  • Lucy - I’m so impressed with your dedication. I love looking at other people’s Project Life books but have yet to start my own… you are giving me great inspiration though, thank you! xoxoReplyCancel

    • manda - Thanks Lucy! I’m impressed with my dedication too b/c I NEVER ever stick with things. I think what keeps me going is 1) knowing that these books are absolutely what I’d grab if my house was on fire 2) my kids looking back on them when they’re grown. I hope you decided to make one!ReplyCancel

  • Nina Wittw - Hi Manda:) This is ninatravels from instagram, as u know I love your books and I’m planning to make some, too. I’ve been searching for those “envelopes” (dont know if thats the right translation, hope you know what I mean, the “material” you put your photos into (and sorry for my english!;)
    for days, but I cant find good ones with different sizes for photos. Jeez, my english is gone, sorry. So may I ask where you get yours?
    Lots of love from Germany!ReplyCancel

    • manda - Hey Nina! I’m so happy you visited my blog. If you go to Amazon and search for “Becky Higgins page protectors” you will find them ALL!ReplyCancel

  • Nina Witte - and I cant even write my name right! lol.ReplyCancel
