Week In The Life™ 2016 – in the album

week-front

This has been a while in the finishing but at last I have 2016 in the album.

week-in-the-mon

I went back to a design I used in 2010 which was my version of Ali’s design for that year.

Think that I’ve found my favourite way of documenting this project. The simplicity of the design is why I love it. One spread per day, the words and feature photo on the left and a collage of photos on the right.

week-in-the-wed

Yes, there is more computer work to get the photos cropped and into a template in Photoshop but then I just printed the right side pages all as one, trimmed and popped into the pocket page.

The left page was designed to leave a space for the photo, which I printed as a 4 x 6 and added onto the cardstock, and a space for the strip of patterned paper. I printed these here at home too.

week-in-the-fri

There are compromises to this design because I just can’t include as many photos as I generally had for each day but I don’t mind the compromise on this occasion.

week-in-the-sat

The words add to the story of the photos and I like that balance.

week-in-the-sunday

I included these pages in the same 6 x 8 album I used for Week In The Life™ in 2015 which is a Simple Stories one. Combining the two years in one little book made me very happy!
