This was election week. I went with a red (mostly) and blue theme. 🙂
I added an insert because I had several instagram photos this week and I wanted to include them all. I have the hardest time leaving out pictures, because they usually tell different stories, they aren’t just the same shot in many copies, and using inserts is ideal for me.
Here’s what the spread looks like once you turn the insert.
On the left page I went with two full pocket pages with some added journaling.
I used the Design C photo pockets for the right page. And here are some detailed shots.
I used the 6×6 paper pad from the Basic Grey Fact&Fiction line from JoAnn’s – I love this line! The alpha stickers are by October Afternoon. I love little alpha stickers, they are just perfect to title my Project Life pages!
Two instagram photos and a screenshot from my Dancing with the Stars votes.
I used the Studio Calico Stepping Stone alpha inked with Colorbox pigment ink to title this card, and took a screenshot of the election results from a news website.
I took a picture of the die cuts in the Fact & Fiction line. So cute!! I cut out the “happy” with my Silhouette, and colored it with a marker.
I used a little tag by Elle’s Studio and a piece of a grid card to add journaling to this photo.
I had plenty of space on this photo, so I journaled straight onto it with an American Crafts pen.
The 4″x4″ of the Design I insert are perfect for an instagram photo + some journaling. 🙂 Instagram has certainly changed the way I document my everyday!
I cut out the red and white pinked circle with the Silhouette.
The red heart was cut out of vellum with my Silhouette, and I colored it with a red marker.
This wasn’t an instagram photo, but I cropped it square anyway. 😉
I rarely use black&white pictures, but I do love the look – I just have to remind myself to try it out more often!
I wore a pretty outfit to a concert but DH didn’t want to take a picture of me, so I took this shoeless self shot to at least have something to remember it by.
And this is all for Week 46! 🙂 My mom has been here for the past 10 days, so I’m a bit behind: Week 47 is halfway done, and as soon as my mom leaves 🙁 I will get back to working on it. And December is starting soon – I can’t wait to put some Christmas goodies to use in my album! 😉
