Here’s week 47 + 48! In both of these weeks I used NO cardstock or fillers at all. I really think I might do away with them all together for 2015. It’s so nice to to not have to deal with anything but photos.

Had to do another huge 12×12 on the left because of last week.

Then on the right is a 9 squares page with snippets from the week.

Then here is Week 48 which was Thanksgiving week.

The weather was absolutely amazing on Saturday so I printed a big 8×8 of the gorgeous sky and cut it into 4. Then around it are pics of our loved ones, Dee-daddy asleep on the couch, and a pie I made.

The right is more Thanksgiving photos. Love the little series of Ansley and her new cousin Ale.

  • rachel del grosso - That first spread…. you just make the nine square pages look OH SO GOOD!ReplyCancel

  • Gert - Your photos are so gorgeous you really don’t need anything more for gorgeous PL albums.ReplyCancel

Both of these weeks I just didn’t take that many photos. It was probably due to the WAY over documenting of the week before! Haha. My go-to for when I don’t have much material to work with? 12x12s!

Here’s week 45 with Design E on the left.

Week 46! All dedicated to the Ansley/bike story.

pl2014_week4546-4

I just copy/pasted that entire blog post and printed it on cardstock!

And there we have it friends. The laziest way to do PL, but still totally worth it.

Products: We R Memory Keepers 3-Ring Album, Tiny Attacher, circle punch, date stamp, Design E, BH 6×12 page (can’t find the link),  paper source cardstock in gravel, and I printed the 12x12s through WHCC.

Hey guys! Finally getting around to posting about week in the life. Here, here, and here are the images, and below is how I incorporated those images into my PL album. Love the way this whole project turned out. Definitely lost steam towards the end, but I’ll be doing it again for sure.

Left side is Design E. Each day got an entire Design G page. I used an index tab to label each one. So on the right is half of Monday’s images….

pl2014_week44-1

…and on the back are the rest. Each front side was the am pics and the back the pm. I used a time stamp on each picture.

And the end page is another Design E. Simple and priceless documenting.

pl2014_week44-8

I made a little week in review card where I journaled about the stuff we did.

  • rachel del grosso - OH my. this is so so so good! I’ve seen a lot of design g work that i’m loving and I may just have to buy some finally!

    this is just gorgeous, Manda. So perfect!ReplyCancel

  • Jessica Wilson - Love the simplicity and I LOVE the way you used the tabs for the different days. Love that you just use what you’ve got and keep it so simple and beautiful. Always such beautiful photos as well.ReplyCancel

  • Tonia Grant - Absolutely love it! I love the idea of the tabs for the different days adn the time stamp!ReplyCancel

So, week in the life started this week. For those of you who don’t know it’s basically a week out of the year where bloggers/photographers/scrapbookers document their everyday week with photos and words. I’m giving it a go this year. It’ll be cool to look back on, and I’m having fun so far!

As I wrote about yesterday, I really REALLY need more photos of ME! I took a selfie today while I was eating lunch. It’s raining here in TN, my kids are at school, no plans to go anywhere till later….so top knot and hoodie it is. Cozy time.

About my WITL – I’m keeping it super simple, as usual, with my spreads. Photos and a time stamp.

  • andrea - so so good! That photo of you is perfect.ReplyCancel

  • Kellie Winnell - I always admire your spreads and photos in general. Like you I need to get in more, and have started. They may or may not make the album though haha.ReplyCancel

Week 43!

pl2014_week43-1

Left side is Design F. I really didn’t take that many photos this week. Two pics of A leaving music lessons and photos of my boys with their first competed Pley set! If you look really close that is Louie in the tree there. Rascal! I printed that as a 6 x 12 and cut it up.

pl2014_week43-2

Two reasons I used Design E on this side. One…because I didn’t have that many photos to work with. And two…I knew I wanted Design E to sandwich next week’s week in the life. I just used pics from last week’s 52 project to fill this side. I haven’t used any pics from that project in my Pl album at all, but I just needed to fill up space this week. :) Looooove that pic of Finn in the top right.

pl2014_week43-3

Also, as a fun little insert I printed out a funny text conversation between me and David. I just sewed and trimmed down Design J out of the small variety pack.
