The Design:Last year I used the standard rounded corner templates by Becky Higgins and a grey background paper on all my layouts. This year I've decided to keep my photos squared off and to use a white background. This is a little bit more work to start with as I'm making my own templates, but once I've got a mix of templates to accommodate different combinations of photos putting the pages together will be quick.
Text and Titles:
Once again I'm keeping my choices to a minimum. For most of my text and titles I will use variations on Helvitica which comes standard with PSE in a variety of weights and styles. I will also use Aovel Sans Rounded which is similar to Rounded Helvitica which did not come with PSE. For a little whimsy I'll include some Dooodelista and that is pretty much it for fonts.
I won a voucher at TLP in their January challenges and picked up Date me all Year Round, a set of vellum date tabs by Pink Reptile Design.
Each month I'll pick a colour scheme. In February I chose the colours in Oh Dearie by Paislee Press and ran quickly through my digital stash to pick out some other papers in this colour scheme and dropped them in a folder in iphoto for quick access.
2013 Calendar Journalling Cards by Paislee Press. I've altered these slightly and am using them on the first page of each month.
Journalling cards - I have a collection of these that I can make use of.
