Project Life 2012 | Week 26

I ran out of ink during Week 26, so I couldn’t print all of the photos from our Maker Fair adventure. So I went back in and added an insert. I cut our program in half to use for one side.

Then I included all of my favorite photos from the fair.

Of course the best photos (Jonas with the robot and Eliza and Jake with Darth Vader) were the largest. I added photos and words straight in from the blog post (one of my favorite scrapbooking tricks). This side was mostly digital with a few stickers added in for color.

And the second page is just a digital photo collage. The pages was looking too crowded, so I added in strips of off-white to separate the photos and to give the eye a place to rest.

And then the back of the program + a bit of memorabilia (sticker, reduction print from one of the tables, wristband).

I really like making smaller layouts for big events and adding them to Project Life as inserts. It’s making Project Life really work as my only scrapbooking system (though I’ll still be making minis like this one). It’s also inspiring me to really focus on the photos and the story, because I’m thinking of each page as part of a whole instead of as it’s own element. Love it, love it, love it.
