Last weekend on Saturday I did my second Day In The Life™ documenting day for 2017. You can browse past Day In The Life™ projects here.
The lens through which I decided to tell my story this time was using -ing word cards from the Day In The Life™ Summer Journal Cards (a digital version is available here). The last few times I've used the lens of each hour of the day as a foundation/formula for my storytelling so I liked mixing it up a bit. This is a super manageable project and such a fun way to capture what a day looks like at any given point in time.
Here's a look at how it all turned out this time:
For this project I ended up using three 6x8 page protectors (this will go into my Project Life® album):
- 6x8 Page Protector 4A (three pockets)
- 6x8 Page Protector 3A (two pockets)
- 6x8 Page Protector 5A (12, 2x2 pockets)
When I first started on this project I anticipated using the cards for journaling but then decided to add photos to the cards instead and include one journaling card that incorporated a bunch of the details of the day. I love that sometimes it can be more the photos that are telling the stories. I printed my photos sized to 3x4 and then cropped them based on the space available on the cards. I used my sewing machine to stitch the photos onto the cards before slipping them into the pockets.
I also added a tab sticker from my Summer Release to a bunch of the photos.
In between the two main page protectors I included one of the 5A Page Protectors that I cut down to just one strip of pockets. Inside those pockets I added pieces from the Day In The Life™ Summer Die Cut Pack. It was a cool way to incorporate a few more "playful" embellishments vs. adding them directly to my photos.
You might also notice that I added Avery Index Tabs (back in stock) along the edges of each of my page protectors. Inside on the tabs I used either the Day Of The Week Roller Stamp or the Phrases Roller Stamp. Love how universal those stamps can be for all kinds of projects.
On the back I included the other -ing words plus a marketing card from the race Aaron and I did on Saturday afternoon.
Here's a look at the front and back of each of the page protectors laid out on my table:
And here's a look at how I'm going to add this to my Project Life® album - it will be an insert for last week once I get the rest of the week recorded:
I totally loved this simple approach. It's nice to have different ways to tackle the same project. I'll be doing Day In The Life™ one more time this year - most likely in November. Details to come as it gets closer.
