Let me just say that I’m obsessively in love with this project. Every time I put the album away I have to fight the urge to get it out and look at it. Also, I’m pretty sure everyone that visits our house this year is going to be
forced nicely asked to look at it.
Just like week one’s spread, I did two 12×12 pages with a 6×12 insert. Also like last week, both of my 12×12 pages are different brands (this time it’s We R Memory Keepers and American Crafts; links at the bottom of the post) and have different sizes and photo slot orientations. I like the look of this: it allows me to include bigger vertical orientation photos and also makes it feel less like I’m doing the exact same thing week after week.
You’ll also notice that I didn’t use any products from the Project Life Brand this week. I’m loving this project for the philosophy, the ease, the celebration of the everyday, and the challenge of creating weekly spreads. But I don’t want to get caught up in buying the products (which I think are awesome, let’s be clear, I’m not bashing them) when I have a ridiculously large stash of scrapping supplies at my disposal.
Because our camera lens broke in the middle of the week, the photos are all from the beginning of the week or our phones. We got all of the important stuff; that’s what matters.
The first spread (left to right and up to down) has a journaling card describing a dinner we had with friends, Eliza opening up her biggest birthday present, a Star Wars logo with journaling (we’ve been watching the movies), Jonas at the setting of E’s birthday dinner (T-Rex and journaling about the dinner, Jonas climbing on his pirate ship car w/ journaling, and little notes about the week (E went back to school after Winter Break, our camera lens broke, I went to Stitch and B***h with friends).
The front side of the insert is all about Eliza’s birthday. The first photo was actually taken on New Year’s Eve, but it captures her personality and style (she dressed herself) that I included it anyway.
The backside of the insert was all about the Lego Competition we went to. The journaling was pulled directly from the blog post (edited a bit for length).
The last page shows one of the major themes of the week. Several nights we spent the time between dinner and bed together in the living room while I read Harry Potter 4 out loud, Jake and Eliza worked on building her new LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle . Jonas toddled around and climbed on things (his new favorite pass time).
