Welcome to Project Life 2012 | Week Two.
Here’s a look at Week Two:
Lots and lots of photos this week.
Sometimes it leans heavier one way or the other (more or less photos) and I tend to just go with it. My Mom was here with us from Tuesday through yesterday helping me paint my office. It was a big job and I’m so thankful she was here to help.
I used my new Rituals & Routines word art set (“Tuesday Ritual”) on the bottom left photo. A Jillibean Soup Corrugated Heart is on top of some word art from my For The Love Of Love word art package. The little flag on the top photo is from Elles Studio.
For the insert this week I used a Design D page protector and cut off the outside pockets (I like when the inserts are smaller than the main pages for the week).
I loved doing the little 4×3 photos (tutorial available here) and including a couple vertical photos. I almost never take vertical shots (just not how I look through the lens) but since my Mom was here she shot a few with my camera. The photo of the crab I took with my iphone.
I really want to include a few more “peek through” elements like the one I did on my title page for 2012 throughout the year. The Silhouette works great for that – I was able to cut out this word element and stick it right in the pocket (download it for free at the beginning of this post).
The fact that you can’t read it from the back doesn’t bother me at all.
You might also notice that I placed two, 4×3 photos on one 4×6 canvas and added that into one of the vertical pockets vs. cutting them all out (and a good option for someone like me who takes more horizontal than vertical photos).
An Avery Self-Adhesive index tab along the edge of the insert. I don’t add these every time I include an insert, but a lot of the time.
Notes From Today tag is from Elles Studio.
