Late Post - forgot to share previously
(I complete PL in chronological order)
6x12 Traditional Pocket Page Layout
This week I didn't have many photos.
And one of them I actually stole from my son's Insta Account!
I love that I can do that.
It allows me to still include photos of him in my album even though he is all grown up and moved out.
Since I only had a few photos this week I decided to create a 6x12 layout (front and back).
This is the week Luke Perry died.
So Sad; RIP Luke.
I wanted to capture that because I was a huge "90210" fan, and though I didn't keep up w/ his career afterwards, I still felt sad about his death.
His death was sad in general of course, but I was also sad because I felt like a piece of my youth had died.
I like to capture Pop Culture events along w/ my daily life in my Project Life Album.
Even the sad stuff.
I created the journaling on the Project Life App and printed it on regular paper, tore the bottom of it, and adhered it to a Studio Calico 3x4 Pocket card.
As you can see I wrinkled it a bit sliding it is the pocket, oops!
The bottom photo(s) are funny IG posts about pet names.
You all know I love animals and silly IG posts and memes.
These literally made me LOL so I wanted to include them in my album.
I had a hard time deciding how to incorporate them.
I only had a little bit of room since I was just doing the 6x12 insert, and I thought it might look heartless to include something funny on the same page as something sad, but then I realized...that's how life is: funny and happy moments mixed in w/ the bad and unhappy moments, so I went ahead and included it.
BTW - You'll have to be familiar w/ celebrity names to understand these, rapper names specifically for the right-hand side (see next slide for close up).
The flip side is another photo of Hamlet napping #SorryNotSorry
He does it a lot and I love his cute face too much not to take photos and include them in my album...even if they all look the same!
Also included is the photo I stole from my son.
On this spread I did something I rarely do:
instead of using 2 different Pocket Cards for the journaling, I just used the back side of the cards used on the front side.
As I said, it's a rarity but sometimes it just works for me so I go w/ it.
But honestly I have so many cards I need to use that I probably shouldn't have, LOL
I used lots of Elle's Studio, Studio Calico, and Kelly Purkey items on here.
