I did however include some packaging from a chapstick tube and some art work from my son's backpack. This became quite a focus of my week, I wanted to highlight how much I love the types of Christmas crafts he has been bringing home.
I wanted to take a little time and address the 4x6 Journaling Spots in a Project Life spread. There are eight 4x6 spots in a week's layout (in Becky Higgins' Design A photo pockets), so you are given plenty of opportunity to try many different ideas for these larger spots. I often use one of these spots to include the week's calendar date and a brief summary of highlights.
Large Journaling Tags (which are 4x6 and come in a pack of 6) as the base for the photo pocket. I love doing this because it provides plenty of room to add an instax/wallet photo, journaling, a title/date, and embellishments. The 4x6 Journaling tags really makes these larger spaces easy to use.
If I ever get stuck and feel like a spot needs a little "extra something" I usually add an Elle's Studio Tidbits or Date Tags, washi tape, mist drops, a strip of pattern paper, or even a paperclip.
We have a winner from last week's giveaway! Congrats to Nana R Nassar !! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Contest: Project Life December 13th
Just a note to let you know we will be taking next week off from our Project Life Series in order to enjoy the holidays with our families. I will be back on January 3 with more Project Life Inspiration as we head into a New Year! Elle and I are so excited that many of you will be participating in Project Life in 2012 and we can't wait to provide inspiration and encouragement as you embarking on this wonderful system of documentation.
