A Day in The Life-Monday

Today was day one in "A Day in the Life". It wasn't an interesting day but that's the goal of the project I suppose. To gather details on the everyday. Last night I set up my layout process for the book in advance in order to make the process a little more simple and easy. It's going to be housed in the 8*8 album I used for the 2008 Week in the Life scrapbook. There was just enough room for a title page and 7 single layouts-one for each days. Here's a shot of the cover.


And here is a shot of the pieces I'm using for each page. Right now it looks like there will be a 4*6 photo and a few 2*2 or 2*3 photos. The frame is for the day of the week and the date. On one edge of the page I used a little boarder strip. The tag will be for today's journaling.

Note: the 4*6 piece is a mat for the photo. I cut the piece out of it to use the pattern paper on the B side for the inside of each frame piece. Waste not want not right?


I'm sure i'll add some interesting aspects to the pages once I get a chance to put them all together next week when the photos are developed. All the piece i'm using for this are from the September kit from Studio Calico, Back 40.

Today also happened to be reveal day over at Studio Calico for subscribers. I picked up a few stamps and some navy jute to use on future layouts. I got:

*storytime number stamps (willing to bet you will see these in the December Daily)

Midnight tonight "On the Easel" goes on sale for non-subscribers. Be sure to check it out. It looks fantastic!
