One of the things I highlighted in the Storytelling With Project Life® workshop was the idea of setting yourself up for success by creating cards in advance or having a specific theme you are documenting for a particular week. For Week Eight I created my own cards using my Days Of The Week Craft Die set.
I apologize in advance that we are currently sold out of the Days Of The Week Craft Die set. At the time I set this week up we still had them in stock. If you are interested in purchasing them feel free to click the Notify Me button and we'll send you an email when they are back in stock. Once they are back in stock I'll share a video tutorial with you on how I used an Evolution die-cut machine to create these 3x4 journal cards.
Here's a look at Week Eight:
I love having something set up in advance, a plan of sorts.
In this case the plan was simply that I created homes to hold my daily stories using the Days Of The Week Craft Dies - when you start with that it's pretty darn easy to fill in those spots.
And yeah, I also love repetition.
Here's a closer look:
I don't always take a photo every single day. Sometimes I include photos from the same day or same event next to each other in the Design A pockets - I especially love it when it can be something like these two photos that tells stories about each one of my kids and they can be placed in pockets right next to each other.
I'm loving the chance to use my new Rolling Time Stamp (included with the Day In The Life™ kit).
I stamped "story" from my Stories Of Life stamp set right onto the "saturday" card. Right now that stamp set is available to add to your Week In The Life™ box through March 31st and receive free domestic shipping or $10 international shipping for anything you add to your box from the WITL preorder page.
Thursday's journaling includes some "-ing" prompt words: reading, listening, watching, cooking, and buying. Such a simple way to document a few things that are real about right now.
For Friday I added a few tags from a little shopping trip I took.
As you might have seen last week, I took a lot of photos of my shoes this past month. I loved this one of my shoes + the kids shoes at the park.
