10x8 STRIPED ALBUM | $32.99

Ali will be using this album for her 2022 project.

Something new this year is a Week In The Life™ journal. Our team is super excited with how this turned out and anticipate a variety of ways it can be used. Some people might use it for note-taking/story collection during the documenting week and others may use it for their entire project this year. I love that it brings additional options for people to tell their stories. 

This is the same size as the One Little Word® Journal (6.25 x 8.5 approx).

There are also two blank spreads in between each day.

    Will the new 10x8 page protectors be available separately? I am thinking I would like to use the grey linen DD 10x8 album.

      i don’t believe it’s either - it’s more chipboard like other albums in other collections.

      Chipboard

    Beautiful! I’m wondering if the journal would fit inside the Kraft envelope from main or mini kit? Like a storage envelope for the journal.

      Hi! I think the envelopes are too small.

      @lisavarshine, why will the digitals be released this late? I am, and I gather there are many more with me, documenting the same week as in all the past years, for me this year including Mothersday, Sunday May 8th. Thanks.

    I love the colors! But will there be other 6x8 albums available in the witl box? I picked the yellow linen album last year, and think it would bug me to have another yellow next to it on the shelf…😅I don’t have space for the bigger one. 🤷🏻‍♀️

      Yes, I also thought "oh, another yellow" It's been yellow for two weeks already and now a third. I would prefer another colour.

    2. Worldtraveler50 says…
      03/27/2022

      Same here. I'm considering using the OLW album instead. I truly love yellow but three consecutive yellow albums I'd rather have another color.

    3. Mrsfabry says…
      03/28/2022

      I agree; I don’t like yellow much to start with, and then last year it was an odd faded custard yellow and this one is uber bright and almost garish. I’m probably going to also go with the OLW album or use a griege one to match the others I have on my shelf. I like a colorful interior with fonts and chipboard, but when it sits on the shelf I don’t want it to be a sore thumb.

    4. eiramino says…
      03/28/2022

      The OWL album was a good option! Picks up the stripes from my first witl in 2017. 🥰

  7. kathleen says…
    03/26/2022

    Love everything! I’m super excited to jump into this project! I was initially intimidated by the larger album for DD, but I can’t wait to play with the new to me size for WITL! Thrilled that I can print full page pictures with my regular printer.

    Just a practical thought that would be helpful. As I am not familiar with the time zones in the US and every time a release comes out I take ages trying to work it out and makes sure I have the right time in my phone. I am wondering if on the post you might be able to put the time for some of the major countries/cities alongside e.g London, Melbourne?
    Just a thought - thanks 😊

      Hi! There is an app called Time Buddy that I find really helpful (I live in Europe).

    2. AliEdwards says…
      03/26/2022

      Hi! We've standardized our release times so you can expect them to be at the 12pm Eastern/9am Pacific time. Pacific Time would be Los Angeles.

    3. eiramino says…
      03/28/2022

      It’s super easy to just use google! Just search "12pm est to amsterdam" or whatever capital city you want. 😊

    I did week in the life once about ten years ago.But the journal might bei a great option to give it a try again!

    I really like the look of the journal. I love doing WITL and regularly use Ali's templates from years ago to record each day, but I rarely (i.e., never) make it past the documenting stage to the putting-it-all-together stage. With a bound journal my documenting becomes my album and I can print and add some photos without so much pressure. It also takes up less half space and will be easier to keep track of during get week than a bunch of loose papers :)

    Will there always be an inside cover in albums? It has stopped me from buying some DD albums that I otherwise loved. Now it's these I'll miss out on. I mean I like the yellow album, but these yellow flowers do nothing for me. Plus, they'd clash with my pages as I don't intend to use the kit. And same with the other album, I'd rather not have hearts. Do you think you could include one blank or neutral pattern in each release please?

      She had more albums in her shop outside the witl-category, I ended up buying one of those. 😊

    2. Marjorie30 says…
      03/28/2022

      I'm international, so buying outside of the release isn't an option, unfortunately. Shipping fees are much too high.

    3. eiramino says…
      03/28/2022

      I’m international too (Norway), but I only wanted an album + main kit, and that was less than the flat rate for me. It’s worth checking out!

    4. Marjorie30 says…
      03/29/2022

      Oh, ok! Sorry. Last time I checked it was unbelievably high. Thanks!

    Great designs and happy colors for the win. Are you going to show samples of what the stamps look like stamped? Have you had the alpha stamp in this font before? Thanks.

      Working on that right now - they will be shared on IG (and I think I'll add to this post too).

    I was not going to do Week in the Life this year, BUT lol I’ve never used a journal yet and would love to try!!! So I think it could totally work out for me not having to “complete an album”. Great products as always, Ali! I’m also happy about the change of date! I’ll be on summer break. 😎 Super excited to document this year!!

    Personally, I love the yellow. Bring on all the yellow, again and again. And the daisies make me so darn happy. I think you always have plenty of basic albums in the shop and these special releases are times when we get something different and unique. And because I live in the US and it will be summer when I'm documenting, yellow and flowers will align with so many of the stories I'm sure I'll be telling (sunshine, plants/flowers, pool/water, being outside, summer food/drinks). And love the journal as well - I use my OLW journal all the time. Thank you for including so many "story directed" items recently, they make it so easy to get stories told and actually finish projects. Yay!

    So many 6x8 album options from other places (scrapbook.com, Studio Calico, Ali's own shop!) that it is hard to get upset about yellow when the entire collection is so beautiful and maybe most importantly, inspiring us to practice gratitude for the good things in our everyday lives.
    What I REALLY came on to say is, the WITL journal... SO AWESOME.... I might use it for a weeklong vacation coming up. <3

      Outside of the kits probably the heart pockets + the 10x4 journal cards (I'm really excited about the new page protector size).

    Any chance some version of the journal might show up in the next travel collection? I take lots of notes when I travel and this would be fun to take along and give places for lots of details (I’d add a daily paper clip for ephemera). Lots of potential!

      Hi! We are doing a travelers notebook with some designs/patterns on the inside (not prompts like this one) - definitely something for the future!
