Of course the biggest attraction to any type of 'Project Life', 365 daily is documenting each week/month of the year. But sometimes I find when I'm doing a weekly layout, I become stressed trying to cram the bigger moments in with the rest of the everyday. So that got me thinking, why not just showcase them on a separate page? After all, it's MY album, I don't have to follow any set rule on creating only weekly pages.
Here is an example of a page I just finished - documenting a book signing of my favourite Author. I started off trying to fit it all into a 4x6 and 3x4 pocket and was so frustrated. I had an itch to add more and didn't want to stifle the memory. So if you get an itch to keep playing with your photos, feel free to expand on it!
I thought it was fun to add Audrey Neal's time stamps to represent the entire day. So I was excited to find a similar PL layout in the P&Co. Pocket Gallery documenting a day-in-the-life by GiadaR.
Another fun idea outside of your 'weekly' layouts could be focusing on everyday recurrences. My daughter draws all the time. Sometimes I add her doodles within a weekly layout, but occasionally they become overwhelming! So last year I dedicated a page to them all. This way I can remember them forever. :)

Here I featured some of my favourite T.V. shows that I 'binge watched' this year (some for a second round! LOL).
Then there here are times I want a little extra breathing room, but don't need to commit to an entire page. Inserts are a fun way to add some flair to your album as well. Inserts can come in different sizes, but for my album I used a couple of 6x12 ones:
In traditional scrapbooking a pocket sleeve is used, however in a digital album (that is printed) it is done a little differently. When the album is printed, it will still print the entire page (showing in white). Cut along the edge of your insert (getting rid of the white space) and add a tab (such as washi tape!) to the side for easy flipping. Be sure to do another insert (in same size) for the page behind as well. I haven't actually finished my printed album to be able to show you this, but I did find an example of one from the blog 'Family Bees' (shown below):

I hope you enjoyed this little bit of inspiration! Remember to keep scrapping those weeks, but if you find some weeks are crazy and filled with too many memories, feel free to expand the week out a bit! I give you permission! :)
I had a lot of fun with my Binge-Watching layout. I made a little filler card for it and thought I'd share it with other fellow addicts like me who may want to document this as well (or just include it in your weekly layouts).
Just click the link to my blog Scrap Tales to download! Enjoy.

Hello fellow Scrappers!
For those who stopped by from my P&Co. blog post, welcome!
If you're like me, you may have an enjoyment (addiction?) towards watching t.v... especially series related shows. And usually when I'm able to watch an entire season, I tend to binge-watch it until the wee hours into the night!
I recently did a scrapbook page for my Project Life album about all the shows I binged on this year, and created a little filler card.
So I'm offering it to you, fellow scrappers in 3x4 size. I hope you have use for it! Download link below...

I've been slacking! I recently moved, and everything has taken a back-burner... my poor neglected blog. :) Anyway, here are some layouts from P&Co. I did (sort of) recently! Please Note : some are missing as they are either from a previous blog post or PL layouts to be updated on different post. Please click for credits!
