Week 45: November 4-10

I had fewer photos than average for this week, all of them from Jake’s and my iPhones, so I decided to spread things out a bit and have a little fun with the layout by switching up my photo shape and making a line of circles across the middle 3×4 spots.
Tip: Print Instagrams at 2×2, then use a circle punch 1.75 inches in diameter for a a fun way to display lots of little photos.
This week is typically first week of November happenings. Taking walks in piles of leaves (that photo of Jonas is one of my favorites), voting, drinking lots of tea because of the beginnings of getting sick, reading big books, cleaning, that sort of thing.
Tip: If Project Life core kits are too repetitive for you, try a mini kit, like this Cut and Paste Mini Kit by Amy Tangerine. This specific kit has two designs per 3×4 card (though they are double sided, so you could use each design only once).
Tip: There are some places you can’t really bring your phone, like a voting booth or the inside of a movie theater. In those cases, take a photo outside or with a sign instead! I don’t always use these photos, but having them gives me a visual reminder to write a note in Project Life if I decided to skip the photo. This one of Jake post-voting was too great not to use, though!
Tip: If you find yourself taking photos of something similar over and over, try playing with different photo angles to make things more interesting and fun for yourself! There are tons of photos of me reading, but this angle with the book top at the forefront is a first. Plus, it emphasizes how big the book was!
Tip: Journaling doesn’t have to be profound. For really simple journaling, just list out what is going on in the photos!
This page was all everyday fall stuff too: our gorgeous mums, dinners with our friend Paul, watching my friends’ baby Ava, Jake’s cool shoe lacing, the park, and some diner love.
Tip: Use your most stand out photo in a spread, like this mum photo, to determine your color scheme.
Tip: 3×4 photos can just as easily go in 4×6 spots, adhered to 4×6 cards. I like overlapping a sticker between the card and the photo to connect them a little better and break up the line between them.
I really loved the change of pace with this simple spread, and it came together so quickly because I resolved to just stick to a few products (linked below). I’m a little late to the party, but I’m a huge fan of this Amy Tangerine Cut and Paste stuff. I can’t wait for Plus One.
