Pregnancy and Birth Project Life album page layouts

Pregnancy. What a journey. When I found out I was pregnant, the documenter in me had all the great intentions of doing a Project Life/ pocket page/ scrapbook album dedicated to my 9 months, full of the developments, emotions, ups and downs. In reality  –  The first 3 months I spent napping, the middle 3 I spent fully enjoying life, the last 3 I spent researching and purchasing all the items a little person needs – Not leaving much time for that extra documenting.

When I played catch  up on my 2017 Project Life album, I just included all the little things I wanted to when they occurred week by week instead of a separate album. I had a great pregnancy, no cravings, no sickness so felt there was little to document except my growing bump. I took a ‘proper’ photo every month which I still need to sort and put into an album, but the more natural or selfie pictures fit nicely in my PL album.

There wasn’t much inspiration out there, I had a look on forums and on Pinterest, but there was little that was my style, or it was all old fashioned scrapbook layouts, so I just winged it in my own way!

This video looks at my last few weeks of pregnancy and the birth, walk thing through how I incorporated the photos within my pocket page spreads in my 2017 Project Life album using July Studio Calico kit and Lollipop Guild pregnancy cards.

Workspace Wednesday: Craft room tour

I’m lucky enough to have my own craft room – although its the box room – that little space is mine and I can loose myself in documenting.

Before this room gets turned in to a nursery I filmed a craft room tour, I will do another one later in the year when I have figured out how all my craft supplies are going to fit into my husbands office.
