I'm back to share week eleven in my 2017 Project Life album. This was another easy week, as I didn't have too many photos. Half of my photos came from Alyssa, so I'm glad she was out and about, and taking photos!
I usually start out with the idea of using two different pocket page protectors for each week - the one that holds (2) 4x6's and (5) 3x4's, and one that holds (9) 3x4's. I actually used two of the same design for this week, but that was mainly because the following week I needed a lot more 4x6" pockets.
Have I mentioned how much I love these Weekly Edition Journaling Cards from One Little Bird? Yes, I know I've mentioned it, but I'm going to mention it again. They make adding the weekly title cards to my spreads so easy.
I recently purchased the This Week 4x6" digital journal cards from Paislee Press, with the intention of using them for my 2016 Project Life album. I am still trying to figure out how I'm going to go back and finish the entire year's worth of spreads. And while I do have title cards in place for almost half the year, not a single one of those cards actually has the week or date on it. And I'm not sure how I would even want to add the weeks to those cards.
I think using the digital cards for the weeks will really help me in making some progress on that album. I used a lot of 4x4" in that album, so I really like that this other set of weekly title cards can easily be cropped to 4x4", as well as using the 4x6" version. I'll be adding the entire set of 52 cards to my next photo order, so I can work on switching them out in my album.
I think I did a lot better with my March journaling cards, remembering to leave room in the right places to add any little embellishments. Like for the card above, I made sure to leave room on the bottom, since I figured I would add a little washi tape there.
Since I used two of the same pocket page protector, this left me with spots for three 4x6's (in addition to the weekly title card). Since I only really had two photos that were 4x6", I combined a 3x4" photo and a 3x4" filler card into one of the 4x6" pockets.
While I'm mainly using the black and white digital journaling cards, I keep some of the other sets I have in mind if they work for the photos. I pulled the "get up and go" card from one of digital Story Kits from Ali Edwards, and also added some digital stitching down the middle.
It's a good thing I have a pretty large supply of enamel dots, hearts, stars, etc. I've been using them a lot on these pages, since they're super easy, and add very little bulk.
Just like on last week's spread, I pulled both of my filler card from my Simple Stories 3x4" card stash. I added a little washi tape to the top and bottom of the "snapshots" card, and added an enamel dot to the center of the camera.
I felt like this photo of Alyssa and her dad needed a little something, but wasn't sure what to add. I then remembered some photo overlays that I've had forever - I think they're from the original Project 365 kit, from way back in 2009. I simply added an overlay over the photo and slipped them both into the pocket.
