Week in the Life Album Completed
Posted 21st October, 2008 in
Ahead of schedule (I had wanted to finish by this weekend), I've got my Week in the Life album completed. I kept it SUPER simple so that the photos and journaling would take center stage.
I used a 12 x 12 chipboard spiral album from Rusty Pickle that has been sitting on my shelf FOREVER. I cut it down to 10" x 12" so that I could make a horizontal-oriented album. Then I cut a rectangle in the center of the front piece of chipboard so that I could decorate the front cover by letting the title page embellishments peek through the window. I painted the edges of the chipboard and covered each side with cardstock, adding photo corners to the front cover window as embellishments. I also added ribbon to the spiral binding.

Putting the album together was easier than doing all the leg-work for the photos and journaling! But worth it. :)

i love this format that you used. your book looks really great. i think this will be so cool for your kids to look back on - especially the one that isn't here yet. :)
i took photos for this and did a bit of journaling, but it will probably be months before i get it into a book. i like this simple, uniform one you did though. gives me ideas for mine!!
You have seriously inspired me to give this a try! I may have to wait till November. I may be picking your brain on how you made this look so easy. =)
That will be so fun to look back on someday!
