A Day In the Life, recorded.
I love this project. I recorded many of my thoughts and photos from the day I documented this year in March on my blog here.
I did get the Ali Day in the Life kit to use as well. It's a super affordable little kit, but it came with a great roller time and date stamp and some cards and circle chipboards as well. I used several of the Story Kit Stamps as well. The rest of the cards and embellishments are mostly kit club leftovers.
I kept the title page pretty simple, but the colorful 4x6 card really made it stand out. I used kraft alphas for the title. A big thing for me in mini albums is repetition, so in addition to kit items I repeated the kraft throughout using word strips. I also repeated the cork heart in several places.
I love the graphic look of these black and white cards together.
I used photoshop to add an inch of white space to hold my text on my photos. I used Bebas Neue for the times and Courier New for the text. It seems basic but I like the typewriter look it has without being too fussy.
I added the white script on my foot photo in photoshop as well.
Lots of different handwriting mixed together. Cursive, careful printing and messy text all on one spread. I used the time stamp here again.
Love leaving one pocket see through with the translucent moon paper there. Most of the text is taken directly from my blog post. So thankful I wrote that while it was still fresh.
To be continued.

If you are thinking about getting into scrapbooking, may I suggest Day in the Life? It is a highly fulfilling project that can be completed quickly. One day of pictures and writing and then just a few days to put it all together. You can repeat this project every year or even every few years and get a great snapshot of what life is like recorded for yourself and family.
