I was NOT super active camera wise last week. Really only Wednesday, did I make a major effort to take a bunch of photos. But that's the beauty of my plan to only include seven photos a day. My favorites got in and I threw the pressure out the window. Below are the full pages.
I printed and saved and documented throughout the week and for that I am grateful. I loved the baseball card pocket pages. LOVED them. Perfect size for little snapshots. Will be remembering that for next year. Love all the color. Love the square corners. Love the result of each page and each spread.
The only text other than some bits and pieces on the photos was the "day in the life" journaling I blogged last week. I printed it on a piece of 5x11 paper and trimmed an 8.5x11 page protector down to fit it. I didn't have enough text to fill both sides of the page so I slipped a piece of American Crafts paper on the back.
Instead of using photos from this week as bookends for "week in the life," I picked ones from our photoshoot in mid-April.
One was cropped up from a big photo and the other side holds just 4x6 and 3x4 snap shots. Good enough. I am planning on making some sort of full album of just those photos, but I also wanted some of my favorites in this Project Life album. I am happy with the result.
Some of the pockets got a business card or an embellishment to talk more about the photo.
Others days were kept pretty simple - just photos.
This week in the life section is actually THE END of volume one of my Project Life album. I decided to break the year into three albums (Jan-Apr, May-Aug & Sep-Dec). Size wise, it's going to work out just about right, I think. To make things official, I stuck an envelope page into the back of the album (into it went a few letters from P I hadn't put anywhere else and our anniversary cards).
I also stamped & stickered a label for the spine.
I am still working on the end page of this first 2012 album (it's SO much harder than a title page!) but I'll share that when I'm done as well as my title page for 2012, volume II.
