Each Tuesday, I share my most recent spread 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 definitely helping to keep me on track!
First off, in case you missed it, the Project Life Baby Editions are now in stock on Amazon. YAY! Here is the post with all the details. I am planning on getting the girl kit for Adeline's first year album, since I haven't done a lick of scrapbooking dedicated to her (and her brother has 2 12×12 albums from his first year). It's one of my new year's resolutions!
This past week was wildly busy because we hosted a housewarming Christmas party for about 40 people. Needless to say, I didn't squeeze much Project Life-ing in. Thankfully I had printed a few weeks worth of photos off last week, so I was able to get the first full week of October done.
This was a big spread with two inserts FULL of photos. It included a visit my parents made to Nashville, my kids week with them in Wisconsin and my trip to the Influence conference.
Page one was a Design F page protector. Nothing fancy – just photos + words. I did use a few instagrams mounted to journaling cards to fill out the page (I printed the instagrams 2×2).
The first insert was Design J and it was dedicated to my trip to Influence. All the photos were iPhone photos.
The next insert was Design G. I love this size (10×12) because it holds so many photos + still in smaller than a 12×12 and works well within a week's spread. It is all photos from the kids' trip to the pumpkin patch with my family. The pumpkin patch sticker is one that I have had in my stash since like 2007! It worked perfect for the 4×6 journaling card.
The last 12×12 page was Design A and actually featured all photos from Sunday -Tuesday. I usually like my week's spread to be chronological, but I couldn't figure out a way to make it work in a way that I liked the result. The inserts dedicated to the two special trips made more sense, so I just went with it. You'll notice that on the two bottom 6×4 photos, I took a standard 3×4 journaling card, cut it in half to make two smaller journaling blocks. I love the unifying look of the two cards on the two photos.
Can't wait to see your pages!
