Story Play | Day In The LIfe™ | Documenting Set Up

Welcome back to Story Play 2023 | Day In The Life™

Today I'm sharing my simple set up + approach for documenting color on Saturday. I'm going really straightforward with this particular project in order to keep the focus on the color treasure hunt piece. I love how the products invite and directly support the story I'm wanting to tell.

Let's dive right into the simple set up video:

And here's a look at my design formula: 

I'm using the striped vellum page + three of the chipboard tags as my title page for this project. I plan to add all of the Story Play adventures into this album over the course of the year. 

On the back of the intro page I'll cut three small close up photos to the size of the chipboard tags and adhere on this side. This both covers up the backs of the chipboard and is a fun peek into the colorful photos to come. 

I'll open my documenting with five observations from the day. These might be color related or they might be about the general life flow right now. Simple observations. 

On the back of that full page of prompts I'll be adding one photo from my day or I'll add a collage of photos (this will depend on how many photos I take overall and how I feel when it comes to bringing it all together). 

For each color I'm planning to include a 3x4 photo and a 4x6 photo and then keep a running list of "blue" things I see on Saturday. 

And then repeat that same formula for each color:  

I'll finish off my documenting with the "found delights" prompt page. Currently I think I'll be adding photos to those spaces and then write some final reflections in the bottom "details" section. 

Miss out on the physical kit? Grab a digital kit and/or look in your stash for supplies to support your storytelling for Saturday.

    Hi Hi Ali! Loved watching your setup for DITL. Thank you for providing the alternative spelling for colour. Just noting that the pink tag which says "colors from life" isn't in the digital package with the alternative spelling.

    Great video - so helpful to see your set-up as inspiration. Can you share what hole punch you use?
