This is my last blog post of 2011. Wow! I’m really looking forward to 2012. Lots of goals, as I mentioned the other day…
As one of my most favorite Christmas gifts, I was given the Clementine edition. I realize that there are still a few people who are unfamiliar with Project Life and all it’s awesomeness…and even if you are familiar with it, you may not have seen the new Clementine edition yet.
So, a tour:
This piece of lovliness is the Clementine edition binder in all its glory 🙂 Becky partnered with We R Memory Keepers to make the new binders and they are fantastic. Nice and shiny and sturdy and fabulous!
Here’s the Clementine edition Core Kit – full of goodies! This is the box that holds all the necessities – journaling cards, stickers, and title cards. Here’s a closer look at all of these things:
These cute boxes hold all of your 3″ x 4″ journaling cards.
These are the cards you use to fill one journal card slot on each week’s layout. The cards displayed on the bottom are part of your first and last page layouts.
Here are your title cards, and larger first and last page cards. Aren’t the designs just scrumptious?!
First and last page cards
Title cards – one for each week’s layout.
These are the folded journaling cards. Each card has a design on the front and the back, so you end up with 8 designs to choose from. Use these when you have a little more of a story to tell than will fit on your regular journaling cards.
Here are the stickers – some sheets have the days of the week, both in color and transparent; other sheets have just numbers, again in color and transparent. The orange sheet of stickers is arrows. You can use these on your journaling cards to point to the picture you are writing about, or any other creative way you can think of.
Becky thought of everything! This is inside the binder – it keeps the pages nice and sturdy and helps the book close easier.
I always keep my Becky Higgins boxes – as you can see I’m kind of an addict 🙂 The boxes themselves are super fantastic, too. The big ones in this picture hold all of the keepsakes from my daughter’s school days, from preschool through 3rd grade (she’s in 4th grade now). Not sure what I’ll use the small box for yet, but I’ll think of something!
So now that I’ve unpacked all my goodies, I organized it so it’s easy to grab and go. I got this cute divided fabric tray at Target for $5.99! Shut-up! Yep, $5.99. And it’s the perfect size for all the cards and stuff.

I’ve got a dedicated and organized space for my 2012 Project Life. I’m ready!
Come on 2012!
Happy New Year!
