Project Life Update : Week 7

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

Yesterday I took the day off and focused on my Project Life album. There were several weeks that had minor missing pieces, making the overall album incomplete. If you've been keeping track of my weekly sharing of the album, you've noticed I've skipped around a bit. This week is no exception, going back in time to share week seven. There was an insert I wanted to include, but I kept forgetting to print the extra large photo. We'll get to that, but first let's take a look what happened in this spread documenting February 12th - February 18th. 

This spread includes: 5 cell phone pictures, 1 camera photo, 2 screenshots, 1 shopping bag, 1 wedding invite, 3 web photos, and 1 business card. 

What happened this week: Haircut, shopping, makeup consultation, coffee love, olympic obsession, the polar vortex continued, a snow storm, and journaling on family and life.

This week had two references to the weather. I almost wish I had waited to document more of the polar vortex as we rose higher on that record list above with plenty more days below 32. We're into April and here in Wisconsin we're still not above 50 degrees. I chose to add the screenshots and embellish with the year and vellum hearts rather than complain one more time about how cold it was.

This week I had an appointment at Sephora which motivated me to open up my makeup bag, scatter the contents onto a 12x12 piece of white cardstock, and photograph it. Numbers were added next to each product using Photoshop before I printed it in a 6x6 size. 

I used my typewriter to add product information and slipped it into a 6x8 page protector. I love that the pages from Becky Higgins' new 6x8 album size fit perfectly into the 3 ring albums. Yay for more insert choices! I cut a coordinating piece of patterned paper and slipped it into the protector rather than adding additional photos or journaling. 

Our television was on the olympic coverage the entire week, so I made sure to include a few things. I found the logo, the US uniforms, and a tweet of some of the crazy conditions that made headlines. 

I also added to pieces of memorabilia. First was the reception information to a friend's wedding. It was a nice alternative to white cardstock helping to document the process of designing and assembling her invitations. A vellum die cut and wood veneer were attached to one side. I'm planning to include the actual invite as an insert in the actual week of her wedding, so I didn't mind covering up most of the information here. Lastly, I added a business card from a quick haircut. I'm pretty picky about who touches my mane. But this week, I needed a trim and I needed it now. So I got one at the mall in no time at all. I'm not sure I'll ever have the courage to do it again, so it needed a spot in the album. 

Thanks for checking out this week's Project Life Update. So much going on in this week's spread... Hope you found some inspiration to keep documenting your days!
