Project Life: March 4-10

In today's project life catch up post, I decided to go out of order and skip a couple of February weeks in favor of the first week of March.  I'll hop back to those February weeks within the next few days.
But for now I'm ready to move on to March 2013.  The first week of March was full of random things and a fun weekend trip, so I needed to find ways to maximize space.  I used Basic Grey Hey You and Hey Boy from my March and April Counterfeit Kits on this week's pages.



Last week's page left me with a page with two 3x4 and one 4x6 spots, not exactly what I needed for this week.  So I used one spot for the date card, one spot for a Candy Crush screen cap, and then printed a 4x4 PhotoGrid to combine some other random moments of the week.


That weekend I traveled to PA to visit friends and go to a family baby shower.  I used a Snap page with two 4x4 spots and made more PhotoGrids for each event.  The long 2x8 spot was a good place for an event ticket and some matching BINGO paper from the Hey Boy 6x6 pad.


The top spot has a 4x4 grid on the outside, and then a flap that opens to show another grid and some journaling for that visit with friends.

I did the same thing on the bottom 4x4 spot, this time for the baby shower.  Another grid and another flap gave me room to journal and include several pictures.


I used these tabs from the Hey You sticker sheet to mark the two events.

It was nice to cover so much territory in just two pages, without adding a bunch of inserts.  I've now done it both ways and I like both options. But I don't want to always fall back on "just add more pages," because I chose a small size album.  And working with the two-page/week layout will help keep the bulk of the book in check, too. 

That's it for today.  If you're enjoying my daily catch-up, follow me on Instagram or Twitter for a daily reminder. Just scroll back to the top of the page and click on one of those social media buttons on the right side of the page.

See you tomorrow!

  1. Fabulous pages!!! I have a week coming up that I have tons of pictures for and I was wondering how I could add more photos without adding more pages. Now I have a solution that just might work!
