Project Life® 2013 | Week Thirty-One + Thirty-Two


Welcome to Project Life® 2013 | Week Thirty-One and Week Thirty-Two (July 22 - July 28).

There are so many different ways to tackle documenting a longer vacation.

For longer trips I usually like to create a small album (8x8 or 6x8) depending on the adventure, the number of photos, etc. That said, I actually have about four of these that need to be done from my last few international trips.

Yep. Hello piles of stuff.

Sometimes I wonder if just printing out highlights from the trip and adding them to Project Life would feel better than the albums in the pile that I plan/hope/intend to get to down the road. One of these days I need to try that.

For Project Life during our trip to Paris a few weeks back I'm choosing to simply add two 12x12 photos cut to fit the pockets to cover the two weeks we were away. I did the same thing for my trip to Ireland last year - it's a good option for me when I'm planning to put together a smaller album from the trip.


My process is simple:

1. Print 12x12 photo. I do this at home using an Epson R2000 and Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper (13x19 inches).

2. Cut in half vertically to create 2, 6x12 images.

3. Take each half and cut into 3, 4x6 images.

4. Take the middle 4x6 image and cut into 2, 3x4 images (sometimes I have to make these a little less than 3 inches wide).


I want to do this same thing with an enlarged photo at the end and beginning pages of my second and third albums.

Here's what it looks like in the album:


We were actually gone for two weeks but rather than including 4 enlargements (or two spreads) I decided to just go with one spread.



I added just two small digital brushes onto the upper left 4x6 part of the photo.

Paris is from my International Cities set and the "twenty thirteen" box can be found in the Twenty Thirteen set.


These two pages make me pretty happy.
