Welcome to Project Life® 2018 | Week Two.
Repetition for the win again this week! My repetitive element this week are the Story Cards that are an Add On option for Story Kit™ Subscribers. I love cutting them up and using pieces of them on my photos to tell the stories from this week.
Here's a closer look at Week Two:
This week is half home stuff and half vacation time for me and Aaron. We were able to go down to see Dave Matthews again and it was so great - a little bit of a honeymoon for us.
White borders on my photos this week for fun - I do this some weeks but not every week. I use my Epson PictureMate PM400 printer - when printing through Aperture and printing with the border is an option (the program I'm using for managing my photos - someday I will switch when it actually stops working - ha).
The "Thankful" word is from the Fall Rubber Words set. In addition to the Story Cards I used the gold asterisk chipboard pieces from the Changes Story Kit™. The "today's goals" card is also included in that kit as a paper pad.
This year I'm planning to incorporate the One Little Word® Inspirational Journal Card Set as title cards into my album. This time I added a portion of one of the Story Cards (these are an Add-On for the Changes Story Stamp™) to hold the date.
It's such a simple and easy way to add pieces of the story to my photos.
One of the questions people often ask me is about how to include "all" the photos from a trip or other event. My personal choice is to just pick and choose - I have zero desire to include every single photo I take and don't feel the need to create a separate album for some trips (some trips I do - just depends on how I'm feeling). In this case I picked a couple photos of the two of us together, a couple concert photos, and a couple beach photos. For me that was enough to tell the story of this adventure.
Keep it simple my friends.
