project life 2013 : week 13

April 19, 2013

This is from the week of March 25-31. It includes Easter and my day in the life record, so even though it only encompasses one week, it is very full. That’s how it goes!



On the left side I tried to include all the more routine parts of our week.




Then there is the day in the life insert. I really like this way of documenting this once-a-month project I’m doing, and I think I’ll keep it the same each time. I am using these page protectors which are perfect for iPhone photos, although they are smaller than 3×4 so I had to cut each photo down. Next time I will remember that and add a border to the photos before printing so I don’t cut off any part of it. The top left pocket will be for the date – that stamp was a special edition from Studio Calico – and I will probably change up the title label from time to time.


Then it’s just photos.


If I need to fill up a spot I will do so with filler cards like this one at the end. I thought about adding journaling to the photos themselves, but instead I am choosing just to include my worksheet in full. It gives the best overview anyway and I think it will be fun to go back and read.





Now on to the right side of the spread. The top two thirds of it are all photos and journaling from Easter.



Then the bottom (along with a couple photos on the left page) is devoted to our trip to the antique festival.


This is a really blurry close up picture, but I wanted to show you what I did since I had sooo many vertical pictures this week and hardly any horizontal. For three of the 4×6 pockets I used washi tape to put together two photos that went with each other. It works, but is not my favorite thing to do so much because I think it looks busy. Oh well – I will work on taking more horizontal photos!

    From Sarah:

    I had a lot of photos from Easter week as well! I just realized I think that’s the last layout I’ve done… and now April is more than half over! Oops! Well, I guess that happens. I like your solution of putting two smaller vertical photos in the horizontal photo slot. I’ve also done that with a journaling card on one side, and taped them in the back.
