It feels so good to have a completed album! Since I am a digi girl, I don't have any physical product of my Project Life albums yet. So doing one week as a hybrid project and having it all done feels awesome! I wanted to do a video, but realized quickly that it is impossible to do with a toddler in the house.
I am using an 8.5x11 WRMK vanilla leather binder. These are my favorite.
I liked this photo as the mirror and hooks by our back door are a kind of hub in our home. Having Ian's little hand reaching up is perfect since he is always getting into things. The font here is from Karla Dudley - Stauesque
I am using the Day of the Week banners from Ali Edwards for my daily title pages and I used some transparencies I found at the thrift store to make the overlays. Monday and Wednesday's overlays are AE Hello Life 12x12 text overlays
I probably went a bit photo heavy as this was my first try and I wanted to include everything. I used 9 pocket baseball card pages and had to rework some cards to fit the odd size. I also cut a few down to 3 pockets to fit in extras.
The calendar card at the top left is from my printable wood veneer calendars at my Etsy shop. I have Sun-Sat 2013 & 14 and Mon-Sun for 2014 up.
I did a list for each day using the cards from Rukristin who's Currently cards I love! I also did a list of 5 things I am thankful for each day.
I used many pieces from Paislee Press and One Little Bird that can be found at the-lilypad.com, Ali Edwards at designerdigitals.com, and Karla Dudley at pixelsandcompany.com.
The card at the bottom left was one I used many times an is a freebie from Cathy Zielske. She has the best templates! Check out her blog and her stuff at Designer Digitals.
I did Currently cards of each of us on different days of the week with the Rukristin cards. And I made 8.5x11 pages with even more photos from our days. I also added the QR codes when I had some. I use Youtube and http://www.free-qr-code.net/ to make my codes.
This overlay I made from a paper in a The Weekender from Paislee Press and Weekdays Vol 1 from Karla Dudley
I also did a playlist for each of us using a freebie from Deena Rutter seen here at the bottom left.
Tuesday was photo heavy since Mr. G came home sick Monday and I for some reason thought I needed to play catch up. So I added an entire extra 9 pocket page.
Two of my favorite photos were from Wednesday. The top right is our fat cat Moo sitting with me on my chair while I work. He likes to keep me warm. And the bottom right was Ian and I playing at bedtime. He loves to burrow in the sheets of our bed right now and we do this almost every night.
I seriously don't know how Ian stood his broom up and it stayed that way, but I of course had to snap a photo. I made this camera overlay from the Diptych kit from Paislee Press.
I made this overlay with the brushes from Karla Dudley's Damselle collection (love this one!)
This overlay I used Karla's Hello Love kit brushes
My last page.
I put my notes in page protectors at the back of the album so we can go back and read them later.
