I started Project Life Tuesday in 2010 because:
- I needed to keep myself accountable and on top of my photos each week.
- My family loved being able to count on a weekly post with pics of the kids.
- I thought others might want to keep themselves accountable too.
It was a huge blessing and so I am excited to be kicking off my third year of this series.
Each Tuesday, I will share my spread from the previous week, as well as host a linky for readers to link up their pictures/layouts. This year, Epson is sponsoring Project Life Tuesday, and they provided me with their Epson Stylus R2880 Large Format Photo Printer (C11CA16201) for many of my album’s photos. Printing photos at home is hopefully going to help keep me on track!
Since we are still recouping from our week out of town, I only did Week 18 this week. I am hoping to tackle Weeks 19 and 20 next week. Some of you have already asked how I am going to handle all the beach photos we took – I am making a Shutterfly book of our trip, so I plan to keep things pretty simple for my Project Life album.
Spread one is mostly photos from my family’s visit.
The Design A insert is divided in half – half of photos of my mom and sister from Monday, before they left town and half of photos of Elias who was home sick Tuesday – Thursday. I used Martha Stewart labels for journaling on the photos and an epoxy sticker for a little pop on the date card.
The Design B insert is all photos from Sunday. I love the title extending across the top two photos. I added a bit of journaling to the bottom left slot. The photos in the middle are cropped to 4×3 and the photos at the bottom are 2×3.
The back of the Design B insert is more photos from Sunday. I embellished a 4×6 journaling card to share about our time visiting the Parthenon Sunday evening. I used the same stickers on the bottom 4×3 grid journaling card.
I love the instagram insert this week. I inserted a Hambly transparency across the top of the insert. The front side is all picture from Sunday – Friday. I used 7 Gypsies stickers to add words to most of the photos.
The back of the insert is photos from our road trip to Hilton Head. I used some travel stickers on a few of those photos.
The other Design A page is just some ordinary, every day photos from our week. I used a variety of stickers for journaling on the photos, as well as a few journaling cards.
