Week 34: August 19-25

For this page, I was originally intending to put all of the little square Instagram photos in a tight grid on one side of the layout with a strip of journaling going down the length of the page on the other side, but the cute Amy Tangerine Cut Out Accents gave me another idea. I centered the photos and used the accents along with other bits to attach journaling and phrases to the photos. It makes the grid much more fun!
If you do traditional scrapbooking and don’t make pocket pages, a page like this is a great way to document many stories that are unrelated, a sort of “picture of life right now,” on one page.
I really loved carrying the Cut & Paste line through the rest of the spread, from the Heart Throb Paper in the background of the layout to the cards from the Cut & Paste Mini Project Life Kit (which is shaping up to be my favorite kit ever) in the pocket pages.
Tip: Include white outlines on photos that will be on patterned paper backgrounds to make ensure they don’t get lost in the pattern.
This insert has a family selfie with photos of playing ping pong and racquetball at the gym.
Tip: Convert “bad” or grainy photos to black and white–it makes the imperfections much less noticeable!
On the back of the insert, I documented a bit about baby Ava, who I watch a few times a week, Jonas’s and Eliza’s love of reading, and Eliza playing with our neighbor.
This week we spent a lot of time with family, so I got a few pages in about that! There’s also a bit about Jake’s work stuff, which I need to document more about in 2014.
Tip: Have another family member write on a journaling card about something you’re not a part of, like Jake did on the card about his job.
