Week 11 and I'm back in the swing of things.
(click to enlarge & the images above will be [somewhat] clearer)
Simple spread this week - no inserts, lots of photos. It's nice to be home and able to document as things happen. We are halfway through March now, and that is usually when the novelty that comes with big new projects (or resolutions) starts to wear off. I am determined not to let that happen and relieved to find that I still really enjoy putting this album together. That's a really good thing.
Mostly repeat techniques this week and the a few new things.
Adding the digital text this way has become a stand-by for me (I'll try to get a video together next time I use it). It like it because when I take the time to type the text I add more detail. "C" letter sticker is Amy Tangerine for American Crafts. The orange and white paper is a 4x6 card from the Clementine kit that I wrote some personal journaling on and folded in half.
On Monday, when we BBQed for the first time it was a glorious day with an extra hour of sunlight - quite different from the windy, rainy weather of the past few days. But this is why I am glad I work on the album throughout the week - it did feel like summer that day and I was able to document it on a 3x4 card. Those letter stickers are also Amy Tangerine for AC. Originally they were cream colored, but I wanted them to stand out, so I painted them with some hot pink paint. It worked well to paint them with a foam brush while they were still on the sheet and then add them to the card after they were dry.
I was able to stick an extra photo in this week instead of the normal patterned paper that I put in the "date" pocket. Super simple.
More photos and some of the usual suspects (quote, arrow bullets) on the right side. I printed the text from Friday's post, folded it and clipped it to some October Afternoon paper (c/o Scrapbook Circle). Paul wrote our meals last week and when I took it off the fridge I added it to a pocket. Glad to have a bit of his handwriting in there.
Top pocket has a few instagram photos and some journaling about our adventures in backyard gardening. I hope the spreads the next few weeks show a lot more garden progress.
