Project Life CT 2013

It was an honor to be on the 2013 Project Life Creative Team. This year seemed to fly right on by. Though I skipped more than 10 weeks randomly throughout this year – my Australia & New Zealand trip is completely missing – I am grateful for this way of documenting. Kari posted this last batch of projects on Becky’s blog. Here’s one of my favorite spreads from this year.Amy Tan Project LifeI plan on continuing this style of memory keeping on a somewhat weekly basis for 2014. Some of these photos are from Persnickety Prints (they offer a Project Life size with optional rounded corners that fit perfectly into the pockets) and the others are printed at home from my Canon SELPHY CP900 Wireless Printer. Which actually reminds me, I need to order a few boxes of paper and ink.

    Always love your stuff, always will! You’ve always been an inspiration and I LOVE seeing your photos of baby Jack. (Also, I was *just* thinking of buying myself a Selphy for Christmas. Do you like yours?)

      Hi Jen! SOOOO thrilled that you are on the 2014 CT and I cannot wait to see how you rock your spreads.

      I LOVE my Selphy – mainly because it’s wireless and I can do all kinds of things while setting it up to print my images. I don’t think I could keep up with December Daily without it. And I don’t mind the fact that it’s not true 4×6 (it’s slightly shy), but if you do, maybe it’s not for you. But the price is right, barely takes up any room and is an awesome device!! Hope Santa brings one to you!

    Amy, I’ve been looking at the Selphy but saw some negative comments about the ink and how much is used by just turning it the printer on and off. We also just bought a regular Canon printer. Do you think that it is worth having a Selphy also?

      The Selphy uses a 4 color process to print photos. The ink isn’t in cartridges, it’s on a thin plastic sheet that rolls up into the cartridge. The color rolls onto the papers, so you don’t waste ink necessarily. I love my Selphy, and use it frequently, it does make for very nice prints, much nicer than my ink jet printer.
