It’s time to share week 2 of my Project Life album! The process was very smooth for me this week as well. I worked on the spread on Wednesday night – figured out the design and printed out the first few bits. Then during the weekend I printed out the rest of the stuff. I didn’t finish on Sunday though (still had a couple of photos to print out), but I had my photos picked and edited, and was just waiting to have a couple of photos for this week ready to print out (I have a weird mania of not wasting paper 😉 ).
While I love how my spread turned out this week, I really hate the pictures I took of it – I didn’t have any natural light available, and this is the best I could get. It is so frustrating! Here is a look at the individual pages:
Like last week, the design+color scheme for the whole spread was derived from a card I made this past week. (actually, this time around I made the card after designing the PL spread) Great way to optimize my time! This week I was able to incorporate more of the Clementine kit: both of the blue journaling cards on the left page are from the kit, as well as the blue one at the top right on the right page.
I printed out the date with the date stamp as usual, but I used a pink Tim Holtz distress ink, to match the color scheme of the page. I like how it turned out! Here is a little scene I love:
This week I even included 2 inserts (just regular 8.5″x11″ protectors). I found a fun printable with a few questions about the past year and hopes for the new year (I pinned it here if you’re interested), and I thought it would be a cool thing to include in the album. It’s supposed to be for kids – there’s also an adult version, but I figured I had better chances of having DH fill in the kid version, and I was right! I didn’t even have to insist to have him fill it in! So the first protector has his questionnaire on the front and mine on the back. The second protector has an admission letter I received and on the back a character sheet.
Yikes, I cringe at how bad these pictures are. I hope to have better luck next week with natural light!
