Welcome to Project Life – Week 3! I’ve seen a lot of questions lately regarding using different style page protectors. Specifically, when you’ve used something different (say Design I, in my case last week) than you normally do (like Design A) how do you handle that the following week? I think it’s a great question. In my case this week I knew I’d have less space overall for photos. For the title card I used the side that would generally be for vertical orientation and trimmed off the top 2 inches. I filled one 4×4 pocket by trimming down a 4×6 photograph and the other with a photograph from Instagram. You’ll see that layout at the end of this post.
It can be a little trickier when you’ve used a style like Design B. Here’s a few ideas for filling those vertical pockets. Sometimes it encourages me to think outside the box like I did here with a series of ‘first day of school’ photos of Lance from Pre-K through his first day of this school year, 4th grade.
I adore this idea by Elise Blaha Cripe. You could fill each slot with a 4×6 card or patterned paper. I’m going to use one soon just so I can fill it with 4×6 cards!
I love that they now design the title cards to go either way. It’s easy to slide one in the vertical pocket and iPhone photos shot vertically translate well into a vertical 4×6 pocket like the photograph of the Space Needle.
For this page I cropped what was a 4×6 horizontal photograph for the pocket on the left and enlarged a 4×6 horizontal photograph for the middle and right pocket.
The kit I used this week is the Seafoam Edition. You can find a Project Life retailer here or find the entire line of products here. Project Life was created by Becky Higgins. You can find out all about this awesome approach to memory keeping here.
