When I shared my 2nd album end page, I got a few questions about why I break up the year and how come the albums don't hold an entire 52 weeks. I can't say FOR SURE that your album wouldn't hold a full 52, but I can say it would be stuffed. Because I like to add lots of inserts and sometimes thicker embellishments, my books get thick quickly. (And I love that!)
I could probably squeak by with just two albums (each holding six months of weekly spreads) but dividing the year into thirds is working out really well for me (and the binders) and is very likely what I will continue to do next year and the years to follow.
Just like the other two little pages, I am working with a lot of neutral and metallic papers and embellishments. I cut down my big Stendig wall calendar again to recover the album divider. I used photos from vacation that first week of September of the two of us. I really hope to continue taking many photos of US (and not just STUFF) these next few months.
That Neil Armstrong quote is a SUPER win. I love it for this album. I did the same repeating stamp this time around and once again added a little "update" text card. I went to town with my ampersand stamp on some kraft cardstock for the top right pocket.
And for fun, here are the three title pages side-by-side.
Clearly, they coordinate, but I like that they are not the exact same. It will be fun to play around with the Seafoam kit next year to make three title pages that work together in a similar way.
This project is just right up my alley. I am finding myself MORE excited to work on it than I was at the beginning of the year. That's absolute magic for a long-term project and so different from how I usually feel.
supplies / Paper Source label, Ormolu 2012 button, Recollections gold glitter paper, Elise Joy "&" stamp, SMASH date stamp, Design A page protectors (which are available in this variety pack), Clementine core kit, Bebas quote font. I use a Fiskars corner rounder (it's not amazing, but it's lasted the longest of any corner rounder I've ever had). I am using a Zig Millennium 0.1 pen and Recollections glossy marker throughout this album.
And speaking of Project Life : starting today International customers (in some countries) can PRE-ORDER the Seafoam kit, binder, paper & monthly dividers right here. (If you don't see the listings yet, keep an eye out, they are rolling out sometime today!) Pre-order is not currently an option for those inside the US but everything will be available on Amazon later this fall. I will absolutely keep you updated as I know more. Thanks so much for your excitement over this kit!
