Two Pages and 15 Photos


For Project Life/Project 365, I saved up two weeks worth of every day events and put them on these two pages.  This was scraplifted from this page done in 2010.

The pages of the 2 page layout are sort of mirror images if one of the mirrors was upside down :-) I used the warm colors in the upper left corner of the title page and the lower right corner of the page with the journaling.  The stamped houses are from Hero Arts Whimsical Houses set.  I tried coloring them but that was just too busy with all those photos.

This ledger paper is stamped using a Technique Tuesday set and filled an empty corner.  The wood veneer and Washi tape update the look somewhat from the 2010 layout.

The details of the process are on my video on YouTube.

The sketch shown below is also in this PDF:  2 Week 2 Page Sketch

Feel free to use the sketch for your personal use.  A link back to this post would be appreciated.  

For the next couple of weeks, I'm focusing my photo taking on a typical day in our lives - capturing our routines in winter.  I thought I'd do the same in the summer and see what is different.  

Thanks for stopping by today! 


  1. Lisa, LOVE your vid! Thanks for sharing so much... I loved all the tips you gave as you designed your page... your style is similar to mine... hope I can win that cute yellow ribbon too! Enjoyed the whole vid as is! Thanks :) How do you get the typing on the little paper... do you use a typewriter? Thanks! Kathi

    1. Thank you so much, I'm glad you liked it. I type my journaling on the computer and print on regular paper. Then using removable adhesive, I put the pattern paper over the printing and send it back through the printer and reprint. I'll put this in a video soon.

  2. Both are perfect layout for this many photos.
    I love the title :)

  3. This is great! I love the way everything is laid out and what a great way to document daily life.

  4. This is a really cool take on Project Life! Love how you used so many colors and how they just flow across the pages. Definitely an awesome addition to your album :) Thanks for linking up at Avinash&Nandini!
