I opted for a super simple cover, just one photo and some rubber words that capture perfectly why I'm doing this project in the first place.
I used my typewriter for the journaling here, I'm planning on mixing typewritten and handwritten journaling throughout the album. My old typewriter could use a good cleaning, but I kind of love the dirty look I get with the gunk filled letters.
I had so many photos that I decided to hole punch some photos and a journaling card and add directly to my album.
I'm kind of obsessed with this tree in my front yard. Total overload of photos of it and I'm sure the whole album will be overflowing with pictures of it, but at this time of year it's my absolute favorite.
Again, I hole punched a journaling card and photo to add directly to the album. I'm really liking the way it looks and I get more space for photos. The Week in the Life kit from Ali Edwards is so gorgeous! I think I'm going to try and stick with using just the kit, but we'll see how that goes.
I haven't quite decided what to do with the whole 6x8 page on the right... I was thinking about maybe printing some news report for a general feel of what was going on this week, but I'm open to suggestions. I just have a selphy printer at home, so a big photo is out (I think).
I'm looking forward to seeing how you are putting your album together... If you've blogged about it, I'd love to see! Link me up if you want to share.
