Hello! It’s me Kasia and I’m here today to talk about my Life Pages process a bit. Today I want to focus on my way of making pages If you are more into watching than into reading I made a short video giving you a peek into my process. While making this particular spread I was using only Life Pages Main Kit, home printed photos and some white card stock.
For me everything starts with photos. Depending on how many are they I decide on single or double page spread. After downloading them from both my camera and phone (I use Instagram and Afterlight applications to alter default pictures) I brows them on the computer and sketch a layout in my notebook. I do not use any predesigned grids, just draw them straight in with a marker and fill in with pencil notes. I only have two types of 4×6 pockets so I have to modify them slightly to fit 3×4 cards and get different page designs. While making my spreads I tend to stick to my sketches a lot they show me where I want to put photos and where the journalling cards will fit in.
In my project I usually use the things I already have in my scrapbooking stash, but having a kit of cards makes it so much easier. September’s kit is amazing and so well coordinated that I’d say this spread created itself, I only added some photos If you look close through my PL pages you’ll notice one common thing in all of them. Each week has a photo of my Mondays breakfast and a week overview journalling. The photo is my small ongoing project, I think that a nice breakfast that you celebrate will make a good start of the week and Mondays aren’t so bad anymore.
I am a quite regular project maker, making my pages week by week. When I fall behind it’s no more than 2-3 weeks. I like to remember vividly what happened and what’s the story behind the photos. My counting doesn’t start from the beginning of the year but from the week I got engaged. In this particular project I want to document the first year of our engagement We’ll see later how everything will evolve.
Thank you for reading I hope you had fun and enjoyed the movie I made. If you want ere are some detail photos:
