project life 2013 | weeks 3 + 4

i'm changing things up a little bit with my project life pages. i am trying something a little new + different for me. i'm going square. yep, square photos + square journaling cards. i've always loved the look of square project life pages and i've been wanting to try them. but since i'm such a creature of habit, i just stuck with the rounded corners because it is what i've always done. but after looking at all of the project life 2013 creative team inspiration on becky's blog, i decided to just do it the way that i want to.

you see, i love clean lines and straight edges. and i love white space even more. so i not only went with square photos but i took it one step further and added a white border to all of my photos. i feel like this gives my pages a more cohesive look. and i think that i might even make my white photo borders a little thicker next time.

week 3:  these days, i'm capturing everyday life with both my iphone and my big camera.

left page: my week in review card is in the top left pocket, as always. i put some text on some photos and highlighted some iphone photos in the 3x4 pockets with little stories underneath.

right page: lots of photos and one journaling card.

a journaling card with a little something quinn said to me - it is kind of gross, but i want to remember all the little boy things he says. and an iphone photo of quinn sleeping on my lap at dinner.

i used ali edward's hello life stamps for the everyday life journaling card. i also found a little drawing that quinn made for tate and taped it onto a journaling card and had quinn write his name on it.

this is an iphone photo of tate having a slow start to his morning. i love the angle and added a little text in avenir font.

week 4: keeping it simple with mostly photos again. some more text on a few photos to tell more of the story.

left side: little bits + pieces of real life this week.

right side: some field day photos, a quote that made a difference to me this week, a funny thing quinn said about his brother and my weekly instagram collage template.

moving the bike seats was a little thing this week, but those little things are what keeps our lives moving forward.

i split this photo and put it in the middle of design a pocket pages.
