I think this is probably my most favorite way to approach Day In The Life™.
Here are some of the things I loved about the project this time around:
I loved that the documentation day for this one happened right as we were transitioning out of school and into summer.
I loved using the timer on my phone to capture one story and one photo each hour. It totally does not need to be more than that - such an easy, simple way to give yourself direction.
I loved that I simply copied and pasted my text from the journaling I had done on Instagram onto the digital version of the Day In The Life™ Mini Kit No. 4 journal cards. I could have just as easily re-written them by hand on the cards from the physical kit but I just felt like printing them this time instead (love being able to mix it up).
I loved that when I went to print I only had the small number of photos I took to choose from (one each hour) - no extras to make choosing any more complicated than it needed to be. It took me about 15-20 minutes to edit/crop and then print my photos using my Epson PictureMate PM400.
I loved going really simple with my embellishing including using the roller stamp from the kit as a title for each card and then stickers from the Word Phrase Sticker Bundle and the WITL Phrase Sticker Bundle.
And I loved putting the completed pages right into my Project Life® album using Design F Page Protectors. I cut the second Design F page protector in half (using my trimmer) and then used a Fuse Tool to turn the 4x6 pocket into two, 3x4 pockets.
Here's a look at the completed project that is spread over one and a half pages:
The YAY is from the Fun Story Kit™. I used a star pattern silkscreen and Cascade AED Acrylic Paint to create the pattern on top. Story Kit™ subscribers can check out the how-to for this in the Fun classroom. I super love that the word is correct when we view it from both the front and the back. So cool.
On each card I used the rolling stamp to add a "title" -ing word or "currently" or "around here" and then simply added a couple stickers to some of the photos.
I used an older Week In The Life™ stamp set that included the small circle to designate whether it was AM or PM.
