Here we go with week 2 of our project life album!
Up to here it has been easy keeping up. This week I actually had a lot to include and almost had another insert. I managed to work it out without the insert, which Is my goal for the year. I don’t want the album filling up too fast and needing three volumes for the day to day of this year. I know I will have a full album of just our personal photos and ephemera from our wedding and honeymoon in Italy and that will be something to factor in for albums to look at for one year. (one awesome year)
Here is the whole spread:
This was a fun week! A new semester at USF, capturing the sweet relationship of a man and his little girl, a random act of kindness, Beauty and the Beast in 3D with the girl I grew up with, and purging/selling at a yard sale.
I love that I was able to include the parking permit that is on Nick’s car for the semester. I love even more that he wrote about starting a new semester.
The moustache card I made and may be offering it as a freebie download in the near future. Also, those who are familiar with Project Life products can tell that I am loving the cobalt edition cards very very much. : )
I took a close up photo of my weekly calendar spots so you could see it a little better. I made the calendar in Photoshop so I could have it start from Monday to Sunday, then added a grid background and Ali Edwards days + months digital brushes. I just printed it out on copy paper then cut and stapled it to Kraft Cardstock. I did 6 months in advance so they are ready to go each week! I really do love being able to see on a calendar which week’s story is being told. Date ranges and “week 25″ does nothing for me in this case.
This week I added an extra photo to that calendar card that I didnt have room for and I love how it fits perfectly there in its little home. I just stuck it on with Washi tape so it is easily removable if we need to borrow it for something else. (my mentality on all of my photos in this project, I try not to adhere any of them down so that they may be removed.)
That adorable little heart is a a foam cut out and is adhered on top of the page protector. I LOVE the layered texture and again, Im not in the business of making any alterations to our photographs. I definitely think this is something I will continue doing throughout our book. I am just tickled by the fact that you can run your finger over it and feel the love. ha! yes I am aware that I am a dork.
I was looking forward to Friday and Saturday and that is basically the whole right side (below). This is where including a photo a day doesnt always work, I would have needed that insert I was talking about and the stories can be told another time since they were daily happenings.
The 4×6 Beauty and the beast card was given to us when we purchased our ticket. It is a “commemorative lithograph.” I think it really was just an excuse to advertise to us but I don’t care, I was as giddy as a 10 year old when I saw it and knew that I had the perfect place to keep it safe! Project life for the win.
Stay tuned for week 3…Ill try to get that up by the end of this week.
I am absolutely LOVING all of your comments! Make sure to say hi and let me know how you are doing on your Project life or ask me any questions you have. I’ve been doing pretty good at responding so ask away!
I’m linking up with The Mom Creative and her Project Life Tuesday. If you are looking for more inspiration check out the people who link up their project life pages with her there. Its really fun to see how other people are using project life and it really helps me to see the basic ones to remind myself to keep it simple.
