Welcome to Project Life | Week Six.
One of the big things on my mind as I bring these elements together this week is how much I love that I’m looking at it as a “week” vs. making sure I get a photo on each and every day. Most of the time I am, but it’s not because I feel like I need to for this project, it’s because I love to take photos. I’ve printed more photos over the past six weeks that I have in a very long time.
There’s something about thinking about it as a week-at-a-glance vs. a daily record of our life this year that is really working for me.
In between pages:
I added a long journaler again this week.
The story came from this post. It’s long enough that it needed two journalers.
I formatted the journaling over two pages, printed both, and glued back to back. I printed the small photo of Simon sitting on the floor and adhered it to the top of the first journaler. The long journaler was slipped into a 8.5 inch x 11 inch page protector and I stitched along the side of the journaler to create a pocket. I then laid the page protector on my paper trimmer and cut off the excess.
If you’d like more information on working with the long journalers or other digital overlays, including how to add your text, go here for video tutorials using both Elements and Word.
Along with Simon’s self-report card (the yellow sheet) I included his third grade photos. I blurred it on purpose to protect the privacy of the other kids in his class.
This 6×4 journal card came from my Evidence Overlay Collection.
