I went radical this week on Project Life. I didn't round the corners. Yes, you heard that right. I left all the corners straight, square and unrounded. Deviating from a design style at this point in the game is not something I had planned to do. Those of us who get twitchy over these things will understand why I'm jokingly but not really making a big deal out of this.
But it happened by accident and I'm too cheap to fix it. Here's what happened.
In a fit of productivity over the weekend, I sat down in my big comfy chair with my laptop and printed off the whole week's worth of pictures. (I have a wireless connection to my photo printer.) And when I went in to look at the photos, I realized that I forgot to uncheck the border option in my printer settings on all but two of the photos.
So, I had a couple of options. I could trim off the border on all of them but that would make them all a bit small for the openings. I could round the corners but that would cut off the border on the corners and would look funny. I could reprint them all but ink is expensive. Or I could just go with the flow and leave it. And that's what I did. And I kinda like it. :)
So, here's the two-week spread without inserts. This week was our spring break and Andrew's birthday so there are a lot of photos.
And here's the two-page spread with the two inserts. I had to blur out a page because it has a digital layout out it that I can't show just yet.
Here's page one up close. It includes photos of the Museum of Science & Industry, photos of Andrew reading and playing on the computer during spring break, a photo out my back window, sone of Emily's friends who came over, and one of the girls sneaking the dog up on the couch. I also included one of Ali Edwards' Journal Cards here and I will definitely be using these more - love them!
Page two includes all the movies we watched during break, a trip out for ice cream, a couple of birthday-related photos about Andrew and more snuggling photos. But my favorite part of the whole darn page is the journaling card that Andrew wrote on his birthday. LOVE it!!!
The first insert is messy but oh well. This is definitely a go-with-the-flow week for me. I meant to print the journaling much lower on the cardstock but messed it up. So, instead of reprinting, I threw on the digi layout I made about Andrew's birthday. Perfect fit on an 8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock.
The second insert is all of our museum pics in half of a Design F page protector. The top slot is the only 4 x 6 and to mimic the look of the other pockets yet still use 3 x 4 photos, I simply printed 2 3 x 4 photos on one sheet of paper with a thin border between them. I also cut up our admission tickets and stapled them on.
