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 paper, Everyday Eclectic paper by Allison Kreft, Today’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!
