Project Life 2014 | Week 8

Week eight was sure a pretty one! So pretty, in fact, that I finally sucked it up and bought myself another $2 digi layout template…the Project Life Squared Away Template 1.  I had a crazy stash of images from our sail on President’s Day (Monday of week 8) — so I definitely wanted to make sure I squeezed in as many photos as possible.

Oh and this week was one for the record books seeing as it was my *very last* week of regular work! Can you say early retirement??? Boy, did it feel amazing leaving work that Friday afternoon and knowing that Jereme and I will be traveling and living life on our watch for the next year or so.:)

*products used: lots of ali edwards brushes (my favorite); pictures+words No. 5 photo templates from Paislee Press; hello my name is journaling cards from Paislee Press, and LOTS of things from the Jade digital PL kit. (I get zero kickbacks from any of these links, just fyi.)

*project life is a memory-keeping system + lifestyle. In 2014, i’m creating a digital spread for every week of the year and printing a final bound book at the end of twenty-fourteen. You can view all of my project life posts here.

>>Thanks for visiting LAHOWIND sailing blog! We’d love for you to get to know us and follow our story as we attempt to navigate a whole new world of sailing, as we cruise the Bahamas + Caribbean.

Beautiful photos! You definitely have a consistent brand over here :) Have you considered doing mini photography tutorials on this site? You could speak to your niches photography + sailing! We just got a Canon Rebel, and we have the whole Adobe suite. I’m so overwhelmed by the thought of learning it all!

Thanks so much Breezy! YOUR photos are SO gorgeous! I would love to know what equipment you were shooting with before if you just got the Rebel. Don’t change a thing! I’ve never really considered tutorials, but I would love sneaking those into my blog posts. Hmmm…something to consider for sure. :) -Kim

Aw shucks, thanks! We don’t have any photos from the Rebel up yet. All the current photos are from whatever we could get our hands on. Mostly iPhones and a Fuji film point and shoot digital camera. The film photos with the light leak are from a 70s era 35mm Minolta (Granpa let us raid his camera collection). I would totally keep up with a weekly/monthly mini tutorial if you decide to do one!

Hi. What kit did you use for the large 4×6 journaling cards? I looked in my Jade kit and can’t find them. Your pages are stunning and your photos are as well. Thank you!!

Hi Sabrina! You’re right, they are not from the Jade kit. I forgot I used those from the Coral kit. Thanks for the kind words! -Kim

Looking good you guys! I am a little bummed to see Jereme shaved his beard off though. I am glad you got a good record of of it! xo
