Hello, it's Jennifer Larson, sharing my latest layout documenting my everyday life. This time I decided to focus on an element of my everyday life that seems to recur: the busy time.
The week at the end of October seemed particularly, overwhelmingly busy. We were rushing from lessons to birthday to practice to musical concert, in between all of my normal weekend business of grading student papers. I spent the week taking photos before I dashed off to the next thing. Here's the page I made:
Collecting Moments Hallmark / Collecting Moments Inch by Inch / Collecting Moments Potpourri / Collecting Moments Button Set / Collecting Moments Patterned Envelopes / Collecting Moments Ephemera Pack / Collecting Moments Decorative Bags / Collecting Moments Small tags / Collecting Moments Little Labels / Collecting Moments Sticker Fundamentals
I printed my photos 4x3, a standard Project Life size. Though I don't do Project Life, the size is convenient for fitting many pictures easily onto a page. I have a folder on my computer with many PSE templates I've made that fit several smaller photos onto a 4x6 print; that way I can print locally (and quicker!). I don't print on my home printer because it's not the best quality.
Here's some details:
When I cut the title on my Cameo, I cut it twice in different colored pattered paper. I love layering the title.
I used the die cut numbers in the ephemera pack to label the photos; then I used the numbers in the Sticker Fundamentals to document the photos. List journaling is especially easy to use when documenting the busy time!
Layering the envelopes on top of the decorative bags and adding some die cuts and buttons is one of my favorite ways to embellish a page. And one final note: I used two different papers for my background because I didn't have two pieces that were the same, but I like the mixed look. I'm definitely going to do this more often. Happy accidents!
Thank you for checking out my page! It's hard to find time to record the busy times when we are running around, but snap some photos on the run and see where they take you!- Jennifer
