Hi there, back today with another Project Life week. This week I'm going back to a week from November 2011 which was Thanksgiving week.This week I hand journaled all my journaling cards + I used my typewriter to type on some labels that were added to the 4 x 6 inserts with photos. Lots of papers from Lily Bee Designs this week, love the soft, muted colors.
If you're using Instagram photos, you'll more little spaces to design on the leftover portion of the 4 x 6 insert. I use a piece of solid cardstock or patterned paper and then add a few more embellishments or labels for more journaling.
Here's my main insert with dates. If there's a particular holiday or main event for a week, I like to highlight it on this small title card. Here I spelled out Thanksgiving Week with small sticker letters.
Strips of cardstock and banners for journaling cards here. I'm continuing with a journaling card that acts as a week in review. Just a small bullet type list with other little happenings from the week.
You'll also notice that I used my Markit markers to write some bigger sentiments at the top of journaling cards. Simple little titles that are quick and easy.
Again, a bigger title with a Markit marker + hand journaling.
On the left I printed an Instagram at home at a smaller size to fit into the 3 x 4 journaling space. On the right I added patterned paper, a sticker and a chipboard button with baker's twine.

Another week into my 2011 albums. Hope you'r off to a good start with Project Life 2012! Remember....keeping a calendar is a great way to jot down the important events, photos taken and dates. You can check out my calendar system in this post.
Back to school this week for the girls. Back to work for me. It's just way too quiet around here, I miss my little reds. And so much to do......I have a list but don't know where to start. Guess I'll just dig in!
Etsy shop update:
I'll be updating the shop within the next few weeks with more of the small chevron & grid sacks, larger Kraft & notebook paper sacks, doilies and a Valentine kit soon. All colors and sizes of tags will be updated soon too. :)
