2019 Project Life Plans + Modern Printable Journal Cards

Azzari Jarrett | Project Life 2019 Title Page | 6x12 layout

A new year brings a fresh start in many ways. After going strong with project life from 2013 - 2015, my albums from 2016 - 2018 are still left unfinished. I am determined not to quit, and starting fresh in 2019 is just what I need.

I will be using a 6x12 inch album this year. I’ve had this black We R Memory Keepers album for a few years now, and I can’t seem to find this exact one online anymore, it looks to be discontinued. Here is an aqua version, and it looks like Studio Calico has 6x12 inch cloth options.

Here is a look at my 2019 title page:

Azzari Jarrett | 2019 Project Life Title Page | 6x12 layout

I used Design H page protectors for this layout. I’m finding that 6x12 inch pocket pages will be a little hard to find, but I think I will use my fuse tool to create custom page pockets based on what I already have.

I first designed and used these title card designs in 2017, and I love all of the cohesiveness it gives my albums. The “and now let’s begin again” journal card is from Ali Edwards’ January Stories by the Month subscription.

I’m looking at this project as more of a creative mindset. Adjusting and bending, and making this project work for me instead of the other way around. I’m really excited about this year, this new format is just what I need to get me motivated!

If you’d to use these title cards in your layout, you can find them in my shop. Definitely let me know if you decide to use them.

And just for fun, my title pages from 2018, 2017, 2016, and 2015.

February Shop Update

"Everyday" Gouache Art Print | Azzari Jarrett Photography & Design

One of my goals for this year is to update my little shop monthly with my creative work (photography, art, design, and documenting) from the previous month.

With my art, my intention is to include a bit more diversity in markets where not everyone looks like me - curly hair, brown skin. As a mother of three girls, I think it is important for them to see themselves reflected in my work.  A peek from my sketchbook, below.

Take a look at February's release - including a few art prints, photography prints, and two sets of Project Life printable digital cards.
