Project Life: July 2016.

This morning I finally had time to add the finishing touches to my July spreads. I often put together the pages without journalling first and fill that in later, sometimes not until the month is over when I have more perspective on what I want to include. This year I've been keeping notes on my phone about daily events - just some short keywords about each day, and it has made it so much easier to keep track of everything! I wish I had started doing this sooner. In any case, here are my eleven spreads for the month of July. (These do not include our trip to Greece which I have yet to finish and will be sharing separately.)

Introducing the month. Calendar card from the Project 52 2016 Edition (recoloured to all white) and July stamp from Paislee Press. Journalling card on the left side from the Everyday Edition and the cards on the right side from the new Better Together Edition - my favourite release in July.

The first day of our summer vacation, when we went strawberry + raspberry picking. I was feeling a bit uninspired this month and decided to try something new so I bought some Paislee Press kits and challenged myself to use them throughout the month, mostly the Backyard BBQ Kit. The colours worked so well with my photos from July! I supplemented it with cards from the Moments Like These, Everyday and Midnight Editions (often recoloured).

About a music festival we attended one summer evening. Journalling card from the Midnight Edition (recoloured), filler cards from Backyard BBQ and Summer Manifesto (the 4x6 "cards" are from the festival's official website).

Time with my mum + sisters. Cards from the Moments Like These Edition (recoloured to match the colour scheme of Backyard BBQ).

About a day I spent with my friend Linda. Products from Backyard BBQ.

Documenting a visit from my friend Evelina + her two girls. (She took the photos of me.) Products from Backyard BBQ.

More about what we did during our summer vacation, before we went to Greece. Journalling card from the Midnight Edition (recoloured), the rest from Backyard BBQ.

After Greece, when we went to the island of Aspö in the archipelago of Karlskrona and stayed on the top floor of the old Harbour Pilot Tower turned hotel. Once again, products from Backyard BBQ (except the "We are here" sticker which is from the From Where I Stand kit (recoloured).

More about Aspö, and more Backyard BBQ with a stamp from the From Where I Stand kit.

A BBQ with family. I think you can guess where the products are from by now ;)

Blueberry picking on the final day of July, as well as the final day of our vacation. Backyard BBQ except for the 4x6 card which is from Better Together and "get outside" sticker from the recent Fresh Air Kit (which I am looking forward to using a lot more for my August spreads).
