This was the scene late last week after my photos arrived in the mail from scrapbookpictures.com.
It’s always so cool to have photos in hand. I really like how the 8.5×11 photo collage pages turned out and I decided not to cut them out and adhere them to cardstock. Originally I thought I would do that so that the papers “matched” but when it came down to it that was going to take me a whole lot longer and I just didn’t want to spend the time doing that when it looked perfectly fine as it was. All I ended up doing was adhering the pattern paper strips and the tabs and calling it good for this portion of the album.
If you are paying really close attention you might notice that the long strip and the short strip of pattern paper are switched (long first vs. short piece first) in comparison with the layered template package. I happened to just dive right in adhering the strips and this is what I ended up with.
Here’s a look at each of the photo pages (still working on the baseball card page protectors):
Supplies used can be found in this post.
Tomorrow I hope to have the whole album complete including a cover page, the baseball card page protector photos and the rest of my journaling.
Thank you to those of you who have been emailing me images of your project. I’m looking forward to showing other examples later this week. Feel free to send me some samples of your album at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put Week In The Life Example in the subject line.
