Week in the Life progress

Hi there!

As promised, I thought I would jump on here real quick to show you you progress in completing my Week in the Life album for this year.

So, yesterday was spent mainly focussing on choosing & printing my photos for each day.  As I mentioned on Friday, I didn’t take many photos during the course of the week, so I think each day will be quite short.  That’s OK though.  This is my first attempt at this project.

I spent most of yesterday afternoon choosing my photos for my front pages for each day. I had originally decided on just using 6×4 and 3×4 pockets for each day. However, after having a look at Ali Edwards’ final layout, I like the idea of a full page photo to start each day. I’m not sure what the back of each page protector will look like yet. I might mix it up a little thoughout the week. 

I’m really pleased with the final photos for the week.  

 This is my title page to the album. I’ve used my Amy Tangerine alpha stitch stencil kit. I intend to stamp the date underneath. I really like how this turned out. 

          This was my original set-up for each day. I may still end up using some of these pockets, we’ll see how the project evolves. All cards above were included in the Week in the Life 2016 kit from Ali Edwards. 

    I used the This/Was week layered templates available from Ali’s digital shop. I made a blank template the correct size for what I wanted (6×8) and brought in the photo I wanted & also the relevant day overlay. I alternated between was & is throughout the week. I left off the date of record layer as I will be adding this on other places throughout the album. 

Here are the finished photos for the week.


I really like how they turned out.

I had hope to have got my other photos printed out today. However, after getting the food shopping done this morning, I had some work to do ahead of work tomorrow; so I didn’t get as much done today as I would have hoped. 

I should get done time this week in the evenings to get some additional work done on the album. 

You can grab the layered templates I used from Ali’s shop here and the Week in the Life physical kit with album here.

Thanks for stopping by,
