Odessa’s Week in the Life!

I posted a couple of weeks about about my Week in the Life plans and I’m back with the finished pages! I decided to do a Travelers Notebook since I was just doing a story a page.

I decided to use the featured collection from April Lilli this month – Crate Paper Flora. It has some really pretty floral prints that I was just smitten with!

All I needed to put this together was the sheets of paper, the Flora Ephemera Pack and some vellum that I picked up to print on. And pictures and words of course. Ha.

I made sure to keep some notes and journal in a file on my computer through the week so I wouldn’t be stuck trying to remember things when I worked on it later. Which made putting it together SUPER easy! I just formatted things to fit on the page, printed and cut.

I used this tutorial to bind my pages together. And for the pages, I just picked some of my favourite patterned papers from the collection and cut them down to the right size, bound them together and added my photographs and words printed on vellum.

Then I used the alpha stickers to add the day of the week above the picture and some stickers and ephemera bits throughout. And done!

I love the springy florals in this collection – it gave a nice overall bright but not too bright feel to this notebook. Pink and mustard are my favourites so it was nice to see them in here!

I really liked this approach to WITL – I already do a weekly spread and really put all sorts of stuff in there and wanted to try something different.

One thing I really liked was the circle pictures. I used the ABM app to create a collage with a circle in the middle where I put my picture. I made my background a white fill instead of another picture and then cut the photo out. Easy to do and a cute effect!
