Project Life® 2017 | Week Twenty-Two
This week in Project Life® I focused on the story of our first Story Camp event. You can read the main journaling I included in my blog post here.
To tell the story of that special event + some of the getting ready for it I used some of the products from my new Summer Release.
Here's a look at my Week 22:
For a week like this one when I knew I was going to fill a majority of my pockets with photos I often include an insert for my words. This time I went with a 6x8 sized insert and used one of these page protectors.
My journaling is copied and pasted from my blog post (I was able to write it closer to the event and then include it in my album when I was ready to tackle that specific point in time). "Details" from my Day Of The Week Roller Stamp is stamped onto a piece of paper and slipped inside and Avery Index Tab (back in stock).
The "I want to remember" chipboard piece is from the new Chipboard Bundle:
And here's a look at the spread and the back of the insert:
I so love that the 6x8 sized page protectors can fit right into my 12x12 albums.
The stickers I used in this spread include stickers from the Summer Sticker Variety Pack (label stickers, tab stickers, etc). The "start where you are" card is included in the Brave New Day Journal Card Set.
My title card was the marketing card from the Fun Story Kit™.
On the right side of the spread I mainly included photos from the day and the day after. I also included positive messages to myself as we went into the event (all kinds of nerves and excitement).
Love those cards from the Brave New Day Journal Card Set. Those sets includes two of each card so you can use all the designs.

Wow - your note about using the 6x8 insert for your journaling because the pockets were filled with photos was a lightbulb moment for me. And I like the little pep talks too. :) Thanks for sharing your process, Ali!! I would so love to take another in-person class with you - maybe some day, eh?! :)

Would love to take your Story Camp one of these days....want to hold it at The Salishan Lodge??!!
I'll provide a wine evening up at our home...maybe even a golf tournament at close??!!
Anyway....I have a tech question. As a now official empty nester, all 4 kiddos now in college or graduated from college and working is So. Cali, all I get from them is photo posts on Instagram. A Mom takes what she can get....you'll be there someday. I screen shoot the photos of theirs that I want, and print them on my Epson PictureMate 400. BUT I get all the Instagram blurbs in the shot. It looks like an Instagram photo shoot in my Project Life. I ask them to just send me a "photo," but it never happens....thankful to get their Instagrams...and texts....again you'll be there someday. How do I print an Instagram photo so it looks like just a photo? Possible? BTW, so proud of Simon. Can't wait to hear how Boy Scout camp went for him. He "entered the arena and dared greatly."
This isn't Ali but that lodge sounds great! I thought about your IG photos. Have you tried cropping the pic from the screen shot- this way you have the photo part you want. You can do it from the edit feature inside the photos app. Just a thought- good luck!
Yes, you can just crop it down to edit the Instagram caption out. I often use the Project Life App to resize and crop photos...you can print it then knowing exactly what your photo will look like.
Yes, screen shots are how I save other peoples photos on Instagram. I even tried on my computer and it won't let you save them. I agree with the Project Life App! I use it to crop 4x6 photos, but if I want it a 4x4 I use the Pic Stitch app.
