Week in the Life 2017 | Monday


Finally ready to share my Week in the Life album. It's been a long time since my last post, but I'm trying to get back into the rhythm of blogging more often and on some sort of schedule. Aiming for at least once a week once I get through my small backlog of projects.

I bought the Week in the Life kit from Ali Edwards with the grey stripe album. .At this time she still has some in the shop. I made my title page using a digital card from the Lens kit aand some pieces from my stash.


On the inside of the cover I typed some facts onto one of the 3x4 cards in the kit and taped it down. I stamped the dates and used little pre-cut washi strips.


I love this title page. It was a digital 4x6 card but I resized it to fit 6x8 and turned it so the flower was at the bottom. I added a bunch of cirlcle bits and phrase strips.


I have a TON of things with the days of the weeks on them, and I don't make sure I have photos from each day of the week when I do Project Life, so I used a bunch in this album. I had these little embossed labels from a super old Studio Calico kit. I trimmed the down a little to fit in 2-inch Avery Index tabs and stuck them at the start of each day.


A rubber embellishment from the Craft Story kit, a phrase sticker from last year's Week in the Life kit, some chipboard stars.


I also added this little cluster of label stickers with the date along edge. Those little stars are possibly my favourite.


I love saving one of the branding stickers from the packaging, and working it into my project. I added another rubber embellishment, this time I think from the Bond Story Kit, another phrase strip from last year's Week in the Life kit and more little chipboard stars.


MONDAY; possibly my favourite beginning page. I just love that photo of my desk. This is how each day starts in the album. I added the chipboard circles from last year's kit to one of my 3x4 photos on each day.


I added another wood veneer to the top of my 3x8 journaling for the day and an index tab along the edge.


I put the plastic day of the week die cut over one 4x6 photo that was chosen because it wasn't too busy and I'd still recognize what it was despite the giant letters overlayed on it.


I ended each day with these awesome journal prompt pages from the beautiful Brandi Kincaid. I did a mixture of photos and words to capture the details of each prompt.
