Week In The Life 2016 Insert

This year I decided to do my Week in the life as an insert in my Project Life album 6x12. I have really enjoyed this size and decided to continue right in the labum, segregating it with a divider page using the free printable. I added a twenty sixteen digital stamp I owned from Studio Calico. I opened a page in Photoshop and enlarged the digital stamp to fit on 6x12, then cut a piece of 12 x 12 paper to A4 and ran it through my printer, before trimming down to 6x12 of as near as I could get!
Each day starts with a full page photo with the day of the week as a digital stamp on the top.

 Each 6x12 pocket page has an empty pocket with a wood veneer in it so you can glimpse the 6x12 photo for the next day through it.











My day cards were made in Photoshop with digital stamps from Studio Calico printed on 6x4 patterned paper. Any other 3x4 or 6x4 cards were from my Studio Calico documenter kit. TFLx

Documenting Week 16 & 17

 This month's Studio calico kit had an acetate card 'Yeah!' which I used on these two layouts. Documenting digitally before printing out the pictures makes the process quick too and a collage photo of the best pages from the ladybird book I bought Ian for our anniversary, means you get more on a page too.

Documenting Weeks 13, 14, 15


This week was all about the little things that bring me joy, like getting dad working with me on a little DIY project like the old days.

Exciting things happening over Easter including Sergio's first 'sausage meet' with the Yorkshire Dachshund group.
The safe arrival of my new great nephew and some happy wedding anniversary celebrations.

Documenting weeks 10,11,12

 Week 10 was all about decorating the lounge and being upside down, preparing for new carpet.
 Week 11 was all about getting the carpet fitted and the lounge back together.
Week 12 was about Mother's day, finishing my crocheting and the endless rain, as well as visiting Sergio's family. Keep it going! TFLx

Documenting weeks 7,8,9

 Week 7 included a chocolate bar wrapper from the shop where my son used to work.
Week 8 included Valentines day so I added the card I bought hubby in a 6x8 page protector.

Week 9 was our friend's 50th party so I included the invite, the menu and the table decorations I designed and made. Tflx

Crochet crazy!

I've gone crochet crazy in 2016! First the dog
Then the blankie
Then some flower bunting with the left over wool, all from Stylecraft patterns
I even pulled back my throw and started again! 
Really enjoying it!

Documenting weeks 4,5,6 2016

 Forgot to post these spreads from my 6x12 album. I included a 6x8 insert with tyis photo of Sergio split into 3 pieces so I could document some extra make up details on the back. I included this RNLI invite for the annual dinner hubby organises too. The loose leaves are back to back on the dotted acetate for a little see through element.
