Hey everybody! I'm so excited to share my Week in the Life minibook with you.
Let me start out by saying that I'm not really a Week in the Life project kind of person. I typically have issues with committing to large projects, and since this one requires me to do something every day, it made me a bit nervous!
I used a basic rectangle blackboard album for this project. On the front, I tried a technique I've been wanting to do for a while. I simply glued chipboard letters to the front, then once they were dry, painted the entire front the same color, except for the little peek of yellow paper in the center of the heart.
I wanted to use all small photos in my album. I feel like for this size, smaller is better, and I'm a sucker for mini photos anyway.
Sunday started off with a bang. Photos from every part of the day, from church to time for bed. I chose to do list journaling instead of paragraph form. For me, this is easier than trying to make up a paragraph about why I made peach crisp for dessert or decided to organize my scarves.
On average, I took about six photos a day. I find that this number was pretty realistic for me...I forgot to grab my camera on a few days, so I had to make up for it in journaling and later in the evening (see, told you I was bad at this!)
I used the Two-Day Hooray Days of the Week Buttons in Black to mark my days. I'm a total sucker for buttons, too.
For this page, I took the punch outs from the Negative Number Package Tags, placed them on my paper and used them as a mask. I wanted to throw in a few pages that weren't covered in photos to break things up a bit. After misting and drying, I used my sewing machine to make a scalloped border to give it some interest.
Here are the supplies I used for this album:
All in all, I didn't use too many embellishments. The buttons were a perfect fit for this project...just enough shine for what I wanted.
I hope you enjoyed a little peek into my Week in the Life.
