On the 15th of each month this year, I’m documenting a Day in the Life, a concept originated by Ali Edwards. Last year I used Ali’s templates to include a 6×12 insert for every Day in the Life I did, but this year I wanted a bit more wiggle room. So I’m throwing a full spread in between weekly spreads (extra full spreads in addition to weekly spreads is sort of my M.O. this year).
Here’s February’s Day in the Life:

I kept the pages really simple, sticking to just the Amy Tangerine Cut and Paste kit and a few stickers. I love embellishing, but when I have a lot of words and photos to include, things can get too crowded easily.
Also, confession: I didn’t mean to use an insert, but I printed out a few horizontal 4×6 photos for the morning before I remembered that the left page I was working with from the previous week had vertical orientation 4×6 pockets. Instead of wasting the photos I’d already printed, I just rolled with it, re-sketched another layout for the photos, and made it work.
Tip: The alphas I used for the words “morning,” “afternoon,” and “night” from Studio Calico are tiny and can be hard to maneuver. These reverse grip tweezers are one of my most used tools and are essential to me for working with tiny bits like these.
Are you doing Day in the Life this year? How are you containing your documentation?
