Week in the Life base work

I have been planning to do Week in the Life for years, but some how I never really get around to it, but this year is going to be different. I’ve started the album, have a plan of attach, scheduled special events that week so my life seems more interesting, and would love to document my day to day life.

My album is going to be 6×8. I didn’t want to do an 8.5×11 and I think the size is mini, but not too mini. I plan to only take pictures with my cell phone..because I don’t really want to lug my SLR everywhere 😛 I do not use any of those camera apps. I hate the way those photos look. I plan to print photos in 3×4 and 2×3 depending on the number I want to use and what I’m documenting. I don’t print at home (no photo printer) so I’ll plan and start my pages without photos..upload my photos Sunday night/Monday and hopefully have the album done by the end of the following week.  I plan to document foods I eat, stuff I do, and my favorite social media. It’s apart of my daily life. I plan to have a page each day called “Tweets of the day!”  It’ll have whatever awesome tweets show up in my feed or I post..not to leave my lonely Facebook out if I find something great there I’ll find a way to share it too. (same goes for Google +)

I’m using all sorts of random stuff for the book because well life is random, but I’m going to try to stick to a set of colors (red, blue, yellow, orange, and green) tweets of the day will be stamped with Lawn Fawn‘s Quinn’s ABCs and filled in with colored pencils (I’m not ready to start using Copic Markers) then I’ll print out the tweets and add some chicks from either July Studio AE or Lawn Fawn Critters on the Farm.  Days of the week will either be Silhouette or Lawn Fawn as well haven’t decided yet.

I plan to make some journaling cards (3×4 or 2×3) and do some journaling each day..and maybe try to get my husband to participate as well..but I’m not holding my breath.

The cover is created with My Mind’s Eye Alphabet Soup paper, Kraft cardstock, Echo Park (scrabble stickers), October Afternoon (date stickers)

The previews I have for you today: The cover and a test piece for “tweets of the day!” Thanks for reading and Happy Crafting ❤ Ann
