Monday Madness

Okay...deep breath.  I'm so friggin' excited to present this week's Monday Madness.  I want to give a little background first.  Last year, Creating Keepsakes KOTM club offered an amazing project idea/album by Becky Higgins called the 365 project.  The kit had sheet protectors, journaling cards, weekly cards, stickers, embellishments and more for only $39.99.  I talked to my good friend about it and got her excited about the idea of doing a 365 project using this super cool kit.  Creating Keepsakes did an article about it in their magazine with examples from their top designers.  I was super excited to start my project.  Alas - it wasn't met to be.  The kit sold out in like 10 hours with thousands of customers confused and pissed.  Becky got a lot of insane comments about the matter and no additional kits were ever manufactured...until now.

I was reading Ali Edwards' blog recently and saw that she was doing a 365 project using Project Life by Becky Higgins.  The concept was identical to the 365 project but with different materials.  I looked into it more and found out that it is indeed exactly like the 365 project.  And - now you can do your project digitally.  Digitally there is a day or month option.  So it goes without saying that I'm going to be doing something with these kits.  I haven't decided if I'm going to do the paper kit or try digital.  I'm really interested in doing the monthly digital kit and focusing on the word balance.  We'll just have to see. The paper kits are being sold on Amazon here.  Needless to say - I'm shaking in my boots over here.  Can't wait to get started - just need to make a choice.

This week: I plan on putting all my layouts in their new categories.  A while back I read the book Photo Freedom by Stacy Julian and adopted her approach to categorizing my layouts; People I Love, Things I Do, Places I Go, & All About Me.  I'm adding one more binder soon - New Layouts.  I want to be able to look at my new stuff before filing it away.  I really like the system and I highly recommend reading the book.  I also hope to get back into the challenge swing.  That's about it on the crafty front.  I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday.  Until then...Happy Crafting.
