Week In The Life™ 2020 | Susan's 4x6 Album

Today I'm super excited to bring you a Week In The Life™ project that I saw last week on Instagram from a member of our community named Susan (you can connect with her via her Instagram account here). I asked her if I could share her story here on my blog and she said yes! To keep things simple I just had her send me the images she had included in her story and I'm adding them here into the post. 

Susan had a really creative way to put together her Week In The Life™ album for this year in a 4x6 size using binder rings and small string tags to bind the pages to the rings along with the kit. I completely LOVE how she used a circle punch to punch holes at the end of some of her pages to create pockets to hold additional content (totally want to remember to incorporate that idea into my album this year). 

Just a reminder that I'll be documenting my week coming up with a beginning date of Monday, May 11th. As always, and just like Susan did here, I encourage you to make it your own! There's still time to order any products you might need to support your storytelling here

Thanks so much for being willing to share with us here on my blog Susan!  

Let's dive in: 

Thanks again Susan!

      Thanks! Sometimes I see a card and can't imagine how I would use it but something always comes along that makes it just right.

    So cute, I love how she really just went all in with “using” the products not necessarily for the way of intent but I love it! I sometimes don’t have the “guts” (courage) to do that even though Ali says there will always be more/newer product so maybe I should just trust the professional and the fact that it’s true! I am so glad you were able to share! Thank you Susan

      Thank you! It's taken me a long time but I finally realized that it's better to use things than to keep holding on to them for a someday that might never come.

    Really loved seeing the unique approach, so creative. I have purchased the digital kit this year and I’m planning on doing a travellers notebook to document just for a different challenge.

      Thank you! I think a traveler's notebook would be great for this project, too.

    This is such a cool WITL album and just perfect for this year when there will still be stories to be told but, for me, no where near a whole album worth! Thanks so much for sharing x

      Thank you! I have done full albums for a couple of other years but this time the mini kit just really spoke to me.

    Wow! thanks so much for sharing! I really enjoyed looking at how you put together your album and have noted a few ideas for another project I am currently working on. Love the use of tags to hold your album together. Genius! I also enjoyed reading your journalling. I live in Canada and I can relate to almost everything you wrote. We really are all in this together. There are no borders!

    WOW! Beautiful album Susan. I also love having consistency in mini albums and work off a formula. The kits make that so easy to do. I especially love the color combinations the kits offered this year. Thank you both Susan and Ali!
