Project Dig Deep | a few extras and a book party

Annette Haring

Thanks everyone for the support for the eBook! It's my first time ever being published, so it's pretty exciting for me :)

As part of the launch for the eBook, Big Picture Classes will be hosting an eBook Party next week, and I'll be doing a chat in the Project Life Community (it's free to join). I'll be hosting a chat in the community there on Friday 11-30-12 at 8 pm central time. I would love to have you join me!

I really loved these layouts I did. In fact, I created a bit more than there was room to show in the eBook, so I got permission to share the extras here! yay!!

Here are the pages from the personality "bonus" or "insight" pages I did (which you see above). The 6x12 striped page is just to set it apart from the other spread. If you flip that 6x12 grid page over, this is the title page. It's hard to see, but it's a little metal flair button from Amy Tangerine that says, "Let's Go" which I thought was perfect for pages highlighting her on the go personality. The paper is from Studio Calico.

In the eBook you can see quite a bit actually. On the back of the 8x10 large photo is a page where I talk about her and why I'm doing this layout, kind of an introduction. I'll admit I cried mama tears as I wrote it. Those are good tears, but just shows how much heart I put into this project. Then the parts you see peeking through are her just getting going at under a year old (she started walking at 10 months).

Also in the eBook you can see the next two page spread, where I highlighted her at 1 year and at 2 years old and showed her personality and growth during that time. (see why the mama tears, hello they grow up too fast!!)

This is the last page of the project, which I made with the Design G page protectors from Becky Higgins. I think I might add a right side to finish her at 2 years old, then do her when she is 3 as a left and right side, and repeat each year. I'm not sure if I said it in the eBook, but what I ended up doing was creating a mini-book within a book, which I totally love. If I do that I will eventually move this into her own "All About Maggie" book within my Library of Memories albums.

Here is a glimpse at another "insight" or "bonus" layout I made to celebrate our tradition of going to Rudy's for breakfast tacos. This is part of the right side of the layout (which is a Design A page protector). In the eBook you can see most of it but the 6x12 insert covers this part. 

I wanted to include it here because it shows how I capture the story of the clean hands. They have a really fun handwashing station and you get a sticker that says, "I have clean hands." Needless to say, this is always a highlight of the trip! :) To keep the layout from getting overwhelming I just used the sticker on a 3x4 piece of patterned paper and wrote the journaling on a shipping tag and slipped it in behind it. This technique works really well on the right side layouts because it's easy to pull things on that side.

I also used a Design I page protector as another insert for some Instagrams I had. That one of her in the elephant pajamas has to be one of my favorite photos from the whole time we've been going.

And on the back of that page are just some more Instagrams (these are 4x4 pocket pages).

Thanks for looking! I'm still pinching myself at being a part of this eBook. I've been a fan of the crew from Ella Publishing and Big Picture Classes since the days of Simple Scrapbooks. Finding them, along with Cathy Z and Ali Edwards are some of the reasons I got back into scrapbooking and I'm so thankful to be a part of this. Let me know if you have any questions! And I'll hope to be chatting soon with you this Friday!

Project Dig Deep and My First Giveaway!

Annette Haring

I've been so excited to share that I'm a contributor to this awesome eBook from Ella Publishing Co/Big Picture Classes. All about finding and telling the "deeper" stories or insight pages sparked by what we are already capturing in our Project Life pages (whether you do it weekly, monthly (like me), or some other way). The stories I share in the book are all about Maggie's "On the Go" personality and our "tradition" of breakfast tacos at Rudy's. Plus you can see my summer bucket list pages and my Take 12 layout from May that never made it to the blog! :) So excited to see my Maggie on the cover!

Here's the information from Ella Publishing:

Here is a look at some of the pages. I love all the different topics and the different styles of all the contributors. Lots of resources and creative ideas in here.

A look at my little Maggie's personality pages. With both of my insight pages I've created a foundation for continuing to tell the story if I choose to. Kind of a mini-book within a book. And with both of the insight pages I can either keep these in my current Project Life book, or add them to my Library of Memories albums (All About Maggie and Places We Go). 

Her personality pages were sparked by looking at my summer bucket list pages and seeing all these photos of her loving to be "on the go".

A look at Jessica's pages and her cute little Adeline. I really want to do a page on the story of Maggie's name soon.

As part of the launch for the eBook, Big Picture Classes will be hosting an eBook Party next week, and I'll be doing a chat in the Project Life Community (it's free to join). I'll be sure to let you know when I'll be hosting a chat. You can join the community here.
