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!

Monday:

Tuesday:

Wednesday:

Thursday:

Friday:

Saturday:

Sunday:

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!

  1. This looks really nice – and you gave me some fun ideas for pocket pages. I generally do an annual album where I scrapbook the major events (vacations, trips, Christmas, etc) but just stick the rest of the pictures into traditional pocket pages. It keeps me from getting too far behind, but sometimes I get a bit bored with it. I’m going to take some inspiration from you, I think, and spice things up a bit.

    • Thanks Dana and glad you found some inspiration! I didn’t even know you scrapbooked. That’s great you do an annual album. They have so many different options for pocketed pages now because of the Project Life craze! They can be convenient and other times hard to use. I guess I need to be in the right mood. 🙂
