PL Week 5 -February-
It is amazing that i am still keeping up with my Project Life Album. Weekly spreads work better than accumulating pictures and stories for the entire month; i tried monthly catch-ups last year, and i found that i rushed through the pictures just to come up with a format. After 5 weeks in 2016, and i am really enjoying the process, and how easily is coming together.
As we start February, i thought I would try and keep up with this month's traditional colors -pinks, reds, white, and black-... The pink tag and the center strip come a cut-up page from We R Memory Keepers' Wildflower collection. I have added a few sticker from Me And My Big Idea's Soft Spoken collection, Dollar Store and Crate Paper's Hello Love collection.
|All these cards come from different Simple Stories Snap collections.|
Since I didn't have that many pictures this week. I went ahead and used a baseball card protector sheet to build the second page spread. The dimensions for the cards were 2.5 x 3.5 inches, so i used Adobe Lightroom to create a collage of pictures to fit in these spaces. The cards used come from different pocket card patterned papers from Amy Tangerine, and Dear Lizzy, the sizes just worked for this format. The bottom two cards had to be trimmed to fit.
Here is what the complete 2 page spread looks like... I hope to keep up with these months color theme and not fall behind on my weekly spreads.
|The many different cards work in this layout since they share a common color palette.|
