Well, its taken me a while to get back here, but I finally managed it. I actually completed my album a couple of weekends ago when I got together with some friends, but just haven't had a chance to get the photos taken and get them up here, until now.
So now I can finally show you how my album has come together. I am absolutely thrilled with it. I love how it looks. I know its not the most original idea, as I pretty much followed Ali step by step, but I’m ok with that. Its my first time doing it, and I really just wanted to do it and get it all done and not be pressurised by trying to make it original as well. I knew if I did that, it would probably still be sitting there half done. Next year I might tweak things a bit more, or I might not. To be honest I love what Ali does with it, so why change a good thing??
So here it is day by day. I used an American Crafts 81/2 x 11 Album , and I added some trading card protector sleeves that I bought from Trade Me in for my smaller photos. Beware, this is pretty photo intensive!
At the beginning of the album I typed up about each of us title “Life Right Now” and stuck it in a page of its own. I still need to trim that protector and sew it to fit a bit better.
On the next page I had printed out a screenshot for the weather over the next few days.
And then comes the trading card insert for Saturday

For the whole project I used 4 sheets of patterned paper, 1 KI Memories transparency and I printed some of Ali Edwards digital brushes onto white cardstock. I also used a set of tags I had bought, and a few stamps that I borrowed from a friend for the journaling, and a couple of bits and bobs that I already had in my stash, and that was pretty much it. So it was minimal product involved.
I’m now looking forward to doing a similar project in December.
Thanks for looking!
