project life, week in the life

week in the life 2014 pages are complete!

ali edwards  is such a smart chick. she comes up with amazing projects to help us document the little pieces of life that might otherwise be overlooked.

even though she had her week in the life scheduled for the end of october, my work and home schedule wouldn’t have allowed me to spend the time during that week so I did mine at the end of september instead. and it’s so weird that the weeks i end up picking, always have just off-the-wall events that are totally NOT our normal routines. but i like that.

for this project, i used the grateful and dwell kits by the amazing deena rutter.

Every Little Bit: Grateful Bundle   Every Little Bit: Dwell Bundle


and september’s storyteller kit by just jaimee:

the cover page for my 12×12 will just fit into my 2014 album. no special binder for this project, i’m just treating it like an extra long and full week.


when i design intro pages, i like to use as much of the colors from the kits i’m using as possible to give a full picture of the colors and items that will follow in the project. this way, it feels more like a separate project, but really isn’t. 🙂 does any of that even make sense? 🙂

aaaaanyhoo…here we go!

monday was a good intro to the week. the family was prepared to have the camera on them a bit more and i wanted to include the normal glimpses into our everyday like matt’s coffee and my office view.

i sneaked in a 6×8 page for extra spillover.




these kits weren’t meant to get together at all. but as my mama always said about fashion, it doesn’t have to match, it just has to go. and these colors and vibes just go together.




the technology at our fingertips is amazing. i love being able to screenshot things from my phone, like i did here with my calendar. also, we went to dinner so i saved the receipt and stapled it to a coordinating card. mostly to remind ourselves that eating dinner out is never worth it. 😉

this style of scrapbooking, (you know, the everyday stuff,) is so fun because when we look back on this week i will remember how many times i listened to all about that bass.

one of my favorite parts of these pages is the little day of the week flags that i used to start off each day. it just set the tone for each page.

and a special bonus card that i threw in at the end is from the talented leslie ann harvey.


and there you have it. week in the life twenty fourteen is done!

hope you enjoyed! 🙂

  1. I love love your week in the life!! Do you often use digital kits? Do you find it expensive to print? Do you print at home? I really love the kits you choose, the colors are amazing. Have always worried that using digital kits in a hybrid way would be too expensive.
