This week I added in one 8.5 inch x 11 inch page protector.

I didn't feel like doing any cutting and stitching so inside the page protector I slipped the cute certificate from the hair-cut place, a little envelope with Anna's hair, the story of her first hair-cut printed on a long journaler, and a little photo of her adhered to the top of the long journaler (I just moved my text down to make room - look for a video tutorial on working with these overlays to be posted later this week).

I attached the little hair envelope to the certificate with one of Tim's Trinket Pins.

On the other side of the page protector I included the program from an event Chris and I attended on Saturday night.

Close up of page two:

This week I asked Chris if he'd write a bit on a card.

It was his first week back at the Capitol and there's usually a couple weeks of transition for him as he gets back in the swing of the workload and time. Here's what he wrote:

Our babysitter is also great at getting in on the documentation. Here's a card she inserted this past week:

I also included a bit of handwriting from Simon in the form of a little yellow sticky note:

Anna decided to draw on Simon's little note too.

Something new I added this week is a 4 inch x 6 inch journal card. Some days/weeks I want to add a bit more writing that's a bit longer than a small journal card and less than a long journaler.

This new set of 4 x 6 journalers will be available at Designer Digitals on Thursday (the first day of the quarterly sale). The set includes PNG files and a PDF file for easy printing. Days of the week plus a few other sentiment journal blocks are included.


This week I also wanted to share some work from Nicole. She made her own version of Project Life using many of my digital products from Designer Digitals.

I love how she used the 365 overlays as journal blocks. She opens the PNG files in Word, inserts a text box and adds her journaling, and prints.

I also received some cool examples via email from Angie who is printing out my Title + Journal Photo Overlays Vol.2 for her Project Life album:

Thanks to Nicole and Angie for sharing their work!
