But at the moment .. that's not going to happen.
I know myself well enough to say that I get bored easily and will get behind.. even further behind..... and then give it up all together. Thus leaving me with another half finished project thats nagging me.
But all of the project life stuff on Instagram is so pretty.. And everyone makes it sound so easy.
And the cute journaling cards!
I couldn't resist!
But I'm only doing it to document my summer. As a kind of test-run.
And to have an excuse to get those cute supplies obviously ;-)
I wanted to keep it small so instead of an "regular" 12 x 12 inch album I opted for a smaller Sn@p 6x8 inch album. I added some 3x4 inch sheet protectors and a pack of 4x6 inch and 3x4 inch mixed sheet protectors. All from Sn@p.
I couldn't justify the cost of a full Project Life Core kit so I opted for a mini kit, The "Cut & Paste" edition to be precise. All of te other papers, embellishments and random bits and pieces are from my stash.
Another issue was how was I going to print the photo's? I started printing them out myself on our "big"Canon printer but that was such a frustrating proces. The paper wouldn't load properly, the printing programm cropped photo's on it's own... and all of the cutting!! I did some investigating into a small Canon Selphy but quickly discovered that it would be an expensive option. So I've had the latest batch printend at HEMA.
I can just upload all the photo's on their website ( I can even upload the photo's directly from my Instagram feed) and pick them up 2 days later at their store near me.
I'm really happy with this solution.
Today I'm sharing the pages I've made so far. I'm proud to say that I'm all up to date!
Note: please excuse the glare of some lay-out's. I haven't quite figured out how best to photograph them.. if you have any tips on that.. please let me know.
The start of August in my Bullet Journal and fireworks at the fair with my lovely nephew.
Nico and my Nephew playing with lego's , a lazy sunday and pizza for dinner because nobody wanted to cook..
I'm really happy with most of the lay-out's so far.
And is really is as easy as everyone keeps saying. With our campingtrip and everything a was a bit behind ( 3 weeks I think) but I managed to get all up to date in one sitting of about 1,5 hours. So that's awesome!
I do however need to remember to snap more pictures.
I will keep this album going until the 23rd of september. That's the official start of the fall.
I really think I can finish this!
