Here are a few pages I made last year for Project life. My new lens allows me to actually photograph these pages!
This spread is from Thanksgiving week. I added a 12x6 page protector as well, to add some extra photos. I also added an 8.5x11 sheet which holds some recipes I used for Thanksgiving (not pictured).
And another layout...
This one is from my birthday week and I added a birthday card in a small page protector between the two pages (not pictured.)
Another way of adding extra photos is to use a tiny attacher or sewing machine and add a 12x6 page protector to the outside which folds in. I had cut up a 12x12 divided page protector for my Thanksgiving page and then I added the leftover to the edge of this page:
And here it is closed...
I had to snip those 4x6 photos by about a 1/4 inch to make room for the staples. But it turned out well! It closes and opens easily.
This week I also made my own customized journal cards on the back of some of the ugly cards from last year! There were some leftover cards that I didn't care for, but I hate wasting anything! I used some stamps and ink to make my own cards that match my book for 2012. Hopefully I will photograph and share soon.
