Day In The Life™ 2021 | Special Guest Kasha Gage
Today, we're excited to welcome creative team member, Kasha Gage. She's going to be sharing her completed Day in the Life album.
Hello everyone. Today I’m happy to be sharing with you a closer look at my 2021 Day in LifeTM album. I love this one-day documenting project and am so thankful to have participated again this year.
Whenever I go to tackle a “bigger” project – whether it’s like this or Week in the Life, I like to give myself some space and time from the words & the photos. I know this method may not be everyone – there isn’t a right way or a wrong way here. But it’s what I’ve found works best in helping me finish these projects.
In the walkthrough video below, you’ll hear me talk about a couple of design choices I considered and reasons why I decided to go in a different direction.
I’m also offering a couple of ideas + suggestions for those who are documenting this in their Project Life but aren’t sure where to start.
Let’s jump right in to the video.
Here’s a closer look at my album via images.
For this documenting day, I used the story prompt “around here” as my lens. I cut a slit in the 4x6 journal card to hold one of last year’s DITL tags (these are available digitally). Stamped twenty-twenty-one, added a phrase sticker + mini-chipboard heart (from this year’s kit), and added the date using black puffy stickers from the Storytelling Basics collection.
My album followed a formula (for the most part). I printed all of my journaling directly on the “around here” journal card and on top adhered a mini-chipboard heart on top of one of the boxes.
I printed all of my photos here at home – sized to 7x4.25 inches. For some photos I added white chipboard phrases (from last year’s WITL and still available) on photos where I felt it added something.
Playing with pockets. In between photos, I used the (2) 3x4 pockets that were included with the album to hold my journaling. I printed my journaling on inkjet transparency.
Even though there’s white space in both of these photos – I intentionally didn’t fill them in with embellishments. That way it wouldn’t detract from the simplicity of the journaling.
Day in the Life reminded me just how much I love capturing + documenting my everyday lives. I hope this provides some inspiration for your Day in the Life album and I look forward to the next documenting day together later this fall.
Hi, I’m Kasha Gage. I’m originally from the Midwest but Connecticut is where my husband & I now call home. I love capturing my life via photos + words. Memory keeping allows me to blend my passions for photography, design and storytelling. You’ll usually find me with either a book, my camera or making my 10th list for the day (not necessarily in that order or a one or the other).

Hi Kasha. I love your album. How do you print on acetate. Do you have a laser printer. I have an inkjet but did not think that would work.
I think she said somewhere that they're inkjet transparencies. :)
