This week brought a huge change to my normal Project Life spread. Instead of a single page condensed Design F for the week; I created a two-page spread with an insert. This week documents more of our trip to Southern California, we took so many pictures and did so many things worth documenting that anything less than this would have been a disservice to our memories :).
Please excuse the mediocre quality of the photos — the weather has been absolutely terrible for taking photos the past few weeks, every day is just dreary. I am completely ready for winter to be over.
*Warning — this post is VERY photo heavy, it might take a couple seconds to load :)
During week two, I used a Design D page protector because I had some fantastic 4×6 vertical pictures that I wanted to include. So the left side this week is the back of that Design D page. I added my customary condensed Design F page protector on the right side and in the middle is a 6×8 page protector (studio calico).
I had several really fun sunset pictures this week; so I tried (mostly) to keep the color palette filled with muted oranges and blues (the Seafoam kit was really great). I used the Studio Calico January PL kit as well as a lot of Elle’s Studio tags — which you can pick up in the shop soon!
This is the left side of the spread. I used a Design D (becky higgins) Page Protector. I could not get a clear picture of this side for the life of me — I must have tried at least 30 times on 5 or 6 different days — so glad spring is almost here. Those vertical pictures were two of my favorite shots from our entire vacation. I opted to use a lot more of my space for photos this week, with just little snippets of journaling here and there.
**aside: at CHA a lot of the manufacturers came out with 12×12 patterned paper sheets with 3×4 sized card images. They’re the same cost as any other sheet of 12×12 paper and you can cut them up into 12 individual cards. This is a GREAT way to keep your project life budget down but still get some extra fun in there.
