Yesterday I posted a video tutorial on how to work with the Day In The Life™ 6x12 layered template set. You can check out that post here. You can also check out my post where I share just my photos and journaling here.
You might notice that I skipped Weeks Eleven & Twelve of Project Life®. They are in the works and I'll be sharing them soon - I wanted to get this one done at the same time that I completed the insert so you could see how it all worked together.
If you missed out on the physical Day In The Life™ kit you can pick up the digital version that includes the cards and chipboard circles here. We will be offering a new kit for the next round of Day In The Life™ in a couple of months.
I'm going to start by just showing you how the inserts turned out and then below I'll show you how it looks inside Project Life® Week 13. You can think of this as a story within a story - a deep-dive into one day of the week sandwiched between other stories.
Scroll down for an 18-minute video overview of this project:
For my story I ended up using three page protectors:
- 6x12, 3-pocket page protector
- 6x12, 1-pocket page protector
- 6x8, 3-pocket page protector (I just cut this one from a Design A page protector - the one I use every week for Project Life®).
I printed 4 photos to 4x6 using my Epson PM400 printer. I decided on these 4 as I was working with the 6x12 layered template. On top of each photo I added a chipboard circle (or two on the front) + the time and a little phrase.
The bulk of my journaling came directly from what I wrote when I posted my photos and times to Instagram. It made it so easy to do it right then and then be able to copy and paste into both my blog post and then onto these two 4x6 cards. As you can see, I created some space within my journaling to hold the #1 and #2 chipboard circles. I used Helvetica Condensed Bold for the times and Remington Noiseless for my journaling.
The bulk of my photos were used on a 6x12 layered template that I used for two pages.
On the time card I decided to write something I was thankful for. I could have had this out during the actual day, but instead I just looked back through my photos and generated thoughts while looking at my photos based on what was happening at that time.
I ended up with two pages of the 6x12 layered template. Such a great home for all these photos + times.
And here's how it looks within Week 13 of my Project Life® album:
I decided to keep my spread super simple this week - just words + photos. I incorporated additional cards from the Day In The Life™ kit + cards from a couple recent Documenter kits from Studio Calico. I also printed all my photos with a white border to keep it consistent between the day and the week. I love how that turned out.
"Love hard" is from the Homespun Documenter Kit.
I love seeing all that typed-up story.
Love those two.
The trees, man they are so awesome right now. The "reasons to be happy" card and the "definition of joy" card are from the Savannah Documenter Kit.
One of my favorite photos from last week is this shot of Sam sitting on the porch. I took it from inside my house - my front door has two long windows, one on each side of the door. This shot was taken with my phone and I simply tapped on the screen on the sky portion to make the inside super dark and the outside light (vs. what it initially wanted to do which was to light everything so it was all washed out).
