Project Life | Week Two

Here's a look at our Project Life | Week Two.

Here's the left side:

And the right side:

The second half of the week includes both what I was doing (in Vegas) and what was happening here at home.

In-between the left and the right side I included a couple things this week:

Last week I showed you a sneak peek at the program insert I included.

In addition to that I took the layout I created last week and placed it inside an 8.5x11 page protector. Depending on how many layouts I make over the course of this year I might just make this into two albums (first half 2011 and second half 2011). I love the idea that this would include layouts and the stuff of life within the divided page protectors on a weekly basis.

On the back of the layout is our flight itinerary to Vegas and a card I received while I was there.

Here's a couple close-ups:

I took the photo and journaling from this post and inserted them into the album. I can see doing that at different times throughout the year. I'm thinking that these long journalers that I used in Week In The Life last year would be great for longer journaling that you want to add to your album.

I think I might use one of those for the post I did last Monday about going to the capitol.

For this 4x6 I created a new canvas in Photoshop at 300dpi. I filled the background with grey using the paint bucket tool. I copied my text from my blog post and pasted it onto the 4x6 canvas and adjusted the font, type size and made the color white. I added a hand-drawn "on Tuesday" title.

Last week Simon told me when he gets older he'd like to have a wife. He'd also like to have a boy named Greg and a daughter named Molly.

Project Life is a product created by Becky Higgins. It can be anything you want it to be. The album kit is available for purchase through Amazon (it's currently sold out but should be back in stock soon). If you live outside the US check Becky's site for more information on sources.

    Thanks for sharing, Ali! So grateful that you post your projects as you go along because you truly are an inspiration to all of us.

    This is my first year doing Project Life and I am LOVING it so far! I have a similiar approach as you with the project. Last week, for instance, I only included 3 photos across a 2-page spread and I loved what came out of it. I think too many people get so wrapped up in taking a photo a day that the project loses value and meaning. For me, a lot of cool things happened last week that I didn't have a photo to correspond with my story- and that's totally okay; for instance, the Packers are in the Superbowl (yayy!!), the Australian Open started; my husband and I booked trips to Costa Rica and Vegas. These things added up are what made my week what it was- so I am okay with journaling about those things or clipping out a newspaper headline because that was what had meaning to me last week.

    Ali, I'm trying to do the journaling thingy you did here with creating the canvas, filling and then copying the note but what next? How did you print it?

    How do you get the white text to print on the grey paper like the "On Tuesday" photo?
