Project Life - One Pagers

I can't stop singing the praises of a ONE page weekly layout. A lot of people are moving more towards a looser- monthly format, but I love sitting down each Sunday night and working on the previous week. So I do love weekly, but it IS a bit much some weeks. A lot of weeks we just do the same routine- eat out once or twice, go to the gym, go on bike rides, etc. Of course all of that is worth documenting, but not at the tune of two 12x12 pages each week. That's why a single page can often sum up the week without feeling like it's a task. Done is better than perfect.

Here are some of my favorite, recent one-page layouts.

  1. are you using a specific template for your digital PL layouts? I noticed your edged aren't rounded and your shadows are really good :)

    1. I have created my own templates in Photoshop then add shadows at the end, although I'm not realizing I should just add shadows onto my template! Thanks! ;-)

  3. I just found your blog via the One Little Bird cage announcement and you just gained a new follower! Your layouts are beautiful and I am especially loving the brush strokes behind the week numbers. Do you mind sharing where they are from?
