Project 365 - 2020 - Week 7

Each year, the Project Life app typically comes out with a new Project 52 kit.  This year, they didn't.  I'm not really sure what is going on with Becky Higgins related to Project Life but I know that in the Fall of last year, she closed her office and they started working out of their homes.  Perhaps they are having financial issues since making the app free (although there are plenty of in app purchases). 

In addition, all production for physical Project Life products has ceased and she stated she will no longer make physical products (albums, sheet protectors, kits, etc) - I understand it in a way about the kits since the app is so popular now but albums and sheet protectors are still needed.

Instead she seems to be focusing on making wrapping paper and notebooks - excellent quality, as always but no offense to Becky, I can get notebooks and wrapping paper anywhere - it may not be as good as quality as her products but for the price, I am willing to let it go - especially since wrapping paper just eventually ends up in the trash anyway. 

But...back to Project Life - since there are no plans for any more kits, I decided to use the Bloom Edition this year and I really like it - a lot!  I'm kind of glad there isn't a new Project 52 this year because it forced me to take a look at what is already available (and trust me, there are a TON of kits) so I agree with Becky that there really isn't a need for new kits at this time.

I got one of my wishes concerning the app - in the past you could only work on one devise, then you had to download and send it to the other devise as an email or in dropbox and it was a pain.  Now, you can start your project on one devise and finish on the other - that is awesome!  Sometimes I am sitting waiting on my car to be serviced and I can start a layout on my phone, then when I get home, finish it up on my iPad (which I can see better).  I love this feature and have been wanting it for a long time so I am glad it was added.

The only other feature I would like that would make the app 100% perfect to me, is a search function.  For instance, if I want to use a card that has eyeglasses on it, I could do a search for eyeglasses and all the kits/cards with eyeglasses would show up so I could pick one. 

Becky has said some new things (not kits but other things) are coming so I am hoping and hoping that it will be a search feature - finally!  I guess time will tell. are my Week 7 pages - click to enlarge

Project 365 - 2020 - Weeks 5 & 6

I didn't post last week's layouts because I was sick.  I have been sick pretty much all last week but I am feeling better today.  Therefore, I am posting post weeks 4 & 5 this week

Project 365 - 2020 - Week 3

I just realized that since this is leap year, I probably should call it Project 366 this year.  Oh well...

Anyway, here are week 3 pages. (Click on image to enlarge)

Project 365 - 2020 - Week 2

As mentioned before, one of my goals for this year is to keep my Project 365 (aka: Project Life) up to date.

I did finish my 2019 album but I spent a full long weekend catching it up and I don't want to play catch-up.  It is so easy to keep it up, if you do it everyday and so far, so good (even though it has only been 2 weeks)

Here are the pages for week 2, along with an extra page that I just had to made to record a day at the beach with my niece and great niece.

Project 365 - 2020 - Week 1

I have been doing Project 365 (aka: Project Life) since 2009.  I have never posted my pages on my blog before but I am going to do that this year.  Mainly because I think it will help me ensure I don’t fall behind on them.

I use the Project Life app - which was a game changer when introduced to the scrapbooking world.  Becky Higgins is a creative genius !!

I typically have 2 pages a week but sometimes I may have more pages, depending on what is going on and once and a while, I will only have one page.  It just depends.

So...without further ado, here are my week one pages.

One Little Word - 2020

It has been several years since I did One Little Word, inspired by Ali Edwards.

I found a little quiz on her Facebook page (I believe) to help me choose a word for 2020 and the results stated my possible word is "Harmony".

When I read the meaning - I thought "BOY, DOES THAT FIT ME!"

Harmony: You are seeking agreement in your life. Your search for balance and peace propels you forward. 

That is exactly what I want...agreement in my life, balance and peace!!  So I am going to focus on this word for 2020.   Sadly, I am not going to follow Ali's workshop for various reasons but I am going to let this word be my guide.
