Now, I want to share something fun I've been doing: Word a Day.
The scrapbooking group I am in, the Scrappin' J's, has started something fun. One J, Janet, collected words from everyone--future journaling prompts--and she's been sending them out every day. I started a mini album using the prompts. Here's what I did:
I used a Fancy Pants Designs Brag Book. It had more pages than I needed, and I didn't need pocket or photo pages for this project, so I removed the covers, the took out the pages and kept only what I needed. (I'll use the pockets and photo pages for a travel mini later this summer, probably.)
The papers and embellishments I used came largely from Fancy Pants' upcoming line What a Wonderful Day. It was so colorful and fun, it was perfect for this project.
I tended to do a cluster of embellishments to house the title and frame a photo. The photos I've used are either new ones I've printed or ones from my childhood I didn't use on a mini album I made this year for Write Click Scrapbook. I especially like using the Patterned Envelopes or Decorative Bags to house the title. They were so cute, and perfectly sized.
Here's the rest of the pages I've made so far:
And here are the words I've done or am working on so far:
- Bucket List
- RIP (for this one I may write about things I don't miss from my childhood. Neon and lace gloves, anyone?)
So tell me: when's the last time you did a project about yourself? And when are you planning on doing one in the future?
