Week In The Life™ 2017 – Completed Album

Yes you read that right. This is my 2017 album…. from April! Last April. Let’s not wonder how it has taken me so long to share but focus on the completed pages instead. Lot’s of photos ahead……

This was my fifth time of making an album based on an in depth look at one week and the first time using the kit offered by Ali.

There were lots of great products in the kit and I really liked the album. It was good quality and deep so it easily held all the weeks stories.

The kit came with page protectors, alphas, those great transparent numbers you can see above, 4 x 6 and 3 x 4 cards and lots more. I love the look of the numbers in the 2 x 2 pocket page as an opener for the week and the circle that I cut from the packaging of the kit.

And my favourite photo from the week enlarged to 8 x 6.

I followed a similar format for each day starting with an enlarged photo and a chip board square on the left and on the right the enlarged day of the week slotted in somehow, that was also acetate and from the kit.

As you’ll see the photo numbers dwindle as the week progresses and I adjusted my pages to fit that as I went along.

I also used a wonderful rolling stamp that shows the time. Ali stamped times on her photos and I loved the idea. The stamp is also from Ali’s shop.

I wasn’t bothered that my photos ran in non chronological time order I just fitted them in dependant on size.

Below you can see a pre-printed card with the days of the week at the top. This originally also had ‘morning’ afternoon’ and ‘evening’ printed on as well. There was one for each day and I typed up a different set of topics to record and adhered them over the top.

As well as the card giving an overview of those topics I typed up a timed sheet with lots of our day on too. And added the wooden day of the week to the top.

Some days ended with more enlarged photos too.

And Tuesday.

Really love the look of that stamped time on the photos.

As you can see below I had lots to say on Tuesday so the writing went over the page.

And sometimes I added a flip up page to add extra photos.


And Thursday. If I didn’t have a chipboard square that fit the sentiment of the photo I used one of the rubber circles instead, also from the kit.

Friday. It may be months and months ago now but looking back at these photos is a treat.

This kind of documenting is harder work sometimes and clearly it has taken a while to share here although the album has been finished since last autumn but whatever the challenges it is a worthwhile project.

And Saturday.

And finally Sunday.

Another absolute favourite photo is that one above of us working on the middle border and Buddy sat overseeing the work!

There we go Week In The Life™ 2017 in the books.

    WOW you created a wonderful keepsake. There’s a lot in this album both of creative work & love. I haven’t even done a D.I.T.L. for years, let alone a week. Maybe this year. I know Ali’s got DITL coming up in March, I should try to get prepared now.
    I think this album could go into a time capsule – you have captured daily life so well.

      What kind words Mary-Lou. As I say in the post it is a lot of work but lovely to look back on. You should definitely give DITL a try!
