Week in the Life 2013 Album

I took all those photos I took during Week in the Life and put together an album I’m really happy with and honestly love how it turned out! I decided to make my album a mix of 12×12 layouts and pocketed pages. I used a couple different styles of Project Life pages, and I had never used them before. I’ve scrapped with pocketed pages before, but not quite like this. It was sort of overwhelming at first and took me a while to figure out exactly what I wanted to do and which pictures I wanted to use. In the end it worked out better for me to use a couple different styles and to have some days have more pages than others. It worried me at first, but it looks totally fine.

I cut out some phrases, the days of the week, and a card for each day of the week with my Silhouette SD. I did a layout for each day with an 8×10 photo, plus one more layout for each day of whatever photo combination I felt like. I printed most of my photos at Costco and then printed the rest at home with my Selphy.

I used a Project Life Dear Lizzy album I bought 60% off at Michaels.

I made a cover layout:

The small stickers at the top say “a week in the life.”

Here’s the rest of the album There are 41 pages total!








I also made an end page:

I used only a few different embellishments, and the papers weren’t all the same line, but I thought worked together quite well: Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 12×12 paperEveryday Eclectic paper by Allison KreftToday’s Story collection kit by Allison Kreft, and We R Memory Keepers Albums Made Easy Simply Happy Journaling Cards. The colors worked really well with the photos!

This was a great project but I am relieved to be done. I think our family will appreciate this a lot in the future, especially Serena some day. 🙂

Thanks for looking at all of this, and let me know if you have any questions!


So much rain!

When Serena was first born I thought I would never find time to scrapbook or do anything creative again, so it feels pretty amazing to do the week in a life project and make the book of all the photos. I actually completed the book on Friday! I’m excited to share it with you, but unfortunately it’s been raining here for three days and I can’t get very good pictures inside our house. Saturday afternoon I tried to take the book outside for some photos but didn’t get very far before it started raining too much for me to be able to stay outside. Hopefully I’ll be able to take some photos of it tomorrow! I would love for some sunshine anyway! I’ll be back soon with photos. 🙂
