If 2017 and I were in a boxing match, the score would be Diana: 0 2017: 1. Round 1, aka January, started off very positive, I mean I trained hard! But then I got over confident, I still held my own after a couple of jabs but then came the almighty upper cut! So dramatic! In all seriousness, January was alright, I have no reason to complain! Plus look at the bright side, I have a Top 5 for you guys! It’s been awhile, right?
This month’s faves are all about the products I will be using to document 2017 (I will kick your ass ’17!).
1. A Beautiful Mess Gray 9×12 Messy Book Album
TA-DA! My new album for the year! I decided to go with a 9×12 album and I loved this gray album from A Beautiful Mess. The inside of the album is a bright yellow, giving the album a pop of color. Sorry guys, I tried to link up the album and it is no longer on the website. Fingers crossed that changes!
2. Kellie Stamps Digital Month Pocket Page Cards
I feel like Kellie has done all the hard work for me with these monthly PL inserts. When you purchase the cards you get them in 4×6 and 3×4 inserts in JPEG and PNG files. If you’re like me and like to make intro cards to your layouts, like the one above, this set is perfect and ready to use for the year.
3. NessaSelwyn Metallic Taupe Travelers Notebook Cover
Using a monthly calendar helps me keep up with my Project Life documenting. So to help me keep up with my calendar I bought this midori cover, I mean look at that metallic color! You must check out Nessa Selwyn’s Etsy shop, it was really hard to choose which one to get.
4. Lamy Al-Star Charged Green Fountain Pen
I loooooove my Lamy pen! I already had a black one so I knew my next one would be a fun color. I had the major heart eyes when I saw the charged green color. Beautiful color, reminded me of a pear.
5. Jamaica Makes Reporter Acrylic Album
This year I plan to keep up with a mini album also. I’m liking using minis because this is where I really get to play with photos and Photoshop. This is the reporter size, which to me seems like you have to use it vertically, but I plan on using it vertically and horizontally. Should make for an interesting album!
It looks like 2017 will be well documented with the help of these items. I pretty much have no excuse to fall behind this year! Let’s get ready for round 2!
