Project Life- Staycation and Week 19

So this week I had something big- we had friends fly in to visit us on Saturday morning of week 18 and left Tuesday morning of week 19. Rather than trying to cram their visit into my regular weekly spreads plus inserts, I decided to do a spread for just the trip. We crammed a lot in to the 3.5 days that they were here and so I ended up with a LOT of inserts- most small, but still, a lot. I’m also trying to document more of the little details and show how the spreads look in album. I’ll be posting a week behind roughly now in order to share properly. I’m not going to talk a lot and just show you instead:

Day One

Fun tip #1: print digital cards out and add details such as stitching, staples, glitter, and embellishments to add more versatility.
19 Week Insert Complete 1R
Fun tip #2: gift card packaging can make a great insert. I cut it to fit the width but it was short in height, so I added a fun wordbit from the digital kit I used to fill the space.

Day Two

19 Week Insert Complete 2
19 Week Insert Complete 2L
Fun tip #3: Google maps are great to print out or add a screenshot of for your book. It’s fun to see the route you take and a great filler card that has a reason.

Fun Tip #4: Some of my favorite thickers don’t stick very well to the cards. Rather than gluing them down, I like to attach them with staples or stitching.

Fun tip #6: Using real stamps on digital cards is a fun way to mix things. Just make sure before you print your cards that you leave enough space for the stamp!

Fun tip #9: Sequins are a fun way to fill a page protector! Just sew a small pocket in a too large protector or add them to an available pocket in a divided protector. Don’t overfill it, but don’t skimp either. It adds a cute detail that is eye catching but gives a peek of the other side.

Day 3
19 Week Insert Complete 7
19 Week Insert Complete 7L
Fun tip #10: Add a flip out insert to your photo. This one will have some private journaling added to it for even more of a personal touch. It’s a great way to add more without an entire insert.

19 Week Insert Complete 8
19 Week Insert Complete 8L
19 Week Insert Complete 8R
Fun tip #11: Sometimes simple is all you need. A little sticker on the outside of the page protector is a great way to document our game scores from the tournament of the week
19 Week Insert Complete 9

Fun tip #12: Adding thickers and handwritten journaling to an empty spot in a digital collage is a great way to add a more personal touch
