Introducing...Everyday Life Journal

Monday, December 12, 2011

The Everyday Life journal.  This is something I have been thinking about for quite a while.  My plans for the new year include Project Life for documenting the happenings in my family's life.  However, I thought to myself, what about something just for me?  Ever since opening up shop on Etsy, I haven't had much time to just scrapbook for myself.  I find that I don't really have the time to dedicate to full layouts or albums and more often than not, they go incomplete.

If I wanted to actually go ahead and document things just for me, then it would have to be small enough that it wouldn't take much time to finish a page.  It would also have to be premade so I wouldn't waste time trying to find that piece of patterned paper to match. also had to be open-ended enough that I could go as crafty as I wanted. new Everyday Life journal!  And since I'm always looking for great products to offer my customers, I have gone ahead and put together several versions of my journal.


The journal will include these basic components:

- 2 kraft chipboard covers (front embossed with white)
- 30 pages of various double-side patterned papers, single-side patterned paper, textured cardstock
- 1 large manila shipping tag
- 1 coin envelope
- a pair of 2" binding rings
- 5 assorted striped jumbo paperclips (colors may vary from those pictured)

Visit my Etsy shop to see the listings:

So far, I have 2 different color schemes to offer...brights and neutrals.  I waffled so hard between the 2 sets, but I decided for my own journal to use the neutral color scheme.  Lately I've been loving the look of black&white photos and thought that a neutral scheme would compliment it best.  

Below you can see the papers that I've included in my journal: 

I'm so excited to start this journal!  Please join me if you'd like.  I would love to see what everyone does to document their own everyday life!
