The Rest of the Story--WITL Day 4

So I have a big ole' honkin' announcement to make.  Just the other day I got that happiest email in my inbox!  American Crafts Blog has invited me to be their guest designer for the week of December 28th.  I have to admit that I nearly lost control of all bodily functions.  As it was, I couldn't even talk to tell my family what I was hyperventilating over.  Soooo very excited to be a part of American Crafts awesome products!  Can't wait to play!  I hope you'll check them out if you haven't already.


I can hardly get over the fact that I will be in the company of the likes of Jenni Hufford, Stephanie Howell and Marcy Penner and so many more amazing scrap artists.  This is a scrap girl's dream come true!


Alright, on to everyday life (its certainly not everyday that I get such an email, I can assure you!)


Yay, I got Day 4 photographed in total!  Here is the whole enchilada.


By the way, if you want to see all of my WITL posts, there is a button at the top so you can see all the posts together if you so desire.


I make a calendar page which lists what happened as it happened that day, decorate that with washi tape and fabrips and punch it to slip it in my binder.  I've found that you can't decorate the side you intend to punch with fabrips as they are too thick to even slip into the punch. 





For this day I had less photos than for some other days.  Or at least less that I thought were worthy of printing large.  


Layout 1 is pretty much an embellished photo.





Here is the spread together



I've been using the 9 slot page protectors meant for baseball cards from The Container Store.  You get a pack of 10 for $1.99 which is a gonga deal.  I get my 8.5x11 page protectors there as they come in every configuration you can think of and they are all only $1.99 for a pack of 10!



I print out my cards on kraft cardstock.  This is quite a chore as I have two printers and it's hit or miss which of them will choose to print on cardstock on any given day.  Makes me crazy. I need a new printer, I really do. (strongly considering ditching my wish for new pots and pans and just putting up that fund for a printer.  But then I worry that it won't be any better.  Thoughts???)



After I get everything printed out and cut up I slip them in the page protectors. I try to get them in as much of an 'as it happened' kind of order as possible.   I like to intersperse the pictures and the documentation cards.  I've also been decorating with washi tape and stickers and friends (friends of stickers that is, not parts of my friends).









Looking at how full this is already I think it's gonna be quite full by the time I am done.  Good thing I didn't do even more!


Have a great day!  And thanks so much for stopping by.  I love reading your comments and really appreciate that you take the time to visit me.
