New Day In The Life™ Kit Now Available + Mark Your Calendar

Yesterday I launched my second Day In The Life™ mini kit for 2016. This year I'm doing Day In The Life™ - a one-day documentary project to capture your life right now - three times spread out throughout the year. It's a simple fun project that spreads across different seasons. 

The next day of documentation (if you'd like to play along at the same time) is scheduled for Saturday, July 30th. Switching it up to a weekend should be fun. There's no class you need to sign up for as I'll be sharing my words and photos and my process for bringing them together using the kit below here on my blog. 

Here's a look at what's included in this kit this time (the last kit did sell out earlier this year so I recommend jumping in on this one if you have an interest in playing along):

The simple, fun kit I'll be using includes 24, 3x4 journal cards (one for each hour of the day). This time I'm planning to write down and photograph what I'm doing each hour of the day I'm awake - it's a fun twist on capturing a day with a little more structure. It's simple and easy to set an alarm on my phone to remind and prompt me each hour of the day - simply capturing whatever is happening at that particular point in the day. My initial thought is that I'll carry the cards with me and just use a pen to write down what's happening at the time the alarm goes off. To finish off the project all I'll have to do is print photos and add my embellishments to my photos and slip them into pockets. To keep things simple I'll be adding my day into my current Project Life® album. 

In addition to the cards the kit also includes circle epoxy stickers with everyday life icons, word/phrase stickers, and themed speech bubbles to help you tell your story. 

Here's a video overview of the new kit: 

I hope you'll join me in documenting your own day next month. Kits are available now and ready to ship!

    Love this mini kit and the idea of doing DITL a few times a year!

    This is a great little kit! The timing is perfect for us - we'll be 3 weeks into adding a 3rd puppy to our family and I think it'll be fun to document how she mixes up our schedule. Looking forward to this DITL project!

    Will there be a digital kit? I'm planning to buy a physical kit, but I can see myself doing this more than once. It would be awesome to buy a digital version as well.

    I ordered my kit today. I have a couple of questions, however..... How do you plan to add photos? What type and number of page protectors will you use? I can't quite figure it out as I don't have protectors of that configuration. Thanks! (I like to think about how I will complete something before I start it.)

      Jumping in with my own thoughts (open that is ok)! I think I will end up laying this out just like a regular Project Life page. Journaling on the 3x4 time cards Ali has in her kit, and then taking my photos all 4x6 horizontal and adding embellishments directly to the photos. I already have the Becky Higgins Design A Project Life pages, which will work perfectly for this!

      I'm planning to use Design F page protectors - similar to what I did for this project: http://aliedwards.com/2016/03/let-s-do-this-pocket-storytelling. One photo per hour to go with one card per hour.

    I love this kit!! And the fact that it's a Saturday this time!! I'll be two and a half weeks post major surgery so not up to doing much and not driving, but I know that I'll still be getting out and about on the weekends with the family, It's also a birthday weekend in our family so there may be celebrations and time spent with my parents & siblings, which is always fun to include in these sorts of projects. So many stories that will come out from this day already!!

    Loved the word phrase stickers in the WITL kit too!! Is there any chance Ali that you might look at doing some word phrase stickers in different colours that might be used for everyday story telling to compliment the ones you bring out in these kits?

      We are talking about adding some word/phrase stickers to my general shop offerings :).

    I ordered my kit yesterday but just got around to seeing the video today. I love the back of the 3x4 cards B&W patterns. Will you be introducing a digital kit like the last DITL kit? I'm sure I'll be using the front of the cards with the time so that only will leave me with some of the patterns to use and by the look of them (in the video) I would love to have them all so I definitely buy the digital kit too. Thanks so much. Love love love your story telling.

    Just got my kit today. It's simple, but will be very effective. I think you should make the speech bubbles an permanent product offering! They are great.
