Two weeks into the the Project Life album and I'm excited to share my pages today.
I've decided to use the upper left pocket of the album each week to mark the date for the week. This will allow some continuity each week without using matching or coordinating products throughout the album.
I've been mostly focusing on the filling my pages with photos and adding little bits of journaling. This week I'm letting the photos tell the stories. In some future weeks, I may want to focus more on journaling.
In addition to photos, I also included the cover of a take out menu plus some photo booth photos mounted to a card about birthday parties at Smeeks. I didn't want to include the birthday party info, but I did like the title and the little elf guy, so I let that peek out from under the photos.
A few Elle's Studio tags and Scrapbook Circle printables were prefect for sticking to photos and doing bits of journaling. I like having small tags that I can quickly grab and fit on the photos.
I also used an American Crafts Slick Writer to journal directly onto a couple of the photos. This works great on photos with some white space.
Both this week and last week I used one of the smaller journaling cards to list out a few highlights from the week. These things don't necessarily have a photo, but they are a few fun facts about the week.
I'm determined to keep this project simple without many embellishments so that I can stay motivated and excited about the project.
