Project Life 2012: Weeks 12 and 13Posted: April 16, 2012
Wanted to keep things super simple in an attempt to catch up. LOVING Instagram for Project Life. I always have my phone and have started to rely on it far more than the DSLR, I need to make more of an effort to pick up the camera now. Most memorable event of the week: registering my oldest for KINDERGARTEN. Ack.
Trying to incorporate more of my story into Project Life and having a lot of fun with it…
Instagram madness. LOVE:
An Instagram heavy photo week, did some experimenting with photo size and placement:
Insta-collage of a super easy activity (sticker dot tracing) I did with Jake, journaled below. Liking the simple date cards: easy and quick. I nearly died when I discovered washi tape at TARGET!! My two loves, combined, swoon.
Inspired by a library book, I not only broke my never buy a book for more than $2 rule, but I baked a WHOLE chicken. Crazy. And deserving of a prime PL spot, heh. Photo of finished chicken on the library card that can be slid out of the pocket.
Ty’s FIRST handwritten letter. To Grandma. Swoon. Had to include it. Makes me smile every time I see it:
Week 14 progress shot. Working on two inserts: a page of instagram shots and a 6 x 12 photo from one of our Easter egg hunts:
Thought I’d share how I am printing out my Instagram photos. I bought Collage Maker on the lap top. I upload the Instagram photos to iPhoto, then put them into a simple 2 x 3 collage. Save. Upload to Costco.com and order either 4 x 6, 5 x 7, or 8 x 10 depending on where I want the photos to go and what I want to do with them. SUPER happy with the quality and you can’t beat the price. All of the photos in my Spring Break page are from various 5 x 7 collages.
For 6 x 12 photos, I ordered an 8 x 12 print from Costco and trimmed off two inches…
For a perfect fit in a 6 x 12 pocket…
Week 15 photos in place, ready to go:
