I needed some journaling cards for Project Life. I found some great paper called Metalo at Staples. I was really looking for some heavier cardstock, but so far this is working just fine. I'm writing on the cards with Sharpie fine tip markers and none of the ink has smeared, so I'm happy. The ink doesn't bleed through the paper either. I made my own graph paper at this site and printed it onto the paper. Then I let my Cameo do all the work and cut them out for me! yay!
So far I've only made 3x4 journaling cards. I'll be printing and cutting some 4x6 and 4x4 soon.
I want all of my 4x6 week cards to be somewhat consistent. I'll be using different patterns that I've already cut out (see my first Project Life post). I went straight to my Cameo to make some banners to put on each 4x6 card. I picked two different shapes and put 'week' on there in Lobster Two font (go download it - it's free!) I left room underneath 'week' to write the dates. I love some of the date stamps out there for Project Life, but I needed something flexible for the dates. Although I'm primarily going to be doing my weeks Monday - Sunday, there are some weeks that I may change the days... like when we leave next month for vacation on a Sunday, I'm going to do Sunday - Sunday to keep the whole vacation together. I'm going to use stickers to put the number of the week.
And here's some of the finished projects. I'm just going to pick whichever card I want for each week.
What do you think? How are you making your week cards?
I love reading each and every comment!
