I think I’m finding my groove with this project. I’ve discovered that the Design F format works best for me, that I really like sequential photos and that simple is better to keep me from being overwhelmed by it. I spotted these free printables from Miss Tiina on Pinterest and downloaded them to use this week. I print my journaling cards on semi-gloss photo paper and then write on them with an American Crafts slick writer. It makes hand writing the journaling much easier.
I bought that for Jeff for his birthday thinking he would hang it in the bedroom but as it turns out, the foyer’s high ceilings and hardwood floors were practically begging to be turned into a basketball court. I mean, I thought it wanted to be turned into a gallery wall for family photographs but apparently, I don’t know my foyer as well as I thought. Scarlette’s favorite thing to do is stand at the top of the stairs and watch Jeff shoot. I love how she’s on her tippy toes.
The second photo is a peek at how I journal under the mini photos. I adhere them with washi tape either on the outside for decoration, or in the case of the photostrip I adhere it on the inside so that you can’t see it. That way I can lift both to see more details about the photos. Also, yes I did totally mis-date it.
The album is very Scarlette heavy and I am okay with that. I started Project Life to document her second year with us- more than just the big milestones, but all the little things like how much she loves to pull things out of boxes or the way she decides she wants to wear a hat around the house (she’s very insistent for someone who only says three words!)
Project Life In Progress: Title Page, Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4, Week 5, Week Six – I know I normally post these on Tuesdays but tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and I have some *love* to share in the form of two giveaways that I am really excited about!
I’m linking up with my friend Jess at The Mom Creative for Project Life Tuesday, where there are tons of ideas!
Here are the supplies I used:
