Wrapping up my Day In The Life™ projects for 2017 with this fun take focusing on counting things throughout the day.
Check out my previous Day In The Life™ projects from this past year here: June 2017 and August 2017. I have loved including these projects into my Project Life® album throughout the year and plan to continue doing that next year.
One of the things that I really have been trying to do when designing products is give you a jumping off point for telling stories - intentional memory keeping products are my goal. I thought this angle was a really fun and different take on documenting a day in our lives (vs. trying to capture everything or doing an hourly photo). You'll see below that I didn't use all the cards included in the kit - I just used the ones that made sense or were relevant to my actual day. You might have used different cards or more cards or less cards and you might have taken more photos - all good any way you choose to do it.
This project is such a great reminder that all the stories we tell and the projects we embark on don't have to be complicated.
I decided to focus less on the photos this time and just make sure that I counted some of the things over the course of my day. This worked out just right since I ended up working for 10 hours on this day!
For my story this time I worked with 6x8 page protectors including the full page 6x8 pocket and the 4-pocket (3x4) page protector. I cut the first 4-pocket page protector in half after counting up the number of cards I planned to include in my story and I liked the way it looked alongside my enlarged photo.
The Day In The Life™ Fall 2017 Mini Kit includes the cards and stamp and word/phrase strips I used in my project. The number stamps in the kit are the perfect size to respond to the prompts on the cards. I used Black Butte Crafters Ink for stamping my numbers on my cards.
I took four photos for this day - I told you I took a lot less than normal! Because of that I decided to enlarge two of them and slipped those two into the one pocket 6x8 page protector. On the top of the photo of me (which is completely representative of my entire day - coffee and candy and all day at my desk - I added a plastic circle from the Summer Embellishment Variety Pack, a circle hashtag/number sticker, and a circle stamp from the Best Story Stamp™.
I added the two of the perforated words/phrases inside the Avery Index Tab.
My second enlarged photo shows my Get To Work Book™ (new planners are coming to the shop this week for 2018) and I added one of the perforated strips on top.
So simple and easy. Just count, stamp and write.
Here's a look at this project inside my Project Life® album:
Enjoy your week and thanks so much for playing along this year! Let's tell more stories again together next year.
