This week was action packed with great everyday moments, Eliza’s back to school, and Jake’s and my wedding anniversary! YOu know what that means–lots of inserts.
I generally like to start with the most everyday stuff in a spread, so I started with visiting with my great-grandpa + a bunch of everyday Instagrams.
Tip: Include a 2×3 photo on a 3×4 journaling card so you can fit the photo and a bit of journaling on the same card!
There was a lot of canning this week. Finally, a literal use for those trendy mason jars!
This week was all about back to school. We went to Eliza’s back to school night and I wanted to make sure to document meeting her new teacher for the first time and the adorable reunion she had with her teacher from last year. Eliza also had her first day of second grade! We always take first day photos, it’s one of my favorite photo related traditions. Luckily, I had a blog post about her first day waiting for me.
Tip: I’m a big fan of getting the words and photos in the now and doing pretty things with them later. This is especially a good option for “big events” or busy times, because these are the times when you’ll have a lot to document but not a lot of time to document!
Tip: Have a lot of document in a week? Try using multiple inserts–you can use the back of the first insert and the front of the second to create a double page insert spread about a bigger story you have to tell!
To document Jake’s and my wedding anniversary, I combined an insert about our date with a traditional page. The page, What I Like About You…, combines journaling from both of us.
Tip: It might seem redundant to document something that happens yearly, like an anniversary, but annual celebrations are a good time to check in on non-event things you might otherwise forget to document. Use these times to focus on relationships or individual’s personalities. Document how these things have changed in the past year or paint a word picture of what they are like right now!
