Going digital has been a game changer for me as far as staying current in documenting our family stories. Digital Project Life especially will continue to be my go-to memory keeping system for 2016. There are so many amazing Digital Project Life Kits available but this year, in my ongoing effort to simplify-simplify, I have chosen two core kits to work with. Not sure if I can do it, but I’m going to give it a try. (It’s just so tempting to buy something new when you get those coupon codes!) One for sure exception to my 2-kit rule will be when they finally release the Project Life App for Android. I am saving the Project 52 2016 edition as my inaugural purchase to celebrate this long-awaited release.
Digital Project Life Kits for 2016
My Digital Project Life Kits for 2016 are the Everyday Adventure Edition (designed by Stampin’ Up for Project Life) and the Everyday Edition. These two digital full collections should provide me with more than enough creativity for my memory keeping in 2016. With so many Digital Project Life kits to choose from, it was hard to narrow it down, but here is what stood out for me with these two specifically.
What I love about the Everyday Adventure Edition:
- Vast color options ranging from tonal neutrals to bright bolds–I love neutrals, alot, but with five daughters and two granddaughters, sometimes my layouts demand bright and pretty;
- Clean and simple graphic designs that will easily interact with my photos–I’m currently loving hearts, hexagons and chevron;
- Simple words and phrases that will complement a variety of layout themes; and,
- The 53-piece brush set that can be used over and over again–no ink or stamp pads required.
What I love about the Everyday Edition Collection:
- Fabulous color combinations, lots of white space and a sprinkling of gold foil (Yes, please!);
- Cool, crisp graphic designs and subtle backgrounds;
- Horizontal and vertical card options; and,
- It’s both pretty and functional which equates to highly usable in my book.
I spent way more time than I should have trying to pick out “just two” kits to use in 2016. I’ve read where others have tried this approach (some have even used only one collection…Gasp!). They reported feeling more productive and less overwhelmed when limiting themselves and I can definitely see the upside to this way of thinking. Given my past history of inevitably agonizing over what products to use (or not to use), I have a strong hunch that this might just work wonders for me. If my goal is to simplify, this makes complete sense right? And so, I’m in.
A Simply Creative 2016
When I think of all the photo possibilities that I might encounter throughout the upcoming year, these two digital collections really seem to have all of the bases covered for me. My goal for 2016 is to keep the focus on creating clean and simple digital layouts that document the everyday, occasions big and small, sports, nature, and other randoms as seen through my eyes and captured through my lens.
These newest digital collections of mine have me feeling super inspired already. My ongoing love affair with memory keeping and Project Life is still going strong. It’s going to be a Creative 2016 and I cannot wait to get started!
Thank you to Becky Higgins and Project Life for making clean and simple memory keeping both cool and beautiful!
Until next time,
