I hope you’ve had a great time recording a week in your life. I can’t wait to see your finished (or work in progress) pages in the WCS flickr gallery. Since my week of blog hosting is coming to an end, I couldn’t leave without sharing layout ideas for documenting this important week in your life. Why is it important? Because it’s a week of your life. A week that will never happen again. Moments that will never come again. Conversations that will never be repeated. That is why this week is so important.
Since I’ve been an advocate for stress free and simple scrapbooking, I’m going to share some favorite pages from our WCS readers and design team members that I encourage you to scraplift, modify, or use as a springboard for your ideas. Spend this weekend enjoying your creative process.
Scrap Only Your Photos and Words
This clean and simple layout works with only photos and journaling. You can add some patterned paper and a few embellishments to jazz it up. Channel your inner-Cathy Z.
Scrap One Day At A Time
This adorable layout features a variety of photos from one day. A series of seven layouts with this same design pattern would look nice in any album. I like how the footnote-style journaling too.
One Week on One Layout
Fellow WCS design team member Francine Clouden captured a week in her life on one layout. You can do the same thing by combining beautiful photos and eye-catching design elements to create a keepsake page for your album.
Follow a Design Pattern
Use the same design scheme on each page to create a cohesive feel for the week. Use can follow the same sketch or plug your text and images into a digital template to make this project quick and easy.
Simplify: Use 4x6 Pre-Divided Page Protectors
Use a basic photo album and slip your 4x6 photos right into the sleeves, or create 4x6 photo collages like the layout below. You could even try different size page protectors in your album like 6x6, 8x8 or 6x12 in your album.
Stay tuned tomorrow for mini-album ideas for this project. Go forth and scrap!
