Here is the "day five" layout before:
And here is the layout after:
Quick note on this layout - I really wanted to use what I had on hand for this album and I really loved the transparencies that Ali's stitched onto her fabric pages...but I didn't have them. I did have these handy dandy guys - printable transparencies! So I just made a bunch of circles in photoshop, outlined them in green, reproduced the heck out of them and viola! A fun transparency.
Supplies used: paper on the left under the photo by My Mind's Eye (this was purchased a few years ago and is discontinued); Number 5 cut out from this page by Making Memories; old school Dymo Label Maker; paper underneath journaling, Slice 8x8 Paper Pad: Ledger (I absolutely love this pad - I don't even have a slice lol).
Now onto "day six" before:
Note - I actually ended up swapping my "day 6" page with my "day 21" page. I realized that it was silly to have two things that held stuff in the same layout. Rookie mistake. Again lol.
Here is the layout after:
Ideally I wanted to include one of our Christmas cards in the album. But we are super tight with finances at the moment so we decided to do a Christmas web newsletter instead. But how do you put a website into an album? I used Photoshop and the "print screen" button on my keyboard to peice together our whole newsletter:
it worked pretty well! We may even do it again next year too.
Supplies used: transparency (see "day five post"); journaling label by Jenni Bowlin Studio; letter stickers by Making Memories; old school Dymo Label Maker.
Now onto "day seven" before:
Because I swapped out the envelope with the clear file folder from day 21, my finished layout looked like this:
on this layout, I used Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I had seen Ali's overlays and I just loved them. I used Illustrator to make the "baby its cold outside" title on the right page with that same style:
Other supplies used: vintage round playing cards from eBay; paper, unknown; fonts used, Arial and JSL Ancient.
Phew! Three days in one post! More to come tomorrow!
