Can you believe we are almost halfway through January already Simple Stories fans? I am in full swing trying to organize and prepare for the start of the semester. So, I wanted to be sure to get on top of my Project Life album. As promised, I'm going to share my journey at times here on the blog. I was so excited to put week one together.
I again started with a divided page protector with 6, 4x6 pockets. But I had a lot to discuss during this first week, and too many photos to use as well. So, I made this week a 2-page spread.
Once again, I used mostly the Year-O-Graphy line.
Here's how the first side came together:
I love how versatile that line is! How much do I love that this line features almost a full sheet of number stickers? Oh yes, SO much!
I also grabbed some of my favorite Simple Stories/Unity Stamps for week one. I have to say that I LOOOVE my Unity/Simple Stories stamps. They create such wonderful, clear images!
But I think my favorite part of this week is the second page to the spread. I was recently perusing our website, and I am embarrassed to admit that I didn't know something about Simple Stories until quite recently. Each line features a full page, 12x12 special journaling sheet. How did I not understand this before? So, I decided to try it with my Week 1 layout and I have to say, this paper is brilliant! I absolutely love how it came out. I simply added a few photos and a couple of embellishments and voila'. This page was done.
I loved sort of freestyling with this particular page. I didn't actually do the list of top ten, but the photos captured the sentiment.
When I'd run out of things to say about the week, I just added a label sticker and my current favorite Simple Stories/Unity stamp
